the Sweater Vest

November 25, 2015

Debuting my new hair in this post...  Though its a bit difficult to tell since it was very windy.  I had a really exciting opportunity this past weekend to have my hair cut with Living Proof at one of their cutting and styling seminars.  It was at no cost to me, plus they gifted me a swag bag just for participating.  (Their PHD dry shampoo is amazing!)  It was an opportunity I found out about through the Boston Bloggers Network.  Plus, I made some new blogger friends so double score.  More hair shots to come later.  Wishing you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I'm sharing another way I styled this green cape/poncho (see first post here).  When I first saw this cape online during the nordstrom anniversary sale, I debated purchasing the black option, instead of green.  I took a risk, bought the green and I'm glad I did.  The olive/green color goes with more than I expected, especially this time of year.  I've been throwing it on over really anything - yesterday a chunky sweater, this past weekend over a long sleeve tee while out running errands.  I love that it can be styled casually and dressed up, I'm thinking with some wide leg trousers...  This won't be the last time you'll be seeing this baby, that's for sure.

I'm not sure if I'll have time to squeeze in another post between now and thursday, so Happy Thanksgiving!  I'm thankful for this blog (my creative and stylish outlet) and of course, you - my followers!  Thank you for your support!  Speaking of Thanksgiving... What's everyone wearing?  I'm struggling to pick something out, though I might just end up wearing this poncho to hide the food gut!

Work It Out

November 19, 2015


Today's post is a quick one.  I wanted to share this work-ready look.  There are endless possibilities with this cape blazer (or is it blazer cape..?).  I'm looking forward to wearing this baby during the Holiday season.  It would be perfect over a sequin dress or with a white wide-leg jumpsuit...

the Bar(cart) is open

November 13, 2015
I hosted my first soiree at my new condo the other night.  To be honest, I was a bit nervous.  I've never entertained entirely on my own.  I've only ever been an assistant.  I'm extremely lucky to be my mother's daughter - she has exquisite taste and is always an excellent hostess, right down to her cocktail napkins.  I learn more and more from her everyday.

My sister, mom and I are addicted to HomeGoods - we should have bumper stickers made: "WILL DRIVE FOR HOMEGOODS".   We especially love it when we spot Kate Spade goodies.  You know those perfect green boxes that you can spy from 30 feet away?

However, the only thing Kate Spade right now on the bar cart is this tall bud vase (currently housing my gold dot straws and decorative branch).  But, my sis just gifted me this set for my collection of glassware that she found at HomeGoods.

Here's a little sneak peek into my new living room.  My color scheme consists of dark, rich navy and cream, with gold and magenta accents.  More to come later...

And finally, here is the before and after of the party bucket.  I used Valspar spray paint.  I intended to buy the gold, but accidentally purchased the rose gold.  I'm pleased with the color nonetheless.  I actually think it matches the bar cart quite nicely.   What do you think?

Hump Day!  These pictures are brought to you from the Beautiful Charlestown Navy Yard.  It's hard to believe we are experiencing 70 degree weather in Novemeber, but hey, I'll take it.

I decided to opt out of my comfort zone with this look.  Instead of pairing this soft pink vest with my go-to black flats, I laced up my red ones and headed out the door with no turning back (inspired by my recent insta).  Pink and red (surprisingly?) compliment each other nicely here.  Though it could be the red brick or colorful fall blooms making the whole picture appealing.  Either way, I'm happy with this look.  What do you think?

Nashoba Valley Winery

I spent Sunday afternoon at the picturesque Nashoba Valley Winery for a wine tasting.  We each tasted 5 wines of our choosing.  After, we purchased 2 bottles of our favorites: Pinot Noir Rose, with the perfect amount of semi-sweetness, and the Renaissance, a full bodied red blend.  Then we headed out to the picnic area to sip, snack and relax.

I opted for this comfy (and warm) cowlneck sweater that I purchased during the Lord & Taylor Friends and Family sale, paired with my go-to booties and most comfortable jeans.  I grabbed my Old Navy blanket scarf while running out the door, and I'm glad I did - as the sun began to hide behind the clouds, the weather got a bit chilly (and windy as evidenced in the picture above & below).

Happy Monday everyone!  Here's to another week, make it a quick one.
