In my ongoing attempt to avoid wearing so much black, I am going waaaay out on a limb this season and embracing grey. Not head-to-toe—although in varying shades, that can look fantastic—but as more of a punctuation. Check out how sophisticated Giovavanna Battaglia looks here: everything else she’s wearing can go ahead and be black and it doesn’t even matter because it looks like she made an such an effort with that coat (the belt helps too, of course; European women are fearless in the face of coat-belting).

You’ve got to pick through Piperlime’s new in-house collection to get to the good stuff, but it is definitely there—and well worth the search, as prices are fantastic. This clean-lined silk blouse, for instance, rings in at $79.
And this classic dolman sleeve V-neck sweater—which also comes in wine and cream—is $74.
This washed silk button-down is a bump more at $92, but less than half the price of not-dissimilar tops from Equipment the site’s also got on offer.
Our theme of the day is triangles, specifically as found on items for the home. I’m thinking it might be fun to trade in my sleepy old Moroccan poufs for this more geometric model.
A very Danish modern-style bowl from the folks at Ferm Living.
And why not a triangular cutting board for displaying your cheeses and charcuterie?
I just received the best care package maybe ever from the lovely folks over at White + Warren as thanks for doing this Q& A on their blog—which was really all my pleasure. Among the booty: one of their famous travel wraps, which especially thrilled me as I had left my previous (and beloved) White + Warren travel wrap on my seat after a flight to London a number of years ago. If, like me, you are always cold on airplanes, you must own this thing: it is super-soft, crazy warm, and lightweight enough that it only takes up a corner of your carry-on. It also doubles as a scarf, and comes in the most satisfying range of colors.
So usually not my thing—their gestalt is a little too preppy/tomboy for me—but there are so many cute ones this fall that I’m finding myself more than a little intrigued.
One might assume—given that I am old enough to require reading glasses in the first place—that I might also be grown-up enough to carry them in a proper eyeglass case, instead of jamming them into my bag and expecting that they will not, over time, become scratched and mangled shadows of their former selves. And yet I have not achieved this level of maturity. And—given that I am me—I imagine that the only thing that will inspire me to do so is the acquisition of a really spiff case. This one from Il Bisonte might do the trick.
As—but of course—might this.
Here’s an option so pretty it’s almost sculptural.
Lingering in my shopping cart even as I type is this excellent drop sleeve top from Emerson Fry—a lot of print even by my standards, but in a color palette that keeps things more elegant than screamy.
