We hope to see you there! xx
As spring tries to make its way to us, and summer not too far behind, I can’t help but day dream about my warm weather wardrobe and the things that are inspiring me for the upcoming seasons. It seems to be manifesting into care-free looks that read as effortless and simple yet also pack a feminine and high-end punch. Here are the rules I’m living by when the warmer weather hits:
Keep it flowing. Call it the heat or the easy, breezy vibe of the season, I’m lusting over pieces with movement. Exaggerated silhouettes and ruffles (the adult kind) are so trendy right now — plus, dramatic pieces make dressing super simple.
Minimalism over maximalism. Whether it’s spring, or any other season, I like being able to rely on delicate accessories that become like a second skin. Even more so now, I don’t want to think of statement jewelry when I’m running out to grab some rosé al fresco with friends or jumping in the lake on the weekends.

Denim on denim. Although denim initially seems too heavy for spring and summer, it’s all about switching to lightweight versions of their winter counter parts like skirts, vests and chambray cold shoulder tops.
B-A-N(-D)-A-N-A-S. Bandanas have been my go-to accessory for a while now, but luckily silk ones transfer perfectly from winter to spring. It feels European chic with an air of jetsetter on holiday.
Still inspired by my recent trip to New Orleans, I was psyched to hear about Boston newcomer Buttermilk & Bourbon. Led by Chef Jason Santos, this hot spot literally brings a classic NOLA menu to Back Bay. I was super anxious to see if it was as authentic as it seemed and, to be honest, I really felt like I was back in The Big Easy.
Walking into Buttermilk and Bourbon is like stepping into a hidden corner of the French Quarter, or right down Bourbon Street, depending on where you’re located amongst the sections of the restaurant. But what may be even better than the atmosphere is the menu (of course). If you’re a Moscow Mule fan, try the My Ma Louisiana cocktail to start. Past that, I think it’s impossible for me to choose my favorite dish… we tried the biscuits, fried chicken thighs, BBQ shrimp, fried pickles, cast iron rabbit and dumplings and pork belly cracklings. I’m full just thinking about it. BUT, if you made me, I’d say the fried chicken and biscuits are absolute must-haves. I’ll admit, we actually took the biscuits we didn’t eat home. Trust me, there’s no way two people could eat four of those things and it would practically be a sin not to eat every bite!
The sugar on top of the beignets?? Your bill comes pinned to a voodoo doll — someone out there is suffering from the success of this place… yikes. Those poor souls aside, you should certainly put Buttermilk & Bourbon on top of your list of must-try Boston restaurants. It’s almost as good as a New Orleans getaway!
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been partnering with ALEX AND ANI to promote the wonderful organizations they support via their Charity by Design collection. One of the new additions is the Claddagh bangle benefiting The Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundation. The BCSF works in many ways to support children in need through schools, community centers and other social service facilities. As usual, 20% of the purchase price will go directly to the organization, so be sure to participate and get yourself one!
But what I realized is that I haven’t talked about ALEX AND ANI generally as a (fantastic) brand. For New Englanders, it has been so cool to see a local company grow into an international one… especially led by a #girlboss! What I love about ALEX AND ANI is that there’s truly something for every one. Whether you want to rep your college or favorite sports team, or you want something more understated to wear everyday, this company has got you covered! And it doesn’t seem like they’re slowing down any time soon… #charmedarms are here to stay! Check out how I wear my bangles below:
Recently I’ve been super motivated to clean out the old, worn and unused items in my closet to make room (and money) for things that I actually love and wear. One part of my closet that’s taken a hit is the ‘comfy clothes’ pile: IE sweatshirts, sweatpants and t-shirts. I figured it’s worth the $$$ to invest in polished sweats that I can actually wear outside the confines of the apartment. Let’s be honest, there’s certainly no need to hold on to a high school t-shirt that’s riddled with shameful ice cream stains…
So, where’s the first place I thought to look? Madewell of course. It’s the perfect place for high quality basics with an All-American vibe that never go out of style. Let’s just hope my tendency to spill is gone for good, just like those stained clothes are.
For anyone that has been following my blog for a while, my love of Zara is probably very obvious. Although I’m beginning to transition out of the fast fashion phase and would rather save up to splurge on more high-end, quality pieces, there’s something that always pulls me back. You just can’t beat the quality to cost ratio that Zara can provide. I always can rely on the brand to have up to the minute items that will also last in my closet for seasons to come. That being said, you can bet I always have a list of items stacked in my cart just waiting to come home…
