Spring Snow Day

The Third Piece Fenway Hat


The Third Piece Beacon Mitts

The Third Piece Boston

The Third Piece Hat and Gloves

I saw a tweet this morning that said, "Has it been winter for like 7 years at this point?".  UM, YES. It certainly feels that way. Since we're preparing for even more snow, I thought I'd share (a) cute cold weather gear, since we still need it (sigh) and (b) three fun indoor things to do in Boston this week!

This hat and pair of mitts are from Boston-based The Third Piece, which sources all of its handmade items from knitters right here in the Boston area. You can order items directly, or, if you are craftier than I am, you can order Knit Kits and make these items yourself! 

If you're like me, and don't know how to knit, you can swing by The Third Piece in the South End for knitting lessons, or, if you're already a knitter but just need a little help, you can pop in for expert help at their Knit Bar (imagine cozy-ing up there with a coffee and fellow knitters)! If you don't even want to leave the house, check out some of their online knitting tutorials. I'm taking some knitting lessons next week - tune into my Insta stories to check it out.

For more entertainment, check out the Tony-award winning play The Humans, playing through March 25th at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre. The witty, fast-paced dialogue and brilliant multi-level set immediately draws you into the performance (as does the absolutely stunning acting). I confess I didn't know much about the play before attending, but even those with some knowledge of the play will be surprised by the powerful ending. Tickets start at only $25 - you really should not miss this exceptional performance! 

For even more drama, head over to the Opera House to see Boston Ballet's breathtaking version of Romeo and Juliet. You guys, I can't state strongly enough what a moving performance this is. The choreography by John Cranko includes so many thoughtful little notes and details, and Juliet is danced both playfully, and, of course, mournfully. If this production doesn't move you, then, well, check your pulse, because you're dead inside. Learn more about the production, and get tickets here through April 8th. 

See you outside shoveling, Boston!

Thank you, readers, for bearing with me while I took a blog break for the first months of 2018. I am thankful to all of you for sticking with me. I've got some fun content coming up this spring (awesome travel ideas, exciting entertainment, and yes, spring outfit ideas - even though there is currently snow on the ground...)! In the meantime, let's get back to basics with an outfit post.

March has certainly come in like a lion, but I am SO DONE with my giant, black, puffy coat! Fortunately, while it has been snowing, we're not stuck with temperatures in the single digits, so I can wear my almost-as-warm-but-really-beautiful coat. I know it's hard to think about coats in March, BUT, now's the time to assess your current coats, get them cleaned and mended if necessary, donate any that you don't wear, and keep an eye out for good sales (I got his one on ultra sale last year). While it's not fun to think about them now, your future self with thank you, come November. 

Have a great weekend!
