100th Post

Wow, this is my 100th post on Katie From Boston. I started this blog as a way to express myself, I was feeling lost like I was floating aimlessly from day to day. I needed a creative outlet.

Hence the birth of this blog. It is not a particularly exciting or unique story, I know tons of bloggers who started because they needed a creative outlet. But today this blog is much more than a creative outlet to me. It has become a very important part of my life, the opportunities I have had, the friends I have made through blogging! The past 9 months, when I really threw myself into blogging, have been incredible. I promise to keep at it and to keep bringing you the best possible content and to always share my honest opinion.

So you tell me, what content do you want to see for posts 101-200? More travel? More food? Less of anything? What was your favorite post and what are you dying to know? Leaving me your questions, suggestions, comments, and criticisms in the comment section below.

And thank you for tagging along on this journey with me!

Winter Whites

Back in the stricter days of fashion one did not wear white after labor day. Well preppies rejoice because winter whites are in. So don’t put away all your white jeans until Memorial day because you can wear them in the winter. Winter whites is one of my favorite looks for gloomy January, a pair of white velvet pants and a white quarter zip with some plaid pops and you are transformed into an adorable snow bunny. The was such a fun look and one of a New Years Resolutions was to be even more obnoxiously preppy and this look did just that! White on white, plaid button up layered underneath with a plaid vest on top.

Unique Watch Unique Girl

People often accuse ‘preppy’ style of always being the same. But I disagree today I see so many so called ‘preppy’ people taking these classic looks and putting their own unique spin on them. Having an individual style while still thinking of yourself as preppy is absolutely possible, and  encouraged!

That is why I love to accessorize. I love adding unique scarfs, hats, and jewelry to my outfits to give them that extra pop. Anyone who know me will tell you I am a total watch junkie, I am constantly buying new watches, some of them get worn often, some of them get worn once to go with that one outfit, and others get lost in my closet never to be heard from again. Recently I started seeing JORD Wood Watches pop up all over social media, and of course I fell in love. I was so excited to get the opportunity to try this watch out and share my thoughts with all of you!

 First things first: JORD Wood Watches are amazing quality! I was so happy when I first took it out of the packages and felt it. The packaging itself it to die for, engraved wood box so cute!

These watches will go with everything, bundling up for the cold? My JORD watch looked so cute with all my cozy sweaters. And because it is would it won’t feel as cold against your skin as a metal watch wood. I cannot wait to go skiing next month and wear my JORD watch all around the lodge! JORD makes women’s watches and men’s watches meaning there are options whoever that special someone in your life is. Valentines Day is less than a month away people! I don’t know about you but I am terrible at picking out presents for my boyfriend, mike. He is just so hard to shop for. A men’s watch from JORD would be the perfect gift this Valentines Day.
