Happy Friday! What I love most about living in New England is the variety of the terrain and proximity to my favorite destinations (Nantucket, White Mountains, Kennebunkport). Almost everything is three hours away or less. I love packing up my car and taking a short road trip for a weekend getaway. The best trips are always planned last minute. 

Barrington Gifts makes a beautiful line of bags perfect for weekend getaways, beach days, and day trips. The weekender bag is the perfect size to fit everything I need.  While agonizing over Mother's Day gifts this year I couldn't help but think how perfect one of these bags would be for my mother. Every bag is customizable. Customers can choose their favorite pattern from the site and personalize the bag with a monogram. Personalized gifts always earn extra points.

Seasons Change









This weekend I took my Spring clothes out of storage and finally organized my closet. Before this it was a mess. I had a hard time trying to find anything and it was frustrating trying to put together outfits in the morning. I'm almost always in a rush as I live by the five more minutes sleep rule once the alarm goes off. In case you were wondering, five more minutes almost always turns into a half hour. Since I pretty much always wear navy, some shade of blue, or white I wanted to highlight this section of my closet. I'm drawn to the color blue and all of my recent purchases reflect this.

While my closet screams Spring, Rhode Island still feels very much like winter. I tend to buy all my Spring/Summer clothes now in fear that my favorite pieces will disappear in stores by the time I actually can/want to wear them. I both love and hate that warm weather clothes are introduced in January. Here are some of my must have pieces this season. A few of these are already in my closet.
