Nothing compares to New England in the Fall. While all four seasons are special, New England really puts on it’s best show late September and October when a slight chill is in the air and the leaves turn crimson and gold. I anticipate this change in season all year long. The first brisk morning and the onset of sweater weather, apple picking with family and friends, carving jack-o-lanterns on the kitchen table, bundling up for a local arts & crafts festival, driving around country roads to peep the fall foliage, and stocking up on cider donuts, kettle corn and apple cider are a few traditions that make this time of year remarkable.

Picking season is here! This weekend we went apple picking to shoot images for our new fall Kiel James Patrick flannel line. Our flannel dress is one of our most popular items and it is also the coziest. I really wish we had introduced a mini flannel for Harry.
Antique rug shopping is a passion for Kiel and I. Whenever we have a free weekend we love to take a drive and pop into some of our favorite local antique stores or peruse Craig’s List before bed for new oriental rug listings. I’ve been on the hunt for a blue and white oriental for ages but either the price or the pattern hasn’t been quite right.
Sharing a few iPhone snapshots of my experience at the Ralph Lauren 50th anniversary show in Central Park. To say it was a magical evening is an understatement. The black tie event to honor the visionary who pioneered classic all American fashion was a star studded affair. I was so nervous and excited to take a picture with him. Ralph Lauren has been my style inspiration for years.
I really enjoyed how each runway look highlighted the brand’s history and timelessness.
Fall is the best season to dress for. I live for the layers, textures, and colors — wools paired with silks, cozy sweaters and jeans, and plaid everything. The beauty of a good pair of riding boots is that they will tie together almost any ensemble in a way that is so perfectly autumn.
During my endless hunt for new bed linens I came across the most beautiful linens I had ever seen — Matouk linens. Every bedding set I fell in love with during late night Pinterest sessions ended up being a part of Matouk’s upscale line. They have the most gorgeous hand-stitched scalloped sheets and monogrammed pillow cases. Their duvets are soft and luxurious. Expensive, yes… but well worth the price.
