A Guide to Visiting Boston

Similar TopJeans | Sneakers

Today on the blog, I’m sharing my favorite places all around Boston. I’ve fallen in love with this city during my 5 years here, and it will forever have a special place in my heart!

1. The Boston Public Library

This place is so so beautiful. The old marble staircases and lions are beautiful. I love sitting down in the study space with the classic green lights on a weekend afternoon to get some work though. Just remember it’ll be totally silent though haha! There is also a beautiful courtyard for the nicer days.

2. The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

This place is truly magical and one of the most unique museums I have ever been to. I love the history behind it and the thought that Isabella put into creating and organizing her collection. There is courtyard here as well. I always bring my friends here when they visit and everyone loves it! It’s amazing to me that’s just down the street from my home!

3. Faneuil Hall

This is the perfect place to walk around and get a little taste of everything. You can spend some time looking around and shopping before stopping in Quincy Market for some lunch. s an is a whole variety of food including lobster mac and cheese or lobster roll and cannolis! It’s also a short walk over to the North End.

4. Boston Common and the Swan Boats

The Common and Esplanade are beautiful during the warmer months! They are right next to Newbury and Boylston St. too! It’s the perfect opportunity to take a walk and have a picnic. You can even rent a bike and ride around or rent a kayak on the Charles to see even more. In the winter, there is ice skating at the Frog Pond! The views are beautiful and it’s a nice way to put away the phone and just enjoy the city 🙂

5. TD Garden

TD Garden is always having fun events going on whether it’s a concert or a sports game. Definitely check out what’s going on and grab tickets for something fun. There are also some great places for a bite to eat or a drink before or after!

6. Seaport

Seaport is right by the Harbor and has some great restaurants and drinks as well. It’s really fun to walk around and sit by the water when it’s warmer. Definitely bring a jacket if you’re planning on sitting outside! It gets a little windy!

7. Boston Harbor Islands

There are boats that will take you island hopping in the Harbor. This is a fun way to get out of the city for a bit and see a different view! Check out the schedule online for all the details!

8. Lawn on D

The Lawn on D is always hopping with live music and drinks! It’s a great place to hang out on the weekend with friends. There is a whole schedule of who is playing and what’s going on every night so check that out before heading over!

9. Sam Adams or Harpoon Brewery

The pretzels at Harpoon are amazing and either is a great place to meet up with friends just to catch up or watch a game! The tours are really fun as well.

10. The Institute of Contemporary Art

This is another great museum to check out on days you might not want to be outside! It’s located in Seaport and perfect to add to your day in between exploring the area!

If you’re interested in the best spots to eat, I shared a bunch of my favorites in this post!

Travel Outfit

Jean Jacket | Similar T-Shirt | Similar Leggings | Converse

Yesterday I took a quick trip home and I’m already headed back to Boston tonight! I wanted to share my airport outfit with you all today 🙂

This is the perfect comfy but warm combo for a plane. This classic striped shirt and jean jacket combo from J. Crew is a no brainer. I usually think planes are a little chilly so I like to have some sort of sweater or light jacket.

These leggings are a few years old from J. Crew too! I love them because they are legging in the back and leather in the front. I linked the Spanx leggings for y’all though! I’m thinking I’m going to have to get a pair of those too!

I hope you all have a great Friday 🙂

Kut From the Kloth Jacket and Ripped Jeans

Similar Jacket | Cami | Similar Jeans | Similar Heels

So excited to pullout the shorts and heels soon y’all! I like a little bit of snow, but the summer and summer clothes are for sure my favorite. I wanted to share this ripped jeans and leather combo with you all today!

I wear this jacket in both the fall and spring. It really versatile and pairs well with pants or ripped jean shorts for chillier spring nights. I love that it has both the suede and the leather.

I found a really similar pair of jeans at J. Crew currently. I have really loved the high waist and the lighter wash of this pair. They are a super great transitional piece too. This cami is a great basic to stock up on. It is fully stocked in a bunch of colors. I also have the black and wear them both with so many different things!

And these shoes are my favorite part of the outfit. I love the criss cross straps and high heel. They add a little pop to any all neutral outift! They are way easier to pair with things than I originally thought which is always great too!

