Friday Fancies


I’m generally not a huge fan of animal prints. But when I saw the Steve Madden Madee two years ago, this pair immediately joined my wardrobe. The combination of the leopard print, calf hair, and smoking-slipper style make these perfect for fall. Fortunately, the Steve Madden Croquetl is similar and currently on sale!

Chrysanthemums are the ultimate autumn flower, and I’m happy that they’re decorating our house at the moment. My mom also bought pots of the most radiant yellow mums for our front porch that stand out beautifully against darkening leaves and overcast skies. By the way, was the picture book Chrysanthemum, by Kevin Henkes, a favorite for anyone else as a child?


Sometimes, a hair accessory can pull together a look even better than jewelry or makeup can. For those times when a headband might be a little too much, even a small detail, like one of these knotted hair ties, can make a big difference. Right now, I especially love these fun prints in the girls’ section of J. Crew.image-7

Every fall season, I’m all about enjoying pumpkin-flavored everything. And I’m not ashamed to admit that the Dairy Queen Pumpkin Pie Blizzard is probably my favorite. There’s just something about the “pumpkin pie pieces” that are mixed in!

Though Feedly isn’t technically new, it’s new to me. And it, as well as other RSS feeds, has experienced a surge in popularity since Google Reader was discontinued this summer. I especially like Feedly because of its organization–each blog and news source I follow is laid out in a clean, logical format. Every morning, I can quickly go through all of the articles that are important to me. Throughout the rest of the day, rather than wasting time by searching for interesting content to read on a break, I can always choose a few of the posts that are constantly added to my feed.
