Scallop-Hem Cape along with Mistletoe and Holly

December 1st, 2017

Scallop-Hem Cape || Turtleneck || Navy Loafer Mules || Red Lips  The other day my Mom and I headed out Draghi Farms to stock up on mistletoe kissing balls and holly covered wreaths for our front door. Within the last week, I’ve seen my little New England town go from corn stocks decorated lampposts to boxwood garland entries in a blink of an eye. New Englanders really go full steam ahead when it comes to decorating with wreaths this holiday season. Whether you are sticking a wreath on each window, door or gate; a lot of New England colonial homes are…

The Perfect White Tee

May 18th, 2017

Finding the perfect white tee has taken me 22 years, but it was worth the wait. I’ve tried tees from Nordstroms, Anthropologie, J.Crew, Free People, Hanes; you name it I’ve tried it.

So this year, I decided to try J.Crew Factory’s version of the ‘basic white…

Riverside Hike

February 24th, 2016

Turtleneck || Jacket || Leggings || Sneakers  The other day New England surprised us all, with some 50 degree weather (ahh). When I heard the warm weather was coming I planned for an early morning, grabbed my sneakers and walked to a local coffee shop. Once all charged up on coffee I continued my walk down to the Connecticut River, one of my favorite places to walk. During the summer I’m constantly walking down to the river with friends and occasionally riding my bike to a local New England dinner and stocking up on lobster rolls.  I’m literally…

Winding New England Roads

February 19th, 2016

Warm Sweater (old, similar listed) || Leggings || Boots (old, new style linked) || Planner || Glasses Last week was by far the coldest week in New England, and when the rough winter weather roles in I bundle up and work locally. I shot these images with my mom while walking from my house to a local coffee shop, in this cozy casual fashion. One of my favorite parts of New England are all the old winding roads, when summer comes I love just walking around my town and exploring new roads with old friends.  Yet until the summer…

Navy Blazer & Historic Homes

February 16th, 2016

Dreamer by Debut Shirt || Navy Blazer || Jeans || Hat || Heels  I’m writing this post from the comfort of my bed because let’s face it New England is way too cold this week! I’ve been having the hardest time putting together outfits I can wear without freezing, so I’ve recently gotten very good at the art of layering. My mother and I went over to Old Wethersfield to visit some friends and I fell in love with their New England homes. I usually gravitate more towards standard colonial homes but this brick mansion had me at…

Black Floral Dress

February 11th, 2016

Chicwish Dress || Heels || Purse || Necklace Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to pull out that floral dress & step into those heels; however this Valentine’s Day it looks like New England is going to be just a tad chilly! It’s going to 14 degrees and that is just a tad to chilly for me. Yet it’s Valentine’s day so I’ll be dressing the part in this lovely black floral dress.  This week was really cold in New England and it snowed for most of it, so I decided for Valentine’s day I’m going to spend my…

Professional in Pink

February 9th, 2016

Fluffy Pink Cardigan || Shirt || Boyfriend Jeans || Heels || Necklace I think I often get in the routine of wearing black, white and grey because I think it looks chic and professional; however adding color to your wardrobe can really allow you to make a statement. When I saw this fuzzy pink cardigan on Chicwish, I couldn’t help but take the plunge and purchase it. It’s a great statement piece especially for February with Valentine’s Day around the corner, and it won’t break the bank either.  I’m working on adding more color into my wardrobe and…

Mystic Seaport

January 31st, 2016

White Blouse || Jeans || Necklace || Boots || Purse (old, similar here)  One of my favorite parts of blogging is being able to travel to places I otherwise wouldn’t visit. Last week I traveled down to Mystic Seaport for a New England themed photo shoot, in the middle of winter (so cold). I’ve actually never visited Mystic Seaport during the winter & I fell in love with it’s New England winter charm. I’m use to visiting Mystic during the summer and being surrounded by New Yorkers visiting from the city, and a town full of tweens and…

Warm Tweed Jacket

January 29th, 2016

Ward Tweed Jacket || Shirt || Necklace || Hat || Jeans || Booties Happy Friday! I’m lucky enough to have a Whole Foods near my town so the other day I ran to grab some flowers to spruce up my desk. I wanted something different so I went with this beautiful arrangements. I grabbed the flowers and some much needed macaroons (my weakness), and headed over to a local coffee shop to grab some coffee before heading home. Anyone else obsessed with this Blair Waldorf tweed jacket? It screams Gossip Girl to me & I can’t help but feel like a…

Marled Blush Turtleneck

January 28th, 2016

Turtleneck Sweater (on sale) || Coat || Black Jeans || Black Heels || Purse I’m obsessed this season with this marled blush turtleneck sweater that J.Crew launched this winter! My closet is filled with neutral colors, it’s what I love wearing and it pops with my brown hair, so when J.Crew added slight coloring to make neutral sweaters…I couldn’t help myself. I bought this sweater when Matt & I went to Boston, and it was probably my favorite purchase!  I took these pictures last week on Matt’s last day in Connecticut, so sad. He tagged along on this…
