St. Patrick's Day is always a festive time in Boston. These are just a few quick snapshots of some of the ways people wore green on the streets of Southie in celebration of St. Patty. I didn't get any shots of my outfit this year, but it was basically a huge coat (it was freezing!!) and the same green Chuck's I rocked last year.
Rumor has it that Bostonians have no style, that the fashion here is non-existent, or is dominated by Ugg and sweat pant clad college students. I beg to differ. Let's let the pictures speak for themselves though. From time to time, I'll put up a street style picture or two to demonstrate Boston's abundant flyness. For the first edition of "BeanStreets," I decided to share a picture I snapped back in the fall, featuring a young brotha in Franklin Park whose casual cool caught my eye. The combo of the camo backpack with the plaid shirt and fedora is fly without trying. Now that the snow is starting to melt, I'm looking forward to seeing more of this kind of effortless style.
