This week even with the sun shining brilliantly there is a bit of coolness in the air that is telling me Fall is right around the corner. Many of you probably wish me not to hurry such but Fall is my absolute fave season to dress for. I adore long sweater coats & leggings with boots & accessorizing with scarves, hats and more! So I’m pinning like a villain some Fall boots that I consider must haves:
We just got back from Cape Cod this past weekend and it was honestly the best family vacation we’ve had thus far! (and yes we’ve done Disney lol) The weather could not have been more perfect, sunny or beautiful. The water was deliciously warm and I am so delighted that we are making this a yearly family tradition. As big animal lovers, visiting the seals and whales in their natural environment was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. Spending the day in Provincetown was another highlight thanks to some unique shops and galleries. One of my favorite spots was Wild Rice… a boutique housing vintage jewelry as well as gorgeously vibrant prints shown in the picture above. I bought a convertible skirt with a navy blue polka dot print on one side and purple flowers on the other. Love it!!! I can’t wait to see what other pieces the store holds for me next Summer.
What do you find yourself looking/shopping for while on vacation?
Recently my husband and I took a mini vacation in honor of our 10yr wedding anniversary. Our travels took us to Fiddleheads in Littleton, New Hampshire where we were introduced to Steven McGovney Designs. What fun he has with both his whimsical ceramic creations as well as unique jewelry pieces! My favorites of course were the artist earrings. I could not take my eyes off these dainty paper earrings adorned with tiny pendants… I wanted every single pair the store carried! As for my husband? He was quite enamored with the Raven Collection…
Personally I like those that wear boots! (click above to view more!) It was quite a treat to meet a new artist and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next. What do you think?
Window shopping online can be quite fun, especially with the ability to find a great deal or a brand new discovery or designer without paying the gas mileage for such. Small boutiques provide uniqueness that I personally prefer when buying something I hope to treasure for some time. Etsy is a wonderful online plaza of talented designers who are eager to share their creations with the world. I can easily lose myself and all track of time scouring their stores. Check out my recent finds:
“Home of the BFF Necklaces and Mother & Daughter Necklaces.” I just love the style of these pieces as well as the updated version of a classic favorite like the best friend necklace. With a gorgeous array of colors and feminine stamped design you just can’t miss the mark here for surprising your Mom, daughter, sister or best friend with a unique present. My favorite is the Mother and 2 Daughter necklace shown above. Shop owner, Jessica Marshall is very happy to accommodate your choice of color or customize a set for you.
How beautiful are these colors? I absolutely love skirts and dresses for the Summer. They are my go-to outfit for everything from BBQ’s to our local festivals and even hanging with the kids down by the lake. May does a gorgeous job of playing with vibrant colors & patterns along with flowing fabrics so it was love at first site for me when I found this shop.
