Outfit: Holidays at the Mill

DSC_1103.jpg

If I had to pick a favorite location for pictures, this Victorian mill is certainly it.  I’ve been coming here for a few years with my family and pets for brisk hikes, and ever since I started Mox and Socks, it’s been my go-to for outfit shoots.  It has everything I could ask for–a scenic river, woodsy trails, and three (count ’em, three!) wonderfully old buildings.

This time, I shot at the century-and-a-half-old grist mill on Salt Creek.  There’s something it that felt so singularly right for holiday pictures, perhaps because its age brings to mind decades of tradition.  While I was there, I thought about what Christmas must have been like for the family that built this mill back in the 1850s.  I’m sure they would be decked out in their winter best and put on an incredible spread of roast goose, mashed potatoes, fried apples and onions, and oh dear, now I’m hungry.

Speaking of tradition, I’ve been doing all my favorite things this week: baking cookies with my mom, watching Christmas classics, and bustling about town to finish up my shopping.  If you celebrate winter holidays, what are some of your best-loved traditions?

  1. Aw, I love how your outfit subtly references the holidays, like it’s not just bright red and kelly green but softer shades of those colors. And those gold kitten heels!
