I don't know about you, but I was on one very emotional Oscars roller coaster last night! Patricia Arquette, John Legend and Common, and Graham Moore gave extraordinarily moving acceptance speeches. Neil Patrick Harris made me LOL a lot. One winner wore a very ball-sy dress. Chris Pine cried. Lady Gaga surprised us all with an amazing Sound of Music tribute. The Julie Andrews came out on stage after it. (I preceded to freak out.) And finally, my boyfriend and I tallied up the ballot prediction scores and I lost by a landslide. Halfway through the show I also found this very important Tumblr, Oscars Hoagies. I would segue into my favorites from the red carpet, but then we'd be here all day. So, moving on...

Well you know what they say: if you can’t beat’em, join’em! That’s basically become my mantra for this insane New England winter we’re having. A few weekends ago my dear blogger bud Kayte, and I ventured into the cold with photographer Brad Bahner to capture the snowy scenery at the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain, a neighborhood of Boston. Not gonna lie, it was crazy cold, but the untouched snow was absolutely breathtaking; the frozen appendages were totally worth it.

Bohemian Valentine's Day

The Hallmark holiday of the year is upon us! I'm not a huge Valentine's Day celebrator because 1.) I think it's cheesy and 2.) my boyfriend and I celebrate our anniversary approximately one week later. I'd much rather go out to dinner on a random evening then try to fend off the love puppies for a reservation on the 14th. I'll drink my champagne and eat my chocolate-covered strawberries on the couch, instead. One thing I do love about V-day, is that you don't need a significant other to celebrate. Two words: Galentine's Day. I always love seeing cute ways to celebrate with friends and amazing giveaways like the one Lulu's is hosting right now. Free dresses for a year for me and my BFFL? Sign me up! But, if you are lucky enough to have someone to celebrate with this year, I highly recommend giving them one of these celebrity Valentine's Day cards. Numbers two, four and five are my faves.

Although I don't love this holiday, I do love dressing festively for it. Maybe it's the color combinations or the fun glitter heart nail polish, but I've always liked finding different ways to pair pinks and reds together. Last year, I was all about the heart-shaped sunglasses and the year before I rocked a lip sweater. This year, I was feeling a bit more boho glam partly because I find any excuse I can to wear this furry coat, and could not wait to wear this red maxi I just got in the mail. I also just picked up a new Revlon matte balm and it is the perfect shade of red. I highly recommend!

Happy Friday y'all! Yep, I've been listening to the country playlist on Spotify. So much to my dismay, it's continued to be a snowy situation here in Boston. Since I've been catapulted into full-on hibernation mode, I've been doing some nerdy things in my free time like cleaning up my computer and transferring files onto my external hard drive. I'm basically the coolest kid on my block. Anyways, during this fun process I found outfit photos that I completely forgot about. I didn't know that was possible, but here we are! I can't believe I never shared this look (from November!) because I was so amped about these wide-leg plaid pants. I got them for 75% off at Free People and snagged my favorite hat at the same time. Not only do I love these pants because of the deal I got, but also because of their (soon-to-be trendy) silhouette.

Faux Leather Leggings

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent most of mine eating clam chowder and avoiding all reasons to go outside. Exciting, right?! Today's look is definitely one of my favorites of 2015 so far. It can be really difficult to spice up my typical look without sacrificing warmth in Boston, but I'm always up for a challenge! I picked up these faux leather leggings a few weeks ago and it was love at first wear. I've always struggled to find leather leggings that had the right amount of stretch and comfort. This pair is surprisingly warm and has a high-waisted fit (my fave). I also recently snagged these Free People reflective sunglasses and I'm obsessed with their futuristic look!
