root & roasted veggies galore this time of year, especially this off-color variety. there has always been something about raw vegetables in photography that i just adore.

casual living.

if you know me, you know i love a good juxtaposition of chic and casual – in style, interiors, entertaining and beyond. the sweatshirt luxe look is so up my alley.

i love the light, look and feel of a lush greenhouse, and the fact that you truly can’t tell if this space is indoor or out makes it so inviting {especially for entertaining!}

happy halloween.

last year’s costume was a tiger, and this year my little lion has stolen my heart again. i figure i have limited time to dress him “cute” before he wants to start wearing the something the cool kids will envy.

caped crusader.

leslie tessler cape

being pregnant, i haven’t exactly been on a fashion shopping spree lately. however, if there is one staple i’d love to add to my wardrobe this fall, it’s a classic cape. the simplicity and regal nature quickly dresses up even a pair of skinnies and tee.

woodburning stove.

i grew up with a woodburning stove in our living room. probably not the norm, but it was to us. that little cast iron number could sure put out some heat and i love the black contrast and rustic design interest it brings to our family home.

so it is not so, yet – but i know it is looming at some point in the next year [ maybe pushing it].  but this one sure seems like a little inspiration of dreamy black + white that will translate perfectly into her current nursery scheme.
