Pacific Northwest Is Best: Visit Whidbey Island, Chuckanut Drive, Ruby Beach, Seattle

Ocean Shores, Washington A week and a half in Washington State was one long sweet, surreal day dream. Our first stop at Ocean Shores unexpectedly introduced us to equine friends: Maggie and Milly. After an afternoon on the beach we were off to Olympic National Forest and idyllic Lake Quinalt for the best salmon nachos in the world. What to pack: Ocean Shores Thrifted Patagonia M Stand Up Short (Also here) Thrifted wide-brim hat (similar on sale at Nordstrom and Amazon) Ray-Ban Classic Aviators in grey-green and gold H by Hudson “Horrigan” Booties (Sizing notes) Bandana (Nordstrom) Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park Next up: The Ruby Beach coast along Washington’s Olympic National Park, which is impossibly expansive and remarkably welcoming. At once you feel tiny, humbled, yet also as if you’re coming home, surrounded by a cathedral of ancient trees, rugged bluffs, and icy tidal pools. It’s the sort of place meant for basking in the warm sun, exploring secret caves, and tumbling over driftwood to unearth little sea creatures. Photo by Caroline Walker Evans …

What To Wear: Light Hiking, City E-Biking, Outdoor Exploring

Labor Day means heading north for a weekend at Big Canoe to share home cooking and football over campfires and Georgia beer with family. And at last… riding boots! Have a wonderful weekend, y’all. Frye Paige Boots (on sale). Bespoke bag designed in collaboration with the wonderful Andover Trask. Quartz necklace from Le Fortune (similar on Etsy). Michael Kors Runway watch. Thrifted Madewell Alley Jeans (true to size), LOFT space dye tee, Ralph Lauren fishing vest. Vintage Ann Taylor belt.   Pruning the Roses Sep 13, 2014 The other day I was on our back deck with a cup of coffee when I came eye to eye with one brave little squirrel. Paws covered in peat, she paid me little mind, disregarding the sunshine and the wind in the trees alike as that walnut-sized brain seemed to cry out “Winter, winter, winter!”. We’re not so different there. Lately I’ve kept busy stocking up and storing away, following that seasonal instinct to squirrel away the seeds of ideas and projects as the weather starts to cool …

Key Piece: Everlane Seed Stitch Sweater

Featherweight and so soft, Everlane’s cotton and cashmere raglan works equally well as a summer staple as it does a layering piece for cooler weather. In keeping with the nothing new campaign, I waited until a size small showed up on eBay and have since paired it with office and weekend wear alike. I’m nearly as fond of the delicate seed stitching, high-low silhouette, and hemmed shoulders as I am of Everlane’s transparent manufacturing practices. A history of evil eye charms and how to crown yourself with a bracelet. And in case you missed it, how to French cuff pants. Outfits featuring this sweater here. /// Always $60 at Everlane /// SIZE Wearing a small. I am 5’7″ and measure 32-24-32″. FIT This sweater fits true to size. A small fits me well and has a slouchy, relaxed fit. If you’re looking for a tailored, tighter fit, order down one size. REVIEW Featherweight and so, super soft – you’ll want to hand wash this or have it dry cleaned. This is also so lightweight that …

A simpler wardrobe: Summer outfits (this is a long post)

These are outfits I wore the first summer after I set out to whittle down my wardrobe. Here’s what the fall and winter and spring before looked like. Here’s what my wardrobe looks like nowadays. And here’s an interview on my year of buying nothing new. SCAD Museum of Art Apr 29, 2014 “I recall my fleeting instants in Savannah as the taste of a cup charged to the brim.” -Henry James For me Savannah, Georgia is like an old friend: Eternally warm and at the ready for a leisurely walk, ever armed with good stories and a cool gin and tonic. It’s been two summers too long since we last visited, and this past weekend Mr. Ralston and I had a few hours to stroll the cobblestone streets. Favorites: SCAD Museum of Art  I’m in love with everything about this museum, from the lake-drenched c-prints and Boschian collages, to the antebellum architectural heritage and clean concrete expansion, to the pared down landscaping and the illy issimo miscela espresso in the petite museum café. Leopold’s …
