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...

Wedding Weekend in Ocean City, Maryland (Part 1)

Nikki Schuster

Friday Night

Thinking about getting away for a few days but don't know where to go? Last weekend we went to Ocean City, Maryland for a friend's wedding and had a blast!  Having gone to University of Delaware, Keegan and a lot of our friends knew the area well. For me, it was an excuse to explore Ocean City for the first time!

THE OUTFIT:

DRESSForever 21

SHOESStuart Weitzman from years ago. See HERE for similar and HERE for denim wedges I love!

NECKLACEForever 21There are so many great statement necklaces at Forever 21 right now! It is the perfect place to get a trendy necklace, because the prices are so affordable! Check out HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE for similar! Each one is under $20!!

THE ACTIVITY:

PIT-STOP # 1: THE ROPEWALK

Friday night we went to the Ropewalk to start the evening off with some drinks and appetizers. I had the award-winning Ropewalk Hickory Smoked Victory Wings and a Skinny Grapefruit Crush. The Crush, a Maryland tradition, got me all excited for skinny summer drink ideas (stay tuned for a blog post about those)! The original recipe is fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, triple sec (or sprite), crushed ice and pinnacle grapefruit vodka. Of course, I had to make things difficult and swap out the triple sec for soda water and the vodka for tequila (its a much better hangover). I loved it!

I wish we could have gone during the day because The Ropewalk boasts an expansive sand-covered, out-door area with corn hole and other activities. They also have seating on a porch overlooking the water and live music! Check out their website for more information - The Ropewalk Ocean City

PIT-STOP #2: SEACRETS

After the Ropewalk, we took taxi's to Seacrets, a giant venue with several stages, bars and activities. Fair Warning: Seacrets can get pretty rowdy, so I don't recommend going unless you are dedicated to the debauchery that will ensue.

Seacrets could be your one-stop-shop for day and night drinking, or you can head over late night to finish off the evening. Either way, you have many options to choose from including the Beach Stage/Bar, the Pier Stage/Bar, the Tiki Stage/Bar or the Nite Club. Each location is just how you would imagine. The Beach is a sandy mess of live bands and shoe-less bars. The Pier is dedicated to all things water, with swim-up tables/chairs, lazy river floats and ankle deep dance parties. The Tiki Area is more of an indoor/outdoor spot with protection over your head for a rainy day or when you've endured too much sun. However, the ground is still sandy and the walls are all open. The Nite stage is a little bit of Miami Beach meets Atlantic City...enough said.  

All in all, I think Seacrets is a must-stop for the experience and the people watching - there is never a dull moment! See below for more links to the outfit I wore and a photo from the Tiki Stage at Seacrets!

Be on the lookout for my next blog post where I will talk about what we did the day of the wedding, the wedding itself and what I wore!
