Happy Columbus Day

Fall is my favorite season and Columbus Day usually marks the beginning of that crisp autumn air and changing foliage. Taking my daughter to look at schools today is the perfect excuse to drive north and get a dose of classic New England.

Columbus DayThere is nothing quite like the northeast at this time of year. It is redolent of so much associated with quintessential American style. From the colorful scenery to the students on campus, it is inspiration to decades of fashion, film and literature. It conjures up images of those boys in Take Ivy

So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will cooperate with a little sun and cool enough temperatures that will warrant finally moving into a few fall favorites. To those of you who have the day off, enjoy the holiday!

  1. Oh that first photo made me swoon! I love autumn dearly and miss it here in this corner of Provence. The Alpilles and Camargue don’t have nearly enough trees for my taste. And it was still hot enough for linen shirts the other week!!!

    We are beginning to feel a nip in the air in NC, and I so welcome the change. Leaves are turning and football is in full swing. Hope you’re having a great start to your week!

  3. I hope you have a perfect fall day for your adventures. My husband went to prep school and college in New England, but we have yet to visit in the fall. It looks just stunning. Have fun and happy school hunting!
