So last month we went up to the ski house. It was a dual purpose trip. We attended the Annual Oktoberfest Festival at Mt. Snow and the house got prepped for the winter months ahead. Wood for the fireplace and the wood burning stove was stacked higher than I am tall. (Now that’s high).

The festival was fun but even more enjoyable, taking in the New England fall foliage. Yes, the leaves on the weekend of October 10th were already changing. Here in New York City, not so much. Vermont foliage is way ahead of many parts of the Northeast area. Going up to the house at this time of year, the views never get old.

That being said, one must dress accordingly for the crisp cool air. It was the perfect time to pack a few new sweaters. This is one of my favorite new knits for the fall/winter season. Cozy and cute. Sweater: Here at JCrew (now on sale) | Tank: Forever21 | Jeans: Ernest Sewn | Bag: Louis Vuitton Musette | Shoes: Here at Stubbs and Wootton | Necklace: Bauble Bar | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Bracelet: David Yurman | Ring: David Yurman I just adore this crossbody bag. I purchased this bag back in the fall of 2008, long before crossbody bags were trendy. The Musette came in several different sizes but I got the largest one. Measuring at 12.5″ x 14″, it’s the perfect size bag. I can fit my iPad in there as well as my everyday item. This bag 7 years ago and is still in great condition. As with all Louis Vuitton products, it’s withstood the test of time. The great thing about this bag, it’s no longer in production. It seems like only a few people purchased this bag. Fortunately I get to walk around New York City with a bag no one else is carrying. Isn’t that refreshing? Yes it is! Is it just me or are you guys sick of seeing the LV Neverfull Tote. I most certainly am. ( I think I saw a homeless lady carrying one the other day).
