Leopard Print Coat & OTK Boots in Salem

Coat River Island from Asos, boots Aldo, jeans Zara, sweater Forever 21, White shirt Zara, cross-body bag Proenza Schouler

I was debating whether to share this post or not, just simply due to quality of the pictures, but after almost two months of deliberation, I thought they should be shared. This is from my trip to Boston. Our last day we spent in Salem. Yes Salem, the town know for the witch burnings or a witch town. 

Our first stop in town was the house of the 7 gables, also made known by Nathaniel Hawthorne in his book by the same name. This is one of the American classic books, and if you have not read it yet, you should. The first picture was taken in front of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s birth home, which was moved next to the house of the seven gables and made into a museum. It was definitely fun to walk both houses and see how people of those times lived. Very low ceilings (for heating purposes of course) is something that stuck with me, and I’m quite a short person.

After visiting the two houses, we went to visit the town. We took one of the historic tours. You have the option to take historic, witch or haunted tours, but we really wanted to learn about the history of Salem and witch burnings, so we opted for the history tour. There are no pictures of the town as it got really dark and cold really fast that day. Such a difference from previous sunny beautiful fall days. We were not necessarily best dressed for this cold so we froze our bums off that evening, but it was so worth it. You must visit Salem if you are coming to Boston and must take the historic tour. It’s scary what we as humans are capable of and even scarier to know that though what happened there 4 centuries ago is history, we can still see the same human nature today.

As for the outfit it was an improve of numerous layers to keep me warm. Again pictures are not the best but I needed to share them regardless. The coat is River Island from Asos. I have been looking for quite some time now for a leopard print coat of the right shade, material, shape and of course, price. This one made the cut. It's not necessarily good for cold weather, but it's a perfect fall coat. Who else considers leopard print a classic?

Ciao!
