I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Happy Freaking Spring! After the horrible winter this year, I’m welcoming the nicer weather.
This weekend is beautiful here in Boston and yesterday I felt inspired to make the most out of the nice day. I made plans to meet up with a girlfriend for lunch and beers outside at my favorite spot, Parish Cafe. I also decided that yesterday was the day to break in my new Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes that I finally bit the bullet on. You can’t live in New England and not own boat shoes! Never mind the fact that I’m not a boater…YET. If you build it, they will come, right? Get thee some boat shoes, become a boater. I see no flaw in this logic. In fact I could probably write this purchase off on my taxes next year as self-entrepreneurial business development.
I also wore my three favorite things because they made me happy–ripped jeggings, stripes, and camouflage. I threw a leopard print scarf in my bag for good measure because nothing says pattern mixing like every pattern you’ve ever owned vomiting on your body. I didn’t need to use it, which is probably good because that would have been overkill but I wouldn’t have cared because I was so damn happy about the weather!
For real though, to me it was the perfect outfit. Pieces that made me happy put on in layers. Ripped jeans, a light weight cotton shirt, and a jacket. My feet get cold easily and although I saw plenty of people in sandals, my piggers would have froze and my Sperrys were the perfect shoe for a Spring day.
If I didn’t just blog about this I might have been tempted to wear this again today…but I won’t because that’s just weird.
Love this outfit, and lit looks so comfy too 🙂
never met a stripe i didn't like
I love my Sperry's I think I got them at Nordstrom Rack. Those those ripped jeans where are they from?
I want leopard sperry's so bad! I love the outfit too, I love the camo and stripe mix.
Sperry's are a must in Boston. Love the look, and the weather has been perfect for it!!

Thats a really cute look-very Kate Middleton. Nice blog!
I love boating shoes! So comfy. And practical… y'know… for when I'm nowhere near a boat. 🙂
Hahah we did complain hard about the weather last winter didn’t we (I’m in RI) – little did we know this year would be atrocious!
Yes, Melissa, hindsight is 20/20 isn’t it? Praying for warmer weather!
Love that outfit, the army print and the striped tee go great together.
Thanks so much, Julia! I need another striped shirt because I wore that one to death. If only it would warm up one of these days!
