Head of the Charles Regatta

It was regatta weekend hear in Boston, Even though today was a bit chilly and rainy I made it out to see some of the races. There were tons of people cheering on the competitors. Tons of vendors to from Brooks Brothers, which I loved, Dooney and Bourke, right down Flat bread pizza company and Dunkin Donuts! And of course, my favorite, Kettle Corn!! Despite the rain it was still a great day!

Charles Street

My family came into the city today to see me at school and we spent the afternoon on Charles Street. Any one who has been to Boston has probably heard of Charles Street. It has got to be one of the prettiest and cutest places in the city. Streets are lined with trees, BEAUTIFUL buildings and tons of super cute shops, boutiques and restaurants.
We had dinner at an AMAZING restaurant called Toscano, it was honestly one of the best dinners I've had in a really long time. Best gnocchi I have ever had!!
There are lots of super cute boutique shops and antique stores just packed with amazing find and interesting things you would never find anywhere else! I found this super cute ring in one store that is just packed to the gills with jewelry, everything from pins, and pearls to diamonds and tiaras, you could just spend hours in this one store looking at all their merchandise! I got this super cute ring for only $10.
So if your ever in Boston definitely spend some time on Charles street, you'll never want to leave!
Until next time,
Happy Blogging

Rainy Days

Its been raining for days! I like a day of rain now and then but there can definitely be too much rain. But all this rain reminded me of one of my favorite movies, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the famous closing scene in the rain. So I've been playing around with a site you've probably heard of, called Polyvore, and put together some Holly approved rain accessories.
A classic trench, of course. I just love this umbrella, I'm a fan of plaid so of course the Burberry pattern it cute, plus its timeless. In the movie Holly wears a little pair of black shoes, but I wouldn't suggest wearing your flats in such weather. Trust me, I know from experience, the rain can be just too much for your flats to handle sometimes. A cute rain boot can be the perfect solution instead. And while your covering what ever cute outfit you have one under all your rain wear, some classic pearls will go with everything! With cute rain accessories like these, the rain can stay as long as it wants! (well, ok maybe not forever)
Until the sun comes back out, Happy Blogging!

The big one!

Being a junior in college this year, my friends and I have started celebrating the big 2-1 ! My roomie just turned 21 on Sunday, and I found the cutest gift for her big birthday.
There is a company called Lolita that makes the cutest martini glasses. I was given this one not to long ago and decided that it was the cutest gift for someone turning 21! They have so many different patterns, for every occasion!! They are great too, even for those who aren't going to drink from them, they look supper cute on a self or filled with some candy. They all also have a different recipe on the bottom each which is super cute!
