Lucky Catch


















Sweater: LL Bean Signature  c/o Shirt: J.Crew (Last seen here)  Shorts: J.Crew Shoes: Sebago Belt: Kiel James Patrick  Bag: J.Crew  Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick Glasses: Ralph Lauren

Last week Kiel and I drove to Portland, Maine for a seaside jaunt hosted by LL Bean Signature to get a taste of the charming city, and a first look at their fall collection. The trip was everything a New England girl could hope for. The day started with an early morning lobstering cruise aboard the Lucky Catch. We not only got to wear the adorable lobstermen garb, but we also learned a few things, such as when to keep a lobster and when to throw it back to sea (the tiny lobsters we caught were just too small to eat). After a great morning we shopped the LL Bean Signature fall collection. I fell in love with the classic attire such as the fisherman sweater I'm wearing in this post,and their Italian wool blazers. Think beautiful plaid and herringbone! A visit to the LL Bean Flagship store in Freeport, a sunset schooner ride, Portland Head Lighthouse, and a sampling of the finest cuisine Portland has to offer provided the recipe for a perfect getaway! I can think of no better place than Portland to Wear Life Well.

Anchored Style




Shirt: J.Crew  Skirt: Corilynn c/o Shoes: Lilly Pulitzer Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick

Even though summer doesn't officially end for another month, it feels like the season is finally winding down. I'm getting my fill of summer brights and nautical attire before I make the switch to cozy sweaters and corduroys. The skirt I'm wearing in this post is perfect for my current state of mind. I obviously love the anchor pattern, but aside from that the fit is perfect and it's manufactured in the USA. Corilynn  is giving away one skirt from their current styles to one of my readers. Enter with Rafflecopter below for your chance to win. Contest will begin on August 21st, and will end on August 25th at midnight. I will announce a winner on Monday. Good Luck!

Last week Kiel and I had the good fortune of spending the day with Brion Judge, the gentleman birder behind the blog Bastion & Lark, and his wife Kristina. A couple of amateur birders, we had a great time having Mr. Judge show us the ropes of birding 101. It was quite beautiful to spend the sunset at Charlestown Breachway and Marsh, getting a closer look at Great Blue Herons and Snowy Egrets. Having always enjoyed nature walks, it was a bonus to have our very own tour guide of the feathered variety.
