Sail to Sable by the Shore

Stripes and summer go hand in hand. I can’t even count how many navy and white striped items hang in my closet. But I love this Sail to Sable striped dress, it is perfect for everyday wear and will definitely be making an appearance on the 4th of July.

Me and the girls took a fabulous trip down to Watch Hill Rhode Island last week, we explored the charming little town, visited the Ocean House, and the Watch Hill Light House. The original light house was built in 1745 and after it was destroyed in a storm President Thomas Jefferson signed an order for it to be rebuilt in 1806. One of the things I love about New England is everywhere you go, every site you visit has a history. What you look at may be a restoration, a rebuild, or a redesign. But they always retain their New England charm, they are classics.

Might be why I love this preppy nautical dress, it is a classic. It will never go out of style, I will pull it out of my closet every season happy to see that it has stood the test of time.

Blooms on Comm Ave

Magnolia season is just about over, the flowers are falling and trees are turning green. So glad we had nice weather for the peak since now it’s pretty much all rain. I love a good T-shirt dress, they’re easy to dress up, dress down, you can look like you put in effort without having a super complex outfit. I love this one I got from J.Crew last year it has adorable gingham bell sleeves that make it feel a little extra.

Spring Garden

Well after a small break from blog posts I’m happy to be posting this adorable spring outfit. March is tough in Boston you want to do fun spring content but it is still very much winter outside. Now that it is finally warm out I love strolling through the public gardens. The flowers are all in bloom, the duck boats are up and running and it is finally warm enough to get outside and enjoy!

Love this spring outfit, classic navy and white stripes never gets old. I paired it with an older white vineyard vines skirt, silk scarf, and classic sperry boat shoes.

The Perfect Christmas Eve Outfit

In my family Christmas Eve is a bit more casual. We relax, go out for Chinese food, and just hang out. I still like to dress festive but I go a little more casual. I love these vineyard vines pants, they are super festive and they are now on sale just in time for Christmas! I paired them with a simple grey sweater, this cashmere is so soft and warm! The tartan cuffs on the sleeve are probably my favorite part of the whole outfit. This look is perfect for my friends in the Northeast, the cashmere is so warm and pants are perfect for those freezing nights! Festive yet casual perfection.

I have a few pairs of tartan pants and I love the color on these. They ran a little small so I would size up! Vineyard Vines did such a great job on their holiday line this year! Big thanks to vineyard vines for making sure I looked my best this holiday season, as always all opinions are my own.

My coat is J.Crew, unfortunately it is currently sold out but J.Crew always has a bunch of great coat options, and my shoes are from Talbots!

Black Friday Deals

I am always excited to shop my favorite brands on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. I love splurging on a few holiday pieces I have been eyeing.

1) Vineyard Vines 25% off + Free Shipping Splurge on a cashmere sweater! I am obsessed with this one with the tartan cuffs. If you’ve been eyeing any of the VV pjs I would definitely grab them this weekend. They sell out of some sizes by early December, so don’t wait!

2) J.Crew 40% off

In my opinion J.Crew is always the best deal. They’re doing 40% off with the code TOGETHER. It’s a great chance to stock up on some classics, like this tartan skirt, that you can wear year after year.

3) Duffield Lane 30% off I am in love with all the tweed pieces Duffield Lane did this season. This tweed vest is perfect way to add a little sparkle to your outfits this holiday season. I’m eyeing this Cheers Sweater this weekend.

4) Painted Brick Studio 15% off

Recently I worked with Painted Brick Studio to spruce up my bedroom. It is such a fun idea to either gift yourself or someone special in your life. Pick a room, a style, and answer a few short questions about your personal preferences and Painted Brick Studio will send you a gift box full of adorable decor. Now through December 2nd use the code: MERRY15 for 15% off!

5) Ralph Lauren 40% off on orders of $125+

I think it’s hard to go into Ralph Lauren and not spend at least $125. Ralph Lauren is normally my biggest splurge, I love all the classic sweaters!

I’m a sit at home and shop online type. I hate the mall crowds and you could not pay me to go to the outlets on Black Friday. But if you’re brave enough more power to you! In addition to the above deals be sure to check out your local shops and boutiques, Beacon Hill has so many cute shops I will be checking out the deals may not be as big or flashy but you know exactly where and who your money is going to. Don’t let the deal shopping make you crazy, remember thanksgiving is about being grateful for what you already have. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday, I’ll be spending the day with my family eating lots of mashed potatoes.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
