Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing my best to live in the NOW and appreciate the little things, BUT that doesn’t mean I’m not still dreaming about life after quarantine.
In fact, I’ve recently caught myself day dreaming about the food I’ll eat, friends I’ll hug, and places I’ll travel post quarantine and THAT’S OKAY! I mean, we all need something to look forward to, right? Personally, I think as long as we allow dreaming about life after quarantine to motivate us rather than discourage us, it’s absolutely healthy and OKAY!
And like the true fashionista I am, I can’t help but dream about what I’m going to wear after quarantine, too! Creating outfits that express my personality and mood is an artistic and inspirational outlet for me, so it seems like a fair addition to my list of post quarantine dreams!
But the question is…what am I wearing after quarantine?

In my most recent email newsletter I shared how I’m spending my quarantine time. Yes I’ve rearranged my office, caught up on my favorite reality TV shows, and dressed up for NO REASON, but this extra time at home REALLY has me doing A LOT of thinking. Particularly I’ve been thinking about what motivates us as women. Sure, I’ve thought about this before, but now more than EVER I truly recognize the importance of connection. GIRL I don’t know about YOU, but I know I am much more inspired and empowered to be the best me (AND go after my dreams) when I’m surrounded by other empowered, inspired, and motivated women!

If you’ve been a part of this community for sometime, you know even when we’re not in COVID-19 quarantine I work for myself from home on the daily. And most of the time, I LOVE it! Though I’m an extrovert, I find I am more productive and less distracted working on my own. I know if the work is not finished or to my standard, it is the fault of only ONE person….
But as much as I enjoy working on my own, I typically pack my weeks with meetings, lunches, and brainstorm sessions OUTSIDE of my home office with people who empower me and creatively inspire my work! I truly look forward to these in-person interactions, treating them as an opportunity to connect, share, and support businesses, friends, and my community!
Though interfacing with friends and brands is HUGE for me, it’s not the ONLY reason I look forward to leaving the house…

I mean…all the cool kids are doing it, right? (YEAH because THAT‘s why I do anything…HAHAHA!!!)
Truth is, I LOVE sharing my experiences and tips HERE and on social media in hopes of inspiring YOU to take the first steps in pursuit of your goals. But these platforms only go so far…I believe we need REAL conversation and connection and a podcast seems like the BEST way to provide that for you!

Ahhh, the “work from home” (WFH) life . It’s every woman’s dream, right?
I know it sounds like a dream come true but as someone who has worked from home for herself for over a year, I’ll let you in on a secret. It CAN be a dream…but it CAN also be lonely, and distracting.
When I chat about my work, I often hear “you seem extremely self motivating” and am frequently asked “how do you stay motivated while working from home?” And let me tell you- I have my tough times too! BUT over the past year, I’ve developed a few tricks to staying engaged, inspired, and SANE while working from home! And because you’re likely working from home right now too, I figure what better time to share my tips with YOU?

And just like that, New York Fashion Week has come and gone (AGAIN!)
February is fashion month (I know, that happened fast right?) and I’m still on a high from last season! September’s NYFW was the VERY best yet, not only providing me the opportunity to attend a dozen INCREDIBLE shows, but it was a space to network with inspiring and empowering women in the industry, too!
And don’t worry, this season has lived up to the expectation AND MORE!
One of my FAVORITE things about NYFW…

If you’ve followed along here for a few years (THANK YOU) you may remember a time when I wore EXCLUSIVELY black.
DAMN. Was that a sad time…and not just because I only wore ONE color but for my reasoning behind it. Though at the time I would have claimed to dress in all black because it was “trendy“, I REALLY only wore black because I was hiding my emotions and destructive thoughts behind that color and under those clothes. Though I had ALWAYS sought to stand out, I wanted to blend in. Because…
