Head to Toe: Tunic, Continuations Consigmners // Jacket, Target // Sneakers, Converse

Hi friends! I am Chicago-bound today (half work/half pleasure), and this certified New Englander couldn't be more excited to explore a new city, albeit a windy one. Follow along on Instagram (@style_me_annie) or check back here in a few days. Happy hump day!

Falling

Head to toe: Top, Marshall's // Jacket, Target // Jeans, Continuations Consignments // Booties, Target.

Fall has officially arrived in Connecticut. Crisp mornings and chilly evenings sandwich warm, sunny days. It's my favorite time of the year, fashion choices included. On Friday, I wore my owl blouse to celebrate, and I even pulled out some seasonal chachkis and decorated my apartment over the weekend...Okay, this is sounding like the typical "I love fall post" (only missing a pumpkin spice latte), but I can't help myself! Happy autumn. 

Life

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Sometimes things happen to rock your world. Sometimes they don't come in a way you're expecting. Yesterday, I was running late for my train and had to sprint over the fly-over and hop into the first car I could, just before the doors closed. I found a seat quickly and settled in to read my kindle, instead of walking up to one of the first cars I usually sit in that are typically more open. At the next stop, I heard a commotion behind me. I turned and saw that a man had his foot stuck in the gap between the train and the platform as the train prepared to pull out. One person was trying to help him remove his foot and another pushed the emergency button, but the door began to close anyway. I grabbed it and ran onto the platform, shouting and waving for the conductor to stop. She saw me, and the door opened again. The man was able to free his foot and get on the train.

Something tells me that the universe wanted me and my loud mouth on that car, and to teach me this lesson: No matter what our personal struggles are, life is fragile and fleeting. All you can do is try to be a good person, and make the best decisions you can, because we only get one shot at this thing called life.

A Belated Blog Birthday

Saturday, September 6, 2014

Last week marked an important milestone for New England Romance: its third birthday. This past year has been one of change and growth for me, and I thank you for coming along for the ride. To recap, I've included some of my favorite looks from the past four seasons below. Here's to another year of style!

Saturday Swagger

Friday, August 29, 2014

Head to Toe: T-Shirt, American Eagle // Jeans, Gap // Sneakers, Converse // Necklace, J. Crew

It's rare that I get to dress down for work, but a photo shoot on Wednesday called for a casual look. I decided to keep it super simple and wear one of my favorite weekend outfits for fall: ripped jeans, a comfy tee, and Chucks. You can't go wrong. Happy Labor Day, everyone!

Late Summer Getaway

Thursday, August 28, 2014


Believe it or not, this weekend holds the unofficial last days of summer. My friend Monika and I decided not to let them go to waste and are escaping to Provincetown on the Cape for a night. Above are my essentials for a Labor Day away: a bright beach towel, string bikini, fun dress, floppy hat and white jeans (since they'll be taboo next week). Are you going anywhere this weekend?

Robin's Egg

Head to Toe: Dress, thrifted // Sandals, Steve Madden // Bag, Nine West.

I wore this dress to a trade show last week and thought it would be an easy repeat for a polished Monday. I like how it can stand alone, though I should probably start embracing fall fashion. It's back-to-school week around here, which is making me feel a bit nostalgic. I always loved the new beginnings that came each semester, but I'm hopeful that this season will have some positive changes for me anyway.
