  • Seaport for all Seasons

    Newburyport Massachusetts, only 35 minutes from Boston! It is a seaport for all seasons, and a thriving community with unique shopping, fine dining, arts and culture.

    It's the birthplace of the United States Coast Guard! In the spring and summer, you can stroll through downtown while you admire the window boxes and hanging flowers and plants. Don't forget to check out all the adorable shops.

    Enjoy flowers, specialty shops and fun festivals

    It's Nantucket life, but easier to get to, without having to deal with the ferries that take you 30 miles across the sea. The Clipper City Rail Trail & Harborwalk  is only 1.1 miles, and it's extremely scenic. You can do birding field trips to Plum Island, or even whale watching - it all sounds amazing, for people of all ages!

    You can walk or bike this fabulous trail

    You don't want to miss the Custom House Maritime Museum. And in the fall, you can go to the Fall Harvest Fest. During autumn days, don't be surprised if you see that all the town lampposts have been creatively decorated. In the winter, it's fun to cross-country ski and snowshoe!

    Dining and drinking for a good cause at Harvest Fest

    Coming up in October for ten days, it's Savor Newburyport. There's a chili cookoff, a craft beer event, and the 2nd annual cocktail and appetizer competition. All of this does sound so delicious, and the best part is, proceeds benefit local charities!

    A delicious festival for the whole family

    So whether you're wearing those toasty cashmere sweaters in the brisk sea air of Newburyport Massachusetts, or the lightweight cottons on the South Florida Coast, remember, it's all about style.

    Shop the Newburyport collection from Bonnie Roseman's BLT - comfort and elegance.

  • Marfa, A Hidden Art Town in Texas

    It's a magical and mystical place...Marfa, Texas! It's a small town three hours from El Paso, and about 6 hours from Austin, Texas, in the middle of a vast desert land on the border of the Great Bend National Forest.

    There are only around 2,000 residents year-round, but tons of New Yorkers and Angelinos have descended upon this special place. It's been discovered because of the amazing art foundations, installations and galleries, even a fabulous book store called the Marfa Book Company. The Donald Judd Foundation and the Chinati Foundation are too amazing for words.

    Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Texas

    Outside of town is a Prada store! Not really...It's a Prada Marfa store! A total replica in actual size of a real Prada store. However, it's just an art installation, life-size - it's such a hoot! Oddly enough, even in this little town, there are more sophisticated restaurants than you can count on two hands, and a delicious grocery store called The Get Go.

    Two fabulous Marfa places to see

    A private Mexican-style hacienda turned into a hotel is full of treasures! The historical Hotel Paisano: when you step into the lobby, you'll see an array of memorabilia. You can even see original photos of Rock Hudson, James Dean, and Elizabeth Taylor, taken while they filmed the movie Giant in this little town.

    I stayed at The Paisano while touring Texas with my BLT Collection

    If you're lucky enough you might even get to see the Marfa Mystery Lights! It's a special atmospheric happening in the desert sky.

    Marfa Mystery Lights will put a twinkle in your eye

    If you do have the time, a must is to venture out to the Cibolo Creek Ranch about 30 miles out of town. It is an old fort built around the same time as The Alamo and has been restored by a wealthy Houstonian and turned into a very exclusive resort. I had the pleasure of staying there. While you're on the property, you can enjoy amazing views of the Rio Grande and Mexico. On the ground there are magnificant crystal formations everywhere!

    Because Marfa borders the Great Bend National Forest, it's been found to be the darkest night sky in the country. For you star-gazers, it is absolutely breathtaking on a clear night.
    It is a place that you do not want to miss.

    So whether you're wearing those flannel shirts, cowboy boots, leather jackets and sweaters in Marfa, Texas, or wearing those lightweight linens and those cottons down in Southern Florida, it's all about style.
