What You Wear to Shake Shack + Boston Weekly

Above: J Crew Boyfriend Jeans & pea-coat, Mother The Big Easy sweatshirt c/o Bloomingdales, Vans sneakers, Jerome Dreyfuss bag via Viola Lovely, Super Restrosun Ciccio glasses, necklace Anthropologie

 

 

Who: As in, who am I listening to. Florence + the Machine, What Kind of Man. So good to have you back.

 What: As in, what went down this week/end. 

Can you tell I am sick of dressing for winter? Seriously. It just needs to quit.

I am on winter strike and only buying spring clothing and fun items for a warm weather get away, for which we have yet to actually buy tickets, or obtain a passport for our daughter for. So you'll need to bear with these winter get ups.

Also, this happens to be what I wore out to eat Shake Shack with the fam. So I needed comfy, baggy gear to accommodate the amount of food that we consumed. I mean, at least I didn't wear leggings. Which I thought about. Seriously. It's gotten that bad. Though I did try to spice up this otherwise bland outfit with a fun necklace and my Mr. Magoo red glasses. I look slightly crazy, but seriously ready for Shake Shack, no? Behind these red lenses is a serious yearning for custard shakes and cheese fries.

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about. 

Join me for much needed spring inspiration and fashion this Friday at Bloomingdales Chestnut Hill! I'll be on hand from 1-3, spreading some Instagram wisdom, French pastry, and styling tips. What more do you need on a Friday afternoon, I ask? Friends of all ages welcome, as in, bring those kiddies! Full details here. Hope to see you there!  

You know my obsession with Swedish design. Well documented in the fashion arena. Extends to furniture as well and my friends at Lekker, who bring the furniture maker ASPLUND to Boston. Oh and be sure to stop in from Thursday, March 5 through Thursday, March 19 and enjoy 15% off all Vitra and Carl Hansen products. 

Did I mention Shake Shack opened at Legacy Place and Newbury Street this week? Last chance to indulge your winter blues. Both outposts will featuree Whoopie Pie Oh My, vanilla frozen custard blended with whoopie pie from our own South End Buttery).

Boston Ballet presents Val Caniparoli's Lady of the Camellias, through March 8th at the Boston Opera House. Time to elevate your date night.

SnapSuites Interior Inspiration

Images: Briggs Johnson/SnapSuites

 

So happy to finally share the gorgeous images of this interior project I recently completed in partnership with SnapSuites. Even more fun that I got to team up with the owner/operator sister-duo behind SnapSuites, the lovely Bettina Janco and Roxana Chiu.

First, a little background on SnapSuites. It's a luxe office center that leases private office space to businesses looking for a full service setting. Perfect for small start ups that need centrally located real estate complete with all the trimmings (think prime Back Bay location, fully stocked conference rooms and staff rooms, and the view!) this space is perfect for the individual or the large client that needs a Boston presence. 

I was invited by Bettina and Roxana to spruce up one of the private offices to show just how much potential these ample suites have and likewise, work some magic in the Media Lounge, making it truly lounge-worthy and cozy. 

The office was a snap to visualize as a chic space. Simply put, this is what my office would look like. Inspiration, done. Furnishings? All sourced from local favorites, from vintage to new, I scoured Crompton Collective, Homegoods, TJ Maxx, World Market, and Wayfair (who has a killer selection of carpets for a great price - totally on point). 

The Media Lounge already had great bones, but needed a few elements and accents to brighten it up a bit. Enter one very bold ikat rug (strategic print and color for high foot traffic), some oversize art, comfy pillows and bright greenery. 

SnapSuites didn't really require too much help from me though- the space has been a huge success and is rapidly expanding onto an entirely new floor (with 50% of the fresh space already leased and private decks for every client!). It was a joy to add my vision to this unique and immaculate space. 

Be sure to check out their site for more on the suites and all the exciting things Bettina and Roxana have planned.

Please Join Me: Bloomingdales Chestnut Hill, March 6

 

 

 

Hey Folks! Please join me Friday, March 6th, from 1-3 to your friendly local Bloomingdales in Chestnut Hill.

We'll chat spring closet reboots, styling your new gear, and how to perfect those instagram worthy shots.

Guests will each receive a cosmetics bag with everything you need to reboot your make up for the new season and I'll be on hand to help you shop. Be ready to fill up on ecliars and delicious French pastry while you shop (you do still have a few months before bathing suit season;).

It's almost March people! Time to get some fresh clothes and stop thinking snow, snow, snow.

See you there!
