Finally after weeks of traveling, we will be staying in this weekend.  It is really crazy to think we have been gone almost every weekend this entire summer. And I am in need of a little “me” time. With the holidays approaching quickly (yes, Thanksgiving and Black Friday are only three weeks away!) I want to spend as much time relaxing, eating healthy, and playing with the pups as possible.  

This weekend, my plan is to start my new book, take a bubble bath, and make some yummy recipes from my new Lemonade LA Cookbook. Not to mention loads and loads of laundry, but really who wants to talk about laundry (: So instead, I will spare you the dirty details- yes, pun intended.

Sometimes you just need a good pair of sweatpants. To be honest, I love getting dressed up for work but my ultimate favorite thing to is change into sweats the second I get home.  This Fall season, I feel like it is acceptable to wear “pj’s” in public, not like the people you see in the airport in oversized grey sweatpants and a hoodie, but the “casual, put together look.”  In the Fall there is nothing better than an oversized cashmere sweater. Add a pair of J.Crew weekend pants and a great bag and you are all set for running errands after work or all weekend long.  

Style Details

Equipment Cashmere Sweater / J.Crew Weekend Pants / Wigwam Socks / Oliver People Sunglasses / Joie Bucket Bag / Rag and Bone x Hunter Rainboots / Club Monaco Cashmere Scarf / Gorjana Bracelets


Club Monaco Skirt / J Crew Silk Stripe Top / Cynthia Vincent Heels (old, but I love these ) / Elliot Lucca Bag- Similar here / J Crew Crystal Necklace / Ray Ban Wayfarers / Stella and Dot Stack rings / David Yurman X Crossover Cuff

When I saw this Club Monaco skirt online a few weeks back, I knew I had to have it. The one problem was I didn’t know if it was going to fit right- I normally have a tough time with skirts because of my height. They never hit at the right spot, are too wide, or just all together bad.  When we were in Toronto, I tried on this beloved skirt and it fit perfectly.  I am loving this girly style with just the perfect amount of edge for Fall and throw on a pair of tights, booties and a sweater for Winter.  

Can anyone else believe it is already Thursday? To all of my girlies in New York today- I hope you have a blast at NYFW! So sad I am missing out, but I will be heading down south to Austin for some much needed family time at the S Ranch.  I will definitely be following all of the action on Pinterest and living vicariously through Hallie’s instagram account.

The 4th of July is my all time favorite holiday, and I know it is totally weird.  But I seriously love everything that goes into celebrating the 4th.  Backyard barbecues (especially hot dogs), fireworks and hanging out pool side with friends and family. Growing up my cousins and I always dressed the part for the holiday- we even had jeans with bleached out stars on them… I swear they were cute, okay well maybe not, but we sure thought we had some good style back in the day.  These days I love to wear my patriotic colors in a more subtle way, instead of pulling out my American flag swimsuit- oh don’t worry, I always had a new one from Old Navy every year.  This year I found this really cute navy striped top, and red polka dot bottoms from J Crew (they are also having 40% off swim right now!) Hope ya’ll have fun plans for the 4th, I know that I will be hanging at the pool all day!
