Old Boston Charm

Sunday, November 29, 2015

I have spent 21 Thanksgiving weekends in Massachusetts with family, though I can't remember the last time we explored the city of Boston just a few minutes away. It is a strange but nice feeling to realize how quickly my cousins and I have grown. What was once a weekend of DIY board games has become college talks over brunch at the blink of an eye. We finally spent this past weekend traveling through different areas of the city, with my favorite stop being the historic neighborhood of Beacon Hill.


Coat: Forever 21 | Sweater: Forever 21 (old, similar here) | Bag: Sole Society
Skirt: Zara (alternative here) | Boots: DSW (old, similar here)

These photos were taken on Acorn Street, a narrow cobblestone pathway lined with quaint townhouses that had once been inhabited by carriage coachmen. It is often referred to as the most photographed street in America, and rightfully so. With an unrefined road surface and autumnal decor lining the brick walls, this path is a testament to the beautiful simplicity of an earlier time.

Other areas we visited included the famous Faneuil Hall and of course, an afternoon pick-me-up at Blackbird Donuts. Despite the consistent gloom in the sky on Saturday, we had the best time discovering these little stops that have always been just minutes away. At this rate, I cannot wait to see where each new Thanksgiving takes us. Let me know how you spent this past week in the comments below!

  2. I can see why it is the most photographed street in America. Stunning! I can feel you. We used to play with my cousins but now things are completely different. It's funny how times change so fast!
    Love the look!

  4. Absolutely loving your coat and turtleneck, Christina, and the street looks stunning! We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here so I wasn't up to much during the weekend, though I do think catching up on sleep is bliss in its own way.

    Haha, enjoy the week, Christina!
