Thanksgiving Cheese Board

Nov 15, 2018

Tis the season for Friendsgiving! Earlier this month our friends Kat and Jeremy hosted a friendsgiving dinner at their charming family farmhouse in Connecticut. Each guest was responsible to bring a dish. Kiel and I were assigned a charcuterie board. I was thrilled! I get a lot of enjoyment out of putting together a pretty spread. There are so many different ways to put a cheese board together and there’s really no right way to do it. For me it’s the ultimate pre-dinner snack.

Kiel posted a story of my board on his Instagram account and I received a lot of questions about it.

Cozy Mountain Weekend

Nov 7, 2018
This week we released our signature New England Tartan collection for Kiel James Patrick. This plaid will be used throughout our line. It’s a beautiful blend of all the colors of our celebrated seasons, traditions, memories, and the magic of the beloved place were are so proud to call home.
We shot these images while we were in Vermont. The foliage was at its peak and the cabin we rented for the weekend could not have been cozier. We spent our days exploring the area and our nights watching movies by the fire. Normally when I’m on vacation I love to go out to eat but we were content to stay in and order pizza. We also stocked up on food from the Woodstock Farmer’s Market. They have the best offering of wine and cheese and I really love their deli section.

My Favorite Winter Boots

Nov 5, 2018

Boots from top to Bottom: Hunter Boots, Hunter Boots c/o, LL Bean c/o, LL Bean, Sigerson Morrison (Linked latest version of my boot, this style is nearly identical in appearance), and Montelliana

Right after Halloween my thoughts immediately turn to winter. Kiel and I usually experience our first snowfall around Thanksgiving when we spend the holiday in New Hampshire with Kiel’s family. I love to stock up on winter essentials such as boots and knee socks a few weeks in advance of Black Friday to bring along on my trip.

Sezane in Scituate

Nov 2, 2018

This fall I’m really loving Sezane. The brand has become my new go to for staple pieces. The clothes are really well made and classic with a tailored fit. On most days I tend to wear some version of the outfit featured in this post– cozy sweater, jeans, loafers, and a wool coat to tie my look together. I tend to love a look that is put together but also comfortable. Sezane is great for both those everyday pieces and ensembles for the office.

A Jolly Halloween

Oct 31, 2018

Happy Halloween — Love Sarah, Kiel, Harry, Bennie, and Puffin. Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe evening! Here are a few snapshots from our home. Can you tell we love this holiday!?

Charming Woodstock, Vermont

Oct 31, 2018
No place does fall better than Woodstock, Vermont. The town puts on it’s best show when the autumn leaves are on display. Resident homes and shops alike take great pride in dressing up their porches, windows, walkways, and front steps for the season. Woodstock literally becomes an autumn wonderland. We were really lucky to visit during peak foliage. There was a gorgeous sight along every country road — one of the best sights being the famed Sleepy Hollow Farm. There are many pictures of its beauty circulating around the internet. I think a visit to Woodstock every October would be a dream.

Happy Birthday Harry

Oct 29, 2018
Today is Harry’s first birthday! How fast a year flies by! It’s been incredible to watch him grow. I want to document every second so that it can never be forgotten. He loves to hold onto Bennie when he walks and finds it hilarious to try and feed bits of his food to others. Harry looks incredibly sweet whenever he twirls his hair while drinking a bottle. I love the way he plays with my hair when he’s getting sleepy. These are moments that I will cherish forever. I’m excited to see the changes that another year will bring.
This weekend we celebrated Harry’s special day with family and friends. I’m sharing a few snapshots from the party. Originally Kiel and I planned for our farm themed party to be outdoors but the weather had other plans. Almost everyone showed up in flannels and cowboy hats. We hired a traveling petting zoo for the kids. I might have been the most excited. A DJ played country music and the adults enjoyed singing Karaoke. Harry ended the night in his pajamas unwrapping gifts (with a little help from mom). His favorite gift of all was the tissue paper! Happy Birthday Harry! You are so loved!

The Nightmare Before Halloween

Oct 24, 2018

Halloween is quickly creeping upon us! Finding the perfect costume doesn’t have to be a nightmare. Today I’m sharing some of my looks from the past few years in addition to costume ideas that I’ve come across on the internet and really love. The DIY projects always amaze me. Some costumes are so simple to put together and yet so brilliant.

Grove Street

Oct 19, 2018
Last week Kiel and I spent a couple of days in New York with the Dyson team for the launch of Dyson’s new Air Wrap — a blow dryer, curler, smoothing brush, and more that styles hair without the use of extreme heat. The most magical thing about the Air Wrap is that it has the ability to attract hair to wrap on its own around the curling barrel. It’s a really innovative new product and everything you would expect from the Dyson name. James Dyson and celebrity hair stylist Jen Atkin came out to introduce the product to a very excited crowd. It was a really incredible event to be a part of. I will be sharing more on the Dyson Airwrap and the launch in a later post. 
During our down time we ate our way through the city, did a little shopping, and explored the West Village. The West Village was putting on its’ best show for Autumn. We walked by all of the popular locales including Grove Court and the Friends Apartment. I loved all of the pumpkins and autumn decor on the doorsteps.
