Gimme All the Cozy Cocoons

Olive + Oak open knit cardi – m.marie Vince Camuto leather “Colby” bag – Hautelook La Mer Collections leather wrap watch My friend, Meghan, recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of her boutique, m.marie. She had a big open house a few weeks ago, and I scooped up this Olive + Oak cocoon sweater. It called to me from the rack: big chunky knit, neutral color, long enough to cover my butt in leggings; checkity-check-check. When I tried it on…

Window Dressing

We had some downtime at the shop yesterday, so we busied ourselves fall-ifying the place. {Speaking of fall: in the spirit of the new season, I’m burning a gifted Rafa Natural “harvest” soy candle as I pound out this post; it’s warm, spicy heaven in a jar.} When all the day’s deliveries were done, my right-hand lady, Shanna, stopped at the local market for some big pretty pumpkins.

A few new clients hopped on board, we booked several upcoming events, and we added a sweet and talented lady to our…

cold therapy

As C headed out the door this morning — and I struggled to make up the time I overslept — he uttered the sweet words I’ve waited weeks to hear… “Baby, dress warm!” Glory be, a real live fall day! I zipped up my favorite boots, wrapped a (lightweight) scarf around my neck, and left the house determined to let the crisp air blow away the frustrations of a trying hump day. You didn’t think yesterday’s…
