Upstate

Elizabeth McKay sweater

This weekend, Anel and I headed upstate with a group of friends for an idillic fall weekend of antiquing, red-wine drinking, and chatting by the fire with hot toddies.

Over the summer, we rented a house with 3 other couples and Victoria’s Frenchie, Lucy, (recap here) and had so much fun that we decided to do it again this season. We plan to go back up in the spring as well. I am hoping that this is a tradition that stays for years.

We only left the big cozy house a handful of times- to go antiquing and to a brewery for lunch and for an incredible Italian dinner on Saturday night. It was so nice to be in the company of friends that we’re close enough to where we could all sit in our “comfy clothes” (aka PJs) by the fire all weekend.

I somehow pulled this look together for a few hours as we ventured back into reality. I recently discovered preppy Elizabeth McKay and got this gorgeous cream cashmere sweater for the trip. They’ve generously given all Lemon Stripes readers 25% off their entire site this week with code LEMONSTRIPES.
