This morning I woke up, opened both windows in my bedroom, and breathed in two gusts of cool air.
It finally felt like fall.
I love EVERYTHING about this season. Dark colors. Three-quarter sleeves. Deep neutral shades of lipstick and eye shadow. (Pumpkin spice and dirty chai lattes…yummy).
Most of all, I love walking through Beacon Hill.
I frequent the neighborhood all year ’round, but there’s something special about its atmosphere in Fall. With a dirty chai from Starbucks on Charles Street in hand to keep me warm, I took a morning stroll through the cobbled streets (and made sure to stop by my favorite spots along the way).
The leaves are turning, locals in sweaters enjoy their own lattes and pastries outside cafes, doors to antique shops, boutiques, spas, and eateries open to browsers, and, if you walk the length of Charles Street, the suburban feel blends into the metropolis surrounding Boston Common.
This cute little flower shop on Cedar Street is THE place for calla lilies, healthy orchids, gorgeous succulents, and ADORABLE BABY PUMPKINS. Their floral arrangements are also SO chic!
You can check them out on their website here!
When I think of Beacon Hill, I think of lampposts and cobblestones. Acorn Street has both. Of course, it’s also one of the most sought out and photographed streets in the area. Fair warning from experience – don’t try walking up this hill in heels…
PS. Just WAIT until you see this neighborhood on Halloween (one of my personal, favorite days of the year). You have NEVER seen Halloween done like this! Picture Hocus Pocus x10…
