pink french connection trench coat

Happy spring! I’ve been dying to wear this light trench coat and it’s FINALLY slightly warm outside, so I headed to Boston for the day to walk around and grab some coffee and cupcakes at Sweet.  If you’ve never been, the theme on the inside of Sweet is basically pink – I fit right in!

Sweet is right near Post Office Square so it’s really walkable.  The tufted pink seats are my absolute favorite.  Not only are they super adorable but they’re super comfy to relax on for an hour or two!

Check out this blush trench coat by French Connection.  It’s SO well-fitted and is lightweight while being high quality.  I paired it with a white lace blouse, ripped blue jeans, and my new favorite saddle shoes by Eastland.  It’s definitely an outfit I’ll have to repeat, probably one too many times.

Manchester VT is located right in the Green Mountains.  It’s perfect for a romantic getaway, a relaxing/rejuvenating weekend, shopaholics, or folks who are into outdoorsy action!  The “small town” vibe is definitely there.  Some of the downtown shops close before 4pm on the weekends and restaurants close around 9.  However, the scenery is absolutely beautiful, […]

These last few snowstorms have been pretty brutal, but the silver lining is that I’ve been able to wear some of the coats I recently got!  This red J. Crew Peacoat is definitely one of my favorites.  It’s lightweight but wool so it’s super warm, and is a fiery red that goes nicely with either […]

  Anyone who knows me can tell you winter isn’t always my favorite season.  March always makes me a little antsy, but staying at the Kimpton Taconic in Manchester VT really made me love winter again!  I was actually so glad I was able to experience the hotel in a snowy season because it was […]

I (somewhat unexpectedly) got a dog my junior year in college.  In February, I went to the county shelter “just to look,” with the intent of checking out a purebred, fluffy, 3lb Yorkie.  Instead, I came out with a scrappy 12lb mutt with overgrown, dirty hair.  He was scheduled to be euthanized the next day […]

Who doesn’t love cheese?  When I heard there was an entire shop dedicated to it right near me in Salem MA, I had to try it!  I ended up bringing back Pecorino Romano, Prosciutto, and some super fresh Italian bread to my family (my dad is from Italy so we go way overboard on the […]

Visiting Portsmouth for a day is one of my favorite things to do in the area.  I probably spend way too much time restaurant hopping, but there’s such a cool array of food that it’s hard to resist.  A lot of the best spots have amazing water views, cool decor, and yummy cocktails.  Whether you […]

  Valentine’s Day is one of my absolute favorite holidays.  I love the bows, the flowers, the pretty good, and the pretty things that signify it.  It’s especially fun when you’re in a somewhat new relationship – you’re established enough to actually do something but don’t really have the pressure of reciprocating.  But for ladies […]

If life was like the movies, we’d spend the winter skating under twinkly lights or sipping wine in front of a fireplace while the snow falls outside.  But let’s be real: our toes freeze within a few minutes on ice and when the snow falls, most of us actually have to go outside and shovel. […]
