I've been a fan of LA label, Reformation, for a while now. It's pretty hard not to love a company that knows that being sustainable goes beyond just being green and provides all of it's employees with fair wages and health insurance. Beyond sourcing sustainable and repurposed fabrics everything from the design to manufacturing and beyond is all done in one building. It's pretty awesome.

While most of Reformation's pieces clock in under $600, there are plenty of times that I love something I can't afford as much as I want to support such an amazing company. After all, if you don't have it in your checking account you can't really spend it! That's why I was so excited to hear that they've launched a lower price line (ranging from $28 to $178) called The Obvious Collection because you'll obviously need it all. Most of the pieces are under $100 and basic staples in keeping with Reformation style. I don't know how I've survived this long without Obvious!

Winter Blues & Trying New Things!

Boston, Boston Fashion Blog, How To Braided Crown, Starbucks Copycats, recipe, juice cleanse, Boston Beauty, Boston Beauty Blogger, How To Try New Things, White Chocolate Mocha Recipe, Winter Blues,

I'm not sure if it's the snow or the cold or just my general sense of unease but I'm just not feeling inspired lately. So today I took advantage of being snowed in to to really read some of my favorite blogs (instead of just a quick scan) and poke around the internet for new sources of inspiration. I can be pretty set in my ways so it was nice to find little new things to try this weekend and shake off some winter blues!

Iced White Chocolate Mocha Recipe: This Starbucks copycat turned up in my Pinterest feed this morning and even though it's snowing out, I thought this iced drink looked cozy. Can't you imagine just sitting by the fire with a book and a blanket sipping this sweet delight? Head over to The Grant Life for a step-by-step recipe.

What It's Like To Go On A Juice Cleanse: One of my favorite fellow bloggers, Allyson of Allyson in Wonderland, shared her juice cleanse experience this week. I still don't think I could handle even a two-day cleanse but Ally handled it (and the accompanying caffeine-headaches) like a pro!

Braid Crown How-To: I'm terrible at braiding. It's one girlie pursuit that I just never mastered as a kid. The most I can do is pull my hair to one side and twist it into a messy Elsa-like side-braid. So I was excited when Jacquelyn of Lark & Linen recently decided to do a mini-series of braiding techniques! My favorite so far is this braided crown by Lexington & Co. I still haven't quite got the hang of it but with this step-by-step how-to I'm a lot closer than I was this morning!

What have you been reading/attempting to do this week?

A Beginner's Guide to Ripped Denim

I have to admit that I find it hard to spend money on distressed jeans. The fact that the ripped knees usually cost more than a perfectly perfect pair really irks me. But then Crush started carrying Citizens and all of my co-workers were grabbing a pair of their raw, ripped denim. And then these J. Brand's came in with a little bit of stretch and a slightly cropped ankle....

Needless to say, I fell in love. Paired with towering of nude heels and Amanda Uprichard's wrap blouse I felt powerful and sexy. I might finally be on board with a bit of strategic distress.
