Floral Fall Dress

IMG_1310IMG_1282IMG_1316IMG_1300IMG_1311

Hey everyone, happy hump day!  I am absolutely loving floral dresses for the fall, including this one I last wore here.  It looks great with a pair of white sneakers, like I wore in Newbury, nude heels, or some heeled booties like I wore here!  I love how this blush leather jacket pulls out the lighter hues to completely lighten up the whole look.

Simple Fourth of July Outfit

IMG_9552IMG_9535IMG_9551

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Today I’m sharing a simple and easy outfit for the upcoming weekend.  If red isn’t your color, or you favor yourself a less festive dresser, this outfit is perfect.  I am beyond obsessed with the cute details on this top, from the buttons to the pleats and the hem!  The color goes great with any number of items (you may remember I paired it with these lemon shorts here), but I love the way it pops against all white.

Muted Red, White, and Blue

IMG_9754IMG_9759IMG_9747

Hello everyone, welcome back!  Today I’m sharing an alternate way to wear red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July weekend, or really at any point during the summer.  I love this combination of burgundy and dusty blue to allude to America’s colors, but it’s less expected than bright red and cobalt may be.  It’s a great way to incorporate the festivities into your work attire the week before!

Lemon Print Shorts

IMG_9578.jpg

Happy Hump Day my loves!  Last week you may have seen me post on Instagram that I did some major damage at LOFT, including these adorable lemon print shorts.  Lemon prints have been absolutely everywhere this spring, and LOFT is definitely in the game with this halter dressone shoulder top, scarfsleeveless top and even no show socks!

My two favorite blogger outfits featuring the lemon print trend are Hallie (featuring the aforementioned LOFT scarf) and Blair styling an Anthro dress!  I love the way they both mixed stripes with lemon prints and incorporated their own personal styles into the trend!

Printed shorts are a must have for me during the summer.  They are absolutely perfect for weekend trips to the zoo on hot summer days!  I know these lemon ones will be on constant rotation over the next few months!

Ruffled

IMG_9609IMG_9638IMG_9630
Hello everyone, welcome back!  Thank you all so much for your positive response to my new “My Boston” series!  Writing a Boston Travel Guide has been something I’ve wanted to do since I was in high school, and I am beyond excited to have the chance to share my neighborhood guides with you all!

I have been seeing ruffled skirts everywhere for the past few months, but none of them spoke to me the way this “bisque beige” number from LOFT!  I love how the neutral color really lets the ruffles make a statement on their own!

Now and Later Cold Shoulder Sweater

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  Hope you all had a great weekend.  Today I’m going to be sharing two ways to wear this cold shoulder sweater from LOFT.  B told me it was cute twice the first day I wore it so you KNOW it must be doing something right.  My favorite part about the cold shoulder trend is how easily it blends the gaps between seasons.  I can wear it with jeans on a colder spring day, or throw on a pencil skirt when the weather is more on the mild side!

 

Outfit Details – Sweater: LOFT | Skirt: Banana Republic | Jeans: Lucky Brand | Earrings: Banana Republic (old, similar here) | Necklace: Elizabeth and James | Lip gloss: Nars ‘Chelsea Girls’ | Lipstick: NARS ‘Cruising’ | Nails: Essie “Bachelorette Bash”

Eggnog After Work

img_7478

Welcome back guys!  I hope you all had a great week.  Today’s holiday outfit is inspired by those impromptu happy hours after work where you have to take your 9-5 outfit out into the real world.  This skirt is the most festive pencil skirt possibly ever and there’s no reason for it to not make an appearance once per week until Christmas.  Seriously guys this is not a drill.  It adds a bit of holiday happiness, to your work day, but by swapping your blazer for a leather jacket at 5:01pm. all of a sudden you’re ready for some well deserved Christmas Cheer.
