Last weekend, before the streets closed to the masses flocking to the Boston Marathon, we did a little exploring around Beacon Street. I’ve always enjoyed the rustically cobbled streets that are lined with gluttony. Here you can feast on beautiful, trendy styles from boutique windows or on literal Italian pastries in one of the many delicious savory shops. Beacon makes for perfect detour if walking through the Commons on a springy day. My second favorite part about this area, besides the pure unadulterated New England charm, is the view of the Charles when you reach the end. The sailboats conversationate on the water like nautical fans, making it the perfect place to find a spot to enjoy the scenery dockside.
We once again were graced with weather that didn’t illicit frostnip, so I donned my thrifted blush jacket as an afternoon statement. In admiring the style of fellow fashionistas I’ve reaelized one popular spring trend is a pastel jacket. When I found this one, I fell in love with the masculine blazer cut. It is one of the few peices I haven’t ripped the shoulder pads out of because the mid-thigh length offsets the boxy cut. However, the inability to button made it a little drafty to the cold Bostonian air & I definitely see a belt DIY in the future.
I paired the outfit with a classic white oxford & brown booties to empathesize the blush tones. I found gray/black tones complimented the pink, as the sassy nature of this blush makes it hestitant to play with others.
After frolicking the Common, it was time for a tasty treat. One of my new favorites is Cookie Monstah, a local food truck that serves delicous homemade cookies with your choice of a ice cream scoop or as a ice cream sandwich. Being a lover of all mint tastes I went with the Green Monstah, which I can assure you was a tastebud home run.
All my peices are seasoned favorites, and are no longer available for purchase. Below I linked some options for a similiar look.
Whats your favorite local treat?
