Fall Faves

fall-in-crested-butte-covet-living

Sigh.  The most wonderful time of the year is upon us:  that time when the air gets a little cooler and crisper, and you can see your breath in the mornings… where I can almost hear the nostalgic sound of pencils sharpening and lockers closing, where the sight of cabled sweaters makes me weak at the knees, and when I wanna burn down the house with pumpkin spice candles.  It’s supposed to be straight summer weather this weekend in San Diego (not complaining), but I am gonna go ahead and rap about all the things that are screaming Fall to me and currently blowing up my shorts.  For starters, that pic above that I took standing up out of the sunroof last weekend in Crested Butte.  On a Sunday drive.  Like my grandparents used to take.  Next time I’m there, hopefully it’ll look like these apples:

| THE BEST SWEATER I’VE EVER SEEN |

Also, love the 3-ring index finger stack.  And the nail color.

| THIS BAG MAKES ME WEAK AT THE KNEES |

You could slap a tassel on a turd and I’d buy it.  Don’t kill me but I have no idea where I saved this from.

| OLIVE SUEDE PUMPS.  I REPEAT: OLIVE SUEDE PUMPS. |

Perfect for dressing up the best outfit ever – AKA jeans + white tees.  Under $50…      (( boom ))

| TAKE ME TO THERE |

Not sure who this chick is, but pretty sure I’d like to show up with a bottle of wine and make friends with her, so I can plop myself into that pillow situation.

| MOODY NAIL POLISH |

Which I still can’t pull off but love it when other people do.  Essie “Power Clutch” is a good color.

Karrie posted this recipe for the most amazing Rosemary Orange Chicken I made for her & Teem a few weeks back, but I’ve since tweaked it…  follow the recipe in the link above, EXCEPT: 1. Add zest of 1 orange to the chicken stock / orange juice / honey part.  This is vital.  2.  Leave out the maple syrup.  The 2 Tbs honey makes it plenty sweet.  3.  Cook it about 1 minute longer on each side in the cast iron skillet on the stove, and bake it for about 10 min less (check to make sure it’s done though, ‘fore you go getting salmonella poisoning or the runs on my account).  4. Add a pinch of corn starch to thicken the sauce towards the end.  It never reduces / gets thick enough for me by just simmering on low.  5.  I like it served with quinoa and a green veggie, like broccolini.

| GET COZY |

Fall is for piling on the layers – onto your person, and onto your bed.  The Boyfriend Matelassé from Pine Cone Hill is **the** softest, nubbiest, coziest &^$% thing you’ll ever lay a hand on.

| BEST FALL CANDLES |

I just bought this (scent: Butternut Spice – the green one below) as a gift for someone, and it smelled so good in my suitcase I literally almost kept it. #whoops

This one’s a little more woodsy and gender-neutral.  Great for dudes.

| THE GREATEST PLAID FLANNEL SHIRT KNOWN TO MAN. |

I bought this last week in Colorado, and I didn’t take it off the entire time I was there.  You would literally think I didn’t take a bath for 10 days because I’m wearing it in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE.  I usually don’t do well with button-ups because something about them always feels a little masculine and a little constricting to me, but this one is SO perfect.  And so cozy.  And fitted without being tight.  Probably gonna have to snap it up in ivory too and slab some red lipstick on.

| BOOTIES TO DIE FOR |

I don’t know where these came from or how to find them, which is an absolute tragedy because they’re perfect, but these are similar.  Pretty sure the ones below are Jeffrey Campbell from a few seasons ago.

| FRAGGLE ROCK FAB |

I might be insane, but I feel like I need this.  All you’d have to do is throw it on over a wife beater with jeans, heels and a top knot for dinner and it’s like yer wearin’ a party.  { via }

| THE BEST & CHEAPEST JEANS YOU’LL EVER BUY |

I used to be a Citizens / 7’s devotee and thought I had to spend good $$ to get good jeans.  And while those are all stacked high in my closet because I feel guilty for having spent so much cheese on them, I never touch them.  I have 3 favorite pairs in my rotation, and they’re all different colors of these.  From H&M.  For $39, but I swear I always get them on sale for $19.99.  I mean, it’s almost like stealing.

| MY FAVORITE NEW SWEATER |

Currently living in this.  If you’re like us in SoCal and sweating Fall – but literally sweating in real life cuz it’s still summer where you are – this is perfect for channeling Autumn, sans le swass.

