I love the city. LOVE it. But with all great romances, I also hate it from time to time. There’s rarely an in between for me and the love greatly outweighs the hate. (Most days that is.)
This weekend was honestly filled with a lot of dislike. Despite the fact that the weather was perfection. I was more frustrated than I think I should have been. Everything was driving me insane. Big things, yes. But mostly the little, dumb things. People not lining up the right way in Starbucks, being trampled by fourteen fifth graders on scooters, the subways not running normally on the weekends, everyone (myself included) being late for everything because two miles can take forty minutes, people smoking on the sidewalks, dating and the city, a girl wearing see-through plastic wrap as a dress with a fake knife/blood in her chest…. I mean, I had pretty much had it with the city.
After tossing and turning all night long because of my anxiety, I finally dragged myself out of bed to get ready for brunch with a friend. I started the morning by scrolling through my Tumblr newsfeed. The Universe delivered exactly what I needed to see…
“… when it feels like You versus eight million Thems. But if you can break the crowd into pieces, and then break the stone-faced armor until the honesty spills out… the city softens…”

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.
