I'm going out tonight with some friends to celebrate, and here's what I'll be listening to while I get ready.

Hope the weekend finds you dancing away September.

Fall craves.

Sunday, September 21, 2014

It's the first day of fall - here is what I'm dying to wear this season. 

Insane (faux) fur in completely unexpected & strange colors.

Long, easy open cardigans inspired by kimonos. 
[ Danish blogger Trine Kjaer in Ganni ] 

Seasonally perfect jumpers. Longer sleeves, darker patterns. 
[ June Ambrose in H&M ] 

SEQUINS. Any chance I get. Anything inspired by athletics. (Except couture running shoes as fashionista status symbols  - that is a trend I wish would go away.) 
[ Tom Ford runway, Spring/summer 2014 ] 

Camel / tan / whiskey / denim / black. REPEAT.

All the things I've admired on others, but never figured out myself: tan blazers, white denim, pocket squares. Menswear. Basically copying this outfit head-to-toe. 
[ NYC blogger Dan Trepanier ] 

Orange, of course. Preppy, punchy accessories, a la Blair Waldorf in seasons 1 & 2 of Gossip Girl. 
[Not sure on the source - I'm guessing an old-ish J Crew catalog ] 

Denim, leather, shine. And skirts this length & longer. 
[ Ashley Madekwe in Topshop, 7 for All Mankind, Saint Laurent & Balenciaga ] 

Lots more inspiration on my Pinterest!

Sigh #3. A SWIILPT playlist.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Unfortunately for the world, I was born a romantic - complete with frequent fainting spells and near constant daydreaming. But the good news is it means I have a thing for really wonderful jazz. I always listen to jazz during the fall when I'm feeling moody/swoon-y. This is the third Sigh playlist I've made (see Sigh #1 here, and Sigh #2 here). 

I wrote a list of suggested activities to go along with Sigh #2, and that list suits this iteration perfectly, too, so here it is. 

1 - Homework (I'm jealous).
2 - Bake pies.
3 - Makeout (trust me).
4 - Take a walk in the center of the city.
5 - Take a walk in the middle of nowhere. 
6 - Drink hot toddies.
7 - Wear slippers.
8 - Write letters to people you like.
9 - Ride a train. 
10 - Do all of the above, in the course of one day.

Hope you enjoy it!
