Closet Remix: Summer to Fall

As is customary on most Monday holidays, I spent the morning in my pajamas and played in my closet. It was the perfect day to assess what pieces will carry me into fall as the temperature drops without needing to completely re-up on stylish components.

Looking Good & Feeling Good with Plammie Activewear

If there’s one thing I miss from when I wasn’t on the campaign trail, it would definitely be finding fun, new ways to stay fit.

BTS: The Twenty-Something Edition

I’m fairly certain that my habit of adding a few new things to my wardrobe every season got started with the tradition of back-to-school shopping at the start of every school year.
