The Perfect Gift // with Daniel Wellington

Friday, May 18, 2018

With so many high school and college graduations, spring and summer birthdays, baby showers, bridal showers, it can be overwhelming to find the perfect gift! (Other than the obvious shower registries, which make gift-buying a heck of a lot easier.)

Every year it can get harder to come up with good gift ideas - things that the recipient will use, enjoy, appreciate, and something that won't break the bank. If you're currently looking for an idea for someone's special occasion, I have something for you!

I've teamed up with Swedish watch company, Daniel Wellington, to invite you into their Boston location to save big on the perfect gift - a new watch! During the month of MAY, the DW location on 228 Newbury Street, Boston, is offering YOU a deal on their watch bundles when you mention ME! Keep reading if you want to get the discount :)

This is an exclusive in-store offer that is only available at their Boston location, so if you're in need of a gift, and you're in the area, stop by and check out all the beautiful pieces in their collection.

BONUS: They will be offering FREE custom engraving for all watch purchases! How cute to include the recipients name/monogram, a special date, their NEW last name for those brides-to-be?? It's always a good idea to personalize gifts when you can - definitely gives you brownie points for thoughtfulness.

I've actually been a huge fan of Daniel Wellington for a while now - their watches are so chic, timeless and affordable. A classic black or cognac band with a white face will never go out of style. They have all kinds of style combinations and face sizes, and the quality is amazing. The leather is a little stiff right out of the box, but after just a few wears and bending the band by hand, they're so soft and comfortable. They are also perfect for pairing with other bracelets - I love wearing mine with this dainty black/gold piece.

A CLASSIC COMBO

Sunday, March 4, 2018

Is there anything more classic than black+white stripes and camel? Well... I guess I could think of a few other things, but that combo is up there! Another win from SheIn - this silky blouse is a great shape, color and fit! Obviously it'll rotate in nicely since my wardrobe is mostly black (no shame).

I love that the stripes go a in a different direction around the neckline - it adds a little bit of texture to an otherwise textureless top. Here I tucked it into a tight-pleated mini skirt (more texture) and opted for a taller ankle bootie and a long camel colored coat to play with proportions. It would be super cute half tucked into a pair of high-waisted boyfriend jeans (my obsession right now... and always) - or over leggings with a long cardigan and OTK boots. Really though, you can wear stripes almost any way - keep it simple by pairing them with solid colors and textures, or get funky and do a little print-mixing! Just make sure your prints are proportionate, i.e. pair smaller prints with larger, like colored prints.

SheIn has so many great, affordable options for both classic and trendy pieces - and at price points that won't break the bank, you can afford to try some styles you might not otherwise want to spend the cash on. Go ahead - try something new!

Knit Accessories Are a Thing

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Who knew knit accessories could be so cute! I've been using this knit coffee cozy non-stop since i got it in the mail a few weeks ago. It was made by Lianna, owner and C.E.CrOcheter of Salem Style. I love supporting local boss ladies, and Lianna is no exception. She hand-makes all of her items in my neighboring town, the Witch City: Salem, MA!

I love iced coffee, and drinking out of tumblers in general, so a coffee sleeve that fit all my cups (and helps to keep my drinks hot/cold) was a no-brainer. I chose this oatmeal colored cozy because, well... neutrals (obvs) - and I won't lie, it looks super cute in photos!

Check out all of the other Salem Style knit goodies HERE. She makes scarves, beanies, mittens... and they're all adorable! I even matched my outfit to this cozy on more than one occasion #noshame - I think I need the black one next!








OVERALLS THAT DIDN'T COME UP SHORT

Sunday, February 25, 2018

My style is constantly changing, and when asked how I define it, I always answer with "I can't! It's A little bit of this and a little bit of that." -- My outfits change with my mood and whether I'm feeling girly, sexy, sporty, boho, glam or whatever, I always find something that feels like "me".

