Along with a change in scenery, Boston offers the tourist and resident alike Newbury Street. Nestled in between the Public Garden & Massachusetts Avenue, Newbury offers patrons and browsers alike the the opportunity to see the selections of quite a few brands from Burberry to Zara. With a lot to offer and stores on every floor and corner, it’s impossible to see them all. Having been there before, I was mainly interested in hitting some stores that I had breezed through last time.
Ball & Buck was the first stop and if you’ve never been, you need to go. When you think of Americana and fall, Ball & Buck is what comes to mind. With the old-school Americana feel and high quality items, it’s a can’t-miss destination. With everything from knick-knacks to quilted jackets, Ball & Buck has everything on hand for you to capture the American spirit- they even have a barbershop in the back of the store!

I couldn’t take my eyes off this jacket! ($448)
Ticket for Quilted Jacket
Neckwear & Pocket Squares
Next up was Zara. If you are unfamiliar with this store, I would highly recommend checking it out!Even if you own a closet full of this company’s product, I recommend checking out their F/W collection. If you’re the ones that lives for the details like leather collars, suede patches, and military inspired garb, this collection kills it! Even though I managed some in-store pictures and try-ons, the lighting was WAY OFF, and because I couldn’t buy everything that peaked my fancy, you’ll have to settle for the pictures below.
Even though I couldn’t purchase everything (especially that quilted jacket!), I couldn’t manage to walk away from one item. The item was this blazer. If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for it’s the little things. contrast collars, reversible neckwear, crazy socks, printed pockets and liners, etc. Just check it out!
