The Charles that I knew in college was always a source of calm alongside the busy streets that wind their way through Boston. A half-hour into the suburbs, where my husband grew up, its otherwise peaceful current tumbles over a dam and throws off a shower of golden-green sparks.
The light was perfect to show off my own sparks.
In green, gold, and gray, I might have blended into my surroundings if not for these pieces' unique lines and textures (plus some orangy-red lipstick - Nars Heat Wave to be exact).
Feeling zen with my watery counterpart.
These boots work with almost everything, even stone walls by the riverside.
I loved visiting the Charles' combination of color, calm, and a bit of glimmer–just like I remembered.
