I've always been a fan of animal print in fashion. There's something so beautiful about a sharply styled outfit that boasts a bold print.

Hi, my name is Aramide and I am a recovering overpacker. When it came time for any trip, I'd get a serious case of clothes and accessories FOMO and I would pack things I would maybe need instead of only what I would wear.

Lately I've noticed that everyone is really into the idea of a capsule wardrobe: a pared down wardrobe consisting of just a few items that go together in multiple ways.
To me, this is an old idea with a new-sounding name (and maybe a few more rules). Making sure each new item brought into the wardrobe is versatile enough to dress up or down, ...Read more

I hear from a lot of people who struggle to prioritize the little things like alone time, eating well, exercise, and, of course, getting dressed.

In the last year, I have upped my travel game. These trips have helped me to see how style can deepen and shift through a change in environment, not only in a logistical sense but also in the gathering of inspiration and heightened possibility of trying new things.
