This past weekend, my parents visited Matt and me in Boston. We packed our schedules with all of our favorite activities, and some special happenings for my dad, since it was his birthday! For a fun celebration, we decided to head to the North End for the perfect summer evening. There’s an adorable park called the Canal Fountains between the busy Italy eateries and the big market area. This pathway is there as well, and it is one that I always love wandering through. Isn’t it beautiful?

Este fin pasado, nos visitaron mis papas. Hicimos un montón durante sus cuatro días en Boston, y Matt y yo planeamos algo muy especial para sábado, ya que era el cumpleaños de mi papá. Para pasar la noche muy bien, fuimos al North End. Hay un parque de fuentes y un jardín público entre los restaurantes italianos y el mercado de comida allá. Este paseo también está ubicado allá y es uno que adoro por su belleza.

We decided to grab food at a local restaurant in Little Italy. We never plan which restaurant we will eat at ahead of time because there are literally hundreds and they’re all delicious. We ended-up at Bella Vista, whose food did not disappoint. We had no room for cannoli’s or gelato afterwards, which would have been our next stop. Instead, we took my parents to the Improv Asylum on Hanover Street. If you’re ever in town and want a fun start to your night, this is your spot! The IA is not only hilarious, but it is affordable for every budget. The comedians are so impressive, too!

Decidimos a comer en un restaurante en la calle Hanover. Nunca planeamos adónde nos vamos a comer cuando pasamos la noche en el North End, simplemente porque hay cientos de lugares italianos y nos gustan todos jaja. Por fin comimos en Bella Vista que fue delicioso! No pudimos comer más (no aún un postre) y entonces fuimos al Improv Asylum. Si vienen a Boston, sería muy divertido pasar parte de su noche allá- los cómicos son geniales y el show es muy gracioso.

We had spent most of our day Saturday outside, canoeing on the Charles, and I didn’t have enough time to wash my hair before dinner. So you know I did my usual trick: braids! I went for an easy headband/crown braid, which hides greasy hair and keeps my mane out of my face. I kind of wish I could wear my hair like this every day because I think it is really pretty!

Pasamos la mayoría del día afuera en un piragüismo, pero no pude lavar mi pelo antes de cenar. Entonces, hice lo que siempre hago para cubrir mi pelo sucio: trenzas! Hice una trenza de corona porque es la más fácil para mi, y muy bonita. Me siento tan cómoda con trenzas que, les juro, llevaría mi pelo así cada día si pudiera! 

La Mariposa Boston Blog, Summer Outfit, Larimar Aqua Statement Ring

Larimar gifted me this beautiful ring a few months ago and, because it has been so hot out, I have sadly barely worn any jewelry. I try to stay away from it in the humidity, but I knew it would be too gorgeous with this outfit to pass up. Isn’t the aqua blue hue stunning? I also really love the shape of it. Needless to say, it was worth wearing!

Larimar me regaló este anillo hace unos meses y desafortunadamente no lo he llevado mucho. Es porque hace demasiado calor y no me gusta llevar joyas en tiempo húmedo. Pero no pude pasar a llevarlo con este outfit. El color azul es hermoso y el corte de la piedra es genial.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I’m still recovering and am so tired from mine, but anytime spent with my parents is well worth the extra eye bags afterwards! :)
