OOTD: Preppy and Plaid

Every once in a while, I’ll spot something for sale that, at the moment- might not make much sense to buy right then and there- be it the time of year, the weather, etc., but something in the back of my mind tells me that said impulse purchase will most definitely find it’s place and […]

OOTD: Wild Wild West

Even I have to admit that I do find it a little amusing that I officially kicked off my vacation this past weekend by riding out an unpredictable hurricane/tropical storm from home- it’s pretty much on brand for me and the timing of my life, really- but this morning I’m hopefully going to be boarding […]

A Few of My Favorite Things: June 2021

Summertime is well underway, and as we prepare for an impending heat wave in the Northeast this week and upcoming Fourth of July plans this coming weekend- I wanted to take some time (while sitting in front of my air conditioner, of course) to talk about some of the products, items and miscellaneous odds and […]

OOTD: Coastal Casual

I think when a lot of people who have never traveled to the Northeast try to imagine Summer along the coast in New England, they picture weekend clambakes, plenty of lobster rolls, historic lighthouses and beautiful bike paths overlooking the shorelines- and they’re not wrong. We have plenty of that and more this time of […]
