One of my go-to pieces are button up shirts; whether solid, striped or plaid, I have found that they are one of the easiest things to throw on and look completely put together. Typically I pair them with some skinnies, but lately I have been especially loving plaid with skirts. It's a great way to dress down a skirt that's a full skirt, metallic or sequin and dress up a cozy flannel. Two birds with one stone, my favorite.
This full black skirt from Express has quickly become a staple - especially with the flattering high waist & pockets (who doesn't love pockets).
Definitely one of my favorite Boston views, from the Cambridge side overlooking the river. I of course love Portland more, since it's home, but Boston is a close second and one of my favorite cities in the US.
In fact, funny story, in the photo below, the two twin apartment buildings behind me...my dad and stepmom lived there when I was a kid and that's where I spent weekends. I honestly didn't even realize they were there until just now. How cool is that?
Cheers to beating the Monday blues.
