The High Point Launch of Erin Gates by Momeni!

This weekend I went down to the famous High Point Market to officially launch my new rug collection by Momeni.  My staff and I have been working hard remotely to get the showroom ready, and the team on the ground from Momeni really stepped up to make it a great experience I felt great about.   It was super surreal to have my own showroom (and billboard…) and show off this grouping of rugs I’m really proud of. These will all be in various retails stores and available on line (vendor TBD) in March!

Fashion Friday: Favorite Fall Outfits for All Occasions

For todays post I partnered again with Nordstrom, my favorite place for one-stop-shopping, to bring you some fun fall outfits that are sure to inspire you for just about any occasion this season.

Perfect for a football game (watching, attending) or really anything casual. Nothing beats the security of a giant scarf and the comfort of pretty suede loafers.

Leather pants you will wear ALL. THE. TIME. (trust) and a comfy but sexy off the shoulder sweater make for the perfect date night/ night out with the girls outfit.  Ain’t nobody got time to be freezing their buns off in halter tops during the colder months!  Also, I’ve been trying to justify these heels for months- they look insane with denim AND fancier outfits…. help.

My Renovation Progress

We’re entering the final phase of our sunroom renovation (well, new build, actually since we tore it down). I CANNOT wait to get into this room! I already love it so much and it’s not even full of pretty things yet! We’ve been working with the fabulous Nik Monahan from Monahan Contracting (best builder experience to date, for real) and everything is coming out exactly as I had hoped.

Last week the V-groove walls and ceiling went up and I got really giddy. Between that and the windows there is SO much light, which is a lovely departure from the rest of our house which tends to be on the dark side with low ceilings. We’re adding wood beams to the ceiling, which will really be exciting.  And today it’s all being painted Benjamin Moore White Dove (which is the trim color throughout the lower level of the house)

Fashion Friday: Henry’s Fall Wardrobe (and some finds for the little ladies too!)

I love dressing my little monkey for fall (can you believe he’s going to be TWO in a month??) It’s so much fun to get to pick out these miniature man outfits everyday while he will still let me.  He really has no opinion yet on clothing beyond always wanting to wear a baseball hat.  I think we were so obsessed with him having one on as a baby that now he thinks it’s a requirement to leave the house.  The other day (when this picture was taken) I asked him if he wanted to go meet Daddy at the train and he looked at me with big eyes all excited and screamed “HAAAAAAT! HAAAAAAT!” while patting his head and running around.  Too cute.

Anyways, here are some of the items I’ve either bought or am planning to buy for Henry for fall. I’m obsessed with the Patagonia vest I just bought at Nordstrom (which he’s wearing above with this Joules tee and Target jeans).  I may need to buy the jacket version too.  And I clearly have a stripe and Red and blue addiction. :)

And while I don’t have a girl to shop for, doesn’t mean I don’t DIE over the “mini me” options out there. I mean, can I have this wardrobe (complete with gold Chucks?)
