As I’ve heavily streamlined my closet this year, the color palette has been largely honed to the following: black, white, red, blue, tan, repeat. And while I have been feeling more at east than ever among those hues, I never want to feel bored by it. So to mix things up, I like to play with shapes and patterns.
Last weekend Adam and I thought outside the typical dinner and a movie date night box. We were still at the lake house in the Pocono Mountains of PA (big on lakeside relaxation, short on trendy hotspots) and Adam took me to explore this old building he had spotted earlier in the weekend. It turned out to be Hawley Silk Mill, a total local treasure.
I’ve been sharing quite a bit of casual, weekend style these days on the blog. And while I like to fantasize that this blog could be my full time gig, the reality is that if you catch me midweek I’m much more likely to be dressed like this and on my way to the office than like this and on my way to Central Park.
I grew up a few hours from the Poconos Mountains and had always gone in winter to ski, but had never visited during the Summer until meeting Adam. His family has a cabin on Lake Wallenpaupack there and we are lucky enough to spend plenty of Summer weekends there now. For those in the New York area, it’s just a 2+ hour drive (car or bus are the easiest ways to get there) and a blissful escape from the city.
