Girls Gone Derby


One of the only good things about your closest friends living in separate cities is the chance to go visit them. So that’s what we did. 2 of us from Portsmouth, one from Goffstown, NH and one from NYC all ventured to Boston for a girls weekend.

Let me just say that 24 doesn’t feel quite like 21 #hangover.


It’s been a while since I’ve been to Boston so I know I’m late to the game.. but we went to Loco Tacqueria & Oyster Bar in Southie for a pre-Derby brunch. I’m now obsessed with this place.


I got the BEST spicy margarita to date. It was called The Little Devil and it was amazing. I mean.. it had a Tajin rim <333

I will 100% be going back to Loco. The sign above was outside the restaurant (way too accurate) and their instagram is full of other clever sayings that they put on their sign.


After some serious brunching it was time to get ready for the Kentucky Derby Party.


I ended up wearing my go-to Susana Monaco dress. Anyone else obsessed with the material of these dresses? You can’t really tell in the picture but it’s actually navy blue and has side pockets.

We went to Tia’s to watch the Derby and thankfully the weather ended up cooperating. I had never been there before either- it was sort of an outdoor/indoor bar and was a great time.

It was a Boston weekend well spent and I can’t wait for more to come this summer!
