Welcome! I’m Catherine. For me, it's important to stretch my mind, travel far, and always have a stash of dark chocolate.

Styling Opposites

One major difference I've noticed while living in Nashville is people fully embrace the art of dressing up. I don't mean dressing up for date night, but presenting a full look everyday. In our South, rarely do you see someone out and about in non-work-out-work-out clothes. In the midwest, I think after dealing with harsh winters, there is a tendency to resign oneself to super casual basics.

After getting a taste of this aspect of Southern living, I'm embracing this new lifestyle! I feel more put together and ready to tackle whatever life may throw at me when I am fully dressed.

You know the fashion theory that talks about playing with opposites? Lace and leather; sleek and voluminous; soft and hard etc. My style is neither regularly soft nor hard, but it's always fun to play around with different combinations. This is my version of a hard and soft look with a 90's flair.




I bought this dress when I went shopping for a new outfit to wear to a friend's wedding. Ultimately, I chose to wear a navy dress, but this black number would have also worked! It's easily dressed up by adding the right accessories and shoes, but we were running errands this day so I slipped on flats.

Styling around my denim jacket is always fun for me. I love this jacket. I bought it for $14.00 at Old Navy nine or ten years ago! It's perfectly worn in and I'm always looking for excuses to wear it. Jean jackets add an air of effortlessness to any outfit.
