Highland Light + Coastguard Beach

Truro Lighthouse

You know those winter days when the sun finally comes out after weeks of hibernation and the way it reflects off the snow is just blinding? Yeah. Had one of those this past weekend when we took a day jaunt down the Cape. In between wedding errands, we attempted to soak up some of that luscious Vitamin D, visiting Truro’s Highland Light (#obv) and Coastguard Beach.

Highland Light is the oldest AND tallest lighthouse on the Cape. Its grounds and view are so picturesque and quintessential Cape Cod that it hurts. BF and I are going to have a few days to hang in the area post-wedding, so I’m hoping to drag him on a tour once it opens for the season…!

Cape Cod Off Season

The boyfiancé and I have this thing for visiting popular seasonal locales in the off-season. An island in the winter, a famous-for-foliage town in the heat of summer. It’s so fun to see these areas without all the crowds of tourists, not to mention without all the jacked-up prices.

We headed over the bridge to the Cape to run some quick wedding errands (two months!!) this weekend, and had the best day strolling the quiet towns.

Cape Cod in the WInter

One of the best things to do in these seasonal towns? Support the businesses that do stay open all year… they are hungry for customers, and most will offer exceptional deals and sales!

Browse an overwhelming collection of used books at Yellow Umbrella Books in Chatham.

Lobster roll at The Impudent Oyster.

Drive up to Coastguard Beach (and dog-watch… they’re the only ones out there!)

Treasure hunt at Bob’s Back Antiques.

Tasty treats + hot soups and sandwiches at Cottage Street Bakery (plus the cutest vintage decor!).

What do you find yourself doing in summer towns during the winter?

Lavender Brown

Lavender Winter Coat

I took a bit of my own advice and justified buying a new coat for this never-ending winter, but in a hue that would make these days feel just a bitttt brighter. I still can’t actually wear anything but seriously weather-proof boots outside, and the poor Beans have taken such a beating that maybe some cheery footwear will be my next investment…

Sequins On Weekdays

Gold Sequin Leggings

Thanks to this never-ending mess that is February in New England, I’ve worked from home more in the last four weeks than I have in the last four years! While I definitively did not get out of pajamas the first few times, I eventually started having fun with the opportunity. The almost-mister snapped these silly photos of one particularly fun style-at-home day…

Add Some Color to Your Coat

Let’s face it Northerners: The groundhog saw his shadow, and then some. Winter doesn’t seem to be headed out the door anytime soon, so we might as well keep dressing for it. Now love me some classic black, navy, and camel, but I’m getting seriously sick of these dark colors every day. I’ve been on the hunt for some cheery-hued jackets and coats to make this endless season a little more bearable!

Do you usually switch out your coats after the holidays, or suck it up until you can ditch outerwear all together?

Black & Blue & White All Over

London Fog Trench Coat

If you live anywhere within the continental US, you’ve probably heard snippets about the Frozen-like conditions New England has been experiencing this month. So here you have it folks, a real live look at what Elsa has thrusted upon us this February! These photos were snapped during a brief break from the overlapping storms… a balmy 24 hours without any snow, in which I traded the parka for my favorite lined trench

Dressed Like a Daydream

Taylor Swift Elie Saab Teal Dress


By now you’re all probably tired of seeing Grammys Red Carpet photos [#solastweek], but in typical fan-girl fashion, I can’t stop thinking about Taylor Swift’s ombre Elie Saab number, plus the striking jewel-toned combo of teal + purple. I know we don’t normally cover celebrity fashion here, but this one deserves a moment…

How to get Taylor Swift's Grammys 2015 Look

teal dresses:: one | two | three | four
berry heels:: one | two | three | four

Also love this peplum number for a more office-appropriate look– just add a berry blazer!
