A couple of weeks ago, my husband James and I made our annual "leaf peeping" trip to Vermont, and, boy, was it amazing!  Vermont is so beautiful this time of year - the rich colors of the leaves are truly magical, and, along with the crisp fall air, they made for the most romantic of atmospheres :)

Here is a breakdown of our weekend!

Where we stayed:  The Equinox Resort in Manchester

What We Did: 

Massages at the Equinox Spa: Hands down, the best massage I have ever had.
Shopping at Simon Pearce: Although a bit distant from where we stayed, a visit is well worth the drive, which provides a great way to take in the foliage. (The store also has an incredible restaurant.)
Drinks and live music at Falcon Bar.
A stroll around Woodstock, which is the most charming little town ever.
 Shopping in Manchester, a town known for its great outlets.
Cozy walks with our fur baby (the hotel is dog friendly!).

Where We Ate:
Dinner at the Marsh Tavern (ask for a table near the fire and try their kale salad)
Lunch at The Red Rooster at the Woodstock Inn
Fresh Warm Cider Doughnuts from the Equinox Hotel
Dinner at the Copper Grouse at the newly opened Taconic Hotel
Brunch at the Dorset Inn


Earrings: Similar
Bow Top: Similar
Booties: Chanel
Bag: Vintage Gucci c/o my late grandma Patsy

I am so excited to share one of my favorite sweaters for fall with you all!  The cropped style of it could not be more perfect for all of the high-wasted cuts that are totally in this season, especially because it hits at just the right spot!  This sweater also provides a twist to the preppy cable knit classics that we have grown to love! I had originally styled this look with a pair of cute jeans, but when I came across this tartan vintage skirt on my stroll around Woodstock, Vermont, I knew it would be the perfect match for this sweater!  I must say, this is one of my favorite looks thus far - I totally felt like a college prep from the seventies, and I loved every minute of it!  If you're in the Woodstock area, you must check out Encore Designer Consignment , the gem of a store where I found this plaid dream.  Also, be sure to tune in tomorrow for details on my weekend in Vermont!

Happy Thursday!

Tonight's "Under 100" picks are all based on things I love: pink, bows, pearls, lame, leopard, and palms. I have already ordered the caftan, the clutch, and the bow jacket....plus I own the pearl Lisi Lerch tassel earrings (which I found for you all on sale for $88.00!).  We will see where else my ordering takes me this evening :)

I hope you had a great weekend!
