Fiber Festival of New England

This weekend I will be with my family’s booth at the Fiber Festival of New England in Springfield, Massachusetts. If you are in the area come stop by for rovings, yarns, and more. Fall is the perfect time to start a new project. I think I will be starting some cable knit scarves!

I love the beach when it’s abandoned in the off season. This past weekend while it was nice out my friend Julia and I drove out to Sag Harbor and East Hampton and spent some time on Main Beach while it was empty with only a few brave surfers out for the day.

Falling Forward

Happy Labor Day! Hope you are all relaxing on your long weekend. As everyone breaks out their white outfits and summer sundresses for the last time until next spring it’s a great time to look forward in anticipation of Fall. I am excited for Fall boots and jackets, Thanksgiving with my family and moving to a new apartment in a new part of the city!

What are you guys looking forward to this Fall?

Another summer outfit before Labor Day passes and we all transition to our Fall closets! This is one of my all-time favorite looks and a go-to when I want to make a statement with a pop of neon. I am definitely going to miss the ease of perfect dresses sans jackets and sweaters come Fall.

What are you guys going to miss most about your Summer wardrobes?

Hi guys! Just wanted to post a few photos from my day at the Saratoga race track this past weekend. It’s a great way to spend the day if you are upstate. You can bring your own food, drink and chairs and set up a picnic on the back lawn, watch the horses prep for their race in the paddock and then watch the races trackside.

Cooperstown, NY is probably best known for the Baseball Hall of Fame but my favorite part of Cooperstown is Sunday Brunch at the Otesaga. Every Sunday in the summer you can have brunch buffet and then spend the afternoon sitting on the back porch rocking chairs overlooking Otsego Lake.
