Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

style: fall preview

August 17th, 2010 · Print Print

I went up to Boston last week for a fall preview at T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s headquarters, which was really a lot of fun.  Fortunately, the weather in Boston seemed to cooperate perfectly — it was just cool enough that I felt like I could break out this shirt, which I’d meant to save for early fall. 

I sometimes feel like you’re not a true fashion blogger until you’ve done the quintessential horizontal-striped-shirt post, so here’s mine!  I knew it was going to be a long day of meetings, shopping and travel, so I wanted something stylish and comfortable, and this definitely did the trick.

I’ll post more on the event later in the week, but a big thanks to everyone at Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, Rocket XL and Oglivy for making this event so much fun for the bloggers who attended!  The completely adorable Jessica from What I Wore took these photos — only at an event like this could I find someone to wake up at 6:45 am with me to take outfit photos!  Fashion blogger minds clearly think alike, which is pretty awesome.

More soon!

BCBG top, J. Crew necklace, Theory shorts, Alexis Bittar cuff, Marc Jacobs bag, Christian Louboutin pumps.

Our accommodations and travel were paid for by TJX, and each blogger received a $100 gift card to shop at the stores during this event.

    love the outfit, and not just because my middle name is breton stripe…not that those are exactly breton stripes…anyhow stunning!!!!!!!  Obsessed with your bag, and shoes…well and the shorts, top, and bracelet as well.  hahahah.  I like it all!  You look gorgeous, and that event must have been amazing!  I am anxious to hear more about it!

    Hi Katy–

    I follow What I Wore and I was so happy to see that Jessica posted a link to your blog. I sat behind you at Tricia’s wedding in June and you had told me the name but I had forgotten! Love the Japanese magazine feature– now if only I had learned enough Japanese to translate it;) I’m excited to follow you know that I’ve gotten a reminder!
