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?

Public Gardens Picnic

I love living right down the street from the Boston Public Gardens. They are so beautiful, the swan boats, the ducklings, and all the flowers, it is perfection. Continuing with the gingham theme this summer I got this great skirt from J. Crew Factory, not only does it have a fabulous bow but it has pockets!!!! Men will never understand the struggle of not having pockets. I paired it with a navy crewneck sweater from J.Crew and my Jacks. My friend and I hung out in the gardens, relaxed on the grass watched all the swan boats go back and enjoyed some Welch’s non-alcoholic Rose. I adore rose but if you’re looking to enjoy something light and fruity without getting a buzz this is perfect for you!

I am in love with this necklace and earrings set from Peachy Pendants and adorable Etsy shop. The owner Jen is so kind and helpful! I was really happy with the quality of the set. So many companies charge so much for monogrammed accessories, Peachy Pendants is affordable! If you are looking to get brides maids gifts this is the perfect brand for inexpensive, quality accessories.

Sailor Sailor in Gingham

I plan to live in gingham this summer! I am in love with this adorable dress from Sailor Sailor. The fun bell sleeves are so preppy and the gingham is a classic. The dress is super comfortable, the material is perfect for those hot summer days, now we just need to wait for it to actually be hot out!

Lately I have been channeling Jackie O in a lot of my outfits. As she famously said “Pearls are always appropriate.” I brought out some of my favorite pearls for this look. The pearl studs I always wear are from Tiffany’s, they were one of the first presents Mike ever gave me four years ago when we started dating. My pearl bracelet is from KJP, a classic go to for me.

This dress is a size small and I wish I had gone with an extra small. I’m wear a size 4 at most places but this dress ran a little big. I ended up taking the pearl necklace I had been wearing and using it as a belt! Never be scared to get creative with fashion. As Tim Gunn would say “make it work!”

Thank you Sailor Sailor for sending me this dress. As always all opinions are my own.
