this and that   //   October 3, 2014



Do you like cinnamon? What about rice krispie treats? And s’mores, too? Well, good. Because this recipe has all three.

If you haven’t already done so, you really should take a gander at the latest additions to the Shopbop sale. A whole bunch of “my hearts” (like these!) were marked down and I’m betting yours were, too! We’re talking coatscocktail dresses (I think I’m going to order this one), and the most perfect winter-white, cozy sweater ever.

Dylan and Brenda, Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, Angela Chase and Jordan Catalano… the infamous breakups of the ’90s were hard on all of us. The only one on this list I didn’t shed a tear over was Dawson leery and Joey Potter. Joey was always meant for Pacey. Agreed?

Is there anything better than cozying up in a chunky-knit sweater this time of year? I’ve already pulled out my current favorite from Emerson Fry. It’s still a bit warm to wear it outside just yet but that doesn’t mean I’m not turning the A/C way up and wearing it around my house. (My husband thinks I’m crazy.)

The latest addition to my coffee table? Elle Decor: The Height of Style. It’s proving to be even better than I imagined. Not only is it chock-full of beautiful photos, but it’s divided into tidy categories (“Functional,” “Fanciful”…) making it very reader-friendly.

While I’m really looking forward to cool temperatures and winter days, the Chloé S/S 15 collection had me dreaming of sunny days in the French Riviera – if only just for a second. This collection was a dreamy one. It was breezy (something Chloé is always so, so good at) but elegant. Those lace-y white dresses? It doesnt get much prettier than that.

Plus a few more… 

Dallas had its first cold front blow through today. It actually feels like fall here. With that in mind, I can’t wait to start whipping up soups like this yummy butternut squash one from Victoria.

As much time as I spend on my Mac and as tech-savvy as I believe myself to be, I’m still amazed at all the simple things I have yet to learn. This list of the “10 Things You Didn’t Know Your Mac Could Do” was eye-opening.

If you’re a fan of IRO like I am, you’re in luck: The Outnet just received a shipment of new arrivals. As always, the prices (55% off for this jacket!) can’t be beat.

Go bold or go home: that’s the motto for this color- and pattern-filled Paris apartment.
