I’ve always considered Boston an intimidating metropolitan city. You know, the kind with lots of pollution and anti-tourist natives– like, say, New York City. My first trip to Boston couldn’t have been farther from the picture I had falsely painted in my head. Not only were we welcomed more than hospitably by Kyle’s college buddies, we made friends with our Uber driver, a handful of Harvard and MIT students– nbd, and a variety of other Bostonian randoms we encountered throughout the day. Kyle and I visited Fenway, walked through the city’s pristine public garden, strolled down Freedom Trail, hung out on the Harvard campus, and had a photoshoot (surprise) at the truly stunning Mother Church of Christian Science.
We planned our trip right before the weekend of the 15th anniversary of September 11th, so I felt it only appropriate to wear something patriotic in a city with such rich national history. Due to some potentially chilly inclement weather, I styled this frilly drop waist sundress with my first ever light wash denim jacket from J.Crew Factory. Yes, you read that right– I’ve never owned a denim jacket before. Packing for three months of traveling, immediately after moving out of your apartment, is just as trying as it sounds, so I’ve been picking up new “New Engand-y” things, like this incredibly versatile light wash denim jacket, as needed. Head to the bottom of this post for full outfit details!
I haven’t been this happy with a purchase in quite some time, and I’ve already ordered the darker wash from J.Crew Factory, as well. I purchased an XS, and it’s perfectly fitted with just enough stretch to cover thicker garments, like sweater dresses, in the fall.
Have any of y’all been to Boston before? We’ll be back in the next few weeks, so if you have any restaurant or museum suggestions, I’d really appreciate hearing them! Have a great rest of your week!
