Fall Style Layers – ModCloth

I love wearing layers. Whether it is winter, spring or summer I will usually be in some kind of layers. But Fall is really the perfect time for it as the temperature fluctuates so quickly, especially in New England. You could leave the house in the morning and it will be 43 degrees and then come lunch time it will be close to 60. On days like this layers are really the only options, and ModCloth is the perfect place to find all of your layering needs.

ModCloth is pretty much one stop shopping. You can find anything from holiday dresses, to undergarments, to accessories, to bedding. They have everything in your needs and in a variety of textures, colors and sizes. And not only can you shop by style but ModCloth also lets you shop by decade which is a unique feature I haven’t found anywhere else. They made it easy for me to create a comfortable and casual Fall layered look.

I decided to keep my look simple and casual. For me this look is all about the Familiar Comfort Sweater, which was the first piece I picked to build my look off of. This sweater is everything Fall to me. It is cozy and comfortable looking and just has that vibe that you want to curl up with a book by the fire. Once I had the sweater the rest of the look just kind of came together. Next I picked the Tanks Very Much Top in case it gets unexpectedly warm, and the Bonfire Stories Tunic to add a little bit of interest. Paired all three of those pieces with two of my favorite kind of items, leggings and knee high boots, and topped it off with a vest and a tote bag. There you have a casually, put together look that is both on trend and perfect for Fall.

ModCloth has a great variety of  sweaters for any occasion that will help fit your fall layering needs.

Fanatics – Game Day Style: Boston Red Sox

There is nothing I love more than going to a Red Sox, Patriots, or Bruins game. I just love the atmosphere of a live sporting event (admittedly it is better when my teams are winning). And with every game comes Game Day Style and Fanatics is a place to help with that.

Fanatics is a fabulous website where you can find all of your game day style needs. They have everything from MLB hats to jackets to sweatshirts to accessories for whatever team of your choosing. They are basically a go to place for your game day style.

When it comes to me “game day style” I like to keep it pretty minimal in terms of the team logo. If I’m wearing a shirt with the team name then I won’t wear a hat sporting it too. On some occasions I will break this self imposed “rule” but not often. And I also like to be able to wear game attire out after because I tend to go out when the game is over. I thought about all of this when creating my Fanatics look and I also thought about the other thing we love in Boston, FALL BASEBALL. If the Red Sox are playing in October it means we are one very happy city (unless they lose and break all our hearts).

I first started with the New Era Boston Red Sox Ladies Cadet Hat. I’m personally a huge fan of this style hat. Actually I own one of these myself with the Sox and not the B on it. I love the easy military look of it which is very popular these days.  From there I kept it simple; white t shirt, boyfriend jeans, a boy cardigan and sneakers. A pop of pink for some color (a smaller bag to get through security) and the Boston Red Sox Love Print Infinity Scarf that I am completely obsessed with and need to add to my wardrobe. And the best part about this look, you can easily make it summer appropriate. Trade out the boyfriend jeans for shorts and lose the sweater, change the sneakers into flip flops…easy peasy.

So I’ve showed you my Game Day Style and how Fanatics can help you with yours. Now tell me what your style would be like?

Your Best in Vests

vests

 

My name is Andi and I have a vest obsession. It’s okay. I’m fine with it. I’ve made peace with this obsession and have embraced it. I’ve embraced it so much that I added two of the above just this year. It is now a way of life for me. It all started a few years ago and then got worse with my J Crew love.

Anyway, I like vests and I like styling vests. It is fun to come up with ways to wear them on not so cold days here in Boston. So today I bring you 4 vests I own and 4 looks I love, one for each vest. Some of the pieces in the looks I have, so I just love the idea of. But I promise you this, I will be wearing these vest a lot so I would stay tuned, and by stay tuned I mean follow me on Instagram.

On August 13th I will turn the big ole 35. Like any other normal 35 year old I like to make myself a list of things I am currently lusting after for my birthday. These are the things that are currently on my radar. I know, sometimes I still think I’m 15 too. 🙂

I want to customize my own Kate Spade Saturday Weekender bag so badly! I love all the options of making it yours. And the size if perfect for weekends away, hence the name. NEED!!!

Alex and Ani Wish List

I’m an Alex and Ani fan. I got my first one last year for my birthday from a friend (the Boston Red Sox one) and I have been a fan ever since. I now wear 5 of them on a daily basis and it’s easy to tell where I am from just looking at my stack.

Anyway, once you have one Alex and Ani it is a given that you will want more. And I want more. The hardest part to actually narrowing down when enough is a enough. Not quite sure I’m there yet. HA. Below are the current 6 I’m lusting after. Good thing I have a birthday coming up in August, right??!! 😉
alex and ani

1) Northeastern University Alumni: I’m a graduate of Northeastern…2002(YELP!) and I need to add this to my stack. I think I may have to make a purchase for just this one and do it soon.

2) New England Patriots football: I have the Patriots round charm as you can see in my above photo, a gift from a family member, but I really want the football one too. You know how I love my Patriots.

3) Boston Bruins: Need to complete my Boston sports love on my arm party. I’m surprised I don’t have this one already.

4) Anchor: If you know me you know I love anchors. Enough said about this one.

5) Best Friends: My Bestie and I really want this one. When we were younger we always got the Best Friend necklaces. It would be like an homage to our childhood.

6) Cocoa Glisten Beaded Bangle: I have a blue beaded bracelet that was part of my Boston Strong set I bought at Rue La La. I thought this one would be a nice addition.

What Alex and Ani are you lusting after?
