On the List


You really can’t go wrong with a red chevron bag. This one is versatile enough to be a handbag or cross body.

Must Try

There’s a coffee shop in Copenhagen that we stop in everytime we visit the city. I always indulge in their hot chocolate (no surprise there!).


Velvet proved to be incredibly popular this season, and I love this very flirty velvet skirt. It is perfect for a dinner party or birthday.


These winter boots were a must for me to pack for our upcoming trip to Iceland. They’re perfect for snowy weather.

The Best of 2016

It’s almost 2017! It feels like this year has flown by. From travels abroad to our wedding to new adventures in our careers, 2016 was certainly a year full of incredible memories made.
