boston + a giveaway

Late last week JD and I made the quick trip up to Boston for a couple of days. He took a course in Salem and I spent my time wandering around solo. I had chocolate chip pancakes for lunch at The Paramount, strolled through the Public Garden in the snow, and did some (window) shopping on Newbury. It was perfect. 

This is the one and only outfit we shot while there - it was just too cold (and very windy). Layers were key. For our drive up and first afternoon in town I wore a simple chambray shirt with a gray sweater on top with black pants, and impractical boots. I have been wearing my sorels so much lately, I needed a break. The ice topped brick sidewalks of Beacon Hill were clearly the ideal place to do so. I managed to maintain my balance but ended up back in snow boots when we went back out for dinner later that evening.
