These are the Sarah Flint Perfect Zip Booties, and you know the brand takes the word “perfect” quite seriously. These boots, (in black, in the 30mm heel height) were my most-worn pair of shoes last fall and winter, by far. They are so comfortable, so versatile—and made to last an actual lifetime. I think it’s time for me to invest in the olive green suede pair for the new season. Somebody hold me back.

Hello, my name is Mary and I have a home in the suburbs now and the suburbs DON’T SKIP OPPORTUNITIES TO EMBRACE A THEME. That's right. I have to decorate for fall and stuff now. It's in the contract. I'm guessing it has to do with actually having storage space for all that off-season stuff. We’re less than 12 months from me dedicating an entire closet to carefully marked rubbermaid containers organized by season and festivity and you know what, I’m not mad about it. (Colette just whispered, "My birthday should get its own wing of the house.") If, like me, you're new to this whole "decorating for fall thing" or you just need some fresh inspiration, check out this great article chock-full of ideas.
I don’t know what makes round pillows so delightful, but I’ll take seven. These velvet, richly-colored round pillows are a lightning-fast way to upgrade your sofa or armchair situations for cooler weather. The vintage-inspired visible stitching adds to the overall interest of the pillows, but TBH they just look so comfy to me.
First of all, a glass teapot is just the chicest thing ever—the end. But this one has an infuser down the center, allowing you to brew loose leaf tea sans bags, creating less waste and allowing you to create your own custom tea blends! Brb just gonna go become an apothecary real quick…
Do not let summer bonfires keep all the s'mores for themselves. Fall means cold weather, cold weather means fire pits and fire pits mean s’mores. GIVE ME S’MORES. But you know what I always say about my s’mores? They’re NOT STICKY ENOUGH. Enter this recipe which has sparked magical s'mores ideas in my brain. While I do take offense to the suggestion that I should make my own graham crackers (this is 2020, we’ve suffered enough, thank you), the addition of caramel to an already perfect campfire recipe is VERY INTRIGUING INDEED. But here's what I'm thinking: A fall bonfire party with a S'MORES BAR. You could have a line-up of caramels, regular Hersheys chocolate bars, Reese's peanut butter cups, THE SKY'S THE LIMIT. So many ways to jazz up the classic and have an outdoor socially-distant get-together. Wow I'm getting way too into this I need to chill.
Man do I love a trend that’s visible in Zooms. Oversized "baby collars" are making quite the appearance in fall's new arrivals, and this Mango option is a fantastic way to give the trend a try affordably, and adorably! Pair with your favorite trouser or midi skirt... or sweatpants. No one can see you from the waist down.
Strips are out, pens are in—and if you’re in the market for a teeth whitening solution, you’d do well to look into this REALLY HIGHLY RATED pen. Made by Colgate, this overnight “Optic White” treatment works while you sleep to whiten your teeth by up to two shades in as little as one week! Is there any better multitask than literally while you’re sleeping?
Please forward my correspondence to this dress. The Canaan ribbed-knit turtleneck midi dress by Nanushka is a belted, cozy wonderdress among the first being added to my collection this fall. Equally wearable on workdays and weekends, your accessories/shoes will add a little crispness to a look that’s otherwise more casual, and the belt gives the dress great shape. Wear with sneakers, flats, booties... but personally, I like that the slits also allow for a knee-high boot to be worn and appreciated. Autumnal scented candles not included.
How cool is this?
