Romantic Details with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg

The first trend from my Fall 2017 collaboration with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg was Comfy Cozy. Those looks were the perfect blend of being fashion forward while still having the comfort of wearing your favorite pair of sweatpants. The next trend we are diving into is romantic details.  The first look is a soft romantic feel created by adding sleeve details, simple jewelry, and keeping the color palette consistent. Typically I am not a pink girl, but this look called my name.The vest by Crosby is an absolute must! A firm belief of mine is if you layer a vest on […]

Comfy Cozy with Monkee’s of Fredericksburg

  Most people in the world think of January as the start to the New Year, and they would be right in all aspects except for fashion. September, is the month when Fashion Week kicks off and all the big fashion magazines put out their largest issue proclaiming what every woman needs. For me, that equates to two New Year’s one for the calendar and one for fashion. This year however, I did have to move my Fashion New Year because the weather was still scorching hot in September. I can’t think about bringing out my favorite leather coat in […]

Mobile Passport App, A Traveler’s BFF

            One of my top hobbies is to travel, ask me to go pretty much anywhere and I will find a way to budget it in and pack my suitcase. However, there is one aspect of traveling which I loathe! Most people would assume it would be the process of packing, but not for me. It is sitting in the endless Customs line international travelers must go through upon returning to the United States. After a long flight the last thing I want to do is stand in a line like a herd of cattle. On my last flight to […]

Sustainability & The Fashion Industry

   My love for fashion dates back all the way to when I was a little girl. My mum used to get giant boxes of fabrics delivered to the house for her puppetry and I would dive in each box like it was a swimming pool picking out my favorite swatch. Speed forward and I can say my interests in life have almost stayed the same fashion, travel, animals, and our environment. Having said that I was quite unaware of the impact the fashion industry was having on the environment. Marie Claire’s August 2017 issue really opened my eyes to […]

Mind, Body, & Soul Workout

When I initially tell people, I workout typically 3-4 times a week, they assume I am extremely into fitness and the way I look. This  would have been true nine years ago, when I cared about my weight and measurements for my modeling career. If a size 14 was in style, I would gain weight. Then when the trend changed to a size 10. I would lose the weight. Clearly that was not the healthiest way to live, but the pros and cons of modeling is for another discussion. Now I think of the gym completely different, it is my […]
