MY NEW FAVORITE JEANS I’M OBSESSED WITH

I hope you guys had a great weekend and you’re having a good wee!! Yesterday in Boston we had 65 degree weather, today was 70 degrees, and oh my gosh has it been glorious! It’s crazy to me just how much the weather plays a part in your daily mood (or at least mine). I made myself take a break around lunch time and went out for a walk and everyone looked so happy! It was amazing. Too bad tomorrow it’s going to snow! Nope, not joking. Also, I feel like I haven’t talked to you guys in a while so I thought I should give you a life update or at least what I’ve been up to lately!

I went home over the weekend and stayed at one of my absolute favorite hotels – 250 Main Hotel that I did a post on here last year. You can also see a couple of my Instagrams from over the weekend here and here. Geoff surprised me with a stay for a Valentine’s Day present which was amazing! It’s a luxury boutique hotel and every single room is different. There’s art everywhere that I’m pretty sure you can buy if your heart so desires to! But seriously, everything about this place is amazing. The staff are so friendly, they have a wine and beer social every night (complimentary drink!), a lobby that you’ll want to hang out in for hours (with lots of fun games), the beds are clouds, and the views you guys! So, so great. If you couldn’t tell, I could go on for hours. If you’re local to Maine or New England, or if you’re hoping to visit, you absolutely have to make a stay here part of your itinerary! Tell them I sent you ๐Ÿ™‚ !

We had planned to go up sort of last minute because one of my younger brothers (he’s 16) had a big high school basketball game for the Maine high school basketball tournament going on right now, so we went up to support him! Also, another update… this is a big one and one I’m so excited about – My family (well ok, my parents) are getting a PUPPY! It was a complete surprise to me. I just found out about it over the weekend when I went home and she will be flying into Boston from Seattle (I think) on Thursday (tomorrow)! Our family dog passed away extremely unexpectedly at the end of September… just one day before I was going home, so it’s been sad and rough dealing with life without her. Don’t you guys feel like pets are part of the family? But anyways, my parents finally feel ready, so it will be exciting! Anyone have name suggestions for a female dog?! Leave me a comment! I would love to hear your suggestions ๐Ÿ™‚ ! But now, onto the outfit!

Hiiiii everyone! It has been SO long since I’ve written anything on the blog, and I never want to go this long again! During the holidays I had so much creativity flowing. I literally didn’t have enough time to create all the posts I had ideas for because there were so many. Then Christmas and New Year’s came and went and I was left feeling completely uninspired (and tired). I feel like getting back in the swing of things after the holidays is always a challenge. Anyone else? Also, still trying to navigate my new life that is working a lot more hours than I used to work for my teaching job (which means a lot less time to work on the blog). I’m not one to make excuses so I will always find time to make this work. It just takes a bit more planning on my part!

I recently shot with Rachel Leiner of Rachel Leiner Photography and oh my gosh, I was SO happy with how these photos came out. What you would never know until you meet Rachel is that she’s a college student so this is her side gig. Like seriously, wouldn’t you think by looking at her work that she’s been doing this for decades?! She’s so talented, and I highly recommend her if you’re located near Boston and need photography.

Hi guys! Hope you had a great weekend. I went to Southern Maine on Saturday for a college friend’s housewarming/engagement party and it was so much fun. It was the first time our entire friend group had been together since our other friend’s wedding a couple summers ago. As you get older it seems so difficult to get the whole crew together! Anyways, it was a great time catching up over drinks and What Do You Meme. Have you guys played? So hilarious. We were seriously cracking up all night. Just don’t play with your parents, grandparents, or anyone you wouldn’t want to say dirty words in front of haha.

Geoff and I decided to spend the weekend in Portland and get a hotel so that was so much fun. I always have in my head that I’m going to take so many outfit photos and get so much blog content whenever I visit a place I haven’t been in a while. Honestly though, it was so insanely cold that I had zero interest (think negative degree temperatures). I didn’t even open my DSLR camera that I brought, but it was actually a much needed break. I put a lot of pressure on myself (like to the point of tears) to constantly be creating blog content over the weekend because I no longer have time to do so during the week with my new full time job. I’m slowly learning that I need to chill out and just enjoy the moments with my loved ones and friends and need to not always be thinking about my next chance to take photos for the blog. Any other bloggers that read here that struggle with this? Sooo since negative temperatures meant there was no way outfit photos were happening this week, I thought it might be fun to share some clothing items I’ve purchased lately, been gifted for Christmas/birthday, etc. Keep reading for my winter closet additions + what I think is worth it or not worth it!
