about me

hi, i’m kate.

i’m a pittsburgh girl living in charlotte, nc with my husband and two kids.

this blog has been in the works since 2015, but was started in 2017 as a result of my burgeoning conscience when it comes to clothing and beauty products.

it started as a space for all of us to converse and learn more about ways to shop ethically, but it has since changed back into its original ideation.

“rainy days & runways” is now largely how to dress for the weather, but it comes from clothes in my own closet, and looks at how to utilize what you already have instead of constantly buying more.

i’m still highlighting ethical pieces and brands, but also trying to embrace slow fashion instead of constant consumption.

i love my family, soccer, running, writing, reading, coffee, shoes, & pittsburgh sports – just to name a few.

thanks for stopping by!
