Every February I get sick. I know this because in high school the chorus had our favorite performance show in February and I would always be congested and sick for the rehearsals praying it would go away before the show. Well February is here (almost gone! but still here) and I am, naturally, sick. I actually thought I was going to sneak through the month without getting that stuffiness. I was feeling a little iffy on Valentine’s Day and it was a gradual and slow decline of my health from there. Flying back from Florida was miserable with the pressure!
I’m definitely on the mend, but still not 100%.
Maybe it’s the fact that I can’t breathe fully through my nose or the thin layer of tricky ice covering the sidewalks, but I’ve been dreaming of getting out of town. There are definitely trips I want to put on my bucket list (Paris is still there, of course, and Alaska has been recently added!), but I’ve been dreaming of just having a place to escape to for a whole month this summer.
It should be noted: This is totally just for fun! While it’d be amazing, we couldn’t actually swing it. (Plus, confession: I looked into it and a lot of rentals don’t allow dogs…)

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
Fall for me means tailored blazers, touches of corduroy, and cozy sweaters… @jcrew, as always, has us covered with all the classics! Shop my head to toe look with @shop.ltk #liketkit https://liketk.it/4iOR7 #injcrew #ad
When @beaconhillbooksandcafe lives up to the hype and THEN SOME 🐿️ ✨ I got a little tour of this special bookstore from the owner herself and I couldn’t be more grateful. There is something magical about any bookshop, but when one is this thoughtful it’s hard not to fall in love with reading all over again. @sisterparishdesign textiles, @farrowandball coordinating paint, bestsellers & classics commingled on curated shelves. A little squirrel mascot named Paige, with her own story and her own entrance and her own little Boston-inspired house hidden away in the bottom of a shelf. Every detail is perfect, especially those on the children’s floor, where little ones can enter through a tiny door and press a big red button to activate a model train that circles the space.
