Inspired by Food

Designers and artists are inspired by so many things around them– architecture, people in their lives, animals, and of course, food. The colors and seasonal flavors of food truly influence designers and their clothing and accessories. It’s no wonder why summer clothing is filled with citrus yellow and watermelon red, while fall is inspired by oaky red wines, pumpkins, and foliage.  I love how a Starbucks Caramel Swirl Latte can inspire a delicious pair of shorts like these cotton twill shorts by Emilio Pucci or the adorable Pink Jade Kate Spade flats that are bedazzled with watermelon seeds. One of the reasons I love to watch Project Runway is to see what inspires their designs in their weekly competitions.  It’s amazing how a true artist sees potential in everything around them.

Early Snow + Perfect Booties!

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! Being about 16 weeks pregnant, I am in that in-between stage for clothing where I do not need maternity clothes yet but my pants are getting a little snug. My go-to outfit has been a long, cozy sweater and stretchy leggings.
I love my boots this time of year and am in love with these soft leather Madison Trask boots.  The leather is soooo soft and these are seriously the most comfortable boots I have ever worn!

Chilly Weather Sweaters

It’s definitely sweater season in New England. As long as I tried to hang on to my open-toe shoes, it’s time for booties and sweaters in CT. One thing I love about cooler sweater is the ability to look cute while being so cozy in an over-sized sweater like the one I am wearing from H&M (below). This is one of my favorites with a pair of skinny jeans and booties. So simple yet chic. What is your favorite thing to wear in chilly weather?
