Winter Blues

If you’re insanely happy that it’s Friday say HEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYYY

This week was long. And today to top it off I attempted to learn something at my piano class that my brain understands, but my fingers not so much. Piano can be stressful y’all.

So…

I found these jeans at Primark, here in the US we only have one (and it’s in Boston, WHAT!!) and I had to swallow my words when I found these black jeans. Why? I had said to a friend I could never find clothes that I liked at Primark, only accessories/stuff for your home. Then those jeans fit me perfectly, and if you are petite you know the struggle is real when it comes to pants.

This is my comfy-yet-put-together winter outfit for when it’s not freezing, which was the case during picture day. It’s been uncommonly warm here in Boston. I swear.

My theory is that if you have a nice jacket and lipstick you can kind of get away with wearing anything and it will look nice.

Have a nice freakin’ weekend everyone, you deserve it!

Let’s Talk

Living in Boston has its perks, winter snow storms are one of them. For pictures, because for anything else it doesn’t work as a perk, see: commute.

Winter Storm Day equals…

  • Curling my hair with Conair Infiniti Pro Curl (curls lasted through the storm pictures, so you know it’s real)
  • Catching up on French homework (Je me détends tous les Samedis)
  • Watching Fixer Upper with Chip and Jojo!
  • Making sure my ankle is 100% better, I’m finally back to working out y’all!
  • Taking some time to think of habits that I currently have but that may not be helping me get to where I want to be. We all have those, and battling them is exactly this: a battle. Eating better and stressing out less (with others and myself) are two of mine.

Boston keep being awesome ❤

Cafe Madeleine

What is the best way to start your day? Coffee.

What is the best way to spend your afternoon? At a coffee house.

I’m a big believer in both of these statements, and so today’s OOTD comes to you at one of the cutest coffee shops I have seen in Boston so far: Cafe Madeleine.

I was never big on wearing hats, but this floppy style makes me feel a cool-boho-chic-LA-girl kind of vibe (even though I live in a New England weather), so this winter me and my hat are really vibing.

I came back to Madeleine one of these days with a friend, and it has become one of my favorite spots already in Boston, but it is kind of tiny (which means no privacy), so my tour of coffee houses shall continue.

The black-maroon-white-gray color palette also has become my best friend this winter, and YES for finding maroon leggings. It’s not pants you say? It’s ok, still makes me happy.

Hope you are all having such an amazing week!

PS: If you’re in Boston, the tile floors at Madeleine are SO Insta worthy!

Above Zero

Hi how’s it going,

This is my second week of classes and I absolutely love everything that I’m studying now, French is a bit harder than last semester but still beautiful, Rock History is tons of fun, and Communication and Gender is intense, in a good way.

Aaaaaalso, it is cloddish here in Boston, which means more winter outfits! Not super cold so far that I need like, snow boots and an igloo, I’d say it’s lovely, right above/near zero degrees (in Celsius, for you guys that like Fahrenheit it’s 32F).

I found this skirt by accident while roaming the halls of Primark, the skirt is so comfortable and so easy to wear during colder months because of the fabric!

The shirt is from Brandy Melville, that store captured my heart this past year. Everything there is super basic, but feels great on your body. Their sizing is weird to say the least, but there are some good finds I swear.

I needed a coffee, or two, the day we took these pictures so hence me and my cup right there. And the pictures were taken by Alena Sison, check her website out!

Happy Sunday and may the Sunday Blues not get to you!

Bye bye beach, hello Boston

Hi there!

Up until last week I was enjoying some warm weather, hence the summer look.

But this week – today to be exact – I am starting school again here in Boston, and we’re back to rain, freezing temperatures and winter clothes. So worry not, looks with puffy jackets and lots of snow to come.

Not complaining to be honest, I love the weather in Boston.But starting the week remembering my vacation is a good way to stay motivated to accomplish my goals!

My one huge personal goal for the year so far is to stay healthy, which I’m doing pretty ok with so far. I hurt my ankle recently, so the exercising part of my staying healthy is on hold this week, except for doing a bit of yoga.

But these days I read somewhere that we should think of “resolutions” for the New Year in terms of helping others too, we focus way too much on ourselves. This is the challenging part in my opinion.

Hope you guys have a great week ahead of you!

Love,

Mila

 

The Necklace | Part 2

Maybe I’ll change the name of this blog to “OOTDs and Museums”, I have a thing with taking pictures at art museums and today’s OOTD is at the amazing Museum of Fine Arts in Boston ( ❤ )

My thought was to pair this necklace from Daily Opulence with a nighttime look. In the part one of this post I wore this statement piece with a daytime outfit so that the necklace could do the work of dressing it up for me. This time around I decided to wear this piece where I think it shines brightest: with a LBD.

I would totally wear this to go out clubbing/partying, but honestly it has become my go-to date night outfit. You know, for those nights when you want the person to be like WOW?! Yeah, and I think this dress + statement necklace (link to it here) does the trick.

I was gone for a little while due to a minor minor health thing, and I missed y’all 🙂

Hope you’re having a good Monday!

Love,

Mila
