Home Sweet Home

Studio Apartment Design

Welcome to my apartment tour!

This has been a long time coming, but I'm excited to finally share my space with you. Apartment-hunting can be a difficult process, and when I found the space I'm in now, I was feeling both thrilled and overwhelmed. My requirements were that it be bright, light-filled, and dog-friendly (hi Weaver!), so when I discovered a space that offered all of that in addition to crown molding, high ceilings, and a chandelier, I could barely contain my excitement. I felt as if I had found a studio apartment in Paris - not Boston. Studios can be challenging, though, and I didn't want guests to feel as if they were standing in my bedroom when they walked in. I kept that in mind when creating the layout and kept my decor cozy, romantic, and a bit industrial.

Oversized Large Floor Mirror

My favorite thing in the entire apartment? You would probably guess my oversized mirror, which was something I had wanted for over a year. I do absolutely adore the mirror, but my real favorite is this blush-colored chair. It belonged to my grandmother and originally had a dark cherry-wood frame that I later painted white. I love the subtle pop of pink it provides, and it feels special to have an old family piece in my apartment.

The apartment isn't quite finished yet - as you can see, I'm still looking for closet storage solutions (so please ignore the moving box that holds my shoes!).
Also, although not pictured, the apartment includes two other rooms: the bathroom is through the door to the left of my closet, and the kitchen is through an archway the far left corner.

Sweater On Repeat

Pink Fall Sweater

Sweater (under $50!) c/o Who What Wear Collection | Pants | Booties | Bag (similar) | Earrings c/o Baublebar

I'll take any excuse to spend time in New York, so when the invite arrived for Who What Wear's holiday party in the city, my RSVP YES was immediate. I spent two fantastic years living in New York City, and while I'm over-the-moon to be back in Boston, NYC will always hold a very special place in my heart.
Who What Wear had their entire new collection at the event and I was able to pick up this sweater and one other piece while I was there. I'm not even embarrassed to admit that I've been wearing this sweater on repeat over the past few days - between the balloon sleeves, the color, and the feel (it's so soft!), I can tell that this is going to be one of my favorite fall/winter pieces this year.

City Walks

Sweater (last season) | Jacket | BagScarf | PantsBooties (similar) | Lip

My morning routine in Boston consists of waking up and getting out of bed to take Weaver out for a walk. My 8-month-old black lab has a lot of energy and adores other people and dogs, so she especially likes when I take her around the city or through the Commons.
This moto jacket has become such a staple piece in my wardrobe (and is something I wore all over Budapest and Hungary this fall). Adding a big blanket scarf not only keeps me cozy, but also lends a feminine contrast to an edgy leather jacket.

Eye On The Prize

Blogger Fall Outfit Inspiration

Sweater (here in grey / love this one too) | Jeans | Tights | Bag | Booties (great alternative here)

Were you expecting more Morocco posts?

Believe it or not, I still have a few of those left. But, in the meantime, I also realize that it's November and that you guys are probably looking for Fall outfit inspiration more than vacation looks. I'll keep peppering in Marrakech photos, but I'll also be showing you guys what I'm wearing now that I'm back. It's cold in Boston and alllll of my sweaters are coming OUT. I'm loving graphic knits this season, like this eye-embroidered sweater, which I paired with my high-waisted ripped jeans (& tights) to balance out the cropped length.

Moroccan Afternoons

Style, Marrakech Morocco

Bodysuit (similar) | Pants | Bag | Shoes

Mornings in Morocco were spent eating breakfast outside and then leaving the hotel for whatever we had planned for the day. By the time we got back to the hotel, our afternoons were less structured and gave me some time to explore the hotel and really appreciate all the beautiful gardens and little architectural details.
My sister calls these my "sea anemone" pants and now I can't call them anything else. They're on sale right now - and while they're still on the pricier side, they're a great splurge if you're looking for something to bring on your next vacation.
