PublicGardens 5

 Jacket & Bag: Zara / Shirt: DKNYC / Pants: Gap / Earrings: unknown (similar) / Shoes: Tory Burch

Last week Doug and I went with some friends to see Book of Mormon at the Boston Opera House. After dinner at Parish Cafe and a fun walk through the Public Gardens we found ourselves at the theater laughing hysterically throughout the entire show. Although a bit crude, it was the best show I have ever seen and I highly recommend grabbing some tickets before they leave at the end of the month! Here is a sneak peek of the opening act, performed at the Tony Awards in 2012:

Toast of the Town


Last week I had the pleasure of attending a blogger dinner hosted by Georgina at Boston Chops in Boston’s South End. The dinner was spectacular–filled with friends, good food, and lots of sparkle!


Georgina had every table exquisitely decorated with crystals, fantastic monogramed place cards, fun straws, gift bags, and gorgeous Karla Cassidy floral arrangements. I was seated at a table of other fantastic bloggers, including real life ballerina, Shelby, and a DIY crochet whiz and Etsy shop owner, Lianna

Thank you, Georgina, for planning such a wonderful event!

Hat & Scarf: Lord & Taylor / Glasses: Prada / Lips: Nars Lip Gloss in Norma

Shades of Grey (2)

These Dolce Vita boots are my favorite and have held up well!  The key is making sure not to wear them when its going to be snowy or slushy.  Those days are for rubber boots!  My grey sweater is a few years old but perfectly soft and cozy, especially for a chilly day in the city. I finished off my monochrome look with a cashmere hat & scarf. Cozy cozy!

Saturday in the city was my “birthday.” Doug had planned me a birthday weekend back in September, but our moving, weddings, and business trips got in the way.  First stop on Saturday was at the TD Garden — we had our photos taken there on the Bruins’ ice!  Then we headed to the MFA to check out the John Singer Sargent watercolors exhibit and then to the Holiday Market at the French Cultural Center. After dinner in the North End we finished the night back at the Garden for the Bruins vs. Penguins game.  Overall a great belated birthday outing!
