2019: CAR COATS + A SUGAR DETOX

           

Going back to work after 10-14 days off feels like an actual slap in the face. I don’t even know how to function normally. I don’t often sleep in, but over break, I slept well until 8:30-9a.m., and now I’m afraid I won’t be able to make my usual 6:15 a.m. wake up call. Someone help! Not to mention, the weather is expected to get a little chillier these next couple weeks, and I’m far from prepared for that. And while my typical OOTD on vacation consisted of leggings, no makeup, and a chunky sweater, I did try to spruce it up a bit, in an effort to feel more productive. One of my coziest and most put-together staples is this reversible camel and grey wool car coat. It IS everything. It’s not stiff or overbearingly heavy like your average wool coat. Instead, it is more like a more substantial cardigan with pockets and a more esteemed collar. It’s light enough to layer with chunky turtlenecks, sweaters, and the perfect flowy button-up like the one styled. Lately, I’ve been resorting to these suede block heels, but I recently purchased some low, neutral suede booties that will look equally as good, but a little more casual.

I’m thinking my first day back to the office tomorrow will consist of my stretchiest most acceptable pants, a loose tee, and the chunkiest/coziest knit I could find. Sounds good, right? Wish me luck as I head back to work, detox from sugar and try not to drink more than three cups of coffee in the first two hours of work.

Cheers to 2019! I haven’t made any resolutions yet. Thinking of setting some goals, though. TBD!

THE AMERICAN MEME & TEDDY BEAR COATS

Details: Tiger Mist Teddy Jacket, currently sold out  similar jacket from Gap, here |

I’m currently watching American Meme on Netflix, and if you haven’t already, you need to check it out. It’s super interesting and entertaining. It’s actually slightly alarming that the memes, social media and influencers have become such a huge part of the American culture, and to be able to watch the evolution of social media and the rise of these influential, insta-famous influencers is INSANE. I remember when I was interning at an online subscription beauty box doing social media my first year out of college, and I was talking to my boyfriend and his family discussing whether or not social media would last and if the rise of influencers is actually something to seriously consider as a career/part of marketing. Immediately, my bf and his family laughed and said it would likely fizzle out. I hesitantly agreed…that was six years ago and social media has only evolved and grown. As a marketing professional, it’s so interesting to watch, learn and navigate through this brand new age of marketing.

Okay. Now that I’m done plugging American Meme, let’s talk about this comfy cozy teddy coat that I purchased from Nordstrom at the beginning of the winter season. I’m not sure I need to really sell this must-have since it’s not only super cozy and necessary for the winter season, but it’s stylish and not easy to wear since it’s not as bulky. It’s been so cold in Boston lately that I would even wear this under my puffer coat since I’m always so cold in the office…and in general. It’s also roomy enough for you to wear a relatively thick layer underneath. If you live in a mild climate this could potentially serve as your mid-winter coat. I also feel like I’m channeling my inner JLO with this outfit, straddling the crosswalk in the streets of South Boston, aka “my block.” I’m definitely less JLO and more nameless Hallmark movie character trying to master her best urban wear/big city outfit. Introduce me to a hometown flannel wearing hero and put a bow on it…Happy Holidays!

LET QUILTED COAT & VEST SEASON BEGIN

Details: Ann Taylor bonfire sweater, here | Quilted down coat in Peat c/o J.Jill, here |

So we’ve had a few true fall days, but it looks like we’re going to be back in the 80-degree weather today. I don’t know about you, but I find it super frustrating planning my outfit in the morning because I’m cold when I wake up and sweating on my lunch break. Despite what we might be experiencing, the season we’re currently in is in fact fall. And that means that we’re in quilted coat season. Every fall I seem to get myself a new quilted coat and this olive green lightweight down coat from J.Jill has become my favorite. It’s super lightweight and breathable so it’s actually easy to wear in this flighty weather. I typically gravitate toward taupe or black, but I’m loving this dark olive green color because it’s neutral yet adds a necessary pop of color. Speaking of color, this Ann Taylor Bonfire sweater is AMAZING. It’s a 70’s throwback (I think LOL). I love the vintage look and the pop of color really brightens up my neutral fall wardrobe. It’s comfortable and fun to layer with a quilted coat, denim jacket or puffer vest–HELL YES!

I think it’s safe to say that my fall closet is starting to come together, we just need Mother Nature to cooperate.
