This is totally my blogger dress. I got it at the LOFT Grand Reopening Party I hosted a couple weeks ago, and immediately wore it the following weekend to the Blog Better Boston Style Summit conference [which I totally have not recapped yet-- eek!]. It is possibly the comfiest thing I have ever owned, and flatters every single person I have seen it on so far. And I mean, navy + white stripes…. how could I really resist?
Somewhat related to my blogger maxi, the past month has completely reminded me why I maintain this little corner of the internet of mine in the first place. The Boston blogging community is made up of some of the most kind-hearted, creative, and generous people I know. From the big things, like putting on incredibly informative conferences and hosting events and get-togethers, to the little, like sweet tweets to say hello and offering peer advice and insight when asked, this is a group that clearly supports each other. One that I am so proud and grateful to be a part of.
Psst!This dress is 40% off at LOFT with code LOVEMOM today!
A few weeks ago, looking for a little escape from the crowded city, we hopped in the car and took a drive out to Western Mass. After stops in Amherst and Northampton, we ended up in the sweet little town of Stockbridge and stayed at the most welcoming and historic B&B [1862 Seasons on Main]. It was the nicest, most relaxing weekend I’ve had in ages. I love my city life, but when the chance to get away for some peace + quiet arises, I can rarely turn it down.
We may be more seashells than Southern belles, but still had tons of fun sipping raspberry-infused juleps and celebrating the 139th Kentucky Derby! Did you don derby hats or sombreros during this beautiful spring weekend?
The Derby just seems like the best place to break out those May flowers that April showers brought us, no? This weekend, bust out the floral frocks and celebrate the arrival of spring with an icy mint julep!
This shirt does not sit well on me. But with ruffles, pastel birds, and a peplum frill, it’s still a favorite spring piece of mine. As are these yellow jeans. Which I’m realizing go with about ninety percent of my closet somehow… :)
For a New England girl, I happen to love the Southern tradition of the Kentucky Derby. I mean, give me some seersucker, bow sashes, and floppy hats any day and I’ll be happy, so I guess the Derby is really just an excuse… either way, I plan on betting some mint juleps this Saturday! Will you be celebrating? Or at least dressing for the occasion?
So excited to be recapping such a fun event that I had the pleasure of co-hosting last week! Boston’s LOFT location has just undergone a huge renovation, making it just about the prettiest store in town. On Thursday, Holly and Alana & Amy of Blog Better Boston and I welcomed shoppers to see the beautiful newly-completed shop in the Pru. Couldn’t make it? Take a glimpse around to see it for yourself…!
Tons of fun printed shorts right now! I’m loving these and these especially.
Cardigan, Old Navy + DIYed // Jeans, Forever21 [similar 1; 2] // Crossbody bag, American Eagle [similar] // Wrap Bracelet, KJPxBB // Sneakers, Polo Ralph Lauren [similar 1; 2]
I have been lusting after this Markus Lupfer sequin lobster sweater for far too long. Too long as in, it’s actually one of my first pins on my Pinterest. When I randomly came across these gold sequin anchor patches recently, I realized I could easily make my own version of the cardigan… for approximately $485 less. And I have hardly taken it off since.
Also, when did navy blue and pink begin to go so well together?
