my fall essentials

unruly things / fall essentials

I spend all summer dreading the days when the temps begin to drop, but in reality, I love fall.  secretly I am excited to pull out my boots and cozy up in a big sweater.  fall weather where I live in Bend can be tricky, so I’ve had to master the art of layering.  it can be super chilly in the mornings then warm up significantly during the day.  my favorite thing to wear in the fall are simple tees, a long thick sweater and leggings with boots.

what are your fall essentials?

one : edith miller striped boatneck tee / two : zara long sweater with turn over collar / three : fay andrada nasta earrings / four : clare vivier la posta bag / five : gap knit leggings / six : butter london gobsmacked polish / seven : salt braun optical glasses / eight : happy socks cheetah socks / nine : alima pure fig lip tint / ten : barr co. hand salve / eleven : la botte gardiane ankle boots

Unruly Things : Hackwith Design House  //  photos by Wreckless Creative

I don’t even remember how I first discovered Hackwith Design House but I’ve since come to love the brand and every piece they’ve designed.  their fall collection is centered around limited edition pieces, which they have released every Monday since September.  I started haunting their Instagram account as they began debuting new things into their collection.  I found myself loving each one so you can imagine how hard it was to contain my excitement when the Hackwith gals contacted me to partner with them on the release of one of their limited edition pieces.

the top they sent me is the Burnt Sienna and mine is number 3/14!  the bleach spots are so unique and I love how versatile the top is.  it’s just so so good.  I could easily dress it up or down and I see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe.  thanks so much to the ladies behind Hackwith Design House for sending it to me.

bite + sip : my favorite teas

I’m a tea drinker.  I drink it every day, in the morning and afternoon.  sure, I enjoy coffee every now and then too, but rarely brew my own.  tea is my caffeination of choice.  it’s so versatile and there are so many different kinds to try!  with Fall in the air and the temperatures dropping, I thought this would be the perfect time to share with you a few of my favorite teas.

every morning with breakfast, I drink chai.  one of my favorites is Vanilla Spiced from Townshends, right here in Bend.  but recently I tried Blue Lotus Chai and loved it.  it’s super easy to make and doesn’t require steeping!  I’m also loving the chai blend from Lonepine Coffee {shown below} also in Bend.  this rooibos chai is an excellent, non-caffeinated chai if you’re not looking for a little pick-me-up.  I like my chai strong, sweetened with honey or brown sugar and almond milk.

when I’m drinking green tea, I love jasmine.  my new favorite is Mint Leaf Jasmine and an old standby is Silver Leaf Jasmine.

I don’t drink much white tea, but I recently tried this Coconut Creme White from The Art of Tea and it’s AMAZING.  I was drinking it by the pitcher iced this summer and I’ll be enjoying it with a splash of almond milk hot as the temperatures dip.

and of course the right teaware is essential.  I love our little teapot.  it’s the perfect size for two cups!  it’s important to me to have a good mug.  and my new mug by Shino Takeda from Vuela Boutique is just right.  there are lots of great things at Vuela Boutique for tea drinking and the kitchen.  tea towels, spoons {which measure out tea or honey perfectly}, mugs and more.  have a look.

do you drink tea?  what are you favorites?

Unruly Things // currently coveting : fall from Madewell

Madewell usually has a way of killing it with their fall collection, leaving me feeling a little more empty in the wallet.  but this season is exceptional.  the styling, the colors, the absoulte comfort of every look?  I could do it all.  and this is coming from a gal who has been holding onto summer for as long as possible!  have a peek for your self.  I’ve got this and these in my shopping cart.  and this on my serious wishlist.

also why is it that when I’ve just finally grown my bangs out that I’m dying for a chop upon seeing these pictures?  that model’s hair is banging.
