I fell head over heels for this sweet Etsy shop after picking up one of their tassel garlands for the holidays. So cute!
Aren’t they adorable? Perfect for a wedding (or New Year’s Eve!) too.
This morning in my inbox: Bretons and Leopard and Pleated Skirt fashion…
these are a few of my favorite things!
A fun mix of classics and fashion forward, as J Crew does so well. A bit of brights and a bit of autumn notes. Just wild about those blue shoes!
And of course, it’s SWEATER SEASON!

If you love a creative spirit, bright colors, wit and laughter, you’ll love Nicola Rowlands’ Etsy Shop.
Her greeting cards are the cutest, textiles just fabulous, and a handful of oddities I’m a bit obsessed with. I didn’t even realize how many of her beautiful creations I have until I went perusing through her shop again. Here are a few of my faves & some fun new ones!
Hee hee. The pocket manfriends crack me up.
I mean, at this point you know getting that bright pink box in the mail, filled with goodies, is basically my favorite ever… so many good ones this time. Per the usual :)
Always a winner! This box was full of goodies as usual. Some well known brands’ new items I knew would be great! And a few fun new brands too.
–St. Tropez Gradual Tan Shower Lotion– I knew the name, knew the brand was known to be the best in self-tanning, but had doubts about this product. And I was definitely wrong. It’s really easy to use, goes on evenly and gives a perfect glow. And just out of the shower feels like the perfect time to get a little self-tanning done. I’ll be working on this gradual tan for our upcoming Vegas trip!
–Rene Furterer Lissea Leave-in Smoothing Fluid– My hair is so fine and straight already, I tend not to use products like this. But it did leave my hair shiny and not feeling too weighed down. I imagine this would work great for someone whose hair has a bit more texture.
–Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Exfoliant– LOVE Dr. Brandt products and this was no exception. Super fine scrubbers and calming/healing ingredients make this my favorite manual exfoliant yet! My skin felt super smooth but not overworked. I will definitely be buying this.
–OPI Nail Lacquer Venice Collection: Amore at the Grand Canal– OPI is always my go-to for reasonably priced, quality polish. And this was no exception. A great classic red, with slightly deeper tones. Perfect for heading into fall.
–LAQA & Co. Cheeky Lip Tints– This went on super smooth and light. Loved the texture and it is the perfect on-the-go cheek color (the shade was a bit too light for me for lip). I keep it in my purse for a little extra color in the afternoon!
It’s here! It’s here! Weather is cooling, leaves are turning, and it’s time for fall fashion! I love the high, the low, and all the accessibly in-between. And this year, I’m really feeling olive. And all it’s lovely, lovely complimentary shades.
Skirts and sweaters are definitely my thing.
For a few more favorites:
What about you? What are your dreams and must-haves for fall?
I’ve been seriously crushing on this hoop art lately! And Etsy has quite the plethora. Super sweet as a stand alone, fun as a little collection, or a great idea for a housewarming gift!
Knitting was my first crafting attempt a while back, but I could never quite pick it up, but this might have the combination of art & math for my left brain to try. In the mean time, I’ll be supporting lovely artists like these! xoxo.
