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!

REVAMP THE OLD WITH ACCESSORIES

Details: Express Deep V Pink top, similar here | Charming Charlie The Austin earring, here |

I had the best vacation week last week! It was sunny nearly every day, I read a total of four books and I was with my two favorites: mom and dad. Although it has been difficult to get back to work, I’m pleasantly surprised at how fast this week is going…it’s Wednesday already! With these steamy temps, I’ve been resorting to sleeveless tops and bare leg. One of my recent favorite tops is this flowy pink deep V top. It’s comfortable and simple. In an effort to protect my bank account, I’ve been purchasing fun earrings to make some of my older tops feel new. Even though this top is a newbie to my closet, I decided to take things up a notch and accessorize with this colorful complementary 3-ball earrings from Charming Charlie. I love these earrings so much that I purchased them in a couple other colors. What!?!? I’m still saving, they were only $12 (blushing). Cheers to hump day and saving money! Instead of collecting new tops and dresses, revamp your oldies but goodies with some fun accessories. Trust me, you’ll look at your older clothes in a whole new way.

COATIGANS & LEATHER

dsc_0677editeddsc_0690editeddsc_0704editeddsc_0708editeddsc_0718editeddsc_0721editeddsc_0725Details: LOFT Plaid Cape Coat, here | Hue black faux leather leggings, here | Gap turtleneck sweater, similar here |

I’ve always shopped at Ann Taylor, but I was never really a fan of the LOFT until I happened to pass by recently and a few things caught my eye. And I was pleasantly surprised to find a ton of cute sweaters, cardigans, and dresses. They even have activewear from Lou & Grey–really cute, and reasonably priced. I wasn’t even in there 5 minutes before I had an arm full of clothing to try on. I was going nuts, and as soon as I laid my eyes on this coatigan (that’s what they call it, a coatigan; clever right?!), I knew I had to have it. It’s perfect, I love the classic check pattern, especially the light gray, black and beige color combination. For the chilly days ahead, layering it over an extra comfy knit is a must, and this oversized turtleneck from GAP is SO comfortable that I have it another a couple different colors (not sorry). I’m also pretty excited that leather legging season is back. I have several pairs of leather leggings, all from different places, but these HUE leggings are by far my favorite. They are perfectly priced, comfortable and not too heavy or warm. Some leather leggings are so uncomfortably hot that it’s difficult to wear them. It finally feels like I can get in full fall/winter wardrobe and now, I can add the LOFT to my list. Sorry bank account!

MY FAVORITE TWOFER

dsc_0593editeddsc_0610editeddsc_0605editeddsc_0647editeddsc_0648editeddsc_0650editeddsc_0655Details: Circle Scarf Open-Neck Cardigan c/o Zaful, here  | Hue black faux leather leggings, here | Black Sperry booties, here |

I know you’re absolutely tired of me talking about my “chunky knits”, but you’re going to have to get used to it. The Boston fall weather is here to stay and I think there may even be a winter chill in the air lately. Fortunately, I haven’t had to pull out my puffer coat yet, but it’s only a matter of time. In high school, I rarely wore sweatshirts, even though I likely had a dozen as mementos from every family vacation. But I love them; they are the comfort food of clothing. And while they aren’t very flattering and don’t necessarily accentuate the features of your top half, the warmth and coziness are undeniable. This open-neck cardigan with circle scarf attached is the answer to my chunky knit dreams. It’s like wearing a blanket and did I mention, the scarf is ATTACHED?! It’s even long enough to wrap twice, but can also be left to lay across your chest. It’s from Zaful and I have to say, Zaful is the place to go to fulfill your fall fashion needs. There are so many sweaters I’m pining for at the moment. Like this one, this one, this one and this one. I can go on, but I’ll let you get some shopping done.
