It happens to me every mid August
that missing my fall friends in my closet.
The yearning for Autumn's return
bringing out my old friends form the back of the closet.
So this weekend I brought out a couple of sweaters
whether I needed them or not
they made my heart happy by reinvigorating my wardrobe!
I paired my Rachel Zoe cashmere sweater
with my Free People lace tunic slip
that I can pair with so many things
my capri pants from Anthropologie.
I grabbed my parasol I found in Little Tokyo
basket from the
headed off to her cooking class on Saturday!
As my friends know I have never been very interested in cooking
but Andrea is changing that!
She has such passion for not only cooking
but searching out the best of everything!
Whether it be fresh eggs form a family owned farm at the farmers market ...
the most beautiful in organic produce ...
or the best flour from Italy ...
salts from France
The French Basketeer knows where to get the very best of everything!
I am still mulling over the beauty
in her French linens
stacked high at the ready for kitchen tidying.
I am rethinking my linens to be sure!
The simple beauty of the linens
highlights the beauty in everything they come in contact with!
Always providing such a perfect backdrop for everything.
It is this beauty
in the cooking process
that has me intrigued.
As well as the results that are produced.
It is Andrea's passion for the beauty in the ingredients
that has me willing to venture into this new to me, arena.
Cooking has become more of a lifestyle
in which visiting farmers markets with beautiful baskets
to find gorgeous organic produce
to make into heathy meals
has me reexamining
not only what I eat
but how I spend my time.
Realizing healthy food is a necessity
learning to slow down
learning to slow down
to enjoy the process
with friends and family
This whole process is becoming a new creative outlet for me.
Andrea brings artistry to her meals
a relaxed atmosphere
in a much more European vein
where a meal can be slowed down
to be savored with family and friends.
Now back to my first love.
With a change of shoes
I was already for date night!
My outfit this weekend was inspired by my new
crown/headband from H&M.
It's not often I find anything there
but when I do it's always so fun!
For dinner in the harbor
I added my big cowl sweater
with a comfortable wedge.
I kept the accessories simple with just
a bold dash of
Tamera Beardsley Design bracelets.
I was quite happy with this weekend wear choices.
Pulling out a couple of beloved sweaters
was just enough of a reminder
that soon the seasons will be changing.
I can have excitement for the new season to come
still be reminded to savor
the season that is today!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
