I’ll never forget how excited I was as a child to flip through the Disney costume catalog and pick out my Halloween costume for the upcoming year! So whether you’ve been counting down the days to Halloween, or are just starting to think of a costume here are costumes that you can make from everyday clothing items! (Also feel free to check out my two posts last year on fun costumes to try! 1 & 2)
My mother always loves to tell this story about a flight she took with her friend and how her outfit made all the difference. She decided to don a Navy blue dress, cute pumps, and do up her hair, while her friend opted for the ‘I rolled out of bed’ sort of a look. While both of the woman were the same age, my mother was constantly asked by the stewardess if she needed anything, and almost ignored her friend! Airport style may be different from the by gone Pan Am days, but dressing for success always applies when traveling. So keep it cute, keep it comfy and read on to see the perfect airport outfit for you!
This week was quite a busy one! From working to getting ready for a wedding this weekend, I chose to spend my day off searching for the perfect dress!
I started by walking down Newbury street, and happened by Betsy Johnson’s store. Unfortunately the store is going out of business, but for those of you living in the Boston area you should stop by the store for some cute clothes with serious bargains! I just had to try on this adorable tutu style dress. While it was too much for the wedding, I’m still thinking of getting it. I mean, you can never have too many tutu dresses!
This second dress was a fun find from Oona’s in Harvard Square. The store was set up like a wonderfully decorated vintage closet! I loved the color and cut of this dress,and felt like such a Disney Princess!But, it was sadly a bit too long for the event. But I will be back to Oona’s for some of their adorable vintage dresses and jewelry.
Lastly I found this dress, and will be wearing it with a pair of pale blue kitten heels and blue flowers. I’ll be posting pictures later this weekend!
Do you have any fun plans for this weekend? Let me know in a comment below!

I know I’ve already written posts on how to dress for an interview or a day at the job, but for those of you working at a retail or customer service job, sometimes pencil skirts and blazers are not an option. This summer I was lucky enough to get a job working for a boating company in Boston, and like many summer jobs, they have a basic uniform formula of blue polo+khakis+white shoes. While these uniforms will allow you to look uniform and professional, they can sometime smother your style….but not to fear! This post will show you how to add a bit of your own style to your job’s uniform this summer!

Here are some sample outfits and tips for what to wear under that cap and gown!
For those of you outside of the New England area, today is Marathon Monday! Aside from me not having classes, thousands of runners have flocked to Boston to compete in this 80 degree heat! At first I thought of writing a post inspired by the marathon….
