As much as I love sitting on my sofa in pajamas while shopping online, there is no better feeling than leaving a great boutique with a bag full of clothes in hand.  In addition to the instant gratification that you get from actually shopping in a store, I love supporting local shops, plus the help you get from the staff not only makes you feel special, but they are able to suggest items you may have overlooked otherwise.  There are several boutiques in the Boston area that have captured my heart with their selection of clothing and exceptional service.  LIT Boutique is one of them.  Not only does the sales staff make you feel like friend, but I never step out of the store empty handed.  With lines like Blank NYC, Articles of Society, DL1961, Keepsake, and ASTR (just to name a few), the store is filled with beautiful, on trend, clothing, that won't make you break the bank.  A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to check out LIT's fall collection, and shoot a few looks showcasing this season's top trends.  The look I'm sharing today combines three fall must haves in one outfit, which are monochrome, embroidery and suede.

One of my favorite trends of the season is wearing a monochromatic look.  There is something about it that gives off a sophisticated feel, and my favorite way to pull it off is with the color grey.  The second I laid eyes on this embroidered sweater, I knew that I would be taking it home with me.  Not only do I love the floral embroidery, but the zipper detail on the back adds an unexpected touch, giving a playful feel.  The LIT stylist helping me suggested that I pair it with this Blank NYC suede skirt, and I couldn't love the combination more.  I added my grey booties, and finished the look with silver Gorjana bracelets giving a perfect fall outfit.  Too bad it was 90 degrees the day we shot this look! 

I'll be sharing more fall trends with LIT Boutique next week, so make sure to stop back!  If you live in New England, LIT has three locations in Boston, and one in Portsmouth NH, so make sure to stop in.  If you're not in the area, don't worry!  You can shop online here!

On a personal note, I just wanted to give you an update from last week.  They caught the guy who was placing the bomb threats in our school system.  Such a relief!  Thank you for all of your kinds words and encouragement on last Friday's post.  Now, if we can only stop terrorism and natural disasters from happening....  Wishing everyone a happy and safe weekend.

The feature blogger is Ruth from My Little Nest.  I'm loving her black and grey look, but the story behind it is even better!  Make sure to visit her blog to read why, and say hello!


  1. First off, I love that you support local business. Sometimes its easy to find things quickly and cheaper online, but it's really nice to have local businesses flourish as well. Second, I am so gaga, in love with that sweater. I almost bought something similar to it in early September but I was already at my budget for the month so I skipped it. It might be going on my wish list.

  2. all grey goodness.. how absolutely divine xx

  3. Love that it's a local boutique, such stylish pieces!

  4. I love the featured back zipper and the embroidery!


  5. I'm so glad they caught the person!! All of this craziness just needs to stop.

    It is so rare for me to actually go to the store and shop, but I've been doing a lot of buying and returning lately when things don't work out. It's frustrating! I should go to the store more. I love your skirt and embroidered sweater!

  6. That sweater is absolutely STUNNING!

  7. Gorgeous look Rachael! I love all the grey suede, your sweater is beautiful, and I am obsessed with those sunglasses!

  8. I recently had a fall shopping and lunch day with friends in a historic area and we went in several boutiques. It is a lot of fun and the quality is always above and beyond my expectations! I love everything about this monochromatic look! That zipper detail on the back of the sweater is nice and I just love the color of that skirt!


  9. I love a good monochromatic look and grey is my favorite color. Earlier this week I did an all-grey monochromatic athleisure look myself (which I linked with you). Boutiques are so much fun to shop. The skirt and especially the sweater you got at LIT are stunning and you look like a million bucks!

    P.S. Glad they caught the guy doing the bomb threats. What a relief!

  10. This is such a spectacular look! I love all the textures, neutral monochrome tones... it is really edgy without being "edgy," if that makes sense. I love a good boutique, and it is always nice to have a great one nearby!


  11. I love the fall monochromatic look! The patterns and textures of each of the individual pieces pair together so perfectly. This outfit is styled so nicely, and it's good that you are supporting a local business.
    Thank you for linking up this week!

  12. This look is so chic Rachael! I'm all about a monochromatic look, I seriously can't get enough. The zipper detail is definitely my favorite part of this sweater.
    So sorry to hear about whats happening in your neighborhood, glad the problem is being resolved! Its such a scary world.
    Have a great weekend babe
