Booming Fall Colors: 3.1 Phillip Lim Sweater



Hey Everyone,
Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. I was super excited about the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection that came out in September. I got a chance to pick up a couple of items to add to my wardrobe. There were some things that I wish I had gotten like the leopard print sweater, the gray Boom sweatshirt as well as a bag which were all on my wishlist. I did get a chance to pick up the number one item on my wishlist which was the Boom sweater dress that I converted into a sweater as well as the Sparkle and Floral peplum tops.

The first time I saw the 3.1 Phillip Lim Ka-Pow Pullover a couple of seasons back I instantly fell in love. When I found out about his collaboration with Target this past summer, I was super excited about seeing the different pieces from the collection. I was glad that the BOOM sweater dress was reminiscent of his Ka-Pow pullover.  I’m going to be honest, I personally didn’t like it as a sweater dress and it was overwhelming on my frame so I decided to modify it by taking off the skirt of the dress and use it as a sweater instead. It looks better don’t you think?

I am definitely enjoying my trip to New England. I hope you are enjoying the Fall as much as I am and if you don’t have an opportunity to see the changing colors, definitely plan to take a trip to see all the foliage change colors. Thanks again for reading and take care.

Visiting Salem: Light Layers





Since we’re in New England and it’s October, we decided to stop into Salem for a day. It was an amazing day taking the different places in town. We stopped in the Salem Witch Museum and learned about the history of the Salem Witch Trials, walked around Salem Commons, stopped and took in the beauty of the House of Seven Gables, the inspiration of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s book by the same name and even found a Waikiki Beach in Salem.

The weather was sunny but definitely more chilly than back home. I decided to just throw on my utility vest to keep me warm for the day since it’s in the mid 60’s here.

How do you layer in the fall? Let me know and share your tips.

Boston Adventure: Sporty, Comfy and Stylish




Hello All,
Hope you are having a wonderful week. I’m in New England visiting and decided to take a day in Boston. I absolutely love the city, its history, its architecture as well as the cuisine of the place. While in Boston, I like to take in the sights of the city, walking the Freedom Trail as well as the historical houses and places throughout Downtown Boston. While taking in the sights, I like to dress comfortably. I decided to wear my Adidas sneakers by Stella McCarthy. It’s fairly comfortable for walking around the city as well as sporty enough to train in. I figured it was perfect to the activities of the day. Also, enjoy some shots of the city.
