Just a few of the things we’re reading, watching, loving, and finding on the interwebs lately.

Even more from #NYFW — from the best in street style to Harper’s Bazaar’s picks to Vogue’s picks to more street style.  Do you have any favorites?

Chloe Warner’s 1920s French-cottage style home. — Does anyone else l-o-v-e house tours?! Chloe describes her space as both kid-friendly and chic-traditional. We love the colors and layers.

This site for all you need to know about apples and where to pick them this fall — We look forward to u-pick at our local apple orchard all year long! Bring on the crisps and pies and fritters.

Speaking of apples and pie this Dutch Apple Pie with Toffee Sauce must be part of our fall baking plans. — We love this line from Ashley’s post: “after a long day of battling the fear of the new we all need a bit of comfort and sometimes that comes in the form of pie piled high with apples and a deep heady toffee sauce”
