Weekend Reading.

Hiiii from Dallas! I’m traveling again this weekend, this time for a blogger conference. I got in Wednesday night and stayed with Molly for the first two nights… and now I’m at the Joule hotel downtown. It’s been really fun getting to see all of my blogger pals..

Spring Wardrobe Refresh.

Here’s a little tip for you. Whenever I feel like I have nothing to wear (which is alarming, considering the state of my closet right now… but still seems to happen all the time) I take a peek at Nordstrom’s T.B.D. department. If you’re as crazy as I am, I’d recommend bookmarking it and checking back in on the new arrivals every week…

Helen Ficalora: Mother’s Day Giveaway.

Out of all of my jewelry, the piece I get asked about most often is the charm necklace I wear (nearly every day) from Helen Ficalora. This necklace is really special to me, and I’ve had it for nine years now. When I first moved to New York, my best friend Nicolette and I each bought the gold chain + our first initial. The charms were, (at the time, when we were roommates and in our early twenties) a major investment for each of us…

Earth Day with Lands’ End.

Happy Earth Day! While I believe in living as green as possible every day, Earth Day is a great time to reflect, set goals, and think about what you can do be even better to the Earth the following year. My youngest sister is the environmentalist in the family and constantly reminds me that I can be doing more. If you’re already doing the basics (recycling, minimizing electricity usage) there’s other things you can do.

Hilton Head Travel Diary.

This past weekend was, for lack of a better word, out of a dream. Hilton Head Island invited Jess, Hallie, Caitlin and I down to the island for a long weekend full of golf (The RBC Heritage Tournament), R&R, and good Southern food. I’d never been before, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect, but I fell in love with the island. We stayed in the most amazing house in Sea Pines, right on the beach.

I <3 Flamingos.

A few things: Did you read that piece on The Cut, titled “How to Get Your Body Ready for Caftan Season?” You should. It had me in stitches. Also, it is a pretty good description of what Hallie, Jess, and I got up to this weekend at Hilton Head. All of the foods. And zero regrets. But guys. A good coverup is important…
