Sponsor Welcome (Back!): Felix Doolittle

I’m always so happy when long time sponsors of EOS keep coming back to us to work together. Felix Doolittle is a special one because it’s based in my hometown of Newton, MA, and I love supporting local small businesses. Not to mention I use their address labels all the time and think their work is really lovely and unique! The artistry of the illustrations is so gorgeous and charming, don’t you think?  Their goods make awesome gifts for just about anyone, and right now you can get 20% off your order with the code FELIX20! Happy Wednesday!

Here’s a peek at some new items as well as some personal faves of mine!

These new illustrations are so fantastic, I particularly like the animal one which are a great alternative to the animal photographs that a lot of people are using in nurseries!

Timeless Classics from Williams Sonoma Home.


When working with our clients, we have a key “library” of online retailers we like to source from.  Some are very affordable, others a little more expensive, but all offering a wide variety of styles we mix and match to create custom looks for each space we work on.  One of our most consistent sources is Williams-Sonoma Home.  Higher-end than company siblings Pottery Barn and West Elm, this resource is wonderful for all traditional-meets-modern pieces that will last the test of time (both in style and quality).  Their styled spaces online are fantastic for inspiration too. So I was psyched when they asked to partner with me to show off my most favorite selections-from cashmere throws to canopy beds!  Plus right now they are offering 20% off bedding and bath and a clearance sale with up to 75% off.

Fashion Friday: The Joy of Holiday Dressing with J. McLaughlin

Many of you who follow me on Instagram asked about my outfit in a picture I posted of us on Thanksgiving.   This holiday we decided to do the “casual dress up” for our small, cold Connecticut turkey day in fabulous finds from J. McLaughlin.  I always trend towards preppy during holiday season, something about it brings out the Miss Porter’s graduate in me. I opted for an amazingly comfortable and flattering zip neck dress (that I now want in every color) with boots and a hint of fur and Andrew went the typical “dude” route in a plaid flannel paired with a a zip neck sweater and grey dress pants.  We’ll probably rock something very similar for Christmas too…


Fashion Friday: Winter Beauty Essentials

The temps have finally dropped around here and the heat has come on– which means dry winter skin and hair.  But it also means holiday season, which is when you want to look your best.  So Nordstrom asked me to select my winter and holiday beauty favorites from their huge selection of brands and I had so much fun curating this grouping for you.  Because not all your summer products will work in the winter if you live in a place that has dramatic seasonal changes, it’s great to have an arsenal of seasonal favorites- so if you have one- comment!
