Kiel's Fall Style

Fleece: Patagonia (also love this and this)  Shirt: Mizzen + Main Jeans: Levi's Shoes: Gucci (similar), LL Bean Hat: Vineyard Vines

Kiel is taking over my blog today for a special collaboration with Nordstrom. In case you didn't know, fall is our favorite time of year and we both love dressing for the new season. I'm excited to have Kiel showcase his fall style in this post. He loves layering and dressing for outdoor adventures. Patagonia has a great line of fleeces and light jackets that are great for layering on days that start off cool and warm up as the afternoon goes on. The fleece featured is both cozy and rugged. It's perfect for autumn excursions that include hiking, canoeing, and even apple picking. I may just have to steal it from him!

Fall Florals

Dress: Eliza J  Cardigan: Madewell Shoes: Kate Spade Bag: Kate Spade Glasses: Karen Walker Earrings: Vintage Bracelets: Kiel James Patrick Lip Gloss: Bare Minerals // Maverick

September is a great month for wearing dresses. Most mornings start off chilly, heat up during the afternoon, and then cool down for the evening. I find a long sleeve dress to be perfect for this time of year. In the mornings I leave the house with a light jacket or cardigan that can be taken off as the days goes on and temps rise. The cardigan featured from Madewell is so cozy and it comes in four colors. I wind up throwing it over a lot of my dresses these days.

Dresses are the easiest thing for me to wear during this pregnancy. I have six weeks to go! While my dress options are limited, Nordstrom still has a great selection that I can wear over the next few weeks such as the dress featured. It's not maternity. I'm wearing a size 6 and would usually order a 0 or 2. Below I linked a few other dresses perfect for the season.

September Sweater Weather

Sweater weather is almost here! Last weekend was perfect, mild days and cool nights. This week has been a little on the humid side. It's the humidity that has me really wishing for Fall. In honor of my favorite season I've rounded up some of my favorite cozy sweaters for her and him. (Pictures featured are from last fall)

Picnic and a Movie

Jacket: Ralph Lauren c/o  (30% off this weekend) Dress: After Market (25% 0ff) Shoes: Tory Burch c/o Bag: Ralph Lauren c/o (30% 0ff this weekend) Necklace: Kiel James Patrick Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick
Kiel: Blazer: Brooks Brothers (old, similar) Shirt: Ralph Lauren Pants: Ralph Lauren Shoes: Gucci Hat: Kiel James Patrick

Scenes from last night's picnic and a movie with Newport Film at Ocean Cliff Hotel in Newport, RI. The evening could not have been more perfect for the last outdoor screening of the season. The air was crisp and ideal for bundling up with sweaters and plaid blankets. For the past four years Kiel and I have been a picnic judge for the event. This year's theme was "Posen & Plaid" in honor of the featured  Zac Posen documentary House of Z Designer and film subject Zac Posen (Project Runway, Creative Director for Brooks Brothers Women's wear) and film director Sandy Chronopoulos were present after the screening for a Q&A. 

The last outdoor screening (usually a fashion focused film)  is always one of my favorite events and a great way to end the summer. People usually arrive early to set up their picnics, socialize, and enjoy the live music. There are always so many beautiful picnic presentations that it can be hard to choose a winner. I shared a few images from my favorites. If you are local or plan to be in the area next summer I highly recommend attending one of Newport Film's free summer outdoor movie nights.

Sophie (check out her blog): Dress: Jack Wills c/o (now 50% 0ff) Necklace: Kiel James Patrick

Trying to catch up on the last of my summer posts before I go into fall mode. These images are from a beautiful evening aboard the Alabama in Vineyard Haven with Jack Wills taken mid July. Jack Wills invited our team to this experience while we were working on the Vineyard to shoot our new shift dresses. We spent the day cruising the harbor before changing into our party attire for an evening that included a lobster dinner, a live music performance from Antonio Lulic (he has opened for Ed Sheerhan almost every tour and sounded amazing in such an intimate setting.), and dancing. I wasn't up to dancing but it was fun to watch our team enjoy themselves! Kiel and I were content to sit and take in the beautiful setting. It's a night I'll always remember!
