DAILY MUSINGS

musings | designlovefest

i had several small things that i felt like mentioning so i decided to do a cup of jo inspired round up of things i’ve been loving lately, so here it goes and i’d love to hear what you’re currently into cooking/wearing/reading/doing if you’re up for sharing! -joanie

this almond cake from Chez Panisse that my aunt told me to make, it exceeded my expectations in every way, made the whole thing in the food processor, make it!

headed to vermont this weekend to visit my sister, she moved to woodstock a little over a year ago and i have yet to visit. excited for farm life and also my 10pm post-flight solo dinner reservation here.

these mules that i’ve been wearing every single day, so comfortable.

i wasn’t keen on owning a juicer before now because i felt like they were such a hassle to clean, but after testing bri’s, i finally got one and i love it, and use it every day. celery and green apple is my go-to.

i know gua sha is all the rage right now but i started doing it regularly a few months ago and i love it. it really helps with jaw and neck tension. this is the one i use, highly recommend if you have any sort of jaw pain!

having an everlane moment right now, their fall basics are so good, these ribbed boots couldn’t be cooler, on my wish list!

i made a new years resolution to read 30 books this year, just started #21, “A Gentleman in Moscow” and i like it already.

i love this time of year, when you can start to feel fall in the air (yes, even in LA!) especially in the early mornings. i’m excited about the change of seasons and getting back to cooking, summer is always a dry spell for me. Alice B. Toklas roast chicken is one of my all time favorite things to make, it’s very straight forward and the orange and port really bring it to life.

and finally, the sweater selection at H&M right now is amazing, this ribbed turtleneck and this half zip sweater (among many other options!) are so cute.

if you’re on the east side of LA and looking for a good candy shop, i recently discovered tuesdays sweet shop and it’s a bulk candy dream.

GEORGE JOHN AND MICK

i’ve been more inspired by vintage men’s style lately. i was watching the george harrison documentary on netflix last night and was thoroughly enjoying all of the outfit inspiration. george has my heart, but john and mick had so many great looks that i had to add. the colors, pattern mixing, suits, scarfs, kimonos…i love!!

A FALL STYLE GUIDE!

fall style guide | designlovefest

fall is right around the corner and we’re starting to see all sorts of cozy pieces popping up (lots of teddy fleeces this year!). i find myself not being ready for the change in season and at the same time being drawn to coats and sweaters.  mustard is a color i’m very into for fall this year (like this tiered stain dress for under $100!) and i think it’s one we’re going to be seeing more of, burnt orange as well (also, get ready for lots of tie dye happening over the next year!) and corduroy, prairie dresses and the 70’s suit is still sticking around. i’ve also noticed more quilted jackets popping up which i’m personally a big fan of, they can be seen as too grandma for some but i think with the right cut they are chic. here are a few fall favorites i’ve been eyeing, i tried to pull lots of options at reasonable price points…

lots of neutrals with a splash of orange! white boots are all the rage right now. neutrals can seem boring to buy but they pack a big punch, something you reach for over and over again like that turtleneck sweater (and it’s $25!) i also love the pile jacket with the high collar, something about the collar makes a cozy jacket chic (it comes in black too!).

this coat comes in three great colors but i’m partial to the cream version, can’t say no to winter white!

a classic henley is hard to find, so i was excited to see that everlane made one this season in three different shades. also very into the cord jacket in lilac and the quilted coat below. with almost a thousand positive reviews on those boots, i think these boots are a must try and you can’t go wrong with a bow front blouse (in a liberty print!) for fall.

if you’re feeling sad about the transition to fall, shorter/darker days, buy a few sweaters in soft colors like this pale pink one above.

ribbed turtleneck for the winner! cute on its own or under overalls or a dress. and the perfect prairie dress below, love that shade of green.

that’s all folks, enjoy the last bit of summer!
