Get the Look: Metallic Flatform Oxfords

By | March 24th, 2016|broke girl's budget|

I love reading magazines, but I won't read them until I can dedicate ample time and brainpower to actually absorb them. I know that sounds silly, but there's so much to take in throughout those pages! Needless to say, I sometimes end up behind on the magazine schedule. Yesterday, I finally read the huge March issue [...]

Love for Humanity

Last week, I visited one of my favorite hidden gems: Humanity Boutique in Lowell. My friend (and, you'll notice, occasional photographer) Katie grew up in the next town over, so she knew about the cute shop long before I did. She brought me with her to scope it out one day, and I immediately loved [...]

Hamburgers and Heels

Back in September, I bought two faux-leather jackets in the span of two days. While this sounds a little excessive, the two were vastly different. One was a black jacket with silver hardware and a detachable faux fur hood by Steve Madden. Although it was at Marshall's and therefore very reasonably priced for the item, I [...]

Fierce in Flannel

I've been a loyal Old Navy shopper since I was a little kid. My mom would take my brothers and I back-to-school shopping there every year, and I'd find everything a girl could need to romp around school in style. Just like every other American family, we'd get those annual Fourth of July tees there, [...]

Deck the Halls (in Plaid!)

While my original photog, Katie, was home for Thanksgiving, we reserved a day for photoshoots. It just so happens that I had purchased a few new items recently! Ok, so that's the case any given week, but still. The weather in New England has been unusually mild lately, which gave me the perfect opportunity to [...]

Cyber Monday

Happy Cyber Monday, everyone! This is the one day a year I give myself free reign (within reason, of course) to fill those online carts and ACTUALLY go through with submitting my credit card info. Did I say the one day? Maybe I meant one of many days. Whatever. ;) Since I'm getting a later start on my Cyber Monday [...]

Orange You Glad…

...I didn't make a pumpkin pun? ;) A couple of weeks ago, my friend Melissa and I went to Boston Hill Farm in North Andover. We had gone apple picking earlier in the day, but I wouldn't rest until we fit in another fall activity on that beautiful day! As much as I miss being [...]
