    Going Green

    I’ve always had an affinity for the color green. I’m not sure if it’s due to the contrast with my fair complexion, because it makes my eyes pop, or because the sorting hat put me in Slytherin, but green is always a hue which I have felt suits me. Whether a piece is emerald, sage, […]

    Shaved Lemon Truffle Brussels Sprouts

    A few years ago while out at a restaurant, I discovered shaved Brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts are among my favorite veggies but, let’s face it, roasted sprouts can get a little old. Plus, they take forever to cook! Thus, I was very intrigued by this preparation method and upon trying them, knew I had to recreate […]

    Size-Inclusive Denim

    Does anyone else consider jean shopping to be a wholly unpleasant experience? I thought so. I have been my current height (5’11”) since middle school and one thing that was always difficult for me was finding pants that were long enough. The few denim brands that did offer longer lengths only did so in their […]

    Black and White Striped Dress

    If you ask Trader Joe’s and their massive pumpkin display, summer is officially over. If you ask the weather gods, well, that’s a different story.

    Yellow Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho

    It’s that time of year again – that odd transition between summer and fall when it’s still 90+ degrees out, yet everything is pumpkin-spice flavored. Deciding what to make for dinner can be a challenge on any given night, but this between season is particularly difficult for me. I’m tired of all my summer favorites, but […]

    The Edit: Seeing Spots

    It’s a jungle out there! Leopard print is officially back in and is the trend of the season! I can’t seem to open my Instagram feed or walk into a store without seeing at least a few animal-print pieces. The Lisa Rinna vibes are real, people!
