FEED x West Elm

Now here is a collaboration that makes total sense: FEED & West Elm. I love the new products they have now available, especially crushing on the "wheat" pattern, seen in the pot holder & oven mitt set below.  FEED has such a great mission of providing food for those in need around the world. Every piece they sell shows the amount of meals that you are providing with your purchase. There is much to explore on FEED's site too (I love the new leather cross body bag).

My faves from the collection: salad servers | striped tea towel | square cutting board | pot holder & oven mitt


Friday Faves of the Month

Fall is here! On a drive through the suburbs on Wednesday, I saw that the leaves were starting to change, the foliage is coming out.  As I am writing this, I am eating Chobani's seasonal pumpkin flavor- so good! I was inspired by a lot this month; check out my faves. Have a great first weekend of fall!

Feeling fall

Happy first full day of fall! I am feeling the cool air shift in and wanting to add those autumnal tones to my wardrobe. Here's to all things apple & pumpkin, football Sundays, and snuggly sweaters.

Weekend Scenes: NYC

Such a fun weekend in NYC!  Below are some highlights...not pictured: shopping in Union Square, a delicious brunch at The Smith, and a rainy morning facial at Mario Badescu.
The train ride through coastal CT is always so pretty.
After many, many times of seeing this, it never ceases to give me excited butterflies to be in NYC.
Visiting with Koons, Calder, and Martin.
My friend had some Drybar gift certificates so we figured what better time to use them? P.S. The Notebook was playing while we got blow outs- swoon.
Shared plates at Beauty & Essex - the inside was decorated with vintage jewelry that I wanted to snatch off the walls. Dessert included a milkshake shot - yum!



New York City

I'll be heading to NYC tomorrow night after work for my semi-annual fall trip there. It seemed fitting to post these today as we remember the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Sometimes it feels like that day was so long ago, another lifetime. Other times, I cannot believe it was 13 years ago, and it feels like yesterday, the effects still felt today in our country and around the world.  

There really is nothing like the streets and spirit of NYC, and I look forward to seeing the Freedom Tower and that skyline rise tall when I head in tomorrow.

Follow my trip on Instagram - a few things on the docket: brunch, shopping, and Jeff Koons. See you back here Monday!
