Classic Pairings

001

Ray-Ban Sunnies, Zara Sweater, LC Lauren Conrad Skirt, Zara Boots, Loeffler Randall Purse, MK Watch, Vintage Necklace

There’s nothing better than a classic sweater, a mini skirt, and ankle boots for fall. I love wearing my summery skirts into the fall for as long as I can. And pairing a summery item with fall staples is the perfect way to transition with the weather still on the warmer side. 002 003 004 005 006 007

Sweet Moments

Beautiful roses for the coffee table with a stack of magazines

How is your week going? It’s certainly been a slow week, but I am appreciating the little things and I am looking forward to a lot of things happening in the next couple of months! I love this time of year when I get to enjoy pumpkin spiced lattes, visiting new stores (like bookstores), and the holidays that are coming up J. What are you most excited about during this time of year?002

Cool Colors

005Ray-Ban Sunglasses, JCP Blouse, Macy’s Jacket, Zara Pants & Heels, Rebecca Minkoff Bag

I love wearing colored denim year round, especially in the cooler months when it’s not so exciting as the spring and summer. These pants are certainly a favorite since they have a very sleek and tailored look to them; they can easily pair with a pair of sneakers and t-shirt or can be dressed up with heels and a button down blouse. However, I wanted to mix things up with a denim jacket and casual bag.002 003 006004

French Onion Soup

001French onion soup has always been a favorite of mine. And somehow when I went to Paris back in May, I managed to not have it when we were there; so making it myself seems to be the way to make up for it. It was about 10 years ago that my dad made this recipe one day, but the recipe just didn’t do the soup justice (and it was a random recipe that he had found); it came out with a taste that was just too strong. The only recipe that I would trust when attempting to make it myself, is from the Julia Child cookbook. Before my first taste, I was a little afraid of what would be the result, and I was pleasantly surprised! It was just as good as when I have had this soup in a restaurant, if not better!
