On Saturday as we drove back to the city from the lake house there was a moment at a stoplight in which Adam and I looked at each other and we realized we were smack dab in the middle of the most picturesque small town… and since Adam is always scouting his next picture and I’m always chasing cute stoops/houses this place was pretty much a Fall dream. So promptly, the car was pulled over and we went for a wander.
Seasonally speaking, I’m not sure there is anything more beautiful than Fall in the Northeast. New York is just starting to turn it’s leaves, but on a quick overnight trip to the lake house in the Poconos this weekend – Adam and I got to really surround ourselves with foliage. And it just never loses it’s magic for me. Since it was already pretty chilly in the mountains, I layered up – starting with this plaid poncho.
If this little Mod dotted dress doesn’t say Fall I don’t know what does. The Seventies are huge this season, but I can never resist a bit of a Sixties reference (RIP Mad Men…). I wore this look to the office earlier this week but it would work just as well for a cocktail with the girls or a lunch date.
I am certain that our time spent in Prague is the closest I will ever come to living in a fairytale. The castles, the colors, the… everything. It just felt like magic. For the most part I try to pack practically with solids that I can mix and match – but I was happy to have packed a few standout pieces like this plaid skirtand floral dress for a city that felt like it deserved a little dressing up.
I’m taking a break today from Europe posts to share a little of what I’ve been wearing around New York lately. The weather warmed back up slightly yesterday (this weekend was cccollddd, right?!) and so I’m taking every opportunity to sport bare legs (in the form of flowy skirts) and lighter jackets while I still can.
