The hubby & I are heading to Boston, Massachusetts at the end of this month for his annual work conference.  Although he does have some meetings to attend, we will also be doing lots of fun stuff while we are there!  There are always fancy dinners & events to attend in the evenings, and I’m always in need a few “dressy” outfits when we attend these conferences. Needless to say, I’ve been doing a little shopping lately, looking for a few new items to take with me!

What? You wouldn’t expect me to wear the same things I wore last year, would ya?! :)

We have a Cato store in our neighboring town, which I rarely shop at. However, it sits next to our Kirkland’s store which I’m in quite frequently! The last time I decided to pop into Kirkland’s, I noticed a few cute items inside Cato’s storefront & decided to stop in. That’s when I found this black & white jumpsuit! Just a sidenote: I never really thought too much about looking for a jumpsuit until my blog friend, Caroline, posted a picture on Instagram of a jumpsuit she had purchased at Anthropologie. It looked absolutely adorable on her (just like everything else she puts on) & suddenly I felt like I needed a jumpsuit! So, I walked into Cato, saw this jumpsuit & saw that it was on clearance for $17.99. I was SOLD!  

Because of the beaded detail around the neck, I decided that I didn’t need a necklace. So, I just added a pair of black heels that I already had on hand & a little bit of arm candy (also from Cato) and called it a day! For under $25, I have one of my “dressy” events covered for this year’s trip!! And just a little added bonus, this thing is super comfortable!! Woot woot!!

Fingers crossed that I can find a few more bargains like this one before we leave!! I’m so excited for our trip! I’ve never been to Boston before, but it has always been a place I’d like to visit!

Have you ever been to Boston?!

  1. You are gorgeous lady! I absolutely LOVE this look on you! P.S. You are so tan!

  2. You look FANTASTIC! I gasped when you said it was 17.99. You look elegant, classy and sophisticated…a lot of bang for your buck!

    Have a great time in Boston….can’t wait to see pictures. It’s on my list of places to visit. And good luck finding some more outfits.

  5. Living in Connecticut, Boston is a short day-trip, with lots to do! If the weather breaks (currently heat/humidity is oppressive!), you’ve got to walk the Freedom Trail, which includes Old North Church (Paul Revere). Fanueil Hall Marketplace is loaded with shops and restaurants! I’ve done the “Codzilla” speed boat tour of the harbor, but pack a towel and change of clothes because you will get wet:)! Great fun, however. Cambridge is a great little area as well. The “T” (mass transit) is color-coded and easy to follow. Have a great time!

    • Thanks for all the suggestions Tina!! Definitely will check into some of those! Looking forward to it!

  6. I don’t think there’s anything you don’t look great in, and this jumpsuit is no different. You’re gorgeous!

  7. Love it! Your hair is always so adorable too!

  8. One of my favorite things that I did in Boston was to go on the “ghosts and graveyards” tour at about 9:00 at night….very fun! It takes you thru the city and gives some history of mysteries surrounding some famous crimes of the past…with a few surprises along the way! We also took a ferry to Salem and visited the Witch Museum and the graveyard there…very interesting! Ok, pretty creepy stuff- but we also walked the Freedom trail, visited Harvard, went to Fenway to a Red Sox game, and lots of other fun things! I loved Boston and hope to go back!

    • Thanks for all the suggestions Mary!! Some of that definitely sounds creepy!! We do have tickets to a Red Sox game! Looking forward to that! :)

  9. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous my friend!!! You look amazing!!! I’m always telling myself to wear color, but you are making black and white look like a million bucks friend! LOVE IT!

  10. Never been to Boston, so no advice there. But, I LOVE the jumpsuit! I haven’t been in Cato’s in years, but I have found some nice things when I have been in there. I just always seem to forget about it… love the beads on the straps, too!

    • Thank you Carrie! Yes, I always forget about it too! Definitely gonna make a point to go in there more often now!

  11. You have a stunning haircut!
