Happy Thanksgiving week! I'm so looking forward to Thanksgiving. I can't wait to have a few days to just relax and spend time with my family and (hopefully) take a little break from work. Barbour Beadnell // Jeans (old, similar here) // Booties (similar here) // Sweater (from the Harvard Coop!) // Necklace // Bag (old, similar here) This is one of my go-to fall outfits. Anytime I throw . . .
I just realized that at this time next week I will probably be passed out after eating one too many pieces of pie. I love Thanksgiving. It is truly one of my favorite holidays. It is so cozy and filled with love. It's so nice to take a moment to really reflect and express thanks for everything we have. Plus, I happen to love stuffing and cranberry sauce and turkey. Family, the Macy's parade, . . .
It's finally starting to feel like fall around these parts, and I'm enjoying the chance to finally wear all of my plaid skirts and flannel tops and blanket scarves again! This weekend it seems like all the leaves finally changed at once, and with Halloween right around the corner it feels like we're really in the heart of autumn. This is the perfect time of year for a cute little plaid . . .
Because this blog is new, I figured it might be nice to tell you a little bit about myself, so I wrote up 15 things that you (probably) don't know about me. Here's a little bit about the girl behind the blog... Summer is my favorite time of year. I love everything about it-- the warm weather, the BBQs, the pool, the beach, the cute sundresses, and the laid-back attitude. Even though I've . . .
We spent the Fourth Day of our Mediterranean Cruise with Celebrity Cruises in St. Tropez. Let's just say I can see why Brigitte Bardot decided to make this gorgeous town her home. The streets are so colorful and charming, and the town is filled with winding roads leading to squares with blossoming flowers and quaint cafes. St. Tropez is everything you dream the South of France will . . .
It may be September now, but I'm not putting away my seersucker dresses just yet! As you can see, I'm still holding on to summer over here for as long as I can! While it seems like so many stores (and bloggers!) have jumped headfirst into fall, I'm still savoring the last few weeks of warm weather. There will be plenty of time for apple-picking, pumpkin spice lattes, and flannel later on, . . .
I just spent the most lovely Saturday night wandering around Annapolis and eating the most incredible food. I'm trying to wear all my summery dresses while I still can, so I pulled out one of my favorite Lilly Pulitzer dresses. I love anything pink, and this pattern is bright and colorful without being too overwhelming. Speaking of Lilly, Monday is the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale! . . .
Annapolis is one of my favorite places. It's a super easy day trip from DC (just about an hour), but it feels like a world away. It has the most adorable little downtown right along the harbor, the best crab cakes, and lots of cute little stores to explore. (Wearing - Top: Old Navy, Shorts: J.
