Newburyport is a seaside town about an hour north of Boston, with beautiful old homes, and a thriving downtown full of independent businesses, and a bustling organic and foodie scene.  If you are in the area, please go to Colby Farm; they have a great farmstand!

I am already thinking about my next line of shoes, and a museum is a fantastic place to find color inspiration.

I think the last is the winner!  There is a nice balance of neutrals & colors, darks and lights.

Being away from Boston made me realize how great a city it is!  It’s a fairly small city which makes it very manageable…I’ve been walking almost everywhere, and there is almost no place within the city that can’t be reached in under one hour’s walk.  After living in southern China, the factory capital of the world, I also appreciate a blue sky more & more.  The first day I was back, I kept exclaiming, “Wow, would you look at the sky today?!?!  It’s like a painting!”   A friend is in town visiting, so i played tour guide today.
