off the shoulder recap in Boston

Hello from Boston!

We attended a wedding this weekend in Boston area which gave us an opportunity to do a quick shoot despite the rain.

Boston has a special place in our hearts for hubby and I. It was the first city I ever visited before my permanent move to the States over 10 years ago. Hubby also lived there for a long time before his move to SF and has still so many close friends in the area.

We stayed at the Copley Square Hotel which is at the heart of downtown Boston (special thanks to Abel for finding this gem). As one of the oldest cities in the States, Boston architecture represents diversity from modern buildings like the John Hancock Center to the romanesque buildings around Copley Square (think warm tone brick walls with rough textures). A significant change of scenery than the industrial looking SoMa to say the least.

On the last day, we toured Newbury street which a shopping mekka for Bostonians. Just like architecture, the fashion here is very different. The style is a lot more conservative and preppy, I think I only pointed out one young woman in distressed jeans on the entire street. You also couldn’t ignore the ladies who brought their A-game lunching at the Stephanie’s, a famous hangout right on the corner of Newbury and Exeter. Wonder if there’s a SF equivalent? There’s every kind of store from Rag & Bone, Joie Clothing to high end boutiques & Dior. There’s something for everyone – Newbury street is a must see!

We couldn’t conclude our tour without a quick stop at Thinking Cup, a coffee shop that serves Stumptown beans. You could quickly point that this was a local student and academic hang out due to its proximity to so many schools in the area.

Blouse: Topshop // Jeans: J Brand // Shoes: Adidas // Bag: Alexander Wang (similar here)

Given it was rainy and cold, I paired this white off the shoulder top with with J Brand distressed jeans and Adidas Superstars. You know, the simple touristy look. 🙂 I’m afraid this won’t be the last time you’ll be seeing me in an off the shoulder blouse, I’m obsessed! They make the best summer tops.

Hope you enjoyed the photos!

  1. I’ve been so obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops & dresses lately, so I’ve been trying to stock up! I especially love black or white options. You look lovely – I have yet to visit Boston but it’s definitely on my list of places to visit!
