Changes in Providence








Jacket: kate spade c/o Sweater: kate spade c/o Skirt: J.Crew Factory Heels: kate spade c/o (also love these leopard shoes)  Bag: kate spade c/o Glasses: Gucci Bracelets: kate spade 1,2 c/o Earrings: Vintage

This month kate spade is all leopard everything. Today I'm featuring an outfit that I wore to brunch last Saturday including a couple of pieces from their new collection such as the bag and shoes. I really love the needlepoint detailing on this bag combined with the calf hair leopard. It's a beautiful piece that will enhance the look of a classic outfit. The shoes are just the right height and I prefer the block heel. I have a feeling I'll be getting a lot of use of these shoes after the baby arrives.

Easy Like Sunday Morning















Sweater: Vince (only available in Charcoal) Shirt: Madewell Pants: Ingrid & Isabel Shoes: Madewell (sold out in Brown, similar )Bag: Madewell Glasses: Karen Walker Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick

Last weekend in New Hampshire was just what I needed. The rest of this month is pretty busy for me between work, a wedding, and preparing for our baby's arrival.  I enjoyed plenty of rest and relaxation during our stay at Mount Washington. One of our favorite things to do up North is go antique shopping and explore the charming towns. In Bethlehem, NH we stopped at the Lonesome Wolf and had the best time looking through a beautifully curated collection of antiques,vintage jewelry, and newer items such as books and candles. I took home a couple of pieces of costume jewelry and an amazing smelling candle (Lonesome Wolf//Mountain). 

The outfit I wore on this day was incredibly cozy. I did a little shopping on Nordstrom prior to this trip and was not entirely sure how some of the pieces I purchased would fit me. (Nordstrom's quick and easy returns and exchanges have made shopping the last few months a lot easier.) Luckily everything I bought worked out. The Vince cashmere turtleneck is pricey but extremely comfortable. I didn't mind spending the money on it as I know it will be a piece I will continue to wear each season. I bought it a size up from what I would normally wear but I think it will still look good slightly oversized. I paired the sweater with a plaid shirt and my Ingrid & Isabel maternity jeans. I love to wear plaid under my sweaters and turtlenecks this time of year for a pop of color. If you are wondering this plaid shirt already came oversized and I did not have to size up. I shared a few of my favorite cozy turtleneck sweaters for this season below.

Special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post.

Fall Foliage Run

Scenes from Route 302 in New Hampshire -- Over the weekend Kiel and I took a road trip up North to Bretton Woods. We stayed at one of our favorite hotels, the Mount Washington Hotel. During the winter it becomes a true winter wonderland but it is just as gorgeous in the Fall. The foliage was not quite peak but the view from the hotel and scenes along route 302 and Crawford Notch (see my winter post) were stunning! I would love to go back next year to hike some of the trails along the Notch. If you are planning a foliage trip this year there is still plenty of time to visit within the next couple of weeks.

I was so happy that the weather was finally crisp and comfortable. I wore this J.Crew shawl with a couple of different outfits. It's easy to pack and ideal for light layering. The Cuyana sweater is cozy and oversized. I love the sleeves. I'm wearing a size S but would definitely order a size down normally. As I'm limited in what I can wear these days I love pieces that I can mix and match.

Autumn Gives Us Life

Counting down the days until we meet our baby boy! Shot these images last weekend during a photoshoot for our new KJP fall jewelry collection (coming soon). The bag I'm wearing in this post is from a recent collaboration between Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific and Feed. Proceeds from each bag will provide 50 meals to families in need via Feed's local giving partner, Food Bank for NYC. It's the perfect fall bag for a great cause!
