A Local Gem.

Before I get into pretty places and lovely dinners, I want to just say how devastating and heartbreaking the news coming out of Nepal is. I hope everyone considers donating a little bit to a valued and established charity to help people there get back on their feet- there is a list here from Time Magazine of six great options if you are looking for one.

This past weekend we drove down to Connecticut to have dinner with my parents at Sharpe Hill Vineyard in Pomfret, CT.  You don’t think of Connecticut as having vineyards, seeing as we’re under snow for what seems like six months of the year, but they do! And Sharpe Hill also has a pretty amazing restaurant too!  It’s all very colonial and cozy, with only about 10-12 tables, and housed in a barn building with whitewashing vaulted, beamed ceilings and a double sided fireplace in the center.

A Little NYC Trip.

Last week I zipped down to NYC for a night and got to do some cool stuff.
Like get a tour of the Duralee design studio where they come up with the prints and wovens that we use in our work all the time! I can’t show you a lot of what I saw (sneak previews of some fun new lines) but it was so interesting!
I love that a lot of the creative work isn’t on the computer- concepts for new collections begin as inspiration boards on the walls of the studio- from pictures of fashion to scraps of historical prints…

Our Jamaica Trip

After the book tour and the stress of our first (failed) round of IVF, I figured Andrew and I were due for some serious relaxation.  We knew we wanted to go somewhere we could get to on a direct flight that wasn’t insanely expensive that also took our saved points and miles from rewards programs we had.  We basically spun a globe and pointed and ended up with Jamaica.  An easy direct 4 hour flight from Boston, we figured it would be perfectly sunny and after some research, settled on Round Hill Resort in Montego Bay.  I’d heard of it before, but never seriously looked into it (other than Ralph Lauren’s villa there!) Turns out, my grandparents went a few times back in the 50’s/ 60’s too!  So we just booked it (and yes, we paid for absolutely everything, no sponsored anything here) and didn’t think twice. And I’m happy to say, it was PERFECT!

Round Hill is the most charming, old school meets modern day resort.  Truly.

Such classic design (updated by Ralph Lauren, whose house, as a mentioned, is on the property).  Simple but totally lovely- just enough luxury but no stuffiness AT ALL.

Fashion Friday: What to Wear on the Plane

Having JUST returned from our amazing vacation last night, I thought I’d take the suggestion of an Instagram follower and share what I like to wear on the plane when traveling to and from warm to cold weather.  I never travel in sweats or workout clothes because I really do like feeling put together and alert when I travel (unless on an overnight flight, then bring on the leggings and big comfy sweaters!)  Getting properly dressed just makes you feel better! A close variation on this outfit got me from Boston to Jamaica and back without being absolutely freezing or sweaty as hell on either end or in the middle!
