Boston Public Library | Afternoon Tea in Summer Florals

Hello everyone! Wow, am I knee-deep in renovations and cleaning and unpacking (real slowly) with my new place. I can’t wait to show you what I’ve been going through soon. I’ve been vlogging a little bit each time something new has been done to the place. Renovations have only begun for a month and I’m already ready for the whole process to be over! Also as of yesterday, I am no longer a renter! I turned in my keys to my landlord–hallelujah!

Also I haven’t been focused on outfit shoots either since most of my weekends have been lent to doing something to my new place. But here is an outfit shoot from my road trip to Boston early last month. When I saw the beautiful Boston Public Library and even on Jean’s instagram over the afternoon tea, I had to visit the place. As you know, I’m in love with libraries especially ones that have a unique look much like Baltimore’s Peabody Library–an inspiration behind Beast’s library in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast movie.

The Boston Public Library was just as spectacular and I love the columns, the high ceilings and intricate artwork and of course, an afternoon tea break was a great start to the day. I can definitely see why Jean had her vintage-inspired wedding there, which was absolutely beautiful.

As for my outfit, I opted for something light and casual for summer–light top and floral skirt. It absolutely poured the night before, so adding a light jean jacket helped with cool temps and a summer hat is always necessary to protect your skin from the sun!
