I can’t believe Monday is already here – this weekend went by entirely too fast! The past few days I was able to catch up on all the NYFW shows, all of which make me want to skip over winter and jump straight into spring. Quality time at home was ever so lovely – making brunch, tiding up the apartment and just being plan old lazy. What did all of you do this weekend?
Here are a few of my favorites from this week . . . I couldn’t and still can’t put down the September issue of British Vogue – it’s filled with fall fashion that has me dreaming up outfits for the chilly months ahead. I’m in L-O-V-E with my the necklace that came in the mail from Joslyn – she and her girlies are uber talented. I’ve been wearing my favorite leopard Kate Spade flats from last fall almost every single day – they are my go-to shoe for every occasion. This moleskine notepad goes with me everywhere just in case inspiration comes while walking around the city or I’m sitting in a cafe. And lastly, I took a little trip to Birch to pick up some blooms for the house that make it smell oh-so-good.
Hope all of you have a lovely week ahead. I hope it goes by fast because we’re off on a little vacation later this week!

I hope all of you had a fabulous long weekend – it was a lovely one here. After a stunning Saturday spent in Napa, followed by Sunday at the Nob Hill spa with girlfriends (the zen room was heavenly), and Monday at home, I wish the weekend hadn’t gone by so fast . . .
These are a few things that got me incredibly inspired this past week: one of my very favorite design books by Leslie Williamson - if you don’t own it I highly recommend it (the photos and writing are impeccable). A vintage necklace and Moroccan slippers that I bought a few years ago from the flea market. Some delicious chocolates we’ve been savoring all weekend. And lastly, a new treasure for the house that was gifted to me from a dear friend (he saw me feature it on my blog). I’m in love with this new addition to my Asiter collection.
Hope all of you have a lovely week ahead. I have a feeling it’s going to be a good one for all of us!

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was quite busy traveling to Sacramento for a bridal shower weekend. It was nice to spend quality time with girlfriends, which doesn’t happen as often as I would like since we all have hectic schedules. But I’m happy to be home – the fog welcomed me with open arms as I drove back into the city, and I realized how much I love the cool fog. The 100 degree heat this weekend was a little too much for me.
Putting together my inspiration board together this week was so much fun because I was inspired by interiors, fashion and even beauty. First, I came across the Design*Sponge summer newspaper at Birch in Hayes Valley (try to find it in your hood – it’s a fabulous read!). A few more items that gave my brain a burst of inspiration – my vintage Pierre Hardy clutch that I found in a small consignment shop in Napa, one of my favorite jewelry finds from the Alameda Flea market, a few new Estée Lauder products that are making my skin glow (the night repair is unbelievable), the verbena smell engulfing my apartment because of this candle (from Birch) and lastly, my Astier elephant sits on my nightstand and is filled with my most prized treasures (a gift from my mom that I wake up to every morning).
What has been inspiring you lately? Something in your house? Around your neighborhood? I’d love to know!
Cheers to having a fabulous week!

The lovely Mrs. Katie and I meet up for lunch every few weeks to catch up on our projects. We share advice on different dilemmas we’re having, brainstorm ideas and of course talk about fashion. This particular lunch date she was sporting a beautiful necklace by the one and only Margaret Elizabeth that caught my eye – I truly fell in love and I can’t get it out of my head. A true sign that it needs to be the newest addition to my closet. If the crush continues I might have to cave in and treat myself!
