Red Stripes

IMG_5520 IMG_5497

At long last, Memorial Day is right around the corner! Aside from all of the obvious reasons I love summer (pool parties, beach trips, and general nice weather), the constant excuse to wear Red, White, and Blue is definitely one my favorites.  This adorable Milly for DesigNation dress is the perfect piece for a casual party this weekend.  Just add some of your favorite American accessories and you are barbecue ready!

Sailor Stripes

When I saw these adorable stripes at J.Crew, I knew I totally had to have them.  Confession: this is actually intended as a beach cover-up and not an adorable tunic-like top (crazy, I know!) But I think it totally works in more settings than just as a coverup.  Caitlin over at Southern Curls & Pearls actually wore it as a dress here and it looked super cute.  I’m too tall to be able to pull off the dress by itself outside a beach environment, since it is a bit on the short side, but I totally love it with white jeans and think it makes for a great seaside look.

Weekend Stripes

IMG_4952 IMG_5008 IMG_4960

Finally- May’s first weekend is here! I’m celebrating by spending a weekend out exploring the North Shore with my sister in some bright orange jeans.  A day by the water (even if it’s not quite summer weather yet) always calls for a straw tote, in my book! It’s always important for me to wear comfortable shoes when I’m out doing some weekend exploring so that I can keep walking comfortably all day long, and if the opportunity to climb some rocks by the water arises, I’m prepared for it!

Splash of Orange

IMG_3940 IMG_3957 IMG_3956

Spring weather keeps making cameo appearances around Boston, and I could not be any more excited about it!  Warmer weather for me always means exploring new cities and rediscovering my own.  For these exciting spring days, a fun yet functional bag and cute but comfortable walking shoes are musts! I love the bright smoothie orange of this backpack and Sperry makes my absolute favorite walking shoes!  They’re super cute but can last all day long while exploring a city.

Americana

IMG_3059

I can’t get enough of anything American (Fourth of July is my favorite holiday, and I come from a pretty patriotic family) and fashion trends are no exception.  Red and blue is one of my favorite color combinations to wear, and I love when I find winter-approved ways to incorporate it into my wardrobe.  Plus, what’s more American than stripes and denim?!

Confession: I had been on the hunt for a red leather jacket since season one of Once Upon A Time (aka over three years ago!) when Emma debuted her signature look.  I was beyond ecstatic when I found this one at Ann Taylor- the moto and burgundy combination was the perfect fit for what I didn’t even know I was looking for!

A Nautical Winter

IMG_1996With temperatures now consistently below 40, I finally accepted the fact that winter is here for good.  Luckily, I found the perfect cold weather accessories to make myself a little bit more excited for the winter (but only a little).

I am seriously in love with these Sperry Top-Sider duck boots.  Not only are they great for walking through the snow and the slush, but they also bring one of my favorite summer trends (nautical stripes) into winter.  I could easily wear navy and red all summer long, and I love that these boots make it possible to do so in the winter as well!

Other winter trends I can’t get enough of: toggle coats, leather gloves, and plaid blanket scarves!
