Who are you turning to for recipes to this spring?
Honestly, my sister is my greatest inspiration when it comes to being in the kitchen. She has a true gift, whereas I tend to be somewhat helpless unless I have a recipe to adhere to, lol. Anyway, I ask her for recipes almost weekly and believe her go-tos are @thepioneerwoman and @smittenkitchen.
Where are you shopping (online or in person) this spring?
For the Home: Always antique stores, estates sales, and my local Craigslist, which I swear by.
To Wear: @anthropologie and @jcrew are my go-tos for solid, Jackie Kennedy-inspired, East Coast fashion.
Who / What is your favorite or new go-to spring dress by and who/where is it from?
I am currently obsessed with the entire @hunterbellnyc dress collection.
Who is inspiring you these days?
• Movies from Hollywood’s “Golden Age,” for the glamour of their set designs, costumes, etc.... These will always and forever be my greatest source of inspo as a grandmillenial tastemaker. There is something about the glamour of that era I have always found intriguing; a glamour which even two World Wars couldn’t shake, in which there was a sense of morality, goodness, duty, and patriotism underlying every facet of society. It is these underlying values and spirit I hope we’ve managed to re-capture here at Tallwood, and these values and spirit that are the underpinning of any truly glamorous society.
• Tastemakers of the past such as Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy.
• Modern-day tastemakers such as Kate Middleton @kensingtonroyal, Alice Naylor-Leland @mrsalice, Brooke Giannetti @velvetandlinen, Mark Sikes @markdsikes,, and tooooo many others to name. Also always especially inspired by English and European pages on IG!!!
