casual outfitBetween the wind and rain the weather has been working against me. However, I am thankful for milder Virginia winters. I mean NYC is the greatest town ever, but the winters really tested my spirit. And my ‘tested’ I mean NYC winters crushed my spirit into the cold, hard pavement.

So I’ll take a little wind and rain if I get milder temps in return.

Also I promise I won’t talk about the weather every day this week.

Marty McFlyGirl

fall styleThis outfit reminds me of a glam Marty McFly. Though in hindsight I should have worn my puffy vest OVER my jean jacket. A rookie, error. I will try harder next time. Or maybe I will build a time machine and go back in time, reshoot this look, and repost it! OOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH, tricky…

Strolling through Boston

Casual Fall

Are colored pants still a thing? I sure hope so because I am not ready to quit them just yet. Soooo, I am just going to go ahead and say they’re still a thing– to make it official.

Colored pants are still a thing, everyone. You’re welcome.

Is Eloise Home?

scotty sweater and oxford shirtHubby and I were over on the east side getting tie hooks from the Container Store because we are adults and purchasing tie hooks is how adults spend their weekends. Since we were so close to the Plaza Hotel, I insisted upon an impromptu outfit shoot that featured one of my favorite sweaters. Then we got froyo from the Plaza Food Hall. It was all very touristy and fabulous.

Look to the West

layered button downsWhen I was going back through this particular shoot to select photos, I noticed that in 99% of the photos I am looking in one direction. So apologies in advance that all of these photos look the same.

Also, this is the first time I have layered button downs. Turned out pretty good, in my humble opinion.layered button down

Attempting Layering

This year, I am trying my best to be at least moderately cute during the cold months. I have come to realize that being cute when it’s cold requires mastering layering — something I usually never do. I am trying to do better and I have noticed that layering works! Putting on piles of clothes really does keep you warm without having to go straight to option two: the sleeping bag coat.
