• Week Twelve Coronavirus Hiatus & May Favorites… 2020

    Week Twelve. Things are shifting. Now in this Phase One stage restaurants are offering outside dining, fitness studios are reopening as are stores slowly with restrictions in place. It feels hopeful… I think, as a family, we will continue to hibernate a little longer and dip our toes in the water with caution in the coming weeks. There is still so much unknown about the virus, particularly in children, and it seems that the information changes daily. That said, as the country was starting to reopen last week, there was a happening that is anything but hopeful. The death of a George Floyd. What happened to George Floyd and what…

  • The White Tee Shirt

    Ah, the white tee shirt. Much like a pair of jeans (or denim cutoffs), it can be hard to find a good one. You don’t want it to be see-through, but also don’t want it to be too thick. Slightly slouchy, soft and definitely comfortable; that is what you want! I did a round up of a few white tees that I have and love and also ones that look like they would be great! I just ordered two new white tees from Everlane (#1) and am super impressed with the quality and the fit! I also love #2 from Lululemon. I don’t have this exact Gap tee (#5), but…

  • Easy Cotton Dresses

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I always consider this the kick off of Summer, although this looks quite different for us this year. This will be the first Memorial Day in a very long time I won’t be spending it in RI with family and friends. Bizarre and a real bummer! Regardless, we are still going to make it a fantastic low key weekend here. The kick off of Summer has me thinking more and more about my summer closet (and packing for the big trip to RI) and what I really want to be wearing on those hot Summer days. Cotton. I’ve become pickier about fabrics, and the Summer definitely…

  • Denim Cutoffs…

    Finding the perfect denim cutoffs can be hard. Almost as hard as finding the right pair of jeans… maybe harder? Well, shorts weather is upon us! Especially with Memorial Day weekend here (can you believe that!)…  I have my favorite pair which is #1 on the list, but I rounded up a few more that look like they would be great too!

  • Holiday Fashion: What To Wear To Get Through The Holidays 2019

    Here comes the Holiday rush! Such a fun and busy month ahead… the last thing we want to think about is what to wear! Here are some great looks that will carry you through the Holiday haze! I am clearly feeling green this season!   Running Around All Day: You just want to look put together and feel good for the whole day. These Mother jeans are my FAVORITE and the No.6 clogs are a MUST.

Layered some pretty Haverhill Collection necklaces here, the Charley Horseshoe necklace will bring you luck as you navigate this Holiday season and the Birthstone necklace I wear everyday!

  • The Best Little Knit Blazer Styled 3 Ways

    I purchased this little J Crew knit blazer this Spring and adore it! It seems to go with everything, is light enough that I don’t get hot but it also keeps me warm on chilly days. The original pink that I have is sold out in a few sizes but the camel is a great option and available in sizes xxxs-3x; so I will use that color to style the blazer into three different outfits!

  • Fall Fashion: Leopard

    Leopard is everywhere! And for good reason… it is basically a neutral in my book. A friend and I were just talking about how leopard is THE print for Fall. And good news;  you have so many options out there to add a little or a lot to your look. Even better news is that options seem to come in all price points… I mean just in case you don’t want to really invest in a leopard coat (but there are a few REALLY chic ones!)… but mark my words, leopard print isn’t going anywhere! (And, yes, #17 may be technically a “cheetah print” but who cares!) Find my picks below!…

  • Fall Fashion: Foliage Color Palette

    Thank you so much to everyone who expressed such kind words after this week’s earlier post… it is so appreciated. Now, on a lighter note, because I have to keep the rest of this week light… I love scrolling through a new season’s fashion… Lately I have noticed that there are so many pieces that appeal to me that are the colors of Fall foliage. Not my typical color palette but all the beautiful warm tones make you think of pumpkin picking, apple cider and raking leaves. I love it all paired with denim, navy and ivory! Below find the pieces that I am loving in this foliage color palette!…
