It really doesn't get better than a Fall getaway in New England. My partner was traveling to Boston for work and after a crazy busy couple of weeks, I decided to take the weekend off and tag along. Very happy I did!
Boston is so rich with history Two hundred year old brownstones, cobblestone streets and ancient church bells ringing in the distance... It's a stark change when you come from a city that's constantly under construction. New York has history too, but not like this! I think of it as the American version of Vienna or Rome. While considerably younger, there are few US cities with as much history in every building.
I spent most of the weekend walking up and down Newbury Street, shopping and stuffing my face with chowda. I didn't buy much, but I did pick up these white leather Jack Purcells along the way. I'm hoping they will stay clean longer than my white canvas ones! It was just brisk enough to layer up but I kept my layers light with this paper-thin italian yarn sweater and lightweight scarf. Thin sweaters are like my t-shirts in the Fall. They're the perfect base to build on. I wore my hopsack wool trousers again, but took them to a more sporty place with the sneakers. Don't be afraid to dress down your trousers! These aren't your Father's suit pants.
Wishing I could go back already. But alas, back to the New York grind!
