ACK Daffy

This past weekend was Daffy Fest on Nantucket it was definitely one for the books! We had so much fun checking out all the antique cars, shopping, and hanging out at Cisco Brewers. Nantucket is one of my favorite places to visit, there is something so special about the island. We ended up having fantastic weather and I was able to walk around in just a sweatshirt for most the day, but it is Spring in New England so you should always bring a few layers with you.

If you can’t make it over on Friday night I would try and take the earliest ferry over. The 8:00AM will get you to the island just in time to watch the vintage cars line up for the parade. It really is a sight to see from vintage Land Rovers and Jeeps to Ferraris all decked out with Daffodils! People pack over the top picnics and everyone heads out to Sconset for a huge tailgate. There is also a dog parade, a hat parade, and a parade for all the little ones, Main St is the place to be Saturday morning of Daffy weekend! As if the weekend wasn’t perfect enough I even made a new friend Hudson, an 8 week old black lab puppy. Isn’t he adorable?IMG_6014IMG_6016IMG_6209 Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Have you ever been to Daffy? What is your favorite part?

Blooms on Comm Ave

Magnolia season is just about over, the flowers are falling and trees are turning green. So glad we had nice weather for the peak since now it’s pretty much all rain. I love a good T-shirt dress, they’re easy to dress up, dress down, you can look like you put in effort without having a super complex outfit. I love this one I got from J.Crew last year it has adorable gingham bell sleeves that make it feel a little extra.

South End Sunday

The south end is quickly becoming one of my favorite neighborhoods in Boston. So many cute streets and great restaurants! The weather has been perfect (minus the rain) for exploring the city, popped into a few cute stores on Tremont street and grabbed brunch at Whaling in Oklahoma with a few girlfriends the other day. brunch was so good, I got the avocado toast, such a millennial I know! They have a great Asian fusion menu that’s perfect if you’re looking to mix up your typical brunch game. It was even nice enough for us to sit outside, yay for patio season!

Finished the day off with FOMU a fabulous vegan ice cream joint. I know what you’re think, vegan ice cream?!? I thought it was going to be gross too, but I kid you not, if no one had told me it was vegan I wouldn’t have known. It tasted so good! The texture was spot on for ice cream and it was delicious! What are you’re favorite spots in the South End?

Sustainable Living

What you should watch this Earth Day!

I love documentaries and there are so many great ones out there about the environment and ways to be more sustainable. It’s Earth Day, a day to remind us all that climate change is real, it is caused by humans, and it is up to us to change our behaviors before total catastrophe. A little heavy for Monday?

Maybe.

But tonight when you get home from work and you’re sitting down to decide what to watch you should choose one of these amazing documentaries, here are a few of my favorites.

1. A Plastic Ocean

From island shores, the ocean floor, to instead animals. Plastic is plaguing it oceans. This documentary takes a deep look at how the plastic build up is harming people, animals, and the overall health of our environment. Hopefully this documentary will inspire you to actually use that reusable water bottle in your kitchen, bring a reusable mug to the coffee shop in the morning, and stop buying single use plastic.

2. Chasing Coral

I love this one! See the beauty that is our deep ocean and learn how global warming is threatening the coral reefs. If you’ve never heard the term coral bleaching then you have to watch this one, it will break your heart! After watching this documentary you should look into your cities carbon neutral goals, or lack their of, and get involved! Write to your local representatives and ask them what they are doing to reduce carbon emissions in your home!

3. The True Cost

This is one of the first documentaries that really inspired me to make a change. Fast fashion is one of the biggest polluters on earth. Not only so many fast fashion brands pollute water and the air, they participate in dangerous and in humane labor practices. Think before you shop!

4. Our Planet

A Netflix 8 part series that covers our jungles, coral reefs, frozen tundras, and all the other ecosystems that make up our planet. I’ve been watching this one and it is gut wrenching to see the destruction we as a human race have caused. I wouldn’t recommend binging this one, it is a lot to take in.

Happy Earth Day everyone, let me know in the comments what you’ve don’t recently to love more sustainably!

Spring Garden

Well after a small break from blog posts I’m happy to be posting this adorable spring outfit. March is tough in Boston you want to do fun spring content but it is still very much winter outside. Now that it is finally warm out I love strolling through the public gardens. The flowers are all in bloom, the duck boats are up and running and it is finally warm enough to get outside and enjoy!

Love this spring outfit, classic navy and white stripes never gets old. I paired it with an older white vineyard vines skirt, silk scarf, and classic sperry boat shoes.
