Apple picking is an annual tradition for my family and I come fall, and it’s a tradition I was so grateful to get to continue this year when so much has been uncertain. For me, apple picking is a great excuse to get outside, enjoy the crisp fall air, and connect with the seasonality of nature. Not to mention getting to bake up some cozy apple dishes with the apples we picked – for apple recipe ideas check out this post here. This year Matt and I ventured to New Hampshire last weekend to check out Mack’s Apples…

Mums: Autumn Hues Inside & Outside Your Home

October 6th, 2020

When New England greenery takes a dive into shades of red, orange, and yellow – everyone knows fall has arrived. Add autumn hues to your outdoor aesthetic or bring pops of foliage inside with the perfect perennial: mums! If you’re like me and decorate your home for each season, the best way to let your space speak for itself is with a pop of in-season color! My favorite way to add autumn hues to my home is with both real mums outdoors and faux mums indoors. This time of year, farm stands are a great place to purchase…

An Apple Autumn Cheese Board To Fill Up On This Foliage Season

October 1st, 2020

Thank you to New England Dairy for sponsoring this post. We can all agree that Autumn is the most picturesque time of year to pack up the car and go for a drive. Whether you’re exploring some of New England’s famous fall leaf-peeping routes or looking to stock up on the tastes of the season at a local apple orchard – now more than ever – it’s nice to get out of the house and enjoy that crisp autumn air. Personally, I’ve been glancing out my window for the first glimpse of 2020 fall foliage and I’m excited to announce…

What I Bought From The 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

August 27th, 2020

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is wrapping up with only three days left of the sale. With that being said, now is the best time to snag some fall staples before the prices return to regular retail pricing. If you are wondering why so many items sold out so quickly, this year’s sale was a little smaller than years in the past which meant staple items went just as quick as investment pieces. While some items are sold out there are still a handful of items like this long cardigan, this trench coat & this men’s quilted jacket that…

How To Transition Your Outdoor Spaces Into Fall

August 22nd, 2020

The month of September is quickly approaching, and with all things pumpkin on my mind – I spent this last weekend transitioning all of my indoor and outdoor spaces from summer to fall.

This year I decided to do something special for my parents and surprise them with a fall porch makeover! With plenty of time to spend at home this autumn – I really wanted their outdoor spaces to reflect the traditional New England fall color palette of rich reds, oranges, and browns. With a budget of $200 in mind, I took a trip to Christmas Tree Shops andThat! where I enjoyed putting together three looks, to fit the aesthetic of their home and the outdoor seating area’s I’d be decorating.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Starts Today!

August 12th, 2020

Matt and I spent a lot of 2020 saving up our money while simultaneously focusing on budgeting more towards necessities and savings in all functions of our lives. We knew the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale would be a great time to replenish our closets with essentials like water repellent coats, fall jackets, and even everyday staples like – underwear, sneakers, socks & more. Since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale public access today, I went ahead and pulled together my favorite fall staples for him and her.

Fundamental Fall Pieces To Purchase From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

August 6th, 2020
Location  •   Connecticut

For me, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goes hand in hand with the thoughts of back-to-school shopping, transitional wear for fall, and the notion of summer’s end. Much like the rest of 2020, I’m shocked we are preparing to head into fall – I never thought a spring spent working from home and a summer spent summering at home, would fly by so fast. Overall, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit I’m excited about fall and the idea of stocking up on fundamental fall pieces to add to my closet.

Our Cape Cod Inspired Back Patio Renovation & Reveal!

June 29th, 2020

Thank you Scotties Facial Tissues for sponsoring this post. Over the past couple of months, Matt and I have spent considerably more time at home – working, living, and now entertaining, than we have ever done in the past. Back in March, we decided to use our time at home as productively as we could, by tackling some leftover house projects from our 2019 renovation. We, of course, started with smaller items on our to-do list like paint touch-ups and seasonal closet changeovers. Yet as we got further into 2020 we soon anticipated having even more time at home, especially…

Nothing makes me smile quite like the seafood season in New England, quality time with my sister and BYOB restaurants – where you’ll always see me with Poema Cava my favorite sparkling wine to pair with seafood! With summer weather here, and as we continue into Stage 2 of coronavirus guidelines, my favorite outdoor BYOB restaurants are finally opening back up. Not only are visiting these restaurants a great way to support small businesses but they’re also a perfect way to enjoy the company of your friends while social distancing. With guidelines constantly changing I do recommend clicking…

Nothing goes hand in hand quite like summertime in New England and going boating. Whether it’s taking a sailboat out on sunset, a daytime cruise on a Chris Craft or getting from point A to point B by ferry – which is a classic New England form of summertime transportation, as you can read about in our summer spots worth a ferry ride to post, boating is apart of a New England lifestyle whether you own one or not. Since this year a lot of time will be spent doing social distance activities like boating locally – I…
