Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Weekend in the Berkshires

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Last weekend, my hometown crew and I decided to get away for the weekend (with two hubbies in tow). We picked the Berkshires, as it was perfectly halfway between Boston and New York. There was not much on the agenda, just a whole lot of hanging and catching up. Last Friday, the Boston crew piled into the car and off we went! Major props to Dan for picking the amazing place we called home for two nights. So here is my weekend, as summarized in a few snaps.

Last week, I hosted an event at the LIT Boutique outlet in Back Bay. In between mingling and sipping champagne, I did a little perusing myself. Slowly but surely, my pile behind the register got higher and higher. It was time to edit. I tried on each piece and polled the crowd: to buy or not to buy? Thankful that I got a unanimous BUY on this hot pink blouse because you know I love me a good flowy top (which Dan totally hates). It wasn’t until I made the purchase did I realize that my wardrobe was seriously lacking this bright hue! I know, crazy, right?

Last hump day, I got on a plane and headed to Washington, DC for a conference. Low and behold, while there, it snowed! I can’t seem to escape it. But once the conference was over, the weather took a turn for the better. Talk about perfect timing because I had extended my stay through the weekend. I enjoyed the alone time; no husband and no dog (is that bad??). I explored Georgetown on my own, popping in and out of stores to my heart’s desire. As I strolled along Wisconsin Avenue, I stumbled upon Massimo Dutti. I was pretty excited to check it out, as my Parisienne friend had introduced me to the brand awhile back. The store was Ralph Lauren-esque with price points comparable to J.Crew. On top of that, the store was having a sale (yay!).

My Weekend in Brooklyn & NYC

NYC Plane View

Two weekends ago, Dan and I took a mini-trip to New York. On this particular trip, Dan and I parted ways. He to the UES and I to Brooklyn. But each night, we would gather with our friends for dinner. We kicked off the weekend on a high note with dinner at Birds & Bubbles. I couldn’t join in on the bucket of fried chicken fun (oh, Lent), but the sides were ah-mazing! So here goes a quick re-cap of key highlights from my weekend.

Trendy On A Budget x outLIT Event


LIT Boutique joined the Boston fashion scene in 2005, with two stores in Boston (Back Bay & North End). But did you there is an outLIT location at 53 Hereford Street in Back Bay (entrance on Newbury St)? The best part about this location is that everything in the store is $100 or less. Now that’s what I call #TrendyOnABudget.

On Thursday March 12th, from 6-8PM, Trendy On A Budget teams up with outLIT Boutique to bring you an evening of shopping with major discounts. Event attendees will enjoy 10% off already marked down items, 70% off 4+ sale items purchased and 15% off all regular priced items. Light bites and bevvies will be provided.

I hope to see you then! Please RSVP to:
