This ultra-soft pink cashmere cardigan from Skin and this organic cotton dress (available in nine different colors) make for the perfect loungewear combination from autumn to summer and everything in between. Supporting sustainable, woman-owned brands is so important to me in a world of fast fashion because, unlike fast fashion conglomerates, I know when I purchase something from Skin, the people on the other side of the transaction notice and celebrate it. I’m not just another drop in the bucket. Life needs more celebrating, don’t you think?
Pink Cashmere & Organic Cotton Loungewear
Magic Hour Organic Wanderlust Tea
Drinking tea is something I do every day to relax, unwind, and hydrate. It’s a great way to slow down, sit with my thoughts, and reflect on my day. I’m always looking for new and delicious organic teas to try, and when I found Magic Hour, I was immediately intrigued. They’re a woman-owned company that uses organic ingredients to carefully craft flavor blends that correspond to various wellness concerns like sleep, mood balance, and focus. They also offer a monthly subscription box that allows tea lovers to travel the world via tea blends. First stop, Tulum, Mexico!
Frauenschuh Handmade Austrian Clothing from Saint Bernard
On our visit to breathtaking Austria last year, I first encountered the luxurious, sustainability-minded, family-owned brand Frauenschuh. With impeccable cuts, incomparable Alpine-inspired style, and incredibly high-quality materials, it was love at first sight. When I discovered that one of my favorite high-end retailers, Saint Bernard, sold not only Frauenschuh but other great brands like Marysia, Bogner, and ON, I was thrilled that I could prepare for any journey, from the beach to the jungle and beyond from a single store.
I love monochromatic looks. They’re such a fun way to make a bold, bright statement, and dressing in the same color family makes it even easier. My secret to the perfect monochromatic look is to pick one or two colors (maximum) colors and dress around this theme. While the colors don’t have to be exact, the closer they are to each other, the better it will look. Alternatively, picking a color family like blues and blacks, for instance, and selecting different shades is another way to pull this off. I love wearing blue all year long, but there’s nothing quite like winter blues.

3 Super Simple Hairstyles for Spring
I almost exclusively wear my hair down, but when I don’t, I opt for simpler styles. I have very long hair, and it can be heavy, so I keep that in mind when styling it. Did you know that wearing hair up too high and too heavy for too long can begin to break the hairs around the face? It’s a common reason why women notice their hair thins! If you love simple hairstyles, or if you’ve noticed that the hairs around your face need a break (not literally), give these three super simple hairstyles a try!
Organic Cotton Waffle Knit Robe & Organic Sleep Dress
This week’s style theme is super comfortable organic pajamas, and this robe is my favorite. It marries the best aspects of a crisp, cozy spa robe with that ultra-soft robe you’ve had for ages. This ultra-crisp, organic cotton waffle knit robe has affixed robe ties, so they’re never uneven or lost, kimono-style sleeves that don’t need to be rolled to be the perfect length, and deep pockets. The organic cotton sleep dress is white yet not sheer, relaxed for a comfortable fit, and has side slits for better flow and movement, setting it apart from other long tee-style sleep shirts.
Washable Silk Pajama Set
I love when luxurious fabrics like cashmere, silk, or leather clothing can be easily washed. That’s not always possible, of course, due to the delicate nature of such materials. Lunya’s washable silk pajama sets are not only washable, but they’re incredibly soft, well-made, very comfortable, and flattering. I love wearing these when lounging around the…
Meet Noodle, The Newest Member of The Fairfax Family
Last year, my husband and I adopted an older cat from a pet shelter, and she has made our lives even happier! We’d originally planned to find a kitten to raise together, but once we got to the pet shelter and spent several hours looking at and playing with cute kittens, we didn’t connect with any of them. Of course, kittens are energetic and curious, but we didn’t feel like any of them were particularly interested in us, and something about taking an uninterested kitten home didn’t feel right (even though they were SO precious and sweet!). So, we walked around the shelter and looked at older cats, not thinking anything would come from it.
Organic Cotton Aaliyah Midi Dress
I love dresses more than any other garment. If I could, I’d wear them all year long. I particularly love when they’re soft, sustainably made, and have pockets. Enter the Aaliyah Midi Dress. It’s so lovely, lightweight, and well-made from sustainable organic cotton that it feels like a dream. This dress is flowy, laid-back, and so versatile. It could be worn as a cover-up at the beach or out for dinner, and everything in between, which is how I know I’ll take this with me on my next journey.