5 Things I Do Every Day To Help Me Be Productive

Jacket | Similar Leggings | Sneakers | Sunglasses

Happy Friday friends! We made it through another week!

Love this LuluLemon zip up for windy days outside. This color goes with everything and it’s so flattering! Mine is a size 4 for reference.

Today on the blog I wanted to share about 5 things I’ve been doing every day to help keep be motivated and jumpstart my productivity for the day!

1. Make my bed.

I started doing this back in September when I got back to Boston. It has made such a difference because it motivates me to then clean up any clothes or the kitchen if needed. I always take a minute to at least make my bed and then I can go about my day knowing my bed is made even if nothing else has been accomplished. Plus it’s always way better to get into a bed that was made at the end of the day 🙂

2. Drink a glass of water.

This helps me to wake up and jumpstarts my metabolism for the day. I’d rather put water into my body first thing before all of the coffee hits.

3. Write in my planner/run through my day.

I always write down any appointments or specific times I need to remember in my planner. This helps me to not miss anything or mix up the times for things. I also write down all of my assignments for school and clinical as well as my blog agenda for the day. This helps keep everything straight and put my mind at ease with all the little things!

4. Organize my lunch for tomorrow.

This one is super important on the nights when I work the next morning. It’s nice to not have to through a whole salad together in the morning when I’m running out the door and already have it prepared before hand. If I’m going to pick something up, I think about what will be close and make a plan!

5. Run through my skincare and evening routine.

I always wash my face, take my vitamins, and put on moisturizer before bed. Even if I’m away for the weekend, I stick to this routine. It helps me to unwind after a long day and know that I’ve taken good care of my skin. Bonus points if you floss too, haha! I’m working on adding that to this routine. It’s much easier adding it into an established routine than having to remember to do it separately every day.

*Going to the gym.

This isn’t an everyday thing, but I try to go at least two or three mornings a week when I don’t have to work super early. It helps get my energy up and clear my head which is always nice!

Hope you all have a great weekend! 🙂

Abercrombie Top + Aritzia Belt

Sunglasses | Top | Belt | Jeans | Necklace

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great start to your week. I’m so excited it’s Tuesday because we have class off for Spring Break, woohoo! I’m still working the rest of the week so today is basically my Spring Break! That’s better than nothing though, right?!?

Anyway, my friend and I went to the Dean Lewis Mix Lounge this weekend and he was so good. He answered a few questions and sang a few of his songs. He had some funny answers for sure! It was at the Harborside Inn in Seaport which was really cute! We also walked around a bit and got lunch in the North End. I had the lobster ravioli!

This shirt is available in four colors for $25 dollars currently! I love this lavender color and the off-the-shoulder detail. I’m wearing an XS for reference. I found this belt at Aritzia last spring and it’s still in stock. I would definitely size up if you want to wear it around your normal waist. It fits really well with high-waisted jeans though!

I also really love these shades. I always pull them out when I want to change it up from my other pair. I linked them for you as well!

J Crew Jacket + Peplum Top

Jacket | Similar Top 1|Similar Top 2|JeansSimilar Boots

So happy it’s Friday y’all! Hope you’ve had a great week! This is one of my favorite jackets from J. Crew. It is perfect for all those in between spring and fall days. I love the olive color because it pretty much goes with everything. Mine is a S for reference and I love that I can wear it with chunky sweaters and cardigans.

I’ve had this top for years, maybe junior year of high school?!? And I still constantly reach for it for work and on the weekends! It’s the best of both worlds. I love that though because I feel like it’s easy to get tired of clothes and feel like you have nothing to wear with a closet full of clothes, but not with this one! I linked up a similar one for y’all and will keep a look out for it.

I’m wearing my fav DL1961 one jeans of course. I’m wearing a size 25 for reference.

These boots are Stuart Weitzman probably two years back. I linked a similar budget friendly option!

Also, if you watch my stories you’ll probably recognize Tatte. It just optioned a location on campus this year and has become a highly frequented lunch spot haha! I would definitely recommend the B.L.A.T. and the cheesecake cups for sure!

I can’t believe it’s March! Hope you all have some nice spring weather coming your way!
