A Little Donkey and A Little Thigh

Nikki Schuster

For those of you who don’t know, the gold dome of the Massachusetts State House marks the center of Boston. I am lucky enough to live just behind it, which means, I am within a 45 minute walk from all of Boston’s best spots! I can get to Southie, Seaport, Fort Point, Cambridge, North End, Back Bay and South End all in under 45 minutes. 

For some, that is too far, but I always carry my Yosi Samra fold up flats with me so I can make the trek without ruining my shoes or hurting my feet. The flats are super comfortable AND they fit in almost any purse (assuming I don’t over-stuff it with makeup). Take a look below for some of my favorite Yosi's! 

For me, walking isn’t only good for your health, it is good for your brain. It allows you to think, without getting distracted by directions or the “masshole” in front of you. I love passing little shops and restaurants I’ve never heard of, and because I’m not driving, I can even jot down the name/address and add it to my list of places to explore.

That being said, with the wedding under a year away, by budget has been pretty tight! I want to continue trying new spots, so walking to and from the restaurants not only saves me money, it opens up my world of options. 

Recently I tried Little Donkey. The food was amazing!! Fair warning: it is Tapas, so if you are going with a big group, be prepared to spend a lot and run the risk of leaving hungry, especially if there are hungry guys in your group. However, as a small girl, I was over-satiated. In fact, it was hard to stop - each item was better than the next! I had to remind myself that I didn’t need to order every item on the menu and I could always come back. Take a look below for some of my favorite items on the menu!

MUST HAVES:

  • Parker House Rolls: Yellow chives and Chinese Sausage
  • Black Pepper Popovers: Wagyu steak tartare
  • Pickle Brine Fried Chicken Sandwich: Green papaya slaw, jalapeno, avocado ranch (Beware: this is packed with flavor. If you order this, you may not have a lot of room for all the other options)
  • And of course, you have to get the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough because it’s the only place you can eat cookie dough in public instead of sneaking spoonful’s from the couch.

PS: if you are a guy, check out the artwork in the bathroom. And don’t be a fun-hog, snap a pic and let the ladies of the evening enjoy a little potty humor

THE OUTFIT

DRESS: Unfortunately, I got it years ago. It is a Theyskens Theory dress from Shopbop, however, click HERE and HERE for similar!

SHOES: Stuart Weitzman also click HERE for the same boot but with a small heel

BAG: The bag is consistently on repeat and as I've mentioned in the past, it is from Imports of Marrakesh, an adorable store in Chelsea Market. However, click HERE for one the most adorable yarn bags I've ever seen and HERE for a stunning multicolored fur clutch!! Clearly I have a statement clutch obsession...

Fall into Autumn for Less

Nikki Schuster

A few weeks back, I talked about transitioning summer outfits into cooler weather in "Transitioning into Fall with Ku De Taand "Romping Around". As we get closer to Fall, “cooler weather” can mean 40s at night, which means warmer transitional outfits! This time, I have paired a Lovers + Friends Maxi Dress with a cashmere sweater. Mine is a vintage Giorgio Armani passed down from my mom, but you can find similar HERE, HERE and HERE. Maxis are great transitional pieces because they provide full leg coverage and when you add a great bomber jacket or warmer sweater, you are immediately ready for the cooler temps! Check out below for a bunch of cropped bomber jackets I am into right now:

Another way to transition is with a denim jacket. I love my old theory jacket from 10 years ago and I still wear it all Spring and Fall. But once the weather turns ice-y, that denim is replaced with thicker, warmer and hopefully water proof or resistant jackets. So check out some cute options below and go ahead and layer ;)

Even with Fall clothes filling the racks, I remain in denial that colder weather is coming. I can't stop buying rompers and wrap dresses! The good news is that with the right layers you can turn your favorite summer outfit into a cozy Fall getup in seconds! 

I give you permission to live on the wild side a little longer. Now you can enjoy those dresses and bright colors into the Fall! Today, I styled a bright, open-backed sweater with jean shorts and heals, but as the weather gets cooler, you can swap those jean shorts for jeans or leather pants.  So go ahead, live a little, and leave the black wardrobe in your closet for a few more months! 

Check out the outfit details below and stay tuned for more transitional outfit options!
