WIDE LEG CROPS AND A FAVORITE KNIT

Details: Ann Taylor wide leg crop pants with lace detail (older), equally cute style here | Melrose and Market via Nordstromrack cowl neck knit sweater, here | Franco Sarto via Marshall’s black tassel slides, similar here |

Given that the snow has yet to stop, I’m still wearing my chunky knits but baring some skin to let Mother Nature know that I’m ready for warmer temps. I have become somewhat addicted to wide leg crop pants. Not only are they super comfortable, but they look so stylish on and have the ability to bring a casual outfit up a notch. Instead of my standard pumps, I went with slides (staying on the comfort theme) and I felt super cozy but also extremely stylish. I’m hoping I never have to pull on this grey cowl neck sweater (even though it’s amazingly comfy) until next winter. I will, however, be wearing these wide leg crops well into the spring…if that season ever decides to make an appearance.

VACATION MODE: SLEEP. BEACH. REPEAT.

Details: Floral drawstring shorts from TJ Maxx, similar here |

I am SO excited to go on a little stay-cation. Next week, I’m heading to my family’s beach house on the Long Island Sound in CT. I’m way overdue for a vacation and am super excited to have no plans, wear these comfy drawstring shorts every day and lay peacefully in the sand. It’s so funny because the past two years, we’ve gone on a fun tropical vacation and don’t get me wrong, that’s always a fun time, but I like the idea of really having no plans. I spend every day organizing and managing my workload, that I’m just excited to not know what I’m doing and not following agenda or a “To Do” list. Aside from shooting some new looks for the blog, I fully intend on living in my bathing suit, cover-up and these comfortable and socially acceptable floral drawstring shorts. I wish I had purchased another pair because they’re just too cute, but I guess I can swap back forth between cover-ups and oversized tees. I’m also excited to eat home cooked food that I don’t necessarily have to purchase OR cook–whoa! What does your ideal summer vacation look like?

MY SUPER SIZED KNIT

DSC_0495editedDSC_0513editedDSC_0531editedDSC_0540editedDSC_0535editedDetails: oversized grey cardigan with navy and coral accents, similar here |

This week flew by AND we’re expected to have 70-degree weather next week! Can you believe that!? So since this may be one of the last times I can cozy up in an oversized knit, I decided to go all out. Honestly, wearing such a comfy cardigan to work on a chilly day is like being hugged constantly by a teddy bear. It’s comforting and soothing. When I received this cardigan in the mail,  I wasn’t expecting it to be this big. It’s one size and is quite honestly, an intimidating article of clothing to work with. I admit, at first, I wasn’t sure I was going to keep it, but I gave it a test drive, channeled my inner Tim Gunn and “made it work.”  I have to say, we really lucked out with such a mild winter. I’m thrilled to have had coatless days in February and 70-degree temps in March. Let’s keep this going, Boston. Wear out all of your oversized knits while you still can and I guarantee no matter how large it is, you can make it work.

CLASSIC & COATLESS

DSC_0872editedDSC_0906editedDSC_0886editedDSC_0929editedDSC_0949editedDetails: Lightweight open-stitch sweater c/o J.Jill, here  | Isaac Mizrahi (old) suede boots, similar here |

I never feel more myself than when I’m in a plain white tee and jeans. I don’t know, there’s just something so timeless and classic; I always feel like I’m walking out of a Calvin Klein ad. And considering we’ve been experiencing some pretty mild weather, I don’t think it’ll be long before I’m walking around Southie coatless. I have to admit, my chunky knits are getting pretty tired looking and I’m becoming restless. So, in an attempt to lighten my wardrobe load, I’ve begun investing in some lighter knits, beginning with this effortless, J.Jill lightweight open-stitch sweater. It’s the white tee of knits and I was actually able to wear it this weekend sans coat–helloooo 60 degree weather! I’m pumped to start prepping my spring closet, I think we can pretty much say goodbye to winter right?! Phew! That wasn’t so bad at all.

GUILT-STRICKEN

I have another guilty pleasure to confess, and while I may have already spilled some in my bio–there’s more. Instead of boring you with how often I binge on reality TV or occasionally like to eat whip cream out of the can or the fact that I could quite FRANKly live off of hot dogs for the rest of my life– oh that reminds guilty pleasure #802—corny puns. Okay I’m done. Today, I have a clothing guilty pleasure to share—I have this thing for “drug rug” hoodies, more appropriately known as Baja hoodies.  I’m shamelessly sharing with you my weekend, errand-running, lazy sunday-ing staple hoodie, but it’s not like all of my other heather grey sweatshirts that were purchased as mementos on family vacations or to serve as proof that I did in fact visit Harvard…bookstore. This is a badass, boho-chic, hoodie with a past kind of “sweatshirt” and no matter what Giuliana Rancic may accuse me of, this will not leave my wardrobe.

To add to these comfy vibes, I included my Sperry Topsider boots; they have been my go-to lately and if I could successfully wear them with ALL dresses and skirts I would (guilty pleasure #803). Well, I think I’ve shared enough!