Insert plaid + pumpkins & you’ve got a yard rager.

| BEST WINE GLASSES EVER |

I just zero’d in on that table top above and remembered that I saw the best wine glasses (ever) at West Elm a few weekends ago in Denver.  These are seriously some of the coolest ones I’ve ever seen.  Whoops I accidentally just bought a set of 8.

I’ll give Gus’ first born to anybody who can name that eyeliner.

Gift Guide: For the Guys

I’m going to get put on the naughty list for saying so, but every year, I look at the gift guides out there for dudes, and every year I scratch my head and wonder: Cufflinks in the shape of guns… hokey plaid everything… and things like soap that smells like charcoal.  Are those really what the guys we love want from Santa? Maybe they do…  What do I know?  I’m a chick, and I love doilies and things that are sparkly. So to make sure this list is on point for you guys, I enlisted the help of my other half (and Elf for the day), Matt.  Hey, Sugar!!

Matt’s got snooty impeccable taste in everything, and nearly every gift idea below has been taken for a spin in our house and gotten a serious stamp of approval.  Here goes!

1. Donegal Wool Cable Cardigan – Matt cannot get enough of these.  Nor can I. DILF sweaters (did I say that out loud?) like this one make *every* guy look a little more handsome.  I picture the men who wear them rocking cooing babies by the fire, sipping coffee at the kitchen table, or chopping wood in the front yard. Classic cold weather staple for any guy.

2. Bowl Tickets – Enter the Holy Grail of Christmas Gifts for Guys…  especially if they’re lunatics about college football like someone I know, who galloped around the room 18 times screaming last Saturday when Auburn turned Ray Finkle’s missed field goal into touchdown and history-making gold.  Even I shed a single tear.

3. Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Scrub – Matt loves using this to slough off dead skin in between shaves.  It’s also apparently “tingly and clean and smells really good.”

4. Moscow Mule Copper Mugs – I dare you to show me a guy who doesn’t wanna drink that delicious vodka / lime juice / ginger beer concoction out of these.

5. Go Pro – These are hi-def (1080p), waterproof, have built-in Wi Fi and are straight up AMAZING.  And at under $200, I feel like I’m straight up stealing. If you’re not familiar with GoPro, check out this YouTube video.

6. Marled Socks – Great for wearing under boots, or just lounging around the house.

7. Lululemon Post Gravity Pant – Buy these for him, then steal them every Saturday morning.  Everybody wins!

8. McLerran Leather & Flannel Boot – Matt got these earlier this fall, and they look KILLER with everything.  Classic with handsome details and a little edge.

9. Clary Sage Candle – you wouldn’t *normally* think to buy candles for the fellas, but this one is earthy and clean.  Email info@nathanturner.com to purchase.

10. Fit Bit – Definitely stuff yourself silly this Christmas, then after January 1st, wear this all day & all night to track your steps, distance, calories consumed, calories burned, etc.

11. Forage Haberdashery Handkerchiefs – or pocket squares…  whatever.  Here it is from the horse’s mouth:  “I wear my pocket square with my suit after I’ve taken my tie off but still have to meet clients out for dinners. It’s a little more dressed-down, but still kind of a classic cool look.”  Personally, I dig that there’s an old school, dapper, gentlemanly quality to them.  I loved the ones pictured from Nathan Turner‘s shop in LA. Email info@nathanturner.com to purchase.

12. Eco Heather 3/4 Sleeve Raglan Shirt – insanely comfortable (Matt and I both own one) and look H-O-T on dudes.  This one comes in a GREAT color combo and is on sale for $20.  BANG.

…Need more ideas?  Last year’s list is still full of solid picks…  especially the Big Green Egg, Ugg slippers, the Arcteryx jacket, and the Maps Rocks Glasses.

Happy Shopping!
