Baby Braly Gender Reveal

We are so beyond over the moon to announce that baby Braly, coming November 2017, is a GIRL! HB definitely called it. For some reason I, along with most of our families, thought we were having a boy! Only a rare few believed it would be a girl! We are SO EXCITED. We’ve picked out a name that we’re 99% sure we’re going to stick…

Meet Leeloo

We are so overjoyed and ecstatic to bring a sister for Gidget into the Braly fold.  We searched shelters for nearly a year to find Gidget the perfect playmate and companion, with no success.  But when we stumbled upon this little girl, we immediately scooped her up and she hasn’t left our laps since.  She’s sweet, funny, rambunctious, very playful, and has about a 75%…

My Umstead Spa Experience

About a week ago I had the most amazing spa experience of my life.  I haven’t been one much for facials or spa treatments in the past, mostly because I couldn’t bear to spend that much money on myself.  But when I was treated to a very generous gift card to the Umstead Spa from my CRNA’s at my place of work for Christmas, I…

Le Sport Chic

my how things have changed I’m having a blast with these Adidas Tubular sneaks – they’re the right mix of neutral beige and sporty effortlessness. I’m still experimenting with them on what goes and what doesn’t – but I quite liked this look on a rare, brisk Tuesday afternoon. Since I’ve become pregnant it’s amazing what temperature swings will do to you! My husband doesn’t…

On Body Confidence

As a child I suffered from a handful of skin conditions. As a physician, I now know to call them “atopic”. Eczema, rashes, dry skin, hives – you name it, I had it. Interestingly enough, as the name atopic suggests, it comes from within me. It has nothing to do with touching the wrong plant, using the wrong cream, or being allergic to medication. Quite simply,…

Fifty Shades of Grey

If you’ve followed me for a while now you may be familiar with my predilection for the color grey. Light grey, dark grey, doesn’t matter to me. I love it all. I need to find myself some grey ankle booties – I feel it would have completed the look a bit better. But I do enjoy my Adidas tubular shadow shoes – the beige is…

High Key

  I shot this look a couple of weeks ago – took my new gucci belt out for another spin (literally CANNOT stop wearing it) and thought it paired nicely with my single flap bag – love that bag so much. A bunch of favorites going on in one outfit: slouchy sweater, gucci belt, black jeans, chloé boots, chanel bag. What more could you ask…

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

I feel like greys are my uniform. I may wear scrubs (aka uniformed pajamas) every day at work, but when I’m not, I’m usually in shades of grey. I have recently been pairing grey with army greens, maybe because of my gorgeous green Chanel classic flap, and I’m loving it. shop the post HB and I visited Asheville, NC this weekend and had such a good…
