Acorn Street

This past weekend, one of my girlfriends came to visit (as I was looking forward to in this post) and we spent a day in Boston and its charming neighborhood of Beacon Hill; more specifically, on famous Acorn Street! I was in awe of the foliage surrounding the historic homes and strewn across the gaslit streets and brick sidewalks, the overflowing flower boxes lining the windows, the unique knockers and pretty wreaths hanging on the brightly painted doors, and the assortment of pumpkins and gourds sat on the doorsteps.

Before heading into the city, we breakfasted on pastries from our local farmers market (indoors for the season) where one of the vendors gave me the sweetest compliment on my outfit.

Outfit details: Jack by BB Dakota coat (and in a gorgeous cranberry) | BP cardigan | H&M blouse | River Island skirt | Francesca's socks | Sam Edelman boots | 3.1 Phillip Lim x Target purse

This oxblood suede River Island skirt is a gorgeous addition to my fall wardrobe and reasonably priced for the quality. I layered this cardigan over the trumpet-sleeved blouse from this post, and trekked miles in these boots (featured here, here, and here).

We browsed the shops down Newbury Street, where I fell in love with paintings of Acorn Street done by a Boston street artist, and made our way up Commonwealth Avenue, then strolled through the Boston Common and Public Garden (our last visit here).

This gorgeous coat, which I instantaneously picked up after spotting in the window display of a Providence boutique, kept me warm draped over my shoulders in the chilly weather. When on, it cinches at the waist to create a flattering shape. I may have to pick it up in Cranberry! Did I mention it's just under $80?

Our final stop was Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, where we enjoyed a lunch of lobster rolls and viewed the stands and performing acts. Back in Providence, we had a candle-lit dinner double-date at all of our favorite snuggery, The Duck & Bunny.
