Welcome back my friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. Today I’m sharing one more Valentine’s Day look for you all. As you can tell I’m not a huge fan of going all out with my outfit and I love incorporating black in to tone it down (like I did in this post on Friday). This dress is a new arrival from Banana Republic’s spring collection and I know it will look beautiful in a few months by itself in warmer weather!

Happy Weekend! I’m doing a surprise bonus post this Saturday since it’s finally October and my leather jacket collection can come out in full swing. They’ve been a staple in my fall wardrobe since I was in high school and I so look forward to bringing them back every October. This year I’m pairing them with booties that are both comfortable and stylish, plus great for traipsing around piles of leaves and old stone buildings.
Weather permitting, I’m heading up to Salem today for some witchy haunts and food truck fun! Do you guys have any fun fall plans for the weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

This striped shirt from French Connection is about three years old, and yet I cannot seem to stop wearing it this spring. I love when I have the chance to re-fall in love with some of my favorite pieces after years of wear. Stripes are always in fashion and I guess the navy and white combo has been really fitting in to my new repertoire of pinks and patterns alike this season.
We took these pictures outside of the beautiful (and recently renovated) Beverly Public Library. Libraries are definitely one of my happy places, and reading is one of my fundamental core values. Anytime I travel, the local library is always at the top of my “To See” list (including the Library of Congress, Huntington Library, and Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam). Seeing libraries receive the proper architectural attention that they deserve just makes my heart sing.

I absolutely love the process of getting dressed in the morning. Pairing items that that create a cohesive look or mixing different types with a coveted juxtaposition alike give me a tremendous amount of joy every week. Creating outfits is one of my favorite activities (and a fundamental propellant behind this blog).
However, I’d be lying if I said there weren’t some days when getting dressed made me want to pull all of my hair out. Sometimes I’m in a rush, others the creativity just isn’t there, and sometimes I swear I have “absolutely nothing to wear” (which couldn’t be further from the truth).
On these days, black is my savior. Does black ever not look chic? I hardly ever go the all-black route. In the winter months, this means lots of black and red combos. When the weather starts to turn a bit warmer though, it means incorporating bright whites into ensembles to add some much needed contrast and positive vibes.
I’ve mentioned that my dad is a man of distinguished taste. Any time he gives me the stamp of approval I know I’ve found a winning item. You’ll never catch my dad wearing what everyone else is wearing, and the clothes and shoes he likes are almost exclusively statement pieces. When he gave me the coveted stamp for these Topshop espadrilles (and my favorite TOMS) I was elated-what’s better than a stylish pair of flat shoes that are easy to walk around in?! As if I needed another excuse to wear these all spring long…

My eagerness to break out all of the florals as fast as possible is bordering on desperation at this point. I just keep telling myself that by mixing in plenty of darker winter items it will be TOTALLY FINE to ignore the three more weeks of official winter and jump the gun straight into spring. I can’t wait until nature starts to come to life again, and incidentally all the humans follow. The winter gloom has been too real.

I used to be hugely against leopard print- I think I always just associated it with the Jersey Shore and couldn’t fathom the day I would actively want to wear anything leopard. After seeing it done tastefully enough times over the years, I decided to embrace it- my leopard print flats are a staple in my wardrobe now (last seen here and here)! I’m a big fan of Sole Society, and when I saw this leopard scarf on their website for only $30, I knew it would work its way into my wardrobe sooner or later! The pattern is the perfect pop of fun and excitement to an all neutral look.

I am constantly trying to find ways to pull off the ‘summer dress in winter’ thing, and usually don’t succeed. Most of this problem is because my summer dresses come in primarily summer colors and aquamarine just doesn’t work in New England January under any circumstances. This little gem from Lucky Brand that I got a few years ago, fortunately comes with season-proof black sprinkled throughout and makes my job so much easier. Black on black on black with some pink sprinkled in is super easy to work with, so I added this pale pink scarf in the mix to keep the vibe happy and colorful. Spring, I’m coming for you…

Happy Election Day, America! Today’s look was inspired partly by today’s elections and partly by the 2016 Presidential Campaigns, but mostly by Mellie Grant and her bold tendency of embracing of America’s colors. Red, white, and blue is one of my all-time favorite color combinations, so I love any holiday that creates an opportunity to wear them.

Blue and yellow have always seemed like an easy color combination to me. Together they grace the Massachusetts’ State Flag and make up my hometown’s colors. This lightweight skirt and sleeveless chambray are perfect for hot August afternoons, with their breezy fabrics and light colors.
