All posts in autumn

There is nothing I love more than taking long walks in the West Village and the Upper East Side to photograph seasonal decorations. The autumn doors this year were some of the best. Enjoy! “I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin and crisp sunburnt leaves.” – Ann Drake Photos […]

I’m currently in Birmingham, Alabama for a days for a work trip. After I’m finished, interior designer Andrew Brown has generously offered to show me around and take me antiquing. I’m looking forward to seeing the town but before I left New York, I took a long walk through the city to enjoy the changing […]

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” ― Anne of Green Gables

Fall officially starts on Wednesday and there is already a little chill in the air. While I love spring, autumn is New York’s best season. I can’t wait for the leaves to turn and the light to lower.  Here’s a little inspiration to get you excited too. All photos from tumblr and Pinterest.

End of Summer Blues

I personally love fall. I can’t wait for it to arrive each year because autumn is New York’s best season. Fashion week starts right after the Labor Day holiday which starts things off with a bang. There is a palpable energy in the air. But I understand that not everyone feels the same way, especially young students […]

I’m having a great time in the Napa Valley. The weather has been perfect and the wine plentiful. What more could you ask for?!  Bon week-end!   View from Dutch Henry Winery by me.

All Hallows Eve

New York is all dressed up for autumn and Halloween right now. The Upper East Side gets very into decorating for Halloween and some of the decorations are seriously scary. I prefer the chic and subtle approach and thought I would share some of my favorites with you as well as some turning leaves. Happy […]

Indian Summer is a lovely occurrence if it doesn’t involve 80% humidity.  We’re sweating here in New York which makes it difficult to wear fall clothes.  When the weather breaks, I’ll be looking for an olive green parka like these in the latest issue of Vogue magazine.  They are perfect for the city or country living […]

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus Photo by me via Instagram.

I know a lot of you love my outfit posts so I’m going to try to start posting more.  The only problem is that I subscribe to the “quality not quantity” rule of thumb when it comes to shopping for clothes for I end up wearing the same things a lot. My wardrobe is made […]
