Pink puffer vest strikes again! Bright pinks like this and cheery blue gingham like this are the only things getting me through this horrid winter (ie. the only days it’s not snowing it’s raining with 40 mph wind instead). I’m looking forward to spring more than I can express in words, so right now I’ll let the vibrant colors and picnic-ready patterns do the talking…!

I know that within my normally preppy style, you all may find that I, at times, have hipster tendencies. This probably stems from my alma mater’s influence (though I was nowhere close to most of my classmates in terms of Urban Outfitters addictions!). Yet I can always appreciate a good pair of oversized black-rimmed glasses, like these from Firmoo.
Firmoo is an online prescription and non-prescription glasses retailer with tons of styles to choose from at seriously I-can’t-believe-it affordable prices. In fact, your first pair can even be free. I adore the pair they sent me (can be found here) and am having fun using them as more of an accessory than a necessity– they’re a little bigger and wilder than my everyday glasses.
Ordering them was way too easy– all you need to do is insert your prescription. My only quibble? They were a little big for me and needed some adjusting, though I blame this more on my own head, not Firmoo!
But really, how many is too many when it comes to glasses? Because I sense I’ll be ordering a few more pairs…
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary pair of glasses to review; all opinions expressed are my own.
Nemo has come and gone. It wasn’t all fun + games but we survived and even got to enjoy some snowy playtime once the blizzard winds died down :) Hope you all stayed safe + warm throughout the storm!

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…!

Despite some breezy winds, it was unseasonably warm last weekend in New England, and that called for a walk around Boston’s waterfront area. As much of a tease as it was, it was definitely a welcome break from the blistery teen temperatures, and certainly put me in the spring mindset!
Last week we talked LBDs, but this week it’s Little White Dresses I have on my mind.
When the weather is warm, I just love slipping into easy breezy little white dresses [see here and here for past instances!]. Until summer hits, many choose to avoid white, though I fully believe LWDs can certainly still work in chillier months. I’ve seen a ton about winter white lately, and I’m a huge advocate for it, especially in dress form. A higher neckline, purer shade of crisp snow white, and wintery details all help with winter LWD’s case. French Connection has an overwhelming supply of women’s dresses, and I’ve pulled a few of my favorites.

And at the same time, it is January. Which means we are in the deepest part of winter and yet the fashion world is busy thinking about way warmer temperatures! So for dreaming of months ahead…
Are you a fan of winter white, or do you prefer to wait until Labor Day?

All I really wanted for Christmas was a puffer vest– to wear by itself in the chilly parts of fall and spring, and to layer underneath fleeces in the bitter winter. I let Santa pick the color though, and couldn’t be more excited about the salmon pink! Just the pop of fun I need to keep me smiling through the freezing months ahead…
