Happy Friday, Friend!  I made it to South Carolina yesterday, and today I’m soaking in what feels like the last of summer’s rays with my girlfriends.  If you have any Charleston recommendations, I’d love to hear them!

For this week, I really took a turn in my house to focus more on fall and it inevitably arrives (regardless of the fact that summer didn’t quite make an appearance yet…)

The List Week 36

No. 1 IN GREAT SHAPE – the shape and scale of this hexagon mirror from West Elm is just wonderful.  I love how simple and understated it is.

No. 2 COMING SOON – The new Sinnerlig collection from Ikea (due out in October) is absolutely gorgeous.  Simple lines, organic materials, and such a gorgeous color palette.  I love everything.

No. 3 THROWBACK – There is just something about marbled enamel that makes me feel way more autumnal. It’s a throwback to the 19th century, but I still love the campfire feeling it evokes! A few pieces around the house like this marble enamel pitcher in this neutral brown will be perfect for fall.

No. 4 FALL GOALS – I need to get back in shape stat. I am going to start doing yoga with my mom (this beautiful yoga mat might help me get motivated and I’m also going to start the Bikini Body program right after this long girls weekend (I need to get ready for our December Caribbean trip!!)  Has anybody done this program before?  How do you feel about it?

No. 5 UMM APPLES – This week I made this sweet and savory apple tart and it turned out wonderfully!  It’s so easy too. I cut a round of puff pastry and curled up the edges to create a crust. Then I topped the raw tart dough with a mixture of oven roasted apples & shallots (1 apple and 1 small shallot, sliced thin, then coated in olive oil, S&P, and fresh thyme, then baked at 400 for 15 minutes)  Once the roasted apples/shallots were on the dough, I dotted it with blue cheese and sprinkled a little more S&P and thyme.  An easy and delicious pre-fall snack!

I hope you all have a great long holiday weekend ahead of you too! See you here next week!
