What 2015 Taught Me

As I’m sitting here agonizing over what to say in my return to blogging, I realize that it is only getting harder to hone in one one specific topic or excuse for my inconsistency. The truth is, for the past few weeks, I have been happily living my life, missing summer (like ACTUAL summer), consuming my body weight in holiday treats and reminiscing on the adventures of the past year. I have made more trips to the new Primark location at Downtown Crossing than I am willing to admit, snuggled with everyone’s favorite four-legged sidekick Lucy and logged some serious hours at the ballet studio. I have loved every minute of it but now it’s time to reflect on how each of these memories has culminated into the person I’ve become over the past year.

WEAR I Went: The Fall 2015 Edit

You don’t always appreciate where you are. It’s part of being busy and constantly feeling obligated to be on some sort of schedule. I’m not saying it’s a good thing but its a habit I’m working on breaking. The last several weeks have been a crash course in slowing down and appreciating all the little moments in perfect time for the holidays.

Spring things.

Before I go any further I think I should make it perfectly clear that spring has yet to arrive in Boston. We’ve had a few days that broke sixty degrees but I have yet to put away all of my cashmere. To encourage the sun to come out and play, I’ve rounded up a few things to sip, shop, eat & get inspired by!

The Winter Food Tour | 2015

There comes a time in every self-proclaimed foodie’s life when she stops and realizes that while a picture says a thousand words, there’s nothing quite like a good ol’ review.

I like my Sam Adams, Matzo ball soup & bagel chips just as much as the next girl.

Style Inspiration: GIRLS

I don’t know about you but in this one week break, I’ve kind of missed the crazy antics of Hannah, Jessa, Marnie & Shoshanna. Okay, maybe it’s their wardrobes more than their reenactment of every little twenty-something problem you could ever imagine but I have to admit that it’s sort of a guilty pleasure of mine to watch the show for style inspiration.
