The Tory Burch Event You Don't Want To Miss

Tory Burch is currently offering 30% off when you spend $250 or more. Here's what you should be investing in.

You know what's even better than a really great sale? A really great promotion! Clearly, saving is always a win (I've been known to brag about 10% discounts that have saved me less than $5) but nothing beats saving on the brand-new, wear-all-season-long goodies you've been dreaming about since the day you first spotted them on the pages InStyle. And this is exactly why I'm so excited to tell you about the Tory Burch fall promo event I woke up to this morning;

Right now, spend $250 in-store or online at ToryBurch.Com and you'll save 30% - yep, 30%! 

More often than not, I'm hugely disappointed by the kind of shopping events that include purchase minimums since the amount you're required to spend is generally completely disproportionate to the discount being offered. In other words, I'm not just super impressed by this one but super tempted by it as well . . .

You'll Love Boston's Park Plaza - Here's Why

If you've been following along on insta then you probably know that Ted, Maddie and I celebrated our Labor Day Weekend in style at Boston's Park Plaza. Since this was our first time actually staying at the iconic hotel and I know just how much I rely on the recommendations of locals when visiting new-to-me cities I thought I'd share a little bit about the experience . . . 

Hey Fido: Since I'm a self-professed crazy dog lady and proud of it the majority of my travel arrangements revolve 100% around my number one girl; Maddie-Moo. More often than not, that means sacrificing on the quality of our chosen hotel because so many aren't puppy friendly, driving an extra two hours in the opposite direction just so we can leave her with her grandparents (thanks guys!) as opposed to strangers and even choosing destinations we know she's going to enjoy - I'm not kidding, our girl loves to hike. Since Ted and I are big fans of the very underrated staycation we were psyched to find that the Park Plaza (one of our long-time faves in the city - we regularly grabbed drinks there when we lived in the Back Bay) welcomes furry-friends with open arms.

Location, Location: Situated right off Boston Common you won't find a better located hotel in the city. Tourist or not you're just minutes from some of the most beautiful strolls, must-see attractions, life-changing eats and can't miss boutiques in Massachusetts. I'm talking Acorn Street which just happens to be one of the most photographed in the US, Tatte Bakery where you can indulge in the desserts that helped solidify it's place on Buzzfeed's list of "25 Bakeries Around The World You Have To See Before You Die," the Public Garden's breathtaking blooms and Dress Boston which might just be my favorite spot to shop. Oh and those views don't hurt either - enthralled by everything that was going on below us we literally had to pry Maddie away from the windows before checking out!

In Detail: If there's one thing I really can't stand it's a ridiculously-well-located-hotel that knows it's a ridiculously-well-located-hotel and is thus happy to rest on it's laurels. I'm sure you know the kind of property I'm talking about, the kind that's twenty odd years out of date and serves up highly questionable food yet continues to survive (and in some cases even thrive) simply because it happens to be nestled between some of the worlds most beautiful beaches. If you ask me, true luxury places just as high a priority upon the little things as it does the big and having just spent a weekend at the ridiculously-well located Park Plaza (see above) I was thrilled to discover that it really is all about the details. What can I say? I believe in fresh hydrangeas, perfectly styled coffee tables and a really great glass of bubbly. 

Foodies Rejoice: I may be an absolute disaster in the kitchen (I've yet to successfully bake cookies as opposed to cookie and may have attempted to boil an egg in a tea kettle just a few short years ago!) but I still consider myself a total foodie. From pinning recipes (for Ted to attempt - obviously!) and researching the latest dining destinations to consuming hours worth of The Food Network on a daily basis and adding to my list of "Things to Eat Before I Die" you could say my life revolves around all things edible. Long story short, when it comes to food I'm not the kind of girl who settles which means you can trust me when I tell you that Boston's Park Plaza boasts two of the best places to grab a bite in the city; Off The Common and STRIP by Strega. Want my advice? Curl up in a cozy corner with an order of the lobster sliders at the first and save the latter for a much more indulgent night with your beau.

Fall Has Officially Arrived At Anthropologie

My top fall picks from Anthropologie include this gorgeous wool top, Tess.

Living in New England there are few things I love more than curling up in a chunky knit that's just begging to be paired with a steaming hot mug of cocoa and that's exactly why fall is my favorite season to shop for. 

For years my list of go-to stores for "fall-perfect" pieces has included Madewell (their plaids are amazing and I managed to nab one of my faves on mega sale today!) and Anthro the latter of which I just spent a solid hour drooling over! To see what I'm currently lusting after over there just click on through below . . .

In The Navy

Top: J.Crew | Skirt: Topshop
Clutch: (similar here) | Sandals: Stuart Weitzman
Sunnies: Karen Walker | Watch: Daniel Wellington

I know you were probably expecting a chunky sweater and scarf combo today but there was no way I could fully embrace fall without breaking out this pretty gingham top at least one more time. Besides, it was in the eighties when we shot this look last week and ridiculously humid too (which you can probably with just one look at my hair!) so I'm pretty sure I get a free pass here!

Of course, I didn't actually start writing with the intention of complaining about the weather or rambling on about my gingham obsession (although the top is on super sale!) but the midi skirt I can't stop wearing. 

Since I'm often rocking the style many of you have asked where I typically find my midis. Those with an eye for detail will probably notice that this navy number is exactly the same as the pastel blue, red, white and black versions you've seen me wearing around insta. (Yep, I'm one of those girls who finds the perfect pair of pants and then proceeds to buy 'em in every single color or print available. Hands up if you're with me!) Luckily for me, I've not only found a go-to brand for my favorite skirts but it's as affordable as it is reliably chic; hey Topshop! 

Next time you're looking to add a little extra feminine-flair to your wardrobe I'd highly recommend checking out the brand but take it from me, you'll need to put your blinkers on first - it's been years and I still haven't mastered the art of visiting the brands site without buying more than I'd bargained for!

P.S. Did you know the guys at Daniel Wellington just created the perfect cuff for their classic watches? To celebrate they not only gifted me my favorite cuff (the rose gold version you see here) but are also offering my readers a 20% discount on DW purchases. Just enter code: KERRIE2016 at checkout to treat yo'self!
