Confession: I didn’t realize this was a skort until I tried it on in the store. I was purchasing this with a crop top and when I tried it on, I was sold. It is so flattering and super comfortable as well!  It’s perfect for a night out with a flowy top like I wore here, but you could also pair it with a solid tight tank or crop top. Recently I sported the outfit for a night in NYC and got a ton of compliments!

Speaking of going out, I wanted to include some of my favorite places to grab a cocktail  in Boston. Trying new places and changing it up is my favorite – I don’t have a “go-to” spot, but here are some places I frequent around town!

  • Society on High – Financial District. Lots of young professionals looking for a cold one after work.
  • Lincoln – South Boston. Great neighborhood bar for Southie locals. Super casual (I’ve definitely gone there in leggings and a flannel before). I suggest sharing the butternut squash pizza with a friend (or get one for yourself, it’s that good).
  • Loco – South Boston. Best margs around. This cool, rustic looking bar is across the street from Lincoln. Try some tacos and definitely get “The Britney”!
  • Legals Harborside – Seaport. This is my favorite spot in the summer. The roof deck has a great view and is awesome when its nice out. Word to the wise: this place fills up fast so get there early. Try the sushi and sangria, its the best combo!
  • Committee – Seaport. I’ve only been here once late-night but it had a great crowd and a casual, cool atmosphere.
  • Coppersmith – South Boston. Another local bar thats closer to the Broadway T stop if you’re not a Southie rez. It’s got a patio and roof deck for warmer days, but there’s plenty of room inside now that it’s chilly out.
  • Lucky’s – Fort Point.  Great music, sometimes they have a band. Totally a dark basement feel but if you like to dance up a storm this is your PLACE.

What are some of your favorite drink spots in the city? Let me know in the comments!

    Weesh

    This is so stinking cute… love, love the floral. And skorts totally bring me back to being able to sit “criss-cross applesauce” (we can’t say Indian style anymore) in a skirt in elementary school. Clothes should be nostalgic in a cute way, no? Such an adorable touch with the Southie neighborhood background! Into your bar list but you forgot BHP. You’re forgiven.
