Before we get down the nitty gritty of design and all sorts of decorating goodness I have to share these two upcoming events in the Boston area (actually, in the Chestnut Hill area- my new stomping grounds). The first is the opening party for J. McLaughlin at The Street Chestnut Hill hosted my yours truly and my better half, Andrew, as well. November 21st. Bring you fellas and come party with us:
A portion of proceeds from he night’s sales will be donated to the AMAZING Animal Rescue League , a foundation near and dear to my heart. They do such amazing work and I really want to make sure our donation is substantial.
PLUS you’ll get the chance to see Andrew rockin’ his new “Christmas pants“! I mean, come on, you HAVE to come now.
I also will be clutching onto this with my life because I love it. RSVP to the address above in the invite!
Also, next weekend there is an awesome event at Bloomingdale’s at the Chestnut Hill Mall, at which there is ALL sorts of fabulousness going down including a Two Penny Blue trunk show. If you’ve been dying to see the jackets in person, this is your chance to see them and try one on. The fall collection was just released so there are some new goodies to see too (like this leather collar number that rocks my world). Here are all the details- mimosas, discounts and a gift bag- plus it benefits an AMAZING charity!
BUY TICKETS HERE! I’ll be there for the latter part of it at the Two Penny Blue table so come say hi.
So many fun events coming up for the holiday season- I hope I’ll get to meet a bunch of you at one!

It’s coat weather officially, and I have to admit- I have a slight coat addiction. Up here in Boston it’s the only fashion statement you make for months on end- most people don’t even get to see what you’re actually wearing some days! So you have to have a good selection of stylish but warm outerwear. I just picked up a military green parka with a fur trimmed hood and I have to say, I LOVE IT. Last winter every girl on the NYC street had one and so I finally joined in and it’s been my fave coat of the season. Here are a few other styles you should have in your closet as we prep for the cold weather!
P.S. Note that J.Crew is still 25% off your purchase of $150+ until the end of the day, Loft is 50% off EVERYTHING full price and The Dreslyn is 25% your purchase too (this coat slays me.) See the expanded picks for coats from these vendors in the Shop the Post link at the bottom!

I about keeled over when I saw this little living room/entry set up A House in the Hills just installed in her home. That. mirror. is. everything.
Ok, I will stop cracking myself up now. But for serious, let’s talk about this. I love the floating shelf with storage that she sketched up and had her carpenter build. It’s fantastic and was only $350. The mirror, which I assumed was some vintage marvel, is actually from Restoration Hardware (P.S. here’s another big round mirror I am obsessed with)! Since that is her front door right there it helps define an “entry” area without taking up too much room. Genius.
But let’s back up again and discuss the fact that she made a leather sectional look super chic. The clean lines and bench seat help a lot, so if you’re looking for one take a cue from this. Her fab pillows are from Amber Interiors and help funk things up. All in all, I am loving this bohemian/modern look!
