Happy Halloween!

I'm not a huge fan of Halloween, but this spread from Emily of Cupcakes & Cashmere makes a Halloween party vastly more appealing.

Happy Halloween!


MiH Jeans AW '12

The Henley Shirt and the Skinny Marrakesh combine for an irresistibly retro look with a modern twist.


Interior of the Week

I'm officially in my new apartment!  I can't wait to get everything set up and get back to exploring the city.  There is even an extra room for an office, very fancy. . .

I can't wait to get a smartphone and join the Instagram fun.  It's such an easy way to have a visual journal of your perspective and experiences.  Are you addicted to Instagram?

Here are a few favorites via Honestly WTF:


Interior of the Week

I love a wingback chair tucked in the corner.  It's such a cozy spot to catch up on reading.


On My Radar: Neutral Tops

I've been drawn to these pretty neutral tops.  Sometimes the season calls for sparkle and sometimes it can be nice to be a little more subdued.

Have a lovely weekend!

Toast AW/12

Toast UK has some really lovely pieces for autumn.  The collection is such a great mix of romantic and practical.  That velvet blazer is perfection.

Wedding Cake

Who doesn't love wedding cake?  Nothing is more disappointing than a wedding that skips the cake.

Here are a few of my favorites from Pinterest. . .

Everlane Fall Collection

I've been waiting patiently (rather impatiently) for the Everlane Fall collection to launch.  Cozy sweatshirts, lovely scarves, and cashmere. . .  What more could a Fall wardrobe need?

Join Everlane in bypassing the middleman and sharing the awesomesauce directly.


Interior of the Week

The muted palette of this room and the cozy furnishings create an inviting retreat.  It also reminded me of this quote from House Beautiful's 35 Decorating Secrets from Top Interior Designers.
"Every room needs a touch of black, just as it needs at least one antique piece."
- Jan Showers
Black accents add crispness and contrast to the space which keep it feeling fresh and bright.


On My Radar: Weekend Wear

Sometimes weekend wear gets a bad rap because it can be slouchy and unflattering.  Well, as always, J.Crew to the rescue.  Here are some basics to ramp up your weekend wear.

Have a lovely weekend!

Apartment Inspiration

Completely preoccupied with moving into my new apartment, hopefully before the end of this month!  So far, I've only been able to stock up on kitchen supplies and try to organize everything.  I can't wait to be in the city again.

You can follow all my apartment inspirations on Pinterest.

Satomi Kawakita

I love browsing Satomi Kawakita rings. They have a certain je ne sais quoi, no?


Fall Shoe Collection

As the weather turned much cooler this week I realized a gap in my wardrobe.  I have no shoes for fall: no booties, no loafers, and no oxfords.  This needs to be remedied asap; )


Interior of the Week

I love the warmth of Marlien Rentmeester's home featured on The Glitter Guide.  As the West Coast Editor of Lucky magazine she is bound to have amazing style and the know-how to combine color and  style effortlessly.


On My Radar: Printed Pants

H&M is the perfect place to try out trends like printed pants.  I hope you have an adventurous weekend!

Back to Basics: Raglan Tee

I love a raglan tee, inherently athletic and perfect for any tomboy's closet.  They can be dressed up or down and are definitely made for weekends.

Ideas for a Raglan Tee:


A few classics. . .

Just a few classics I've been eyeing:

1. A lovely J.Crew link necklace, perfect for crew neck tops.
2. Penfield Kasson Parka, obsessed.
3. J.Crew Harper boots, an updated classic.
4. A burgundy clutch, the hot color for fall.

A few classics. . .


Dries Van Noten Spring 2013

Sheer plaids and lovely florals, all mixed to perfection.
