Rock n’ Roll Valentine 

Jacket & Skirt, Zara. Bodysuit, Victoria’s Secret. Boots, Ted & Muffy. Sunnies, Banana Republic.

Valentine’s day is that one day when you can be extra girly and wear pink and ruffles and gorge in massive amounts of chocolate. I will be partaking in one of those things. Hint: it’s most definitely the chocolate thing. So, what do you do if you are SO not the ruffles type of girl. This a question with many different answers. My answer will always be, leather. I’ve always wanted to pair this patent leather red skirt with my cropped red leather jacket from Zara. Valentine’s just seemed like a great opportunity!

This sign has always reminded me of one special that meant a great deal to me. I read it with excitement and also sadness, but I’m always happy to see it. It reminds me I’m not a robot and in fact I do have emotions, despite how much leather I wear. Just kidding I’m super emotional. I’m just trying to sound cool. I cry anytime I watch ballet, or an old person drop something. It’s pretty pathetic. 

Okay, enough about me, more about outfits. I even took this look a step farther to get far far away from the edge of frilly girl. Over-the-knee boots! My favorite type of boot, if you couldn’t tell. Threw on some burgundy shades and black tights, because… well, it’s still February and it’s freezing in NYC. 

What do you plan to wear for Valentine’s day? I’d love to hear! Don’t forget Valentine’s doesn’t mean a holiday for only couples. Have fun, dress up and drink lots of champagne πŸ˜‰

P.S. No more roots thanks to Arrojo! Stay tuned for a full post! It feels so good to be a bright blonde again. I feel like myself.

Take a peek inside our visit to The Langham Hotel in Boston. We were blown away by the elegance of the exterior. What beautiful red awnings – Emily even matched in her new red coat. We walked through the beautiful lobby, and up to our room to find this adorable tic tac toe dessert platter, and a few lovely gifts including their very own “Langham Pink” OPI nail polish!

We were also fortunate enough to make it for Afternoon Tea. You don’t know tea time until you’ve been to The Langham. We were presented with our teas and a little hourglass to perfectly time our steeping. A few delicious mini sandwiches arrived, followed by delectable desserts. This hotel doesn’t mess around when it comes to dessert. Word has it they have a full chocolate bar on Saturdays. Be sure to also grab a cocktail in their stunning Bond Restaurant Bar.

It was so nice to be back in our hometown, but experience it in a new way. This hotel is in such a central location. We walked almost everywhere. Will definitely be back soon, and hope to make it to their home base hotel in London sooner rather than later. Thanks for having us, Langham!

Harps and Tulle

Harps and Tulle

Skirt, Kiki Riki. Body suit, H&M. Boots, Steve Madden

Random fact about me, I play the harp. I’ve actually played for 22 years. I keep it back home in Boston now, so while I was home I decided to play a bit. We got one really random nice day, like I’m talking high 50’s in mid January. Okay, I guess I should rephrase… it was one random nice day in the North East. (I actually saw a man this weekend walking in shorts and a t-shirt in 30 degree weather.) Anyways, I decided to bring my harp outside and play. It always seems way more whimsical that way. There isn’t much more whimsical than harps and tulle.

I recently got this long tulle skirt from KiKiRiKi sold at Foravi. This may be my new favorite brand! I saw their booth of new pieces at the FAME trade show and let me tell you, drool worthy. I kept the look simple since it is already a bit costumey with just a bodysuit and some thigh high boots all in black. Although, I think by now you know that Abigail and I are into costumes more than normal gear.

We actually have themed nights with our bestie Bex (who has an incredible lingerie line) just so we can dress up. Our last one was based on the movie Bring It On. Yes, I wore my cheerleading uniform from high school. If we’re talking about more random facts, I was captain cheerleader in high school. You may not be able to tell now because I’m so emo………… Okay, I just wish I was emo. But, I have a black harp. Does that help my case? 

My friend actually did some photoshop fun on one of the photos, which I posted on Instagram. You should check it out @WanderLustGirls!
