Make It Your Own Monday

Welcome back to Dovecote Style’s new blog series: Make It Your Own Monday!

Item of the Month: P. Taylor Shirts

The P. Taylor brand based in New York, provides classic button up shirts that provide style, function and fit in equal measure. Each handmade shirt is a blend of cotton and polyester or cotton and nylon for superb wearability.  The fabrics feel heavenly, travel perfectly and wash easily (machine-washable in cold water, hang to dry). With a rainbow of colors and styles to choose from, these shirts fit all body types.

Do not miss the opportunity to meet Priscilla Taylor herself at Dovecote Style’s P. Taylor Trunk Show on Saturday, January 24th and Sunday, January 25th. This will be your chance to see her entire line and pre-order for late Spring delivery.

Just in time from Resort 2015, we have this stunning look featuring our P. Taylor Kentucky shirt, a style that flatters every woman with a pretty silhouette and complimentary darting to give a great shape. We’ve accented the shirt with a seafoam and citron Suzi Roher scarf, hand-printed in Italy. We love the bold, graphic design and, as with all our Suzi Roher scarves, the incomparable softness which is perfect for every season. The white Miley pant from Equestrian Designs is refreshing and the carryall Castaway from Joanna Maxham makes for the ideal carry-on. Finish the look with delicately subtle gold jewelry courtesy of Robin Haley and you’re the picture of luxury! Jet off to the Bahamas or Jamaica in style.

For a day antiquing, we have this pretty outfit featuring the Boston shirt from P. Taylor. This essential makes a great base for any ensemble and is primed for lots of fun layers such as this striking Japanese scarf from Nuno and beautiful belt from Suzi Roher. The look is finished with that gorgeous Castaway handbag from Joanna Maxham in Paprika, shown here in its larger iteration, perfect for a more casual day look. We’ve added a pointy toe shoe with the slightest wedge from French Sole in gray and black and capped it off with a Wigens hat. For colder days, this hat has the cutest little ear flaps, too!

Second Year of the Winter Coffee Pecan Porter

When the temperature drops there are a few things that become necessities: scarves, hats, mittens, wool socks and my morning cup of coffee. The way a warm cup of coffee warms me up and awakens my senses prepares me for the activities of the day. Throughout the year, Fearrington Village is enveloped in that same aroma of freshly roasted coffee. In the winter the aroma is more powerful and even more welcoming. When I sense that smell I know our coffee roaster Julian Vargas is busy at work at... Full Post >

Wine for the Wintertime

As I'm sure you've noticed, it's a tad chilly out. A little wine can do wonders in helping to pass the time, anxiously awaiting the chance sighting of a little wintry precipitation. I mean, if its going to be this cold, we better get some snow out of it! Here are three cool bottles that we have featured and on display here at The Goat to help warm the spirits this Winter. DOMAINE DANIEL ET ETIENNE DEFAIX | CHABLIS:  Ridiculously rich, full bodied, concentrated yellow melon,... Full Post >

Littorai: Above the Best, In a World of Its Own

Let's just say it, there are a lot of wineries that claim that they are the best (in their region, of all producers, of a certain grape varietal, etc). The idea of "the best" is, as I think we can all agree, largely subjective. Now, when we talk of a wine which is in and of itself completely different than anything else, I think that the classification "the best" no longer does that wine justice. How can you compare a wine so unique to others? When I speak about the wines of Ted Lemon from his... Full Post >

Karri & Eric

Karri and Eric tied the knot on July 5, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" in the Crabapple Gardens and danced the night away at the Fearrington Barn. How did you and your partner meet? After years of living 10 blocks apart from each other in New York City, it only took one day to meet through Eric was encouraged by his sister to sign up after she met her husband through, and I was encouraged by my dad who was concerned about the quality of men lingering in...
