I’m Loving . . .


Something I hope to have in our home one day is a piano – I’m working on a home right now that has one and it has me craving one so badly.

Camel and black are my go to colors this winter – I love the combination together. It’s just so classic!

The Orange in London

I’ve found so many hidden gems (like this) in London while I was there this fall – obviously this means I need to go back for a visit!

Hair style

To be completely honest, I do my hair every day, but I always find myself putting it up an hour later. It’s probably because I’m running around all day. That’s why this chic bun might be my new look.

Moroccan Details

I love the combination of this Moroccan rug and Womb chair. The two together are perfect.

Paris in the winter.

Only a month until I leave for Istanbul and Paris! I’ve been counting down the days and can’t wait to get inspired by both cities. If you have any suggestions for either I would love to hear them.

What are you loving this week?

    I try to wear my hair down once a week but the only way it stays down is if I don’t bring a hair tie! What fun trips you have ahead of you!

    Wow I’m lovin this post!!! – that bun looks effortless. Such a great winter shot of Paris – If you have the time try to spend a day or half day at Versailles you wont regret it it is awe inspiring! xo

      Thanks Jessica! I’m in love with this bun – giving it a whirl tomorrow. I’ll definitely be spending some time in Versailles. Appreciate the tip!

    I’m loving the Moroccan rug trend as well! Great picks 🙂

    1. Caitlin

      Glad I’m not alone. Love them!

    Maybe I can get my bun to look like that one. Maybe?! These pictures make me happy. Especially the first and last. Oh, simple beauties.

    1. Caitlin

      I’m attempting the bun tomorrow – let’s hope it comes out this chic. Thanks for commenting!

    ISTANBUL: my husband is from there and we are there every year. So here are my tips 😉


    Hotel and best view for a coffee, tea or cocktail
    *say hello to Alex Varlik from me (hes the owner)

    Small chain,an all the hotels are very classy and unique

    Cafes & Restaurants:
    For Dinner with a view: Ulus 29

    For Breakfast lunch or dinner:
    *Make sure to order a mint lemonade with apples here.

    Dinner with a small party vibe/people watching:

    Another tip if you have time, go for a relaxing day to Suada Beach Club directly on the Bosphorus, so you have a perfect view of asia and europe 😉


    Only a few tips, but i hope this helps a little deciding where to go, its such a big city.

    Greetings from a Georgia girl living in Germany with her turkish husband…;-D Melissa

      Melissa – thank you so so much for all of these recommendations! All of them look amazing. We rented an apartment but I love both of these hotels! If you have any other recs please let me know. Shopping recs would be amazing!

    Have you considered camel and gray? It’s a much softer, more sophisticated look. To me anyway, camel and black is good but camel and gray is perfect.

    1. Caitlin

      Love both camel and gray – I wore that a ton in November/December. That’s why I’ve been switching it up with camel and black. Both are amazing together.

  7. Allie Middleton

    Your taste is impeccable!!! I seriously can’t get enough of it!

    1. Caitlin

      Thanks Allie – that means so much!

    Oh, how I love Paris… Sandro is seriously cheaper in Paris than in the US — make sure you ask for your tax form so that you can get the nearly 20% VAT back at the airport no matter where you go shopping. It helps a lot!

    Paris by Mouth food walking tours are an incredible way to see smaller, lesser known spots for delicious food.

    1. Caitlin

      Thanks for the tip! I’ll make sure to make note of that with any large purchases, which I’m sure will happen.

    It’s all about the chignon. Like you, I do my hair each day, but I feel I actually look best with it pulled up and back. A messy chignon or top knot is my favorite way to “undo” my daily “do” in the afternoons. After all, a girl can’t help but feel glamorous this way.

    Hi ! I’m french and in my opinion, MERCI is the best concept store in Paris (111, boulevard Beaumarchais, Paris III – http://www.merci-merci.com/fr/) to make shopping of course but also drink a tea… It’s a really adorable place where I go everytime I am in Paris.
    Have a nice trip in Europe (and excuse me for my english…)

    You are going to *love* the markets in Istanbul! Paris goes without saying…living vicariously.

    Hi there Caitlin!
    I live in Paris and here are some places that you might like:
    – I agree with Marie about Merci concept store ( and the cafe there has the most amzing floor to ceiling wall of books!)
    – Depending on where you’re staying here are the top 5 Cafe shops to sip at – Cafe Lomi, KB cafe shop, Ten belles, Fondation, HolyBelly
    – For shopping – you’ll love the Marais, all the Parisian brands are there: Sandro, Maje, the Kooples, Comtoir de Cotoniers, BA&SH – also try Bimba y Lola ( they are spanish). Freep Star has the best vintage – but you have to be really brave to dig dig dig. I once came away with a Lanvin dress! 🙂
    – to stay best to book an apart to get a real pasisian feel with Airbnb or Feels like home in Paris.
    – If you go see the Sacre Couer, there is a APC stock store next door at 18 rue Andre del sarte
    75018 Paris
    – ALSO – be very wary of pickpockets at all the metro stops, I can’t tell you how many times, people get pickpocket at the touristy stops.
    – if you want to hang out one night – go to Chez Jeanette for drinks and dinner. A bit dirty but nothing beats the vibe.
    – L’Artisan has great cocktails
    – Le floreal and PNY have great burgers
    – You must take walk down Rue Montorguel – try the salads at Au Rocher Cancal or a drink at Le Marie Stuart.
