This past weekend one of my best blogger girlfriends, Danielle and I headed up to Salem for a little day trip. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we had an awesome day of brunching, a bit of shopping and then taking in a haunted Salem show to really round up the day.
When I say the weather was gorgeous, that doesn’t mean fall like.. it was SO warm out, more like summer than fall! But we were determined to wear cute fall outfits in the most quintessential of fall locations, Salem (I mean witches #duh!). I had just picked up this fall floral top at Nordstrom and couldn’t resist wearing it. There’s just something about a darker floral print for fall- I love it!
If you live in the Boston area and are planning to visit Salem during the next month or so to celebrate the season, here are a few things I’d recommend adding to your agenda:
- Get brunch at Ledger– oh my gosh, we had the most amazing brunch here! It was an old bank converted into a restaurant and the whole theme is just perfect. Danielle and I shared the doughnut of the day (obviously) and then for brunch I had the Banana Bread Foie-ster which was like a french toast with banana bread. To die for! Danielle had the chicken and waffles which I had to sneak a bite of- it was also delish!
- Shop on Front Street– Two of my fave stores we visited, Curtsy and Roost & Company, were both located on Front Street. Curtsy has some seriously adorable, trendy clothes and jewelry as well as fun gift items. Danielle recommended Roost & Company as she had been there before and I spent a small fortune in cards there (am I the only one who loves sending snail mail?). They have one of the best card and paper good selections including Rifle Paper and Curly Girl cards.
- Scare yourself at the Salem Haunted Magic Show– If you are going to Salem in the fall, chances are you kind of like Halloween and won’t mind getting scared a little bit. I was invited to see this show as a “media” member which was the initial reason for our little trip to Salem. If you saw my insta-story on Sunday, you know we were kind of freaking out before we went in- they had these spiders and clowns in the lobby that jumped out at you and we were sure we would be goners. The show was really enjoyable and just the right amount of scary for me (which is not too scary 😉 ). If you are headed up to Salem though, seeing this show would be a great way to get into the Halloween mood.
Salem was super cute and I was so glad I got to explore it more with a good girlfriend! At around 40 minutes from Boston, it is definitely worth a fall day trip! PS- bonus points for those of you that recognize the Town Hall 😉 It’s from my fave Halloween movie (aka a not scary one!)
Do you have any fall day trips planned? Where to?
