Our Fall Road Trip & Things to Do in the Berkshires

A few weeks ago Will and I went on a road trip to the Berskshires, in western Massachusetts, for my birthday weekend. Just before my birthday, we celebrated Liam's first birthday. So, it felt like an extra good time to celebrate getting through that first year of parenthood and have some time for just the two of us. I'm so grateful to my mom and aunt who watched Liam that weekend - it truly was the best gift! Our road trip into the Berkshires felt like a trip back in time. You know the time.. when people didn’t have phones attached to their bodies at all times. The Berkshires or “the shire” as locals call it, it is a place to come relax and enjoy nature. And while you can visit year round, going in the fall seemed like the perfect time since New England is known for their fall foliage. We spent a good part of our road trip taking it easy and relaxing, so I wasn't surprised that we didn't get to everything on my list of things to do in the Berkshires. Since I would like to go back eventually, and some of you shared some recommendations, I wanted to share all the details with you.

I'm sharing a mix of trendy and classic pieces that will elevate your fall wardrobe this year. And, I'm giving you options to splurge and save, so you can find something that works for your budget.
