Though I will forever love Boston’s cobblestone streets, they aren’t so fun to walk in! There have been countless times where I pack an extra pair of flats to exchange for my heels, especially when it has been a long day and this gal does not feel like walking..I am mean wobbling! When it comes to finding that perfect fit within a shoe, I look for a couple of things. Comfort is above all else. Being a dancer until I went to college, God blessed me with the aftermath of wide feet- so jealous of all my size 6 friends. Such a feature leaves it sometimes near to impossible to find a shoe I love style and comfort wise.

You’ll probably guess that style is a close second when it comes to my choice in shoes. Accessories have always been my favorite pieces of clothing to pick out, and shoes can be such a fun element to add to any style. I love keeping my shoes to neutrals, that’s why I fell in love with these Rockport Sling Boots! The leather khaki is perfect for transitioning into warmer temps, especially with the peep-toe. The sling-back and wedge style leaves no room for wobbling on those cobblestone streets, and the lining is created with foam- making these shoes super comfortable!

I paired my boots with my new favorite pair of jeans. The raw edge is a fun trend I have been seeing a lot these days and I have to say I am loving it! This top is so great for spring. The neckline gives a different look to all the off the shoulder tops I have been wearing lately. Also, mint is one of my favorite colors to play with during spring- it matches perfectly with my boots!

Things have been non-stop around here these days! I’ve been creating non-stop for SoWa, and I cannot wait to share with you all/meet you all in person when I start selling my Sparkle Studio designs every weekend between May-October. I hope you all have an amazing rest of the week!

Happy Friday friends! Today I am sharing a fall staple – grey over the knee boots! For years, I wanted to find a pair, but never found ones that I knew I would love season after season. Last year I did! Though they are a year old, there are so many great grey boots out right now that are worth investing in!

The color grey may not seem like it will go with a lot, but for a neutral loving person like me, they sure do! I could even see myself pairing these boots with a bright sweater, and think I will post and outfit soon to show how they are so versatile!

Now let’s talk about this sweater…it’s SO soft! Literally the softest sweater I have ever tried. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago, and girls it’s been so hard not to reach for it every.single.day to wear. Cold mornings make me want to wear all the comfy things, and this sweater does the job well.

What’s everyone’s plan for the long weekend? I’m so ready to kick back and relax! I plan to grab lunch with my best friend Julia tomorrow, and take my parents out with my brothers for their anniversary. We’re a week late, but with everyone’s busy schedules, we haven’t found a night that has worked out! It’s so funny, but lately I catch myself thinking “oh, I can’t wait for it to be cold out so I can relax and sit on the couch all night.” I may sound lazy, but that’s allll I look forward to doing in the coming fall weeks!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Officially Fall

DRESS: ASOS // BOOTIES: Nordstrom (love this similar pair!) // SUNGLASSES: Ray-Ban // LIPSTICK: Bobbi Brown

Happy Thursday loves! It’s officially fall! Though I am so so happy my favorite season has started, I just am a little bummed I am not starting it on a better foot! I don’t know what it is about this week, but for some reason I am just a combination of tired, drained, and anxious! Maybe it’s Mercury in Retrograde that is messing up my energy? I’m not sure, but I am sure so thankful that this planet phase is almost over lol! Everything just feels off!

One thing that sure does feel right is this dress! Today I’m sharing a dress that I am so in love with. Like a dress I could wear everyday and wouldn’t even think twice about changing out of! This ASOS dress fits the bill for the perfect fall babydoll dress. The wide sleeves give a slight bohemian feel to the style, but overall this dress is great for day or night, and is easily pired with booties now that fall has officially arrived! Yay!!

I hope you all are having a great week! I was so tempted to hit snooze this morning, but thankfully tomorrow is Friday and I can relax then!

Happy Monday loves! How was everyone’s weekend? I spent the majority of the weekend cleaning and preparing my closet for fall! It’s sad to put all my summer clothes away, but I am very excited for fall weather and activities. Flannels, scarves, and cozy sweater dresses are already on my mind along with trips to see the fall foliage.

On Saturday, my mom and I headed to our local apple orchards, Smolak Farms. We went early in the morning to get fresh apple cider donuts and hot chocolate. The weather was still quite warm and perfect for sitting outside to enjoy our treats.

Speaking of warm weather, this dress is perfect for the summer/fall transition. The cowl neck sweater ties in the cozy, fall look I crave, but still allows me to not sweat all day in this Indian Summer weather lol.

The dress comes in another color, but I loved pairing this mustard color with black accessories. I never was one that was fond of black accessories, but this season I am just being drawn to them! They honestly can be worn with anything, in any season.

I hope you all have a great start to your week! Najib’s dealership will be having it’s grand opening this week (yay!!) and we will be busy planning/getting the place put together! This has been a project him and his family has been working since we started dating (three years now), so it’s so exciting to finally see it all come together.

One thing you need to know about me: I love scarves. Always have, always will. They just make me feel so comfortable in my outfit, plus allow this always cold girl to be warm in the frigid New England weather!

I found this scarf during the #NSALE and couldn’t wait any longer to wear it (though heads did turn last week while taking these photos..what’s a girl doing in 90 degree weather with a blanket scarf on?!). The colors of the scarf are so perfect for fall, and the material is SO soft. I paired it with one of my favorite sweaters for fall, dark denim, and lace up flats!

Below, I rounded up some of my favorite blanket scarves of the season! All are at a reasonable price, so make sure to stock up before they sell out! Blanket scarves, especially ones in plaid, always sell out so quickly because they are the perfect accent to any fall outfit!

How has everyone’s week been? I am so excited for the weekend! My mom and I have plans to go apple/pumpkin picking!
