The Best of Cuyana // The Top 10+ Picks that I LOVE

Occasionally someone asks me what my favorite piece in my closet is, or what one fashion item I can’t live without. My mind often wanders from one of my favorite vintage dresses to a favorite pair of ankle boots, but often lands on one of the many Cuyana pieces I own. After all, their carryall tote bag is probably the most life-changing item I have in my closet, and I thought it was about time to share some of my top Cuyana reviews for the products I own and love.

Cuyana Reviews: The 10+ Items I Love + Recommend

Yes, I know. Life changing sounds a bit extreme. But, as someone who almost always prefers style over function, it is rare to find something that satisfies both so well. Today, I thought I’d share my Cuyana collection and answer some of my most frequently asked questions about each of the items in one place. Is it worth the price? Which pieces are the best? And which size carryall tote is it that I’m carrying all the time anyway?

If you’re curious about the brand, or if one of those questions ever came to mind, then read on for my Cuyana reviews!

Break the Style Rules for Thanksgiving // Black and Brown Outfits

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s become a tradition around here to share what I’m wearing for Thanksgiving. So why stop this year? When looking back at past Thanksgiving outfits, I couldn’t help but notice a pattern of wearing a color combination that’s heavily debated: black and brown. Do black and brown outfits work? Do they not?

Personally, I’m on team black and brown, which is why I thought it would be fun to share a few different outfits that incorporate this color pairing. Where do you fall on the style spectrum? Are you a black and brown hater, or do you think they can work together?

I’ll share my personal style tips when it comes to this pairing and you can let me know what you decide in the comments below!

How to Hygge This Winter

As I sit here working on this post, the wind is blowing away, the leaves making crisp rattling noises as they hit the side of the house. Earlier, the rain was falling gently, glistening in the fall sun. And me? Well, I’m inside, with my chilly toes hidden under blankets and a cozy pullover keeping my upper body toasty. What can I say, ’tis the season to get hygge!

But wait, what’s hygge? A Danish and Norwegian term describing a mood or feeling of coziness, comfort, wellness, and contentment, despite the long, dark days of fall and winter. It was all the rage last winter, and I predict we’ll see a resurgence again as the temperatures drop. From beauty products to candles to books, there are a variety of products for sale that capitalize on the concept of how to hygge. However, there’s also a variety of things you can do at home that will inspire feelings of hygge, too.

Today I thought I’d share a few of those ideas as the weather changes, the nights get longer, and we begin to transition our homes, wardrobes, and mindset for the holiday and winter months.

10 Fall Fashion Trends from NYFW That I LOVED

Before I left for NYFW, I did a lot of research about what I might see people wearing. After all, who wants to show up unprepared? Not me! Around the same time, I was asked to be on local Seattle TV Station, King 5, to talk about the fall fashion trends that I was excited about.

And, while I was able to cover quite a few of my favorites, I wanted to keep my mind open to what was actually being worn on the streets this season.As usual, NYFW and NYC, in general, didn’t disappoint when it came to the catwalk on the streets. Today, I thought I’d share some of my absolute favorite trends, and how I’ve already been incorporating them into my wardrobe!

A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Happy Halloween!

As October comes to a close, I look back at how fast it all flew by. The weather has gone from sunny and fairly warm for fall to chilly and rainy. Before the weather change hit, my friends and I made our way to a local pumpkin patch. After all, would it really be fall if pumpkins and a cute pumpkin patch outfit weren’t involved?!

Just 45 minutes outside of Seattle is a small farm town called Enumclaw. It’s the same town that Dave spent some of his formative years in, and he has family in the area. That’s how I stumbled upon Thomasson Family Farm several years ago. Since it’s a bit farther out and the only pumpkin patch in town (that I know about anyway) it tends to be a bit less busy then some of the others I’ve been to in years past. While they don’t go all out with some of the farm-fun like apple picking, fresh food, and over the top decorations, it’s still a cute place to pick a pumpkin and snap some photos.
