Blanket Statement

Sweater: H&M
Leggings: Target
Scarf: ASOS 
Boots: Alloy (old)
Sunnies: Karen Walker
Bag: Louis Vuitton

I've been trying to get my hands on the perfect massive blanket scarf for weeks and I finally found my neck warming soulmate. This beauty came from ASOS after I spotted it on several fashionistas' blogs and Instas.

On my third unnecessary shopping trip last week, I scooped up this olive sweater and can't wait to style it all winter. Olive and merlot are the two colors I can't stop gravitating toward this season.

These knee highs are quite old and from my favorite secret shoe shopping spot - Alloy. Will need to do some shopping for some more tall boots as winter comes to stay so any feedback would be appreciated!

For now, I'll get back to cocooning myself inside this scarf. I think it's permanently attached to my body now.

Autumn Vibes

Sweater: TJ Maxx
Shirt: TJ Maxx
Jeans: ℅ Vigoss
Shoes: Steve Madden
Sunnies: Ray-ban

Thanksgiving Eve -- the only night it's fun to go out in your hometown and see everyone you've ever known. I need a serious caffeine boost for this.

Today's look is simple fall basics; cable sweater, flannel, and leopard.

I can't get enough of these Vigoss Jeans -- they are super comfortable and the perfect dark hue. Also, this skinny leg is perfect for tucking into boots which is going to come in super handy this season.

This sweater is an oldie but goodie from TJ Maxx a few seasons ago, but I've linked a few similar ones below. I love the contrast of the flannel with the cream color and tying it all together with the leopard "neutral". These bright Ray-bans are great reminder of warm weather so I rely on them to help me survive the cooler New England temps that will last the next…six months.

Where are you headed tonight?!

Turkey Day Fashion

Dress: H&M
Vest: TJ Maxx
Necklace: J. Crew Factory
Clutch: Burberry 
Sunnies: Karen Walker

Welcome to the best work week of the entire year -- only two days standing between me and all the food, friends, vino, and merriment one could ask for. 

I'm going with this merlot skater dress for turkey dinner this year, jazzed up with some faux fur and black tights. I feel it's a good combo of texture and color for these fall festivities. This dress is available at H&M right now for a mere $18 (in stores)!

This gorgeous Burberry clutch (which also becomes a cross-body) was a must-have purchase when I saw it on the Peach app and won it for almost 50% off! This J. Crew statement necklace is my go-to for dressing up any look, I've yet to find an outfit I don't love it with! It's sold out at J. Crew currently, but Bibjewelry has a great dupe!

Vino Inspired

Top: Forever 21
Leggings: Victoria's Secret
Shoes: Aldo
Necklace: J. Crew Factory

Some things I hate: winter, freezing, cold, early darkness. Some things that help me cope: Pinot Noir.

I've been more into red wine than usual lately, probably because I can't drink it with my Invisalign adult braces in so it gives me an excuse to take them out (shhh, don't tell my dentist), but it also helps warm you up a little during these cooler FREEZING days.

Same goes for these Aldo booties with the amazing merlot detail -- warms this look right out by adding just the right seasonal touch of color.

Also, love this top that I scooped up from Forever 21 and these leggings with the fun faux leather knee detail. I got these babies from a big VS sale a few months back, but they have some similar, reasonably priced options available now.

Stripes and Stones May Break My Bones…

Boots: Forever 21
Bag: Aldo (OLD)
Necklace: Bibjewelry

It's hard to compete with the gorgeous foliage in the background, so I kept things simple with a striped tee (with leather accents of course) and my fave black jeans and booties.

I added a little color with a go-to statement necklace and pushed the short sleeve about as far as I can into the season. The best part of these booties is that they have a hidden wedge, so they look flat but they don't cut my short little legs off too much! 

Also - FYI to all the trendy Boston ladies:
Dagne Dover (the designer of this gorgeous bag) will be visiting Lit Boutique on Hanover Street on Saturday for their trunk show (and debut of a new bag!) if you want to stop by!

Fall Details

Sweater: H&M
Tank: Forever 21
Jeans: James Jeans
Booties: Aldo
Sunshades: Rayban
Necklace: Stitchfix

It's been a hot minute since I've shared a look here; I was enjoying some rest and relaxation in the Caribbean last week followed by a little weekend trip to Maine. I'm finally back home -- freezing, snuggling with my pup, and focusing on fall fashion,

This outfit is all about the details - first and foremost this sweater. How awesome is the leather sleeve detail? It gives a simple tank-top-and-jeans look more of an edge. I scooped up these booties at a huge sale at Aldo recently. Unfortunately, I can't find them online but I linked to a few other cute options. My necklace is one of the best treats from a Stitchfix I got a few months back.

Finally, this little clutch was what I like to call a "panic purchase", made when I was rushing to go somewhere and couldn't find a small black bag so I raced to my nearest options to find something (Forever 21, Target, and Charlotte Russe -- Charlotte Russe won). The best is when I still like the item once the panic subsides! Tell me I'm not the only one who does this?!
