Hi, there! I’m Emily, the lady behind the blog. I’m a work-from-home mom of two little ones with a third on the way enjoying life in the North Shore of Chicago. When I’m not chasing after my two toddlers or my hubby, you can catch me hunting down the latest fashion websites, reviewing a delivery glam box, obsessing over new trends and current deals, boutique shopping my way through the city, trying a new recipe or planning our next trip.
Here’s a little bit more about me and my journey to blogging:
Day Job: I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN). Translation = I was a science nerd in college AND (most importantly) I LOVE FOOD. For more than eight years I worked in nutrition PR to help food companies connect with consumers and health professionals, but for the last two years I’ve focused on my two most important clients full-time, Teddy and Sloane. Being a RDN isn’t a job for me as much as part of my lifestyle, so you’ll find some of my recipe testing successes, new product reviews and food collaborations here on the blog.
How I Describe My Style: Casual-Chic, Minimal, European-Flare (this may be aspirational!).
Current Fashion Trend Obsession: High-waisted culotte fringe jeans. Pom pom details. Block heel shoes. Metallics. All the metallics, please!
Recent Thrifting Treasure: Pierre Balmain silk scarf. Picked it up at a vintage shop in Florence while on vacation with my hubby. I have a growing collection of neck scarfs (inherited and purchased) which have become my go-to accessory to quickly give some polish to a simple t-shirt with jeans, hide a bad hair day or accessorize a handbag. You can never have enough!
On-Repeat: My navy bandana from the Dollar Store. It’s been my favorite spring and summer accessory. I love how the simple bandana has been elevated to a glam statement piece.
Style Inspiration: My mom. 🙂 She’s got the eye and she knows how to pull it all together, popped collar and all. My celeb style crushes include Olivia Palermo, Jessica Alba, Sarah Jessica Parker and Amal Clooney.
