Simple and Understated in Mystic

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 3:30 AM

Good Morning Loves! 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and Presidents Day.  I took a mini road trip to Mystic, CT this weekend to meet up with one of my besties, Lindsay. She lives in NJ and I do not get to see her nearly enough as I would like.  She was heading up to Mystic with her mom and 5 yo old son to go to the Aquarium. Although Mystic is two states away, it only takes and hour and a half to get their and we could not pass up the opportunity to see them.  After seeing the Julie Roberts movie Mystic Pizza countless times as a child, I felt like I already knew so much about the sleepy town by the sea, I couldn't have imagined I would fall in love with it like I did. I wish I took photos of the quaint downtown area, filled with boutiques and amazing restaurants.  The only thing I seemed to snap a shot of was, of course the real Mystic Pizza. We had an amazing dinner at a place called Bravo, Bravo on East Main, where I got a scrum-didli-umptious carbonara, which is my fave!  

The weather was super mild, perfect for walking around the out door Aquarium and down town.  I often find when I will be doing a lot of walking and site seeing I keep it simple. What is more simple than an all black look with sensible statement  booties?

Not the best photos, for sure, but I think that means we were having too much fun! 

xx, Elise
