Remember that painfully yellow, pleated skirt blazer combo Cher wore in Clueless? Unfortunately, me too. However, that look is in this fall (minus the yellow of course). I'm talking white button downs, layered under an oversized sweater and paired with a cute, pleated, plaid mini skirt. If this is sounding too preppy to you, have no fear. Swap that sweater with a black blazer with leather details. My favorite one can be found here: READ MORE

A great thing about living on Commonwealth Avenue is that we literally live about 5-10 minutes (depending on where you live) from Fenway, and by extension, Regal Fenway. If you’re looking for a relaxing night out, look no further than Regal. It’s surrounded by great places to eat like Panera Bread or Chipotle. If you’re in the mood to save some extra dollars, you can definitely walk to Shaw’s grocery store to pick up some cheap snack and drinks too.    At this point, you’re ready to watch the movie.
