Remember November

I feel like November is always a good time to look back on the year and reflect. My birthday is November 16th so I’m one year older this month, it is also right before we all get caught up in the craziness of the holidays. This year November is going to be a busy month for me but I’m very excited.

I’ve been feeling a little stressed about work and school lately. There is just so much going on and I’m really looking forward to taking sometime for myself this month. I’ll be doing some traveling and celebrating my birthday, what does everyone else do to relax?

While October often gets credit as “peak foliage” month this year the weather has been very warm so the leaves in Boston and southern New England are peaking right now. I love strolling through the public gardens on the last few warm days enjoying the leaves as they change. 

Happy November!

Snow Day Snow Play 

One of the best parts about living in the city verse suburbs is NO SHOVELING!! When you wake up in the morning the freshly fallen snow holds only possibilities not responsibilities. I don’t own a car (T and Uber all the way) so I don’t need to worry about cleaning off a car saving a spot shoving the driveway. It means that after a snowstorm like we had yesterday I get to go explore our beautiful city all covered in white. Nothing is really more picturesque than the Public Gardens covered in a fresh blanket of snow. I tossed on my Bean boots, my favorite Northface hat and my new J.Crew coat and headed out to play in the snow. 

Something about the snow just makes me feel like a kid again. You can run, and play and everyone else is doing the same regardless of age. I’m sure by February I will be completely over the snow and be whining about how bad I wish it was summer but it this moment let’s just enjoy winter. If it is going to be this cold out we might as well have a beautiful play ground!

J.Crew Factory Sale

I have always been a fan of J.Crew Factory, I find that ‘preppy’ brands can cost big dollars! J.Crew Factory allows you to get the preppy look without emptying your piggy bank, when I was in high school it was my go to place to shop and is still one of my favorites! I’ve heard people complain that the quality isn’t as good as J.Crew retail, as someone who owns a lot from both branches of J.Crew I can say I have never had an issue with anything I bought at Factory. Is the quality as good as J.Crew? No but it’s still good and it’s half the price, you get what you pay for people!

In all the post-Holiday madness it is had to keep up with all the sales and after spending so much on gifts for others your bank account may be hurting a little. Which is why you can’t afford to miss this sale! Use the code WINTERFUN and get an additional 50% off clearance! Let me say that one more time, go to the clearance section, look at that already marked down price and then take an addition 50% off! There is some great finds in the clearance section right now I linked a few below! I got two new skirts that will be perfect to wear in the office this winter. I think I might go back and get a couple more things tonight. This sale is online only and is going on till January 8th while supply lasts so get on it!

These Boots are Made for Walkin’

So my feet are currently covered in Band-Aids. I love Autumn, I love boot season and sweat weather. But the end of summer means that our feet are no longer free in flip flops, they get pushed into our adorable new boots. And as any girl knows there is a breaking in period. I have been breaking in a new pair of booties and today my feet hurt so bad I wanted to get an uber to take me the 10 minute walk home. We all sacrifice for fashion, and once they are broken in we can wear our boots all day every day till its time to put the sandals back on. So here are my top boots of the season I’ve already asked for one of these pairs for my birthday!
