I’m entirely excited and in major anticipation for Reputation. I have had “Call It What You Want” on repeat for the last week. One. More. Day. People. I may have all the songs pre-released already memorized. I’m planning my concert outfit. I’m buying a sweatshirt like Taylor’s on the cover. No shame whatsoever.
I realized I never showcased the beautiful architecture in Connecticut, mostly on the Yale campus, so here goes.
This is the The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion that we just stopped by to check out. It was closed the only day we could see it but the exterior was so cool to see from the walking trails around it. It was built in 1864 and has been used for several movie scenes. Just walking the grounds around it felt eerie to me. There was definitely some kind of strange presence.
After that, we heading to New Haven to see the Yale campus. It was better than I imagined. I expected like 2 buildings to have some cool windows or whatever. Old Campus was made up almost entirely of Victorian Gothic structures. So beautiful.
Sorry I’m wearing the same outfit in every pic. There was no time or place for a wardrobe change.
You can’t get the whole feel of the campus by the odd angles and view we took. All in an attempt to capture the enormousness and detail of the buildings.
Every door was immense and intimidating. I loved how the student id scanners were placed on the crazy old gates. Some buildings were built in 1750!
Yes, there was tons of ivy at the ivy league. This picture doesn’t do it justice. Some halls had it growing up the entire side of the building and down on the ground floor.
There was a great street with shops and little restaurants so we had to hit the college bookstore.
I had just grabbed ice cream when we decided it was necessary for one last souvenir. I bought a mug…it makes me feel super collegiate while drinking my coffee.On the way home we found some cute shops in New Canaan as well. The fox is my spirit animal. I had to pose.
This was the best! My own personal store had unique little gifts and table decor.
Look at the sister store that was next door!
Our night ended in Westport at the prettiest Anthropologie I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Anyone else buying Taylor’s album? You know you want to.
“T” minus 1 day.
