Spring Cross Body Bags

Spring Crossbody Bags





I feel like it's so much easier to carry a small bag when it's warm outside. Having a smaller bag forces you to narrow it down to the essentials and you might realize that's all you need! Most of these bags carry more than you'd think anyway and the spring colors look great with jeans and tank tops or colorful sundresses.

What to Wear to a Work Retreat

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

This week my office had an offsite meeting on Cape Cod at a hotel on the beach. I know, it sounds glamorous, but unfortunately we only had one day of sunny weather. The rest of the time we had sessions and meetings around the hotel. I was struggling with what to pack and since Cape Cod is casual and the meeting was outside of our already-casual workplace, I brought a bunch of light jackets, easy tops and jeans. My outfits went something like this:


What to Wear to a Work Retreat






If you haven't been to Cape Cod, I definitely suggest checking out the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth. It's an adorable place and literally right on the water!





Happy Monday!

Weekend Outfit

Monday, April 14, 2014

Top (Banana Republic, on sale!), Jeans (7FAM "The Skinny" Jeans), Sandals (Jack Rogers), Clutch (Gigi New York), Earrings (Kate Spade)




Finally got around to taking an outfit picture! It was almost 70 degrees and sunny in Boston over the weekend so I had to take advantage and share at least one picture of my spring outfit. I want to try and add more outfit pictures to this blog and when it's nice weather there's just no excuse not to!


Also, these 7FAM jeans are the most comfortable skinny jeans I've found in recent years. They are really stretchy, but still have enough structure and I love the ankle length and dark blue wash. They are pretty good at holding their shape as well. I highly recommend them!

Rainy Day Outfit

Rainy Day Outfit







It's been raining non-stop here in Boston for a few days now and even though I resisted buying them for so long, I'm actually wishing I had a pair of rubber boots to wear right about now. These black Hunter boots would be adorable with skinny jeans tucked in, a nylon and waterproof Tory Burch tote and a stylish hat and umbrella.

Army Inspired

Army Inspired






I've been seeing military vests and jackets around a lot and I love how they can complete a casual look with jeans and a top. There are tons of ways to incorporate the military look though like with skinny jeans, flats or an accent piece, like a scarf or hat. Here are some of my favorite picks of army inspired apparel. I recently saw the army green Rag&Bone jeans and a ton of military vest styles at my local TJ Maxx! It's amazing what you can find there!

Nordstrom Sale Items: Shoes + Bags

Nordstrom Sale Items: Shoes & Bags






It's that weird in between time toward the end of winter and beginning of spring. Sometimes those weird times are the best times to buy items you've had your eyes on. Nordstrom has some great stuff on sale even though they aren't really publicizing it. A lot of last season's colors are marked down along with some of the early spring releases. However, I don't really count brown or pink as seasonal or trendy colors; they can really work anytime. Also, I'm in the market for some new sandals, either gladiators or wedges, and Nordstrom has some great ones that are already discounted. 



Happy shopping!

I've been out of commission the past few days because I got my wisdom teeth out. Now, I'm finally getting around to sharing a few OOTD's from earlier in the week. The weather is just barely starting to break into spring so I've still been wearing lots of jeggings, boots and lightweight jackets. Hopefully soon I'll be able to wear flats, cropped pants and t-shirts!




Happy Monday!