I picked out these SheIn corduroy overalls as part of my latest collab with the brand, and I'll be honest, I was hesitant at first. I wanted to try a new style, but I almost didn't order them because I wasn't sure how they'd fit my body. I have such a long torso and I have to be careful when it comes to rompers and once-pieces (you know, to avoid the dreaded camel you-know-what)... but since these were adjustable I figured I'd give them a shot.

And... they're SO CUTE! They actually really flatter my 12-year-old-boy physique - and they have POCKETS! They're a great neutral color and I love the texture of the cord. I paired them with a chunky knit sweater from H&M, OTK Boots and a thick scarf, because who says you can't wear shorts in the winter!!

Coziness with SheIn

Thursday, December 28, 2017

No shame, I change into PJs the second I get home, and on the weekends, I'm usually in sweats/leggings and an oversized top. I'm also always cold, so I tend to layer up (especially in the winter... looking at you New England). Since I spend a lot of time inside this time of year, finding good, warm lounge pieces is key.

SheIn.com is one of my favorite sites for affordable fashion finds. I actually just ordered some things last night! They have such a great selection and the prices can't be beat - impressive quality too! Here are some recent items I got that are perfect for this time of year.

OUTFIT #1: Faux Shearling Hooded Coat

I wish you guys could feel how soft the inside of this wrap cardigan is! This one is the brown/tan color, but it also comes in a gray shade as well. The material is super thick and it has a little clasp on the front to keep it closed. Perfect for cold days on the couch with netflix marathons. And yes, I wear my beanies inside!






OUTFIT #2: Drop Shoulder Marled Knit Dress

This tunic sweater (which could probably double as a dress if you're a few inches shorter) is the perfect throw-on-and-go piece. I love tops like this that layer nicely under jackets, and are easy to take on and off if you're out shopping (yes, I went there). For $14, you might as well get a few versions - it comes in 6 different colors and it has pockets! #win

Customizable Rain Boots

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Happy #TuesdayShoesday friends! This week I'm reviewing these SUPER COOL customizable rainbows by DecZ!


You guys know how much I love shoes so any opportunity to work with a shoe brand is a dream... not to mention the fact that they are local! DecZ is a Boston-based company who makes customizable rain/fashion boots. Customers purchase their boots and then choose from 30 pre-designed inserts, or create their own! The inserts simply slide into the boots, allowing you to change up the style and color. They also have a "starter-kit" option that comes with the boots and 3 inserts for only $89.97!!!

I love the idea of buying 1 pair of boots and having multiple options for colors and patterns. It eliminates having to buy the same shoe in different colors, and gives you the freedom to match them to any outfit! #win. The quality of the boots themselves are great - they're sturdy, and really well made. I was surprised at how comfortable they were right out of the box!


The process is simple. Remove the insert from the box and unroll it, then flip the top of the boot up - the part that's rolled onto the shaft of the boot. This reveals the "pocket" where the insert goes. With the notch in the insert facing down towards the foot, and the pattern facing outwards, simply slide the material down the boot behind the clear plastic. You can push the inside layer of the boot aside to get the edges of the insert to lay flat within the pocket. Once the insert is laying flay in the pocket, fold the flap over the top and close the snap in the back to secure it - that's it!



I obviously had to get the leopard print, and the black/whtie polka dots were fun too. What's even better - you can wear them without inserts and they look just as good! Since they don't carry half sizes, I would suggest sizing down - I'm usually a 7.5 in boots, but I got a 7 and they fit perfectly. I assume they'll soften a bit too with wear, they are a little stiff out of the box... but no more stiff than any other rain boot. The top of the boot hits in a perfect spot on me (I'm 5'7" for reference) and I really love the shape of the boot as a whole. I love the whole concept of these and will definitely be wearing mine throughout winter and into the spring!




Seeing as us New Englanders need to invest in all things "bad-weather" (Winter jacket, snow boots, rain coat and RAIN BOOTS) - these would make an awesome gift for the holidays.

Good news!! Use code GLITTER20 for 20% off your first pair!!

YAY! :)
