High Five for Halloween!

Happy Halloween! We have had a week full of everything Halloween. From parades, to pumpkin carving, gingerbread houses and trick or treat, we tackled it all! Here’s a look at everything that went on: 1) A Transformer watching a firetruck in a parade that hands out candy. It doesn’t get much better for this 5yo! […]

Perfectly Fall

I found this coat at LOFT last week and fell in love immediately. It’s lined and although it won’t be quite heavy enough for our northeastern winters, it’s absolutely perfect for the fall weather. Shortly after buying this coat, I saw this post from Cupcakes and Cashmere and was totally inspired. Granted it’s nothing out […]

Chicken Pot Pie

I love the way foods can be nostalgic. There are some that due to a past experiences I can never look at again (like banana popsicles that I had one too many of as a child) and others that bring back wonderful memories. This Chicken Pot Pie was brought to me one day shortly after […]

Loving Lately: Winter Coats

Alright gang, last week we discussed the way winter boots can disappear from the shelves by the time you’re in actual need of them. Well, the same holds true for your winter coats. Should you wait for the frigid weather to arrive, you just may be out of luck finding a coat that you can […]

Faking Layers

Fall layers are great because they allow you to add more elements to your outfit and enable you to create countless looks. What’s even better is when layering is made effortless. I had been admiring a few sweaters with attached shirt tails from JCrew here, here and here but then I ran into this one […]

High Five for Friday

Hey guys, happy Friday! After a week of dealing with a head cold I’m finally starting to feel like myself again. It’s unfortunate that as a full-time mom I’m unable to call in sick. My boss simply says, ‘not a chance’. My 2 yo came down with something similar as well but it amazes me […]

The Sweater

I’m pretty sure I’ve found the sweater. And by the sweater, I mean the one I am going to turn to time and time again this fall/winter. This cardigan is soft, warm and has details that I love including a shall collar and a double snap closure. This was what I decided on during last […]

Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup

I realize it’s not St. Patrick’s Day nor am I Irish, but I just couldn’t hold off on making this Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup. I love the traditional corned beef and cabbage dish and this soup took it to a whole new level. With a handful of vegetables and a ton of flavor this […]

Loving Lately: The Winter Boot

It’s true that I’m barely settling into fall and then I go and throw a ‘winter boot’ post at you. Although my hope is that we have a bit more time until the cold weather apparel needs to be broken out, there are some things that should be tackled sooner than later. Winter boots and […]

Blanket Scarf

I have a few scarves in my closet…..well, more like 2 baskets full, if I’m being honest. From lightweight cotton scarves for the summer to heavy blanket scarves for the winter and everything in between, they are the perfect accessory to have on hand. This scarf was purchased from Zara last year and after it […]
