fridgg apple fritters

holy apple fritters! i'm feeling extra jazzed this weekend because i've got some fun plans for fall starting with a visit from my parents next week! it's their first time coming out since we moved to new york so it's going to be a treat. we've got plans for shopping, the book of mormon, neighborhood tours and lots of tasty meals. i've got a fun little outing planned in brooklyn tomorrow followed by 24 hours of happy dance cleaning. but for now ... it's friday: go play!

what i'm reading // how to be parisian wherever you are

i'd been looking forward to this book release for a while after being tempted by the book's instagram feed. i needed something fun and stylish to top off my summer and i devoured this book in one night! it's full of little tips ("always look as if you are gazing at the sunset"), recipes (pot-au-feu, anyone?) and stories on how to live like a true parisian. trust me, these chic frenchies have got you covered. 

dream closet // anna karina

the moment I set eyes on anna karina, i was girl crushing so hard. bardot's hot, but i'd choose karina any day. she's the epitome of girly, scheming, sweet and clever as the star in many of Jean Luc Godard's films (whom she also married.) her ability to pull off a red sweater and tights combo is nothing short of impressive. her simple, adorable style in a woman is a woman gets better with every scene. i imagine her wardrobe is stocked with peter pan collars, vivid reds and some wicked plaid

dress // bow headband (similar) // apron // flats // red sweater // skirt // heels // collar // trench // hat // brown sweater // eyeliner // plaid pants

happy heart // week 48

little story: this summer I was having some trouble with my neck and shoulder pain. when we came back from our honeymoon, my mom had very kindly done me a solid and bought me new, appropriately firm pillows. with my bed now fully loaded, I started to sleep much better and was relieved of horrible aches. 

hot tip: check your pillows, replace when needed. best sleep ever.
