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!

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?
I’m back to posting today because I know we have to at least attempt to return to a sense of normalcy around here. Monday’s events are still first on my mind, and my thoughts and prayers are still with the victims and all affected.
I’m just about done with pants for the year. And tights. Unless they are of a pastel color, pants are out and it’s dresses and skirts with bare legs from here on out. Until they no longer cause extreme goosebumps (seen below), oxfords and lower leg-covering footwear are in.
Kelly green and navy. Sailboats. Anchors. I really am becoming predictable aren’t I?
I just adore this skirt eShakti sent me for spring. Not only did they fit me to my exact measurements, I was also able to customize the skirt length. I’ve never owned a piece of clothing that flatters my waist like this, plus the buttons are the cutest touch. See here, here, and here for other favorites of mine from their spring line!
Disclaimer: I was provided a skirt by eShakti for review; all opinions expressed are one hundred percent my own.
If this isn’t my personal style wrapped up into an outfit, I’m not sure what is. A whimsy printed dress, navy blue + kelly green color combo, pearls, bows, and Lilly? If my life were an occupation, this would be the uniform.
I’m not much of a skier, yet all winter I’ve been itching to get away up North and spend a weekend in a cozy ski town. Bundling up by the fire in a snowy lodge? That is one great think New England winters have to offer as severance pay…!
I’ve been too into the red + green this holiday season [evidence here and here], so I thought I’d mix it up for today’s Holiday Best Friday’s Fancies. I just love this raspberry, navy, and white number from Anthropologie where the festiveness shows through in the darling little reindeer printed on it. Considering snagging it when it hits sale for next year’s holiday soirees…!
Last Saturday may or may not have been the most perfect fall day in Boston. One of those days when you curse the sun for setting so early, and you have no shame prancing around in a tulle skirt with pearl details out of pure happiness– in this case, one that is attached to an adorable navy sweater that forms to make the most perfect little dress. I found this little gem at Sincerely Sweet Boutique– an online retailer based out of Orange County, CA with an endless supply of feminine, vintage-inspired, and downright sweet fashions and accessories. I also snagged this Peter Pan statement collar and cannot wait to pair it with a number of chunky knits this winter!
There is something so perfectly autumnal about cozying up around a big bonfire with hot chocolate and s’mores. My friends used to treck out to the quiet suburban areas of Cambridge from downtown Boston numerous times a year for these, but there is no better time to host them than fall.
