Back to Basics

During the cold winter months I can be a major homebody. I don’t want to go out and I certainly don’t want to get dressed up. Really if I could sit at home in sweat pants and hibernate like a bear I would.

Finding cute winter outfits has always been a challenge. So it was time to get back to basics. You can never go wrong with a little black and white and a good pair of leather boots.Processed with VSCO with a1 preset

My black pants are from HM, I never really shop there anymore because their sizing is so off! But everyone should have a good pair of black pants, I like these ones from J.Crew or these ones from Banana Republic. I tossed on a simple long sleeve black T-shirt I got at Primark, my go to place for basics. To add a little dimension to the look I added this vineyard vines open waterfall sweater, it added just enough to make the outfit fun. Mine is from last year, but they just put out this new sweater that I am obsessed with! I tossed on my favorite pair of Tory Burch boots and I was good to go!

I accessorize with my new Crab & Cleek tote and a fun pair of Primark earrings. This outfit is super simple and easy to pull together even when it’s cold, snowing and all around gross out! What is your go to outfit in the winter?

Secret Garden 

Boston is full of hidden gems, that’s one of the many reasons I love this city! Recently I have been looking for out door places that I can go and relax. Don’t get me wrong I love the Common and the Public Gardens but they’re both always so run down with tourists. I wanted some where quiet and relaxing with not as many people. I stumbled upon the Emerald Necklace Conservancy a organization of parks in Boston. I went and visited the Kelleher Rose Garden this weekend and it was beautiful! The roses aren’t even in full bloom yet but the lush oasis tucked away in the Back Bay is just the pick me up I needed! There are 8 parks that make up the Conservancy and they are all worth a visit. Definitely take the time to visit this summer!  I love this dress from Primark! If you haven’t been to the downtown crossing location you should absolutely go! My belt is super old from J.Crew, it was actuLly one of this first things I ever bought from J.Crew! I stole these wedges from my older sister, the best place to shop is someone else’s closet!
