Has anyone else noticed summer’s slow fade? The afternoons aren’t quite as hot. The mornings are staying dark just that much longer. As much as I love fall {it is actually my favorite season – the fashion, the food, the nesting}, this time of year is always a bit bittersweet. So this weekend we’re going to take a sojourn to the beach, grab the last of the stone fruit at the farmers market and partake in some day drinking {summer’s greatest indulgence if you ask me.} I’ll also be hunting for the best drawer pulls, trying to select paint colors and finalize the nursery design for the house! You have spied this sneak peek on Instagram. Our renovation is really picking up speed now. I’m going to be sharing a full update with you on Monday! It’s starting to really feel real.

But for now, here are a few fun links to enjoy on a lazy end-of-summer afternoon!

> Our dear friend launched the most beautiful children’s shop this week and we’ve picked out our favorites right here! If you have a little in your life, you’ll WANT everything.

> The hues of greens and crimson in this fall collection are so beautiful. We die.

> Seven items with gorgeous packaging? This post is right up our “we bought it for the packaging” alley!

> Love the idea of starting off the day with a bigger, healthier meal. This breakfast super bowl with quinoa sounds like a clean and simple recipe to try!

> Don’t have room for a nightstand? No problem. These wall hung catchalls are perfection by the bed!

> Who has a wire Bertoia chair and never sits in it? ME. This design idea just made these classics way more comfy and we love!

> Made in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood {just blocks from us!}, we’re obsessing over this local designer!

And some things you may have missed around here:
