Expect lots of sailing and harbor photos mixed with magnificent mansions. One of the ones that I won’t be touring is Beaulieu. It’s the private domain of Ruth Buchanan […]

While I was on Mackinac Island, everyone kept commenting on and complimenting my espadrilles. I brought three pair because they are comfortable and the flat pairs are easy to pack. I’m not the only one who is a fan of espadrilles. The Duchess of Cambridge and her sister Pippa Middleton Matthews share a love for […]

If you’ve got $65 Million lying around, you could buy a piece of history. Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg is selling her 340 acre oceanfront property Red Gate Farm on Martha’s Vineyard which was purchased by her mother Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in 1979.

Glover House

Another house I love on Main Street in Sag Harbor is just coming up for sale. The Glover House was built by master craftsman Benjamin Glover in 1810 in the classic tradition and flair of a true Captain’s house. In 1850, the neighboring carriage house was combined with the house for Glover’s daughter to live […]

As soon as I saw the new Frances Valentine Pre-Fall 2019 Lookbook, I immediately recognized that it was photographed at the Hannibal French House in Sag Harbor. I would have recognized it regardless since it has a very distinct Italianate exterior but I also just walked by it every single day last week. When I […]

One of the highlights of my trip to Sag Harbor was getting to see my friend Chris Kann‘s charming Sag Harbor cottage. I’ve seen photo on Instagram but it’s even better in person. I arrived around 4:00pm on Friday and the light was so beautiful. We drank rosé in the yard and watched the cardinals […]

I’m in Sag Harbor this week and I’ve already done a little shopping. It was warmer than expected when I arrived so I bought this white shirt and yesterday I finally succumbed to the Birkenstock trend with this white pair from the Goop pop up shop. Since it’s raining here today and I am delaying […]
