Back To School 2014

Is it me or does August just keep getting shorter and shorter? What used to feel like the dog days of summer, now feels like a 50 yard dash.  

*Line'em up, Move'em out...

In a blink, it's over.  

Never mind that I haven't been back to school since 2006, I am feeling the overwhelming need to find that perfect outfit and killer accessories that bring me back to the fall of 1986.  

The Backpack

Survey Backpack, $99.99

Herschel makes my favorite backpacks and the Fall 2014  Survey top's my list. Oh and this one feel fresh but reminds me of my favorite c. 1988 (old school) Banana Republic Field Bag.

While I am on the topic of Herschel, their little Network Pouches Make the Perfect Accessories for everything from pencils to lip gloss. 

Current/Elliott's Buddy Trouser tops my lust worthy, might have to save my penny's all fall, top favorite. . .Gucci Inspired, Must Have, Pants list! 

Rag & Bone, $70

I would pair it now with a classic tank, like this one from Rag and Bone in Navy.

My closet has a real chance of acquiring this field jacket by one of my fav's House Of Harlow.  @ $155 it's a must, and if that's not enough of a sign, I actually own this Whiskey & Lace shirt.

Think I'll Stay For A While!

See you next week.

Riddle Me... A Fiddle Leaf Fig



1."Hit a grand slam" and add architectural and organic elements to your space.

2.  Create Balance and Symmetry Without Adding The Weight Of Furniture.

3. Fill in an empty corner. . .



 Fiddle Leaf Figs need tons of natural daylight. If they don't get enough their leaves will turn yellow and then brown and just fall right off. If you see any of the above, try to immediately move them to a room with an abundance of light.

The entire blogospher is all over the place as to how much to water a Fiddle Leaf Fig. When I bought mine, Jesse (Campbell's Nursery) told me to be sure and water my new ficus tree. . .that a gallon a week was about ideal. I have stuck to that philosophy and "Figgy" is still doing great. My sweet tree even made it through six months in the basement with all the light I had to offer.

Improve the drainage and invest in a cheap plastic tray for the bottom of the pot. Make sure there is a drainage hole in the bottom of the pot. Excess water will be temporarily stored and absorbed when needed.

Top the top of the basket with a pretty lime green moss and cover the dirt. 

I hope you love your Fiddle Leaf Fig as much as I love mine!
