Anyone who observed what I wore in my 20s would certainly have noticed my unapologetic love affair with chains (Freud could’ve had a party with that, I’m sure).

As I’ve matured, I’ve moved from dripping in them to adding a few well-placed doses here and there as a foil to more sophisticated pieces (noticing a theme yet?).


0K2A7490This little ivory day dress has pockets! and the most beautifully draped cowl neckline that provides the perfect stage for a necklace with personality. The chain is one long strand taken from a vintage necklace that I simply tied into a bow.


0K2A7438I tend to shy away from prints, but love neutral pieces with unusual design features (like the cap sleeves and back cutout of this dress) that lend a little something extra to the look.


0K2A7477I like to travel light on the weekends, and a black embossed minaudiere is the perfect size for a license, credit card, phone, and lipstick.  A large military-inspired ring brings a little edge to the ensemble.


0K2A7431The camo and buckles on these booties continue the military vibe, but the calf hair reads more “polished.”
