Dreamer

Happy Friday! Last week I was incredibly honored to have been invited to guest lecture a Fashion Marketing class at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI! It was such a great opportunity and I am so thankful to Professor Regine and her classroom of students for being so welcoming! The students were interested to hear about my insights and experiences in this life of style blogging and how I'm shaping my brand, LoSo Fancy. I, of course, went into it a little nervous, but as soon as I started my speech I had such an adrenaline rush that I didn't even look down at my notes more than three times; I was just ecstatic to talk about something I love doing as well discussing my passions, dreams, and goals for my career. All of the students asked great questions and I hope they took away some helpful tips from my answers. Senior year of college is a tough time for most as each person is figuring out the first step to take towards the career they've studied so long and hard to pursue. When one student expressed her uncertainty for what to do next I simply said, "If you follow your heart, trust your instincts, and pursue a dream you're passionate about you will really surprise yourself. An ambitious personality came out in myself that I never knew I had before and it's because I finally discovered my purpose."

Boyfriend Kick

Hello! Just a quick post today.

Clearly I've been on quite the kick for all my boyfriend fitted clothes lately. It's a no-brainer when I know it's going to be 50+ degrees out and I'm just looking for something more relaxed. This happened to be an easy work outfit for me last week. I thankfully work in a studio so the dress code is very casual and we happened to have a little work outing afterwards, so this was perfect for heading out to dinner and drinks in the city. Flats were a must after a long work day on my feet!

Hope you're having a good week so far!

Spring Leap


The birds are chirping, temperature's rising, and the sun has made a fairly consistent appearance this past week, so I can't help but feel giddy! It's been putting me in the best mood and has me dressing with ease and comfort, gravitating towards my favorite Spring staples. I recently joined the boyfriend jean team after finding this pair on sale at the Gap outlet (ahem, for $20!) and I really don't know what took me so long to try this fit out. I'd be lying if I told you I didn't wear these to work for three days straight last week. They're the most flattering pair I've tried and they've moved their way up the list of my favorite denim pairs in my closet. I'm especially excited to wear them for daytime strolls or nighttime bonfires on the beach when it gets warmer. The difference between boyfriend jeans and a pair of skinnies in hot weather is there's a whole lot more breathing room. I dare you to try them out for yourself! You can thank me later. =)

Pastel Lace


If you've been following my blog since last Summer, you know by now that these pants have been a favorite of mine that I've remixed over and over again (seen herehere, here, and here). They're such a bold, sophisticated color to style that I always consider it a fun experiment to find new color pairings on the days I reach for them. I've worn them from Summer to Fall into Winter and now that Spring is officially (finally!) here, I wanted to show you how I plan on transitioning them into the new season. Pastels are currently trending and dressing a soft shade up with something like these pants makes for a perfect contrasting statement. I'm a sucker for anything classic and elegant and I believe lace is one of the most beautiful fabrics to show off the lady in anyone.

Thanks so much for reading! Happy first day of Spring!

Garden Party

I'm seeing a trend. For the past couple of years around the time that Spring warms it's way back into my heart, I have found a pair of party pants that I can never stop wearing. Last year was this pastel statement that I don't think I could ever part ways with; I want to keep them for as long as possible so I can refer to them as a "vintage J.Crew piece". Now this year, these pants made their way into my closet after catching my eye a few weeks ago. I'm going to call them my "Garden Party" pants, no explanation needed. Spring officially starts in eight days, but I was impatient during the warm weather this past weekend and decided to break these in a little early. This is just the start of my "Garden Party" wearing streak. Can't wait to see all the other ways to remix these with new Spring pieces! I'm seeing some pastel pairings in the very near future...

Thanks so much for reading!

Oversized Wool

H&M coat | Zara top | J.Crew pants | Sole Society boots Rebecca Minkoff bag c/o Saks Fifth Ave | Kate Spade 'Shawna' sunglasses Michael Kors watchJ.Crew bracelet | Sephora Lipstick

Since the weather can't seem to decide on a steady temp just yet, I'm happy to have added this oversized wool coat to my closet. Perfect for layering under heavy coats for the freezing mornings or simply wearing over a t-shirt as soon as Spring officially sets in.

P.S. ever since I watched the Oscars Sunday night I have grown a bit of a girl crush on Lupita Nyong'o. She was a stunner in her Prada gown on the red carpet and after watching her interview on The Ellen Show I just can't get enough! She seems like such a sweetheart and now 12 Years A Slave is at the top of my must-see movie list.

Thanks so much for reading!

Spring Prep

H&M top | 7FAM jeans | Cole Haan wedges | Coach 'Willis' bag | Michael Kors watchJ.Crew bracelet | Warby Parker sunglasses c/o

Last weekend's warm weather in Boston completely put me in a Spring state of mind. It was enough to motivate me to start prepping my wardrobe for the anticipated season that is slowly creeping our way. Since the New England temperatures are still inconsistent, I felt the best way to start the Spring refresh was with a new pair of sunnies. Finding the perfect pair of shades has often been tough for me because the bridge of my nose is very low, so nothing would ever sit comfortably on my face. When I tried this pair from Warby Parker, it was the perfect fit! They are so comfortable that I can wear them for hours without my head feeling tight, they're extremely durable, and needless to say the tortoise print is bold enough to make a statement with any outfit I buy for sunnier days. Get ready to see these a lot on the blog!

Take a look at Warby Parker's Spring Collection to find your very own perfect pair!

Happy weekend!
