Tickets for the three different sessions are on sale now at www.beersummit.com, get them while their hot (must be 21+ to purchase)!
AND, I’ve found the perfect outfit for Harvest Fest! I’m very into volume this fall, and keeping it very casual but mixing in details to keep it fun and fresh. Volume on top, especially for a craft beer tasting can be more forgiving, if you catch my drift. This Design History sweater, via Ku de Ta at The Street in Chestnut Hill, was the perfect mix of casual/fun. The beautiful, rich merlot color with the overlapping front panel and cut-out neck details, make it the perfect top for the occasion. It’s light enough to wear in a packed space and can be styled up or down, depending on the occasion and your mood. I paired it with boyfriend jeans and flats for this look, but I’d definitely add booties to give you some height and to balance out the extra volume from your boyfriend jeans, if your pair is too ‘boyfriendy’ (read: baggy).
J.Crew Slim Broken in Boyfriend Jean – $145
TOPSHOP Ghillie Lace Up Flats – $45
Clinique Pop Lip Color in Berry Pop – $24
November first means the start of the ‘brrrs’, when you’re pairing your fall jacket with a heavy sweater and scarf and you’re still cold. It’s officially time to invest in this years winter coat and I’ve searched high and low and come up with my faves from boucle wraps to tailored with faux fur.
This weekend marks one of the most traditional Boston events, an autumnal mainstay, the 51st Head Of The Charles® Regatta, the world’s largest two-day regatta, attracting more than 11,000 rowers and 400,000 spectators to the banks of the Charles River.
Official Athletic Footwear and Official Athletic Apparel Sponsor, New Balance has created a custom shoe designed exclusively for the Regatta. Made in the USA, the 990v3 is inspired by the rich history of the Regatta as the world’s largest two-cday rowing competition and shared New England heritage. Bundle up with a matching windbreaker and space dye quarter zip while you’re at it!
Racing takes place this Saturday, October 17 and Sunday, October 18, between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
Noelle of Rue le Chat, Amanda of Prim and Propah and Becky of Pop & Circumstance and I (apparently more excited than I thought) celebrating the grand opening of World Market, the first location of the chain, here in Massachusetts!
If you aren’t familiar, you should get familiar. World Market is more experience than store, with so much to look at, I didn’t know where to start. It’s almost like a Pier One, meets Home Goods, meets gourmet snack aisle of Stop & Shop meets local package store. There’s everything from home decor, to furniture to wine and edibles, all at very reasonable prices. Here are a few of my favorite finds from opening night:
These pieces of Shanghai Serveware are too darling not to scoop up for dinner parties, mix and match these for a beautiful table scape.
If you’ve ever been to my house, you know a few things: 1. olive oil and 2. succulents.
Aren’t these made-in-Spain sauce pans just beautiful? There now just $6.49 each!
These globes could be so cute styled on a shelf in your living space, or in a home office with that architects desk. (Swoon.)
World Market is located at Shopper’s World in Framingham, 363 Cochituate Road.
Wrentham Village Premium Outlets and StyleWeek Northeast have teamed up for a night of fall fashion and fun, this Thursday, October 8th from 6 – 8PM! Enjoy live fashion displays, lite bites and refreshments, as well as special deals and offers at retailers.
The first 50 attendees who provide the invitation at Guest Services will receive a free swag bag!
If you’re coming in from the Providence-area, Experience RI Tours will give you a lift! The shuttle is prepared to leave Providence at 5:30 and return by 8:30PM. For more info call 401-886-0733.
I hope to see you there!
