A Weekend in New Canaan and Ridgefield, Connecticut

Last weekend I had so much fun with my mother while we were walking around New Canaan and Ridgefield, CT! Usually my mom and I go every weekend to Greenwich, New Canaan, Westport, Wilton, or any other small towns in Fairfield County to walk around or go shopping.  I know New Canaan very well, but I had only been to Ridgefield a couple of times very long ago. It was really fun and I had a great time!!

Here is a really badly taken picture from my mom's iPhone of New Canaan. It has a ton of little, privately owned shops as well as larger chain stores such as J. Crew and Ralph Lauren. It is definitely the preppiest town in Fairfield County in my opinion!! 

Garelick and Herbs is a small market/cafĂ© that has a couple of locations in FC. There is a store 5 minutes away from my school so I always go there for lunch to get a great create-your own-salad! 

Tequila Mockingbird. MY FAVORITE PLACE EVER. Yes, it looks kind of sketchy from the outside, but it is one of my absolute favorite restaurants! It has delicious mexican food and my family and I go there once a week, sometimes twice!

Last weekend, we went to Gates (which is right next to Tequila) for lunch. 

There is also a J. Crew in New Canaan. I go there all the time and everyone who works there is so nice!!

My mother and I bought a ton of Girl Scout cookies that were being sold in town.

Next, we went to Ridgefield! It is only about 20 minutes away from New Canaan and really close to our house!

Ridgefield had the cutest bookstore. My mother bought an interior design book for our house!!

We were so happy to find the store Turkey Ridge in Ridgefield. It had a lot of cute items like jewelry and home accessories!

We were successful in finding some equestrian themed items with which to decorate our house!!

Lastly, we finished off the day with Starbucks in the fantastic red Christmas cups!!! 

Have a great day!
