Game Day!!

New England Patriots Game Day Wear
It should come as no surprise to you that I am a Patriots fan (my blog name didn’t give it away?).  Being from Boston, we take extreme pride in all our sports team and continue to voice to everyone, how much our teams are better than your teams (obnoxious, I know!!).  I make sure to rep my teams on game day and love how fashion forward sports gear has become.  I will say I am NOT a fan of the “pink” style (example here).  You will never catch me in a pink anything when it comes to reppin my team.  Can’t wait to rock one of these options for tonight’s game.  Go PATS!!!!

Cape Cod–>RIC


My family and I have been vacationing “down the Cape” (what us Bostonians say) ever since I was little, and my year doesn’t feel complete until I arrive.  Now, I’m at the airport headed back to Virginia, depressed that vacation is over.  But who says I can’t bring the beach with me?


I look forward telling you all about the Cape and sharing my favorite spots.  More to come!

Beach Essentials

Happy Wednesday ya’ll!  I don’t know about you, but it has been freaaaaakin hot in central VA.  As in 95 plus humidity everyday.  The bf and I just booked our first beach trip for the 4th of July weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited.  Growing up in Boston, I had the ocean within an arms reach at all times.  However, where we are now, it’s a good 2+ hours to get to the ocean.  Major dislike.  Below are some items I cannot live without when I go to the beach/pool.  Beach Essentials
I need a hat to shield my fair, Irish skin.  The Beach Bum brand has the BEST SPF items, and I much prefer the lotion to the spray, as I feel it lasts longer.  Sunglasses are a major necessity to shield my eyes and prevent crows feet (!!!).  These Tory Burch flip flops have lasted me for years, and you can usually get them for cheap at the outlet.  Lastly, the Kindle has kept me entertained for hours while laying out.  I attempted using my iPad and it was useless in the sun.  I found a cheap kindle on ebay for $50, well worth it!  What’s in your beach bag?

Shipping up to Boston


Hope everyone had a dandy weekend!  I flew home to Boston to  spend some time with my crazy family.  We literally are nuts when we are together, the good kind, if that’s possible.  I am so fortunate and blessed to have a wacky, funny,  loving, inappropriate at times…family.  Below are some snaps from the weekend.  Check ya’ll later!


Cheese&wine, nothing quite pairs like it…maybe chocolate.


OOTD for Sunday mass.


My baby enjoying the sunshine.


Got to spend some time with my homegirl.


Loving my new Nordstroms sunglasses, only $12.  Shop them here.



Happy Friday everyone, we made it!
Today I am flying back to Boston to spend some time with the fam, and I couldn’t be more excited!  The flight is only a little over an hour, but whether its an hour or 14 hours, I like to dress comfy.
Airport Style
  • Toms are my go to travel shoe.  If you do not own a pair of Toms, please go buy them right now .  They are literally the most comfortable shoe in the entire world.   They run large so keep that in mind.
  • Boyfriend jeans.  What does everyone think of boyfriend jeans?  My boyfriend likes to call them the “anti-boyfriend” jeans because they are loose fitting and don’t show off any curves/booty.   I personally love them because you can dress them up or dress them down and they still look fab.
  • I absolutely love this Tory Burch bag.  Not only is it stylish, but it is functional.  It has a zipper, people!  I can’t even begin to tell you how disappointed I get when a travel bag doesn’t zip.  You’re just asking for all your personal belongs to be dumped out and exposed for all the world to see!
I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday and be sure to follow me on twitter (@bostoniancharm) to keep up with my Boston shenanigans this weekend!

Tuesday feels like a Monday


Back to the grind we go.  Hope everyone had a spectacular Memorial Day weekend, can’t believe it’s already over!  This summer is going to fly by.  My weekend was filled with pool, food, cocktails, sun, reading, laughing, dancing, and eating a cheeseburger and french fries at 2AM on Sunday morning.  Check out my recap.  Hope your Tuesday is flying by and remember, only 3 more days till the weekend!


Had such great weather this weekend in Central VA, was able to lay out everyday thanks to my SPF75 (pale girl problems)


Something about skinny cans that make me feel like I’m drinking 0 calories beer, if only that were true…

PBR Cornhole

Nothing like a game of corn hole on a perfect Saturday night with a PBR tall boy (don’t judge, throw a lime in there and they are pretty damn good).

Wattamelon Roll

My boyfriend and I polished this bad boy off in just 3 days.  I squealed with excitement when I found this in a grocery store down here in VA.  I grew up on this every summer back in bean town.

Speaking of bean town, I’m heading home this weekend to celebrate the greatest man alive, aka my dad.  Cannot wait to drop my R’s and drink dunkies all day’errday…at least until Monday morning when I fly back to RVA.
