Cozy Fall Bedroom

With the temperature dropping, we’re looking to cozy up our bedrooms! When Crane & Canopy asked us how we how we prep our bedrooms for fall, we wanted to share our tips and tricks!

01. Change up your bedding.
Flannel, fleece, velvet – add all of the texture to our bed.

02. And then add blankets!
Plaid, chunky knit, wool, faux fur – cozy up with your boo and watch a movie in bed!

03. Light your most comforting candle.
Whether it’s sweet like oatmeal cookie or vanilla, or musky like campfire and pine, the comforting smell and beautiful glow of your favorite candle will make you want to spend all of your free time in your bedroom.

04. Cozy up your reading nook.
Apply everything we just said to your comfy little reading corner 🙂

05. Bring fall textures/accessories into your bedroom.
Wood trays for accessories (or morning coffee!), pine cones, green garlands – go as simple or as complex as you’d like! Maybe even add an adorable mini pumpkin to your dresser.

Sibling Gift Guide

Sorry for the radio silence on Friday! It was a busy week followed by an even busier weekend – Christa’s 25th birthday! Reg came to Hartford for a weekend of delicious food, great holiday shopping, and a fun b-day bash! But we’re back in holiday mode- gifts have got to be bought, shipped and wrapped in less than 2 weeks (eek!). So we preset to you the sibling gift guide…

First up – gifts for your brother!

“For yah Motha” Gift Guide

MomGiftGuide_Holiday2014

Moms can be a little tough to buy for, because anything they want/need tends to be a new kitchen appliance or cashmere, which can definitely burn a hole in your wallet. While we REALLY wish we could buy it for them, more often than not we just can’t quite tackle it on your own. Our families often go in on group gifts for when Mom wants something pricey, but if you’re looking to get her something meaningful just from you (and with a smaller price tag), we have some ideas! Our go-tos usually include cozy knits, kitchen items, and pretty everyday accessories:

Knit Infinity Scarf // Candle Holder // Salad Utensils // Small Gold Hoops // Cutting Board // Card Holder // Seasonal Produce Calendar // Glass Tea Infuser // Everyday Tote

Favorite Fall Footwear

shoes

Shoes. Shoes shoes. Shoes. How we love them so. They just pull an outfit together so perfectly, and fall just screams for new footwear to fall into your lives. So without further ado, I present to you my top faves for this upcoming season:

01. Oxblood Penny Loafer // These menswear inspired little numbers will have you looking sharp and classy. But you may also need to get a pipe, readers, and bow-tie to pull the look together (jk, please don’t do that).

02. Heeled Ankle Bootie // Seriously though, what was I wearing in the fall before booties came into my life? I feel like they just recently came about, and quickly became a fashion staple. Hail to the bootie!

03. Nude Flats // How adorable are those scalloped edges? #icant. Nude flats are simply a must for ladies, and pretty much work year round.

04. Classic Black Heels // I have to admit I don’t have a single pair of classic black heels. Sinful, I know. But now that I’m officially in my mid-twenties (eek), I think it’s about time I get a pair. They just make your legs and bum looks so killer. I really want to wear these with some skinny denim and a plaid button up.

05. D’Orsay Flats // One of the latest trends in the world of flats is the d’orsay. For ladies with little feet like me, they do a great job of elongating your foot a bit to make them look more proportionate to your legs. I got a similar pair to these with a mini wedge from Marshall’s that I’m stoked to wear out.

06. Tall Leather Boots // I’m getting these. It’s official. I mean, that leather. AND they’re a wide-calf. It’s been an honest struggle for me to find boots to fit around my tree-stump like calves, so I’m really hoping these work out!
