Although the temperatures are still soaring, my heart belongs to fall fashion.

We shot our fall collection mid-August, so as the photos and fabric rolled in, we updated the website, stocked Tranquil Space studios, and next is our seasonal look book. It’s filled with ways to wear the collection, testimonials from TranquiliT-lovers, and tips on building a capsule wardrobe—stay tuned!

This fall we have four new designs (shown top to bottom in the upper photos): 2in1 cap sleeve, pencil skirt, capelet, gaucho.

One big trend this fall is to wear turtlenecks under dresses so you’ll see that in a lot of our shots. It also helps extend the wear of your favorite summer frocks—just add tights, boots, and a turtleneck!

To help jumpstart the season, I’ll be offering a Labor Day discount code to all TranquiliT newsletter subscribers. No pressure, but if you like saving on your favorite staples, sign up and you’ll receive the code later this week.

TranquiliT is designed by me with YOUR input (the 2in1 cap sleeve was a request), locally-sewn line using eco-friendly fabrics, and custom made to order. Slow fashion is the new black. Bisous. x

Writing in the Woods

writing in woods

Spend a weekend writing in the woods while enveloped in peak fall foliage near Berkeley Springs, WV .

This tranquility-filled weekend, October 28-30, is for the writing curious to the published author and immerses you in the writing and yoga connection. Practice yoga (not catered to brand new yogis), pen responses to writing prompts, learn inspiring writing tools, and explore your voice in a safe setting.

Leave inspired with a writing action plan, connect with like-hearted women, and sip an abundance of organic tea and hot cocoa. Nurture your senses with homemade vegetarian meals, read in a hammock under the trees, and savor vegan s’mores over a campfire.

For those seeking adventure, we’re located next to the Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area with 75 miles of hiking trails nearby. For those seeking restoration, you’ll find a rejuvenating spa, heated pool, and whirlpool within walking distance.

Lessons Learned


For our late fall Hip Tranquil Chick 10-Year Online Celebration {event details coming in September}, I’m working on a piece about lessons learned since its’ released in 2006. So much transition, loss, and triumph rolled into ten years!

What are your big life lessons from the past decade? Can you name them? Do you feel them? Some of mine definitely had visceral reactions. Take a moment to ponder and, if you can, share in the comments section below.

Here’s to learning lessons, growing, and transforming! Bisous. x
