Have you been following Kate Spade’s sister brand, Saturday? The brand released its first collection last year, aimed for a younger and more modern clientele and producing products with a slightly lower price point than Kate Spade. While I have enjoyed following the brand over the past year, I recieve their email newsletters and browse the website every now and again, I have still yet to purchase any of their products. Maybe all their clothes are just a bit too modern for me..? But the other day while I was on their site, I was impressed with the collection of leather handbags. With prices ranging from $95 – $350, the bags seem like great pieces for someone who doesnt want to drop hundreds on the latest “it” bag. The pieces that stood out most to me were their crossbody bags. I love how classic and timeless they are. They look like a bag that you could continue to use year after year.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
This picture from Fabulous K is making me long for spring.
Last weekend I took a quick break from school and headed down to Boston to spend the weekend visiting my brother. It was so great to see him and to get a bit of a break from college life. Every time I visit him in the South End, I love the neighborhood more and more.
We grabbed breakfast treats from our favorite bakeries, Flour and the South End Buttery. I sneaked out for a little me time and had a great facial at Skoah, a company originally from Vancouver that now has outposts in Boston and Seattle. I have had facials at various locations in and around Boston and Skoah’s are some of my favorites, their skin care products are great too! On the skincare front I also stopped by another favorite store, Follain. The store opened this past summer and focusses on natural and healthy beauty products from US brands ranging from Tammy Fender to SW Basics. I stopped in to pick up some more Rahua Shampoo that I have been using since I first tried it a few months back. Follain doesn’t have a online store but I believe you can make phone orders. However, if you are ever in the area I would suggest stopping by-not only do they have great products but the interior of the store is also gorgeous!
Our weekend continued with a few more great meals; we had a yummy Italian dinner at Coppa on Friday and then went to one of our favorite brunch spots, Union, on Sunday. On Saturday we had a really fun time going to a Burins game, even though we were bummed that they lost to the Capitols. After brunch on Sunday I dragged my brother into one of my other favorite South End stores, Hudson, a fabulous interior design store (check out this old blog post.) I cant believe how quickly the weekend flew by, it was so nice to have some time in the city after being up in good old rural Vermont and so great to see my brother!
As much as I wish that we finally were having some warmer spring weather – it is still good old winter up in Vermont! Here is a simple Wednesday Style look.
The shoes would definetly add a pop of color to any outfit! They also created a fun video elaboration on the collaboration. The shoes would be a great addition to simple spring outfit of white jeans and a simple t-shirt.
Head over to the Toms website to check out all the styles.
I can not believe that it is already March, but I am definetly happy about it! I don’t know about you but I am ready for winter to be over and for some warmer weather! Most likely warm weather up here in Vermont is a still a far way off, but here is to dreaming ;)

I just recently came across the new clothing brand, Trademark. Founded just last year by sisters Alexandra and Louisa Burch is described as “a new American sportswear company.” And if your thinking the same thing I was, yes their last name does sound familiar. Their father is Christopher Burch, of Burch Creative Capital (or what you would probably know as C.Wonder and Poppin) and their former stepmother is Tory Burch, so the fashion bug definetly runs in the family.
While the clothing is a bit more modern than clothing I usually wear, I am really loving some of their accessories! For example, the simple and classic leather bags and the “wishbone” jewelry. I especially have my eye on the gold wishbone cuff (THREE). Check out their website to see the full lookbook and to purchase the collection which launched exclusively online but will later be sold in a storefront in New York City.
FIVE – The latest issue of Architectural Digest features the home of our favorite Mc-Dreamy (Patrick Dempsey). It is a modern and unique home that looks fabulous. I’m especially loving the walls in the living room filled with stacks of fire wood.

One of my favorite jewelry companies, Loren Hope, just released their latest collection. And as expected it is full of countless great pieces with fun gemstones and bright colors. Check out all their new arrivals or flip through the fun Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook!
Lately I have had my eye on simple and classic tan leather totes. I feel like they would be the perfect addition to anyone’s closet – an item that matches everything and would never go out of style. I have rounded up a collection of a few that I have my eye on.
I am leaning toward the Cuyana tote because I feel like all of their products are great quality pieces. I have a alpaca infinity scarf from Cuyana that is fabulous! I also love that you can also get the Cuyana tote monogramed.
Which one is your favorite?
