friday five | fall, y’all.

So. Yesterday was the first day of fall! {insert squeals and PSLs} Before you dive feet first into your Uggs, let’s look at a few transition outfits. It’s still nearly 80 outside (in Atlanta) after all…

1. A scarf and a bootie go a long way during this transitional period. TGL Hello Fashion

2. We kind of live in neutrals. Especially black and white. Drape a leather jacket over your shoulders and you’re fall ready. TGL Black White

3. Distressed denim, a light sleeve and a fun peep toe bootie. Easy. Cute. Cozy. TGL KC booties

4. A utility vest is super versatile in the fall + winter months. Pair with a short sleeve t-shirt dress while it’s warmish and with jeans and a plaid long sleeve top when it’s cold!TGL Layering

5. Neutrals. All. Day. Easy. Chic. Can you tell I’m obsessing over this Celine bag? TGL Neutral

friday five: weekend to-do list.

1. Have an Indoor Picnic.  The weather in Georgia is going to be seriously terrible this weekend.  Rather than going out, whip up a simple supper of a sliced baguette, fancy cheeses, charcuterie and cornichons (check out this link for inspiration – or just grab takeout), spread a blanket on the living room floor and listen to the rain.

2. DIY Braided Cord Cover. Exposed cords really bother us. We work hard to conceal them (we’ve been known to tape them to the bottoms of tables, weave them through tiny nails hammered into the wall, etc), but sometimes we have no choice but to let them show. Fabric Paper Glue to the rescue! In the time it takes you to watch a cheesy TV movie, you can create this adorable braided cover.

And if cords REALLY make you nuts, try these washi tape cord covers perfect for phone chargers.

3. Style Your Shelves. This is a perfect rainy day project! Think like a stylist: scour your house for interesting objects (random vases, figurines, tiny photos); group similarly-colored books together; and give the eye somewhere to rest every now and then. This is a great article with more how-to advice.

4. Visit a Flower Market. IT’S PEONY SEASON! We both love peonies; their explosive beauty is perfection in arrangements short and tall, simple and complex. If weather permits, visit your local flower market, scoop some peonies (or whatever flowers you love), and create an arrangement yourself. We love these ideas from Apartment Therapy.

5. Bake Something. Sundays are for baking at our houses. Try these peanut-butter pretzel brownies from on the ADORABLE blog A Beautiful Mess. Chevron pretzel pattern optional.

salty, sweet and semi-homemade.
