STYLE ICONS

the people who have shaped my style


MM

The tapestry that hangs in our living room is one of my most cherished possessions. I’ve only ever seen a handful of her photos and pieced together a few stories over the years, but still somehow she has shaped who I am today. She was a creative, loved painting, nature, and animals, I’ve always tried to link myself to her throughout the years, draw on our similarities, and use them to write the story of “where I cam from”. She died at the young age of 36 but she still lives on in me and in my home every day. In my head I refer to her as MM (her maiden initials on a pinky ring of hers that I wear) because it feels strange to use the title of Grandmother for a woman who will forever be in her 30’s. I’ve heard stories of how she had a mini breakdown finishing this tapestry. If only she knew how much it would be cherished one day, 70 years later, and an ocean away.

SPRING ON MY MIND

Spring2020.png

I can’t help it! Spring has been on my mind. But did you know that it is less than 25 days away? Yup! March 19th! This has actually been a pretty mild Winter on the East Coast so I can’t complain, but I miss the sun. Vitamin D deficiency is a real thing and even just an hour of sun a day really helps my mood.

SO here is a little dose of what’s to come. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite new arrivals. Creating this collage and roundup gave me a major itch to search flights to warm weather destinations. Spring Break is around the corner and I’m thinking we may need to head somewhere sunny even if just for a couple of days. Stay tuned!
