I may not always be sure which way I'm going, but I know I'm with the right people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **sustainable⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm wearing a @gai_lisva_brand essential jumpsuit (I really have worn it an embarrassing number of times) an an old @jcrew tee. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jo is wearing a @beachlunchlounge dress that usually lives in my closet! Swapping with friends = super sustainable.


COME SHOP WITH ME! I found all the coolest sustainable swim brands and put them in one place for you. And then bc I’m extra I reached out to all of them and got you discounts on a bunch. There are trendy brands, sporty brands, retro brands - and all are sustainable & ethically made. Woo hoo! Go find a new Labor Day outfit! . . . **sustainable **vintage bathing suit (TAGS ON!) from @goodstyleshop ** #chicjeans shorts from @vinnysmadtown at East Village, Manhattan

O hey dere ya! (That's how we say hi in Wisconsin!) . Abbie of @fruitableblog sent me this super cute Adidas tee a couple weeks ago. (Thanks Abbie! Your taste is **kisses fingers like an Italian chef**.) I had been itching to find the perfect tee to cut up after seeing another girl at @johnbentonmodelfitness with the perfect cutoff crop tee. When I saw this, I knew it was the one!! . Except that I am a tee cutting noob. (Swipe to see why. That’s me safety pinning the shirt a little smaller for the photo.) . Word to the wise, if you are going to cut up a tee, pick one that is already pretty snug on you! I'll be taking this one in at the sides in the next week or two. Would anyone be interested in watching me do alterations on IG Live? Is that a thing? . . **sustainable **vintage Adidas tee from @fruitableblog **denim courtesy of @lifeafterdeathdenim at East Village, Manhattan

#FBF to the day that Tim took photos of me in not one, not two, but three different locations and even provided art direction. HOW CAN I MAKE THAT HAPPEN EVERY DAY?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . photo by my talented husband who doesn't really use insta but gets that it's a thing⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **sustainable⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ** @madewell dress via @thredup #secondhandfirst ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @nike sneakers bc I am flawed and human and I can't stop loving them Cortez. (I have since purchased a sustainable option.) at Vis, Splitsko-Dalmatinska, Croatia


TFW an emerging designer DM’s out of the blue and invites you to try on clothes & talk sustainable fashion. #YESPLEASE @amucherian . . . Amu Cherian and I are both wearing dresses that she has printed by hand with traditional wood blocks. She designs the patterns herself and has the blocks made in India. ❤️🧡❤️ at Wisconsin


🌺🧠👚👙👛🐙🌷🌸🍧🎀💕 . . . **sustainable **sweater from my MIL’s closet ** shorts also from my MIL’s closet. I desperately want to find a photo of her wearing them! **scarf from @goodstyleshop at Manhattan, New York


This skirt marks one of the high moments of my relationship with my mom. When I was in high school, she was frustrated with how short Abercrombie skirts were, but we agreed that they were really cute. We bought two and she showed me how to copy the patterns. We made two new skirts a couple inches longer and returned the A&F skirts. Both skirts were immediate favorites, and I’ve brought them with me through three more states & half a dozen homes. ❤️ . . The sweatshirt is @stjohnsbay from @vinnysmadtown.


Tim told me this was the Strudel Museum. Turns out it's the Stadel Museum. Not disappointed disappointed, just a tiny bit disappointed.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not a very sustainable outfit, but it's the same @anntaylor shell I keep wearing! (Do you feel trolled yet?) The skirt is from @saksoff5th from when I used to pass it on my drives home from tailoring at Kohl's. I've worn it dozens of times.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The sandals are the saving grace. They're from @everlane, so they're ethical and responsible and all the good things. at Städel Museum


The Complete Encyclopedia of Every Bandanna Knot Imaginable, now on my blog. I named one after a close friend, but I didn't tell her. Maybe check it out to see if it's you. . . .photo by @the.corbink . **sustainable **bandanna from @goodstyleshop **sweatshirt SO SOFT AND COZY from my MIL's closet at New York, New York


The secret to networking with art people is mastering the air kiss. I like to do it the way one of my cousins does it, with a dramatic head tilt and by saying "MUAH! MUAH!" She's from Long Island, that's how they roll. ;) #muah ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **sustainable**⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **I'm wearing a sundress from @goodstyleshop (their Insta is shoppable, go hit them up!). My friend & art advisor @tracykinnally is in a conventional dress, HOWEVER, she is embarking on her first no-shop month and I'm really proud of her. EDIT: Tracy requested that I specify that her dress has pockets. #ItAllStartsWithASingleStep


My MIL and I did a purge of her closet recently and I LOVED this sweatshirt because I am a sucker for plaid and there's nothing that endears you to New Yorkers like a little midwestern nice. (I'm from NJ but nobody seems to believe that anymore. **emoji of blonde lady shrugging**)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyway, I wore this outfit to a family BBQ, and went to say hi to my sister in law. And I was like, we did a big purge this weekend, how amazing is this sweatshirt! And she was like, oh ya, I liked that sweatshirt, too. That's why I gave it to our MIL for Christmas ‘93. 😶⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **sustainable⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **”Vintage” Wisconsin sweatshirt swapped from my MIL⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ **jorts probably also swapped from my MIL or another place I’ve forgotten⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @nike Cortez⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shout out to my bike! It’s a @trek Crossrip and, after my friends, it’s the thing I miss the most in NY!


Eight years together! Infinite left to go. ❤️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you click back to my profile, I planted an easter egg yesterday... yes, I set up yesterday's photo so that I could smirk flirtatiously at my husband for all of internet eternity. #romance.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This photo is at our friends' wedding in 2016. I'm wearing a conventional @michaelkors dress that I bought in a panic that morning. Since then, because it is infinitely packable and machine washable, I've worn it all over the place. When the cold shoulder fell out of fashion last year, I cut the sleeves off, and next I'm planning to reshape the neckline into a simple V. I think it has a lot of life in it yet.


👀 . Actually this photo is part 1 of 2. Check my grid tomorrow to see who I’m creepin’ on. 😂 . .📸 @the.corbink . . Jumpsuit gifted by @jeanfranklinshop. Thank you!! ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ at Strand Book Store


Does anyone else live for coffee and new friends with great ideas? . I recently met @fionasmart1982 who is developing a peer-to-peer wardrobe sharing app. (There are a couple out there & I truly believe that there’s a niche for everyone! 😍) Think a hybrid of @rentthewunway and @poshmark. 👖👘👗 . If you want more info, dm me your email address & I’ll get you on her waitlist! 📸 @the.corbink . . I’m wearing a sustainable jumpsuit gifted by @gai_lisva_brand (more photos to come, I’ve been wearing it nonstop!) #gailisva #gailisvamoment at The Bean


Sunday brunch day at our new fav, @workingdraftbeer. 🍻❤️🚲 . . . I’m wearing a thrifted tee from @vinnysmadtown (as usual). #stvinnysftw at Working Draft Beer Company


What a weekend!! . Tim and I went to a wedding dinner in Chicago last night, we have a different wedding in Wisconsin tonight, a milestone birthday party tomorrow, and back to New York tomorrow night. 🎉💍💋🥂🍰🎊 . I love celebrating my friends’ happiness and feel so lucky to be able to travel & be here for these occasions. I had to take a minute with Jost today just to soak it all in! . . . **sustainable **Turtleneck gifted by @gai_lisva_brand. It’s lightweight & actually totally perfect for the cool front in the Midwest right now - 70’s during the day & 50’s at night. #gailisva #gailisvamoment at Madison, Wisconsin
