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!

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…

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

Pink Pumps

I’ve been having a blast searching for all-white ensembles to wear to various wedding activities this spring, but if you gals know me, you know I need a little color in my wardrobe. I’ve been particularly keen on the idea of dressing up white outfits with bright shoes, and I’ve got pink on my mind this week. Sorry (not sorry) if this is over-kill, but we’ve got lots of options kids::

Heart Eyes

pink + red color combo

Three hundred and fifty five (give or take) days out of the year, I am pretty uninterested in this color combo. But for Valentine season? I’m all in.

And yes, you’re right, I did cheat and pulled out this pink linen skirt about 6 months too early. #YOLO.

Tipsy Tuesday No. 16: Champagne Bowler

Champagne Cocktails Book

I have three weaknesses when it comes to ordering cocktails:: ginger beer, rosemary, and champagne (…not together).

If I spot a French 75 or bellini, game over. I don’t even have to tell you about mimosas at brunch (unless there’s a build-your-own-bloody-mary bar, but another story, another day).

I was on the hunt for a champagne cocktail to make for Valentine’s Day, and we had all of the ingredients for a Champagne Bowler here already, so this turned into a fun little snow-day-happy-hour treat…!

Second maybe only to Christmas, Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. Might have to do with the fact that I was born the day after, but I love a good pink & red celebration. Some sweet things to gift your girls or yourself this year…!
