What inspires your personal style the most?

My mom always used to call me a Tom Boy in denial. I tend to gravitate towards pieces that are more utilitarian, but also feminine and classic. I want to wear things that I can rough up, but still look fabulous in.  Also, my body is ALWAYS changing so I like pieces that look awesome no matter what size my boobs are!

What is your favorite current trend?

I LOVE MOM JEANS! We just got in these amazing Seven for All Man Kind mom jeans and I want to buy 20 pairs of them!

Which designer inspires you the most?

Designer I’m not ready to commit to just yet. Blogger I love, Man Repeller! 

What fashion advice do you have for this upcoming season?

Ditch your mom’s rules. Play with color, play with neutrals, length and style.  Do what feels right. 

What is your favorite item you have ever purchased from Adorn?

ALL OF MY JEANS! Specifically right now my Cara’s from Citizens of Humanity.

Shine Bright With Colors This Summer

Don’t be the only dull thing this summer; shine bright with colors! Whether you’re like me and buy too much black and grey. Or you already have a rainbow in your closet. Summer is the time to put away the little black dress. And throw on the floral romper!

From Sanctuary to Fifteen Twenty. This season is all about a splash of color. If you’re wondering where to start? Follow our guide to shining bright with colors.

As Sleek As A Little Black Dress

For a look as sleek as black. Try Sanctuary’s Lilly Dress. It has a playful fit you’ll love. Dress it up with a Minnie and George bag. And you’ll shine bright with sophistication. Don’t forget to check out Gild. A Portland boutique with amazing shoes. I loved their Trask wedges.


Light and Bright But Not Too Loud

You don’t have to pick the brightest colors. To have the colorful look of the season. Because Sanctuary is at it again, with this coral top! Keep your pallet light with Citizen of Humanity’s yellow jeans. Add a turquoise necklace, like ours from Luscious. And you’ll be the brightest thing this summer. Now for a neutral bag to balance this colorful look. Try Mari Lassa’s clutch in white and brown.


All the Color You Could Ask For

If you only pick one outfit. This is the colorful look you need! Fifteen Twenty’s floral romper is everything we’ve ever wanted! Great look for a summer’s day at the beach. Or for a Morning Dew candlelit date. For a little shade to your color. You’ll need a pair of Quay sunglasses. And don’t forget Trask’s wedge sandals. They’ll add just the right glamor to your look. If only the Mari Lassa’s coin purse could fit my phone!


An All Day Look That Shines Bright With Colors

For a look that’s colorful without being too loud. Stay bright with Prairie Underground’s hand dyed silk tee. It’s utter perfection. An ideal fit with one of a kind patterns. You’ll be turning everyone’s’ head. Especially with a Marie Pilato necklace. Or a Gem Point PDX ring. Just look at that quartz! To balance your colors try Alex Crop’s rust jeans. They match perfectly with Quay’s rose gold sunglasses. To keep it comfy, go with Trask’s slip-ons. And you’ll have a look you can wear all day.

How To Pack Light Without Sacrificing Style

The sun is blazing. The streets are hot. And summer is in full swing! So your big vacation must be around the corner. How’s the packing coming?

Every year I pack my bag to the brim. And then pack two more bags to the brim. Because shoes need their own bag, right? Problem is—being loaded down like a pack mule. It just doesn’t look or feel glamorous.

Not this year though! That’s why I learned how to pack light without sacrificing style. Because it doesn’t mean not having an outfit for every occasion.

The key to packing light is a cohesive color palate. Plus a few must have accessories. Then you’ll be able to mix and match to your heart’s content.


1. Pick Clothes In the Same Color Palate

Pick one or two bold colors and let the rest be muted.  Velvet by Graham and Spencer’s Cami is perfect to dress up or down. Wear it while your shopping. Or slip it on for a lunch date. Since it will keep you cool and stylish. Most noteworthy—it’s small packing size! Stay colorful with the Sanctuary Kye Straight Ankle Jean in Washed Cameo.


2. Reuse Key Items to Save Space

So instead of a pair of jeans for every shirt. Find jeans that work with every shirt! Project Social T’s Bodysuit is great for layering. So you can wear it with your Sanctuary Kye Straight Ankle Jeans, or with a Prairie Underground skirt. Layer on a with Prairie Underground linen top, and your suitcase will still has plenty of room!


3. Limit Yourself to Packing One Sundress and One Coverup

Most of all, you’ll need to pack the perfect Sanctuary sundress! And don’t forget a Ruby Yaya tunic. Because sometimes we want a cover up at the beach. You’ll need a nice pair of sandals. I found the perfect pair at Gilds, a Portland boutique. And pack a big bag for your beach days. Minnie and George have a great selection!


4. Picking Accessories That Match All Your Outfits

Finally, you need to pack accessories that work with everything. Or at least half your outfits! A small Liebeskind purse for after you arrive. A pair of comfortable heels to dress up in. And don’t forget jewelry that can go with any look! Betsy & Iya seem to have a look for everyone.


5. To Review

My color palate: blush, beige, black, and dark blue. As a result: two pairs of shoes work with every outfit. While still allowing me to be colorful and playful. I kept all of the jewelry the same tone of gold. Adding a splash of color with a rose quartz. Finally I limited myself to two bags: one big one small. Best of all it all packs into a carryon with room to spare!
