The BostInno Fall Lookbook showcases seasonal style from the city’s best fashion bloggers, who have drawn outfit inspiration from either a quintessential fall activity in New England for your weekend agenda, or from an iconic Boston neighborhood for those weekdays back in town and at work. Check in every Tuesday and Saturday for a new look, and re-seize the season in a kickass wardrobe.
Back Bay is one of Boston’s best neighborhoods in which the most stylish of city dwellers can see or be seen. Whether you find yourself people watching from a patio in Copley Square or window shopping on Newbury Street, the brick sidewalks and bustling foot traffic provide the perfect backdrop for donning your out-on-the-town fashion and working it down Boylston Street. Don’t be intimidated by those sporting stilettos, either: there’s room in Back Bay for all types of expression.
The bounty of bars and bistros in the neighborhood also make it a go-to destination for the savvy Bostonian after the sun has set. So if you find yourself cozied up in a darkened booth at Lolita, or chasing tapas with tequila at Tico, you’ll need the right outfit. To that end, we recruited Lindsey Doolittle, the blogger behind L’s Fashion Dish, to demonstrate what a getup appropriate for a night in Back Bay might look like.

In her own words:
Back Bay has so many great restaurants to offer. This outfit is perfect for drinks with the girls OR date night with your significant other. Wedges make navigating the brick sidewalks a little easier and the collared blouse under the peplum allows you to wear your favorite short-sleeved pieces into the fall.
