All the Fall Things…

Given my fully-packed schedule in the coming weeks (including dinner dates, trips to New Hampshire AND New York- and Football season, baby!) I’ve been enjoying as many early-Autumnal activities as I can on my half days/days off/weekends. This includes browsing the first pumpkins to make an appearance at Red Apple Farm– and playing with the […]

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 […]

We see and talk to each other regularly, have bi-weekly dinners at my mother’s house- and spend […]

Clambaked…

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been down by the Cape, where community clambakes can be a pretty common event throughout the Summertime. Everyone brings some seafood and/or a side, maybe some drinks depending on the crowd- and you gather around to cook the food together in a fire pit and enjoy each other’s […]

OOTD: Tacos and Tides

Well hello there, July! While I’m finishing up things at work today and gearing up for a long weekend (90% of which will likely be spent at the beach)– I wanted to share one of my favorite new additions to my Summertime wardrobe- courtesy of the good folks over at SALTY CREW. This loose-fitting, super […]
