OOTD: Winter – Spring Transition

DSCN0017

You’d never know that it was meant to be springtime in Boston. We had snow this weekend and it’s yet to reach 50 degrees.

As much as I’m dying to incorporate some spring items into my wardrobe, it’s just not feasible quite yet. I’ve been reaching for striped shirts and throwing my faux fur gilet over top for both warmth and style. I got mine from Forever 21 at the start of winter, but Topshop still has a few good options left. And don’t worry about buying one in spring, as faux fur always comes back into trend once cold weather hits. (more…)

Spotlight: Uniqlo

I first heard of the Uniqlo brand when I was living in London. There was a store right on the High Street and I always loved perusing around for the great minimalistic pieces that the store offers. Thankfully they’ve just built one near me here back in the US and I’m loving it. Their pieces are chic, high quality, and affordable. It’s a great place to hit up for basics, both professional and weekend wear.

Here are my top pics from Uniqlo to update your wardrobe for the spring season:

Flatforms

Have to say, this wasn’t a trend I saw myself getting on board with. For starters, I’m 5’9 and while I love being tall, I tend to try and stay away from shoes that are going to have me towering over my friends. Secondly, platforms always reminded me of bad 1970s disco films. That is, until I saw the ones from Stella McCartney. Pictured above, they just scream chic while still remaining eccentric and quirky, which means that they have my name written all over them. I saw a pair at Bloomingdales this past weekend and couldn’t help but squeal with delight. One thing I’m not all about though, is the $1,000+ price tag that they babies have – eeps! Luckily for me (and you!) I was able to snag a great pair of lookalikes from Dolce Vita for only $90.

Really comfortable (I did have to go down half a size though due to my feet slipping in the back), the flatforms add a certain chic-ness to any outfit. Skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans both look fantastic with them, and if you’re really ready to get on the 1970s bandwagon, a pair of flared jeans would be right on trend!

Everyday Makeup

Hello loves! So today I’ll be talking about what you can find in my everyday makeup bag. I don’t know about all of you, but I absolutely love peeking into other people’s makeup bags. I love seeing what they love and what works for them. Recently I’ve been really happy with the contents of my own makeup bag – I’ve finally found my HG foundation and I don’t think I’ll beĀ changing my eyebrow products for a VERY long time!

I usually go for a pretty simple look and these products have become my staples. I’ll review them in order of how I apply them to my face – happy reading!

& Other Stories New Campaign featuring Meryl Streep’s daughters

Okay first of all, I am SO glad that &OtherStories has finally made it’s way to the US. When I lived in London, I would make my way to the Oxford Street brick and mortar store almost every other week to fawn over their ridiculously chic and minimalist clothing and accessories. I was especially fond of their sweaters and jewelry, and was gutted to realize that I wouldn’t be able to shop one of my all-time favorite brands once I returned home to Boston. THANKFULLY though the H&M-owned company has opened a store in NYC and has made a website for US customers (HIP HIP HOORAY!!).

This season’s campaign features MERYL STREEP‘s three daughters and they are all perfect carbon-copies of their famous and insanely gorgeous mother. All three girls are rocking natural-textured and no-fuss hair (which I can DEFINITELY get behind) and are decked out in simple jeans and blouses, with statement bags completing their simple looks.

Here are what I’m currently craving from &OtherStories:
