Fewer, Better Things

If I had to think of an ideal way to live, it would most definitely follow the “fewer, better” mantra. Keeping the things that bring joy, giving away the things that don’t, and investing in the experiences, memories, and things that will last a lifetime. While I will never be a minimalist (much to the chagrin of my significant other), I can work on ways to minimize the amount of “things” that I consume and keep, and find new ways to repurpose, donate, or recycle the things that I don’t need.

Fewer, Better Things with Cuyana

I was recently introduced to the brand Cuyana who epitomize the “fewer, better things” lifestyle. In fact, they champion the #fewerbetter hashtag on social media, and it’s clear they’re pieces are something different. Clean, minimal lines. Beautiful fabrics and neutral tones that can be mixed and matched effortlessly. Silhouettes that are flattering and timeless. The perfection of these styles is in their simplicity, and in their ability to fit into any woman’s existing wardrobe. From a new button up for work, a timeless crossbody that fits just the essentials, or a trench coat that will keep your outfit from getting soaked in a rain shower, each piece was created to fill a particular need.

The Dress You Need to Add to Your Closet Stat

You know you’re in trouble when you walk into Target and the entire clothing section is 25% off. That happened to me a few weeks ago when I went to innocently pick up a prescription. I’ll just take one small peek, I said to myself. And then I returned the next day because I just couldn’t quit. Fortunately, I got out spending less than $100, but not before this little yellow dress captured my heart. Well, and a few more goodies, but I’ll be sharing those later. ;)

This little yellow dress has bell sleeves, a tie neck, and is the perfect amount of flowy. With a floral print on a mustard fabric, it’s the perfect mix of 70s vibes and updated to make it on-trend for spring. While it might be too short for the office, it’s most definitely perfect for any casual get together, date night, or to throw on over a bathing suit come summer. (Am I the only one dreaming of the warm weather of summer?!) Oh, and did I mention it was less than $30? Total score.

5 Ways to Support Women // International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day! It’s definitely a day to celebrate all of the amazing women in your world, and the women who came before us who paved the way for us to have the rights we have today. While I feel incredibly lucky to live in the time and area that I do, I am well aware that our work is far from over.

As someone who works in the tech industry, I work with a lot of incredibly smart and talented people. What I have come across, however, is a disparity in the female representation in the more technical fields. It’s something that is constantly evolving as more and more women find career paths in technology. In my short career, I have noticed an uptick in the female representation in the tech space, which is an amazing thing to see. That doesn’t mean, however, that women are always treated as equals. In fact, I’ve had several instances where I can confidently say that if I had been a man, I probably wouldn’t have been met with such hostility and opposition by those in positions of power.

Whether it was intentional or not, men often have a way of talking down to younger female employees, referring to us as “girls”, or calling us too emotional or sensitive. The fact of the matter is that women and men often approach situations differently, and if we’re going to make progress, we need to understand this and move forward. As a young career person, I know that I am just as capable of having good ideas and am able to complete my work just as well as the next guy or gal who is a few years my senior.

How to Support Women on International Women’s Day

What I’m getting at here is that as much as I’d love to say that women and men are equal in pay and opportunity, I don’t believe we’re there yet. And until we are, we need to support our fellow women and work to be sure that our voices are heard. So what, as females, can we do to empower the other women in our lives? On International Women’s Day, I thought it was appropriate to share some of the ways in which I’ll be supporting my fellow females today and in the future, even if I’m unable to take the day off work.

5 Ways to Add Spring Style to Your Outfits Now

As winter comes to a slow close, I’ve been dying to incorporate some of spring’s bright colors and trends into my outfits. Bright corals, pops of pink and pastel hues, baby blues, and beige-y blush tones dominated the runways for Spring 2017, and those colors have definitely been hitting store racks.

5 Ways to Add Spring Style to Your Outfits Now

Color was the inspiration for this outfit. When I saw these adorable Superga Floral Sneakers, I knew I had to have them in my life. (And a big thank you to J.Jill for sending these to me! I’m really fortunate to receive wonderfully gifted pieces from them every month!) They have just the right amount of classic style to make them feel timeless, but the pattern keeps them feeling fresh and new. When I was thinking of how I wanted to style them, I had several outfits in mind, but the combination I’m sharing today is my favorite! Whether you’re incorporating a funky patterned shoe into your work wardrobe, or are just styling it for a weekend of brunching and errands (my favorite kind!) I hope these style tips will be helpful!
