I’ve been so inspired by all things nautical lately, I feel like I should start this post with “Ahoy, Mateys!” :) Nautical fashion inspiration seems to be everywhere these days. I swear I’ve gotten half a dozen emails in the last week or so alone with nautical inspired style. Everything is navy, coral, red, and blue, and has anchors or knotted rope. Old Navy is full to bursting with all things nautical, preppy too, and everything was striped and navy [...]
Every once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.

The search has been on going, to say the least, because I couldn’t find an option where I loved both the fit and the color.

Fall is (maybe) finally settling into New England. Yesterday was the first really blustery, chilly, cold day, and of course, it’s the day I decide to finally style my DIY gold polka dot jeans . I had the outfit planned days ago in my head, but I didn’t put the pieces together until yesterday morning. My cute TOMS flats and loose fitting, flowy LOFT top did not ward off the cold at all. I froze my butt off!! And yet somehow managed to still get [...]
