You are clearly a mama wildly in love.
This little monkey means everything to me and Nick. I do love style, the work I get to do for City Flea, and the blog…but Ruthie is definitely our priority.
So how do you still look like you fell out of a Madewell look book?
Actually, I’ve learned to keep it really simple. Recently, we purged our house and closets—the best feeling. Now I have only a few well-made options, like five shirts that fit right and I feel good in. I’m never digging through my closet with a toddler at my feet.
I mean this in the kindest way, but you dress a little boyish.
I was definitely a tomboy growing up! I still wear more masculine colors with a feminine fit. Same goes for Ruthie, really. Most of her clothes are from the boy’s section because I like the gender-neutral colors, the solids, the stripes. American Apparel’s a favorite.
And those eyes!
I know it. I’m clearly biased, but I see something special in those big blues.
City Flea. Give us the latest.
Cincinnati is so full of creative entrepreneurs and locally minded shoppers. We love that we get to be part of bringing a new experience to the urban core.
