Morris & Co. x H&M

I've forever loved William Morris' prints and textiles since first learning about them in high school art class and have dreamt of covering the walls of my future home's library in Pimpernel print ever since. I might be a few years away from making that a reality, but for now I'll settle for wearing some of Morris & Co.'s beloved patterns, thanks to their collaboration with H&M. This won't be this collection's last appearance on my site - I may have gone a bit overboard on hoarding these pieces!

Wardrobe Essential: Leather Shorts

Leather shorts were the autumn staple I never knew I needed. I've currently got my eyes on this pair, but figured I'd test drive a high street version for a few months before pulling the trigger. As it turns out, the cost-per-wear of the originals would have been about $5 by now, as I've been wearing these Zara dupes with everything from lace blouses, to chunky knits and turtleneck sweaters... and we've only had fall weather for about a week! Since I'll forever regret not buying this pair when I had the chance oh-so-many years ago, for now this paper bag fit will have to do.

Friday Morning in the West Village

I spent the weekend in New York for work, and I know that it was a busy one, because I didn't have the chance to post about it - not even on Instagram Stories! It all feels like a bit of a whirlwind, but I was able to try some new restaurants (I'm still dreaming of the crab toast at ABC Kitchen), buy my husband's Christmas gift after an appointment on the Upper East Side, and make it home in time to spend Thanksgiving Monday curled up next to him on the couch.

End of Summer Style

Fall has finally arrived, and just in time. I was beginning to tire of my usually beloved collection of summer dresses and starting to dream of cozy knits and light layers. While things are still warm enough to go without a jacket, I'm breaking into my seasonal transition closet. I love this Club Monaco dress with bare legs right now, but have plans to wear it with knee-high burgundy boots in a few weeks, and opaque tights and black ankle boots when the snow comes.
