Quickie

Sunglasses: Celine, Top: DVF, Skirt: Missoni for Target

Shoes: Miu Miu, Handbag: Balenciaga, Necklace: J Crew

I spent the day yesterday prancing about Boston with my mother who was in town visiting.  It was nice for so many reasons.  I loved having her here, it felt great to have a day off and the weather was gorgeous which meant it was a perfect day for an al fresco lunch and walking Newbury Street.  It's back to work for me tomorrow after a long weekend and I'm dreading how much I have to do.  So, it's off to bed for me.

Fall Love Story

Zara jacket, Talbots top, J Brand jeans, Hermes belt

One day it's fall, the next it's summer again.  But this day was fall and I wore a new Zara jacket with the trusty J Brand Love Story jeans.  I love how they are fitted at the top and have such a great flare at the bottom. 

Chanel and J Crew necklaces, Celine bag, Hermes scarf

And you can kind of see them peeking out of the bottom, but I kept those darned Pour La Victoire shoes that I was annoyed about a few weeks ago (post here).  I hemmed and hawed, not wearing them in case I decided to return them.  But on this particular day, the shoes won out. 

YSL ring, Marc Bernstein bracelet

Brooks Brothers Evening for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation

Please join me on October 5 at the Brooks Brothers store on Newbury Street in Boston for a lovely evening of sips, nibbles and a great crowd.  Brooks Brothers is a loyal friend and sponsor of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and a whopping 25% of the evenings sales will be donated to the BCRF.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, the BCRF is a cause worthy of your hard earned dollars.  They donate over 90% of every dollar they raise to breast cancer research and I know, we have all in some way or another personally felt breast cancer's wrath.  I've been to this event many times and it is super fun, so I hope to see you all there!

Old and New

DVF top, Nanette Lepore skirt, Prada shoes

As you know, the other night I attended the event at the Nanette Lepore boutique here in Boston where they so generously donated 10% of the evening's proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  Never one to pass up a chance to contribute to such an organization, I did my part and shopped my little heart out.  I used to shop at Nanette Lepore quite a lot but there was a season or two that seemed to me to be more bohemian and a bit younger than what was right for me.  So quite frankly, I hadn't gone in there in quite some time.  It was a pleasant surprise when I stepped into the shop and found so many things that were right up my alley.

Kate Spade cardigan, Chanel bag and necklace, Hermes bangle, Louis Vuitton ring

This Nanette Lepore skirt was just gorgeous.  I love its whimsy and femininity with the lace and grosgain ribbons but in the off white and black it's still classic.  When I got dressed this morning, I pulled out this DVF top that I've had forever and just was the perfect compliment to the skirt.

It's finally Friday.  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend planned.  I have a long one where I'll be hitting NYC to spend time with my sis and my mother who will be in town from Florida.

Nanette Lepore - Boston Event Recap

Jennifer Pinto, me, Nanette Lepore, Elisha Daniels

My dear friend Elisha hosted an event at the Nanette Lepore store in Boston last night to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  And true to both my shopaholic and philanthropic natures, I bought a few items to be shared with you, darling blog readers, at a later date.  When 10% of the evenings sales are being donated to the BCRF, a cause near and dear to my heart, who am I to exhibit shopping restraint??!! 

I had the privilege and immense pleasure to have met both Nanette Lepore herself and her PR director extraordinaire, Jennifer Pinto.  If you haven't checked out Nanette's line lately,  I highly recommend you give it a look ASAP.  And whilst I know this is a line well known here in the states, if you are in London, Nanette Lepore has a store in Notting Hill as well. 

The night brought out crowds of people where I was lucky enough to run into a few very familiar faces (Boston Fashionista, great to see you albeit briefly) and also a thrill to meet a lovely blog reader who I hadn't met before (hi Melissa!).
