Charting the style of daily life...with a mouth like a sailor.

FIVE WORDS I'D USE TO DESCRIBE MYSELF ARE

germophobe, girl boss, loud laugher.

I'M INSPIRED BY

the seaside, my ancestors.

MY FAVORITE DRINK

is club soda with a ginormous wedge of lemon. A crisp, dry rosé is a very, very close second.

MY SIGNATURE STYLE

is casual and simple with a nautical twist. Shocking.

MY FAVORITE BOOK

is Rebecca, by Daphne DuMaurier.

MY FAVORITE DESIGNERS/STYLE ICONS

are Alexis Bittar, Cynthia Rowley, Mara Hoffman, Miuccia Prada, Jenna Lyons, Iris Apfel, Linda Rodin, in no particular order.

MY IDEAL DAY

would be brunch with my fellas, then a massage. A little shopping afterwards wouldn't hurt. If I'm on Cape Cod, it's all about a crisp glass of rosé, with fresh lobster salad, after a long swim in the Atlantic. 

MY MUST HAVE BEAUTY PRODUCT

is FoxSea Universal Oil, hands down. #fountainofyouth

I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT

the number 5, elephants, CARBS, steam trains, lemons, cheese, tomatoes, cheese & tomatoes, cheese & tomatoes & lemons, essential oils, The Howard Stern Show, container homes, music + movies, 80's & 90's figure skating. The order of importance changes daily. 

MY MOST BELOVED ACCESSORY

is my orange Hermes Double Tour wrap bracelet. I purchased it for myself when I made a big career change. It was a splurge but it serves as a reminder of my hard work and my decision to chase my dreams. 

I WISH

I could carry a tune. I love to sing but have a horrible voice. I mean, absolutely wretched. Srsly. But not so wretched that it's cute, a la Cameron Diaz in My Best Friend's Wedding. If you're in the biz of granting wishes, I'd also like to have Gwyneth Paltrow's body. Thanks. 

ONE DAY I'LL

travel the world with my love.

A LITTLE BIT MORE...

I was born and raised in Indiana but spent my summers on Cape Cod, which instilled in me a deep love, appreciation and respect for the ocean and its beaches. I always had a craving for the latest and greatest beauty products and style trends. I was devouring glossy magazines as a tween and knew that one day I'd work somewhere within the world of style. For well over a decade, I was part of the management team for a high end, Boston, Massachusetts based salon, spa and boutique company. I moved back to Indiana with my little family a few years ago and while the change of pace and lifestyle has been lovely, I miss the sea every. single. day.

Keep it funky.
