Welcome to Fall 2021. What a summer it’s been! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being with family and friends and feeling some sense of normalcy again. As fall approaches, I look forward to extending the season outdoors on the patio for as long as I possibly can. Thanks to al fresco everything, fall “transition” has a whole new meaning.
I’m feeling that first gentle nudge to freshen up my wardrobe, put away the flip flops, and lean into the season with a few curated additions to my wardrobe. When designing this fall’s line, I chose new textured fabrics, new prints, new yarns, and new colors to express the excitement and joy I feel for my very favorite season. I love cool crisp air, fall food, family holidays and yes, the clothing and accessories that come with the fall season. The possibilities are endless with layering options, travel friendly fabrics, super soft cozy yarns and gorgeous one-of-a-kind prints.
Several new Habitat fall designs were particularly inspired by local entrepreneur Barbara Jones, owner of Hearthstone Home in Needham Massachusetts, mother of four, gardener extraordinaire, animal lover and probably the most relaxed person I’ve ever met. Barbara is also the founder of Little Pink Houses, a company dedicated to finding older, architectural gems in Needham and restoring them to be beautiful homes that meet the demands of today’s families. One of the keys to her success was filling the homes she restored with unique furnishings to stage them before putting them on the market. As more and more people reached out to her to find pieces to achieve Barbara’s unique aesthetic, she decided to open Hearthstone Home, a Needham retail store bringing to together all her favorite things.
While searching for an interesting location for our fall photoshoot I mentioned how much I love Barbara’s home to my daughter. Turns out my daughter knew her through her friends in high school and Barbara enthusiastically agreed to let us shoot our fall collection at her beautifully restored historic home in Needham.
The setting complimented our Fall collection perfectly. The unique architecture and furnishings that only historical New England homes have was a delightful location for our photoshoot.
We send our thanks to the Jones family for allowing us onto their beautiful surroundings.
Enjoy the season!

I design my collection for real women leading real lives. We all want to look relevant and current, but in our own way, reflecting our own sense of self and style. While I’m guilty of pouring over the latest fashion magazines, I’m often thinking, “Who really wears that?”. I aim to enhance your style, not dictate it.
