This past weekend I was in Chicago visiting my (adorable) 9 week old niece, Claire. We were planning on doing a phot-oshoot, but it ended up raining. However, I have the below photos from the previous weekend in the Catskills! It was a perfect, gorgeous fall weekend there. Every autumn, my friends Steve, Nic, and Helene travel there for a fall foliage weekend. We hike, carve pumpkins, eat at Betty’s diner, and relax. Steve’s dad is a vet, and this year we got to see some teeny tiny baby piglets and a two-day old calf. The weather was perfect for me to wear my new checkered cape poncho (that’s a mouthful!). This cape poncho is so easy to wear and you can throw it over anything- I sometimes wear it over yoga pants! It immediately makes you look pulled together and elegant. I paired it with white skinny jeans that I have gotten so much use out of, and I wear white jeans well after Labor Day. These riding boots were on my wish list for years. They are Steve Madden “Rex” boots, and I fell in love with them because of the exposed red zipper. A tall pair of riding style boots are a closet staple for fall weather.
Enjoy the beautiful fall foliage and the polished autumn look!
