It only took a few years (yes, years) but I’ve finally found a romper I love. So many I tried on had some issue whether it was a short torso or low neckline or loose strapless top — obviously I tried! I found this one in the Nordstrom sale and unfortunately it’s since sold out but this romper and this romper are the same silhouette. I love that it’s a little loose, cinched at the waist and has long sleeves. I’ve worn it out to dinner a few times and to run errands on the weekend because it’s just the easiest thing to throw on. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is still on with tons of amazing deals. I rounded up a few favorites so you don’t have to sift through everything — although if that’s your cup of tea, this sale isn’t a bad one to peruse! If you’re looking for a few classics, you can’t go wrong with these skinny jeans or this leather jacket. Pieces like this swing dress and these tan ankle boots will work now and into fall. I have my eye on this pretty cutout dress for a few events, it would also be perfect to wear to weddings. A shirtdress like this one is cute for the office if you have plans after work — I’d also wear it on the weekend with this floppy hat. A few other pieces that caught my eye are this leather dress, this faux fur coat and these strappy black sandals. If you missed my review of the beauty exclusives, you can find it here. Happy sale shopping!
Last week Ray and I took a long weekend and went up to Boston to explore a new city and visit friends. In short, we love Boston! I got tons of recommendations from friends and co-workers before we left so we were able to pack as much into our quick trip as possible. Our very first stop was Mike’s Pastry for pistachio cannoli, then wandering North End until it was time to meet our friends for an amazing dinner at Lolita.
Friday started with breakfast at The Paramount and a walk around the beautiful public garden. Newbury Street, where we shot these photos, had amazing shopping. We happened to catch the first day of the Kit and Ace pop up shop in Beacon Hill and were both immediately obsessed with the tees we bought! Beacon Hill is the cutest neighborhood to wander, we went back on Saturday to see more of the pretty townhouses. After working up an appetite, we went to lunch at Tatte on the recommendation of the girls at Kit and Ace (the Green & Nutty salad was delectable). For dinner we went to Row 34 and tried oysters for the first time!
We did the jazz brunch at The Beehive on Saturday before walking along the Charles River (made a note to bring our kayaking gear next trip) and through Beacon Hill one last time. Our last stop was to run up the steps at Harvard Stadium — what a sight to see! It was such a fun trip, I can’t wait to plan our next! What East Coast destinations should be on the list?
