Friday Things

SHOPPING: There are so many good sales right now–I’ve been wanting some tech-friendly gloves and finally picked up this pair. The Shopbop sale is over but the East Dane one for the men is still on, and J.Crew still has 30% outerwear, which is about as good as it gets for them!

EATING: The weather change (it was 90+ degrees in Dallas last weekend!) and seemingly everyone being sick finally caught up with me and I’m currently battling a sort of sinusy/itchy throat/achy kind of thing. That meant a couple of my current favorite green smoothies, some miso broth that I got at Trader Joe’s, and the Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken (add some sautéed broccoli and spinach, served with rice that you cook in the miso broth!).

WEEKEND AGENDA: There isn’t too much on the weekend agenda save for a tailgate + football game and an exciting new project I’m working on (details will be shared eventually!). I am hoping to get in the kitchen to bake some fall-themed goodies, though….!


Sandy shared photos of The Berkeley in London, another hotel I’d love to visit. Add this to The Goring and it looks like I’ll be devoting a day to browsing hotels next time I visit the city.

– Speaking of traveling, Napa just jumped high up on my list–if you’re planning a trip or foresee yourself going, bookmark Victoria’s guide to Napa nowwww. It’s packed with tips on what to do, where to stay, how to get around, etc.

For all of us who partially go to Ikea for the food.

Love this fall bouquet from Liz…I want to start wrapping flowers in newspaper!

Jess launched her own clothing line and it is divine. Personal favorites are this skirt and this vest–definitely view them on her blog, as these photos don’t do them justice!

– PS: It’s Kate Spade’s Friends & Family Sale! Take 25% off your entire purchase with code INDULGE.

ICYMI: 10 best sweaters under $50, an outfit from this past weekend in Dallas, basically an ode to L.L. Bean, a sleek black + white look.
