Fall is in full force now that it’s somehow the middle of October! The temps have finally lowered a bit and the sweaters are coming out. Before winter hits, we’re hoping to have the best fall ever…

Christa’s fall bucket list:
Hit up as many farmers markets as possible
Make donuts with my new donut pan (post coming soon!)
Figure out a storage system for storing my boots so they look this good next fall!
+ Actually watch Rosemary’s Baby this year
+ Travel to Boston more to visit Reg!
+ Hike more while the leaves are this gorgeous
+ Walk, instead of drive, to as many local things as possible
Finish Moby Dick by Thanksgiving

Reg’s fall bucket list:
Sunset wine on the Charles River with blankets
Hike Monad again!
Biking around the city
Make mulled spiked cider and wine
Walk the Arnold Arboretum
Teach a yoga class for my friends in the park
Get up early to take photos before the city wakes up
Bake all of the apple everything

What’s on your fall bucket list?

Love Want Need // Espadrilles & Totes

gm_Espadrilles&Totes

Happy Monday, all! Hope you all had pleasant weekends! This past Saturday was my birthday, so Christa and her boyfriend came to pay me a visit in Boston. The weather turned out to be much nicer than we anticipated, so we got to go on some nice long walks. It got me thinking about how day-trip season is upon us — pleasant afternoons filled with slow strolls in destination towns, checking out local shops and markets. Days like those call for lightweight comfy shoes and easy carry-all totes for your finds along the way, with canvas being the perfect material for both! Check out some of our finds:


Love
Target Cap Toe Espadrille
Tri-Coastal Watermelon Tote

Want
Soludos Classic Espadrille
Dogeared Random Crap Tote

Need
JCrew Factory Geo-Print Espadrille
Becksondergaard Agave Tote


Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday, friends! It looks like it’s going to be very Fall-ish this weekend, unlike last weekend, and we’re pretty excited! Christa is heading up to Vermont to visit family and check out the foliage and Reg is making brunch with the ladies tomorrow, followed by who knows what!

We’ve got our usual links below. Have a fabulous couple days off! xo G&M

cct // Speaking of foliage, how’s your state doing? CT is getting there, but it probably needs about a week or 2 for peak colors. Vermont looks like it should be just right for our visit this weekend! You can check out the US here, and state by state estimation here.

rkv // 20 ways to style the classic white button-down

cct // I heard a snippet of Lena Dunham’s Fresh Air interview with Terry Gross, and came across some videos she made to promote her book, and I’m impressed! I was happily surprised that although she is similar to Hannah on Girls, she is a much more aware and less self absorbed in real life (from what I could tell haha). This video made me like her even more!

rkv // Love this idea for DIY mismatched painted flatware

cct // I need to do this. right. now! Such a perfect DIY for my little apartment!

rkv // I mean, just because it’s Britain’s smallest horse.

cct // I have such a thing for bedding, and it’s always great to find out more tips and tricks! 

rkv // It’s October, so we can officially start thinking about Halloween costumes without seeming like the over-planners that we are. If you’re looking for some deas, here’s Buzzfeed’s “Which 90’s Halloween Costumer Should You Be?” quizz.
