When looking back at the last months (or even the last year), the campaigns I’ve been working on mostly led me to summerly destinations and even though summer is my favorite season, I started to miss autumn. When a project with H&M brought me to LA, I decided to make a quick stock in Vermont to capture some autumn moments.
Alex and I flew to Boston and took a car to head North. I’ve always wanted to see the beautiful colors of fall foliage and after researching for quite a while, I decided that Manchester in Vermont might be the perfect place to inhale autumn. It’s really difficult to catch the peak of the colorful leafs but we were lucky and arrived just a few days late which means that fall foliage was still super beautiful. The weather was a little unpredictable (pretty typical for autumn!) and during our five day stay we experienced everything from thunder and rain to warm sunny weather with temperatures up to 20 degrees. For my trip I packed lots of Tory Burch pieces (Isn’t the bow logo blouse so Gossip Girl!?), flowerly dresses, cozy jackets and boots! My favorite boots this season are colorful suede ones, black overknees and my all time favorites: Balenciaga Ceinture! The Ceinture boots are sold out most of the time but at the moment you can shop them in four colors: here!
During the last two years I was so lucky to make really good friends in the blogosphere and one of my closest friends, Michelle, decided to visit Alex and me for a day which was so much fun! We were lucky and during the day she was with us we had the most beautiful weather! We ended up taking the car and explored all the beautiful corners around Vermont!
Vermont offers so much, especially during fall season. We visited pumpkin patches, ate apple cider donuts, sat next to the fire place and watched Stranger Things, had a picnic at a small lake and spent so much time just soaking in the beautiful autumn colors. The first nights we stayed at the Equinox hotel and afterwards we headed to the Taconic hotel, which ended up being my favorite! It had a really good value for money and was super charming. We had a fire place in our room, a cozy bathtub and I loved sitting next to the fireplace or in one of the swing chairs on the hotel patio. I tried to capture as much as possible and I hope you like to see a little more autumn here. Somehow I have to admit that autumn always puts me in the mood for Christmas season – I can’t wait for even cozier days.:) xx Leonie
