  • 12th (wo)Man

    seattle seahawks fashion 12th woman

    In case you didn’t already know…the Superbowl is on Sunday. And I’m incredibly proud to say my hometown team, the Seattle Seahawks, will be playing on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

    If you’ve followed me via Instagram…you already know that I’ve been pretty hyped up on Hawks pride lately. So I thought…why not devote the last and most important #BlueFriday of the season on my blog to the 12th man. You can also watch this video which is the live reaction when the Seahawks won their last playoff game (it’s me, and my friends, screaming like crazies, FYI).

    Quick outfit breakdown: Jean Jacket, Vintage | Red Plaid Scarf, H&M | 12th Man Tee, Seahawks Pro Shop | Printed skinnies, GAP | Booties, H&M.

    GO HAWKS!

  • Have Less and Be More

    A Sort of New Year Resolution Post

    Screen Shot 2013-12-27 at 11.16.55 PM

    Last week I was driving to my dad’s house; it’s a long drive and it gives me the opportunity to think. Often I spend that time listening to NPR, or some music station on the radio, allowing my mind to just sit and absorb. But this drive was different — my mind demanded silence. And in this silence I was unexpectedly brought to tears. I was overwhelmed with the feeling that I was an incredibly lucky person  — and simultaneously felt motivated to spend 2014 being more appreciative in my everyday life.

    I’m freshly 26 years old – and thus far my 20s have been an incredible learning experience. They’ve been some of the most reflective years of my life. And after tallying up all the relationships, the experiences, the choices and even the devastations — all I can conclude is that I am an incredibly and unfairly lucky woman.

    If you have just one person in your life who loves you, unconditionally, whether that be a friend, family member or lover – you are one of the lucky ones.

    I am at a loss for words when I think about the people in my life. My family — and my friends who might as well be blood — love and support me every single day. They are there for me. They lift me up, even when that means first dragging me out of a pit of my own despair. And though my life is filled with more love than anyone deserves, I dote on the insignifigants. I spend an incredulous amount of my energy on things that, in the big picture, mean absolutely nothing.

    And this isn’t to say that insignificance doesn’t play a role in life — we need it in order to define what’s truly important. But as the new year approaches, I want to refocus my energies on appreciating the people in my life who make it so wonderfully fun to live. I’m ready to clear out some of the junk in my mind and make room for more memories, more love and more appreciation.

    I’m ready to grow up. I’m ready to value the relationships I’ve built (and those I will build) over material objects and petty desires. I’m ready to let go of self absorption. I’m ready to admit my flaws and understand that some of them may be permanent. I’m ready to work towards becoming a better me. I’m ready to appreciate the luck I’ve had in my life. And I’m so ready to stop making excuses.

    This new year, I only have one resolution that covers everything I want to achieve: Have Less and Be More.

    I will rid my life of clutter, and replace the space with a piece of significance. I will stop making excuses and accept that I am a work in progress; and I will make the effort to improve myself. I will put people first and above everything else. I am happy because of the people in my life. My happiness is a product of my environment — and I’m a damn lucky woman to live in the environment I do.

    2014 will be a year of appreciation, listening, building and improving. I’m so excited for what comes next.

  • The Black Cat Clutch

    seattle fashion blogger fall stylist 1

     We are deep into autumn now – pumpkin patching, squash recipes and faux fur shopping are in full swing. If you are from Seattle – you understand the glory of October: the golden sun, the clear but cold skies, the rainbow of red, orange and yellow everywhere you look. What you may not know is the hidden glory of October – my birthday. Why so glorious you ask? Because my friends are the best gift givers in the world – and this year, a good friend surprised me with the cutest of cute black cat clutches.

    If you follow me on Instagram – you already know – I have a black cat (and yes she is the cutest and yes I am a crazy cat lady). And now…I have a matching clutch. That’s right ladies – matching your shoes and purse is so throw back Thursday. This season it’s all about matching your accessories to your pets! With shoes that look like paws, furry accessories to match your furry friend’s coat and animal-shaped clutches, being one with your mini-BFF has never been easier.

    On a more serious note – I’ll be doing a lot of traveling over the next month and a half. First for work, I’ll be heading to Baltimore for my company’s annual meeting. Then, for fun, I’ll be heading to Thailand for a whopping three weeks. My best friend and I have been planning this trip for about a year – so we are so incredibly pumped to jet off to foreign territory. I just have to remember my own packing advice from a couple years back…*leave all the shoes!*

    And finally…Have you gotten into the Halloween spirit yet? The crazy day is just around the corner! BONUS OUTFIT: Me in a dinosaur costume.
