NYFW 2015 (& other NYC things.)

I’m not sure there’s anything better than a weekend with friends, homemade taco nights and visiting one of your favorite cold brew destinations in Brooklyn. And that’s just the start of my recent weekend adventure to NYC.

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!

Pin-spiration: Boston Style Bloggers

Recently I took a quiz inquiring about my sources of inspiration. Given the options, I realized that some of the best moments of style envy and creative sparks come from none other than my fellow Boston-area bloggers. Lucky for you, these ladies have some great Pinterest boards so you can get to know them and what they love too.

Things are about to get Pinterest-ing.

Monday Must Haves: Spring Trends 2015

As of Friday, March 20th, 2015, we can officially say that spring is here. No one is more excited than me, except maybe everyone else in Boston who has enured a record season of 108.6″ of snow this year. With spring comes spring cleaning and undoubtedly a clean sweep of your wardrobe. For twenty-somethings this often means updating and upgrading pieces you’ve held on to from college (or earlier) to dress like the chic and sophisticated go-getter that you are.

These runway trends are ready-to-wear.

Lou & Grey Spring Shopping Party

It’s a little over two weeks until the official start of spring but the season has been in full swing since the latest collection landed at the sister store to Ann Inc.’s LOFT. If you haven’t met Lou & Grey, it’s the style secret  you’ve been waiting for and on Sunday I had the chance to meet and greet with some of the stylists at my local store.

“Tell Yourself You Love It”

It’s been a crazy week but if there was ever an expression I needed to hear as my leg muscles threatened to give way mid-plié, this was it. After all, barre isn’t just for the fitness fanatic or the well-conditioned dancer, it’s for anyone looking for variety and a full body workout. I knew what I was getting myself into but my experience at FlyBarre recently was much more than your average visit to the studio.

I promise you that the workout you get is as fantastic as this hat I received after my class.
