SWEATER: H&M (wearing size medium) | DENIM: Paige Jeans | BOOTS: Callisto (I went up half a size!) | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton ‘Pochette Metis’ (buy used HERE) | BEANIE: old (similar HERE) | BELT: Gucci (did a sizing review in yesterday’s post) | LIPS: ‘Blanekty’ + ’Stripdown‘
I got this sweater right before we went to Boston & it ended up being perfect for the weather there. It’s a thicker material & is pretty warm (a little itchy tho!) but it was nice for daytime w/the sun out. The fit is not the best – it’s a little short & maybe not the greatest fit but for the look, warmth, & price point – I really liked it! (Read this post for a softer version of this sweater!) While in Boston, I had tons of you recommend visiting Beacon Hill to take photos so that’s what we did – and it was so so beautiful there! We literally did everything you all recommended the most under one of my IG photos & loved everything! From the restaurants, to the shopping, to the sites, etc. – it was all so dreamy and so fun. Boston is definitely a place we’d like to visit again. John and I were talking about how it’s one of the cities we would enjoy living in – which is kind of rare for us. We love low key, smaller cities [basically more of a slow paced life style for day to day] but of course love traveling & visiting larger cities. However at one point we looked at each other and were like “this is totally one of those larger cities we could so live in!”. There’s something about Boston that is so different. Now I am really wanting to visit Cape Cod as well!
Okay, totally rambling. Just FYI – I moved the Louis Vuitton wallet giveaway end time to 5pm TODAY. It was going to end at midnight last night and my blog got bogged down w/traffic and some couldn’t log on. But, everything is working now.
I will announce the winner in Thursday blog post and I will also have a really fun giveaway Thursday as well.
ALSO! I got tons of requests for blog posts on GIFT IDEAS so yesterdays post was all about gifts for someone who is hard to shop for or “that friend who has everything”! Lol. So far the feedback I’ve gotten about it has been so great – so many of you have e-mailed me excited to have found gift ideas from that post. I’ve had requests for other gift guides for kids & men – so let me know if you have a specific gift guide request!
