So as a lot of you know, New England has had some intense unrelenting snow fall this winter, I have been cooped up with crazy CABIN FEVER to the extreme! Out of shear madness, I needed things to occupy my time so I went through some old photos on my computer and I came across these photos from when some friends came to visit us this past Fall. I swear I think these humans look like they came out of an Abercrombie and Fitch add! And yes, they are all beautiful creatures but beautiful in the way in which each one radiates kindness, love, and creativity into the world. Each one follows strong values and morals and that to me is what beauty represents. A persons heart can radiate this beauty on the outside.
I have also come to the conclusion that Boston has some beautiful weather, especially in the summer, and that the worst weather always comes in the months of February and March. I am not a winter/snow person at all, but I figure if we have three more years before relocating, instead of looking at it as three more crazy winters, its more like 6 more months of cold, bitter, snowiness. I can handle that; two months each year sounds better than three more years of Boston winters. So Yeehaw, I will survive!
I wanted to share our Fall Frolic by the Charles River and weekend outfits! I love Fall colors and you can certainly bring Fall colors and style into the winter months. This is Zina below. She is a warrior princess who lives in a castle on the rocks. She enjoys rock climbing, writing, and swinging on branches in the jungles of Costa Rica. Her favorite past time is motorcycling around the world with her boyfriend Chris, (shown in the other photos). Her style advice would be to layer, layer, layer and wear jewelry that you love!
That large chunky scarf Zina has on in the above and below pictures is exactly something I am looking for to add to my wardrobe now!
Her outfit: Shoes are Vans; Jeans from Madewell; Long sleeve shirt from Forever 21; Sweater from American Apparel; Scarf from H&M
Below is Chris, one of my husband’s best friends from collage and Zina’s boyfriend. He is a doctor of all trades and can be found traveling the globe bringing his skills to third world nations. He lives in the castle with Zina and they spend their nights cuddling by a fire place.
Zina’s outfit below can all be found at American Apparel! She a frequent shopper there:)
Below is my hubby, Brady. He enjoys a fine whiskey, Central American rum, or anything of that sort…He spends his days saving lives in the hospitals of Boston and spends his nights playing poker or enjoying my nightly home cooked meals, in which he devours quinoa, vegetables, tofu, beans and lentils. His secret talent is using his toes as a weapon to pinch innocent citizens!
Jacket is from AllSaints.
I was having a particularly good hair day that night! And was excited to wear for the first time my new leopard print heels from, believe it or not, Marshells!!!!! The grey tshirt is from Zara and my jeans are Carmar highwaisted (purchased them at LF on sale!) LF has amazing sales a few times a years and the biggest selection of Carmar jeans, my absolute favorite jeans I own! The leather jacket and purse I picked up on a trip to Florence, Italy with the hubby! Word of advice: when you go to Italy bring an empty carry-on…you will not regret it. I call the picture below, my “half-eyed laugh”.
These boys are college besties who also played Water Polo together! What an interesting little bunch they are!
This Man and his Dog hanging out on a bridge, entertaining the world. What cuties!
That’s one of my hubby’s besties, Sean. His girlfriend, Caralin, was pictured above. They had just moved to Boston this past winter because she got a job with the Boston Ballet!!!!!! Sean and Caralin take long walks on the beach while he serenades her with lullabies. Pretty romantic I must say.
You are all so young and beautiful. What a lovely little bit of warmth! xoxo
That is so sweet, thank you so much! And yes, sending some nice warmth during these winter months!
