The Sweater I Can’t Stop Wearing

I know, I know. There’s nothing crazy about this black sweater. In fact, it’s pretty much as basic as it gets! But I can’t stop wearing it. I have lost track of the number of times I’ve reached for it in my closet since I ordered it. I have two black cashmere sweaters (ones more…

Three Apple Recipes to Try

I’ve always loved picking apples. Being out in the suburbs (and closer to the orchards!) has only made me lean into this season even more. Having a big kitchen island to spread out to bake with all the apples makes it even better. This year, I made three different recipes that have been perfect for…

Organizing My Small Closet

Our house was built in the 30s, so the closets are quite small. There is actually a ton of storage throughout the house between built-ins and the basement (I’m sure to compensate for the small closets!), so it’s actually not a huge deal. Except in the master bedroom. There are two closets, but they’re both…

NEVER SAY NEVER

I recently purchased something (just to see if they suited me) that I said I would never buy. Like, I’ve publicly mentioned that they weren’t me. But, hey, I’m human. And sometimes I’m simply wrong. I bought over the knee boots. I don’t know what triggered the switch, but here I am owning and loving these…

Diary No. 17

You know what I love most about these posts? It forces me to reflect on all the fun and good over two weeks. When I’m doing this, I don’t even think about a project that stressed me out. Or that difficult phone call that I lost sleep over. Or a mistake that I made. I just…

On My Radar

After taking a red-eye on Sunday night, I was feeling a little off at the beginning of the week. I took a 30-minute nap right when I got home around 6 am and then just hit the ground running for the day. By 10 pm, I was so confused as to why I felt like…

Tweed Mules

You know what I realized about this outfit when I was cropping photos? I posted a nearly identical outfit three and a half years ago. And by “nearly identical,” I mean identical. It just goes to show that sticking to the classics pays off in the long run. I like that I can look back…

My New Espresso Maker

I gave up using disposable coffee cups this year. I’ve only used eight TOTAL for 2019, seven of which were from miscommunications at cafés, where they either forgot or didn’t hear that I wanted a drink “to stay.” To be honest, I LOVE it and it’s really been such a positive experience beyond the direct…

Fall Mood Board

I did this last year and it was one of my favorite posts to put together. I don’t really do this for other seasons, although maybe I should? Since the weather has been all over the place and less than inspiring (more like “sweat weather” instead of “sweater weather”), I’m relying on the ~idea~ of…
