The $8 Statement Sweater
I bought this sweater on the morning of the women's march that made history. I will be able to say that for the rest of my life, and because of this I will have it until I die. No joke, I will guard it with my life. Maybe because it was $8... or maybe because I shot with it in the commons just hours before thousands of people marched for the better of this country. I may just be dramatic but be that as it may, this sweater is magic.
Maddy and I hadn't seen each other in weeks so we planned to have a content shoot. She prepared a few athletic outfits and I booked it to downtown crossing in a pair of black skinnies and some doc martens - because what else do I own?.. I had hoped to find a top to shoot in that morning but I was in store for much more. For the small price of $30 I left primark with 3 amazing staple tops to add to my wardrobe. All of which you will see either on Instagram or in a shoot. A black oversized tee made from a sweater material, a brick red V neck sweater in a soft thin material, and my march sweater of course. I was on top of the moon, and my shoot ended up being fantastic!
I was thrilled that Maddy and I chose to shoot in the commons the morning of Bostons Women's March. I hadn't anticipated people to be in such numbers so early in the morning but there were tons! All sporting pink hats and raising posters into the air. The March wasn't planned to start for hours. I was beaming with pride all day even though I was scheduled to work for the duration of it.
Maddy just got a new job so I planned my first personal styling appointment with her. Before we headed there however we stopped at Dig Inn which was absolutely amazing. I'm not sure why I had never tried it - but it quickly became a favorite. I love fresh foods and I was blown away that they also served lattes and mouth watering ice coffees among other things. It is a must in Boston!
Overall this was a good day.
