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.

Country Roads Lead Home

Swamp Meadow Covered Bridge in Foster, Rhode Island is one of my favorite spots in the state. I can’t make a trip home without at least driving under it a couple of times. It’s so nice to have a bit of New England charm so close to home. I just love covered bridges!


I am obsessed with the navy color of this plaid shirtdress. It pops against the red and the white in the print. How cute is the bow tie on the front?!? It lets you customize just how fitted it is and leaves you with the possibility of making a bow or another sort of knot. This dress even has pockets. Although I’m pretty short, I ordered the dress in a tall so it would be long enough and I’m so glad I did! The smaller the size, the shorter the hemline so getting a tall is absolutely crucial, even if you’re short like me. Because I was feeling extra, I paired the dress with a patent pair of point toe pumps. I got them a few years back and adore them; any time they even remotely match my outfit, I eagerly pull them out! Speaking of excited, Delila was extremely pumped to visit the bridge with us. The whole way there, I kept looking in my rearview and all I could see was her happy face. I took a picture and posted it on her Instagram, check it out here!

It’s Covered

I love covered bridges. They’re quaint and cute and are a rarity to find which makes them all the more special. The Arthur A. Smith Covered bridge in Northern Massachusetts has been on my list for quite a while and finally, I decided to make the trip up. It’s funny that this one spot was my destination when over the course of the road trip, I found many other wonderful spots that I never would’ve been able to plan going to. This bridge did not disappoint. It was adorable down to every detail, I’m obsessed with the lanterns inside of it! Even the creek under it was cute. The mountains in the background were just turning to orange and there was not a person in sight. This bridge really is in the middle of nowhere!


For my outfit, I paired this jacquard printed skirt (pockets!) with a crimson belle sleeved sweater (on sale!) and matching point toe flats. I love the fringe detailing on the shoes! My hunter boots also paired well with the look and were a bit more practical for exploring the creek below the bridge; I was surprised with how deep it was!

Autumn Mountain Majesty

The panoramic 360º view from Poet’s Seat Tower located in the Rocky Mountain Park of Greenfield, Massachusetts is absolutely stunning, especially when the leaves have been painted yellow, red and orange by autumn herself. The tower is extremely tall.  You start by climbing up various flights of stairs, each of which brings you to a new look out platform. If you look straight down, you will realize that the tower is perched on the edge of a literal cliff, and it’s a long way down. The final flight that takes you to the very top is a spiral staircase the winds you around, almost preparing you to look all around and take in the view. Straight ahead, off the cliff, is the town of Greenfield and in every other direction, you see nothing but foliage covered mountains, pierced only by the occasional steeple. A big, beautiful American flag blows in the wind on top of the tower. The Poet’s Seat Tower is a great lookout point that you can drive right up to, no hiking necessary. Even the parking lot is scenic!IMG_0779IMG_0786IMG_0780IMG_0782IMG_0778IMG_0642IMG_0781IMG_0777IMG_0801

For my outfit, I paired bean boots with a long sleeve lace top and a button front corduroy skirt. Because it was a warmer fall day, I could get away with wearing the skirt on its own but was still happy to be wearing long sleeves. I love how the brown color of the corduroy looked against the deep blue and how the two textures contrasted against one another. All the pieces I’m wearing with the exception of my boots are from past seasons but I linked some similar options below.

While road tripping around Northern Massachusetts over fall break, my parents and I ran into a local at a covered bridge who recommended that we drive a few minutes down the road to see The Bridge of Flowers. We didn’t really know what to expect, and due to our lack of cell reception couldn’t look it up, but once we arrived, we were blown away. This place is so beautiful it’s hard to believe it’s real! Whoever had the idea to turn a bridge into a beautiful garden must have been a wonderfully creative person. The fall dahlias were in full bloom and bees were happily buzzing around. As golden hour descended, the foliage covering the mountains ahead was illuminated by the setting sun as an American flag patriotically fluttered in the wind. The bridge of flowers is definitely on my list of places to go back to. If you ever find yourself near the Deerfield River in Shelburne Falls, make sure you head to 22 Water Street and check out this bridge!
