Last week I decided to walk down Newbury Street in Boston. I thought it would be fun to see the shops and look in some galleries. It turns out I went a little too early for the galleries (most opened at 11 or 12) but I did get to do some shopping! I did see a decent amount of artwork in the windows of the galleries so that was fun too.
There are a wide variety of shops on Newbury Street, from clothes to health and beauty products to cupcakes. Now that I think about it, they do have a sort of feminine tie… I had a lot of fun admiring all the pretty dishes and fabrics in Anthropologie and shopping for clothes at H&M. I didn’t end up getting anything, but there was a lot of eye candy!
Perhaps the best part of my walk down Newbury Street though was taking my time and admiring all the architecture. There were some nice additions to my collection of Boston Buildings. Two of my favorite things that I saw along my walk were flowers on the porches and the pretty teal color of aged copper. There were flowers on almost every porch and there was a lot of aged copper. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful warm day. The combination of everything made for a very pleasant walk!
This store had a huge glass window front full of old sewing machines. Because of the reflections it was hard to see in a picture of the whole building, thus the close up, but it was really cool to see!
I thought the front of this cupcake shop was really cute. I actually had cupcakes from Georetown Cupcakes which was down the street a little way, but I’ll have photos of those another day.
Can I just say that I love rooftop gardens? I don’t know that I would necessarily like living on the top floor of a building but I would really like to have a rooftop garden!
