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!)

is it just me or is keri russell totally crushing it lately? I mean really?! from formal wear to casual street style this lady always seems to look effortlessly lovely and put together with just the right sexy edge. i love the way she tosses a bit of leather into outfits you wouldn’t expect (a material i clearly need more of in my life) and did i mention our mutual love for dresses with pockets? hello! kindred spirits anyone?

meanwhile, i’m currently struggling to see my toes and mostly just fantasizing about the prospect of fabulous skinny jeans and slinky dresses…soon, right?

here’s hoping there’s a keri-inspired, post-baby shopping spree in my not-so-distant future!

we were headed out for dinner the other night and was running a bit late(of course). i started rummaging through my drawers for a fresh, pregnancy-friendly outfit, which is getting harder and harder to come by in my closet, when i happened upon the simplest combination…

white on white!

i threw on a fitted white tank and some distressed white jean shorts and, voilĂ ! i felt instantly refreshed! the bright whites looked great against my early summer tan and, surprisingly, the light monochrome effect made my growing bump feel quite elegant and refined. i finished the look with a bright green head scarf and a dab of coral lipstick and raced out the door! i felt great all evening and i guess a few other folks thought so too since i received some lovely compliments from my husband, toddler, and a few random strangers to boot! and, major bonus: i somehow managed to avoid spilling any of the bbq sauce from my massive burger on myself!

it was truly an amazing night.

looking to give white on white a whirl? here are a few looks i can’t wait to try next…

sooooooo, we’re headed to mexico in less than a month! ben’s family recently ‘won’ a trip to cancun in a silent auction and generously offered to take us along for the ride! woohoo!

though we’ve flown quite a bit over the last four years, this will be Q’s first trip outside the country. hello, passports! we’re so excited to kick up our feet with a few cocktails and just lounge about on the beach for a whole week. and the best part…we’ll have enthusiastic grandparent babysitters at the ready! what could be better?!

in the spirit of pre-trip anticipation i’ve been daydreaming of a few things here and there-namely, embroidered dresses, tacos, sandy toes and heaps of crystal clear blue water…

25 days and counting! yahoo!!!!

there’s something just so right about black.

i’m not talking a bit here or there, bag and shoes kind of dark but rather that all the way, head to toe, bad ass kind of…noir.

i’ve always been a color kind of girl, liberal on the yellow. loving on neon. orange? yes, please! but this fall i’m feeling inspired to plunge deep into the dark side. nails, leather skinnies, big slouchy dark sweaters…really go for it. what do you think?

perhaps all this perpetual sunshine is getting to me….

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

chinchilly

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

cindy joseph began her modeling career at 49, giving us all a bit of perspective on youth, aging, and the importance of basking in the the inherent pleasure and joys of life. i’ve posted her inspiring and refreshing interview below. it is definitely worth a read…

i have a serious crush on natalia alaverdian.

this sassy little harper’s bazaar executive is all over the place lately from fashion blogs to fashion weeks. paris, milan, london. excuse me, where do i sign up for her job again? i cannot get enough of her sweet, fun, and oh-so-awesome style.

despite that fact that i’m currently and seriously coveting both her work and wardrobe, i’d also like to think that if we met we’d probably be best friends, have a lovely chat over coffee, maybe share a cigarette, definitely eat a croissant and, in general, have an awesome time galavanting around milan in 5 inch heels.

anyway, i just adore her.
