Fashion Friday: Baby It’s Cold Outside

December 13th, 2013

No seriously. It’s freezing. I’m all kinds of miserable in frigid temperatures, except for all the great sweaters, boots and jackets I get to wear!!! I just bought two new pairs of winter boots this week (new UGGS are essential in New England), inspired by our incoming snowstorm this weekend.  Here’s a cute outfit that will keep you warm and looking great even when the mercury dips.


1. (love this one too)// 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. (yes it’s crazy expensive but the only thing that keeps my skin hydrated all day!)

This or That III

December 12th, 2013

Another installment of my favorite- This or That- pairing interiors and fashion. Which would you choose?

A buffalo plaid blanket or buffalo plaid coat (I just bought it- SO CUTE- and over 30% off now as is ALL of J.Crew with code GIFTNOW)


Purple, red and a hint of gold in a room or on your neck with this necklace?


A sexy black bedroom or a sexy black romper to sleep in?


A mongolian lamb pillow or jacket (how friggin’ perfect is this shot of Olivia Palermo??)
