The Cozy Leaf Sweater

Sep 27, 2019


This fall we created the perfect Kiel James Patrick sweater for autumn adventures — The Big Cozy Leaf SweaterThis oversized sweater is cozy and soft for crisp New England days and cool evenings. Wear it on foliage drives or around a lakeside bonfire. It looks perfect with a pair of well worn jeans, flannel shirt, and boots.



Zinnia Fields Forever

Sep 25, 2019


Fall is beloved for its beautiful warm colors — orange, red, yellow, pink. The Zinnia field at Dame Orchard is a bridge between the beginning of autumn and summer’s end. Flowers as far as the eye can see are highlighted by hints of red and gold in the trees. I picked flowers around sunset and the golden light was surreal. We brought home two gorgeous bouquets that made our home feel festive and colorful. Alongside leaf peeping and apple picking I will now add Zinnia picking to my favorite fall activities.


Fall Porch Decorating

Sep 23, 2019


Autumn is the best season for porch living! Kiel and I enjoy our porch all summer long but nothing compares to cozying up with a soft blanket and a mug of coffee on a crisp fall morning. We live in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by trees. It’s incredibly peaceful to listen to the birds and the rustling of the wind while admiring the brilliant foliage. In the afternoon the warm light that hits me while I work from the porch swing is heavenly. I look forward to weekend mornings and evenings reading Harry his favorite books. The porch has become an oasis for our family.


Family Apple Picking

Sep 19, 2019


This week we went to Dame Orchard for our annual family apple picking tradition. Harry was in between walking and crawling last year and this year was quite different with him running around the orchard. The majority of the apples we brought home were picked by him. He loved filling up the baskets. Hopefully this weekend I can find a little time to bake apple pies!

The Autumn Knit Dress

Sep 9, 2019
Excited to announce our newest collection for Kiel James Patrick — the Autumn Knit Dress Collection. I know I will be living in this effortless dress for fall! We introduced this style dress in three colors – Cream, Grey, and Green. I honestly cannot say which one is my favorite. This is the perfect dress for Fall excursions. All you will need is a pair of riding boots and a light coat to pair it with. It also looks great with a belt.

Designer Spotlight: Coral & Tusk

Sep 5, 2019


Excited to introduce a brand I’ve admired for the past couple of years — Coral & Tusk. I want to note that this is not a sponsored post. I initially started following this home decor brand on Instagram and really fell in love with the exquisitely crafted hand-drawn embroidered linen animal designs. I have a weakness for anything relating to adorable animals and these designs really stood out to me.


A Shoe For All Seasons

Sep 3, 2019


Excited to collaborate with Tamara Mellon for my first fall style post this season. The end of summer can be a challenge to dress for. I love combining denim, and a top that could work for summer or fall with a fun statement shoe. These red slingback shoes have the perfect sized heel for every day wear. They are beautifully crafted and the shade of red gives just the right pop of color to my ensemble.
