Saturday, my cousin, aunt, mom, and I went to Boston for the weekend. My cousin, Maddie, has her own blog about artistic musings, so both of us thought of the trip as the perfect opportunity for blogging about! It was so much fun having a weekend for just us girls, and of course, it included lots of shopping! We stayed at the Raddison hotel which is located not far from Chinatown. Saturday night we took the T to Cambridge and went to the Garment District, which is a thrift store we heard about. Afterwards, we went back and grabbed a 9 o'clock dinner at McCormick and Schimck's, a restaurant down the street from the hotel. We were extremely tired by the time we got back to our room, but Maddie and I still had enough energy to have a photo shoot with the clothes we got.
The next morning, we went for a quick swim, packed up, and checked out of the hotel to go prancing around the city for the rest of the day. We went to Park Street to grab some Starbucks and go shopping. By the time we were out of H&M, it was time to eat a late lunch and go home.
On our way there.
It was rainy when we checked in, so our view of the city was a little covered in fog.

Maddie found these glasses at the Garment District and wore them to dinner.
The service at the restaurant was a little slow, but it picked up once we got our food.
I got a crispy buffalo chicken sandwich. I liked the contrast between the spicy chicken and tangy bleu cheese.
Alice in Wonderland ads were all over the city.
City lights from the balcony.
The next morning, the weather cleared up and it was much sunnier.
We just had to go to the pool before we left!
We went to get some Starbucks to re-energize because we didn't get any sleep Saturday night.
Maddie couldn't stop drinking water!
My mom and aunt.
We look so tired!
Wrong city, dude!
The blue-eyed beauties!
We thought this window display was so pretty!
I wore my Marc Jacobs shirt I got for $28.
The roasted peanuts smelled like...cotton candy?!
I went to H&M for the first time! We don't have one in NH that I know of, so I was excited to finally shop there...it's my new favorite store!
