On day two of our Vermont trip we headed up to Woodstock, but not before a stop at the King Arthur Baking flagship store! I behaved and only bought a few different types of flour (bread, all purpose and Italian-style) and a new cambro dough rising bucket for when I want to see how much my dough has risen or brining something. I wanted more fun ingredients, but refrained for now. I still had a lot of things back home to use up first.

We walked around the Woodstock Green and took some photos and a Reel in front of the Woodstoock Inn, a very popular tourist spot. Then we took a little stroll around the town to Faulkner Park before heading to the Apples & Crafts Fair & Food Truck Festival where I spent too much money on things I didn't need, hah! Bought a super cute sheep ornament made from sheep wool from a local Woodstock farm and a ceramic tree with a black bear climbing up it. So adorable.

Since I haven't been taking new outfit photos lately I thought I would bring back an old blog series - Favorite Things - and feature some pieces I can't imagine living without.  These Miu Miu leopard sandals were one of my first designer splurges back in 2011. They were part of the Fall 2010 collection and I was low key obsessed for a while before I purchased them.

I first posted about them in October 2011 but had been in love since I saw them on Net-a-Porter at their full price of $795 - YIKES! Even before that blog post I had an eBay alert set up for months to find them. I finally found them in my size in November 2011 and splurged $400 (I think) on them. Still a crazy price to pay but every time I see them in my closet they bring me joy so I think it was worth it, even 9 years later.

They are brown and black leopard print calf hair sandals with a 6 inch heel and a 2 inch platform. Basically a dream for a short girl like me. I look SO TALL in them! Especially in super skinny jeans.  I used to wear them once a week when I was working in an office but since I started working from home in 2014 they've been more of an art piece in my closet brought out for special occasions.

Shop them:

I have been so "lazy" with my outfits this Winter. I try to come up with interesting looks utilizing different things in my cloet yet I always fall back to the jeans and sweater combo. It's not a bad thing but I'm feeling bored with my style. Definitely a pitfall of working from home. I don't have occasions to wear my "fun" clothes as much and then on the weekends I'm usually hanging at home, running errands or at my Grandma's for a few hours. Not peak blazer or fancy clothes wearing time. So I continue on with my winter uniform, cycling through old and new sweaters.

This time it's a sweater I've had for a LOOONG time - eight years - it's been on the blog quite a few times in varying degrees of "stylish." I used it to recreate a Michael Kors runway look in 2012 and rang in 2017 in London at the New Years Eve fireworks.

Also wearing my new J Brand jeans today! I expected them to be like my "super skinny" pair and tight to the legs but they were a little looser. Perhaps if I got the 26 they would've fit more like I imagined, but I was too lazy to go through the exchange process, especially because they might have sold out and I would've been out of luck. The dangers of sample sale sites.

Fisherman Sweater: Inis Crafts (Marshalls, shop more turtleneck sweaters), Jeans: J Brand 811 Mid Rise Skinny Leg Jean in Moral (shop more J Brand jeans), Boots: Miu Miu (Roundabout, shop more booties), Bag c/o Orox Leather Merces Petite (shop more crossbody bags), Earrings: Opals from my Grandma (shop more fine jewelry earrings)

I wore this a couple weekends ago to try out Place2Be in Hartford for brunch! I met up with other some fun Connecticut Food Bloggers where we proceeded to taste mimosas (I tried a wildberry one,) share out of a huge bathtub one foodie ordered and eat delicious brunch foods! I had to go for the The Morning Rooster Special, aka Chicken & Waffles! I'm not a huge fan of chicken and waffles with the bone on (I know it's traditional, but so hard to eat) but it was DELICIOUS.  Next time I think I'll try the Cinnamon Apple Pancakes or French Toast!

After brunch Christian picked me up and we headed to Heirloom Market to see what types of seeds they have for our garden NEXT year. We weren't early enough to start from seeds this time. Then we took these photos and got some ice cream at Main Street Creamery, YUMMM.

Jacket: LAUREN Ralph Lauren, Top: Zara, Jeans: Everlane "The High-Rise Skinny Jean" in Mid-Blue, Boots: Miu Miu (Roundabout), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Natural Selection Mini Messenger Bag' (Saks Fifth Avenue)
