After spending Christmas with our families, we decided to travel locally for the remainder of our holiday break. Wethersfield, Connecticut happened to be on our way home, so we rolled through in search of charming, historic buildings!
Since this was our first time in Wethersfield, finding the historic section (Old Wethersfield) was hard. We zigzagged through residential neighborhoods feeling pretty clueless until we luckily stumbled onto Main Street.
In the heart of Old Wethersfield was the cutest grocery store called the Heirloom Market. By the time we got there, it was closed, so we’ll have to update you on its interior during our next visit!
Currently swooning over all that bokeh light in the background!
That time when your face looks weird and unflattering, so you make the “artistic” choice to just crop yourself out… Welp I mean, who doesn’t love those lights in the background anyways?!
Alright, it’s decided. Our future house will have light turquoise trim and twinkling fairy lights dangling from the window during Christmas time because LOOK HOW CUTE!
This dress is currently my favorite Christmas purchase! It was on sale at Brooks Brothers in the girls section for only $32.50, which is how I can afford BB. Since the top half is a waffle knit thermal, it’s definitely the warmest and comfiest dress shirt that I own!
For reference, I am 5 ft short and 95 lbs, and I ordered an XL which fit perfectly. Find the dress here.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find anything similar in the women’s section, but Brooks Brothers still has a 50% off sale on their other clothes, so maybe something else will inspire you?
The Heirloom Market was closed, so I assumed I couldn’t walk into this building either, but we researched it afterwards, and apparently the Comstock, Ferre & Co is the oldest continuously operating seed company in the country with more than 200 years of experience! We’re definitely bringing my parents and their green thumbs with us next time!
Next door was a cute ice cream shop! Since it was freezing out, we took a hard pass.
Surprisingly, we weren’t even the only ones there to photograph ourselves in front of the holiday decorations! There was a family probably taking photos for next year’s Christmas cards. Speaking of, see our very first Christmas Cards here!
This town is definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area or road-tripping through New England. Given our limited time and the weather, we only photographed a small portion of Old Wethersfield. There’s much more to see in person! We can’t wait to come back during the summer and walk around the town green.
