With summer just around the corner, I have been on the lookout for new clothes and accessories. With our move from Boston to California, I found that most of my clothing was for colder weather. And with all my new Cali friends telling me how hot The Valley can get, I have been wanting to revamp my wardrobe with some summer necessities. With that being said, I could not have been happier to from this pom pom fedora hat from ILYMIX! I love the detailing of the playful pom poms and the metallic tinsel on this hat. It makes this accessory unique, while still maintaining the ability to match with various outfits.
WHAT I WORE
Tonight my boyfriend and I had a date night at a local Mexican restaurant. I chose to stick to the color pallet of my new hat, and build an outfit from there. I decided to embrace the California look by wearing shorts, a tank, and a long thin sweater. If there’s one thing I have learned about living in The Valley, it’s that it is hot during the day and cold at night. I wore my new hat with shorts from Express, one of my favorite purses from The Paper Store, and a tank top and sweater from a thrift store. I don’t know about you, but I love mixing the old with the new!
ELEVATING MY LOOK
Since I was wearing high rise jean shorts, I used a hair elastic to tie a knot in my tank top. This simple styling turned my loose-fitting tank top into a crop top. As always, I love to add some bohemian flare to my outfit by accessorizing. I chose to wear gold jewelry since there is gold tinsel on my pom pom hat.

Until next time,
Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. Mine was extremely productive, and has me feeling ready for the work week ahead. I wanted to share with you one of my new favorite vests. As many can tell, I absolute love vests, and just layering in general. This look is perfect for the unpredictable temperatures that New England has been experiencing lately.
Thank you for reading!
Happy Friday! If you live in New England, then you’re experiencing crazy weather! This winter has been a warm and mild one. All week long we were running around without a jacket due to the fifty degree weather! Last winter was completely different. Boston broke it’s record of amount of snow with 108.6 inches in total! Definitely earning us some bragging rights. However, after this unusually warm and sunny weather, we ended the week with a snow storm! How exciting?!
I woke up this morning and couldn’t wait to finally wear a scarf and my Bass duck boots! I love the cold. There is something so magical about the first big snowfall. The ground is pure white; not brown from footprints and plows. The trees are perfectly sprinkled with powdered, and look beautiful against the white sky. Everything looks peaceful. Especially when you have no where to go, and someone to stay warm with. After a short day of nannying, I grabbed my boyfriend and walked around our neighborhood. Boston was so quiet, with barely anyone out from work. Walking around this afternoon only confirmed that I am a winter girl at heart.
Being so in love with winter, I am all about the winter essentials and accessories. When I need to head out in the snow I always wear my Bass boots! Duck boots are big in New England; especially Bean boots from L.L. Bean. When there’s snow on the ground, duck boots can be seen on almost every pair of feet. I have personally owned both Bass and Bean boots. I find that the Bass duck boots are not only warmer, but more affordable. Furthermore, they have various styles and coloring that change every winter. I have owned blue leather, green leather, and now brown leather duck boots from G.H. Bass & Co. The only downfall to these boots is that they do not run in half sizes. This is a little bit of a problem for me, being a size 6 1/2. I decided to go down a size because the 7’s were too heavy to walk around in. Other than this detail, I love these boots!
Thanks for reading and enjoy the snow!
