Happy Friday + Links

Happy Friday!  It’s been cool and crisp these last few days in the Bay Area, providing the perfect weather for outdoorsy activities like hiking or apple picking.  I’ll be heading to Vegas tomorrow for a quick trip to celebrate a friend’s milestone birthday.  What are you up to this weekend?

 

Some inspiration and links for your perusal:

Throwing a Halloween party this weekend?  Get into the mood with this cocktail starring black ice cubes.

Have you been catching all the sales that have been zipping by?  This week, Loeffler Randall is having a Friends and Family sale…Rider Bag, I’m looking at you!

Piperlime is giving 40% off Final Sale items…run, don’t walk!

The color-of-the-moment?  I am loving everything maroon, like this J.Crew ensemble featuring this herringbone topcoat.  I’m also bringing back a dark lip with YSL’s Rouge Pur Couture lipstick.

If you’re keeping it low-key this weekend, how about cozying up with some hot cocoa and this metallic knit throw from Pottery Barn?  I have one and it’s super soft!

I’m still working on my to-do list from this post and trying to master a few soups this season.  This coconut curry pumpkin soup looks delish…and makes a great starter for an autumn dinner party.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend!  xoxo

 

Cozy Chic

Cozy chic

Since yesterday’s post was so popular, I decided to do another Polyvore post!
Continuing on the “chic” posts from the last couple of days, I decided to put
together a cozy chic outfit that I could see myself wearing from day to night on
a Saturday.  What do you think?  Love the combination of a over-sized sweater
with skinny leather pants.  It’s a touch of cool that is easy to put together.
My favorite color palette of late is emerald with a rich, royal purple.
