casual classics


This weekend marked my first Saturday night off since August. Needless to say I was insanely excited. We got up early and stopped for almond croissants from our favorite bakery on the way to the train and snapped a few photos. Then JD went home and got back in bed and I smiled like a maniac, clutching my bag of pastries the entire way to the office. 

I kept it casual (and warm!) in a simple black and white look made up of wintery basics: a cozy cable knit turtleneck, black skinny pants, and my trusty Sam Edelman ankle boots. While I love the idea of turtlenecks (they're pretty much built in scarves), I do tend to feel like I'm being choked an hour in. I remember wearing this a two years ago on a drive up to Boston and deciding with about twenty minutes to go that I couldn't deal with it. This time I barely noticed it and was far more concerned with all of the little white fuzzies it was leaving all over my pants. You can't win them all.

  1. Your cable knit sweater is so cute - I need one...maybe I'll find one today since it's Monday and maybe the stores won't be crazy!! I can't believe this saturday was your first night off since August - girl you deserve all the almond croissants you can get your hands on!! xo, Biana BlovedBoston

  2. This cable knit sweater is so pretty. Also, your jacket is a classic but also is a little festive for the season but isn't screaming Xmas. You look great.

  6. Totally on the same page about turtlenecks. I remember crying when I was a kid and my mom tried to stuff my head into them. This one, however, looks perfect on you!

    Happy Monday!
