What I Wore: Femme Boutique Boston

I'm loving the amazing weather we've been having lately! It's been fun wearing all of my favorite dresses and sandals and enjoying drinks on the patio and of course games at Fenway Park and outings for lobster rolls. This belted plaid dress from Femme Boutique Boston is perfect for all of the above and is a steal at just $44!

Their site has some really affordable pieces that are perfect for updating your wardrobe for Spring and Summer without breaking the bank. I'm in love with this plaid hem tunic and lightweight peplum, both super simple, lightweight styles that can be worn over and over again.

Femme Boutique Boston is hosting a launch party & trunk show Tuesday June 21st, 6:30pm-9pm at Pellana Restaurant at 9 Sylvan St. in Peabody, MA. It will be a great night of cocktails, light bites, and of course, great Spring styles.

What I Wore: Boston Calling Style Inspiration

How is it that Memorial Day Weekend is next weekend?! That means Boston Calling is next weekend! I feel like I waited all Winter for this Spring festival. And they seriously stepped up their game this year with the addition of an additional stage sponsored by Verizon Wireless, an extensive lineup of comedy shows, and even more food on site! Ruth's Chris Steak House, Zinneken's Belgian Waffles, Whole Heart Provisions, Lila Wines, and more will be joining favorites like Tasty Burger, Bon Me, and Samuel Adams

Now I'm just waiting for the day to get close enough so I can plan what to wear! This look I styled recently features Zooshoo and finishing touches by Chloe + Isabel and is perfect for festivals like Boston Calling. I almost always wear a light layer like this long cardigan for when the sun sets and the temperatures drop.

ZooShoo has so many great pieces perfect for festival season! Some amazing fringed numbers, printed rompers, and sandals at really great prices. Their summer essentials shop has a great selection of styles including my romper!

Head to their site to shop!

What I Wore: Buttoned Up in Banana Republic

Spring is in the air and I've been having the best luck at Banana Republic lately! They've been having some killer sales, including 40% off full price and additional 50% off sale on select days. I recently nabbed an off the shoulder pin-stripe dress, some amazing sandals (see em on Instagram), and a fab sleeveless vest in addition to this sweet dress and tailored blazer.

This blazer fit very well off the rack and I loved the adorable gold button detail and striped interior lining. I paired the jacket with a simple flowy dress from their most recent collection and gladiator inspired sandals for a look that was classically nautical with a twist.

I can see myself restyling this dress over and over for baby showers, graduations, backyard BBQs, or just a casual Sunday brunch on Newbury Street. Since it's been such a mild Spring in New England, light layering pieces like this blazer have been on heavy rotation in my daily styling. Thank god for the sales Banana Republic has bee having lately. Can't wait to share the sleeveless blazer I bought! Stay tuned for more!

What I Wore: Derby Day

Yesterday was Derby Day and like any fashion blogger I love any excuse to dress up! Especially when it involves fun fascinators and cool hats. I donned by Derby best and headed to Boston Chops for their Derby party where I spent the afternoon snacking on pulled pork sliders and sipping champagne. It was a really fun way to spend the afternoon and join in on the festivities.

What I Wore: Crane & Lion

Life has been go-go-go lately and I find that more often than not, my gym clothes are required to do double duty. Not only do they need to be comfortable enough for an intense workout but they still need to be stylish enough to wear on the street and not feel like a college student bumming it to class. And I found exactly that at the newly opened Crane & Lion shop on Charles Street in Beacon Hill!

This is Crane & Lion's third shop in Massachusetts (you can also find them at 460 Harrison Street in the South End & on Centre Sreet in Nantucket). With a focus on transitional clothing that's chic and sophisticated, Crane & Lion creates high quality pieces designed right here in Boston. I stopped by the new Charles Street shop shortly after they opened on Marathon Monday and picked up their best selling Wrap Sweater in Wan Blue ($120) and Capri Tights in Nirvana ($90).

I'm in love! I was able to run errands in the morning, hit the gym after, and then wore my wrap sweater to work with jeans and a tee. It's truly effortlessly chic sport wear that's up for whatever the day may bring. Check out their Spring/Summer 16 lookbook here or visit the new shop at 40 Charles Street!
