Summer (teen) packing list … destination Cape Cod

Cape Cod, packing list

Cape Cod is the summer destination for many people living on the east coast and millions of visitors from around the world. Recently, Hannah was invited to go on a trip to Cape Cod.  This will be her first long trip away from home without us.  Our little girl is growing up and seeing her stepping out, be more independent, and making decisions is exciting.  For the trip she wanted to pack everything in one suitcase, enough basic clothes for 8-10 days and like most teens, still look cute and fashionable.

Christmas  favorite things

A little dusting of snow on the ground,
temperature in the 20s and 30s,
the warmth from the wood stove,
Christmas decorations in the house,
and the sounds of Christmas music…
what a nice start to the season,
or as Bing Crosby would sing it…

“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!”

Céline Fall 2014 Collection

Celine Fall:Winter 2014 Collection

 The colors of Fall

Céline Fall 2014 collection is simple, bold, and slightly edgy.
The Creative Director, Phoebe Philo, brought a little bit of the retro 1930’s feel with a modern minimal look to the collection.   The style is feminine with subtle masculine elements.  The statement is in the details and accessories;  adding bold simple jewelry, large stitch work, prints, contrasting colors and textures.
