welcome this is a farmhouse

It is rare that you will catch me in a pair of pants voluntarily: I am yet to discover the perfect pair of jeans and “jeggings” simply terrify me. So a pair of high waist pinstriped trousers will certainly suffice my sporadic craving for a pant outfit. Also, I usually opt for a skinnier cut thus these seem like a far stretch for me, but I love them so.

While driving, I stumbled upon this great farmhouse one which I have driven past a million times. It is set against gorgeous rolling hills and ripe gardens – so picturesque you might feel like you time-traveled to a different time and place. During my photo-op, the farmer working there caught me in the act and graciously insisted on giving me a tour of the amazing grounds (and an eggplant or two!). It turns out that this rather large plot of land is owned by the town and serves as a sanctuary for growing and selling organic vegetables as well as a classroom for the younger generations. This farm is undoubtedly an incredibly special place, one that I will be visiting more often.

  2. I am terrified of jeggings also! And who said jeans were comfortable? I totally disagree! I love the outfit, but the necklace is AWESOME! I can't believe you found Anthropologie at TJ Maxx! I am going to go scour ours now.

  20. I am always too afraid to try such overt clashing of prints, however somehow you manage to make it look incredibly chic ! The pattern on the shirt is delightful and I love it with the statement necklace.

    Great location too.
    As always, a huge fan of your blog!
