snapshots + some monday ramblings.

So, if you haven’t noticed, it’s pretty much vest season for me. I hardly go anywhere without a vest this time of year. I layer up, put one on, and I’m good to go.

Vests I swear by:

Lands End Canvas

Old Navy


The Old Navy one is by far the best deal. 20 bucks later and you’ve got the cutest vest around! Go get one. You’ll love it.

In other news, I went to the SOWA Vintage Market this weekend. That place is just the greatest. I came back with these two steals:

The boots were $27 and the vintage New Yorker magazine cover was a dollar.

What a gold mine.

These photos are all snapshots from the past three weeks in Boston. Mostly, they are from my weekends here in the Bean. There is something about a weekend at home that is just so glorious. Nowhere to go, nothing to do. Like I said, GLOOORYYY. Now I love weekends away as much as the next person, but after a month of traveling in August, and a bunch of weekends away in September, weekends in Boston are welcomed and appreciated. This weekend was filled with bike riding into Harvard Square and dinner’s out and sleeping in. I did laundry, and organized the house. I did work for school, walked around the city, and spent plenty of time vegging out in front of the TV.

Homeland, guys. Watch it. Watch it NOW.

Reasons for you to believe that Homeland is AMAZING:

1. My mom told me about this show.

My mom has the most amazing history with finding shows. She was the one who told me about LOST. And waaaay back in the day she discovered My So Called Life. Best shows ever? I think so.

2. Speaking of My So Called Life, Claire Daines is in Homeland. CLAIRE. DAINES. My #1 celebrity girl crush of all time. BEST ACTRESS EVER. Anyone remember my vlog from way long ago? Where I expressed my forever love for her? Still rings true, people. Still rings true.

3. It won the Emmy AND Golden Globe for Outstanding Drama Series and Best Television Series, respectively. DELICOUS. I’m telling you.

Well, I guess that’s enough rambling for one Monday.

Hope you all had a good weekend, too!


  1. I LOVE all of your fall looks here! So cute :)

  2. Ahhhh those boots!! And I am kind of in love with your vests too :)
    I might just take up yet another tv show, this is dangerous business! haha

  3. Seriously, Homeland is the best! We first saw it on the Emmys and decided we needed to watch it since it got so many awards. We just finished the first season and will start on the 2nd this week to get caught up. Claire Danes is amazing in it!

    My favorite puffy vest of yours is the green one from ON and of course they’re sold out :( Maybe they’ll have it in the store?

  4. Anna! I love the SOWA market and was so happy to discover it this summer. I brought my college roommates there and we all got frozen hoagies and they found some amazing steals. I could get lost in the Vintage market for daaaaayz.

  5. I had never considered a vest before, but yours look so cute I think I am sold!

    I have heard so many good things about Homeland from so many different people…might be a great way to fill indoor time once it starts getting chilly!

  6. Those boots! $27?! Love. And I think I need a new vest. You’ve got me thinking it’s necessary ;)

  7. homeland is definitely on the list! and that’s me up there :) yay! and i love your vests – you look so perfect and fall-like in them. also – those cowboy boots are an amazing score. we will have to get together next summer and wear our boots all up and down the east coast ;)

  8. As usual, obsessed with your photography. And you make me want to wear puffy vests. And I do not do vests well.

  9. I’m going to start paying attention to your vest style…I got a really nice Gap one for a steal at the thrift store. And I think I’ve worn it…once?

    Also, SO mad at myself that I still haven’t been to SOWA. It’s becoming a fantasy world in my head.

  10. THOSE BOOTS! we need to hang out more. i need more anna in my life. you have such a positive attitude. xoxooxox
