GARANCE DORE

Do you read Garance Dore? It’s one of my daily reads. Garance is the epitome of effortless chic (are French women just born that way?) but also has a great sense of humor and appears to be very down to earth.

I especially love her ‘Pardon My French’ videos. Here are a few favorites to get us through Friday.

P.S Can you even imagine sitting down to interview Jenna Lyons or Diane von Furstenberg? I would die and then stumble over every word!

LET’S CHAT

I do a lot of chatting on this blog and I think it’s time I took a cue from some of my favorite ladies (Mackenzie, Sarah, and Jennifer) and let you do some of the talking.I have a feeling you’re all as fabulous as the ladies above and I’d love nothing more than to get to know you better!

So here’s the plan, I’ve answered a few questions below and hope that you’ll write your own responses in the comments section.

FALL STAPLE: THE FISHERMAN’S SWEATER

via

A classic fisherman’s sweater is one of my fall staples. I like to layer mine over a chambray button down and pair with minnies for the ultimate casual weekend ensemble. Gwyneth, of course, looks a million times more chic with her polka dotted shorts, but I’m not even going to try and compete with that!

Can I let you in on a secret? The best fisherman’s sweater can be found in the most unlikely of places.. the LL Bean boys department! I have the classic cream in a size L and loove it. The fit is a little bit slouchy so I might even size down to a M when I buy the heather grey this year.

Do you love the fisherman sweater as much as I do? How do you style yours?

SO FRESH AND SO CLEAN

Normally I’m not drawn to neutral spaces, but there’s something about this home that keeps me coming back for more. The white walls and wide plank floors are the perfect backdrop to off-set that stunning ticking stripe armchair. Can’t you imagine curling up with a good book on a Sunday afternoon? That’s what I’d like to do in this space.

P.S How great is the eye poster in the dining room? Very Great Gatsby, don’t you think?

GREEN WITH ENVY

Tory Burch Frame Bag | J.Crew Matchstick Cords | Malachite Cuff | Hillary Thomas Finial

Green has always been my sister’s favorite color and one that I’ve passed over for warmer shades like orange and pink. This season, green is showing up everywhere and it’s definitely starting to turn my head.

Apparently it’s pretty easy being green when there are so many amazing options! I’d happily welcome each and every piece above into my home and wardrobe. There are just no words for that tortoise and emerald Tory Burch bag or that malachite finial from Hillary Thomas’ Chic Shop
