Right after my trip to Seattle, I came home, unpacked, repacked, and headed to Boston. The frigidness that was Seattle the week before helped prepare me for the Boston weather, although when my sister told me to pack Long Johns all I could think was, “What?? I live in California. I don’t own Long Johns!” I felt like this youtube video of Californians trying to understand winter survival hacks.
Even though Boston made me feel like a total pansy when it comes to weather (and it wasn’t even snowing!) it was still beautiful and I loved visiting. Here are some iPhone leftovers that didn’t quite make it on to Instagram.
[above] My sister has been snapchatting me brunches at Lulu’s Allston for a while and I couldn’t wait to try their White Trash Hash and their pumpkin cream cheese-stuffed toast. They did not disappoint. [below] We took a stroll through Boston commons and the crunchy leaves on the ground were so very fall.
I’ve always wanted to try an ice bar, and we stopped at one in down. We barely stayed 30 minutes, since everything (even the glasses) are made of ice, and it’s a bit chilly in there. I downed a hot toddy shortly afterwards to warm up.
Exploring my sister’s campus (Boston University) a bit. You can shop this cozy look here.
The sister and I shared a fancy dinner at Island Creek Oyster Bar. For starters, we sipped on spiced fall cocktails and slurped oysters. For the main course, we split a lobster roll and a lobster pasta that is out of this freaking world.
