Holiday at the Tannery

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

Dress: Porter Grey; Heels: Jimmy Choo -- both available at The Tannery

Yesterday's outfit from The Tannery was a great example of something I would wear to grab drinks with girlfriends after a busy day at work. Today's outfit is a bit dressier and something I can wear to a birthday party (just add a leather jacket), running around the office (with a blazer and flats) OR this year's company holiday party (paired with opaque black tights, a statement necklace and a cute wool cape). I love the colorblock detail and the flirty shape -- perfect for so many different occasions.


Curated at the Tannery

All pieces available at The Tannery (blouse: A.L.C.; Jeans: JBrand; Booties: Saint Laurent)

I've lived in Boston for just about seven years now and consider myself fairly "in the know" when it comes to fashion and where to shop. I'd visited The Tannery in the past but never knew until recently that they offered anything other than amazing footwear. Imagine my surprise when I learned that they carried some of the hottest brands (think 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone) and even some that can only be found at The Tannery.

The top floor of their Boylston Street location is dedicated to showcasing great pieces for both men and women. Denim brands such as Citizens of Humanity, Joe's, BLK and Paige are available in all colors and sizes. Great leather and tweed jackets dot the walls in between racks of killer dresses and blouses. 

I got to play dress up with a few of the newest pieces including this A.L.C. blouse and these ridiculously chic Saint Laurent booties. It's hard not to feel like a complete powerhouse with these bad boys on.

Hello lover...

Does the BF need a wardrobe overhaul? Look no further... plenty of cashmere sweaters and tailored jackets to get him ready for the long winter.

To see any of these pieces, head to 711 Boylston Street or call 617-267-5500. For a full list of brands available at The Tannery, please click HERE.


Leaf Peeping

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Kimono: ASOS; Tee: Gap; Jeans: 7FAM; Boots: Tory Burch; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban; Nails: Essie "Mind Your Mittens"

I took a quick trip home to Central New York this past weekend to visit the fam and peep some leaves. Unfortunately most of the leaves were past peak but the view of the Adirondacks from atop McCauley Mountain more than made up for it. Fall in CNY is one of my favorite things in the world. And this bonafide city girl never forgets her rural roots. Anytime I'm feeling overwhelmed or anxious, a trip home is the perfect remedy. 


Girly & Grunge

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Jacket: F21 (old); Sweatshirt: Old Navy; Skirt: Piperlime (last year); Tights: Spanx via RueLaLa; Booties: Seychelles via RueLaLa; Watch: Michael Kors "Runway"; Bangles: Alex & Ani; Nails: Essie "Skirting the Issue"

When I ordered this jacket from Forever 21 well over a year ago, I never imagined how much use I would get out of it. It's perfect with boyfriend jeans and chucks for Saturday morning errands or a skirt and girly details for a day at the office. I love the little embellishments on this sweatshirt (which, might I add, is on sale for $17!) paired with my grungy jacket. The juxtaposition is both fun and functional... who wants to look completely pulled together anyway?


Work Appropriate

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

Dress: Zara (old); Chambray: J.Crew; Heels: Pour la Victoire via RueLaLa; Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim; Rings: Stella & Dot; Nails: Essie "Skirting the Issue"

I ordered this dress last spring (yet another online impulse buy...ugh) and ended up majorly disappointed in the fact that it was way too low cut for my liking. Thirty days passed and I realized I forgot to return it so into the donation pile it went... Until this past weekend when I decided to give it another shot. I layered my trusty chambray underneath for a work appropriate but playful outfit perfect for our mid 70-degree weather today.
