Fashion Friday: Just For You- 20% Off At Joules!

We are finishing up our trip to Nantucket but wanted to post today to share with you that our sponsor, Joules, the great British brand known for it’s love of stripes and comfort, is offering my readers 20% off full price merchandise through October 8th with the code EOS20! How awesome is that- just in time for fall shopping!

Henry and I brought along some Joules on our trip and we tried to capture us in some, but taking a picture with an overstimulated toddler is much like wrestling with an alligator.

Time Away.

We are enjoying our time away on Nantucket (you can’t really call it “vacation” when you have a 21 month in tow!)  I was planning to have ample free time to blog, but that is not the case. I will be posting Friday, but until then follow on Instagram to see snaps from our trip of this charming island.

XO,

FASHION FRIDAY: THE PERFECT “SEASON TRANSITION” COLOR

Some would consider cornflower/hydrangea blue strictly a summer color. But I love wearing this color year round, as it really brings such life to my face and I always seem to get compliments when I wear it. It’s happy and bold but still soft.

(wearing these earrings today with this cashmere ruana while looking at this hydrangea on my desk)

My friend Sarah has this stunning cornflower blue wool coat from Tibi that I have coveted for years.  So when I saw the Boden coat (#1) in the catalog recently I had to order it.   And it made me think of how great this color looks for the tricky transition between summer and fall.  Mixed with oranges, fig and olive green (a favorite- and also THE color for fall) it adds some punch and a little unexpectedly flair as the temps turn a bit chillier.  Here are some items in this shade I love, and some color pairing suggestions you may not have considered.

1. (20% off today!) // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. // 13. (cashmere for $78!)// 14.

Also, if any of you will be on Nantucket next week I’m doing a little book signing at the fab Margaux pop up shop! Please stop by and say hello (and bonus- their shoes are amazing.)

Have a happy and safe long weekend everyone.

 

My New Living Room Plan + The New Traditionalists

Our renovation is moving along nicely (I cannot wait- this room is going to change our lives!)  Along with the new space, I’m changing some things in the living room since we won’t need a sectional anymore (tv going into the new room which THRILLS me because now you won’t see a TV above a fireplace right when you walk into the house- a total pet peeve).  This will be more of a “formal living” space.  Although I use that term loosely because how formal can you be with a toddler running the joint?  While I’m still going to be careful of finishes and fabrics (and sharp edges) I want to make this space feel more grown up and “me”.

While pondering this change, I had decided I needed new side tables regardless.  The modern burl cube tables I had were fab, but I needed something with storage now that I have an ottoman instead of two level coffee table. You know, a spot to keep remotes, magazines and books.  So I worked with the fab peeps at The New Traditionalists (a favorite vendor with amazing traditional-with-an-edge style) to create the perfect new side tables that work great now and will be amazing in my newly decorated space too.

I chose the Side Table No. 7 for its clean lines, lower shelf and large drawer.  I specified the exact size to fit my space.  When it came to finish, I knew I wanted a slightly off white and after seeing their bevy of samples chose China White for the body.  I toyed with grasscloth drawer fronts (you can send COM goods to apply to their pieces) but instead went with their Fine Linen painted finish in Edgecomb Gray with Brown. It looks a lot like grasscloth but is wipeable! Perfect for Henry’s sticky fingerprints that seem to be on everything these days!  The interior of the drawer I had done in a sweet grey-blue (Benjamin Moore Smoke).

I also chose their brass tassel pull (LOVE).  And the details are fabulous. Everything is designed to your specifications in New York and then made and finished in Connecticut.
