Brand Spotlight: ALEX AND ANI.

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:

Currently Coveting: NYFW.

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!
