ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER MOCK NECK SWEATER

Details: Nordstrom Rack John & Jenn Instaria Mock Neck Sweater, here | Madewell High-Rise Skinny Jeans in black sea, here | Black Mule Pumps (old), similar here 

We’re seeing spring-like temps here in Boston, but I’m not convinced it’s sticking around. I know I’ve been MIA lately, and that’s mostly because it has been so difficult to get motivated with these dark, cold winter days. I’ve been wearing a combination of over-sized sweaters and denim on repeat, and one of my favorites is this grey and black mock neck sweater from Nordstrom Rack. I love how it looks on and instead of pairing it with my typical wedge booties, I decided to whip out my black mule pumps to add a level of sass and sophistication. I really love how sleek and sexy this look is with the added touch of some ripped jeans and skin-bearing pumps…it truly makes such a difference.

I’m trying to get back on track with my blog. It’s been so difficult to get motivated, and while I have some photos in my arsenal, I just haven’t been motivated enough to find the time. I’ve realized that I haven’t been putting my all into this and it’s showing. As a resolution, I’m going to be a concerted effort to be more consistent and add some more personal touches to blog, in an effort to let you into my life. That being said, I’m making some changes and will be focused on getting back to a more consistent schedule. This is more for me than anything. I’ve really enjoyed blogging and it’s something I’ve become super passionate about but it’s difficult to keep things consistent while balancing an extremely demanding job.

Now that I got that off my chest, I’m wishing you all a warm week and a successful one. Kick ass, babes!

THINK WARM THOUGHTS, THINK WARM THOUGHTS

Details: Cable Chenille A-Line Sweater Tunic, here| Camel suede wedge booties, similar here | 

I am SO over the cold and the snow. It was cute when it was flurrying during the holidays and went away the next morning. But this, what we’re seeing in Boston, is criminal. Not only did we get a foot of snow, but then it was 0-degrees this morning. ZERO DEGREES. So now all of the snow is frozen solid making it a mean rude snow, instead of a soft and cuddly one. I haven’t figured out a way to keep warm, aside from staying inside. I truly haven’t. Last night we walked to a restaurant and my legs were burning, they got so cold. Like frostbite through my jeans. But if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s dressing for indoor winter temps. I have been LIVING in this ivory chenille knit tunic. It is so comfortable and its A-Line shape makes it super flattering. Fortunately, we’re going to be seeing balmy temps of 36 to 40-degrees this week and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ll still be complaining about the cold but at least my face and legs won’t hurt.

Send help and thoughts of sunshine my way!

THE DRESS FOR WINTER

Details: c/o Banana Republic Fit-and-Flare Dress, here | Nude patent leather pumps, similar here |

Like many, I find it difficult to wear dresses in the winter months. I mean, not only am I as pale a tube of toothpaste, but so many dresses are sleeveless and I don’t really like to layer a cardigan on many dresses, it can look a bit frumpy. Needless to say, I don’t invest in winter dresses unless it makes sense and this baby blue dress is worth the investment. Not only is it super comfortable, the fit is sophisticated and classy AND it has sleeves. When I put this on, I thought: “If Kate Middleton were to come to the U.S. and had to find a last minute dress, this one would be on the top of her list.” It’s elegant and modest with a certain flair. I paired it with my favorite nude pumps, but it could look just as perfect with a colorful or metallic pump or even a sheer pair of tights to protect your legs from the cold. When I’m not cuddled in oversized knits, you’ll find me wearing this perfect-for-winter dress.
