TRAVEL // WEEKEND GETAWAY IN BOSTON

IMG_0160

 A few weekends ago Craig and I took a quick weekend getaway to Boston for our birthdays. It also happened to be the coldest weekend we’ve had so far. Luckily we stayed at the Loews Boston Hotel (once home to the Boston Police Headquarters) which was conveniently located in Back Bay- one of my favorite Boston neighborhoods. We spent the weekend walking around Boston, exploring the area around the Loews and of course walking down Newbury Street. We brunched at Kitchen (order the donuts) and then did some Christmas shopping.

Boston is one of my favorite cities to explore on foot. There’s so much history and it’s small enough that you can cover a lot of ground walking. There’s so many beautiful parks and buildings around the city, particularly near our hotel.

After a long day of walking we settled on dinner at Lolita which I highly recommend if you’re in Boston and in the mood for Mexican. Since it was a chilly night and the Patriots were playing Sunday night football we decided to hunker down in our cozy room and watch the game on the enormous flat screen tv in our room. We snacked on the most delicious charcuterie plate (seriously one of the best I’ve ever had) and wine and cheered on the Patriots for our cozy king bed. If you’re thinking about a weekend getaway I can’t recommend the Loews Boston enough. Great convenient location, excellent service and our room was quiet, big and cozy. We can’t wait to go back!

HOLIDAY STYLE // GLITTER SNEAKERS AND PLAID MIDI SKIRT

IMG_7744IMG_7836IMG_7857IMG_7917IMG_8091IMG_7773

VINTAGE PLAID SKIRT (SIMILAR) // KEDS FOR KATE SPADE NEW YORK C/O // CROPPED KNIT SWEATER // SUNGLASSES // SCARF (40% OFF) // LOREN HOPE MARLEY CUFF, CARLY BRACELET, SARRA CUFF IN CRYSTAL (BACK IN STOCK!), HEX LINK BRACELET (FREE TWO DAY SHIPPING THROUGH 12/21 ON ORDERS OVER $100 )

I found this skirt a while ago at a vintage store in town and I have been dying to wear it but couldn’t decide how to style it. When I got these Keds for Kate Spade sneakers a few weeks back I knew they were a match made in heaven. I love the playfulness of the plaid skirt with the sparkly sneaker (not a style I’d typically reach for but perfect for the holidays). The sneakers would also be great with a pair of boyfriend jeans, and I plan to dress up the skirt for Christmas with a pair of pumps. Whatever is on your calendar for holiday parties, I’ve got you covered for outfit inspiration. Check out my holiday style guide here and holiday style shop here. And make sure you enter to win a $500 shopping spree to Bluefly here (today is the last day to enter!). Happy Friday!

P.S. I’m taking over the Sole Society Instagram account while I’m in Paris so follow along today and tomorrow for all my photos from my trip!

COLLARED SHIFT DRESS AND OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

IMG_1076IMG_1109IMG_1118IMG_1120IMG_1134IMG_1243IMG_1248IMG_1230

COLLAR SHIFT DRESS C/O (30% OFF WHEN YOU SPEND $50) // PLAID COAT C/O // OVER THE KNEE BOOTS // SUNGLASSES

While the hemline on this dress is probably a little bit shorter than I’m used to, the long sleeves and collar detail give it a more modest vibe. I paired it with my favorite over the knee boots which I think helps take your eye off the short hemline and elongates your legs. And because I can’t resist a good plaid coat I picked up this one from Chicwish (for under $100).
