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…

New Englander’s Guide to Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

July 19th, 2018

Today marks the start of public access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which means it’s time to get a  jump start on revamping your fall wardrobe! Above I’ve pulled together some of my favorite looks and below I go into more detail about the styles, structures and how they fit into a New Englander’s winter wardrobe.  Season Staples    If you can buy two items and two items only, these would be the items I suggest putting into your online shopping cart. Both of these items I own personally and am actually repurchasing this year because, well frankly, winter is coming! …

Districts of Dallas

February 5th, 2018

I always feel like Friday nights are meant to be spent downtown, does anyone else agree? When Matt and I first got notified that we’d be living in Dallas for two years, we knew the best part of living outside a city, would be having the chance to experience a youthful city nightlife. Both Matt and I love keeping ourselves busy so we felt this two-year adventure would leave us with lots of different neighborhoods to discover and coffee shops to explore.

How To Feel A Part of A City, While Being A Tourist

January 26th, 2018

2018 is our year of travel and I know I’ve probably already stated that about fifteen times, but Matt and I are sooooo excited to travel as much as possible this year and to bring you all along. As some of you might know, Matt was assigned to work as an account manager in a Dallas office for two years, and with only six months left, we are really trying to cram in as many experiences as possible, before settling down back in New England.   We kicked off our year of travel first with Central Connecticut, then Vermont…

Sunset Meadow Vineyards Wine Tasting

November 13th, 2017

Vineyard Vines Dress c/o || Leopard Flats ||  After visiting Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates my Mom and I drove over to Sunset Meadow Vineyards in Goshen, CT to see what it was all about. Since we had already fit in two hours of blog shooting prior, we spent our time at the vineyard relaxing before venturing inside for some wine tasting.  When we arrived at the tasting room, we were overwhelmed with a large group of people and some very expensive camera equipment. At first, my Mom and I thought nothing of it. Personally, I figured that the winery must be shooting some promotional videos…

Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates

November 7th, 2017

Last week, I woke up to an unusually warm November day and called up my Mom to see if she wanted to hit the road to explore. She agreed and we took about an hour ride up to Goshen, CT. In the past, I had heard wonderful things about the little town of Goshen, but most importantly, I heard word of a farm and chocolate factory that I had to see with my own two eyes.  So yes, I drove an hour for artistry chocolate and yes it was worth every drop of gas. At first, I was…

5 Reasons You Should Take Your Coffee Break Outside

November 3rd, 2017

Dress (sold out, similar version without zippers linked) || Coat (ON SALE) || TIghts || Boots ||  Necklace You guys, it’s here, well not quite but it’s right around the corner…it’s ALMOST the busiest time of the year. It’s not only busy for retail employees but for basically everyone. From workers (the TCC Crew is jammed) to students (finals and term papers); to say this time of year is exhilarating is an understatement but don’t let the craziness of this holiday season wear you down.  & while I’m 100% one to dive headfirst into overloading on work, I have to…

5 Ways To Style a Scarf This Holiday Season

November 1st, 2017

Vineyard Vines Sweater c/o || Diane Gilman jeans || Plaid Scarf || Ascot || Blanket Scarf || Fringe Scarf  The other day I woke up to a brisk 32 degrees and knew it was about time to blow the dust off my scarf bin, hidden somewhere in the attic. After a good thirty minutes of searching, I found the cozy bin of scarves and was reminded how lucky we’ve been with the weather so far this fall. Usually, my scarf bin is welcomed come early September, but now that the cooler weather has arrived and flu season is amongst us,…
