After a few days of work in NYC last week, my sister, mom, Thomas and I drove out to Connecticut on Saturday morning. We rented a house for an extended weekend trip to enjoy the best of New England’s beautiful fall colors and weather. Ever since moving to Charleston last year, we’ve had months go by where we didn’t see any family. A mix of being in a new state plus our busy travel schedule makes it tricky to see friends and family as often as we’d like to. This mini trip was fuel for my soul and it felt so good to spend some uninterrupted time with my mom and sister (who lives in Ireland with her fiance).
We found a cozy rental near the Litchfield area, and after arriving in the later afternoon, decided to head into the town of Litchfield for an early dinner. Last year was the first time that I’d experienced New England in the fall and I absolutely fell in love. Between the lush forests filled with color and incredibly charming historical towns, it’s quite the picturesque spot to enjoy this time of year. Most of the towns we visited were quite small, but loaded with character.
I did a post on all things burgundy this season and fueled my love for the color even more with these velvet jeans from Shopbop. I love the luxe texture, especially when paired with a chunky knit like this J.O.A. one I’m wearing here. This dusty rose sweater (which is under $80) is technically an off-the-shoulder style, but I loved it more slightly draped over one shoulder instead. The colors paired together might be my favorite combo for the season. And lastly, these Aquazzura boots have been my go-to for everything lately- from dresses and skirts to jeans.
