For the holiday, I spent the week at the historic Allen's Cottage in Cape Porpoise, Maine.  I fell in love with the unique property, which admittedly had some of the most interesting lawn ornaments I’ve ever seen. If you take a closer look at the post, you will notice the rib trellis and vertebrae stool of a whale that have been decorating the yard of the cottage since the early 1900’s. Though the bones have weathered a bit since Herbert Allen originally placed them there, they still emanate a peculiar beauty and elegance that fits the quirky style of the cottage (images of the cottage to come). I decided to mix things up a little and wear my Royal’s Golden Fleet bracelet as a necklace to add the perfect pop of gold to my neckline.

  4. Love this entire outfit! Gives me inspiration to wear my Royal Fleece Bracelet as a necklace. :) Hope the trip in Maine was fun! Would love to hear about some of your travel tips for the areas in New England that you visit. It has been years since I lived back in Boston, and hope to make a trip back to New England this fall.

  12. This is such a pretty outfit and it really reminds me of sailors! Love the necklace and sandals. And that's such an incredible story about the whale bones, I would've never guessed what they were.
