Tops to invest in this spring

 

 

 

 

Bell sleeves are my favorite and these two tops are my go to shirts for spring. This pink Asos shirt is still available on the website for $20. Click here to buy one for yourself or check out other bell sleeve looks. I just got this top from Zara last week and it cost $49.90.  It’s cute right? Ever since I bought my yellow J.Crew coat I fell in love with the color.

Tea time at the Boston Public Library

This past weekend I crossed another thing off my Boston To-Do list, Tea at the Boston Public Library with my boyfriend. The winter tea schedule ends on January 31st and getting a reservation was extremely difficult but lucky for me, I got a spot!  Our reservation was at 12:30 which was the perfect time because we were starving! We had sweets, scones, finger sandwiches and delicious fruity tea. With some prosecco on the side, tea time was everything I hoped for. I think the library has a tea schedule during the summer so keep a lookout for that. I know a few other hotels in Boston also have a tea schedule like the Langham, The Taj, Four Seasons, and the Ritz.

High tea is a cute weekend date idea for you and your significant other. The environment was very relaxed so you don’t need to “dress” up. Overall high tea gets a 10 out of 10 from me! It’s definitely not an every weekend thing but I do want to go back in a few months.  My new Asos dress was perfect for the beautiful weather we had this weekend here in Boston. Whenever it’s above 50 degrees in the winter EVERYONE comes out. We know it’s only a matter of time before the next snowstorm hits. I hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

Asos Dress & H&M Flats

This dress reminds me of the Wall Charades account (by Jennifer Lake) I follow on Instagram. Bloggers submit photos of themselves behind cool backgrounds around the U.S. I fell in love with this dress because of the color and fun design. I don’t own much green and this was the dress I needed to change my mind about the color. My flats are from H&M and they are so dependable. I’m pretty sure I bought these when I was in desperate need of flats and they’re still in great shape.

When I don’t feel like throwing on heels or my boots, my H&M flats alway’s comes to the rescue. When the weather is dreary, I like to keep it bright with this dress. Life news.. I started a new job recently and I’m so happy, excited, over the moon.. All of that! There was a time when I felt like my life was on pause and I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. I’m still young and I have a lot of learning to do but I’m excited to see where this position takes me. What’s new with you guys? Any fun New Year updates?! Comment below and let me know!

 

Top five fall boots

This weather is beautiful, isn’t it! I’m in love with this cool fall breeze because I can finally wear my boots. I never know what to expect with this weather but since October is next week, I know I’ll be wearing my boots constantly. I kept a few of my boots in good shape so I don’t need to buy a ton of new shoes. One of my favorite things to do is go shoe shopping so why not dedicate a blog post to the top five shoes I want right now. Click the ShopStyle links below to browse.

Next week I head back to Paris!!! YAY!!!  These Asos boots are coming with me on the trip. Comfortable travel shoes are a necessity when you plan on walking around during your vacation. Where are some of your favorite places to buy fall shoes? I like DSW, Asos, and Loft. Also, if you guys have any restaurant or bar recommendations for my trip I would love them!

I love that in-between time when it feels like summer is never going to end. But it’s also annoying when you can’t figure out what to wear because you already started buying cardigans and new jeans. Loft recently had a sale so I picked up some cute sweaters that work for this weird weather. I bought this tasseled tunic sweater and a crochet striped sweater. My jeans and shoes are from Zara.  I’m normally a straight leg jean type of girl but during the summer they were becoming a pain to wear.

The thing I really love about simple looks is how comfortable you are. I also feel more like myself when I’m dressed like this. When I was younger I cared about how I looked when I would go out and I would always want to impress the crowd. Now I could care less about what people think about my outfit and how I look. I don’t get dressed for anyone but myself and I love it. Self-confidence is everything and once you feel comfortable in your skin you’ll be ok. Anyway, I hope you guys have a great week!!!

Fall Shopping

Dress: Asos, Shoes: Kate Spade

This Labor day weekend consisted of Netflix and comfortable clothes. I also did a little fall shopping in the city too. I love holiday weekends because everyone is out of town and tourist aren’t crowding the stores and streets. I stopped in Nordstrom Rack and Gap to pick up some necessary fall staples. I like to do my seasonal shopping in small batches so I can put the outfits together in my head. I have to make sure all of my clothes match up with a majority of my shoes and purses. A few weeks ago I bought this swing dress from Asos for $20. They always have sales and this is the best time to grab some fall items from their website. Below are a few of my favorite fall picks from Asos right now.

Summer florals

Now that summer is here I have no excuse to stay indoors. I want to enjoy as many outdoor activities as I can and try new brunch spots and restaurants. Boston in the summer can be so beautiful. Waking up to warm weather and clear skies is the best thing.. Summer also means a closet refresh for me. I need a weekend to go through everything I’m keeping and items I want to give up. I was browsing through my closet and I saw this jumpsuit I bought about a year ago at a small boutique in Brooklyn. I was on my way to brunch and I saw this beauty. I wasn’t even looking for a new jumpsuit but I knew it would be perfect for a night out. And I actually wore it that same night out for drinks in the city. I rarely shop at boutiques and this was one of those times I found a gem. Below are some other floral jumpsuits I’m loving right now!

 

 

Spring workwear

When the weather is beautiful and the sky is clear there’s nothing you can do but sit outside and appreciate it. This past weekend we lost an hour of sleep due to daylight savings time and I really really hate when that happens.  Every time I looked  down at my watch it hurt to see the day go by so fast. Also it was so hard to wake up this morning but I’m not sure that has to do with the time change.  Overall I think my weekend was pretty great.  I spent the weekend getting a massage, eating lunch at my one of my favorite spots South End Buttery, and shopping for new bath products at Follain. Not a bad way to spend your weekend. This Asos dress is great for work during the warmer months and it’s also on sale!  Asos has a huge selection of cute, comfortable and affordable workwear.

Good Morning

The most peaceful sleeps happen when I don’t need to set an alarm the next day. I stretch and snuggle into my warm blankets and hide my face from the sun. I never stay in bed late unless I really need the sleep but I do try to stretch a few more minutes in bed if I can. I start my mornings off with Maxwell house coffee and some breakfast. If I don’t have coffee in the morning my day seems off so I try to have at least one cup a day. My condo gets such great light and views of Boston. I get to wake up, look out my window and see water and the beautiful Boston skyline. I think waking up like this is too good to be true.
