Blazers and Pearls

Not going to lie, I’m getting a little stir crazy with all this snow. While most of the country is well into their spring-time months, Maine is still fighting the good “snowball” fight. Come late March/ early April, my wardrobe starts feeling smaller and smaller. I’ve even found myself buying cute little sundresses that won’t be wearable for at least another month. However, when I start …

Cool Winter Colors

Well, so far winter has surely got the best of me this year. Between the snow and cold, I’ve felt a heck of a lot less motivated lately. However, it could have something to do with the fact that I’ve recently moved! As I’m sure you’re aware, packing up everything you own and moving it to another town takes a lot out of you. Especially when …

Cozy Weekend Away

We’ve arrived at the holiday weekend and I can’t help but reflect on all the wonderful things that have happened this year. I’ve experienced a backpacking trip through Germamy, a roadtrip through Ireland, and many other life-changing surprises. To cap off each year, we always spend a weekend at the Liberty Hotel in Boston. Returning to our old neighborhood of Beacon Hill is one of …

Extra Layers Needed!

I have to say that I’m loving that it’s okay to dress casually again. The older I get the more I just want to feel warm and cozy all the time and it can be a difficult status to achieve. In Maine, we have two variations of the annual fall to winter hand off. Some years it’s full blizzard on day one, but more often than …

Double Trouble with Double Plaid!

By this point, I’m sure you’ve all busted out your favorite Fall layers in an attempt to stay warm. I don’t know when it happened, but it’s so cold now! Most of my cold weather layers from previous years were all stripes, but this year I’m definitely feeling a pull towards plaid. Old Navy has been on point this year with their seasonal plaid styles. Between …

Denim in Dublin

As I’ve mentioned before, my travel style is all about comfort and reusable pieces. If it can’t be worn in multiple outfit combinations then it doesn’t go in my suitcase. Why pack something that you know can only be worn in perfect conditions? I would rather leave that space free for a potential souvenir shopping trip since I find some of my favorite pieces abroad! …

Striped Tee & Classic Vest

When the cooler weather arrives we all rush to the back of our closets for our old favorites. Sometimes all it takes are a few of the classics to help ease us into Fall and once mid-August arrives I start the countdown to scarf weather. I don’t know about you, but I know exactly which items will be making their way back into rotation. I love that …

Old Navy Blanket Scarf

Over the past few years, I’ve really pared down my packing list when I travel. Mostly motivated by my aversion to paying baggage fees and my very real fear of lost luggage, I made the transition from a full size suitcase to a carry-on a few years ago and I’m not going back! I’ve learned quickly that this isn’t the time to make impulse choices …

Autumn Layers

After all those months of Summer and sun, we might not have been ready to say goodbye once September rolled around. Lucky for us, we have this fabulous grace period where we can dive into those layers without fully committing to tights, coats, and gloves. Personally, this is my time of year. When you can wear all your favorite clothes in one outfit and call …
