Happy Tuesday, world! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was extra long thanks to Patriots’ Day, also known as Marathon Monday. If you live outside of Massachusetts and don’t celebrate Patriots’ Day, you are really missing out- it’s sort of accepted as almost being better than Christmas. Boston.com wrote an awesome article about why Patriots’ Day should be a Federal Holiday here, and I couldn’t agree with it more. It’s a really unique holiday where there aren’t any expectations or stipulations; just a bunch of crazy runners making the 26.2 mile trek towards the city as other just plain crazy Bostonians watch and cheer on every single runner as a community, the likes of which I have never seen anywhere else.
Today’s look is from this past weekend; filled with not only awesome holidays, but also awesome weather. This lightweight LOFT sweater is a perfect spring top, and will be equally amazing this summer to throw on at night when the temps drop a bit. I love the bright pink color (staying true to the new obsession I divulged here), and decided to go with all silver accents to keep the look a bit more subdued for a day spent watching baseball games and other low-key weekend activities.

Thanks for reading!
The bad news is we got more snow last night. But the good news is that spring is only three weeks away! For all of you who live in warmer weather climates, I would like to reiterate how envious I am of your living situation at least one more time. I was so cold while I took these pictures, but I really wanted to give this sweater proper attention at this exact moment because it is suitable for all weather climates. Whether you’re already transitioning into springtime or still have a few more weeks of winter, this fun neon sweater can be the perfect way to gear up for warmer weather or simply brighten up a drab winter day. Also: pockets.
It’s now super on sale in stores and online, but definitely worth popping into a LOFT store to check it out if you have a spare minute because when I was in there a couple weeks ago they had a ton of items in this fun coral shade!

Have a great week!
I love putting thought and care into my outfits, down to the very last detail. But there are certain days when the creativity just isn’t flowing for me, or I’m running late, or everything is either dirty or wrinkled. On those unfortunate days, I always reach for the same reliable outfit and makeup routine. A pair of boots, skinny jeans, a soft sweater, and a collared shirt never fail me. I love this blush, camel, and black combination; but I also do this combination with shades of blue frequently.

The holidays may be over, but by no means does that require sparkle and sequins leave with them! I love this Tommy Hilfiger sweater with its bright colors and subtle sparkle for keeping the dreary winter months exciting. I tend to dread the bitter cold of January and February, but layering (especially collars and sweaters) is one of my favorite ways to make it a bit more exciting. I went with minimal accessories to complement the sweater because, much to my dismay, the holidays are over.
Stay warm, and have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Sunday, world! Fair Isle sweaters are such a huge weakness of mine (I cannot stop buying them year after year!) I’m back in NYC this week visiting my family, so when I picked up this sweater at Old Navy a few weeks ago, it instantly reserved a spot in my suitcase. It is perfect for Christmastide celebrations- still festive and fun, but cozy and not fussy. With a car full of gifts and cookie trays, I was really tight on luggage space for myself when packing for this week. Fair Isle sweaters, with their fun patterns, are perfect to wear on their own; so I didn’t need to worry about trying to find space for extra accessories and layers. However this sweater is perfect for layering and accessorizing when you have your own closet available- check out some of my favorite ways below!

This week I’m excited to be sharing all of my Thanksgiving week outfits! With lots of downtime for catching up with the family I don’t see very often, I definitely plan on lots of comfortable sweaters making an appearance next week!
Big and cozy Fair Isle sweaters are all I ever want to wear on chilly weekends, and Thanksgiving is the perfect time to start! I am so excited to bring out my favorites again this year. I like to belt this cardigan together for extra warmth and a more polished look.
Fun shopping story: I saw this belt in a window display and loved it so much that I had to ask the sales associate to take it off of the mannequin for me! Now I find myself wearing it virtually nonstop all year long.

During the winter months, I rarely stray from my sweater-jeans-boots uniform (primarily for warmth and comfort reasons), so I’m always looking for ways I can spice up that every day ritual.
Enter these amazing Old Navy booties. I absolutely adore burgundy in the fall and all throughout the winter, and these are comfortable enough to walk around in all day. They are also super affordable, which makes me even more in love with them if possible. The LOFT sweater is soft and comfortable, and I love how the leopard print adds an element of fun to the outfit without being too overbearing. This is the perfect ensemble for a playful Saturday afternoon of exploring.
