I feel like I’m recovering from the holidays all over again — after TWO snow days (thanks, Juno) — and plenty of eating, couch-lounging and movie-watching. As much as I hate Boston winters, snow days are always magical (and still manage to make me giddy). Anyways, today’s post looks totally out of place, since I shot these photos a week ago — when there wasn’t a speck of snow on the ground and I’m wearing a skirt (whaaaat?!) like a crazy person. My fiancé and I found this cool mural on the Northeastern campus where he takes MBA classes, and I loved how bold and graphic it is — especially in contrast to the bleak gray winter sky. Although Boston is full of beautiful and historic buildings and quaint streets, my biggest complaint (as a blogger) is a lack of brightly colored walls and buildings. Sounds weird, but I’m always excited when I find one. Luckily, I just so happened to be wearing a very neutral outfit, so there was no clashing with the background. Mostly, I wanted to show off my killer J.Crew glitter pumps (check out the insane black and gold striped heels!) with a simple outfit as the foundation.

PS pretty much everything I’m wearing is now on sale — shop the pieces below!

Happy Friday! Woohoo! Just a quick little post today with a casual vacation outfit (I know it’s not exactly relevant, but I promise I’ll get back to posting winter outfits soon…). I love this bright and bold J.Crew hibiscus print (still available as a bikini or swimsuit) – in the perfect shade of electric coral. Paired with textured lace shorts and barely any accessories, this vacation combo is about as easy as it gets.

Have a lovely weekend!

Outfit details:

Top: J.Crew // Shorts: Ark & Co scalloped lace shorts (see below for more like these) // Bag: Loeffler Randall mini agenda crossbody (on sale) // Sandals: J.Crew (heeled version here) //

Looking back at these beach photos makes my heart ache a little (especially since I’m writing this on my sofa while wrapped in a faux fur throw and wearing a flannel pajama set…). Sigh. Anyways, during our vacation in Costa Rica, I had a chance to try out a bright and bold bikini from Aussie swimwear brand Triangl. After months of admiring their ridiculously gorgeous Instagram feed and the collection of stylish and sleek suits featured – I was excited to pick one out for myself. I decided on The Milly (one of their most popular styles) in an electric blue called “Santa Rosa Splash” and it arrived just in time for my vacation.

On multiple occasions during our trip, we got a little adventurous and hiked over some crazy rock formations to find hidden white sand beaches. Luckily, these suits stay in place (no riding up or shifting around on your bum) and they don’t get clingy or baggy when wet. Perfect for the rare occasion when you aren’t just lounging in the sand. Since Triangl bikinis are made from neoprene, they boast the same benefits as wetsuits: they’re structured, quick-drying and fit like a second skin – all reasons why this became my go-to suit in Costa Rica. Plus, you can’t beat the ultra-flattering cut and sleek black piping! I even pretended like the neoprene automatically granted surfing skills, too. If you’re new to Triangl, check out their collection of bikini sets (I’ve got my eye on this one and this one) and try one out for yourself.
