DJ TANNER INSPIRED LOOK

Listen, I’m always on the lookout for comfortable and cute clothing. And while my workplace allows for expressive clothing, a sweat suit is definitely not permitted. So, when I saw this grey color block sweater and skirt set, I just had to have it. The color block pattern is reminiscent of a beloved sweater from Full House’s DJ Tanner, but there’s something charming about this 90’s inspired look. It would definitely be difficult to pull off tights with this, which is why I decided on my black suede Ivanka Trump OTK boots. It gives the look a bit of an edge and once the spring months roll around, I can definitely get away with styling some chic sneaks with this look. And yes, it is as comfortable as it looks. I love that it feels like I’m back in my 6-year old self’s sweat suit, yet I still manage to look stylish and on-trend. So, if you’re looking for something cute and comfy, this set is your best bet.

BOUTIQUE STATUS KNIT

During my wonderful holiday vacation, Josh and I visited his aunt and uncle in VA and enjoyed some mild winter weather. Don’t worry it was still sweater weather, but that’s all you needed–just a sweater. I, like most people, love a good cozy sweatshirt that I can live in, but they’re not always socially acceptable (especially for holiday festivities). I probably have one of the largest sweater collections, mostly because I can’t get rid of them, but this Willow Fair Isle fringe cardigan from J.Jill is definitely a knit I will never be able to part with. I love the fringe details and jacquard-knit pattern. It’s so unique and reminds me of a piece I would see at a specialty boutique: one of a kind. I love that I can wear it with black pants and a sleek black top and also dress it down with loose fitted leggings and a comfy tee. Now that I’m back in Boston, I wish this could be my only winter coat.

Cold winter weather stay away!

THE UNLIKELY DUO

Sweater weather is here and I’ve been going out of my mind because my fall clothes are all at “home” in New Jersey. I wasn’t prepared for the fall weather to happen so fast; it went from hot to cold like that! I guess I’ll have to go shopping until I can make it home to get my clothes ;). In the meantime, I did add a new addition to my wardrobe with this off-the-shoulder wide turtleneck knit sweater. I’ve been waiting  to wear it and was finally able to style it this weekend. It’s SO cozy AND it includes two of my favorite clothing features: bare shoulders and a turtleneck. It’s a sweater of unity, bringing the summer and fall seasons together to make a sexy yet cozy knit. And not only did I discover a new sweater style, BUT I found a fresh new  clothing site. That’s right, another shopping site to peruse and another virtual shopping cart to fill. Dress Lily offers a wide variety of clothing from swimwear to formal dresses and everything in between, all at a reasonable price. The quality is exceptional and there are so many options in each clothing category that you’ll have to continue to edit your shopping cart. You’ll also notice that I found my booties for the season and these adorable wedges are from DSW the designer is not one I’ve heard of before, Audrey Brooke. However, they’re comfortable and give me the height I need to make me eye level with my peers LOL. Even though I’m currently lacking in fall clothing I can assure you I’ll have some more new styles to share in the upcoming weeks! Hello, shopping spree!

COZY & CHAOTIC

DSC_0257editedDSC_0222 editedDSC_0228 editedDSC_0301editedDSC_0283editedDSC_0297editedDetails: Banana Republic carpet stitch open cardigan, here  | Lulu’s wedge booties, similar here |

We had a teensy bit of snow last night and since I wasn’t driving in it I was pretty giddy! Snow can be so peaceful but so chaotic at the same time. That’s kind of how I feel this week; lax laid back tired, but beyond chaotic and stressed. I don’t know what it is, but I am really not feeling 100% like myself. All I really want to do is wear chunky knits and (yoga) pants; it’s just that kind of week I guess. My boyfriend always tells me that I have 10 of the same sweater and he has a point; I can’t turn down a neutral chunky knit. To me, neutral knits are just so beautifully practical, so you can be sure that this beige Banana Republic carpet-stitch open cardigan was number one on my Christmas list. In addition to its neutral beige color, its large open collar makes it easy to wear with a variety of tops. I’m honestly not sure what I’ll be wearing for the rest of this chilly week, but if it were socially acceptable I would wear this cardigan until spring. Bring on the cozy!

FITTED KNITS

IMG_9358 editedIMG_9308 editedIMG_9360 editedIMG_9392 editedIMG_9390 editedIMG_9401IMG_9323Details: Textured-stripes pullover c/o J. Jill, here  | Light grey washed denim pants, similar here | d’Orsay flats c/o J. Jill, here |

It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of August, time seriously flies! The typical August weather didn’t fail to perform, considering these past couple days have been unmanageably steamy. Today, however is clear and crisp which leads me to believe that fall is on the horizon. I’m not trying to rush the fall season into play or anything, but my cutoffs and flip flops are tired and I’m becoming uninspired with my summer selection. I’ve slowly begun my fall wardrobe search and number one on my list are sweaters; you can never have enough. This J. Jill textured-stripes pullover is unlike my typical fall knits, that are bulky and oversized, however it has quickly become one of my favorites. I absolutely love its fit, I’ve realized with time how important it is to find garments that really fit. I appreciate brands like J. Jill, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor that have wide selections of petite clothing. I’ve always been short and my frame is narrow, so the average sweater always seems to look unattractively oversized, draping down well past my torso. This striped beauty is what a sweater is supposed to look like, it hits right above my hip, and is well fitted in the arms and shoulders. I paired it with my light grey wash denim pants to give it an edgy contrast and concluded the look with my d’Orsay flats also c/o J. Jill, which are the most COMFORTABLE flats I’ve ever worn. They come in a variety of colors, giving you the option to mix it up! So when you begin your fall shopping, you don’t have to steer away from the bulky oversized goodness of some sweaters, but keep in mind it’s important to have a selection of pullovers that ACTUALLY fit you well, making your weekend date nights manageable, yet cute in the cold months ahead (omg did I just say that….) Okay forget fall, just go outside and lay in the sun now!!!
