Apple Picking in Fairfield County, Connecticut

September 17th, 2018

You haven’t experienced a true New England fall until you’ve ventured out to one of our many apple orchards to partake in the longstanding tradition of apple picking. This past weekend my sister, Mom and I headed into New York City to look at colleges; and decided to make a pit stop at an infamous apple orchard in Fairfield County. We aren’t often down in Fairfield County, so I was eager to take advantage of our location and taste test a couple freshly baked cider donuts.  We drove from Stamford to Shelton and easily found the farm sitting upon…

Why A Quilted Long Coat is The Ideal Transitional Fall Jacket

September 14th, 2018

While it’s not the official start of Fall yet, New England’s recent brisk weather has made it feel more like mid-October than the balmy Septembers we’ve had in the past. This cooler weather has had me unboxing my turtlenecks and transitional fall jackets, sooner than expected and preparing for the unpredictable weather New England has in store for us.  If you’re headed to New England this September I’d highly recommend investing in a transitional fall jacket. I get countless questions from you all about how to transition your wardrobe into fall, so today I’m sharing where you should…

A Taste Of Fall, In Providence Rhode Island

September 10th, 2018

  This past Saturday Matt, Tessa and I jumped into our car and drove straight to Providence, Rhode Island for a day of exploring. The last time I had a chance to visit Providence was way back in 2011, so we knew a short trip up there was long overdue, for all of us. After a quick pit stop, or two, to grab breakfast and coffee, our little crew was on our way to the capital of Rhode Island. We had so much fun exploring the different regions Providence has to offer and even made a last minute…

Labor Day Weekend & Best Labor Day Sales

September 2nd, 2018

      Labor Day Weekend is my favorite three day weekend of the year because it signifies the start of school and most importantly the anticipation of fall. Now while I’m no longer a student, I’m a huge fan of creating and maintaining a routine which can be tricky during the summer. But with all the kiddos back in school and work-related travel slowing down, I’m excited to get more settled in Connecticut and continue our home search.    Now I had quite a busy weekend with Tessa as we explored Fairfield County and continued her college search. We…

Creating A Morning Routine Even If You’re Not A Morning Person

August 31st, 2018

[outfit details] I mean, there is no hiding that I’m not a morning person. I have never been and never will be and I’m very self-aware of that; however, over the past few months, I started to find myself waking up on the wrong side of the bed morning after morning. I often found myself waking up around 8:00 AM already with a sense of not having enough time in the day to accomplish what needs to be done. Now part of that has to do with how busy I’ve been with work and work-related travel, but a…

2018 Summer Favorites

August 29th, 2018

Summer is quickly coming to a close here in New England; students are heading off to school, beach towns are starting to feel less and less populated along with the random hints of foliage peeking through the trees. This past summer was a hectic one between my travel schedule, Matt and I’s move back to New England and endless weekends of house hunting; with all that being said, I’ve had the chance to test out a bunch of new products that I had to share with you all!  Summer 2018 Favorites List:    + Adella Bralette  + Boston Red…

Strolling Through Stonington

August 27th, 2018

Last Friday my sister, mom and I decided to take a spontaneous road trip down to a town we’ve all been dying to explore, Stonington Connecticut. This specific town has been on my, to-do list for a while because you all know I love exploring the nooks and crannies of New England. In fact last summer we drove all the way down towards Stonington in hopes of shooting summer content, only to find ourselves lost and in Rhode Island, equally scenic enough. Soooo map in hand and ice coffees in cupholders we embraced on an hour ride towards…

Halter Neck Fit And Flare

August 21st, 2018

I take my dress purchases very seriously and I often invest in pieces I know I’ll wear in my day to day life. With that being said, I usually find myself purchasing shift dresses, shirt dresses, and the occasional statement dress to have on hold come special events. Now since I wear statement dresses the least amount, I’m always hesitant about investing in a piece and often wait until they go on sale, to pull the trigger. So you can only imagine how excited I was when I saw this darling halter neck fit and flare dress go…

My Dream New England Beach House Town…

July 23rd, 2018

      I mean, I feel like this post would be a fun way to open up a very important conversation. This conversation topic is something I’ve methodically thought about over and over again until I knew my decision was certain. So here it goes, let’s discuss where you’d buy a New England beach house if the budget wasn’t an issue. Good question, right?   Okay, before we go down the rabbit hole and dig any deeper into this topic we need to discuss this gorgeous flutter sleeve shirt, I’m wearing. This blouse has to be one of the most…
