You never really know how much you love or have missed a place until you decide to pay a short visit and you almost feel like never returning to base. That was how I felt the two weekends ago on my short trip to Boston MA with the fam. It was so nice driving through Cambridge, Norwood (Where I lodged, at the Hampton Inn…clean, hospitable and beautiful hotel!) Downtown Boston, Somerville and Roslindale MA to name a few. Ohhh the wave of Nostalgia was second to none. I lived in Boston MA for 4+ years prior to moving to New York. So you will understand my feeling.
One of my outfits on the short three days trip was this casual chic look in a white button-down long sleeve shirt which I tied at the front and scrunched the sleeves for that casual chic feel, Skinny Jeans, Platform Sneaker and Structured Boater Hat to finish off the look. I played around with my bags as I was going to dinner with the family much later that day.
So for that daytime look while hanging out at the Norwood Golf Course which by the way is a sight to behold😍, I accessorized with my new favorite fashion piece; Oversized Handmade Straw Basket Bag. As you well know, Bamboo, Raffia, Straw style bags and hats etc have been making fashion waves for a long time now and will continue to grace the spring/summer fashion scene for some time.
I love love love my handmade elephant grass oversized straw bag😍😍 The straw bag goes with a host of looks and can be dressed up or down as the occasion or mood dictates, contrary to the believe that it is meant for the beach. This look says it all. You can have it your way! What’s not to love peeps! Do help yourself to one this season, I assure, you will have absolutely no regrets.
For dinner date with the family later on that day I switched to my good oldie favorite metallic bag for that night out vibe as it is less overwhelming and more appropriate….feel me😉
It was fun taking the shots for this post with my family and particularly exciting having my three going on 4 year old display her poses lol! She is fast becoming a little Diva! Mini Me❤️. Photo Props goes to my Mom😘🙏 what will we ever do without the love of our mothers! You Rock Mom🙌🏻❗️
