Stripes and the City


Happy Tuesday.  I hope everyone had a great weekend and, for those who celebrated, a wonderful Mother's Day.  I had the perfect day of laying in bed until 11am (yup), enjoying a peaceful cup of coffee, a great work out, an in home spa treatment (well, I gave myself a facial mask, but we'll pretend it was more exciting), and cocktails while face timing with my mom and family.  It was the perfect, relaxing day.  Now I'm back to the reality of chasing around two toddlers, while trying to get a millions things done during the day. 

If you read Friday's post, I talked about one of my favorite Boston boutiques, Shake The Tree, which is located in the North End.  When I was last there, I snagged this off-the-shoulder top, which happens to have all of my favorite spring trends in one.  I can't get enough of the stripes, off-the-shoulder cut, button up front, and tie detail.  The best part about this top, besides the fact that it's under $80, is that the material is very light weight, which means I'll be wearing it all summer long.  I wore this off-the-shoulder beauty when I was in NYC the other weekend.  I paired it with my favorite distressed jeans, then finished my look with espadrille wedges (which are a great Chloé dupe for under $60).  It was the perfect spring look for getting brunch, and exploring the city's lower east side.

If you live in the Boston area, make sure to visit Shake The Tree, as you won't be disappointed.  You can read more about the boutique in my last post, here.  Also today is the last day to enter the $500 Amazon gift card giveaway.  For details and to enter, click here.

  4. This outfit is the definition of casual perfection. I love those pants so much - I need a good medium wash pair with mild distressing. Pair them with that adorable and effortlessly gorgeous top and you've got one winner outfit! I totally need it all. Too bad I'm not closer to Boston!

  9. Sounds like the best kind of Mother's Day! And these are the best kind of denim! I love anything with giant rips - so this one is such a winner in my book :)

  11. I just love this top!! I bought a tie front one recently too. It doesn't have the fun OTS detail though. ;) The stripes are so great. Glad you had a nice Mother's Day!

  21. Glad you got to enjoy some nice "spa" time. It's important to take care of ourselves so we can extend it to those that mostly need it (I.e the kiddies lol). Would love to connect at http://the-wardrobe-stylist.com/2017/05/14/leg-workouts-for-women/
