I’ve been having a REALLY good summer. It’s been all about pool days, flirty skirts, jalapeño margaritas (seriously — how did this delicious invention not make it’s way north of the border yet!?). I have to admit that when August came around,  I was NOT ready for Fall. I was fighting the cold weather front and the Fall wardrobes on Pinterest. I wanted nothing to do with them. And then this week, something changed. Maybe it started when I cooked up a carb-heavy feast on Tuesday night (it was a cauliflower, burrata and thyme spaghetti, in case you were curious); or maybe it was the hours spent obsessing over Forward’s fall looks or maybe it was finally pulling out my ankle boots from the back of my closet for dinner last night.

Suddenly, the thought of the impending Fall months didn’t seem so bad. I have a few exciting months ahead: kicking off with a trip to NYFW and a (quieter) week in the Hamptons followed by a week in Paris. Then, there’s Thanksgiving, weekends in the country, my birthday, the changing leaves… So finally, I’m ready for you Fall. But please don’t get here too quickly and give us a few more weeks of warm summer bliss.


I’m obsessed with the looks that Forward pulled together for Fall. I’m especially loving these French military pants, this cashmere crew sweater, these Chloe ankle boots and these print leggings.

You know I’ll be shopping for Fall footwear this weekend because shoes are up to 70% off on Shopbop! Currently considering these Rag & Bone booties and these Jeffrey Campbell cutouts.

My friend Rebecca introduced fabrics by the yard on her shop! This girl is seriously talented. I’m loving these painted coffee & blue stripes and these stone gray spots.

I died going through Chairish‘s beach inspired collection (obviously) — especially this round sea shell mirror, this highball pendant and this coral sculpture.


Anthropologie came out with a scrapwood wallpaper and it’s pretty amazing.

A beach house is priority, but a lake house would also be nice…

Elettra Wiedemann has a brand new website, and I’m a fan!

#Ihavethisthingwithfloors. And I’m not the only one.

Lust over Jenna Lyons office at J.Crew once more.

I’m kind of dying to splurge on this bag for Fall.

More and more reasons to love Montauk.

What’s your favorite part of summer?

      I hear you. The prospect of a Fall wardrobe is the main motivator… Hopefully we have a mild winter this year!
