Quintessential Outdoor Style


Wearing: Ann Taylor sweater (70% off with code STYLE) | Madewell jeans (love these too) | L.L.Bean boots (backordered; similar Sorel pair in size 7 and more sizes in this pair) | J.Crew camp socks (only available in red) | Fossil watch

Phew, am I glad to have this day off! Not gonna lie, last week was not that great. I’m definitely going to take this day to relax and enjoy myself. Maybe I’ll even head outside to the park in this look (with an added layer or two).

Shhh don’t tell, but I’ve been guilty of going to the park and playing on the playground once or twice. It’s a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of school. And in case you’re wondering…yes, I am too old to be playing on the playground.

    Cable knit sweaters have been my go-to wear this winter, they're so warm and can be styled so many ways.

    This outfit is basically what I've been living in the past couple of days when I'm not at work (oops. But Bean Boots are a necessity in Boston), but you definitely make it look cuter!
