Friday Finds – Fall Edition

Sep 28, 2018
Fall is my favorite time of year to dress for. I love the extra layers and rich warm hues. For this edition of Friday Finds I put together a mix of items that are on my wish list for the season — high rise jeans, a cozy green sweater (I gravitate towards anything green), comfortable everyday boots,  floral skirt, a plaid dress that would look perfect with a turtleneck underneath, a classic leather handbag, and a pair of black flats that will elevate any look. Dressing for this season in particular is so much fun because the patterns and textures are endless. Florals can be worn with camel hair coats, silk can be mixed with tweed, and fluffy sweaters always look great with a well worn pair of cords.

The New England Guide to Leaf Peeping

Sep 22, 2018

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.

Rainy Days

Sep 21, 2018
Last week’s rainy humid weather had me throwing on some version of this ensemble almost every day. My yellow rain coat and Hunter Boots continue to be a staple season after season. They are my go to on days where the weather is simply miserable. While this outfit is as basic as it gets there is nothing basic about a golden wearing a raincoat and itty bitty Hunter boots.

The Oriental Bug

Sep 14, 2018

Sweater: Rebecca Taylor (similar) Jeans: Vivetta (also love these) Shoes: Alexandre Birman Bag: Tory Burch (Old, Also love this style) Watch: Kiel James Patrick Glasses: Karen Walker

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.

Ralph Lauren 50th Anniversary Show

Sep 12, 2018

Dress: Ralph Lauren (old) Shoes: Isabel Marant Bag: YSL Earrings: Tory Burch
Kiel: Tux: Ralph Lauren Shoes: Stubbs & Wootton

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.

Riding Boot Season

Sep 7, 2018

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.

Matouk Linens Factory

Sep 5, 2018

Blazer: Banana Republic (similar) Shirt: Ralph Lauren (similar) Shorts: Ralph Lauren Shoes: kate spade Bag: Tuckernuck c/o Belt: J.McLaughlin

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.
