Lately

A little of what I have been up to lately via my Instagram feed...


Taking a tour of the Allagash Brewery in Portland, ME. Outfit details here.


The most delicious oysters and lobster roll I've ever had @ Eventide Oyster Co!

Enjoying the beautiful Portland weather.

Back in Boston, and doing what I do best…brunching (with more oysters!)



Spent the morning reading in the beautiful courtyard of the Boston Public Library

Obligatory stop in the Public Garden to see the Swan Boats

Checking out my new neighborhood and found the cutest little bookstore (I'm obsessed with the ladder!)

Truth.

Follow me on Instagram @stephkward. Thanks for reading and happy hump day!

…Shine

Part 2 of the "One Dress, Two Ways" mini series (see part 1 here)! I'm a strong advocate of recycling and reinventing your closet (I "cost-per-wear" everything!). If you spent all that money on your clothes, why wouldn't you want to get as many uses out of it as possible, right? 

By simply adding a collar and changing a few accessories, this dress instantly feels fresh and new again! Which look do you prefer, #1 or #2?

Summer Leather


top: Ella Moss. shorts: Forever 21 (old, similar here and here). jacket: Gap. shoes: DSW. bag: J. Crew. hat: J. Crew. sunnies: Karen Walker. watch: Michele. rings: David Yurman, J. Crew, Michael Kors, ASOS, Kate Spade. nails: Essie "Bikini So Teeny". lips: Stila "Fiery".







As summer begins to wind down, I have found myself looking for new ways to start transitioning my wardrobe into the fall season. My latest take, (faux) leather shorts! Wear them now with a light and airy top and flats, then pair them with a chunky sweater and booties once the weather cool downs a bit.
What are your favorite transition pieces this season?
