Simple & Serene

If you haven’t gotten a glimpse on Instagram, I am back on the east coast vacationing down the Cape with my family. Life here is perfection. It’s simple, it’s silent, it’s serene.. I love it here & I am lucky to have the opportunity to come down here every summer with the ones I love to escape the craziness of life. & it’s so true, the older you get the more you realize just how important quality time with family is. I’ve literally done nothing but laugh with my cousins, bond with my aunts & uncles, & reconnect with my parents.

Every time I fly back east I try to reach out to the Boston brands I love to continue both a working relationship & to spread their name from coast to coast. First up, A Ruby & GoodBeads.

The Dedham Transcript

"Pop-Up" store opens in Legacy Place

By Max Bowen
mbowen@wickedlocal.com

There’s a brand new women’s clothing store in Dedham, but you may want to head there now, as it may not be there for long.

A Ruby, located in Legacy Place near LuLuLemon, follows the “Pop-Up” model of retail that began in 2008, according to A Ruby owner Avra Myers, when the commercial retail industry was hit hard by the Recession. Many business owners were reluctant to sign a five or 10-year lease when so many storefronts were emptying. Myers said Pop-Ups can stay for a few days or months to try out a location and see if it’s to the owner’s liking, and if so, they can look into signing a lease. For the time being, Myers plans to remain in Dedham through the fall.

With Love, Meg - A lifestyle blog

AV-RA PerformanceI love A Ruby workout pieces for a few reasons; one of them being how incredibly soft the fabric is! Wearing these leggings and this tank top is practically like wearing butter on your skin! So smooth and comfortable. I don’t find myself having to awkwardly adjust anything or pull on any of the fabric to readjust – it fits perfectly the first time.

AV-RA Performance in Iceland

I take packing very seriously.

I detest overpacking. What is the point in dragging around 40 lbs of extra crap in order to have wardrobe options?! Instead, I prefer to pack basic pieces that have styling flexibility. Lots of options with little bulk.

When A Ruby reached out to me about trying their activewear line, AV-RA Performance, I knew they would be perfect additions to my Iceland wardrobe. Each item is basic enough to be a building block, but has thoughtful details that keep it from being boring.

Pushing the envelope
This came first to mind when I put this outfit together. Pairing feminine and tough elements today and stepping outside of my comfort zone. This is one of those looks that you either love or hate. There isn’t much in between. You either feel it’s you and pull it off or you think I got dressed in the dark or just lost my mind.
Essentially, the belt pulls all the pieces together and creates a unique outfit that seems strange at first but it really works (at least it does for me). It is unique, maybe a bit eccentric yet it is within the boundaries of a minimalist.

June Edit by Emily

Between weddings, bachelorettes, reunions, birthdays, work, family, occasional sleeping(?), I’ve been running on autopilot since about May 7th, and this is only the start of summer. I’m not complaining about a-n-y of it, but I’ve also been equally grateful for some me-time and me-treats over the last few weeks. I got to try out the following products+places for the purpose of review, and I’m pleased to present them as my June Top 5!

AV-RA // Weren’t we just talking about athleisure? I’ve been a fan of A Ruby‘s super chic, crazy comfortable basics for a couple years, and now Avra is back with the newest addition to her brand:: a line of–equally chic–performance wear. Sweat-wicking, UPF 50+, NON SEE-THRU(!) fabric = worth every penny. You can shop it online, or visit her pop-up at Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham between now and June 30.

These clothes speak to me. I can wear them to the gym. I can wear them after the gym to run errands. They are sleek, well made, and well designed. 

As a newish mom to a bouncing baby boy and a 2.5 year old I NEED comfort that doesn't sacrifice style. There is only so much Lulu you can get away with;)

How to make your boyfriend blazer look feminine

A girly dress paired with a tougher piece creates a great balance and makes for a chic and polished outfit. I love the fresh colors of the dress and its comfortable, casual fabric. It pairs great with a dressy blazer and heels just as well as with sneakers and a cardigan. The latter was my choice of combination for a company picnic.

Cappuccino and Morning paper

Even if it’s just a coffee run, I like to look polished without putting too much effort into getting ready. Comfortable pants and big sunglasses are a must (so I can skip the make up part). I’ve been living in my A Ruby pants ever since I came across that brand. A Ruby is all about looking chic without feeling uncomfortable. If you missed my interview with the founder, Avra you can catch up with her vision and the story behind the A Ruby brand.

SPRING BREAK MUST HAVES

Spring is almost here…and that means it’s time to travel!  I wanted to share with you some of my favorite must haves for my bag when I’m on the road.  Some are for flying, some are for road trips…and some will even help you every single day.

A great set of clothes make traveling comfortable, easy, and enjoyable. I love looking (and feeling) good when I travel. I like taking A Ruby’s staples with me.  They are perfect for any occasion and travel well.  Some of my must haves are their white shirt, riding pants, and boyfriend blazer.  Their white shirt is casual, yet dressier than a plain tee.  It’s white, but not see through and the button stay in place…no peeking by my bra!

Kerry M. Burke

Kerry M. BurkeHere in Boston it seems like we're always playing second fiddle to New York and you know what? That's okay. In fact, it's part of our charm.  That being said, I'm a big believer in "credit where credit is due" and it's glaringly obvious to me that the style scene in this city is horribly underrated - always has been. Thanks to local designer Avra Myers however that may (finally) be about to change. 

Visionary behind A Ruby and all-round wonder woman (her energy truly is incredible - and hopefully catching!) Avra spent years working and designing with Club Monaco before going on to launch her very own brand. Dedicated to elevating your everyday closet A Ruby is all about boosting a woman's confidence by providing 1. an impeccable fit and 2. that "je ne sais quoi" we all envy of Parisians. (Speaking of Paris, have you had a chance to check out Emma & Chloe yet? Delivering French jewels plus a magazine direct to your door every month it has to be one of the best subscription services out there - I've loved every piece they've sent me so far but this layered necklace has to be in my top two.)

Still comfy slightly dressed up.

Cozy and chic clothing to keep you looking good through the winter

Polar Fleece WrapWhen the temperature begins to dip into the negatives and the snow continues to fall, it can be hard to work up the energy to get dressed to face the day. It's easy to get in the habit of trying to pass off yoga pants as dress pants and bulky sweaters as fashionable tops. Let's not kid ourselves, winter is the worst season for fashion. It's that never ending battle of trying to stay warm, comfortable and fashionable.

A Ruby Leather Riding Pant Leggings

A Ruby Riding PantsI pride myself on being a pretty dang good packer. I usually wear everything I bring, don’t overpack, and leave a little extra room for purchases on the way home. Yet I all but completely failed when it came to packing for our trip to Paris this fall, and didn’t realize it until we got there. While I pictured postcard-perfect 67-degree early September days, we instead hovered around 55 and raining. Oops.

Thankfully, I had thrown in one pair of “pants” with all of those dresses and skirts, and even more fortunately, they are what I’d consider the chicest pants I own: a pair of leather-detailed riding pants leggings that local designer Avra Myers of A Ruby had sent me a couple months before.
