Some of our favorite things to do include getting breakfast at The Black Dog, seeing…

Birthday feelings & the best romper I’ve ever owned…

There’s only 3 days left in my life as a 27-year-old and I must admit, these late twenties are MUCH easier than the early twenties, but also (in my opinion) much more strategic. my dad told me this year on his birthday that being in your 50’s feels like the 2nd half of a run. The first half is tough, and you try to find…

monogram and sparkle in Marthas Vineyard ♥

SFD, that’s me. Kate…

dream pink coat.

lately, colors and i have been going through somewhat of a rough patch. when i started this blog, i would wear every color (like here, here and here), but somewhere along the way i began to stick to mustard yellows, browns, navy blues and reds… those are my main four these days. BUT color is fun! so i jumped at the chance to own a…

vintage overalls on the vineyard.

there’s this one street in marthas vineyard behind my parents house that i see when i close my eyes and am in a meditative state. on days when i am really tired, or extraordinarily relaxed i can see myself walking toward the sunshine on this particular street and it is later in the day. I am passing the overflowing pink flowers and the white picket…

I took a yoga class this morning with my mom, matt and our friend cody. it was in this beautiful barn that overlooked a field, with the windows open and the breeze filling the room throughout the class. we could even hear birds chirping the whole time! at the end of class, the instructor read us a poem. it really connected to how i am…

my day of birth ❤

it’s true, today i turn 25. i have to admit something… this is the first birthday that i dreaded. i’m not going to lie, a few tears were even shed. i am not one of those people who thinks “wow i am SO old,” because i am not. my “sort of sadness” stems from my own romanticized version of life  where things just stay the…
