I'm so excited that the pair of striped gym shorts I collaborated on with Krass & Co. is now available, just in time for the holidays! I love the way they turned out: classic, nautical, and preppy all over! Enter to win a pair for yourself below and be sure to place your order before they sell out!


My mom and I popped into Nordstrom when we were up in Rhode Island for Thanksgiving and had a lot of fun sampling perfumes (thank God for coffee beans...) and a few beauty products. Marc Jacobs Daisy is already in my rotation but we both surprisingly really liked Katy Perry's Killer Queen fragrance (a similar floral scent — I'm so predictable!). The bottle is super unique and truth be told I kind of have a girl crush on her after watching her documentary on Netflix. I decided to create a little wishlist of color-coordinated items that would look extra pretty sitting together on your countertop or dresser. Pink, orange, and a little sparkle... Yes please!

Oh man, can you believe it's December?! It's crunch time for the boutique and I have lots of fun holiday gatherings on the calendar! Work hard, play hard ;) It's always this time of year that I look at my closet and wish I owned more dresses. I just don't gravitate to them on an average day since I work from home (by contrast, you should see my assortment of dark denim...) but now is definitely the time for me to pick up a pretty new one (or two!). So here we go: twenty picks at different price points (five of them are under $100!)... And I even included some that aren't navy blue ;) Enjoy!
