About Me

My name is Clare and I'm 25. I'm originally from Greenwich, CT and was living in Manhattan but now I'm living and working in beautiful Santa Monica, CA. I love scalloped hemlines, fresh white bedding, strawberries, lacquered anything, big cashmere sweaters, cool nights at the lake and breakfast any time of day. 
I'm a total Etsy addict, bargain shopper and I love to read. I've never touched my toes and I can eat pickles by the jar full. I was a collegiate squash player and am a huge supporter of the game. I believe in mixing silver and gold jewelry and navy and black clothing. I'm an absolute products junkie (I have wayyyyy too many Sephora VIB points) and I have an absurd amount of stripes in my closet. If my shopbop hearts or pinterest pins were to be deleted I would be absolutely devastated (admit it, you would be too). I'm not a great cook but I can prepare a mean cheese plate. One of my absolute favorite things is giving gifts (ordering off a menu for a group is a close second). I love ice cream sundaes, apple cider donuts, coffee, rosé and truffle anything yet I'm constantly trying to stick to a paleo diet. I like bike rides and old cars and old houses. I believe it's always an occasion for champagne.

I started this blog as my creative outlet. After years of creative writing, art classes and fashion dreams, I found myself in the world of finance. After leaving my job in finance, I moved over to  johnnie-O, where I am using my passion for fashion and e-commerce every day at work. What a concept! Metropolitan Musings is a serious hodge podge of fashion, home design, life events, fitness, and of course, my random musings and rambling. I hope you enjoy!
