Snowy days is a time for cozy dressing. All of New England is a bit off kilter with kids home from school, offices closed and appointments cancelled. Make the most of it and stay in and bake that cake you've been dying to try or sneak out for a neighborhood snowball fight or - get out there and visit friends in cozy knits and lot of layers . Here are my picks to get you through the Winter Weather!

In a nutshell, Style Club is shopping made easy.
Last week I participated in my first one. My 'prep' involved 3 steps:
Fill out an online Personal Style Profile; answering questions about my fashion likes/dislike, my favorite brands and stores, sizes, price range, etc.
Pick a 45 minute time slot at a designated location that was convenient for me
Pay $99 (considering I was not the one schlepping out in the car going from store to store, I got off cheap)
Some examples of the Personal Style Profile:

An effortless look I favor in the summer is a basic white t-shirt, jeans and a great shoe. Throw on a statement necklace and you have an outfit.
With cooler, Fall days you can achieve the same effortless look by throwing on a blazer and swapping out the sandals for a pair of booties.
To strengthen your Fall closet and to make getting dressed easier each morning make sure you own a black blazer, bootcut denim, white fitted t-shirt ...

I recently heard someone ask "What do I wear to a food truck"?
I'm not going to lie, this particular question was a first for me, but as more and more food trucks are popping up on the North Shore, I thought it would be a fun one to consider.
The Kitchen Eatery & Catering in Portsmouth, NH's food truck - a.k.a. The Sandwich King. Not to be confused with the Food Network Sandwich King, Jeff Mauro. That said, when ordering from this truck we highly ...
How appropriate as we welcome 50 years of the mini-dress that it is back in style this Fall - not that it ever really went out!
If you are interested in some MINI TRIVIA keep reading...
Who designed the first mini-dress?
Although there is much debate on the subject, credit goes to British designer Mary Quant for raising hemlines by several inches above the knee in 1965.
Its worth noting the Quant is also responsible for hot pants!
How did the mini-dress get its name?
It was named after Quant's favorite ...
As the summer winds down I can't help but think about Fall trends. Specifically, I'm interested in color.
Here is a swatch of what you might be seeing -
At first glance I thought, hmmm, I'm not so sure about this. Are these really my colors? Hands down blue is my favorite, so 2 out of 10 isn't bad, right? And then it struck me as I arrived home one afternoon, I wear all these colors everyday as I have surrounded myself with their beauty. Here ...
I was at Marshalls and wanted to pass along some great finds (made by my children) that also qualify as essentials in any kid's closet.
My daughter was gaga over this JouJou faux leather jacket. Marshalls carries it in multiple sizes offering a tailored look while keeping her warm and stylish this Fall. Priced at $24.99 (full retail is $40).
Coincidentally, this months cover of Elle Magazine features the talented Kristen Wiig sporting a similar look. Great minds think alike!
Just like grown ups, all kids need ...
If your child(ren) attends private school, and a uniform is required, you probably already know where to find them. More and more stores are carrying them (thankfully!) so we thought we would share our list just in case -
French Toast is all uniforms. If your school is registered with their site, it makes shopping easy as it directs you towards the approved styles and colors. Not only that, but when registered, your school receives ...
