Great Barrington Stroll

Curtis, our friends Lauren & Drew, and I took a lovely day trip this past Friday to Great Barrington, Mass. It was a nice sunny day where we walked up and down the main stretch, checking out local shops, grabbing treats, coffee and lunch.

Right when we arrived we popped into One Mercantile – a dream shop for Lauren & myself. It had letterpressed cards, screen printed napkins, beautiful coffee table books, handmade soaps and much more. We both left with a couple items (we couldn’t help ourselves!) Next we browsed around Rubiner’s – a cheesemonger & grocer shop which not only had delicious cheese, but was a stunningly beautiful space. Attached to the back and owned by the same people was Rubi’s, a cafe where we grabbed some drinks and treats. Everyone was extremely happy with their warm drinks and we wandered around a little more until lunch at Baba Louie’s. This pizza place was perfection – I got the Dolce Vita pie – which was tomato sauce, wilted spinach, fresh mozzarella, california figs, gorgonzola, prosciutto and parmesan topped with infused rosemary oil (YUM). Lastly we poked around a couple other shops (Twigs was another favorite) and settled on some homemade ice cream at SoCo Creamery. It was a lovely little trip, and only about an hour and a half from Hartford – definitely doing it again!

Happy Friday, friends! We thought we’d take a quick break from our Friday Links to present to you: Put a Scarf on it, Part Deux. I bought this dress for my birthday, and had so much fun in it I had to break it out again for our holiday party. The high-low hemline was flirty and festive, and paired with my red lipstick, I was ready to roll. As previously posted, we made our way around town in our fancy holiday outfits, scarves in tow. We’re New England girls, we just love our scarves…

*Btw, I just want to give a little shoutout to those Old Navy heels. I usually have issues with heels, and these are extremely comfortable and so affordable!

Happy Monday everyone! NYE is right around the corner, and after our outfit guide last week, it was fun picking out something sassy to wear! Of course my plans have now changed and this sparkly number will be far too formal, so I’m going to be wearing something more along the lines of our house party pick. This outfit embodies our love of mixing casual and glam with a little vintage. The ampersand earrings were a Christmas prezzie from Reg, and as a designer they are perfect for me – I love them! We also want to give a little shout out to our families for getting us both new DSLRs for Christmas (camera twins)! This was our first shoot with the amazing Canon Rebel T3i and we’re so excited to see what else we can do with them! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
