It’s that time of year in Boston when we all want to wrap ourselves up in cozy knits and luxurious fur. I’m feeling for these looks and more this season…

When in doubt, I always reach for a pair of straight leg or boyfriend jeans, an easy, oxford blouse, and a great pair of shoes. This foolproof ensemble always looks effortlessly chic, which is what every woman strives for, isn’t it?

Forgive my absence from the blogosphere – I’ve been busy figuring out my new job and my new city of Boston, with little time to update my site… But I’m back, and here is a weekend look that took me to Newbury Street for a leisurely walk and smoothies with the manfriend. You really can’t go wrong with a comfy striped top, jeans, and a broken-in pair of loafers. What’s your go-to weekend casual?

Wearing – Lucky Brand jeans (similar), J. Crew sweatshirt (love this similar top), Steve Madden loafers (similar), Kenneth Cole bag (gift), Gorjana rings (here and here), Michael Kors watch, Presh bracelet, BaubleBar bracelet, and straw fedora (last seen here).

Which look is your favorite: work, date or weekend? Happy Friday!

While I make the transition from New York to Boston, my wardrobe is making the transition from Winter to Spring. I love to wear my cozy winter knits over a skirt or dress while the weather is still warming up. I added a pretty floral scarf for some color and kept my diva shades on hand for when the sun was shining! How do you transition your look from Winter to Spring?

In my Mother’s continued efforts to make me a hat person, I received this straw topper a couple of weeks ago… She discovered a website that offers sizes, thereby providing accommodation for my unusually small head. It’s not that I don’t like hats, I’m just not convinced they look good on me… However, one of my favorite things about fashion is that you can take risks, try new things, and if they don’t work then you can move on and laugh about it later. Although… Maybe my Mom is always right… I do think this straw hat and floral scarf will become go-to Spring accessories for me. What accessories are you dying to wear all Spring?

Wearing – James Jeans, Tunic blouse via Marshalls (love this one), Jessica Simpson booties (similar), Pins and Needles scarf (old, like this one), Hat (gifted, similar), Michael Kors watch, Gorjana rings (here and here), Bracelets via Gilt, vintage, and Off-Fifth

Suit Up Ladies

I think one of the sexiest things a woman can wear is a suit – when I see a perfectly cut suit with an androgynous vibe and covered-up sex appeal… I die. I am particularly swooning over short-suits for Spring (a trend that is still in motion from last year), which can easily be dressed up or down (note street style with Converse below). Plus, I love the various colors, prints, and textures that make an updated, modern suit for women… Scroll through this post for a little suit-inspiration for Spring:

Just thought I’d give you a peek at a typical work outfit for me. My office is conservative, so in the winter I have stuck pretty close to a trousers and blouse formula. To keep my personality, I layer on some jewelry, add a fun belt, or swap in some trendy shoes. Sidenote: I love that the weather is starting to warm up in New York, because it means I can wear my many trench coats. To me, nothing is more classic and sophisticated than a great trench coat. I look for pieces with a special detail like the color-blocking in this version. What is your go-to Spring jacket?

I describe my style as classic with a twist, so this is a pretty typical weekend outfit for me centered around the timeless formula of jeans, a button-down, and loafers. To add the twist I may wear a pair of leopard-print loafers or I may trade in printed or colored denim or I may add a whimsical touch with polka dot socks and nerd it up with glasses… you just never know

Oh, and if my coffee-cup tattoo isn’t a dead giveaway… I like coffee. Hope you all had a wonderful, coffee-buzzed weekend!
