In search of Vineyard Chic

Before I left for Martha's Vineyard I thought it might be fun to do a post on Vineyard chic. So as soon as I stepped off the ferry I started my search.

I couldn't exactly explain Vineyard chic but I would know it if I saw it. So here are some of the candidates.

The first photo was taken outside of Giordano's restaurant. We had just arrived on the Vineyard and we were starving. We had lobster rolls. I spied this woman outside the restaurant, a fellow shutterbug. I like the hat and the skirt and a crisp white tank is always in style on the Island.

A nice casual hairstyle, white shorts and black tee. Perfect! Casual but not sloppy.

Remember the little boy wth the cool hair in one of my prior posts? Well, this is his mom. Simple white cotton dress and straw hat. Lovely and practical for steamy summer days.

Here she is again. I just had to get a better look at the hat. She looked picture perfect sitting outside the Black Dog Tavern.

Here's a twist, winter hat with summer tank. Your ears just might get cold when the ocean breezes kick up.

So what's your opinion? Which one is the chicest?

Vineyard Chic - I love that! I will be keeping my eye out in town today for likely candidates too!

The chicest for me? I'd have to go with the first and third lady... I love their look :)
Definitely the woman with the hat and white cotton dress! I love the dress, it's totally me. I can't really rock a hat but it looks great on her!

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
