BLACK & BLUE & (LOU &) GREY

3 things:

  1. You guys know about Lou & Grey, right? Well, you know how I work at Loft? Lou & Grey is the lounge line for Ann Inc, and we carry it at Loft. I could honestly live in every single piece of the collection. I wish it was all in my closet. 
  2. This half top knot is definitely my new thing. I've been wearing my hair like this a lot. 
  3. I just want to be able to wear my shorts and rompers without tights so baaaaaaaad.

HANDMADE WARDROBE // SUPER WIDE LEG

My sewing game has been lacking lately. I have piles and piles of new fabric, and I even have a whole bunch of projects planned out and ready. But reality is, come Fall, a lot of those projects will probably still be sitting in that basket.

But hey, even if I never ever even get to the others, I did manage to make a super wide leg purple plaid jumpsuit. And it's abso-freakin-lutely fabulous.

COSTA RICA, I'M IN LOVE (PART 1)

If you've never been to Costa Rica, you should go. Add it to your bucket list. It is a ridiculously gorgeous place. And if you do go, make sure you spend some time in the Rio Celeste area. Because, you see, this river.... this river is THAT blue. That bright turquoise blue is real life, not photoshop. And it is completely mesmerizing. So Boo and I spent our 4 days of vacation staring at this water and pretending we were in some far away fairytale land. And I already wanna go back and do it all over again.

DOUBLE TROUBLE

My latest shopping obsession has been matching sets, like this mini windowpaned Lou & Grey pair. Loft and Lou & Grey has been making so many of these, and I can't help but snatch them all up. Double the fun, double the wardrobe options!

P.S - I was featured in the Boston Globe's Sunday Instagram column over the weekend! You can see the article here :)

ICE QUEEN

Doesn't it look like I'm sitting in front of some fake background? I swear you guys, this was real life. But being there in person was, in fact, UNREAL. So ridiculously beautiful. And a total Elsa moment. 

I've been wanting to visit one of the Ice Castles locations since we missed our chance last year. So I made sure we didn't miss it this year, and we drove the couple hours up to New Hampshire on a random Wednesday evening. You know what? Other than the crazy crowds of people, it was every bit as magical as I expected. Seriously magical. We stuck around until after dark to see it all lit up, too. And as cool as it was, I much preferred it in the daylight. I mean, just look at those photos! 

P.S - If you are ever in Lincoln, NH, stop at Gypsy Cafe and get the grilled cheese fondue. You won't regret it.

THINK SPRING

Hey look! An outfit post! It's been a while, huh? I gave up on the idea of taking outfit photos after the second snow storm (or was it the third? fourth? I dunno, I lost track). But it only takes one balmy 35 degree day to make it feel like spring around here. So I broke out the celebratory polka dots for the occasion :)
