In case somehow you stumbled upon this post, and don’t follow along with me on instagram, here are a few snapshots of what I have been up to / posting about lately over on IG.
We kicked off September at our favorite spot, The Homestead, as one last hurrah for summer before John went back to school! We love being able to take weekend trips during the summer and we had to send summer out in style, as the only travel we will be doing in the next few months will be/has been for John’s running. You guys know we love our time at the Homestead and this time was no different.
Speaking of traveling for John’s running…. we traveled up to Philadelphia a few weeks ago for John to run a half marathon! The night before the race, we stayed in the brand new Four Seasons at the new Comcast Center, and it was a total dream. You can’t beat the service, amenities, hospitality and overall ambiance at Four Seasons Hotels, and this one was no different. Our room was all the way up on the 52nd floor, with floor to ceiling walls over looking the entire city. I have never seen anything like it! I am working on a full post about the hotel and our experience at the spa, but it’s safe to say it’s one of our favorite stays so far 🙂
We finally got to get out onto John’s parent’s sailboat, Grace, a few weeks ago and it was the perfect day! He keeps his boat down in Topping, and we motored out to where the Rappahannock meets the Bay, put up the sails, and cruised around for a couple of hours. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed having John’s dad show us the ropes on the boat. We are looking forward to many, many more days sailing on Grace with the Piersol’s!

I ran a giveaway with Brook & York on my instagram last month, and even if you didn’t win, you should check out my favorite pieces! I love my name necklace and you can also find monograms, initials and other great pieces for making a statement or layering.
I talked about always wearing mismatched socks last week & I would LOVE to know if you are a must-always-match your socks or if you’re like me! Drop a note in the comments below 🙂 Also, see my post about my fall uniform, including my funky socks here.
I threw it back to a photo from our stay at Four Seasons at the Surf Club before we went to Philly! I’m not sure why this was one of my favorite photos from the trip, but it was. It’s my current Facebook picture actually….. The dress was a stunner, Badgley Mischka from Rent the Runway. I always had a fine experience with RTR, but it has been under some serious scrutiny lately! What have your experiences been like?
We spent the weekend down in Deltaville with some of our best friends and it was the perfect getaway. Hunter’s house in Deltaville has been a favorite weekend trip for years now, but it had been a few years since we got to go down there. There’s nothing like sleeping in the day bed, watching the sunset and the sunrise, eating oysters and taking a little bit of time to “unplug.” See the video I took at sunset, creating this photo HERE.

I am SOO READY for fall to be in full swing! I think this week is the week, but won’t hold my breath…. I styled 4 looks over on IG TV and here on the blog that I am excited to wear once the temperatures drop. I am especially ready to rock my favorite new sweater, pictured above, from Urban Outfitters. As cliche as it sounds, I just love sweater weather. See the full post HERE.
I didn’t even realize how much we crammed into the month of September before I started writing this post! SHEESH. I Even started it out by saying we wouldn’t be doing any non-running related travel…. I guess that was wrong!
Such a fun, activity-packed September!
So many cute photos girl! That one of you in front of the sunset is just beautiful!
I LOVE Philadelphia and would love to stay at the Comcast Center. Didn’t know they had a hotel in there!
You had such a fun month! The day on the sailboat looks like so much fun.
Such a fun month!! How awesome you got to sail aboard their boat, looks so dreamy and beautiful!
cute & little
Your boots are too freaking cool! And I love them with the mismatched socks. You’re totally rocking the look!

Oh my gosh I love all of the styles of these photos! It looks like you had a jam packed September!
I’m literally obsessed with those snake booties – they’re so chic! Sounds like you guys had a great month of travel, the new Four Seasons sounds gorgeous!
September seems to have done you well, and I hope October is the same – if not better! I love your cute travel looks and the excitement over your wardrobe for autumn. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for the next month!
Looks like you had an amazing month! I’d love to stay at that hotel in Philly – what an amazing view of the city!
