Weekend Update

1. I haven’t shopped in the Nordstrom “Brass Plum” (is it even still called that?) junior’s section in a decade, ever since I realized that loose cashmere hoodies were infinitely more comfortable than tight fitting halter tops. I recently…

Wardrobe Staple: Luggage

We’ve been packing up and making some space in our little home for the upcoming baby, and as a result I’ve had to downsize/move to my parent’s garage some of my luggage collection. I have a scary obsession with…
