Bundle Up in Coats, Scarves + Hats

Nina Faux Fur Collar Double Breasted Coat // Piped Peacoat // Structured Wool Coat

Yesterday it was in the 70s in western Pennsylvania, but I’m still anxious to get out my winter wear! What can I say, I really look forward to layering up – especially in my embarrassingly large scarf collection. I’m not looking to add anything other than a pair of gloves this winter, but there were too many good pieces not to share. What’s your coat closet lacking?

12 Bathtub Caddies

 

After childhood I mostly abandoned baths for showers. Maybe I’m not patient enough to sit still for that long, or maybe there’s something about sitting in your own stew. The exception is when I’m under the weather, which I was a few weeks ago with a gnarly cold. Then I want to climb into the hottest water, add some salts, and let the steam do its work. And because the tub ledge is a less-than-reliable location to set a mug of tea – or wine or anything – I got to thinking how nice it would be to buy or make a tub caddy to help me out.

October Favorites

1/ Burt’s Bees Natural Throat Drops Honey and Lemon
Seems like everyone has already suffered their first cold of the season, and I’m no exception. Mine lasted about a week and a half and I swear these throat drops saved me from losing my mind from coughing. They’re all natural, which made them more palatable too.

2/ Fifty Type Specimens: From the Collection of Tobias Frere-Jones
These postcards from Frere-Jones’ personal collection will be loved by any type nerd. I’m looking forward to sending some out in the mail soon to brighten the day of some graphic designer friends!

3/ Gretchen Christine Vegan Leather Embroidered Convertible Tote
A sizable bag that’s perfect for toting along a ton of stuff – including my laptop some days – this bag is on point with the embroidery trend this autumn. It’s really well made and will make a great piece all winter.

4/ Honeycrisp Apples
These have been my favorite apple variety for a few years now. If you’ve never ha done before they’re super crisp and fragrant with a sweet-tart taste that varies depending on how ripe the fruit is.

5/ It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
I will never tire of watching holiday specials from my childhood. I’ve watched this one twice in October and will probably squeeze in one more viewing tonight after trick or treating wraps up. (Please, remember never to jump in a pile of leaves with a wet sucker!)

6/ Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation
After running out of my go-to MAC foundation a few months ago I picked up a tube of this on a Target run and was pleasantly surprised! The whipped gel formula gives my skin a soft matte finish while also hydrating – basically unheard of.

7/ Orange Clove Signature Soy Jar Candle
While this candle smells more like a bonfire to me, I still really like it. The fragrance permeates most of the first floor and even manages to make its way upstairs.

8/ Record Storage Cube
I have one of these birch cubes with a plexiglas garage front in my living room, it acts as a sweet little stand for my portable Crosby turntable and favorite vinyl. The plexiglas is available in 13 colors as well as a wood option.

9/ Google Home
Yeah, I’m a little late to the party but I’m here. So far I love telling it to play music at any given moment as well as the phone functionality.

Trending: Mustard Yellow

 

While I prefer to call it goldenrod (because ew, mustard), I think its’s pretty much a potAto/potAHto situation and either way I love it. As I was gathering resources I realized that the only item I own in this color – whatever you want to call it – is a throw blanket. Might need to rectify that sooner than later!

Culottes!

High Waisted Army Green Linen Culottes // Cami Satin Jumpsuit with Culotte Leg // Crop Culottes

Culottes is a word I associate with my grandmother, she often wears below-the-knee shorts in summer and has always called them this. It’s also a garment I’ve never thought twice about before seeing this style of cropped, wide-legged pant run rampant as of late. If you’re thinking they’re past their summertime prime or that they’re too dressy for your style, think again. Culottes can be cold weather ready by adding a fitted turtleneck or knee-high boots. They can just as easily be made casual by pairing with a tucked in t-shirt or cropped top and sneakers. Sold yet?
