Good morning, chic readers! We are so, so excited that By Invitation Only is back in action. If you aren’t familiar with By Invitation Only, it is a super fun collaboration where favorite bloggers get together every month and write about the same topic. You can visit our friend DA Wolf at Daily Plate of Crazy to find links to all the bloggers participating.
This month, we’re welcoming fall, in our homes and in our lives overall. We don’t know about you, but, for us, welcoming fall means opening the windows, letting fresh air in and savoring the crispness in the air.
Welcoming fall is about adding cozy throws and great textures and favoring shades of tan and pumpkin, gold and creams, the richer hues that correspond so well with the changing leaves and the sun that’s setting just a little earlier already.
Fall is also a fabulous time to celebrate the change of seasons with a fun soiree, which, of course, means getting the kitchen in tip top shape.
We’ll admit it: We like to leave the cooking to the professionals. But the right, gorgeous cookware that makes the food taste as good as the pots and pans look is a necessity when getting ready for a change of season celebration.
I’m in the market for new barstools right now, and these adorable cushions welcome fall in this kitchen with aplomb! A pretty (and delicious!) arrangement of seasonal fruits and veggies makes for a stunning centerpiece, no flowers required.
One of the things on our minds right now is hanging some new pieces of art to really get our houses party ready. These fall tones are very of the moment!
Speaking of works of art, what a perfect setting for a fall fete!
When it comes to parties, getting dressed is half the fun! This Tory Burch outfit hits all the high notes of equestrian style.
Speaking of animal-inspired fashion, this display at Kate Spade is so fabulous! It seems like leopard is everywhere we look this fall. So we must include it in our outfits!
While cocktails and dinner are always fabulous, sometimes having a few good friends for a great cup of coffee is all it takes to turn an ordinary day into a celebration. A mix of antique silver and new pottery, we couldn’t love this juxtaposition any more!
Our friend (He’s so not our friend. But girls can dream, right?) Tom Ford has assembled the ultimate fall collection for making our faces look fabulous no matter what the season holds.
And the brilliant minds from BHG have so many great tips for the perfect paint tips to transform any home for fall. We’re obsessed with Golden Ginger. It may very well be the new not-quite-white we all need so much!
Do you have any plans for fall celebrations?
If you’re looking for the perfect books to add a little warmth to your Fall, check out my latest novel, Slightly South of Simple (Simon & Schuster, 2016) or preorder The Secret to Southern Charm (Simon & Schuster, 2017) so you’ll have reading to look forward to this Spring!
