I had such an amazing time visiting The Mount, Edith Wharton’s home in Lenox, Massachusetts. Edith was a fascinating lady. She was born in 1862 – a time when society discouraged women from achieving anything apart from marriage. Edith cast off any boundaries to become one of America’s greatest writers and the first woman awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. Her classics include The Age of Innocence, Ethan Frome, and The House of Mirth, as well as works on travel, architecture, gardens, and interior design. Talk about an inspirational woman!
Edith imagined her estate as a work of art. The design was informed by English, Italian, and French traditions tailored to the American countryside. The architecture, interior design, and gardens reflect the imagination of their creator.
Inspired by this elegant estate, I wanted to go for a sophisticated and chic look and went for a mostly all white outfit. I paired my boucle blazer (like this one) with a cool textured skirt by Banana Republic. I loved how the feminine lines of the blazer and Coach bag are balanced with the asymmetric skirt and laser cut heels. I don’t necessarily stick to the rule of one statement piece per look, but these Quay Australia sunglasses deserved the spotlight. They are so much fun and my new favorite. I finished off the outfit with a pair of diamond studs and thin silver rings (I love stacking rings, which I also wore with an all blue outfit).
