And just like that, the Island is quiet and a cooler breeze has picked up. The towns have cleared out after the holiday weekend, shops and cafes are closing for the season, and the house feels particularly still without my father’s family and the dog, Buster. It is still blissful weather and it was lovely to be able to throw on an easy, light cashmere sweater over my dress today on our afternoon work break walk around town.
I have talked about my love for sweaters here before and I will say again that they are my absolute favorite — nothing beats a cozy, comforting sweater. I collect light cashmere sweaters which are easy to layer under heavier cardigans and coats, but also make for the best transitional pieces, especially when they are in these pastel hues of soft lavender, blush, cream and baby blue (see some selects at the bottom of the post). I found this one last weekend while I was snorkeling around shops with my cousin who came up for the holiday weekend. I love how soft it is, and that this looser cut would fit easily over a white button down— my fall uniform. I also favor a round neck over a v-neck — just personal preference.
It’s hard to resist capturing the last of the summer flowers on all of these beautiful houses in Edgartown. On our drive back to the house I could see the first leaves on the ground. We are off to Southampton, NY for a big wedding we are photographing this weekend and I have a feeling that when we get back, these gardens will look very different! Looking forward to documenting it all…xxx
