What Snow?

It’s hard to imagine my relief the first time I saw a¬†whole block of sidewalk in Boston. I knew it existed underneath the mountains of snow and ice but seeing the glorious stretch was so satisfying. It meant spring was coming (even if it was still weeks away) and I could someday soon leave my apartment without gloves. The little act of leaving them in my purse was one of the best feelings.

This morning, I was finally able to put on shorts for the first time this year for a run. It was beautiful, balmy and I’m so happy the warmer weather has come in.

How to keep your winter wardrobe bright

It is officially cold in Boston. I can no longer stand to walk around in cute, light outerwear but I’m huddled into a giant sleeping bag of a coat with giant boots covering my legs. The only pop of excitement in my outfit these days is a scarf.

When it gets cold, it’s hard for me to think about dressing in bold colors. I start to go for the black wool, cashmere or really anything soft with some sort of insulation!

While it’s always sophisticated to dress in all black, I try to keep these outfits fresh by adding different scarves and shoes to make a statement. I love a bright scarf or a bold pattern like the leopard above to make the outfit my own.
