Are You Ready? Because #WinterIsComing!

Original Photograph via Pinterest; Edited by Bostonista

It's no secret that I'm not a cold weather type of girl. I'm all about being warm and cozy! When it comes to winter, I tend to want to hibernate from Christmas to March. But this year I'm a little more content. There is something magic about New England in late autumn. I love taking Daisy for a walk after dinner in this crisp air, bundled up with thick mittens and my hat pulled down over my ears. You can almost smell the snow in the air.

Afterwards, there is absolutely nothing better than snuggling up with some of my favorite books and a mug of hot chocolate before calling it a night. I love waking up early to enjoy a mug of coffee and to soak up as much winter light as possible. Of course, one of the best things about being so covered up during the day is knowing that you have something beautiful and skimpy on underneath. It makes me carry myself so much differently when I have sexy little things hidden under my cozy layers!

That's why I was so excited to partner up with Adore Me, an online lingerie brand that makes luxury accessible. The sets are pretty and fit so well that I love just lounging around my apartment in them and some thigh highs! Is that weird?

H&M Cares Holiday Initiative & Gift Guide!

I love the holidays but it's easy to get caught up in bustle and forget to count my blessings. So every holiday season, I try to find new ways to give back to the world.  This year, H&M is making it a little bit easier with their CARE gift labels. For every set of labels sold, H&M's Conscious Foundation will donate double the sales price to CARE International- an organization that fights global poverty by empowering women through education and business opportunities!

Before you pop over to the mall for these tags, check out my H&M gift guide below for thoughtful, little presents for everyone on your list!

For The Hostess: The holidays mean a lot of holiday parties! Please, don't ever turn up empty-handed! Pair this Cookie Cutter 3-Pack with a mason jar of ready to bake cookie dough! It's thoughtful and sweet without breaking the bank (especially if you DIY cookie dough) so you never have to scramble for a cheap bottle of wine!

Keep Calm & Rock Some Leather!

Boston Fashion, Boston Fashion Blog, 424 Fifth, Affordable Leather Jacket, How To Wear a Midi Skirt, Stoker Ray Bans, Outfits, Fall 2014 Outfit Ideas, Best Infinity Scarf
Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to help one of my favorite brands, 424 Fifth, with a shopping event that raised money for local charities along with fellow bloggers City Tonic, Mon Petit Chou Chou, and Allie Wears. It was a great night showing off 424 Fifth's stunning fall collection! 

I practically squealed in delight when I saw their burnout style Patterned Wool Skirt. See the black portions of the print? It's actually a mesh-like weave that gives the midi-skirt a semi-sheer look on close inspection. It's got a slight fit and flare shape that is endlessly flattering even if you don't normally wear a midi-length! 

But my favorite piece is 424 Fifth's Embossed Leather Moto Jacket. The detailing on the sleeves are amazing, the leather is genuine Eco turtle lambskin that feels like butter and it's warm enough for a cold late autumn day. Plus, it's actually an affordable, quality leather jacket at under $400! Like my Clubmasters obsession, you should probably get used to seeing this jacket because I'm wearing it with literally everything from now on! 

Missed the event? You can catch up with all the fun on Instagram and see how Boston's other favorite bloggers styled their favorite 424 pieces too!
