WINTER-PROOF WEAR

Fortunately, we’ve been experiencing a mild winter here in Boston and I’ve had absolutely no complaints. During the winter months, I’m notorious for wearing my UGGS into the ground. I’m just not a rain boot/snowboot person; I mean is anyone really a rainboot/snowboot person? What I mean is, I’d much rather have wet feet than wear heinous, uncomfortable, rubber boots. It wasn’t until I started working at my current job that I realized I didn’t have to put my beloved UGGS through hell. These Original Muck Boot Company Verona leather boots have given my unequipped shoes their lives back. They’re easy to pull on, 100% waterproof leather, and they look super cute with a variety of outfits, so as not to sacrifice fashion for function. And while I always resort to a chunky knit when the weather gets frightful,  I decided to give them rest and layered my favorite UNIQLO plaid shirt over a light heather grey sweater. I think I’m ready for a real winter storm now… actually…nope…no…I’m not.

AUTUMN ON ACORN STREET

Fall is coming in hot, well— actually, really freaking cold. I’ve been all about layers lately and have been in need of some new fall favorites. I finally made my way to Primark this weekend at Downtown Crossing, and it was EVERYTHING I hoped it would be. If you’re planning on going, prepare to block out 4 or more hours of your day. There is so much to see, and you just HAVE to see it all. They have everything from cozy chunky sweaters to perfect pumps for a night out; all at reasonable prices. Anyway, I got this plaid jumper from UNIQLO a couple weeks ago, and with the recent cold weather I knew I needed to layer it. This chocolate brown turtleneck from Primark was NINE DOLLARS and the quality is serious. To warm my legs, I put on these grey knit tights and finished the look with the ultra comfortable suede wedges, (ALSO, from Primark). I’m not crazy about wearing dresses to work, but this one is too cute not to wear all fall long. I know that it screams prep school chic, however when you stick with classics you can’t go wrong.

FLANNELED FOR FALL

DSC_0860DSC_0831DSC_0857DSC_0873 editedDSC_0889 editedDSC_0921 editedDetails: UNIQLO red and blue plaid shirt, here | Zara distressed jeans, similar here | Superga slip-on sneakers c/o J. Jill, here |Sperry high top Betty Chukka boot, similar here |

Fall is for flannel. I probably purchase at the very least one flannel a season. I prematurely purchased this one from UNIQLO in August, because I was super pumped for the fall season. Fortunately, I was able to wear it this past weekend and I decided to pair it with my favorite distressed denim pants from ZARA. I’m typically not picky as to where I get my flannels, but I will say this one is not only exceptionally comfortable but the quality is serious, and $29.90 is a modest price point. While denim is the perfect counterpart, I fully intend on pulling out my black leather pants—a great way to take this look up a notch.

SUMMER UNI

DSC_0495 editedDSC_0510 editedDSC_0516 editedDSC_0508 editedDSC_0525 editedDetails: UNIQLO jogger pants in natural, here  | Abercrombie & Fitch high neck white crop tank, here  | Lulu’s espadrille wedges, here |

I’ve finally found my summer work uniform, it took some time—mostly because I couldn’t find the right pant. Since the jogger pant  surfaced as a significant trend, I’ve been on a mission to find a well fitted pair (specifically for the summer months). Not to mention, someone very rude told me that in order to wear jogger pants you MUST be “absolutely stunningly beautiful and/or extremely tall and thin.” That poor nameless and misinformed sap underestimated me. I will admit, the jogger pant is difficult for the vertically challenged. Take it from me, someone whose lived a life of rolled up and cuffed under pants for far too long. So you can imagine my surprise when I walked into UNIQLO and met my match, (no tailor required). They are THE perfect fit, and regardless of your height they just work. The elastic tapered bottom makes them easy to fit and ‘scrunch up’ if necessary (don’t worry it’s not) and the top half is well fitted, more so than any other pair I’ve come across. Often times with ‘scrunching up’ comes a puffy, unflattering top half, but that doesn’t exist with these. So in between sporting sundresses and shorts I will be able to combat an ice box office AND look cute with my newly loved joggers.

JUST BE COOL

IMG_7068 editedIMG_7066 editedIMG_7096 editedIMG_7097 editedIMG_7129 editedIMG_7136 (2) editedDetails: Ann Taylor white tank, similar here | Abercrombie and Fitch denim jacket, similar here  | UNIQLO black drawstring lounge pants, similar here |

It’s FINALLY Friday, and I am SO ready to lounge out this weekend. Lately, my weekends have been jam packed up until now, and while I still have a lot to do I’m looking forward to doing it in my UNIQLO lounge pants. These bad boys are comfortable, and light-weight making them appropriate enough for luke warm spring days like today. I also want to give a shout out to my mirror face making an appearance in today’s post—- HAHAH. Doesn’t everyone have an unintentional mirror face? I think mine is more severe than most, and while attempting to look like a BAMF my mirror face slipped out—oops! The truth is, this outfit isn’t typical for me. I mean yes, in a perfect world I would be wearing a baseball cap and sweats every day of the week, but I get bored easily and as you can probably tell my style is a little inconsistent. But that’s what I love most about it; it’s fun to use clothing to represent different pieces of yourself—everyone’s a little bit of a BAMF once in and while. And if you’re like me and you’re just NOT…ever, then at least you can try and look the part. If you’re the type of person who only wears black or would never wear a dress, do me a favor and try out something new. I promise, you’ll surprise yourself, and it’s SO much fun! Think of it as playing a part in a movie or a play, but the main character isn’t the self that you know, instead it’s a tiny piece of who you are brought to life. You’ll be surprised how much a  trip outside your comfort zone will change your wardrobe, it’ll add variety and dimension. So…what do you have to lose?! It’s the weekend…and as Countess LuAnn would say, “just be cool, don’t be all….uncool”, just take the rest of the day to let those wise weekend words seep in ;).
