Autumn Adventure - Upstate Leaf Peeping

Posted by on

We took a weekend trip upstate! Follow our adventure!

Fueled up and ready to go - we packed our favorite essentials: flannel, favorite jeans, sunglasses, a cross body bag and a good book.



 First stop: Kingston, NY! Quaint shops, locally produced goods, and delicious food! Check, check and check! 

The cabin we were staying in was completely off the we treated ourselves to a yummy dinner at Kovo with free wifi, and caught up on emails and entered the days orders from stores in New Paltz, and Saugerties!


Early the next morning we were lucky enough to spend time with the lovely Mary Vaughn; owner of Hudson Clothier, and proud carrier of Crystalyn Kae handbags! 

Hudson Clothier exclusively celebrates American manufacturing. The shop focuses on day to day necessities that carry individuality, make life comfortable and promote functionality.

 Spotted! We were so excited to see the Metier Totes cuddled up on a shelf at Hudson Clothier. To this day, nothing that compares to seeing our bags in the wild!


Quiet nights in the cabin...Nothing quite beats late night sketching, paired with @graft local cider and pumpkin seeds!

Leafy inside and out!

After long days on the road, it was always nice to come back to a relaxing spot to admire the beauty of the fall folliage! 

My trusty road-trip companion: the Troubadour Tote, fit my laptop, linesheets, snacks, makeup bag and notebook with ease.
