around here

just a little glimpse into things around here lately. and apparently all we've been doing is eating ;). what can i say ... the holiday season is approaching and i love to bake. but then of course, i come to the realization that we can't just live off of sugar. so enter, side left, brussels sprouts and apple slices.

hope you had a great weekend! xo

"i often dream that my life is just as it is now, only i have well behaved hair and i live in paris"

we had such a great time at tandem a few weeks ago, that we decided to go on another brunch date last weekend. there is this absolutely cozy little french bistro right above falls parks that overlooks the river. we have been once for dinner, but decided to try it out again for brunch.

the sun was shining and we sat on the patio looking out over the water. there was a woman at a table near us just hanging out with a bottle of champagne, dressed in black from head to toe, and reading a book. she looked so content. they brought coffee out to us while we waited on our food and we sipped and enjoyed the view of the colorful leaves. i've never been to france, but i imagine that this is what it is like. cool air and people sitting outside bistros reading books and drinking champagne. i looked at scofield and said, "i could totally live in france."
 ^ i ordered the nutella and banana crepe. while it was good, it didn't even compare to the crepes at tandem.
 ^ scofield's brunch on the other hand ... it was amazing! i kept trying to steal bites, but he wasn't having it ;)

coffee run

in partnership with zappos i styled my new paige jeans and freebird boots on a weekend coffee run. see more below!
with the temperatures cooling down, there's nothing like cozying up in a warm sweater and hat, and grabbing a cup of coffee to beat the chill.
 ^ starbucks holiday cups are here! which means christmas is almost here! which means i am freaking out with excitement!
when it comes to fall fashion and dressing warm, i am all about some jeans and boots. i recently ordered these freebird boots from zappos, and i am in love. i have to make myself take them off at the end of the day ... i would sleep in them if i could ;) i'm also all about investing in high quality items that will last a lifetime, like these freebird by steven boots. they handcrafted from start to finish, using a traditional goodyear construction, in which stacks of leather are hammered together and carefully stitched to create a virtually indestructible sole. this technique has been used to create the highest quality boots for centuries. worth.every.penny.
i recently discovered that zappos is more than just shoes! i am the only one who didn't know that!? probably. they have just as great of deals on a bunch of different clothing brands, like these paige jeans. i could live in them, too. they are so soft. not to mention paige adams-geller sits at the helm of paige as the only female founder in the denim industry, continuing to challenge convention and infuse her colorful spirit and chic sensibility to every collection she designs. you go girl!

around town || tandem creperie and coffeehouse

last weekend, scofield and i planned on getting up saturday morning and going out for breakfast. then, we decided to sleep in a little later and go to brunch. sleeping in a little later turned into sleeping in really late, so we ended up going out for lunch instead. you know how it goes ;). i've heard such great things about tandem, so i was super excited to finally get to try it out. i seriously cannot say enough good things. the decor, atmosphere, food, coffee... it is such a wonderful place!
 ^ i ordered the 'roasted roots' crepe, filled with sweet potatoes, rosemary, garlic, cheese, and balsamic. scofield ordered the 'monte cristo' and loved it as well. we both stuck with a savory crepe this go round, but i can't wait to go back and try the chocolate caramel or apple crisp one.
 ^ vanilla latte made with local, farm fresh whole milk. reminds me of our time in brazil a few years ago where it was strong espresso and whole milk every morning. such lovely memories.
 ^ the wind last weekend was insane. did i mention it snowed that morning? because it snowed that morning... on november 1st. crazy, right.

thanks for a wonderful, delicious morning tandem! can't wait to meet again!
