Fashion Friday

And just like that it’s over


…and it feels so.damn.good. This internship has been a wonderful experience and I couldn’t be happier with the placement I chose. I definitely want to share some of my reflections with you, especially in response to my working woman mission. For now though, I’m going to enjoy this last day and spend my afternoon consuming pints of water, malt, yeast, and hops. PS: check out my man legs in Thursday’s snapshot. I actually ended up taking off the boots and…

Out to Sea


Ladies and Gentlemen, it is now warm enough for skirts with bare legs. I’m so excited to finally wear some summer-ish clothing!        But just when it warms up in Boston, I’m headed somewhere even colder….the beautiful and breezy island of Nantucket! Matt’s good friend has a house there and we’ve been fortunate enough to be invited to visit quite a few times while living in Boston. Memorial day weekend is when the annual Figawi race of sailboats from Hyannis…

A Night In


Happy, Happy Saturday! Yes it is. It’s so fun just having a day to myself. I’ve already gotten so many things accomplished and we’re meeting friends for dinner tonight! Last night was low-key because, after two indulgent weekends, we decided a night in was in order. Around 5 o’clock I started getting that itch to go out, but as soon as we popped open a bottle of Rheinhessen, the urge went away. This was FAB-U-LOUS. My perfect white wine and…

Scramble n Toast


Thanks for the interesting comments! I had fun reading them. Today was a great average day – I was productive at work, my lunch was great, I got my sweat on at spinning, I bought fun songs on iTunes, and I have a new hair dryer! I kind of hate drying my hair in the morning, but after three days of cold, wet hair, I’m pretty excited for tomorrow morning. And, I’m pretty excited for sun and the weekend. After…

In Style


Today I’m graduating with a Master’s degree in Applied Educational Psychology and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study in School Psychology. Normally, I would have been planning my outfit for weeks, but I don’t really have a choice today. I’ll be drowning in a polyester robe and a silly hat. Oh yeah, and a carolina blue hood….not my best color.    But, today’s outfit is not really about looks – it’s about what the attire represents. Apparently, the master’s robe…

Play Clothes


I’ve really enjoyed the break from work clothes this week. It’s not that I mind them that much, but sometimes it’s just nice to get out of the shower and put on a pair on jeans. It’s still not warm enough to even put away my down coat (ok, I like to be really warm). But, Matt took me to my absolute favorite southwestern restaurant for $5 tapas last night, so I took the opportunity to sneak a summery top…

Casino Clothes

Clothing Shopping Travel

If there’s any place for sequins, it’s the Jersey Shore…    I mentioned that I’m going to the beach this weekend, but not just any beach…Atlantic City! I’ve actually never been to Vegas or gambled (with the exception of slots on cruises), so I’m excited to see what it’s all about. I cringe at the thought of handing over money in a casino, but since a co-worker taught me the basics of Craps, I might just give it a try.…

Fashion Friday: Updates

Clothing Shopping

So, I left you guys hanging on a few things and I thought I’d give you an update. First, the running shoes issue. I actually took the Asics home with me and ran a mile on the treadmill. Something had changed. These aren’t the same shoes I’ve been running in for three years. They felt stiff and heavy:( So, I went back and brought home the Brooks!! They definitely feel different (in a good way), but I have yet to…
