Bold Prints & Leather Leggings!


Boston Blogger, Boston Fashion, Boston Fashion Blog, Piperlime, MomentsofChic, Pim & Larkin, #MomentsofChic
Two outfit posts in a row? How unlike me!

This week, I teamed up with Piperlime for their #MomentsofChic challenge. They sent each blogger participating in the challenge two pieces that they felt matched our personal styles. It was kind of cool knowing that someone was picking out pieces especially with me in mind but also a little nerve racking- what if they sent me something I absolutely hated?

Luckily, I immediately fell in love with the suede booties from DV by Dolce Vita. I don't normally wear heels during the day but I've been living in these. They go with everything and only start to hurt at the end of the day. Perfection.  

The bold print of the Pim & Larkin shift dress was definitely out of my comfort zone but my styling skills took over and I ended up pinning the dress into a tunic layered over my favorite leather style leggings (can you believe they're from Spanx??) A silver bracelet and bright blue clutch from December Thieves finished off my look for the afternoon. Comfortable chic at it's finest....


It looks like the team at Piperlime knows me pretty well after all!

Powered By Beacon Hill!

Nothing makes me happier than an afternoon on Beacon Hill. For me, Chestnut Street is quintessentially Boston. I think it's the most inspiring spot in the entire city. If I could spend all of my time exploring those tiny alleyways and side streets I would. Of course, walking over all those uneven bricks and cobblestones (as beautiful as they are) does quite a number on your feet! I'm always running late to begin with so I can't be slowed down by uncomfortable shoes. It's why I love Rockport's Total Motion Tall Strap Boots so much because I can practically skip along those old streets for hours without a moment of discomfort! Total Motion technology gives shoes unprecedented flexibility which means they actually move with your feet. Plus, I love the tweed and zipper detailing.

What powers you? Tell Rockport via social media with the tags #PoweredByHeels and #Sweeps for a chance to win an all expenses paid spa trip...in Miami! Make sure to enter by October 31st!

5 Fall Wardrobe Staples

Last night, for the first time in months, I had to pull out an extra blanket to cover my summer quilt. I guess it's time for me to accept that summer is over and embrace the glories of fall! To get in the mood, I thought I'd share my 5 Fall Wardrobe Staples with you all!

Kate Spade, 5 Fall Wardrobe Staples, Fall Wardrobe Staples, Wardrobe Essentials, Fall Essentials, 5 Fall Closet Must Haves, Fall 2014, Wardrobe Must Haves, Fall Must Haves

1. Rails Plaid Button Downs
LA label, Rails, has seriously blown up this past summer. Pick up any recent issue of US Weekly or People and you'll see a celebrity or three in their plaid button downs! I didn't really understand the cult following until I tried one on for myself (they're available in Boston at Crush, natch!) Rails shirts are fitted just enough to feel polished; They're relaxed without being baggy and impossibly soft. Made from 100% rayon, they actually feel like a Supima cotton/silk blend.

2. Mixed Material Riding Boots
Rockport, one of my favorite local brands, recently sent me their Total Motion 75mm 2 Strap Tall Boots so I could experience their new comfort technology. Total Motion incorporates Adidas' Adiprene that absorbs shock in the heel, as well as thermoplastic polyurethane plate that ensures foot stability. High tech, right? Even with almost three inch heels, I can run around in them all day and still be comfortable. More importantly, they look great! The tweed panels allow the boots to stretch but also looks sophisticated while the buckles and zippers give a bit of edge. I have a feeling they will be my go-to boots once fall really gets going.

3. Wide Brimmed Hat
I don't know about you but sometimes I get tired of a ponytail on a bad hair day. A wide brimmed hat is a chic alternative plus it helps keep you warm when the breeze starts bustling! I love the gold plated wire detail on this navy Janessa Leone.

4. Leather Detail Leggings
My favorite piece this fall? BCBG's Shelby Pant.
Okay, by now it's pretty clear that leather leggings (real or faux) are a wardrobe staple no matter the season. I'm a big fan of ponte styles with leather panels right now.  They are just as versatile as your everyday jeans but they feel far more sophisticated for night.

5. Leather Bucket Bags
I know bucket style bags have been "in" for a while now since Alexander Wang debuted his "Diego" style a few years ago but until recently I just wasn't feeling it. They didn't seem practical to me. During Back Bay Night Out a few weeks back, I was able to visit Saturday (the new little sister line to Kate Spade New York) at Copley and tested out the Saturday Grommet Bucket Bag. It was easily able to hold all my essentials and was comfortable to carry on my shoulder. It's also closer to my price range at $225.
