In an attempt to expand on the ‘eat’ part of my Eat Sleep Dress & Repeat mantra, I’ve decided to write more about one of my favorite topics: food (and the best places to get it). I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to start than with one of the most highly-anticipated new restaurants in Boston, Frenchie. As if the name wasn’t enough to get you in the door, maybe the selection of French tapas or elegant decor (complete with trendy floral wallpaper) will.
Located right on Tremont Street, this intimate space is perfect for date night or a ladies’ get together. That being said, make sure to snag a reservation because space is limited and it fills up fast! What else should you expect? Insanely good French fare and some flavorful dishes. This time around we tried the brussels sprouts, French fries (of course), tuna crudo, escargot, salted cod croquette, and crème brûlée; A++ to all! The best part about a tapas menu is that you have the opportunity to try… six dishes that still go fairly easy on your stomach and wallet.
So next time you’re looking to indulge in the Boston restaurant scene, know that Frenchie comes highly recommended! If you visit, let me know what you think and enjoy!
New York Fashion Week has come (and gone) for another season and brought with it new trends to lust over… as expected. It seems that every year the designers get more expansive in their range and as a result, there are trends at every end of the spectrum; from Western vibes at Calvin Klein to sleek cutouts and sheer layers at Proenza Schouler.
There was more velvet all over the runway, midi skirts at Carolina Herrera and J. Crew, 90’s-inspired wind suits at Public School, suiting at Zimmerman, fur bags at Kenzo and combat boots at Altuzarra — just to name some highlights.
Shop some NYFW inspired pieces below that I am currently coveting. Until next season!

Well, February is here and it has come with its fair share (read: feet) of snow and freezing temps. I’m blaming it for my blogging hiatus. There’s little motivation to get up and dressed and more incentive to cuddle on the couch and binge watch Shameless. Anyway…
When it is time to get out of the house, winter dressing is all about layers and piling them on in any creative way you’d like. I chose to start with fishnets (the accessory of the season) + a culotte jumpsuit + some hefty booties + a bandana. Add a duster jacket from one of my favorite brands Vetta Capsule, and a leather one, and my look was complete. #TwoCoatsAreBetterThanOne
Using my go-to basics as the foundation of a look is a no brainer; all that’s left is to throw on a killer coat and some boots. I’m obsessed with the high ankle style of this pair from Public Desire.
And this just in…
I’m happy to share that I am partnering with ALEX AND ANI in support of the American Cancer Society. 20% of the proceeds from the Celebrate Today bangle go to the cause. Shopping definitely feels even better when you can give back in the process. I love that ALEX AND ANI creates bracelets with a cause and works with various organizations to help give back via it’s Charity by Design line – we need more of that in the world!

Let’s be honest: athleisure is not a new concept. It’s been at least a year since this trend took over the fashion world and here we still are… passing off sweats as fashion and calling it street style. Don’t get me wrong – I’m obsessed. It’s brilliant – genius even. Anything that makes my most comfortable clothes acceptable in the outdoor world is 100% Jessica Approved.
So, how do you style your athleisure gear to feel on-trend? Try throwing on fishnets under a pair of sweats or wear a matching sweatshirt and pant with some pointed-toe boots. If you style your casual pieces with something unexpected, you’re sure to look street style chic. (Cliché, yet appropriate!)

My favorite winter clothing item has to be a black turtleneck. It’s the perfect layering piece and can be the foundation of almost any look… wear alone tucked into a classic pair of jeans and a dainty necklace for a classic vibe or under a leather tank for something more edgy. The best part is you can find this staple at all price points – from Uniqlo to Wolford and ALLSAINTS.

From what I can see, “The Uniform” this winter is an oversized dress, tights and over the knee boots. Minimal effort with maximum effect — gotta love that. Just add accessories: mine are from my new favorite shop LOÉIL.
