anyone else jonesing for some cool weather? perhaps it’s the fact that we were basically catapulted from the lake (land of blissfully cool rainy mornings and campfires) into the crazy oppressive heat of august in the desert…OR perhaps it’s the fact that my 8 months pregnant thighs are finally touching! (ugh). either way, i could really go for a chilly autumn morning, a long run and my old skinny jeans.

while cooler weather is sadly still a couple of months away here in ps, it never hurts to daydream a bit, right? here are just a few of the early fall, post-pregnancy items i’m dreaming of this morning…

a cool military-inspired jacket

sleeveless sweaters (finally a place where these adorable fashion anomalies can actually be worn!)

we’ve just returned from another wonderful trip to the lake. this time we surprised my mom for her 60th birthday! we’ve been scheming for months and i’m happy to report the surprise went off without a hitch! we spent the remainder of the week eating cake, picking pumpkins (and grapes!), drinking great wine, jumping in leaves, and even managed to squeeze in a few crisp boat rides around the lake. it was perfection.

while our desert home is lovely and sunny and blissfully warm 354 days a year (i know, right?!), there’s just something about autumn in new york.

here are some fun shots from the trip.

enjoy! xk

ps. stay tuned later this week for my favorite recipes to inspire those cozy feelings of fall (no matter what temperature it is where you call home).

hello all.

after what now seems like a very long hiatus (was my last post really august 20th?) well, anyway, i’m back! and just in time for my favorite season…

the weather is finally starting to turn cooler here in PS and i cannot help but daydream of roasted butternut squash and freshly baked pumpkin pie (done and done).

let’s all ease back into this with a little afternoon spin, autumn edition…

fall is in the air

pretty flats

cozy evenings in call for this, this or these !

seasonal cocktail

pretty fall table , desert style

yes, please

Q and i have been watching a lot of peter pan recently and i’m secretly petitioning for this halloween costume…

however, i’m almost positive he’ll request something infinitely cooler (and depressing) given his recent obsession with this dude, which will undoubtedly end up looking more like this! yikes.

happy fall! X

it’s been cool and rainy here at the lake.

rain like this always makes me think of paris. and nothing looks better on a rainy day in paris than a little red dress…

ps. oui oui .

i know, i know, it’s barely august, but i just can’t seem to keep my mind off of fall fashion. maybe it’s the secret fear of missing out on those cool east coast october days. bright blue skies and pumpkins. the crunch of leaves. crisp mornings and hot apple cider.

a timeless trench? anyone?

these last few weeks at the lake have felt more like september than july and, since I’m headed back to steamy PS in little over a week, perhaps i’m already getting a bit nostalgic for those long, bright autumn days.

so, just for fun, here are a few of the pieces i’ve been pining for/already bought-i’m talking to you, coach trench, still patiently waiting in my closet. sigh. and hey, a few of these might just work for those occasional ‘cool’ mornings in PS. there are cool mornings in PS, right?

here’s hoping.

(aforementioned timeless trench, cool pumps, a cozy wrap, stripes and ‘bows, a light blazer, high waisted herringbone)
