Dot Print Tie Sleeve Crop Topshop

I can't say no to a cute tie detail.

These voluminous sleeves give this otherwise normal button down a little more drama.

Both effortless and girly. I especially love the slimming effect of a flutter sleeve.

Eyelet Ruffle Top

A little ruffle never hurt nobody. How cute are these eyelet details?

For The Love Of Jumpsuits

Pink Tibi Jumpsuit | @maevestier

Jumpsuit | Bag | Earrings c/o Baublebar | Shoes

What is it that makes me love jumpsuits so much? Is it just the fact that it's basically a dress but with pants? I'm not sure - but what I do know is that it can be a struggle to find one that works with my 5'9" frame. I can feel absolutely horrible in a poorly-fitting jumpsuit, but give me one with the perfect proportions and I feel like can take on the world.
This particular piece from Tibi really hits the nail on the head. It's not completely body-con top to bottom, but it also doesn't lack any definition. The ruffled hemline and waist-cinching tie sash make for very pretty details - and don't even get me started on that COLOR.

Head Over Heels

Patterned Midi Skirt | @maevestier

Top c/o Alice & Olivia | Skirt c/o & Other Stories | Bag | Shoes c/o M.Gemi (use code "MAEVES40" for $40 off!) | Earrings c/o Baublebar

At the end of July, I attended a little launch party for M.Gemi, an Italian shoe company I'd been stalking on Instagram for the past year. This is actually the exact top and skirt I wore to the event, and while I was there I discovered these gorgeous kitten heels: two-toned, comfortable, and with the chicest little bow detail. They work so well with this colorful patterned midi-skirt and ruffled top, but I also threw them on with ripped jeans to grab coffee yesterday morning and really loved the combination.
Thanks to M.Gemi, for offering my audience $40 off any purchase! Use the code "MAEVES40"

Instagram Decides My Day

Flowers & Floral Prints | @maevestier

A few weeks ago, I let Instagram decide my day.

I posted several polls on my Instagram Stories and had YOU vote on what I should do with my day. I would post two options on a poll, give about 10-20 minutes for people to vote, and then do whatever the winning option (at the time) was. As someone who loves to plan, it was a little bizarre for me to not know where I was going for breakfast or what my coffee order would be - but it ended up being a really fun morning (and something that I might do again). 
Scroll down to follow along with my day!


WHAT TO WEAR: Top & Pants or Dress?

Top & Pants
This Or That?
Patterned Dress

YOU CHOSE: Top & Pants
For an 85-degree day in Boston, I gave you two easy & lightweight outfit options that have never been on the blog before. Thanks to your votes, I ended up getting compliments on my pants for the rest of the day.
(Shop my pants here & top here)


WHERE TO GO FOR BREAKFAST: Tatte or Mother Juice?

Mother Juice Boston | @maevestier

YOU CHOSE: Mother Juice
Next up: breakfast! I gave you the choice between two local Back Bay spots: Tatte (bakery/cafe + coffee) or Mother Juice (Smoothie/juice spot). After 20 minutes, the votes were in Mother Juice's favor, so I headed over to to grab a smoothie bowl. Unfortunately, by the end of the day, the votes have flipped to Tatte's favor - but I wasn't going to wait too long to eat breakfast!


COFFEE ORDER: Iced Vanilla Latte or Iced Chai Latte?

Pavement Coffee Newbury | @maevestier

YOU CHOSE: Iced Vanilla Latte (my fave!)
I need my caffeine in the morning, so after breakfast I went in search of coffee. My go-to order tends to be an iced vanilla latte, but I have a newfound appreciation for iced chai lattes, so I made that an option as well.


WHERE TO SHOP: Reformation or TJMaxx?

Reformation Boston | @maevestier

YOU CHOSE: Reformation
Back Bay is filled with retail stores, so next up I wanted to go do a little shopping. There's a gorgeous new Reformation store that just opened a few months ago (so my style), and down the street there's also a large TJMaxx where I usually pick up some pretty great finds. I told you that I'd put together a few looks at whichever spot you chose. Thanks to you, I ended up finding some really cute new arrivals at Reformation (which you may end up seeing in upcoming posts!).

WHERE TO TAKE A PHOTO: Umbrella Patio or Flowerpot Steps?

Newbury Street, Boston | @maevestier

YOU CHOSE: Flowerpot steps
I spent the morning with my friend and photographer, Nicollette, who shot photos along the way during the day. For an outfit shot, I found two great locations - a storefront patio with the cutest striped umbrella and a set of residential stairs that were filled with flowerpots (which seriously matched my pants). If you've been keeping up with me on Instagram, you will have seen the resulting photo photo in my feed!


In case you missed it: you can still watch my IG stories from my "Instagram Decides My Day" on my highlights here!

Rainy Day Brunch

Boston Bloggers | @maevestier

Top (similar here & here) | Shorts (similar) | Shoes | Bag | Umbrella | Also pictured: @AbbyMatses

There's no raining on our parade - and I mean that pretty literally. Rain or shine, I still wanted to wear something cute to a brunch at Citrus & Salt with a few fellow Boston-based creatives. We drank sorbet mimosas (yes, that's a thing), took far too many photos of our food before eating (my friend @Kiraamaa is an expert), and then braved the rain for a few shots outside with our umbrellas. When you blog, you don't really have co-workers (as you normally would in a work environment), so it's really nice to get the chance to spend time with fellow bloggers and feel like part of a community.
