SPICE IN SMALL DOSES


 My trick for wearing scary trends, is to make something sweet tough and something tough sweet. When you take the sharp edge out of something you make it wearable. And if something is too saccharine, you make it you.
If pastels dominate the runway, wear yours with jeans, black booties, cool earrings, anything that gives it some bite. With a trend as snake skin, I go the other way.
I tend to have a fantasy wardrobe, for my imaginary lives. In one of them I play guitar in a band. I am wearing my snake print jacket, there, on stage.
But in my real life, I wear snake print in very small doses, preferably as something sweet, like these Tory Burch Reva flats with embossed snake print, very comfy, and cute to walk the dogs and run my errands. And I have to say, I like my dream lives, but I love my real one.

My newest favorite, is this pair of jeans, they are J Brand Jake boyfriends. The denim and wash are gorgeous and they are really comfortable, they do not sag.

PERFECT PLAID DRESSES



The cutest plaid dresses isabel marant/gap/madewell

Of all the trends coming up this fall, plaid, cosy cardigans, the cabin girl look is one of my favorites. I am looking for a new plaid dress, this one by Gap is adorable (35% with code THANKS), but I also like the Madewell and the Velvet one a lot. And the F21 burgundy dress, come on, crazy cute!
In the meantime I am wearing my Isabel Marant dress on the weekends with my very well worn Marant booties.
If you are looking for one yourself, they will be great with boots and tights this winter, and with high heeled booties in the city, but make sure it is short. You don't want to look like you are wearing your flannel nightie!

GRAPES AND GOAT CHEESE SALAD (and more picnic recipes)

Picnic salad with grapes, farro and goat cheese
How are you doing? I hope you also having these warm and wonderful September days. This is my favorite time of the year. Summer is all about keeping it simple. I love simple but now that shops and markets are still brimming with sweet summer produce, you can finally find muscat grapes, purple figs, persimmons, and pomegranates. Dishes get a little bit richer, flavor denser. You are not longer a sweaty mess in the kitchen. 

This picnic is simple, you can make it in advance, and the ingredients are easy to assemble, so nothing gets soggy.

FALL PICNIC

What you need for a picnic, basket, everything you need for a picnic.

September is glorious (a warm low sun, the air crisp at twilight, my schedule still easy). I find it the ideal time to have picnics. Even though in August there outdoor movies and lots of evenings by the lake, there are also mosquito's, and BBQ. Only now I am in the mood,  picnicS for me have to be a little bit more rustic, rugged and romantic
