Summer Scarf

I received this scarf as a gift in the fall and have been itching to wear it ever since! The light cotton fabric and bright hues made it the perfect accessory on my recent trip to Florida.


The sand dollar necklace, diamond bar choker, and Kenneth Cole cherry red belt were week long staples and complimented the scarfs sea-side vibe.

For this particular look, I chose to bring out the scarfs royal blue accents with a laser cut detail blouse by Mirado. A black pencil skirt (Rafaella) and greige heels (…me Too Shoes) complete the outfit!

Fantastic food. 70 degrees and sunny. Not a bad way to spend the work week!


Wardrobe Wed: Fire & Ice

Happy Wednesday from sunny Florida! One of the perks of my new job is that I have the pleasure of traveling to the sunshine state. Nothing better than escaping the Boston chill with a quick trip to Miami and Naples 🙂

80 degrees and sunny means that I can break out my sleeveless blouses and pack a cardigan *just in case* it gets too cool. In HEAVEN!

Today I am fully representing BU’s colors with a red and white geometric sleeveless blouse (with a white beaded neckline) paired with a simple black pencil skirt. I finished the look with a black patent leather belt and nude pumps.

It’s a pretty normal day for Joy today.  In student affairs what is normal really?!  Meeting with lots of students during appointments, assisting the drop-in students as quickly as possible.. is that it today? Joy stepped a little out of her usual solid color pallet and went with a print chiffon Ann Taylor blouse.  Joy Loves this particular print because the cream and brown floral design is set against a black background so she can still wear her favorite black slacks from Lord & Taylor.

Fabulous Fabric!

I promise to try and bring back as much warmth to New England as possible!


Wardrobe Wed: Tempting Fall

Joy and I are both wearing outfits that are much more fall than summer for this Wardrobe Wednesday. It may have been our recent finds over Labor Day weekend that are making us both itch for the crisp autumn weather.

My pieces:

fall outfit

Tan patent leather belt by Apt. 9;  Sheer silk & cotton shirt by Aikos; Metallic sling back heels by Issac Mizrahi; Maroon pencil skirt by Rafaella

The shirt is  light and airy which will keep me cool on this 90+ degree day!

This outfit screams, "Com on fall"!

This week kicked off the first full week of school for Joy. She has a presentation today so went with something that would be comfortable all day and give a professional vibe when conducting a workshop with her students.

Her pieces:


Green buttun up dress from Macy’s; Tan Chinese Laundry wedges from Norstrom Rack; Sterling silver tear drop earrings; Sterling silver bracelet with hearts; Silver Anne Klein watch with a mother of pearl face.

The jewelry were all gifts from her mom for special occasions.

Ready to tackle the workshop!

Safe to say we are both ready to fully immerse ourselves in our fall wardrobes!
