HAPPY FRIDAY, friends! What a week! I’m so excited about my two amazing giveaways and everything happening in the coming weeks. The thrill of fall is dizzying and I’m already getting excited for the holidays. I think with such a hot ass summer — the promise of cooler days is that much more wonderful. My weekend is busy with organization and getting the house ready for my friend visiting from Montreal, but I’m going to try to squeeze some more baking and soup making in. Have a good one! xo Jen
P.S. Has anyone been watching this show? It’s on my list — maybe this weekend.

I’m fully immersed in the fall frenzy, but my head was turned by the upcoming Howard S/S 2016 collection by Portland-based designer Britt Howard. I’m excited for Britt’s move to design under her own name instead of continuing to produce her apparel under a house line for her company Portland Garment Factory. I love so many pieces coming up for spring — all those beautiful dresses and breezy separates look perfect! Once spring rolls around, everything will be available on the Howard site and the list of stockists is sure to grow considerably. OK, now back to your regularly scheduled autumn programming. More HERE.

My friend has the Lineas Wrap from VOZ and it is truly a thing of the coziest beauty. It’s soft, made-to-order, and hand-woven on a centuries-old loom — pure joy, really — my friend refers to it as her “scarf husband”. There are so many other things from their collections that I’m curious about as well, like the geometric knit beanie, the cloud-like Infinity Scarf, the ivory Diagonal Wrap, this other Lineas Wrap, the cute Cropped Sweater, the grey Fringe Top, and the Tahi Tunic from last fall is stunning — and on sale. Actually, there are pieces available from their previous three collections that are magically all on sale. More HERE.

Now that I’m in deep with my Nisolo shoe love, I need to get it together and choose a couple pairs for fall. My shoe situation is bad. I’m in that state where most of my go-to pairs are in various stages of dilapidation and/or haunting irritation: too squeaky (!?), too stretched out, suede bald in some spots (not in a pretty way), were always slightly big, were always slightly small, that weird stitch is still in that spot that rubs my ankle raw or they’re just “sittin’ shoes”. Anyways, I need some new everyday kicks and the well-priced, handmade beauties by Nashville’s Nisolo are beckoning. I’m most enamored with the Oliver Oxfords in both Noir and Brandy, the dreamy Smoking Shoes in Noir and Brandy, the black Austin Ankle Booties, and the Chukka Boots in Steel and Brandy both look super versatile.
