Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed the warm summer weekend. I was pretty happy about digging out some of my summer pieces that I had put into the hibernation bin under my bed the weekend before. Speaking of summer, I've finally gotten around to recapping my trip to New York for NYFW. I stayed with my dear blogger bud Tracy, who writes The Right Shoes and jumped right into the whirlwind that is Fashion Week as soon as I made it into town. On day one I attend the Trina Turk presentation and then booked it downtown to catch the show of William Okpo, a women's wear label created by two sisters, Lizzy and Darlene Okpo. The show was in an old school gym and guests sat on wooden benches as models sauntered around them in pastel fabrics and crazy sculptured hair. Susie Bubble was in the house, but I was too starstruck to go say hello. #shygirlktab

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fab weekend. I spent most of mine reorganizing my closet and breaking out my fall pieces, like this mixed-print top from Piperlime! Today, I'm excited to start off this week with a fun giveaway featuring Well-Kept and a crew of amazing bloggers. Well-Kept is a brand of chic-ly packaged screen cleansing towelettes that allow you to battle screen scum in one quick wipe. Did you know that your phone can be dirtier than a toilet handle? EW. These wipes are a quick way to sanitize your phone, tablet, laptop and/or glasses. The resealable packaging actually does reseal and after wiping down my laptop today (possibly for the first time ever), I've become a major fan of these towelettes.

Happy throwback Thursday! I was digging through my photos from this summer and realized I completely forgot about these photos I took back in early August. My boyfriend and I took a sail around the Boston Harbor one evening and it was a phenomenal way to spend a Saturday evening. It happened to be really chilly that afternoon, but thankfully my dress matched the color of complimentary blankets that were on the boat, so it was all good. We sailed around the harbor for 2 hours and
Happy Wednesday! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I made a quick trip down to NYC for NYFW. It was a whirlwind of fun, even in 1000% humidity. This was the first time I was able to head into Lincoln Center thanks to one of my dear friends from college who squeezed my name onto the list for the Trina Turk / Mr. Turk Spring/Summer 2015 presentation. (Thanks lady, you da bomb!) The presentation was jam packed with photographers, press and some of my favorite bloggers. As expected, the clothing spoke for itself.
From happy colors and floral prints, to bold accessories and chic headbands, Trina did not disappoint. I was also pleasantly surprised by how interactive the presentation was. Everyone was snapping selfies (myself included) with the models and the models themselves were live Instagramming during the presentation. The sunset maxi dress and bright pink jumpsuit were two of my favorite looks. I was really digging the 70s vibe and kind of want to start rocking one of those thick headbands right about... now.
What do you think of these looks?

Happy Friday everyone! We made it. Get yourself that extra shot of espresso today and pat yourself on the back, you deserve it! Today I'm excited to introduce the newest face to the local Boston boutique scene: Her Closet Boston. When I first heard of HCB, I found it very interesting that the brand was an ecommerce company expanding into the brick & mortar sector. After seeing how cute the clothes were and the reasonable prices, I was excited to learn more about the brand. I stopped into the HCB storefront located at 234 Harvard St in Coolidge Corner a few weeks ago as the store was prepping for its opening day. I met owner, Hilary Marino, to discuss fall trends, how she launched HCB into a full time gig and, of course, photograph some outfits! Read on to learn more about Hilary's story and the new boutique!
