A Trip to Sagamore Hill

What does one wear to the former house of a former president in the beginning of winter? For a visit to Teddy Roosevelt's home at Sagamore Hill - now a national park, I decided to debut some new items I've been excited about, without being too over-the-top—don't want to scare the locals in Oyster Bay. I loved how the metallic sheen of this belt played off the gold in the jacket without overpowering. 

Neutral layers balanced my less neutral hues and prints, plus they were totally weather appropriate.

A sensible bag kept me grounded even with a bit of lift from the highest heels in my closet! 

I've been envisioning wearing these shoes with these pants before owning either. I have to say, I'm pretty happy with the results.

Another satisfying day trip...

But I'm ready to get back to Brooklyn.
