WEEKEND WEAR / STRIPES WITH LEOPARD
MILLENNIAL PINK / FUZZY SHOES
party time / @themissprints

happy friday, and happy first day of fall! i'm so glad the weekend is here, and even more excited that it's the start of my favorite season. bring on sweater weather! i've been doing some major window shopping this week, on the hunt for new fall goodies (yess end of summer sales), and found myself oddly drawn to these shearling heels. or should i say, fancy-pink-slipper-pumps. they're weird, right? but i really dig them -- they're practically begging to be worn to an impromptu party...

STRIPED SWEATER DRESS

there has been a familiar chill in the air here in Boston this week, giving me alllll the fall feels. so, it feels only right to introduce you to my first official fall purchase: the sweater dress. i stumbled upon this little number at Artizia while crossing through the Pru. after ohhing and ahhing, but ultimately leaving empty handed, i couldn't get it out of my head. this particular sweater dress has that ideal slouchy shape -- you know, effortless with extra long sleeves -- and the colors are perfect for the cooler months. i can't wait to pair this with leopard mules (what else?), or with leggings and ankle boots for a more casual feel.

HAPPY FOURTH

popping in to say Happy Fourth of July!! how is June already over? but seriously.

i've had quite the busy month both at work, and at home, and time seems to be flying. we're knee deep into our kitchen renovation, which has made life a little bit more complicated (i.e. washing dishes), but i can't wait to share the finished product -- hopefully at the end of this month. 

i recently bought the dress version of this Sandro star top and these gold satin sandals from Zara -- both were sale finds. i thought that together they created the perfect look for celebrating Independence Day, especially with a little denim thrown in. we're keeping it low key with bbq-ing and soaking in the sunshine among friends, exactly what this outfit was made for! how are you celebrating?

WHAT I'D WEAR ON A TROPICAL GETAWAY
GET THE LOOK / PARISIAN IT GIRL

this outfit is something i would wear out in the city: running errands, shopping or meeting friends for lunch. i am really on board with the frayed edge denim, and love how they look with sleek booties. don't even get me started on that fluffy polka dot jacket -- as you know i've got fuzzy outerwear on my mind -- it's perfection! scroll down for details on how to get this look:

THE COLLECTION WITH THE SNAKESKIN TRENCH COAT

happy Monday! i am lucky enough to have today off (happy president's day!), and am planning on spending it doing things i normally couldn't do during the week. like spend my morning blogging in the parlor, or going on a midday walk with foxy around the neighborhood. the possibilities feel endless!

rochas pre-fall 2017 collection | @themissprints

since nyfw just ended, i thought it was time to do another "the collection with..." story.  this is Rochas Pre-Fall 2017 collection, and it has a lot of great moments: the colors (yellows, blush, peacock blue, and elephant gray), ankle-strap platforms with thick socks, snakeskin, fuzzy coats, golden brocade layered with preppy turtlenecks, delicate florals, velvet, monograms and imperfect hair.

i was drawn to this collection partly because of the presentation. these photos are full of movement, capturing those awkward, but wonderful in between moments. an unexpected pairing with proper, aristocratic garb.

let's face it, for 2017 muppet fuzz is in -- whether it be a sandal covered in fluffy pom poms, or the warmest jacket you own. it's bright, bold and colorful. Rochas collection includes a faux fur coat in mustard gold and blush pink (keep on scrolling to see that one).

florals and animal prints are a classic pattern mixing combination. in this instance, it's gray snakeskin and granny roses. below is the amazing snakeskin trench coat that inspired me to share this collection in the first place. i'm officially convinced that every girl needs a statement trench in their closet, and a trench made out of this snakeskin pattern feels unexpected but timeless.

the red snakeskin used in Rochas' collection is truly beautiful. in my opinion, colored snakeskin can run a fine line between impossibly chic and tacky, especially if it's red. but here, it totally works. i especially love how this skirt has been styled -- paired with an effortless rose colored tank, and luxe velvet pumps.

WHAT TO WEAR ON VALENTINE'S DAY
valentine's day outfit @themissprints

happy valentine's day! i wanted to share this fun date night look -- with pink hearts, ruffles and tassels, it felt like a dream outfit to wear out with your love while celebrating love. after all, there's nothing more perfect than hearts and pink on pink for valentine's day. we haven't decided what we want to do yet, but since it's a Tuesday and it has been freezing and quite snowy here in Boston (aka: not a good time for shoes that are not duck boots), we will most likely opt to lay low. i still might wear the rest of this outfit though.
