Wandering Through Wickford

Last weekend, I was home and pleasantly surprised with a day of balmy 50 degree weather which was more than welcome after the 4 degree temperatures I was forced to brave over Christmas vacation. It was so nice not to need a coat or sweater. Instead, I wore a long sleeve white t-shirt that had a scalloped neckline, jeans and a silk scarf around my neck. To style the scarf, I first folded it in half to look like a large isosceles triangle before folding the point in first until I was left with a long horizontal strip that I was able to tie around my neck off to the side in a double knot.

Cupid’s Caboose

This outfit made me feel a valentine. From the scallops on my skirt to the ruffle on my sweater to the red and pink colors to the pearl around my neck, everything about this look screams “IT’S VALENTINES DAY!” This old caboose was so fun to climb on and explore, despite the signs requesting that I stay off. It even matched my outfit! While I think it’s the perfect Valentine’s ensemble, I’ll probably spend actual Valentines Day, or Ash Wednesday, in pajamas with the exception of the few hours I have to go to mass and work, which is more than alright since I already got to feel like a cupid on this caboose.

Sitting On The Skyline

I am forever going to be obsessed with this view, made even better by the warm weather we’ve been having lately. I can’t believe I’m wearing a skirt with no tights and no coat in January! While both my top and bottoms have long since sold out, it is a classic and cute look that can be easily recreated. I love cricket sweaters and while I couldn’t find an exact duplicate to link, the one I’m wearing is Ralph Lauren and was purchased for a very low price at T.J. Maxx.

Castle On The Hill

Bancroft Tower in Worcester, Massachusetts is not something you’d expect to see just seconds out of a city. The tiny neighborhood surrounding it is quaint and peaceful. How beautiful are all the stones on the tower!? I can’t believe how tall it is. The view from the base of the castle was expansive; I can only imagine what the view would be like from the top! Even Delila was excited to get out of the car and explore the ground surrounding the tower. She seemed disappointed when she realized the gates were locked and she could not go up to explore the entirety of the tower.

Around Ashuelot

Another stop on my New Hampshire covered bridge tour and probably the longest covered bridge I’ve ever driven over, the Ashuelot covered bridge located in the town of, you guessed it, Ashuelot, is a site to see, especially when covered in snow. I’d never seen a white covered bridge before and can only help but wonder how often it needs to be cleaned and repainted. To match the white body and red trim of the bridge, I paired white jeans with a red flannel and tartan heels. I’m not sure what it is with me wearing heels in the snow lately instead of my trusty bean boots, but it seems to be working. To date, I have zero slip-and-falls (knock on wood).

Coombs Covered Bridge

I’m obsessed with covered bridges and am always on the hunt for new ones to visit. In the fall, I took a road trip to a covered bridge and some other spots in Northern Massachusetts and decided to take another this past weekend despite the 9 degree temperatures. This time, I headed up to New Hampshire, stopping in Worcester on the way, and visited three covered bridges, one of them being Coombs Covered Bridge. This bridge was the plainest and most natural looking. There were some holes in the side which allowed for a lookout to the view of the partially frozen river underneath the backdrop of a mountain. It looked adorable covered in snow that had come from the bomb cyclone just days earlier.

I love wearing pink all year round and this sweater is the perfect piece to brighten a dreary winter day. When layered with a white button down, a furry leopard vest, hot pink hat and white leather booties, I almost forgot how cold it was outside. Even my water bottle from the Lilly Pulitzer x Swell collaboration matched. I’m so glad my mom remembered the day of the launch as they sold out online in about twenty minutes. While I was the one who reminded her the night before, the morning they were released, I was happily riding and adorable printed water bottles were the last things on my mind. I feel so much more put together when I am completely coordinated, down to the very last detail of my water bottle.
