Happy Thursday guys! I am so excited for this weekend as my boyfriend and I have planned to go and explore our new city. We recently moved to Charlotte, NC and honestly we know it’s super early but we both love it here. However, these photos were taken a little while ago around Boston area, so it makes me a bit nostalgic looking at them.
On a fun note, I’ve been wearing this top non-stop! I love stripes as a good transitional piece and this peplum top couldn’t be more perfect. The material is super soft, and I love how it hugs you in all the right places.
Below I just wanted to share a few of my favorite things about Boston and New England area in general:
1. Prettiest Fall Foliage
This maybe a little bias of me to say, but I think Boston and New England in general have the most photographic foliage compared to any other place. There’s something about that perfect crisp air, still green grass and pop of colorful leaves. As you may have guessed, going on hikeS, apple/pumpkin picking are definitely among the most popular activities to really appreciate the stunning natural beauty that New England has to offer.
These was taken last year during the peak foliage season.
First apple picking with our pup.
2. The Red Brick Freedom Trail and Gorgeous Cobble Stone
I don’t remember taking a photo of it, but thinking back I should have. It’s just always so darn busy in those cobble stone locations that even taking a selfie would be impossible. However, if you ever make a trip to Boston, be sure to visit the Freedom trail and of course the Boston Common.
3. Yoga at the Post Office Square
Every summer, Post Office square hosts free work out classes outdoors. For those of you who don’t know where it is, it is basically a small piece of green in the middle of the city that it has a relaxing area with a small field and water fountain in the middle. My co-worker and I used to go there almost every time they offered free yoga classes. It was a relaxing way to unwind after a busy work day, and also fun to just workout outside. If you are interested, here’s their schedule.
4. Best Seafood
I think this applies throughout New England and not just the Boston area. However, my boyfriend and I used to celebrate our anniversary at the Meritage Restaurant in Boston, so this place will always be a little special to us. They serve the most whimsical and delicious dishes you will ever have, not joking. Another unique aspect of that restaurant is they have a whole wall of different wines, so the whole menu is carefully curated to give you suggestions of the wines that pair well with specific dishes. If having great food wasn’t enough, their atmosphere is so relaxing (helps when you are in a busy city) and they have the most beautiful water view in Boston. Honestly, this is just a small amount of detail, but I could write a whole separate post just about the New England sea food, it’s that good.
5. Newbury Street
Oh the famous Newbury Street of Boston, who doesn’t love it. The convenience of luxurious shopping at your finger tips, charming living and exclusive restaurant locations, you really can’t go wrong. This picture is not the best quality but we took it on my birthday weekend on our first trip to the Hermes store in Boston.
Obviously, this is just the tip of the iceberg on what Boston and New England have to offer, but I really enjoy sharing these moment with you guys. If you have any favorite locations, share down below 🙂
Thanks for stopping by,
