home envy: hudson woods

I came across these homes on Pinterest and my jaw completely dropped. Stunning modern design in a beautiful natural setting? Sold sold sold.

Designed by Lang Architecture, Hudson Woods is a community of vacation homes for design-conscious New Yorkers. There are 26 homes total, all nestled in their own area of land and all built in a similar "glass-and-timber" style. The homes blend seamlessly into their surroundings through huge beautiful windows. After spending a few weekends in this area of New York state, I'd happily vacation in one of these! Now where do I sign up?

weekend moments

How was your weekend? We spent ours out east in the Hamptons + the North Fork. I had been out there before, but it was Grant's first time. We decided not to spend much time on the beach and instead explored every town on the island. It of course included a stop at Serena and Lily's Beach Market shop, where I picked up a couple Tatine candles. Another favorite of ours was Sag Harbor. I had never been before and loved how quaint it was (and less crowded than the Hamptons). We spent Saturday night driving through the North Fork and I fell in love with how peaceful it was. I'm already anxious to go back in the fall and spend an afternoon wine tasting at one of their many vineyards! I spent almost the entire weekend in my Heidi Merrick striped tee - it is seriously the best striped shirt I own. I cannot get over how fast summer is flying by and I wish it would slow down!

currently...

I saw this photo on Clare Vivier's instagram a few weeks ago and have been dreaming of this bag ever since. Add on a monogrammed tag and I think I've found the perfect fall bag.

I've been listening to a lot of podcasts recently and was pleasantly surprised to see that Kate from Wit & Delight was on a radio show recently. Kate is one of the smartest women I know and I loved getting to hear more from her. 

Lotta Nieminen is a graphic designer and illustrator whose work I've admired for a long time. Design*Sponge recently featured "A Day In the Life" with her and I was fascinated with getting a peek into her life.

AYR

A couple weeks ago, my friend Kristen and I stopped by the AYR showroom. We were both very interested in their clothing and wanted to see it and try it on in person. We had the best time chatting with their employees and both walked out with this amazing dress, smartly named The Everywhere Dress. I am usually not a dress person, and I have to say that I've been wearing this dress non-stop. It is incredibly soft and incredibly easy (a big requirement for a dress for me). Sorry in advance for wearing it every day!
