Autumn in Wonderland

Sweater: J.Crew Dress: J.Crew Boots: Tory Burch c/o (old, similar) Bag: Cuyana c/o Ring: Kiel James Patrick Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick Glasses: Karen Walker

Kiel and I have driven by the Roseland Cottage in Woodstock, CT numerous times without really stopping to check out the property. The pink gothic revival "cottage" has always looked like a fairytale house to me. On this trip we finally explored the home and the beautiful grounds. The end of season flowers on the property were stunning! 

I picked up this turtleneck dress and sweater last week from J.Crew. I cannot fit into a lot of my fall clothes and needed a few pieces to get me through the season. This dress might just be the most fitted piece I've worn during this pregnancy. I bought it in a size S and figured I will probably still be able to wear it after I have the baby. I paired it with my new Cuyana bag which I've been excited to wear. Green is my favorite color and I love the quality and simplicity of this bag. Below I shared the fall pieces I'm loving from J.Crew right now and an assortment of Cuyana's gorgeous bags.

Stocking up in Woodstock

Sweater: J.Crew Skirt: J.Crew Shoes: J.Crew (old, similar style here and here) Bag: Cuyana c/o (also love it in this color) Watch: Kate Spade c/o  Bracelet: Kiel James Patrick Earrings: Kate Spade c/o Ring: Kiel James Patrick Glasses: Karen Walker 

I love exploring Woodstock, CT this time of year. The quiet New England town is perfectly charming from the historic homes to the family owned farms. It's the perfect day trip. Kiel and I cannot resist making the drive at least once a year. If you are planning a trip, here are a couple of my recommendations: 

1. Woodstock Orchards: It's picture perfect for apple picking. Stop inside the apple barn for delicious hot cider donuts and other delights of the season. 

2. Devon Point Farm: Only two miles down the road from Woodstock Orchards, Devon Point Farm is a family run farm and cider mill. The beautiful property is ideal for pick your own pumpkins and purchasing mums, gourds, and seasonal vegetables. Make sure to try the raw apple cider, it's amazing! Kiel and I picked up a half a gallon. I wish we brought home more! 

3. The Inn at Woodstock Hill: This endearing bed and breakfast with 21 rooms is the place to stay if you are planning an overnight trip to Woodstock. The inn restaurant is a great spot for dinner or lunch.

4. Rosewood Cottage: Sharing images of this historic gothic revival style home later this week. Tours of the cottage and garden are available during certain times of the year. Check the website for hours. 

5. The Golden Lamb Buttery:  Located outside of Woodstock in nearby Brooklyn, this restaurant is a must for a unique barn dining experience. Before dinner guests can enjoy cocktails while on a hayride around the property.

Woodstock is the ideal town to get in the spirit of the Fall season. If you are familiar with the area let me know if there are any places that should have been on my list.

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. 

                                      Special thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

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)
