Introducing ERLŪM Alpaca

After so many vague allusions to my "new job," "latest project," "big news," etc., I'm so excited to finally be able to share this with you! The luxury knitwear line I've co-founded, ERLUM Alpaca, officially launched last week. ERLUM's debut collection consists of high quality, ethically handmade alpaca knitwear for women, timeless classics with a modern edge. 

I've been working on this for over two years now, quitting my job last March to focus on it exclusively. After so many hours spent refining our vision, revising prototypes, and agonizing over every little detail down to the gift boxes and hangtags, to have the website up and our debut collection available for sale is surreal to say the least. For me, this launch represents not only the first big career milestone that I've been proud of, but also so many lessons learned along the way, so many instances of stepping out of my comfort zone and pushing past fear and self-doubt when I didn't think it was possible. 

Over the years, I've been so thankful for the support and encouragement you've shown me. As I enter this exciting new chapter of my life and career, I have a favor to ask of you, dear blog readers... Please check out our website, www.erlumalpaca.com and find us on InstagramFacebookTwitter, and Pinterest. It would also mean so much to me if you would check out the line and share the line with anyone you know who might appreciate it!

J.Crew New Arrivals September 2015

Happy first day of fall, blog friends! After a series of seasons that were less than exciting, I was in total fall heaven while perusing J.Crew's latest catalog. This fall it's all about the classics, shaken up a bit with a lusciously rich color palette. I tend to gravitate towards neutrals, and as a general rule only make exceptions for colors that are good enough to stop me in my tracks. This collection includes so many shades that are vibrant enough to do just that, some highlights being cognac, rust, olive green, paprika, and the perfect cadet blue. The glorious color combination possibilities are endless! Here are some pieces that top my J.Crew wish list this fall--

P.S. J.Crew is offering all kinds of special promotions right now-- FREE Shipping today only, 30% final sale styles, and 25% everything else!

Fall 2015 Fashion Inspiration

With fall right around the corner, I'm getting awfully excited to pull out my long sleeved tees and cozy cardigans. (It's still hot here, so I don't dare to think of heavy coats and scarves just yet. Small goals.) Fall is my absolute favorite season, so for me, these next couple months hold so much to be excited about. Like baking my first loaf of pumpkin bread and my first day of fall ritual-- watching You've Got Mail and lighting pumpkin spice candles while I decorate our house for fall. 

I've already begun pinning some fall fashion inspiration, only serving to exacerbate my deep longing for autumn to arrive. When the weather begins to cool, I'll be craving warm neutrals, lots of denim, brown suede, black and white stripes, crisp white shirts, and a classic camel coat. (Thankfully I invested in the perfect one last year!) 
Here are some of the images I'm feeling most inspired by...
