There are times when living and working in the big city can really wear a girl down. Sometimes you just have to get in your car, roll down the windows and head somewhere where the air is clean, the sky is big and the only traffic is a herd of cows crossing the road.
For me, that place is my hometown of Warrenton, VA, a charming little town about 45 minutes (and a millions miles) west of D.C. Driving down the winding country roads is my stress relief. As the city fades in my rearview mirror, a sense of relaxation that can’t be found at the fanciest spa or yoga retreat washes over me. Warrenton is part of my heart and I am so blessed to have spent my formative years in such a beautiful part of our country.
When I think of fall, I think of gold and auburn foliage, horses, wineries and, of course, plaid. When we teamed up with local boutique South Moon Under to style a shoot highlighting our favorite fall styles, I couldn’t wait to head to my perfect location. Michelle and I chose plaid as our focal point and created autumn looks that let our personal styles shine through. Our styles fluctuate according to our mood or the event we are attending—but when we head out to the country for a day of vineyard hopping, we are exactly in sync, and these are our perfect outfits. The pieces we chose are relaxed, comfortable, on-trend and fit in perfectly with the rolling farmland, a generous pour of Norton and our relaxed moods. Cheers to VA and Cheers to Fall!
