OOTD: Orchard Casual

Although I anticipate the temperatures will get excruciatingly high again before the end of the month (both Summer and Winter are well-known to never leave New England quietly!)– the brief reprieve from the heat and the humidity, along with much-needed rain throughout the Northeast has been a pleasant way to welcome in the month of […]

250 Posts? Time For a Fall Giveaway!

When I first started “Coffee & Chiffon” at the very beginning of 2020- committing to a 3x a week posting schedule that would cover a variety of topics I was interested in like travel, food/cooking, beauty/makeup and fashion- I had no idea that just a few weeks later a global pandemic would change the world […]
