One Year Later

It's hard to believe it's been one year since the bombings at Boston's Marathon. In some ways it feels like just yesterday and in other ways it feels like it was ages ago. It came to the forefront of my mind this past weekend when I was out on my morning jog. It was so beautiful out so to keep it going, I went off my normal route and through Beacon Hill. I happened upon this window box that had running shoes in honor of the marathon. 

 

So today, in memory of those lost in last year's attack and in honor of the survivors, instead of focusing on my daily dose of fashion, I thought we should take a moment to contemplate the good in the world and how lucky we areto be here.

Shades of Blush


Outfit details: Vanessa Bruno blazer, Sportmax top, Max Mara trousers, By Malene Birger coat, Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag

Oh glorious spring days, how I love you. It's so nice to be able to wear no tights and lighter layers. On this day I donned different shades of pale pink one of this season's most stylish colors. This Vanessa Bruno blazer is the first item I've bought from this line and it's so well made and I really like the fit on me. I added more pastel pink with this oversized coat from By Malene Birger

Weekend Tidbits :: Signs of Spring

This past weekend in Boston was a glorious one.  The mornings started with a wintry chill but the bright sun warmed up the blue skies in the afternoons.  Boston has been my home for 18 years and one of the things i love most about it is how walkable it is. I walked the whole city on Saturday from the South End through the Public Garden, all over the Back Bay, over to the Seaport and back home through Chinatown to the South End. By Saturday's end, I was utterly exhausted but in the most satisfying way. Here are some snaps from my weekend's walks.
