OOTD: College Year 2 {Part 6}

img_8728 Hello again!

It's been a rough and busy week for sure. I went to Cape Cod this past weekend. It was pretty wild. Fortunately for us, the weather was spectacular! (Except for Sunday when Hurricane Matthew hit). On Sunday we decided to go to a museum and then out to eat. I think it was like a "Category 1 hurricane" by the time it got to Mass or something, but it was nevertheless pretty forceful. Trying to get lunch was difficult. I distinctly remember trudging through a parking lot, all of us, ill-equipped, barely able to walk because the winds were so strong and getting completely pounded with rain. It was out of a movie!

Overall the weekend was awesome. A lot of good bonding and a lot of very New England things. Super cozy.

Yesterday, I met Madison downtown and we wandered around Boston, specifically Beacon Hill, one of the most charming areas. You're definitely correct in thinking that I must get no work done, considering I do this stuff all the time, haha. But anyways, we set out on a mission to find the famous Acorn Street! Haven't heard of it? According to Instagram, this is the most photographed street in America (although, I don't know how much I believe that considering it's practically hidden). It's this cute, steep, cobblestone-studded street with red bricks, vines, lanterns, and a Revolutionary-type American Flag hanging in the middle. It's positively adorable! All of the doors to the homes are each a different color with shuddered windows, intricate door knockers and pretty ornaments. When we got there, there were at least 3 couples taking engagement photos. Ugh. So adorable, but still. So thus I decided to take blog photos here.

Here was my outfit from yesterday. I knew I wanted to wear the skirt so I planned around that. I figured, since it's not scorching hot, I should do long sleeved. I put this on but could not perfect the tuck. I think, in the end, it turned out pretty decent. Then I put on the booties because it seemed more fall. That was about it, haha. I love this top so much and it means a lot to me. Not only does it go with just about everything, but I actually bought it at a store called Carlings in Norway. Every time I look at it, I think and dream of my time in Norway all over again. But anyway, on to the outfit. Also, keep scrolling to get a closer look at the jewelry, most of which I've gotten in Cape Cod and also appeared on my Instagram.

*Note: The Silver Seahorse is a local jeweler located in Hyannis that offers many varieties of New England-style jewelry, such as the ones I have shown. They're either Sterling Silver or 14k Solid Gold. On top of this, their prices are super reasonable. This is not an ad nor a sponsored post, I am just very fond of them and that's why I have so many of their pieces. You will most likely see them in many of my future posts :)*
