WIWW: Boston Outfits + Link Party


Sooo, last week, in my head this is what I thought:

"I am going to plan all these cute outfits and Chris will take my WIWW pictures in a historical park in Boston. It will be epic! I will frolic in the snow and look totally cute and not tired or jet lagged at all. I will have rosey cheeks and the cutest outfit and I will look just like a native Bostonian."

Fast forward to actually being in Boston and that whole dream went out the window. See ya dreamy plan of perfect pictures in the Boston winter; hello freezing temperatures, layers of jackets, and a snotty nose!

Having that tragic less than amusing story behind me, I can now reveal the two plain pictures in front of our hotel room door. Chris, the efficient photographer he is, snapped one and only one picture of the two following outfits.

Jacket: Kensie// Top: Random store in OKC mall// Jeans: The good 'ol Banana Republic// Boots: Oldie, but goody Steve Maddens
Attention: I had been up since 3:30am when this picture was taken. I had not showered, I was starving, and less than amused that my fairy tale plan of pictures in the park was demoted to a white door in our room. Okay, the last part was a lie. All I was thinking about was food. And a shower. 
Sweater: Forever 21// Jeans: Target// Boots: Steve Mads// Hair: Freshly washed
Attention: Can you tell I am a bit refreshed? It is amazing what sleep and a shower can do. 
You can see my other outfits I wore that were taken with my less than professional camera via IG (@sarahtuckerup) at this post here.

By the way, I am doing SO good with my resolution!!!!! I am not much for bragging, but I didn't even go into one clothes store the whole time we were there. We were even staying a block away from the famous Newbury Street that is lined with everything from American Apparel to Burberry. I was there for everything except shopping! Chris offered to buy me a Harvard shirt (was that a hint that he wanted me to look smart?), but I politely declined reminding him of my resolution :)

Now it is time to party!

  1. I laughed so much at this post, not because I am mean but because I am exactly the same as you. I have all these plans for cute outfit photos when we go somewhere that might have an exciting backdrop and a good excuse to be out taking photos of myself prancing about and then we get there and reality hits. I had the aim of this when we went for Sunday lunch lately in the snow (see this post - http://bakeglueandtrend.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/sunday-lunch-in-snow.html ) but I could barely stand in the snow in my coat let alone take my coat off so the actual outfit photos were as usual taken in my kitchen lol. I did get some pretty pictures of my boots, coat and bag in the snow though lol.

    You don't look tired in your face in that first picture (you still look lovely) but your posture says it all, like "hurry up and take the photo before I collapse into the carpet" lol. Love both outfits and well done on sticking to your resolutions!! I am linking up today :)

  2. WOW! Passing up Newbury street is very hard to do. I bought a fake Harvard tshirt for 5$ near the waterfront. It's a sleep shirt and great souvenir.
    You looked cute regardless! Great boots.
