The Ultimate Holiday Guide to Boston

There are so many fun things to do in Boston around the Holidays. This year Thanksgiving is late so the Holidays are going to go by in a flash! Be sure to get tickets now and schedule in the Must-Do’s.

BYOB Trolley Lights Tour! This is so fun, it always, always sells out. Many dates are already completely booked so if you want to do it I suggest you book tickets ASAP. Its BYOB so pack some festive holiday drinks, toss on an ugly Christmas sweater and enjoy.

Black Nativity! This event is a Boston Staple, its called a “theatrical wonderment”  on their website and trust me it really lives up to the hype. It only runs on the weekends so reserve a night to go and see it, trust me you’ll want to go back year after year.

Boston Ballet The Nutcracker! Probably the most obvious, and for a reason, the Boston Ballet’s annual performance of The Nutcracker is spectacular! I have almost every other year and every time I go I enjoy it. Get dressed up, have a glass or Prosecco and enjoy!

Skating at Frog Pond! Before you know it there will be snow on the ground. Skating at Frog Pond is a nice way to enjoy sometime outside despite the cold. Once the Common’s Christmas tree and holiday lights are up it is truly magical.

Slutcracker! If you’re looking for a fun night out with you S.O. or your friends look no further than The Slutcracker. What is the Sluthcracker you may ask, well Choreographer/Director Vanessa White used to dance The Nutcracker at a big ballet company, but was told she was “too big” to keep dancing for them, so she started The Slutcracker!  A parody or the original ballet this burlesque version is 18+ and is general admission so get there early.

Holiday Tea at The Boston Public Library! Looking for something quiet to do, maybe with a parent, older family member? The Holiday Tea at the Library is fantastic! It’s super easy to make reservations on their website and they even have a special holiday menu.

And there you have it! A booked solid Holiday season in Boston! Really there is so much to do and see during the holidays but these are my top priorities every year. So many years I have had trouble getting into the Holiday spirit but after attending just one of these event you will find yourself humming Christmas carols on the T. Let me know what you’re most looking forward to this Holiday season and be sure to follow me on Instagram to see all the fun things I am doing this season!BBNut2018 0413B2FC2AB3-0B9D-4836-9E4F-0F59F3EA2F68BBNut2018 01925D2246B3-DFA6-413D-A87D-695DA63441EF

Holiday Shopping Guide

Two words: Tartan Everything! I love dressing for the holidays, the rest of winter in New England can be pretty depressing so I take full advantage of the bright, colorful, fun outfits that come out every holiday. This year I picked out a few favorites that I wanted to share with you all.

1.Sail to Sable Tunic Top: this tunic is perfect for all your holiday occasions. It can be dressed up or down, the velvet color adds a little extra something. It is also super comfy and the long sleeves keep it appropriate for when the weather gets cold and snowy.  Limited stock in my Red Tunic but the is also available in the Navy Plaid version! 5D2246B3-DFA6-413D-A87D-695DA63441EF

2.Vineyard Vines Holiday Plaid Dress: I love the bell sleeve on this dress. A basic shift it is flattering on many different body shapes, and the plaid is holiday perfection! VV did a similar version on this dress in a Black Watch Plaid a couple of years ago that I was obsessed with! It even comes in a “Mommy and Me” version if you’re looking to match.

3.Cozy Fairisle Sweater from VV: I am constantly looking for holiday wear that I can keep wearing January-February. This sweater is just that, a cashmere blend that is super soft. 729BB4CE-B4BA-4410-9ABA-DE5AB6E4709E

4. J.Crew Velvet Jumpsuit: I have to say it has taken me a while to come around to the Jumpsuit trend, but I’m finally here and I am loving it. This one is so classic, perfect for any holiday party you have this season. Screen Shot 2019-11-18 at 4.23.29 PM.png

5. Plaid Ponte Pants from VV: First things first, Ponte pants are ridiculously comfortable! Plus these are plaid and have an adorable bow on the front? I told myself I would not buy yet another pair of plaid pants this year, but that is so not happening because I NEED these in my life!
