Just when we thought the late summer, early fall (you know, the days that are too hot to function…) outfits were all done, I find these photos from our trip to Martha’s Vineyard hiding away on my desktop. Go figure.

I do promise that these are the last “out-of-season” photos I have up my sleeve and that we’re going to be in full fall mode moving forward. What’s even better than pushing out cool weather content? Having temperatures that reflect the outfits so many of us are pushing on our blogs and social media channels. YUP, you heard that right, Boston is finally experiencing the weather we all know and love – Sweater weather. Cuffing szn. Etc. Etc.

Let’s get caught up.


We’ve officially been in our apartment for a little over a month 🎉 It’s been so nice to be able to walk to work, get into our own routine sans-Craigslist roommates, and make our space our own. Our new apartment is so cute but definitely needs some TLC so we’re excited to be tackling a few projects to give it the face life it so desperately needs. So far, we’ve fixed a major wall issue in the living room, patched some cracks, striped the windows (and repainted them), and gave the living room a fresh coat of paint. Next on the list?

  • Paint the bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom
  • Swap out the ceiling light in the living room
  • Add some art to the walls
  • Swap out the kitchen cabinet pulls
  • Order a full length mirror and chair for living room

We’re hoping to get the bedroom painted and order a few different cabinet pull options this weekend. Slow and steady.

We’ve also had the worst luck ever with our couch, which been absolutely awful. It’s been 10 weeks and still no exact date as to when the couch will be in space (fingers crossed it’s in by the end of the week 🤞 Stay tuned!

After having “grow email list” on my to-do list for approximately 297029572 weeks, I have FINALLY launched my newsletter! At first I was going to have a set day that it goes out each week, but I thought it would be fun to switch it up week to week to keep everyone on their toes. Also, who doesn’t love a mid-week surprise?!

I’m so excited I finally crossed the project off my to-do list and have loved how supportive you have all been!! I have some fun content planned for the next couple of weeks, so make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out!

THE 9-5.

I’ve taken on a lot of responsibility at my 9-5 recently and we’ve been going through quite a lot of changes (all good!) that I’m really excited about. Things have been busy (when aren’t they?!) but I am overwhelmed and busy in the best way possible.

What have YOU been up to?

    When it comes to this outfit, I can easily see it transitioning into autumn! Add a jacket or cardigan and a pair of booties instead, and you’re good to go. Great basics to have on hand. I’m so excited to see your new home as it transforms into something beautiful and more YOU. Also LOVING your newsletter. I was so stoked to sign up the second you announced it, and I look forward to when it arrives in my inbox!
