beetlejuice, beetlejuice…

Black and white striped shirt with green shorts…I unintentionally dressed up like Beetlejuice for today’s outfit.

I wore this out to dinner on the Waterfront (although maybe I should have worn it to a haunted house?) and already sense an outfit repeat coming on in the near future. The shorts look insanely short in a couple of the pictures, but I swear they are in fact public-appropriate.

I’m keeping this post very light on the text because it’s Monday and my brain hurts. The end.

mint & lace

I channeled my inner Barney for this outfit. The dinosaur, not the high-end department store. Mint is huge this season and these purple pumps are also huge…6” to be exact. It seemed like a perfect match.

I absolutely adore the city of Boston, but my one complaint is that not enough people wear heels. (I say “people” and not “girls” because if the Real Housewives of Atlanta taught me anything it’s that a man can WORK IT in a pair of stilettos). I don’t like the fact that I’m totally out of place most nights when I put on 5-6 inchers. Does it completely stop me? No. But it’s definitely the reason these bright, fun pumps don’t get worn more often.

What do you guys think of the mint trend? I’ve never had a ton of green in my closet, but I’m loving the shade.

taste of the vineyard 2012

Last Thursday was the annual Taste of the Vineyard event on Martha’s Vineyard. Local island restaurants, caterers and bars serve up bites of their best dishes, wines, beers and liquor, and once everyone is done schmoozing, boozing and stuffing their faces, you hit the dance floor. It’s always a blast and one of the few occasions when it’s appropriate to get dolled up on the typically uber-casual Vineyard.

When the Taste comes to an end around 10PM, the younger crowd continues the celebrating at The Wharf, and that’s usually when things start to go downhill. And by “downhill” I mean “uphill”…in an embarrassing way.

I used the Taste as an excuse to buy three new dresses because…I suck. I ended up settling on this white, fitted dress from H&M. I figured the high neckline made it classy enough for the event, while the tightness and super-short length kept it very “me.” Not sure what that says about “me” and my style, but oh well.

Highlight of the Taste this year was Sharky’s serving up tequila shots and the band playing Call Me Maybe. Low point was my decision to get on the 6AM boat the next morning to make it back to Boston for work. By 10AM I had downed three gallons of coffee, two bagels and convinced myself that I was dying.

 I snapped these pictures before heading to the Taste, but you can check my Instagram (@nicoleperr) for a couple additional pics at the event. I already can’t wait for Taste of the Vineyard 2013.
