Pink Blush Transition Tunic


It's safe to say that Boston is still in it's transition phase from Spring to Summer. Some days are in the 80's, and some are still in the 50's and raining. This can be both frustrating and also a fun time style-wise! 

When Pink Blush sent me this adorably-detailed white tunic and impossibly soft leggings, I was super excited because they're both perfect for transitional season outfits. The tunic's long hem and 2/3 sleeves provide more warmth than a summer tee or tank, but it's still flowy enough for those warmer days too. I love the lace detailing on the bottom for a more feminine look.


These fun purple fleece tights are seriously ridonculously soft and cozy. They're just warm enough to get you through a 50 degree day, but still way more stylish than sweatpants. I paired this outfit with my beloved Bear Paw winter boots to keep with the comfy feel.




Tunic + Tights: Pink Blush | Boots: Bear Paw  
Layered Necklace and Bracelet: Rocksbox | Silver Ring: Wild Feather

I was honestly really impressed by Pink Blush. You can easily tell how much they prioritize high quality in their clothing, which I really appreciate. The tights were thick fleece and made sturdy yet still cozy, and the lace detailing on the tunic was so intricate and fun. Once summer finally rolls around, I know where I'm going!

Sunny Sowa Sundays

Every summer, Boston's South End puts on a great open market known as Sowa Sundays (sound familiar? You may remember last year's post on Sowa Sunday). It's a great place where the community gathers to eat great food and shop local vendors, like Union Square Donuts! 

We tried these infamous donuts for the first time here, opting for the Vanilla Bean, but that Maple Bacon is still calling to me. The sweet treat was amazing nonetheless - perfectly pillowy and super fresh. Now I want to try them all!

Food trucks are a huge part of Sowa Sundays! It's so hard to choose just one or two to nosh on, but we went with Papi's Stuffed Sopapillas. We didn't even know what sopapillas were at the time, but the menu options looked delicious and the line wasn't too bad. 

It turns out sopapillas have the outer shell of a flaky pastry, and can be filled with basically anything. We ordered the Bulgogi Ribeye with kimchi slaw and sweet chili cream cheese (left) and the avocado BLT with special sauce (right). The bulgogi (Korean marinated beef) was so scrumptious and flavorful. I love how they thought to combine Korean ingredients into this traditionally Latin dish.

Of course I had to get dessert after that savory meal (plus I wanted to try more food trucks obvi). So I got this chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream (my fave) from the Frozen Hoagie truck.

Finally, we toured around the vendor tents to walk off that yummy food! It was a great sunny day, and we can't wait to go back!

Making Fetch Happen

On Wednesdays we wear pink! I'm excited about sharing this post with you all for a lot of reasons. Now that the spring weather has made its way to Boston I'm finally able to showcase my newest obsession: Fetch Clothing. Melding California style with Texan flair, literally all of the items at Fetch are super cute and fun. They have a brick and mortar shop in El Paso, and an online boutique where you can buy from their Instagram account which is so cool and convenient. You just comment the word "sold" with your size and email, & an invoice will automatically be sent to you with free shipping & full money back refunds within 30 days.

Fetch sent me this adorable floral romper that is officially on repeat for the season. It's super flowy and comfortable, and one of those items that you get tons of compliments on.

For those of you wondering, that pink celestial blob in the background is an amazing aerial piece of art by Janet Echelman on the Greenway. It's actually made of a ton of string and it moves with the wind,  just like my Fetch romper! How cool is that?

Shout out to Lianna from Salem Style for the cutest drink cozy ever (which I'm holding in the above pic)! She has a crochet shop on Etsy that you should definitely check out!
