Welcome to My Crib: Studio Apartment Tour

By | August 23rd, 2017|broke girl's budget, Color Me Fun, step into my closet|

Those of you close to me will know I hated my former apartment. The unit itself was actually very cute, but the complex was exactly the kind of place you have nightmares about when moving into your first "real" apartment by yourself. Rather than focus on the details of that, let's just chalk it up to [...]

Meet Me at the 19th Hole: Sydney Elizabeth Golf

By | May 22nd, 2016|step into my closet, uncolored reviews|

Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. While the combo of florals and springtime may not be anything new, why fix what isn't broken? The two go together like peanut butter and jelly. Cookies and milk. Bread and butter. Wait - why are these all food references? You know what else goes together that you can't find in [...]

Style on Lock: The Giving Keys

By | May 1st, 2016|#trending, step into my closet|

One of the most fun parts of my job is getting to see the new merchandise we receive before it goes out onto the floor. Recently, we received a huge box of necklaces. Normally I'm not as excited about jewelry as I am about clothes, but this shipment was certainly worthy of excitement. In my [...]

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

By | January 12th, 2016|broke girl's budget, step into my closet|

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

By | December 15th, 2015|broke girl's budget, step into my closet|

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!)

By | December 7th, 2015|#trending, broke girl's budget, step into my closet|

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 [...]

Colorful Friday (and Saturday!)

By | November 28th, 2015|#trending, step into my closet, to do list|

Black Friday is so overrated. I know - I'm one of the world's worst shopaholics and I don't shop on Black Friday. My high school girlfriends and I used to, but we went more for something to do than for the supposedly amazing sales. We would get together for coffee and saunter over to the [...]

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 [...]
