North Country

I could not be happier in our new ‘hood and look forward to exploring and visiting friends who also live in the Hudson Valley. Being able to hike during COVID has been a mental lifesaver and I love the Upstate vibe. In a nod to north country style, I’ve been pulling out all of my Fair Isle and plaid pieces to wear over the holidays.

Book, mittens, head kerchief, skirt, boots, lip balm.

  • I think upstate NY is a great place to live. I just bought the Sorel boots in the honest beige color. Selling out quickly in that shade.

  • This is all so perfect for Upstate! I’m in love with living in the Hudson Valley and being surrounded by nature. These boots are exactly what I’ve been looking for and you know how I feel about a head scarf! xoxo, Heidi Heidi Wynne

  • Great post Preston. Do you still have/use your Eddie Bauer K6 boots? I bought them per your recommendation but unfortunately received a defective pair and they went back. I can no longer find them in black … might need to give the Sorel’s a try.

  • I love the Eddie Bauer K6 boots, the low profile suits me.

  • Love the Norwegian-style mittens! (I also like Latvian ones-so warm). I have 2 long pleated plaid skirts in my closet. They might now be viewed as vintage, but I have always loved them. Great to know that these are in style again. I will wear.
    And, for everyday out and about boots, I love Bundstones. Weatherproof, tread soles, and very comfortable.

  • I love this look and I live in London! Stompy hiking boots are all I wear on my feet, right now. Happy Holidays and Happy New Home, Preston x
