Saturdays At Shop This: Oh Hello Autumn!

{ Via: Free People }

I know, I know. Saying goodbye to Summer is not easy. But as the song goes.....for every season there is a reason.....so I say let's let go of what we can't change, and find the good in the season ahead of us. And you have to admit, cozy sweaters, new boots, the Fall colors and cuddling are all pretty fabulous. Here are a few more good things about the new season.

Henri Bendel has several new candle flavors. I spent a little time "sniffing" them at my HB store. The Salted Caramel has a delicious aroma of burnt sugar, buttered maple, tonka bean, bourbon, oranges, creme brulee, and more. Good enough to eat, but not over powering. It's your perfect Fall hostess gift.

When you think of Fall, one knows that Halloween can't be far away. Find inspiration for elevating your own spooky holiday this year on the Etsy Blog.

If you can believe, I absolutely love accessorizing my Fall outfits with tights. Specifically with Wolford Tights, as they couldn't be more comfortable. This season's new styles are better than ever. And am I the only person in the world that
wears tights under pants?

In case you are wondering...... my favorite find for Fall is the Sequin Boyfriend Blazer from the Michael Kors Collection. It's crazy expensive, and almost sold out! If I win the lottery, this will be mine. Find it at Neiman Marcus and at Michael Kors.

Pencil Skirts are the shape of Fall. I have found that they are very flattering. A good entree into this style is J. Crew's black crepe skirt at Nordstrom. It's less than a $100 and everything a pencil skirt should be....including 
below the knee. But that leather style is also beyond good!

I hope that the sun shines brightly on your life this weekend.

Recipe Tin Eats

Apple Toffee Crunch Cake
The author says it best: "It is moist and flavorful with a bit of crunch and touch of spice. It plays off our favorite fall flavors, a variety of textures, and even showcases a spectacular toffee drip!" Don't be intimidated by that toffee drip. I recently watched 8 year olds do it on the Food Network. We can do it.

Counter Chic: Back In The Kitchen

With the days getting shorter and the nights longer, it seems that I am back in the kitchen, more than usual.  This scenario will continue as the autumn holidays unfold. The heart of our homes should be a place to gather, cook, and entertain....with style. What kind of kitchen keeper are you?  Do you like to have all of your utensils handy, or organized and put away? Some of us like to display everything and others like a chic clean counter. I fall into the latter. Here's inspiration on how to get that look. Many of these items also make stylish
 host gifts, too. 

Band Glass Pitcher
Simple and sophisticated. This perfect pitcher goes from counter to dining table with style.

Michael Aram Cocoon Lights
Shine a light on your chic counters or islands with these fabulous handcrafted pendants. 
Gracious Style

Handmade Gold-Dipped Dinnerware
Delightfully fanciful and so very interesting. 

Dualit Toasters
With a toaster this luxe, I may be tempted to leave it on the counter. But if gold isn't your thing, you'll love all of the other haute hues. And besides just looking good, it is one heck of a terrific toaster.

Nambe Coffee Pod Carousel
Those little K cups are handy but not very good looking. Now you can turn your K-cup display into an artful, yet functional, piece for your counter top. Shop the collection at
Neiman Marcus

Entertaining Kitchen
Cooking is theater with the MacKenzie-Childs new Entertaining Kitchen Collection. Chic checks and fab Fall florals are the stars of the show in your own kitchen.

Stagg Pour Over Kettle
I love mine. Besides good looking, you get the perfect pour every time. And it comes with its' own thermometer so your coffee can be at the exact temperature you want. 
I use mine for tea water.
A + R

Shades Of Black & White
Sleek and sexy. the beautiful pearled flatware by Capdeco and Carrara collection by Vista Alegre are a winning combination. for your black and white kitchen!
Alchemy Fine Home

KitchenAid Limited Edition
My grey and black kitchen would faint if I introduced a soft color as shown above. But the girly girl in me does think it is beautiful. That hob nail bowl is not available everywhere. You'll find this style and many others on sale at 
Williams Sonoma 

Jonathan Adler Muse Bowl
Do you start your day with lemon water? Look into it, and store your lemons in this fun bowl. Actually it is good for anything. A very chic and clever gift, too.

The Ivalo Collection
Understated elegance. These are great and certainly not your Grandma's canisters. Use them for storing and serving.

TVS America
 These pans are perfect for those of you with beige and white kitchens. Made in Italy, this cookware is well designed and affordably priced.  Plus take 20% off with

Wedding Wedding: The City Hall Bride

{ Via: 100 Layer Cake }

Not every girl dreams of floating down a long church aisle. Every bride has her own idea of what her wedding should be. For some, like Carrie Bradshaw and her Mr. Big, City Hall just seems like a good idea. There's less pomp, ceremony, and fuss. Some couples just would rather not deal with the whole shebang. The wedding day is special wherever it takes place, and the bride will want to look her best. This post features downtown looks for 
the daytime bride.

Lake Studio Pleated Maxi
So chic in fluid crepe. Wear it as styled in the photo. The gloves add the panache.

This beautiful blouse can be worn over any of the sleeveless dresses in your closet. It will transform the simplest dress into something special.  See the line at Half Penny London and Net-a-Porter

Ruffle Off The Shoulder Dress
Why not wear black? Most of the people in the Court House will be wearing the same. This dress is special enough for your special 
day downtown.
Halston Heritage

Tadashi Shoji
Beautiful from the Spring 2019 collection. I'm over the moon about the chic celestial print. See it HERE and then shop the current collection at
Neiman Marcus

From the Fall 2018 Ready To Wear Collection. It's my favorite of this edit.
