People often ask me what there is to do in Vermont over the summer. Many know northern Vermont as a winter playground in the cooler months. After all, skiing is what brought my husband and I here years ago. Well, beyond the hiking, river swimming, craft beer tasting, and outdoor concerts, you can add blueberry picking to the list. This pick your own blueberry farm is only a short drive from downtown Stowe, accessed by a windy dirt road reminiscent of a fairytale forest.
Speaking of fairytales, this red corduroy cape from Tortoise and the Hare seems as if it has jumped out of the pages of a favorite bedtime story. Not all reds are created equal and this one is divine. It is the same color as the barns here in Vermont, a wonderful muted red that pairs well with everything.
If you're looking for the perfect transitional piece for Fall, this should be at the top of your list. The cape is lined with a soft bamboo fleece that is oh so cozy. I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again, these pieces are cut to perfection.
Oh Willaby how we love thee! After years of buying leggings in every color and length for Elise I was so excited to find a pair of summer pants that weren't skin tight and had the perfect amount of slouch. The cotton is airy and soft and looks incredible wash after wash. I adore everything this brand stands for and their commitment to high quality, ethically produced items. Check out their story here and swoon over their new fall pieces.
