The {Faux} Fur Vest

I can’t get over this faux fur vest from Donna Slayers’ Fabulous Furs {I mean they’re even called fabulous!} They look and feel just like real fur, except you don’t have to feel guilty about wearing them. I fell for this soft blonde color in mink and paired it with the Worth Skinny Jean from Lilly Pulitzer. I’ll for sure have this on repeat all season!

In The Kitchen

Williams Sonoma / Butcher Block: Boos / Salt & Pepper: Peugeot / Copper Canisters: Williams Sonoma / White Canisters: Williams Sonoma /  Stand Mixer: KitchenAid

Our house is finally coming together so I wanted to give you a peak inside! The kitchen is 100% done and until I can get the finishing touches on our other rooms, I wanted to share it with you! When we were house hunting this kitchen just spoke to me! I fell in love with the subway tile backsplash, marble countertops and white cabinets. It has such a clean look and open feel which is a huge change from our previous home. My obsession for copper started when my husband and I first started dating and It’s grow into a collection the past several years. I love how it looks and it makes me feel like Julia Child when I’m using it! You can shop some of my favorite pieces below, along with more of our kitchen staples!

The Striped Sweater

ChicWish / Denim: AG Jeans / Watch: MICHELE {face,  band} / Flats: Chanel {similar} / iPhone Case: Lilly Pulitzer / Key Fob: Louis Vuitton {same style}

I am obsessed with this stripe sweater from ChicWish and it’s 15% off right now. You all know I’m a sucker for anything navy and white and when I saw this top online I knew it immediately had a home in my closet. It’s not too thick and has 3/4 sleeves which make it perfect for warmer Fall days and cooler nights. I also love how it has a bit of that preppy old school football feel and I’ll defiantly be wearing it on game days! I can’t rave about these jeans enough either – seriously, check out AG Jeans’ Absolute Legging. They are the softest things I’ve ever worn and don’t at all feel like a legging {more like an über soft and stretchy pair of jeans} I have been living in them lately!

The Nottingham Necklace

similar} / Bottoms: J. Crew / Necklace: Blush Brand / Watch: MICHELE / Pumps: Christian Louboutin

Blush Brand created the best tassel necklace for fall! The Nottingham Necklace is perfect with its grey Druzy stone and long silk tassel {you can pre order yours here!} I paired mine with an Elliott Lauren color blocked top but you can shop a more affordable and similar style from Nordstrom. Although it’s fall in Florida I wanted to keep my look light so I broke out my favorite white bottoms {yes, you can wear white!} and finished my look with a pair of killer heels!

What a day it has been- I thought this post went live a few hours ago, but it obviously didn’t! I’ve gone back to work for the first time in almost two years and I love it! The boutique I work at is the absolute cutest and I’m discovering new designers and lines I’ve never heard of. I can’t wait to share more from the store and introduce you to some wonderful brands! I’m loving this top from Kiki Lynn. She is out of D.C, has only been around for a year and all her clothes are made in the US! She creates a line which incorporates an effortless and timeless style and I am hooked! I added a pop of color with bangles from Bourbon & Boweties and colorful flats from Tory Burch {similarhere}.

Florida Fall

J. Crew / Denim: J. Crew / Belt: J. McLaughlin {similar} / Cape: Burberry / Heels: Christian Louboutin

Fall in Florida means layers! I have been obsessed with this Burberry cape ever since our Italy trip and it has continued to be my staple this season. It’s Merino Wool and provides the perfect amount of warmth when nights get cool {it’s even reversible as long as you don’t monogram} I love J. Crew’s classic gingham shirts and you can find them in fun, not so classic colors throughout the season {like neon amethyst and seamist which are on sale!} I layered mine and paired it with classic denim, added a nude heel and adjustable equestrian belt to polish off my look.

Back to Blogging

Dress: ChicWish / Boots: Tory Burch

It’s been a crazy week, but I am so happy to be settled in our new home and back to blogging again! My husband and I were so overwhelmed with the amount of work and energy this move required that we took Friday off from home improvements and headed to Pensacola Beach for a much needed date night. It was just what we needed and I had an excuse to put on real clothes for once! My dress is from ChicWish and its on sale for less than $37 {true to size, I’m wearing s/m} Tory Burch has my favorite boots for Fall and these are the Junction Riding Boot. They come in both Black and Almond and even in extended calf sizes. I’ve linked similar dresses below along with my favorite Calypso dress {if you want to splurge!}

Showered With Love

One of my great friends found out she was pregnant a few months ago so before we moved I threw her a gender neutral baby shower! I decorated with blue, pink, grey and gold and used elephants as our theme. There’s nothing better than fresh cut flowers so I snipped a few from our yard and spread them around for decoration. A shower is always fun when you add a game and for ours you couldn’t say the  word “baby”. We used diaper pins as our tally and whoever ended up with the most pins went home with one of the hydrangea arrangements {it was a great hit!} I snagged the ribbon, giant balloons, and garland from Amazon and custom ordered the cake topper {which doubles as a nursery decoration} from Etsy. I served Rosé, sweet tea to drink, fruit salad, spanakopita, mozzarella & tomato skewers, pasteurized brie with grapes, Mediterranean purses for appetizers, and cream puffs with cake for dessert! We had the best girls night and are looking forward to welcoming Baby Flood into the world in November! Ps. She’s having a girl!!!

Endless Summer

Dress: Lilly Pulitzer / Sandals: Tory Burch / Watch: MICHELE / Polish: OPI

We made it to Florida! It feels so good to be Floridians again, but I must say, I miss my sweater weather! It was such a change to go from layers to sun dresses again, but it gave me a chance to break out my summer clothes and to purchase some new resort wear. I am loving this lightweight dress from Lilly Pulitzer {comes in two prints!} and the racer back is my favorite. It makes the perfect grab and go dress and also doubles great as a beach coverup. I’ll be sharing more vacation inspired outfits throughout the week and can’t wait to get back into fall once we’ve settled into our new home!

Arezzo

Buongiorno! What better way to end your week than with a little peak into Tuscany?! 

We traveled to Arezzo one morning for their famous antiques market. It happens the first Sunday of every month and started in 1968. Over 500 vendors spread out for the two day event and you can find anything from vintage Chanel bags to a wooden Pinocchio {like the one my husband wanted to go home with above!} There’s also amazing glasswork, lace, silver and art for sale but going to the market knowledgable is a must! There are so may stalls it can be a bit over whelming, and knowing the quality and authenticity of products will insure you’re going home with something of value. It was an amazing sight to see and the city of Arezzo was gorgeous all in it’s own. Over looking the beautiful Tuscan country side and strolling through the ancient streets of Arezzo might have been one of my favorite days! 

While we were visiting, the Saracen Joust took place. It only happens twice a year {once in June, the other in September} and we were truly surprised! There are four teams in the event, each one representing the different quarters of Arezzo. The tournament rules have been unchanged since 1677 and the event begins with a parade of the four teams through the Piazza Grande. Check out what I wore for our day in Arezzo here!
