The Dean Hotel

Visiting Providence has gotten a lot cooler with the addition of The Dean to the hotel scene. If the branding of the hotel doesn't win you over, the low price point should. I realize I sound like a PR pitch (no, they didn't pay for my stay) but really, I'm totally their target audience and was happy to finally spend a night there over the weekend. There is tons of old school charm that is balanced by masculine and modern elements. Once a brothel, the 1911 building still has some of the original design elements including a classic caged elevator and mosaic tiled floors. And of course, any hotel room with beautiful morning light gets the ok in my books.











It was downright freezing while I was there, so I admit that jeans with holes weren't the smartest idea. It's just that I was pretty excited to finally replace my retired boyfriend jeans that became too hole-y to wear (way too much accidental foot sticking in the knee hole when putting them on – the worst). This pair from Rag & Bone is a great staple to any closet and has one of the nicer, more unique washes I've seen on denim in a while. I actually spent an afternoon in Soho trying on pair after pair of boyfriend jeans, but these were the only winner.

Also, apparently I'm a men's medium. The Chunky Knit sweater from Everlane has been sold out in women's sizes forever, so I've taken to looking in the men's department (and am actually pretty excited about some of the upcoming arrivals for men). I have pretty broad shoulders and I never mind extra-roomy fits, so the men's sweaters are kind of perfect with a little tuck to deal with the length.
