Liz Caan in Ivy & Piper

I'm totally loving this feature of Liz Caan's home and studio in the latest issue of Ivy & Piper...

The mirrored chest and pops of orange are SO good...

 Cutest boy's room EVER.

 I'm always a sucker for chevron...just picked out the chevron rug from West Elm for Shannon's living room.  I'm loving this runner in navy...paired perfectly with the art, striped chair and that gorgeous lamp.

 Insane piece on the love love.  Also coveting the pink velvet stools, lamp, fur blanket, pillows, oh and her life. ;)

 Yellow benches?  Yes, please!

 Can't go wrong with a little zebra wallpaper...

Gorgeous little studio!

Sweet Dreams

I popped onto the ZGallerie site this morning to check out their home accessories for one of my projects and of course couldn't help but swoon over everything.  I've been obsessed with them since I lived just blocks away from their store in San Francisco.  Apparently, I like to torture myself by looking at things that will absolutely NOT be mine anytime in the near future, like this yummy mirrored buffet that I think I neeeeeeed so bad but have absolutely no use nor space for.  Anyway, once I got over the buffet, I came across the most amazing headboard EVER.  Turns out they have a whole collection of new ones and they are oh-so-good...

Favorites for Fall

It's officially fall and that means time to transition your home and your wardrobe to incorporate cozy pieces, rich in color and warmth.  My favorites for home include a brown furry blanket, which I'm literally attached to whenever I'm lounging at home, as well as a wonderful scented candle.  I also have an apothecary jar that I fill according to the season, so it's usually cranberries at this time of year.  My go-to pieces for my wardrobe this time of year are of course a great pair of riding boots, skinny pants (cords, denim, leggings), a cozy knit sweater, a cape and statement accessories in muted colors.

Sunshiny Day


 We had some intense rain here yesterday, which lasted all night and through the morning.  I don't mind the rain when I can cozy up inside, but when it affects my ability to get things done it is such a drain.  Plus, the rain is a total inconvenience when you have a 10 month old puppy who wants/needs to get out and play.  Thank goodness the sun is finally peeking through the clouds, but these sunny images are also doing a pretty good job at brightening my day.

What I Wore: Wool Mini Style

I recently snagged this adorable mini from H&M.  It is seriously so insanely good...perfect camel color for fall.  I'm planning on pairing it with everything from tights and pumps to riding boots and pointy toe flats.  I tested it out Monday at work with my black riding boots, a cream silk shirt with black piping and simple accessories.  Here's the look...
