Favorite Fall Color

Fall is now officially here and I’m getting in the mood for cozier days ahead free of the chill of air-conditioning or muggy, sticky humidity! One of the colors I am SO jonesing for is sagey-grey-olivey-green. Kind of a complicated color that can go SO wrong if not the right tone, it’s both warm and cool and totally sophisticated. Look for green that have a nice dose of grey to them and pair them with gold, creams, charcoals, wood tones and leather. For colors that compliment try a birds egg blue or coral. :)

As we approach fall (yay yay yay yay!) so much new stuff is coming out and fall trends are coming into focus- for footwear that means the block heel.  We saw some of this during the summer, but it’s even BIGGER for fall. Which is fantastic since it makes walking a whole lot more stable (can we all agree there is nothing more cringe-worthy than watching a woman walking like a foal on new legs in expensive, painful 4″ stilettos?)  Be it boots, booties, pumps or even flats- a chunky heels of any size will make you look of the moment this coming season.  I’m still on the fence a little with the new trend of “lady who lunches” style small block heels on flats a la Ferragamo, but I’m sure I’ll come around!

Design Crush: Rose Uniacke

(Dying to wear a tulle skirt with a tee shirt and total nonchalance? Try this one)

As I think about redoing aspects of my house (partly to keep Henry from killing himself, partly to streamline and edit my life of unnecessary clutter and noise) I’ve been looking for inspiration everywhere.  And I found a big dose of it in the work of British designer Rose Uniacke.  A talent for sure, with a discerning eye and a tightly edited look, she finds a way to combine rustic and clean, antiques and modern and color and uniform paleness into a fabulously chic result.

Fashion Friday: Where I Shop For Henry

Sorry this is late- Henry’s nanny is out sick so I’m a little behind! A lot of you have asked me on Instagram to do another post about where I shop for Henry– so here you go, a big roundup of where I shop again and again for the little man.  Shopping for girls is easy (my ovaries shudder every time I see something baby girl that is leopard) but boys are a little harder, so I hope this helps!

Gap and Old Navy constantly leave packages by my door not only because their stuff in on trend and well made for the price, but they are ALWAYS having a sale (like right now, 35% off everything).  They have total classics too, like the cable sweater below that I bought when it was on clearance last spring in every size- he’ll probably have one for every year until he goes to college).
