Cozy & Crisp Fall Accessories

This weekend we entered REAL fall weather– crisp and chilly, perfect for sweaters, hot tea, yummy soups and cozy blankets. And since we start spending more time inside as the temps drop, it’s nice to give your house a refreshing once over, edit down the items that need to go and introduce in some cozy finds for the winter months.
Today I partnered with Nordstrom to round up some of these items that create a real sense of peace during the fall, and ended up with this collection of luscious, natural textures and tones– which honestly makes me want to toss everything in my house and start over!!!

I am especially fond of the new Jenni Kayne items they have (including the shoes too) and the bedding from The White Company, which I’ve heard is awesome.  Also, so many of these items would make amazing holiday gifts, if you are on top of your game like that and shopping early!  Click on each image for links!

Fashion Friday: Dressing For Family Photos

Our pic from last year- (by Maureen Ford) all in coordinating tones but NOT matching exactly!

It’s that time of year again– when you attempt to take some attractive family photos for holiday cards and gifts!  I learned last year how extremely difficult it is with a crazy toddler, and yet somehow we ended up with gorgeous pics!  My rule of thumb for dressing for family pictures is to make sure everyone coordinates in color and style level (i.e. all casual or all fancy, but not half the family in dresses and half in hockey jerseys!)  Here are three styles to help guide you in picking your own outfits! (As you can tell, navy is always a safe place to start!)

Source Spotlight: MArk D. Sikes for Hudson Valley

I literally YELPED out loud when I saw the preview of Mark Sikes collection for Hudson Valley— not only is he making the EXACT light blue pendant I needed for a Cape house project, the entire collection is SO SO SO GOOD I could barely contain myself.  We all have to wait until February/ March though, when they are released and available to purchase, but in the meantime we can all drool (oh and P.S. the pricing is pretty decent!) here are my faves from the collection:

A Pair of Royal Nurseries

While the news that the Duchess of Sussex is with child is a wee bit triggering for me emotionally, I can’t help but be very excited about another royal baby.  I mean, is this girl’s life for real? She marries a prince and now gets to have a baby that will have a tiny BRITISH ACCENT, which happens to be every girl who’s seen The Holiday‘s dream come true? Come on, share the wealth, girlfriend! :)

Fashion Friday: Fall Tones


I’ve been really into all the burnt reds, golds and yellows as of late when it comes to fashion (you can see my new favorite caramel colored cardigan at the bottom of the post or on Instagram!) These warm, cozy colors are totally inspired my the tones of fall and perfect for this time of year. I pulled together a few outfits that utilize these colors in small and large doses- from work to apple picking and everything in between!
