On a daily basis, I try to dress by a certain “live colorfully” motto. Yet even I can’t deny that a black and white ensemble is always classic and chic. A black blazer is a closet staple, and I first got the idea to pair them with white dresses + rainboots from this shot of Reese Witherspoon. The bow headband and tassel purse are my own fun additions :)
New England was blessed with a very mild winter last year, with really our only snowstorm being on Halloween(!). This year though, I’m ready for the snow– bring on the crunch under my boots and the layers of sweaters to stay warm!
One of the absolute best things about being an Emerson College alum is meeting all of the talented and inspiring individuals the network connects you to, both current students and alumni. Last week, I met up with current student Celina Colby, fashion blogger behind Trends & Tolstoy. I considered myself to be pretty involved while in school, but as a sophomore, Celina is already blowing me out of the water. I discovered that in addition to Emerson, we share a love of Nutella lattes, exploring our little city of Boston, and, as you’ll see, pink blazers. We styled our fluorescent duds in pretty opposing ways and had fun battling it out in a photoshoot with Celina’s photographer Jamie Kaplan– to see the full battle, head on over to Trends & Tolstoy today!

A sip of pumpkin spice latte, in accordance with stumbling across this perfectly autumn outfit, finally made me feel like embracing fall. I adore this look by Katie from Running on Happiness… she’s the kind of blogger with such a great eye that it makes me wonder why I even bother! Total outfit crush on her.
Pink and green flats with flamingo appliques on them? I just could not resist. I love the easy-goes-it early summer feel to this outfit… when you can get away with wearing shorts but still need another layer somewhere else! I could happily wear a version of this every night this summer… maybe with this version of the flats next time?

This boyfriend blazer + boyfriend jeans look might be a lot cuter with an actual boyfriend. But until I’ve got J Biebs (or more than likely, his older brother) signing me this, I’ve gotta stick with the girl version knockoffs.

Blazers and sundresses are kind of my new favorite thing. Since I am just done wearing pants [considering it is May and should be averaging 73 degrees instead of 55], I’m forced to stay bundled up on top.
Anyone else struggling with this “spring” weather??
My personal style tends to flip flop a number of ways, but more times than not, I think it can be defined as preppy. So when I saw that Country Club Prep was hosting a Prepped to the Max photo contest, I knew I couldn’t pass up a chance at entering! Would you all be so kind to lend me ten seconds of your time and vote for my entry? :)

I love Boston one million times more when the sun is out. The weekend presented an opportunity too good to pass up, so this sleepy girl left her cave for a sunny walk around the neighborhood and a stop for some cupcakes…
