Happy Fall Everyone! This week has been pretty low key for me. I had a bit of a cold, nothing a bit of hot chocolate and an episode of Downton Abbey can’t cure…haha! I’ve been struggling a bit with direction and inspiration for my blog and social. Even though I’ve been working with my IG for years, sometimes I feel as though I can get lost a bit, and am not feeding my brand the proper creative material it needs…we’ve all been there, am I right? So, today, I’m sharing a few creative and inspiring things to chew on for the weekend!
Classic Style by Kate Schelter – I just started this book this week, and I can’t put it down. Kate has really got me thinking about what my style truly is, what pieces define it, what are the classics that I can’t live without.
The Sweater that Looks like a Hudson Bay Blanket – L.L. Bean just debuted this sweater as part of their Signature Collection, and I cannot love it more! I adore chunky sweaters, and mock neck sweaters, and the fact that this one looks exactly like a Hudson Bay Blanket is just the icing on the cake!
Banana Republic x Olivia Palermo – This new Banana Republic collab is perfection. It has a very “old-world” “Downton Abbey” vibe going on that I adore. I love the fact that the whole collection looks so expensive without breaking the bank! My favorites are this dress, this dress, this blouse, this blouse, and this skirt. *die*
Abby Capalbo – Abby is an editorial stylist, and has always had one of my favorite Instagram accounts! Her photos are always chalked-full of inspiration, and I cannot wait to see all that she has in store for Fall! BTW, her golden retriever, Otto, is just the cutest!
Caramel vs. Candy vs. Toffee Apples – Above is a photo of the delicious caramel apples my mom and I made together last Sunday. Since we’ve both only ever had caramel apples, my mom came up with the brilliant idea of trying out all three this Fall. So far the caramel has been amazing, and I cannot wait to try the candy and the toffee soon! I think I’ll have to do a posting about the differences between all three at some point. Stay tuned for that. Meanwhile, here is the recipe we used to make the caramel apples!
