The Classic White Tee

It was a beautiful weekend in Boston, and I decided to pull out my favorite go-to tee from Madewell. A year ago I decided to take the time to try a wide variety of basics to see what fit my body best. I’d been postponing the long hours running from store to store, but when I found this great version from Madewell, I wished I had a lot earlier! I wear it to death and since then have bought at least 2 to 3 others in different colors. The loose, boyish fit pairs perfectly with almost any bottoms, and I love how the longer length makes it easy to tuck into a skirt or jeans. I’d definitely recommend taking the time to try on basics to see what flatters your body type, especially if it’s a staple you plan on wearing over and over again!

 

Painted Pumpkins

I love carving pumpkins, but this year my family and I decided to do something different and paint them instead. We wanted to create autumnal pumpkins rather than Halloween-specific so they can be used past the October holiday and be a part of our Thanksgiving tablescape. I loved the end result and can’t wait to make this a yearly tradition!

The Statement Vest

This past weekend in Boston was incredible! I visited my friend and cousin who are both studying up there, and I couldn’t have had a better first Boston experience. The weather was beautiful and we were able to see parts of the regatta, among a lot of other fun adventures. I can’t wait to share more with you later this week.

I discovered this Dena New York vest in the Nordstrom catalog last month. I love vests for fall especially because it’s a great in-between piece when the mornings are cold and the temperature heats up over the course of the day. I paired mine with black leggings and Etienne Aigner boots I’ve had for a few years. I love how this mini Urban Outfitters bag pops against the black!

 

A Vibrant Central Park

I’m still in awe of these beautiful colors! I was so lucky to experience this gorgeous Sunday in Central Park. The weather was perfect, and everyone was celebrating with picnics, afternoon jogs, or simply sitting back and taking it all in. We roamed through the park and made our way to the Upper West Side, stopping at Peacefood Cafe, a delicious vegan restaurant that each of us thoroughly enjoyed. We walked around GreenFlea market afterwards while digesting and took an afternoon break back in the park, soaking everything in. A lot of times I’ll rush things in the city, trying to see/do everything because I know it’ll be a while before I visit again. It was refreshing to change up the pace — a perfect way to end the weekend!
