Loving Now // Chunky Sweaters

Welp, it’s almost February! That *usually* means chillier temps coming our way. We’ve been lucky enough to have a bit of a warm spell (for New England weather), but we know you’re coming for us, polar vortex. We’re going to be reaching for our favorite chunky sweaters before we know it!

And side note, we should have named this “Chunky White/Neutral Sweaters”, because apparently we only pin white/grey/tan sweaters, ha. Do you have a favorite chunky sweater you grab when the temps plummet? What are your favorite sweater brands? xo

The Thanksgiving countdown starts today! What are you guys wearing? Reg will be hosting her family in Boston, so a normal, cute outfit can happen, while Christa will be up in New Hampshire at the Farm, so comfort/warmth will win over style.

Olivia’s festive look is perfect for Thanksgiving – mixing deep hues and trendy textiles like pleats, leather and metallics. A cozy but chic sweater mixed with a fun midi skirt and your favorite booties will keep you feeling cute but comfy all night long! Which is important for a holiday centered around eating…

Happy hump day, friends! We’re trying to brighten up this gloomy day with fun walls! If you’re in the Hartford area, you should check out these cheery murals (on the side of the road on Pope Park Highway) – there are green, purple and blue ones too!

With the weather finally cooling down, it was the perfect day to break out the clogs and a long cozy sweater. To be honest, this outfit is pretty much my uniform in the fall! I love classic neutrals with some gold jewelry and a fun shoe.

I was most excited about my DIY necklace though! I grabbed some thin leather from Michaels and tied myself a little chocker. Thinking about doing a DIY post with a couple variations of what you can do with the leather strips! Stay tuned!

Love, Want, Need // Beach Coverups and Speakers

lovewantneed_beachcoverupsandspeakers


With all of this warm weather and sunny days, we can’t help but dream about having our feet in the sand while we sit in our cubes. We’re loving ourselves some vintage inspired kaftan-style beach coverups & cutesy embroidered tops to throw on once you’ve had a little too much Vitamin D. And of course no beach day is complete without an easy-to-carry speaker. Seriously, grab yourself one if you don’t have on already, they make all outdoor gatherings that much better!

Summer is officially here, people! We’ve had some ups and downs with the weather, but I think we’re finally feelin the heat. With this summer weather upon us, we’re starting to shape up our summer wardrobe. We’re always looking to other stylish bloggers for their warm weather looks (one of our favorite pinterest boards is our summer style board), and the ladies over at A Piece of Toast know how to style summer heat far better than us (Texas heat is not joke!). We’re all about rocking a good bandana and jean jacket, and this unique layered look is perfect for the indoor/outdoor struggles of the office. Happy copying 🙂


Our take:
Aviators
Bandana
A-Line Dress
Rose Gold Sandals
Pink Cross-Body Purse

Bangles

1 Item 3 Ways // Hooded Trench

Oh April, why are you so glum? Just a grey, wet, mess of a month you are! There’s pretty much only two things to get us through this limbo, and it’s the prospect of long summer days on the horizon and cute gear to help us through the New England downpours. That’s when the classic trench coat comes in. (*oh, and flowers – we’re cool with April showers if it brings May flowers)

Perfect Puffer

Happy Monday morning from snowy, sleety New England! It’s real gross out there right now, and while I’m not planning on heading out into the wintery mix, I am at least thankful I have such an awesome puffy coat just in case! We took these pictures a few weeks ago, before we got all of the white fluffy stuff, and I’ve been wearing my coat nonstop. I am a HUGE believer in puffy coats for NE winters – seriously guys, it gets cold. I’ve had good luck with Gap in the past, and this lightweight Lands End coat really surprised me – I love the color and the warmth! Stay safe out there friends!

Put a Scarf on it, Part Deux

Happy Friday, friends! We thought we’d take a quick break from our Friday Links to present to you: Put a Scarf on it, Part Deux. I bought this dress for my birthday, and had so much fun in it I had to break it out again for our holiday party. The high-low hemline was flirty and festive, and paired with my red lipstick, I was ready to roll. As previously posted, we made our way around town in our fancy holiday outfits, scarves in tow. We’re New England girls, we just love our scarves…

*Btw, I just want to give a little shoutout to those Old Navy heels. I usually have issues with heels, and these are extremely comfortable and so affordable!

American Fashion in Italy

When my brother Nick was studying in Italy, he found out quickly that the Italian students wanted to dress like Americans sooooo badly — like the whole nine yards, American brands, camo/military… aka everything my brother owns. Once we arrived, we started to notice it even more when we stopped into a couple of awesome trendy 2nd hand stores which were as American as it gets. American decor (license plates, Elvis, NBA posters) Levi’s on every shelf, and American military gear like no other. Needless to say, my brother’s simple style was a hit.
