In the age of online shopping, sometimes I just get a little burst of joy when a really great catalog pops up in my mailbox. Which is exactly the case when the Spring Boden catalog arrived this week. To me, it feels so bright and fresh and playful — and the styling is spot on. In fact I was almost as excited about that vintage bar cart in the background of one of the models as I was about the adorable patterned pencil skirts!
Boston weather is making me a bit crazy this week — it’s freezing cold in the morning and then toasty warm by mid-day. I like to commit to a season, and I am ready for Fall. I’m already plotting my official switch from sandals and sundresses to my Fall Uniform … which pretty much consists of tights and boots with cozy dresses, and bright jeans with soft striped tees. What’s your Fall uniform?
Do you have a signature pattern? I’m pretty committed to stripes — both in fashion and decor. But every once in awhile I cheat on stripes and end up falling in love with polka dots. I’m currently enamored with all of these black and white polka dot bracelets and their pop-art feel!
What a gorgeous weekend! I checked out a new flea market in Davis Square and scooped up a mini-globe bank from one of the vendors; it’s going to be dangerous now that I know such a great thrifting spot is in my backyard. And in other shopping news, I got an amazing shirt from Old Navy — I couldn’t say no to hot pink and navy stripes. Nothing like a few good bargains to start the week off right!
I’ve been enjoying the New York Fashion Week updates from the comfort of my own home this week, living vicariously through the instagrams and tweets, pins and posts, of all of my favorite bloggers. The one piece that has stood out for me among all of the fashion week chatter has been this gorgeous striped Oscar De La Renta dress… isn’t it just the most chic thing you’ve ever seen?

I started digging through September issues over the weekend and LOVED seeing all of the green in the pages. I picked a kelly green fabric for the bridesmaid dresses in our wedding (check out the swatch below) and was inspired by a dress I saw Mara Rooney wear — I just love how bright and crisp the color looks! What do you think about these shades of green, will you be rocking it this Fall?
I am ready and willing for Fall to arrive — and on the top of my Fall wish list are tassel loafers. I found five fun pairs, all for under $50, plus a bonus pair from the Gap that are missing the tassels, but certainly not the style. Confession: I’ve already scooped up the pair from Target, and the polka dot version from the Gap — I probably need one of the pink versions next, right?
Just a few fun clutches to share today; chevron, stripes, polka dots and anchors — they seem to be hitting all of my favorite visual themes. The two versions from Loft are under $20, such a steal you could take home two! So let’s hear it, which one is your favorite?
This week’s 5 under $50 couldn’t be contained to just 5 — I had to add in one extra item because there are so many fun neon pieces out for Summer. Hot pink pairs perfectly with a white tee and a beach-y glow, don’t you think? Are you playing with electric pink in your wardrobe this season?
There is nothing more satisfying to me than finding a cute piece of clothing for a major steal. And when I get a great score like this, I have to share! I found myself in Kohl’s this weekend, turning up my nose at that idea that I could find anything cute in there — but out of the corner of my eye I was drawn to polka dots and ended up snagging an adorable silky swing tank for just $20. I liked it so much I already wore it to brunch this morning. And, I’ll admit when I’m wrong — there are cute things at Kohl’s!
