Holiday Shopping Guide

Two words: Tartan Everything! I love dressing for the holidays, the rest of winter in New England can be pretty depressing so I take full advantage of the bright, colorful, fun outfits that come out every holiday. This year I picked out a few favorites that I wanted to share with you all.

1.Sail to Sable Tunic Top: this tunic is perfect for all your holiday occasions. It can be dressed up or down, the velvet color adds a little extra something. It is also super comfy and the long sleeves keep it appropriate for when the weather gets cold and snowy.  Limited stock in my Red Tunic but the is also available in the Navy Plaid version! 5D2246B3-DFA6-413D-A87D-695DA63441EF

2.Vineyard Vines Holiday Plaid Dress: I love the bell sleeve on this dress. A basic shift it is flattering on many different body shapes, and the plaid is holiday perfection! VV did a similar version on this dress in a Black Watch Plaid a couple of years ago that I was obsessed with! It even comes in a “Mommy and Me” version if you’re looking to match.

3.Cozy Fairisle Sweater from VV: I am constantly looking for holiday wear that I can keep wearing January-February. This sweater is just that, a cashmere blend that is super soft. 729BB4CE-B4BA-4410-9ABA-DE5AB6E4709E

4. J.Crew Velvet Jumpsuit: I have to say it has taken me a while to come around to the Jumpsuit trend, but I’m finally here and I am loving it. This one is so classic, perfect for any holiday party you have this season. Screen Shot 2019-11-18 at 4.23.29 PM.png

5. Plaid Ponte Pants from VV: First things first, Ponte pants are ridiculously comfortable! Plus these are plaid and have an adorable bow on the front? I told myself I would not buy yet another pair of plaid pants this year, but that is so not happening because I NEED these in my life!

My go to Mule this Fall

Mules have been extremely popular in the last year! I personal love the trend, they’re comfortable, can be dressed up or down, and there are some seriously cute styles out there!

This season I have been living in my By Paige Needlepoint Mules! I got the mini leopard print pattern, which was so perfect for fall! They came with me to Vermont, got worn almost everyday at the office, and went with all my favorite fall outfits. I had a pair of By Paige loafers I wore over the summer and I was so impressed by the quality and comfort. Of course I knew I had to circled back when I was looking for the perfect Fall mules.

You can style mules with just about anything, for warmer days they go great with dresses and skirts but now that the weather has turned I’m pairing them with jeans almost every day. I have gotten so many compliments on the leopard print. Definitely grab a pair of By Paige mules before Fall is over!

Friday Finds

This week was a sprint, a marathon, all tied up into one! Was very busy with work and packing but I feel like I got so much accomplished! Real talk it was hard when I made the choice to leave my job in politics, I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, this huge part of my life was all of a sudden over. I spent months applying, interviewing, researching trying to figure out what was the right fit for me. Now I’m working for myself as a freelancer and I’m loving it, I get to work with so many amazing clients, invest in my personal growth, and create amazing content! It’s hard work, and I’m often very tired, but it’s worth it and I am so grateful for this opportunity and I am full steam ahead to Fall!

On that note, I have been nonstop shopping for Fall! This week’s Friday Finds include some great transition pieces!

1. Sail to Sable Sweater $128

2. J.Crew Dress $118

3. Sail to Sable Dress $268

Hydrangea Heaven

My favorite flowers without a doubt are hydrangeas! I love the blue and purple shades that bloom all over the cape and islands in the summer. I especially love that they match my new Lilly Pulitzer romper!

Nantucket is so beautiful this time of year, between all the sea roses covering Sconset the sea salt filled air, and hydrangeas everywhere! If you only have one weekend to get away this summer I would highly recommend Nantucket. It is my favorite destination!

My romper is from Lilly, I love a Karlie Romper, it’s really light and airy, so even though it is long sleeve you won’t be too hot!
