My Seasonal Allergies Are Only Improved By Cuddles From This OneOh, my friends. My allergies have really gotten the best of me this season. I'm an itchy-sneezy-watery-eyed mess. The only saving grace of locking myself inside to hide from the allergies is that Frankie is around to snuggle while I work! Don't worry, we're still enjoying our mornings at the dog park - even if they are making me want to die a little
Because Sometimes Not Everything Has To Be Pink
....I can't believe I just said that, either. My go to for florals is all pinks-and-lilacs-and-pastels-in-bloom, but lately I've been taking more inspiration from local foliage on my weekly homemade bouquets. Can you believe I bought all of these from a bodega?! My favorites are the red and firey-orange spikey flowers - though I have no idea what they are!! (A google search says the one on the left is "Leucospermum," but I don't know how to pronounce that, so.)
Did you hear?! I've collaborated with BaubleBar on their Mystery Boxes! Included in the $50 box is the above necklace (usually retails for $42) and two additional mystery items handpicked by me. Check it out!
Seasonally Inspired Treats
After spending a morning catching up with my favorite photographer-wunderkind Lydia, we popped into Lafayette, where I indulged in a much-needed cappuccino and took the above jack-o-lantern macaron home with me. I can't get enough of fall flavors! A recent trip to Trader Joe's sent me home with everything pumpkin. What are your favorite foods this time of year??
Shopbop's 25% Off Friends & Family Sale
I confess: I did take advantage of Shopbop's 25% Off Friends & Family Sale, it was hard not to when it meant 25% off items that usually never go on sale! Just use the code "INTHEFAMILY25" to have the discount applied to your shopping cart. The sale ends this Sunday!!

BHLDN NYC Pop-Up
I unfortunately found out about this on the later side, but today is the last day of BHLDN's NYC Pop-Up shop. Even though a wedding isn't on the horizon (I mean, I'm not engaged - but I do think a wedding is eventually on the horizon), my bride-to-be-BFFs (cough, cough, Margot and Stephanie) have me in a total wedding-inspired-frenzy, filled with tulle and fondant and gold-leaf-everything. I've been known to spend just a little bit of time obsessing over everything on the BHLDN site, so I'm hoping to hustle to their Upper East Side Pop-Up Shop TODAY and get my wedding-lust on. Anyways, you don't need to get married to appreciate these amazing gilded flutes!
Located At: Anthroplogie, UES. 1230 Third Avenue between 71st and 72nd Streets.
I'm having some major wanderlust this week. After having our January-Euro-trip-dreams crushed this week (it's okay, there are 11 more months next year to take advantage of), I've been completely living vicariously through Alicia of Cheetah is the New Black and Bree of DesignLoveFest. Alicia has been all over Europe (most recently Prague, Paris, and London - and off to Italy she goes!) and Bree's last European stop was in Venice. The pictures are all so swoonworthy!
Have you met Aslan Creampuff yet? He is Grace's new furry bundle of love, and I'm obsessed with him!
My girl Jessica at Tiny Red Shoes (did you know she interned for me and the fashion closet at Marie Claire?!) is stealing my heart with her all-black-everything look in her latest post. I know she's trying to look all moody and goth, but I can't get her sweet smile and demeanor out of my mind. She's the best!
Christina of Profresh Style celebrated her blogaversary this week! Even though she's been kidnapped cross country to LA and I miss her (!!!), I love that she's maintained blogging in her new home.
Kellie of And I Get Dressed posted that amazing green tweet coat again and is giving me all the feelings of jealousy. Do you ever totally regret not buying something? Sigh!
