a simple wardrobe for fall

Happy Labor Day dear readers!  I hope you all are enjoying this day off and that you’re feeling as excited as I am that it’s September 1st.  James and I have been in the midst of a major decluttering of our lives this weekend.  It started with the living room, where we had hundred of books that we had already read, but weren’t enjoying anymore.  Now we’re on to our office and closets.  Remember this closet cleanout tip I blogged about a few weeks ago?  Well, it’s in full force and I have pared down my wardrobe a ton!  Enter Elizabeth Suzann.  She’s a Nashville based clothing designer and I’m hoping to invest in one of her pieces once I finish clearing out the cheap/old/ill-fitting items in my closet.  It feels so refreshing to clean out the clutter and I’m craving the simplicity of a well-edited closet.  These pieces are high-quality, simple and timeless.

three fall things

Hello everyone!  We got back into Columbus yesterday afternoon and I’m definitely adjusting to this new (old) environment, namely the muggy weather!  But what’s getting me through is knowing that fall is just around the corner.  Fall is definitely my favorite season, particularly in Ohio.  There’s something about a mid-west fall that feels so special.  What are some of your favorite things about fall?  I wanted to list out a few and hear if you guys have anything you’re looking forward to!

1.  Dark nail polish.  I always love a dark manicure and I probably won’t stray too far away from my typical grey this fall.

2.  Black on black on black.  Nothing screams cold weather like an all black uniform.

3. Layers.  I can’t wait to pull on a cozy sweater or sweatshirt.

What else am I excited about?  The new Eli & Barry collection which I’ll be revealing mid-September!  Not only will you be able to get this collection as earrings, but as necklaces, as well!  Can’t wait to share with you all!

fall 2014 favorites

That’s right, my friends, fall fashion is hitting the stores and it’s hard not to get hooked into the newest fall buys.  Over the next few weeks, I’ll be doing a round-up of some of my favorite fall 2014 clothing.  Up first…the coats and jackets from Zara.  So. Good.

a weekend out west

My family and I just landed back in Denver after a wonderful long weekend in San Francisco.  There were so many things that I loved about this city.  The first is that my parents honeymooned in San Francisco 35 years ago.  When I asked my dad about that time in their lives, he said that he never could have guessed that every day after that trip would get more and more fun with my mom.  We were enjoying a bottle of California red wine and the tears (my tears) started flowing.  So sweet.

Anyways, for this trip, we had decided to rent a beautiful apartment through Airbnb in The Mission and I really loved the personality of the area.  It was really fun to stay in a home instead of a hotel because we definitely experienced restaurant fatigue a few times, so we picked up dinner at Bi-Rite and enjoyed the amazing view of the city from our terrace.  The Mission is full of coffee/tea shops, cool boutiques (check out Mira Mira and Voyager) and amazing restaurants.   The Balmy Street Murals are definitely worth checking out if you’re in that area.  The Mission is not as touristy as other parts of San Francisco, which is really nice.  I also got to visit with one of my dear friends, Sarah, who I met in Columbus, but she now lives just outside of San Francisco.  We hiked around Sutro Baths, had lunch at Louis’ and explored Haight Ashbury on Sunday.  Overall, we walked over 25 miles over the course of three days!  See some photos that we captured of our trip below. :)

It’s the weekend vol. 27

Happy Friday from San Francisco!  I haven’t been here since high school and it looks a bit different from my “mature” perspective…especially since I’m of drinking age! :)  I’m dying over the street style in the neighborhood we’re staying in (The Mission.)  I can’t wait to explore this city over the next few days.  Here are some bits an pieces to get you inspired for the weekend!

I recently finished this braided rope camera strap so that I could carry my camera around in style in San Francisco.

It’s a great time of year to get a bathing suit since they’re going on sale.  I wish this one was still available in my size!

I just finished this book and it’s one of my favorites that I’ve read in a while…such an amazing love story.

This made me laugh.

I’m loving the new fall arrivals over at Zara…I’ll take this please.
