9 Favorite Floral Shoes for Spring

I love this spring's trend of floral heels! They have such a feminine flair to them,
and add such a pop of color to brighten up an otherwise dull outfit. 
Almost (except the Tory Burch heels) all of these floral shoes are under $150
which makes this fun accessory attainable!

Will you be rocking the floral pumps this spring?

Hunter Boots + Spring Barbour Jacket

Walking Kingsley has become a daily routine, a meditation of sorts. Every day
I put on my boots and jacket (and until recently my scarf and gloves)
and Kingsley and I explore our new neighborhood. One of our favorite 
things to do is to walk down to Whole Foods and pick up flowers and lunch.
It feels great to be able to wear a lighter quilted jacket and since I love accessories, 
a fun pair of earrings and necklace can never hurt. I received my Hunter boots (in navy of course) 
as a Christmas present and I am so excited to start utilizing them with the impending
spring weather. I'm also elated to wear my Warby Parker glasses. 
(fun fact - I am blind as a bat without contacts/glasses) so it's always fun to 
be able to wear an affordable pair of glasses while also supporting a great cause. 
There is a Warby Parker store on Newbury Street in Boston and after riding the tiny elevator to 
the second floor, you emerge into a room that looks almost like a candy shop, lined wall to
 wall with different styles of glasses. I loved it! A huge thank you to Lorna Stell, my photographer
for her patience and understanding while incorporating Kingsley into our day! He loves to be 
included in our photo sessions, especially since he loves to explore!

Zebra Jacket + Scalloped Hem

I am so excited (now that the nerves and anxiety have passed) to share my 
first "street style" photo shoot with you! Last week, after what feels like 
months of planning and getting the nerve to put myself out there and actually 
take pictures with a professional photographer (Lorna Stell, you are awesome!), I got all dressed 
up in my favorite outfit and walked around Charlestown in Boston what felt like the coldest day 
of the season! I wore my Milly Zebra Jacket (it's been one of my favorite pieces since college)
and paired it with two handbags to create two different looks. The first was my new
I couldn't decide what bag I liked best, so I decided to incorporate both - and they both
finish the look quite nicely! I am so excited I was able to make this a reality, since it's 
been something i've been wanting to do for a while now and I can't wait for the next one!

Caring for Cashmere

Winter is still in full effect here in Boston, and as I am typing this -  
snow is currently falling, creating a new layer of freshly fallen snow. 
Inside, we are all trying to stay warm, bundled with blankets and cozy clothes! 
One of my favorite materials during the winter is cashmere - and while 
I have quite a few pieces, they are extremely difficult to wash. For a while, 
I brought my cashmere pieces to the dry cleaners - 
supposedly this is one of the worst things for your cashmere. 

J. Crew has the most amazing delicate wash for both cashmere as well as fine silks.
Instead of sending these to the dry cleaners, these washes (and spray) help extend
the life of your cashmere and silks and make them feel and smell wonderful!
