This little bloggity o’ mine turned 4 years old last week. If BF hadn’t asked me to marry him, that means mine + the blog’s relationship would have been the longest I’d ever had. Pause for giggles.
Because I can’t resist a good reflection post, let’s chat about four things around here… where we’ve been and where I hope to take them.
Style // It’s no surprise that I love working with local brands and businesses. This year I was introduced to Cinder + Salt, k.m. hutton, Vineyard Prep, Brittany Lauren Design, Hollis Hayes, and White Mountain. I’ve especially enjoyed working with the ladies of Boutikey— a local company that also supports local boutiques!
But mostly, I hope to continue embracing and sharing the real New England-ness and seasonality of my current and dream wardrobe. Anyone and their mother can start a style blog these days; I’m here because when it’s 6-degrees and snowing out, I want to help inspire you to get dressed in something more than sweatpants. And if you’re going to wear cozy flannel, dangit I want that flannel to have a purpose and be more than a lazy-day staple!
Travel // I’m no Julia Engel [really, someone tells me how her life works?]. Day trips are my thing, and I can’t wait to bring you more of those this summer and fall.
Entertaining // This is new! Now that I’m out of my adorable-but-dinky post-grad apartment, we have begun to entertain more, and I promise to share more bits and pieces of that around here.
Shoes // 32 pairs OOTD’d here over the last year, give or take. I’ve got my party shoes on today to celebrate shell chic’d’s birthday– the latest in the Keds x Kate Spade spring collection! How cute are the ladybug ones too?
