We are home!! It is soooo nice! What an amazing and lucky summer we had with all this travel. Martha’s Vineyard is one of my favorite places so of course it was such a pleasure to spend a month there avoiding the heat and photographing two big weddings up in the Northeast. Still, there is nothing quite like being home and we are looking forward to an extended stretch and a regular routine. Fall in Charleston is my favorite time, particularly October and November so if you are planning a visit, this is a great time to come!
The pumpkins were coming out on Martha’s Vineyard just as we were packing up to head home. It’s lovely how the Island gets quiet and hunkers down for the season. We are very much hoping to make it up for a weekend towards the end of October to see the leaves changing and to have more evenings by the fire. The weather was just beginning to turn, with room for cozy sweaters, jackets and jeans. I picked up this dress in town at Beach House (it’s $120 and I am in an XS because it runs “roomy” & they don’t have a site but they know which one it is if you call) knowing that it would be perfect for the end of summer heat down south but still have an autumnal feel to it because of the burgundy shade. I love button down dresses with tied waists — they’re always flattering and so easy to wear.
Of course one of our favorite farm stands had a fabulous display of organic beautiful gourd and pumpkins — very exotic! We admired them and are excited to get into the spirit now that we are back home. I’m also thrilled about some new items I have picked up, including these kilim shoes which are a favorite — more on them shortly!!!
