I recently visited Gillette Castle with my family. Built in 1914 by American actor, William Gillette, the castle and estate is now a state park with amazing views of the Connecticut River and magical ponds and forests that make up the grounds. We had a lot of fun exploring the place and taking photos of each other.
This vintage, black velvet sequined jacket is a favorite find of mine. A few years ago, my Dad and I went to Talladega for the races and had stumbled upon a fantastic antique store in Atlanta called Kudzu Antiques + Modern. They have a bunch of vintage clothing and other cool stuff. We bought some Christmas presents and I spotted this jacket. On this autumn day, I paired it with Anthropologie jeans from last year and old pair of Michael Kors boots.
The fall season in Connecticut is a beautiful sight and we had a lot of fun playing around.
