My Latest Snag: TBBC Sheffield Shorts.
I am slowly starting to work on my children’s fall wardrobes (um, school will be here so soon?!) and my first purchase was this pair of khaki shorts, recently restocked in all sizes, with my son’s initials monogrammed at the knee in cobalt blue. I shared a bunch of my other favorite fall basics for little boys in this post, but I am particularly excited about buying him this rain coat and this barn jacket. I’m always a sucker for good outerwear!
You’re Soooo Popular: Transition-to-Fall Dresses.
The most popular items on le blog this week:
+This tiered floral dress. (Guess we’re all in dress mode!). All three of these dresses are great transition-to-fall buys because of their sleeves — all can be worn with a chic sweater and booties (or clogs)!
+This chunky pink sweater is such a chic find.
+A few sizes left of this pretty floral mini from one of my new favorite designers — wouldn’t this dress be the perfect coming-home-from-the-hospital dress? Buttons down the front, nice and loose! Would also work with bump!
+You need this splash pad. SO fun for littles, even tiny babies!
+Super love everything about this gorgeous blouse. The fit, the color, the neckline!
+Cute sky blue backpack. Great for moms on the go.
Weekend Musings: New Word.
I few months ago I shared a new-to-me word, eunoia, and I had to share another fantastic one: petrichor.
Petrichor: The earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek petra, “rock”, or petros, “stone”, and īchōr, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.
Spectacular in its specificity and allusiveness!

Post-Scripts: Red Dresses.
+Love all of these dried grasses for fall styling at home. We have a set of tall dried grasses we bought from a garden shop in Chicago (and have carried with us to three homes since!) that we keep in a tall vase in our foyer — adds so much texture, drama, and fullness for a reasonable price (and you don’t need to water them!). Love these pampas ones in particular.
+This children’s chair is BEYOND.
+Just ordered myself this top in pink and now wondering if I need it in white and/or black?
+And speaking of outerwear, just discovered this longline parka from Gap. So utilitarian chic. Love the idea of layering it over athleisure.
+Just added this reasonably priced personalized stationery to my correspondence arsenal. She has such fun designs!
+This coffee table is so unusual and architectural. Love!
+Having a hard time resisting the appeal of this 70%-off Brock Collection blouse…would be so chic for fall!

+Adore this pointer dog baby blanket. Too cute for a little boy!
