inspiration for fall

People often ask, how do I stay inspired while shopping, two words….Fashion Week. Every fashion week I pay close attention to the shows, looking for common themes, trends and new silhouettes. I pin my favorite looks on pinterest, then refer to those pins when the season is upon us. To say I am looking forward to Fall 2013, is an understatement. The cooler weather and everything that comes along with it cannot get here soon enough. Here are the trends I will be on the lookout for when adding fall pieces to my closet.

So much to be thankful for this time of year. My family and I will be enjoying this view for the next several days and I am extremely thankful for a little r&r and time away from it all. Enjoy your holiday and thanks for reading!

weekend purchase

It’s nice to get out-of-town, especially when it involves visiting stores we are not fortunate enough to have here in New Orleans. This weekend included an extra long stop at Zara. I brought home several items, but I absolutely loved the skull scarves they had throughout the store. {These would make great gifts too; all under $30.}

baked brie & apple tarts

This time of year, baking is more a part of my weekly routine then ever. I came across this simple recipe, which turned out delicious and perfect for a chilly morning. The combination of the apple, brown sugar and brie is perfect! Not to mention the fluffy pastry.

short pants

I love the look of short pants {cropped pants or capris, whatever you want to call them}. Just something so visually interesting about the ankle showing. Wear a great heel or a casual bootie and the look is perfect! Here are some styles I currently adore.
