It has been a very blustery, rainy and grey few days here and honestly I don’t mind. I’ve been able to get so much work done and I love getting cozy and sitting in front of the pellet stove. Last night I went to an event with Eileen Fisher to speak on a panel about sustainability and circular design in fashion. I’ve always been a fan of the brand but didn’t realize just how much they’ve done over the years. They are pioneers and leaders in the sustainable fashion space, and I loved hearing them talk about how they think of the second, third, and fourth life of a garment when it’s being made. Looking forward to chilling out and making some of the recipes I shared yesterday, yum. Wishing all of you a great weekend.

If you’ve been waiting for Hatch to have a sale (like I have) it’s 20% off on select items right now with code FALLFOR20. The Jo sweater is included, and I also love the waffle turtleneck and the waffle dress.
I was too young to go to Lilith Fair and I’m having major FOMO about it. But I mean the 90s are totally having a comeback, so maybe there’s hope for a revival? (C)
I picked out a few pieces from Eileen Fisher as part of my collaboration with them and decided to go with winter coats since I need things that will fit me come December/January when I’m 8-9 months pregnant. This brushed wool coat is so beautiful and drapey and will fit me throughout pregnancy and beyond (runs big I got x/xs). I also got their recycled nylon puffer coat (xs in cassis) and it’s roomy without looking big and bulky. Will definitely keep me cozy all winter. (J)

Really late to the Jo Malone fragrance party, but a super stylish French friend of mine wore her Pomegranate Noir scent the whole time I was with her and I had to buy a bottle when I got back. It smells complex and has hints of a men’s cologne, I love that in a perfume. (C)
Sexism is alive and well. Why the scrutiny over Warren’s pregnancy discrimination story proves it. (The year this happened pregnancy discrimination was also NOT ILLEGAL.)

Grace really wants a caned bed, now I think I want one too, haha. (J)
