• Fall Fashion: Foliage Color Palette

    Thank you so much to everyone who expressed such kind words after this week’s earlier post… it is so appreciated. Now, on a lighter note, because I have to keep the rest of this week light… I love scrolling through a new season’s fashion… Lately I have noticed that there are so many pieces that appeal to me that are the colors of Fall foliage. Not my typical color palette but all the beautiful warm tones make you think of pumpkin picking, apple cider and raking leaves. I love it all paired with denim, navy and ivory! Below find the pieces that I am loving in this foliage color palette!…

  • August Favorites…

    We were all over the place this month! A little bit of travel and sadly lots of fevers, infections and antibiotics!

  • Kearsley Lloyd on Sun Protection

    Sun protection in the hot summer months is crucial! Beach time, golf courses, tennis matches, amusement parks; we all spend so much time outside! I am so excited to have my incredibly talented Rhode Island friend, Kearsley Lloyd share her wisdom today on A Modern Housewife! Kearsley now lives full time in Bermuda (yes, my other favorite place!) and is a graphic designer and artist. She specializes in custom designs, branding and illustrations.

    Memorial Day weekend always has plenty of sales so if you need something it is a good time to pop into stores or scour the internet! The lovely company, Serena & Lily is having a 20% off sale!
