Harborside Style

Bomber jacket: Topshop | Turtleneck: Primark (similar) | Skirt: Topshop | Combat boots: Steve Madden | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Belt: ASOS | Beanie: Brandy Melville (similar) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Boston Harbor is one of my favorite spots to visit in the city. It's beautiful, peaceful, and perfect for pictures. Taking a walk along the harborside is a nice escape from the busy city streets and a change of scenery. I forget I'm in Boston as I look across the water and watch the boats float off into the distance. 

As it still gets breezy down by the harbor this time of year, I wore a light turtleneck sweater, bomber jacket, denim skirt with tights, combat boots, and beanie to keep warm. Dressing in layers is key during the springtime, especially in Boston, where the weather is unpredictable. One thing I can always count on is a stunning city skyline.

The Bomber Jacket

Bomber jacket: Topshop | Jeans: Topshop | Top: Brandy MelvilleSneakers: Adidas | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

My bomber jacket has become my outerwear go-to lately. I will wear it with anything, but especially love styling it with an all black outfit like this one. I'm not a big sports fan, but I do love adding a sporty element to my outfits from time to time to make my look a bit more casual and suitable for rushing around the city. My Adidas 'Stan Smiths' contribute to the street style feel and add texture to the look with their shiny, python print pattern. This outfit wouldn't be complete without a structured mini bag that surprisingly fits more than the essentials and my Ray-Bans 'Clubmasters.' Bomber jacket + simple tee + jeans + sneakers = my new spring uniform.

The Style List | February and March 2016

These are my favorite jeans ever.  I have them in petite length and they are the best. They can be dressed up or down effortlessly, day or night. I've worn them with everything from a blouse and blazer to a crop top. 

As dramatic as it sounds, this bomber jacket honestly changed my life. It was a birthday present and I've been wearing it non-stop ever since. The Pink Ladies vibes are real. Amazing piece, amazing quality. 

I've had this bag for a couple years now and it is never not a favorite of mine. It never fails to complete any outfit. Highly recommend. 

This was in my January Style List as well and it continues to be a go-to accessory of mine. Festival season is here, and even though I'm not Coachella-Boston Calling-Bonnaroo-bound, I'll still be rocking it.

I had been lusting after the Stan Smiths for months are was so excited to get these for my birthday. They're incredibly hard to come by and I love how this black snakeskin print pair is different from the white and green version. These sneakers tie any look together. 

Zara off-the-shoulder dress (sold out)
This dress had ben hanging in my closet for months. I bought it last summer and only wore it once to College Fashion Week. In February and March, I got a lot more wear out if it. It's fantastic what can happen when you shop your closet! I can't wait to style it for the spring and summer months. It would look great with a pair of Converse or Stan Smiths. 

Zara striped shirt (sold out)
There is something timeless about a blue and white striped shirt. It adds a relaxed element to any outfit. I love to wear mine with black clothes for a cool contrast. 

These shoes are a staple in my wardrobe. I have gotten so much wear out of them. I dress them up or down, with dresses or jeans. They're perfect all year round. 

Another piece that was in my January Style List and will be a forever favorite. I wear this watch with everything. It's become a part of my signature accessories look. 

Thrifted straight-leg jeans
Nothing is better than a pair of thrifted jeans. I found mine at Savers and they are a go-to on days when I want to be comfortable and casual. I'm always wearing these with some sort of sneaker. If you're looking for lived-in denim, thrift stores are the place to shop.
