This week I’ve teamed up with Banana Republic to show off some spring style – including more flared denim! I had actually been on the lookout for a pair of white flares, so I was super excited when these showed up on my doorstep. Paired with a sleeveless tweed top in blue, the white denim looks extra crisp and fit for spring (of course, it was a chilly 30-something degrees in Boston when I took these photos, so the look had to be topped with a coat… a bit of a buzzkill).
To make my legs look longer, I wore these jeans with heels – plus, I like seeing a little flash of metallic silver peeking out from under the hem (if you’re looking for flares you can wear with flats, Banana Republic also makes a petite version). Anyways, I’m pretty psyched to have these in my outfit arsenal for spring and I’m sure they’ll be making another appearance… as soon as Boston warms up a little.

Omg, what happened?! It’s March and I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. In my defense, the past few months have been beyond busy at work and I’ve barely had a moment to catch up on blogging. But, I’m finally emerging from a winter style rut and hoping to post a lot more now that spring is on the horizon. I don’t have a ton of exciting news to report, except for our wedding being featured on Style Me Pretty back in January! If anyone needs help with wedding planning (specifically the design aspects), I am happy to help!

Anyways, think of this post as me easing back into blogging… and in flares, nonetheless. Let me just say: I’m so happy that flared denim is back (adios, skinny jeans!). It reminds me of my glory days (middle school) when bellbottoms were HUGE, in every sense of the word. I’m wearing these with my favorite blazer — which is cut much longer and has a slightly oversized, slouchy feel to it (i.e. a “boyfriend blazer”). I definitely prefer this style, instead of a more structured blazer that ends at the hip. It also helps balance the lengthy and fuller silhouette of the jeans. Shop them (on sale) below!

First off… Merry Christmas! I hope you had a happy and relaxing holiday filled with lots of good food and family/friends. Kevin and I had a very quiet Christmas with my parents and brother, which was just what I needed. It was awesome having a few days off too. Next up? New Years Eve!

If you live on the East Coast, you’ve probably been [guiltily] enjoying this recent spell of warm weather like I have (on Christmas day it was warmer in Boston than in California where my in-laws live). I know this is a result of global warming – and we will probably pay for it with another horrific winter this year – but it’s hard not to enjoy it right now. Especially when it means I can comfortably be outside with bare legs and a skirt! The jacket in this post is actually overkill with a chunky turtleneck underneath, but I love the color combination of light gray and dusty pink. It’s one of my all-time favorite pairings and it works especially well you’re working with nice heathered wools and soft textures. I like the oversized sweater and skirt look (it’s one of I’ve been rocking quite a lot recently) – it feels like a good balance between casual and dressy, and it’s super comfortable. And these boots! I love them so much. I’m always a little hesitant when it comes to wearing heeled over-the-knee boots, since they can easily take your outfit into trampy territory. But I think they work beautifully when the rest of the outfit is kept casual and simple. I really like the stretchy suede on these – they’re very similar to the Stuart Weitzman boots, but a little more affordable (I actually got them from Amazon when they were on sale, so keep an eye out on any future deals!).

Anyways, I’ll be back with another post soon! I think one of my goals for 2016 will be to update the blog more frequently and revamp things a little.
