I have nothing worthy to say about this outfit, except to admit that I’ve been wearing it just a bit too often lately. I’m in the midst of a love affair with this vest [see here//here//here if you've ever wondered if you'll get enough use out of a navy + white striped puffer vest] as well as with anything gold, and I apologize that you’ve all had to witness it.
Happy Wednesday mah luvs! Be safe out there in the snow!
I just love the idea of working golden hues into nontraditional metallic items… I’m definitely a gold jewelry girl for the most part, but gold-dotted pillow? Gold-dipped flatware? Golden boat shoes? Even better!

It is seriously layer weather y’all.
ModCloth asked me to participate in their Uniquely You campaign this week, and to create a look based around their private label collection’s Following Dreams Sweater. As adorable as it is on its own, I know I’d be much cozier layering it with some additional pieces! Enter this adorable BB Dakota jacket and sweet knit scarf.

[ Jack by BB Dakota Take to the Lake Jacket, $65 ]
[ These United States Necklace, $20 ]

How would you style the Following Dreams Sweater, and what pieces are you using to layer this fall?
Speaking of layers, I’m guest posting over at loladee today about surviving winter in Boston! Check it out + let me know your best tips New England gals!

Last month, US Trendy awarded me with the pretty darn fun title of being one of Boston’s 50 Most Fashionable. As if that wasn’t cool enough, they offered to send me some clothes, and–huge shocker– I picked this comfy ship wheel sweatshirt (hey, gotta show off some nautical New England pride right?!).

I have just loved the peter pan collar trend that’s been gaining traction over the last year, but have always been too shy to try it– until I received this dainty little one from Sincerely Sweet Boutique. It was just the right amount of statement and fit easily with this oversized knit, and had a vintage feel without being too in-your-face, or little girl-ish. I also love their Timeless Addendum and Austen Society Lace Trim Vintage Collars– such sweet little touches to add to outfits!

I go through different color-combination crushes often. You may remember it was navy blue + kelly green a few weeks ago, and right now it’s pale pink + gold. I’m thinking that means it’s Nutcracker season and all the ballet-inspired looks are getting to me…!
Wishing everyone a wonderful, safe, and filling Thanksgiving! xx

I feel fortunate to be one of those lucky New England residents who get Columbus Day off from work. I spent this year’s Monday holiday, appropriately yet not intentionally, dressed in rather American colors, walking around a small Massachusetts town and finally having a chance to breathe and appreciate the beauty of early autumn.
I’ve been denying Labor Day’s unavoidable and eminent arrival for a while now. (This is why I don’t do seasonal bucket lists– I never get to quite everything I want to!) But Labor Day Weekend is here and I’m heading home to the beach for the first half of it, so might as well embrace it.
Even though my family has only recently joined me in New England, we would spend every August of my childhood in the very same town they live in now, and one of my most vivid memories is how chilly those summer nights on the water could get there! So as we share Dark & Stormys on the Adirondaks as the sun goes down + the sunset canon goes off, and say goodbye to summer this weekend, this would be my ideal outfit.
