Marissa Webb for Banana Republic

It’s here, it’s here! I’m like a giddy little school over here. If you’ve missed on on this most recent development, Marissa Webb was hired on at Banana Republic as creative director. Now, her spring/summer 2015 collection is live (and shoppable). I first took note of Marissa when I was lucky enough to attend her show at NYFW a few seasons ago and have been hooked every since. Her effortless styling and silhouettes not only found in her own collections, but are being recreated for #thenewBR! After a dreary winter and a slow start to spring, this collection of silky fabrics and flowing silhouettes are just what we need to brighten our day! Now what piece to invest in for spring…

Life Lately

Well, it’s been a few weeks and it’s safe to say I’ve turned into the “occasional” blogger. Let me dust off the good ole’ blog and catch you guys up! I realize the last few posts I’ve done have all been giveaways. Which is awesome, however; I’m more than ready to bring back some original content for you all soon (that long awaited revamp will come eventually…)!

To recap the past few weeks I’ll share a few instagrams!

Late February brought closing on our new home and then heading to Kansas City to speak at our first GBS Workshop!

After a whirlwind weekend, we’ve slowly become settled in our new house (however; I’ve yet to unpack all of my clothes….I’m planning a huge closet purge and soon will be highlighting the capsule wardrobe I’ve been planning) or become settled into my new office…all in due time!

Last weekend, Emily and I teamed up again to style our latest cover style shoot for Juice Magazine. Check out the sneak peek below (how awesome is it when your model randomly has a mini trampoline in her trunk?!), and catch up on my latest features here!

I’ll be hoping to check in soon, I will be sharing some inspiration for our new house decor along with my capsule wardrobe I’ve been planning the past few weeks! For day to day updates, follow along on Instagram! xx

Shopbop Sale!


It’s that time of year everyone, the spring Shopbop sale event! We are getting settled into our new house and I’m slowly unpacking my closet and ridding myself of the items I haven’t worn in months or years. I’ve been inspired lately by all of the capsule wardrobes popping up and I plan to challenge myself this spring (which can arrive any day now…) to bust out my own capsule wardrobe.  With the help of the discounts Shopbop’s providing, I’ll be picking up these, updating my t-shirt collection with this & this, and adding this to add to my capsule wardrobe (more details to come…)!
