Hi everyone-hope you had a great weekend. We had a relaxing and lovely time celebrating our Anniversary at Keswick Hall at Monticello and exploring Charlottesville VA. The area is so scenic and beautiful and full of history including Thomas Jefferson's Monticello and the University of Virginia.  After spending the weekend at Keswick Hall, finishing up The Paris Wife , and starting Season 1 of Downton Abbey last week, I feel surrounded and inspired by American {and European} history. Also on the way home from Keswick Hall Aneesh and I had a long conversation about Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill and other amazing historical figures so now I am really inspired to read this and this next. 

Ok back to fashion and style I have also been inspired by street style photos like this one. Not only is this is an all black look {which I adore} but I love the combination of ankle boots and a mini skirt. It's a great outfit idea for this transitional weather we are experiencing at the moment. Also these ankle boots I am wearing are now on sale at Madewell so grab them before they're gone! They are comfortable, stylish, and great for fall.
