As the esteemed Mr. Rogers would say, yesterday was a beautiful day in the neighborhood. It was sunny in the mid 40s (which felt downright balmy) and the scent and sounds of spring were everywhere. I scooted out and took a nice long walk on my lunch break and soaked up as much vitamin D as I could. I ended up walking along the lake and was astounded at how other worldly the beaches looked covered in peaks of snow and ice. Unfortunately this was the only photo I was able to take before my camera battery died (insert forehead palm slap here) but in a way it’s fitting as there are a lot of exciting things on the horizon for me both personally and professionally.

what are you looking forward to?

D told me I looked like a tourist. I told him as long as I looked like Jane Weston playing tourist I’d take it as a compliment… I don’t think he knew what I was talking about.

Where do you find inspiration for your outfits?

Before Brunch Blunders

The time my Dad turned outfit photos into a silent short film.

  Blazer: Saver’s, Sweater & Booties: Forever 21, Pants: Gap, Scarf: Cart in Copley Square, Fringe Bag: ebay

What my Dad thought was the shutter was actually the video capture button. So instead of the three or four outfit photos I was expecting I ended up with three silent short films. This was my favorite because at one point my dad tells me to show the lion my shoes and of course I obliged, to my utter embarrassment now.

Sunnies and Sheer Blouse: Downtown Threads, Khakis: Gap, Booties: Forever 21

I’ve had this this sheer blush blouse for less than a week and it’s already been a game changer. I scooped it up at Downtown Threads (though it’s originally Forever 21) last week. I was uncomfortable in and unhappy with the outfit I’d thrown on that morning so I stopped by Downtown Threads on my lunch break; bought this shirt and then insisted that James take photograph me in my new “blush blouse” in the alley behind the store.

So a huge thank you to Caro and James of Downtown Threads for not judging me on the frequency of these midday outfit changes and for not being creeped out when I try to coax you into alleys with my camera.

Do you ever change your outfit midday?

Socks and Booties

Blazer: Vintage (via my mom), Socks & Vest: Gifted, Belt: Goodwill, Shirtdress: TJ Maxx, Tights: Target, Booties: Forever 21By the time Friday morning rolls around I’m usually running on empty so the less I have to think about putting together an outfit the better. Inspired by Catherine’s “Chalet Chic” post I used some of my favorite pieces to create this casual New England winter look and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

I was fully expecting to hate how the socks looked pulled up with my oxford wedges but I like the pop of color they added. It might not be my most pulled together look (without the blazer, vest or booties it looks like I’m wearing a night shirt with holiday socks) but it was exactly what I was looking for.
