A Summer Day in Boston Common

Dress | Sandals | Handbag

Ryan and I love to take advantage of long weekends, so we took a trip to Boston over Memorial Day weekend to visit some good friends and get away from Chicago for a few days. I had been to Boston once before and was so excited to go back. If you haven’t been, it’s such a quaint city that reminds me of Europe and is a must visit in my opinion. There are so many gorgeous historical buildings and tiny cobblestone back roads, you could spend a full day just walking around taking photos, which we did.

One of my favorite things about Boston is Boston Common. We have quite a few small parks in Chicago, but nothing really like Boston Common. Its almost like a mini Central Park. I loved that we were there for Memorial Day weekend because they had a very special tribute to all the military members from Massachusetts who have passed away in the line of duty. We didn’t really plan it intentionally but it was very cool to be in such a historic city for Memorial Day.

One of the best parts about where we stayed is that we had to walk through Boston Common to get to Newbery street – where all the amazing shopping – is so we walked through it every day we were there! Our first day was really hot and humid so we stopped to get some fresh squeezed lemonade – one of my all-time favorite summer things. We spent the rest of the day shopping along Newbury and ended the night with drinks on the harbor and dinner in little Italy with our friends.

I got so many compliments on this dress – I was so surprised because it’s one of those throw on and go dresses that are super comfortable. I wasn’t planning on posting it but since so many people seemed to like it I thought I would share! Also, I didn’t get a great shot of my sandals, but they are from target and I wear them almost every day. They are super comfortable and really cute – they also go with everything. If you like a little sparkle like me, definitely check them out!
