Pink, White, and Blue: A Nautical Memorial Day

If any of you follow me on Instagram you will know that I am not by the ocean this Memorial Day weekend. I am, in fact, in the dry desert of Las Vegas for work. Back in Boston it's supposed to be in 80's (which is the perfect temp for boating!) and I hope my New England buddies (including the hubby) take full advantage of the warm sunshine - I am so jealous! 

Will (of Will Mann Photography) and I shot these down in the Seaport of Boston. We often cruise through here on the boat all summer, but it's also beautiful by land. The Seaport has quickly become one of my favorite parts of Boston and as it continues to build it just keeps getting better. More restaurants, more bars, more commerce... it used to be untapped real estate and now it's a goldmine. The City is doing a nice job creating buildings that fit into the overall landscape of the city and the are maintaining the integrity of buildings that are historical and important. 

If you are interested in reading more about the Rise of the Seaport - check out these articles (some of which date back to 2012) - we all cursed the Big Dig and it will forever be something our city has to overcome, but without it the Seaport wouldn't be where it is now!

Popularity of Land - bidding wars over parking garages and any vacant spaces in Fort Point Channel 

The Next Big Thing - The Seaport Square will have restaurants, shops, and housing! 

Outfit details - Super classic and nautical inspired w/ navy and white stripes, a simple denim jacket and pops of pink. I do love navy and pink together....  Zara Turtleneck Dress (sold out, but a ton of similar styles here) /  SJP Pink Shoes (here) /  Rebecca Minkoff Bag (here)  /  J.Crew Denim Jacket (here) 30% off right now! /  Rayban Aviators (here)

Memorial Day is an opportunity to live the way all those who died wanted us to. Freely and happily. So do that!

This weekend is such a nice way to commence the summer even though technically we have a little more time on the calendar until the solstice actually hits. For me, it always conjures memories of warm sunshine, smiles, parades, softball uniforms, bands playing patriot music, grilling hot dogs and hamburgers and most importantly spending time with family/friends. I hope that wherever you are in the world you are doing something that makes your soul feel good. 


Enjoy the long weekend!!!
