my favorite shopping tip.

So, here’s a game I like to play with myself. Everyone loves to indulge in a few of the latest trends, right? But how will you know if purchasing a trendy item is nothing more than an impulsive addition to your wardrobe that you’ll wear a few times and then donate months later? Buy the cheap

pregnancy style.

A few months ago, the amazing stylist duo behind Twenty Thirty Forty (and newly launched Kit This!) traveled from Chicago to my home to style me for an insanely inspiring afternoon. Who doesn’t love playing dress up with the curators behind such an amazing boutique? Luckily, the amazing Nathan Michael was there to document the

me + gap + rue = love.

A few months ago, I had the immense pleasure of “modeling” (I use that term very, very loosely, friends) for Gap’s styld.by campaign in conjunction with Rue Magazine (you did catch the latest issue, yes?).

MYkind: 2nd trimester style.

I took a long, long break from showcasing my daily outfits when I found out I was pregnant. And there were a lot of reasons why, but mainly? I never got dressed. I can’t think of one ensemble that I took the time to put together, partly because nothing looks great when you feel miserable,

MYkind: shoemint.

Now that I’m out of my first trimester (which consisted of the most epic naps ever), I’m looking forward to being awake long enough to get in a proper shower and outfit. Sure, dressing in this stage is pretty tricky (I’m just starting to look pregnant, rather than look like I downed three cheeseburgers for
