Hello Beauties, hope that you all had a fantastic weekend. I know that most of my blogger babes are still giddy from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I’ve enjoyed seeing your awesome posts and fabulous style picks. However, I chose to avoid the sale. Don’t get me wrong I love sales just as much as the next girl and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most anticipated sales of the year.
Instead of following the crowd to Nordstrom I decided to go in a different direction. I blame it on this beautiful weather, longer days and the relaxed laid back attitude of Summer, which has evoked this carefree, easy-going and unhurried mood of mine. So, I avoided the malls and headed to Boston’s historic “North End” Italian waterfront neighborhood.
My inspiration to do so was to visit Shake The Tree Boutique. I was looking for gift ideas on-line when I came across Shake The Tree’s website and I knew I had to check it out for myself. So, I talked Andy into spending the day with me in the North End ☺
When I walked into the store I was warmly greeted by owner Marian Klausner who invited me to take a look around her beautifully curated store. This beautiful boutique had everything that I adore and more – gorgeous summer dresses, handbags, handmade jewelry, contemporary home goods, colorful stationery, small brand apothecary, cocktail plus barware supplies, global cookbooks, and darling baby gifts.
I saw this easy breezy high low dress in the store window…and it was on SALE!!! For $60.00 it was love at first sight
And of course I had to pair the dress with a few of these gorgeous accessories What do you think about these earring and necklace?
I had an amazing shopping experience at Shake The Tree. I enjoyed browsing the shelves and loved the personal service. We were even treated to some delicious caramel candy It was the perfect, relaxed, laid back shopping experience (that matched my mood) I was looking for.
If you are a local or visitor this is a definite go to spot. Please check out Marian’s “Boston Favorites” page for upcoming events in the neighborhood like the recent Shop + Nibble Social and Cocktail Bitters + Shrubs Tasting.
Andy and I had a great day strolling through the neighborhood and the highlight was obviously visiting Shake.
I can’t wait for my next visit.
