Last week, it was so snowy and icy that I could barely stand to take these pictures. But just yesterday, the temps went up to 60 degrees. The weather just can’t make up its mind. Either that or global warming has accelerated quickly within the last few days!

This week is a hectic whirl for me. Our law school’s Parody (annual musical theater show that we put on for the student body) is going live on Friday. Each year we write a unique script that makes fun of our professors and fellow classmates. This year’s theme is Harry Palsgraf: Fantastic Briefs and Where to Find Them.

Our cast LOVES the theme; we’ve divided up the cast into the four “houses” and are competing for “house points.” I’m actually the House Master for “Hufflepuff,” and since I’m also a director, I’ve been trying my darndest to award some sneaky extra points for my House whenever someone does a good job while acting. I never thought I’d be so competitive for a made-up competition, but since Harry Potter was such an influence on my childhood, I’m eager to see my House triumph.

Can’t wait to share pictures from the show! Thanks for reading.

The best thing that can be said about this time of year is that winter clothes are on sale, which is perfect if you live in the North (where winter lasts until April!)

Coat: Forever21, exact dupe here from Rosegal ($43) // Sweater: H&M (last season), similar here // Over-the-knee boots: Franco Sarto, similar here (on sale for $30) // Gloves: love this hot pink one from Etsy ($7)// Lipstick: Givenchy 302 “Hibiscus Exclusif”

This is also great news for me because I learned today the hard way that you shouldn’t wear leather over-the-knee boots on an icy, salty sidewalk. Not only did I nearly fall twice, but the heels of my boots are irreparably damaged. That’s what I get for trying to wear something more fashionable than duck boots :(

If you’re also on the hunt for some new leather boots to replace yours, Aldo’s leather OTK boots are now on sale, and these DSW ones are now $55! Conversely, if you’re someone who can’t wait for spring to get here, Forever 21 is giving 20% off their dresses through today. Happy shopping!

A few weeks ago, Melany from Trendy By Melany challenged me to style a Uniqlo oversized sweater for spring.

Sweater: Uniqlo ($9.90) // Scarf: Uniqlo ($15)// Shoes: Dillard’s // Pants: American Eagle // Lip color: Revlon “Crush” // Sunglasses: F21, similar here for $15 // Monogram necklace: Etsy

I’ve showcased a lot of sweaters on this blog, but I don’t recall showing one with a slouchy, hi-low hem and tight cuffed sleeves. I loved seeing how Melany wore her gray sweater as well!

To make this into a casual Valentine’s outfit that you can wear out to brunch, I’d drape a colorful cashmere scarf to ward off the February chills and pop on some stunning velvet pumps (Alert: all cashmere scarves on Uniqlo are $15 and their cashmere sweaters are $50!)

The classic cat-eye sunglasses and berry lip will certainly get you thumbs up from your girlfriends without looking way too dressed up. And although I showcase a lot of date night looks, sometimes our true Valentines are our group of close friends.

Thanks, Global Warming

I remember freezing my nose off while I took these photos outside, hoping it would never snow again…and thanks to global warming, it hasn’t. Did I curse all of Boston?

Earrings: Dillard’s $28 dupe for these $300 Rebecca de Ravenel earrings // Coat: F21 (last year), this year’s version here // Sleeveless turtleneck: Vince // White jeans: (I’ve had these for 4 years but they finally fell prey to a dark smoothie stain) American Eagle // Boots: Ugg Amie

If you’re looking for warm weather inspo though, I’m still posting more pictures from Belize and Central America on my Instagram! I also use Instagram stories a lot to show what I’m wearing every day.

Also, happy Lunar New Year to you! My friends and I celebrated here in Boston by going to an escape room (where you have to try to solve the puzzle of how to get out in an hour) and eating glorious hot pot at Q restaurant afterwards. We managed to escape the room with 27 seconds to spare, which was cutting it close! We could have never lived it down if we couldn’t get out…there were a lot of Harvard minds in that room 😉 Q’s hot pot is actually fairly priced and so delicious; pay in cash to get a 10% discount :)

祝大家新春快乐!我和我的朋友们在Q restaurant吃火锅庆祝新年。如果你想查看更多我的渡假照片,可以去看看我的Instagram  。我也喜欢用Instagram秀大家我的日常着装。谢谢!

Law school starts again in two weeks and I’ve already started packing (I’m typing this while sitting amidst a knee-high pile of clothes). After an exciting summer in NYC and a relaxing sabbatical at home, I’m not exactly looking forward to burying my nose in a legal tome again.

To lift my spirit, I turned to my girl crush and life coach Elle Woods. What would she do when school got her down? The answer is the same as it ever was: wear a lot of pink. Then, take a deep breath, slip into some heels, and march confidently into the new school year. Thanks, Elle!
