This week has been a crazy one. In addition to hosting my shopping party at Tobey Grey in Newton and starting my new job, I attended events at Lolita, the Westin, Madewell, & Intimacy. Consider me one burned out fashionista! But I'm definitely looking forward to a chill weekend, that's for sure!

What I Wore: Fancy Pants

Last week we had some truly gorgeous weather here in New England. The foliage has been beautiful to watch, but I have to say it was extremely pleasant enjoying a spa day at Mirbeau Inn & Spa and being able to sit poolside in the sun! I took the opportunity to wear this casual vintage Armani tank and styled it with a similar shade of green and a bit of everyone's favorite neutral (black, duh!). I'm seriously obsessed with these fluid pants from LOFT; I bought them in both black & green! But when they are so comfy and easy to style it's hard to resist...

Spa Day at Mirbeau Inn & Spas

“I saw you walking down Boylston Street last week but you were walking too fast for me to say hi!” Or, “Chill out! We have plenty of time!” Are frequent comments I hear from friends and family throughout the week. As someone who thrives on stress, and lives a very fast-paced lifestyle, it’s very rare that I take time to really unwind and take care of myself.

But last week, I did just that. Khatu and I took last Wednesday off to make the short drive to Mirbeau Inn & Spa in Plymouth, MA for a much needed spa day. The great thing about Mirbeau is you don’t have to be a guest to enjoy the wonderful amenities they have to offer; any spa treatment or appointment provides clients with full access to their fitness facilities, locker rooms, relaxation room & foot spa, as well as their heated outdoor aqua terrace & bar.

We started the day with generous glasses of cucumber and lemon infused water before heading to an 11am Pilates class in the fitness center. The class was small, and the instructor was very pleasant. She started with some basic flow and slowly moved into more rigorous core work. Immediately following our workout we made our way to the Inn’s Bistro & Wine Bar, Henri Marie, for a decadent lunch of fresh, raw oysters, Duck Confit Flatbread, and a yummy (although a little crumbly) Lobster BLT. Since the weather was nice, we were able to enjoy lunch on the terrace. Not sure how many fall days like those we have left!

After lunch we headed to the spa for our treatments. I absolutely loved the setup of Mirbeau’s spa; you enter the relaxation suite through the locker rooms and find yourself in a dimly lit oasis of comfy white lounges and a warm foot spa. I couldn’t resist plunging my feet into the foot spa between sessions. First up was a 50 minute Deep Tissue Massage. My therapist was very communicative, and worked out some troublesome knots throughout my body (especially on my right side, what’s up with that?). I emerged from the room feeling slightly sore, but completely relaxed and like a weight had been lifted from my limbs. Immediately following my massage was a 50 minute Mirbeau Signature Facial. My esthetician was very communicative, knowledgeable, and worked quickly and painlessly during extractions. Once again, I emerged from the room feeling completely relaxed and at ease.

Before we left we stopped for a dip in the heated aqua terrace to enjoy a glass of wine in the sunshine. I could have spent all evening there if you let me! Overall, I was very pleased with the experience provided by Mirbeau. It’s the perfect place for a midweek retreat or to simply spend the weekend being pampered with a significant other. Have you ever treated yourself to a spa day? It was a truly indulgent experience at Mirbeau Inn & Spa and I'm very much looking forward to making this a regular treat!

Lucky Me!

Yesterday was my first day at my new gig at Lucky Brand! I'm really excited to be part of this irresistibly cool company which just so happens to offer a very generous employee discount program! I have my eye on a few new pieces for Fall and they just so happen to all be grey and black. Call me a creature of habit, but I know what I like. A new pair of jeans is definitely on my list as well!

What I Wore: Black & Blue

It has been absolutely gorgeous these past few days in Boston. The weather has been perfect for light layers but still warm enough for bare legs, which is my favorite type of weather ever! I wore my new custom Elie Kai dress for an afternoon playing tourist in Copley Square. You can customize your fabric, length, and more at Elie Kai to get the perfect look and fit from any of their pieces. I layered it with my favorite faux leather Rock & Republic jacket and black heeled ankle booties for an edgy early Fall look.

Longer length dresses are tricky for me but this one stops in just the right spot above the knee. The longer jacket is cinched at the waist, which gives the look some much needed shape. 

Have you been to the Boston Public Library lately? I had no idea it was undergoing renovation. Have a happy Monday friends!
