Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Flannel x Play

Prada_Banana Republic_Paige Denim_Dolce Vita_coverHere it is! My new fave, uber soft flannel shirt that I previously styled for work, now styled for play. With the cold temps upon us, (snow on Wed, eek!), all I want to do is put on the layers. So it made perfect sense to throw on a knit cocoon cardigan and I was as cozy as can be. Not to mention, I threw on another layer, the ubiquitous blanket scarf (not pictured) to make sure that the cold outdoors did not slow me down. Our target was C&B and our mission was to purchase the few remaining items on our registry. We then nipped into Cafe Jaffa (our first time) for some hummus and schwarma. It reminded me of our trip to Israel two summers ago.

Flannel x Work

Banana Republic_Loeffler Randall_coverI am a walking billboard for Banana Republic. As I started detailing the outfit for this post, I realized everything I am wearing (minus the bag and necklace) are all from BR!

Nasty Gal_Ily Couture_Gap_Jimmy Choos_coverThe t-shirt says it all. Wifey. That’s me! Since I have been back, people keep asking me how it feels. Honestly, I feel tired. All the running around and adrenaline pumping through my veins all the days leading up to our wedding wore me out. Thankfully, we had two days of R&R at the St. Regis Bahia Beach before coming home to Beantown. The funny thing is, getting married hasn’t changed much. Dan and I have been together for over 6 years, co-habitated for the past 2 and love each other as much (if not more) as we did before we got hitched. I guess we now have papers that make us legit in the Commonwealth and come this tax season, we can file jointly as married (that’s the budget side of me).
