Okay, so this is super pricey. Ridiculously pricey. BUT it is so super cool that we had to share it with you. It’s The Silver Tear Woodie Camper from Orvis. Complete with mahogany body, convertible sleeping,  and sitting quarters, awning windows, freshwater facet, maple countertops and stainless – steel coolers.

I’ve been dying to go camping – this is certainly the way to go!

Red Brooks Brothers pants on boys could not be any cuter. Adore the ribbon belt, navy blazer and desert boots. Red and Navy stripes on a perfect grey sweatshirt (I want that for myself!). Love it all!

Check out Brooks Brother’s Blog – it’s full of fun facts and tips for dressing your favorite Rogues and Gentlemen. Great thoughts on Etiquette and Style. Observations on all things guy. Really great posts on things like Seven Recipes Every Gentleman Should Know By Heart.

Well done, Brooks!

Banda Coffee Table. Serena & Lily.

We love this coffee table by Serena & Lily. Hand woven of sustainable rattan, it is super airy. Love it for a sunroom but it would be a fun addition to an otherwise formal living room or library. I happen to have two sofas that I’m sure it would love to sit in front of right now. If the sofas are extra long then a pair would be perfect.

Luckily, it’s on sale now at Serena & Lily so I better grab it quickly…

Keep Your Pies Safe! Park Hill Collection Pie Safe

Fall is in the air and we hope it is filled with the smell of delicious autumnal pies!  Cherry Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie… yes, please!  Why not protect your baked goods from little hands and secret bites with this wooden pie safe from the Park Hill Collection.

We think that this classic piece would look great on the countertop in a country kitchen or displayed on a hutch in a dining room.  This would also make a perfect gift for the favorite baker in your life.

Meet Binky. LK Bennett Wedge.

I love many things at LK Bennett but I think my first purchase for Fall might have to be this Binky Wedge. Isn’t it the cutest everyday shoe? Love the little heel with anything – jeans, pants, skirts – the works. The spectator details are adorable too.

The beauty of LK Bennett is that whether you’re wearing a ballet flat, a wedge or a super high platform they are so comfortable. Truly.

LK Bennett is a British Company founded by Linda Bennett in London in 1990. Luckily, she has has opened a store in Chicago. Please visit LK Bennett at 900 North Michigan Avenue or call 312.374.0958.

Guess who else loves LK Bennett? Check out the chicest customer here.

The Lake Forest Shop. A New Look.

I have to be honest. I wasn’t too familiar with the line Magaschoni until stepping into The Lake Forest Shop recently. Ellen Stirling, the  owner, buyer and creative genius behind The Lake Forest Shop is a huge fan of Magaschoni. In addition to a slew of perfect little cashmere sweaters by Magaschoni we found these two dresses which are adorable for Fall.

Everyone needs a couple of reliable dresses for the Fall/Holiday season. With school or work events, luncheons, holiday parties, buffet dinners and meetings starting up again and I’m thinking these look just perfect. Super cute for when the weather gets a little chilly, right? I’d love them with great chocolate brown boots too.

We hope you’ll run into The Lake Forest Shop to take a peak at these little numbers and the store’s new look.

The Lake Forest Shop . 265 Market Square. Lake Forest, IL. 847.234.0548.
