Walking the Pup

Jacket: Barbour Dress: Rebecca Taylor Shoes: Marc Fisher Bag: Tory Burch (similar)  Bracelet: Kate Spade (also love this one) Watch: Tory Burch Glasses: Karen Walker  

This Rebecca Taylor shirt dress was a recent purchase from Nordstrom and it's one of my favorite new pieces. The slightly scrunched shoulders, lace appliqué detailing, and faux peplum layers creates a romantic and ladylike look. I wore a Barbour jacket and block heels but this dress would also look great with boots and a blazer. Shirt dresses are great for transitioning into fall. Sharing some of my must have shirt dresses below. One of them I wore in my last post. Special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

Earlier this summer during our stay at the 506 0n the River Inn in Woodstock, VT, Kiel and I took a pottery making class at Farmhouse Pottery located on Route 4. It was such a great experience and a fun way to spend a couple of hours. The studio/retail space is highly recommended for those visiting Woodstock. You will not leave empty handed! I was very impressed with the store aesthetic. Every product is meticiously curated and the hand-dipped pottery could not be more gorgeous, especially if you are into rustic chic. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the resident chickens walking around the property.

I love that each and every piece of pottery sold by Farmhouse Pottery is made on site by a dedicated team of skilled craftsmen who work alongside the company's founders, a husband and wife duo Zoe and James Zilian. It's always special to encounter a group of people who are really passionate about what they do. We loved getting to spend time learning about their craft. If you have a chance to visit make sure to sign up for one of the workshops. The pottery making class is a worthwhile experience. 

(Last picture was taken at the Mill at Simon Pearce  restaurant, another must if you are in the Woodstock area. Simon Pearce has a beautiful line of glassware and offers glassblowing  demonstrations on site.)
