Take a peek inside our visit to The Langham Hotel in Boston. We were blown away by the elegance of the exterior. What beautiful red awnings – Emily even matched in her new red coat. We walked through the beautiful lobby, and up to our room to find this adorable tic tac toe dessert platter, and a few lovely gifts including their very own “Langham Pink” OPI nail polish!

We were also fortunate enough to make it for Afternoon Tea. You don’t know tea time until you’ve been to The Langham. We were presented with our teas and a little hourglass to perfectly time our steeping. A few delicious mini sandwiches arrived, followed by delectable desserts. This hotel doesn’t mess around when it comes to dessert. Word has it they have a full chocolate bar on Saturdays. Be sure to also grab a cocktail in their stunning Bond Restaurant Bar.

It was so nice to be back in our hometown, but experience it in a new way. This hotel is in such a central location. We walked almost everywhere. Will definitely be back soon, and hope to make it to their home base hotel in London sooner rather than later. Thanks for having us, Langham!

Harps and Tulle

Skirt, Kiki Riki. Body suit, H&M. Boots, Steve Madden

Random fact about me, I play the harp. I’ve actually played for 22 years. I keep it back home in Boston now, so while I was home I decided to play a bit. We got one really random nice day, like I’m talking high 50’s in mid January. Okay, I guess I should rephrase… it was one random nice day in the North East. (I actually saw a man this weekend walking in shorts and a t-shirt in 30 degree weather.) Anyways, I decided to bring my harp outside and play. It always seems way more whimsical that way. There isn’t much more whimsical than harps and tulle.

I recently got this long tulle skirt from KiKiRiKi sold at Foravi. This may be my new favorite brand! I saw their booth of new pieces at the FAME trade show and let me tell you, drool worthy. I kept the look simple since it is already a bit costumey with just a bodysuit and some thigh high boots all in black. Although, I think by now you know that Abigail and I are into costumes more than normal gear.

We actually have themed nights with our bestie Bex (who has an incredible lingerie line) just so we can dress up. Our last one was based on the movie Bring It On. Yes, I wore my cheerleading uniform from high school. If we’re talking about more random facts, I was captain cheerleader in high school. You may not be able to tell now because I’m so emo………… Okay, I just wish I was emo. But, I have a black harp. Does that help my case? 

My friend actually did some photoshop fun on one of the photos, which I posted on Instagram. You should check it out @WanderLustGirls!

What an amazing time in Boston! We’ll give a full recap of the absolutely stunning Langham hotel later this week. However, I wanted to post my go to look this past weekend because it went so well with the awnings outside of the hotel. We were waiting for our ride, so I decided to snap some pics of all this red. Let’s be honest… such a bright color is quite out of character for me. I kind of love this major splash though. Don’t get any ideas, it’s just one jacket. It’s not going to be a regular thing. 

We picked up this red duster coat at Zara recently during their major sale! Cha-ching! We actually used it for a styling project we just wrapped and cannot wait to show you all! For now it’s still hush hush… but the red is a major hint for this brand πŸ˜‰ I paired it with lots of black, so I wouldn’t go into shock. I’ve also been living in these gray snakeskin boots I picked up on our recent trip to Ireland! They just make me feel so rock n’ roll.

I know we didn’t really get a chance to talk about New Years and resolutions and all that. Resolutions are a big deal to me, I love getting a great fresh start to a year. This year one of my most important ones was, be more rock n’ roll. So, here is the start. That also means we’ll be at way more concerts, wearing lots of cool thrift finds and well just being our normal wild selves. So, make sure to follow us on Instagram @WanderLustGirls and on snapchat at WanderLust-Girl.
