BECAUSE YOU KNOW I'M ALL ABOUT THAT....BUFF CHECK

Oh my friends,
It's the season from here on out I will fondly call Buffalo Check season.

I work in Menswear and I have to say, buffalo check is is one of my favorite patterns to run during the holiday season. It's bold, classic, and great for guys & girls alike.

Here are a handful of awesome red + black buff check items you've GOT to grab this year!



1.  Oh, let's begin with some classic Pendleton, shall we? This clutch (currently on sale!)  is 98% lady and 2% lumberjack. 

2&3: This tote is just right for Farmer's Markets...and this backpack is MADE for a chilly camping trip.

4. I don't think I am quite cool enough to rock a mini belt bag- but if I was, this one would absolutely be my choice.

5. I know I've shared this C.Wonder blanket before- but if you're not into 100% wool blankets, this one is for you!

6. This scarf is perfectly androgynous enough for you to wear...or for your boyfriend to steal. Or vice versa.

7. Looking to make your home decked out in Buffalo Check? These throw pillows from Faribault Woolen Mill will give your pad the cabin feel!

8.  Say it with me: Buffalo. Check. Wallets. 

9.  The #1 thing from this list that I want to scoop up is the Faribault Woolen Mills 100% Wool, Made in the USA blanket. I want it for picnics, and camping trips, and early winter bonfires! 

Which of these Buffalo Check beauties would you love to have?
If anyone feels like sending me that Faribault blanket, you'd be my favorite person ever...

BEST BITES: QUINOA CAPRESE SALAD

I can't believe I haven't shared this recipe yet.

Ridiculous.

It's one of my vegetarian, healthy recipes that even the carnivores in my life love. 
It's ridiculously easy to make, and it's full of protein and fiber. The mozzarella is creamy and salty, the sundried tomatoes are slightly sweet, and the quinoa is super filling!
What you need to make it happen:
- 1 cup quinoa
- Basil leaves
- 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
- 1/2 cup mini mozzarella balls
- olive oil (preferably garlic or basil infused!)
- salt & pepper to taste

How to make it happen:
Step 1: Cook your quinoa to the directions on the package, and set aside to let cool.
Step 2: Once cooled, stir in your basil, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, and 2 tablespoons olive oil.
Step 3: Season to taste with salt & pepper.

Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve!
 Garnish with a few basil leaves:

FALL FLOWERS.

Happy Monday you wonderful people!

I know sometimes my Monday recaps can be pretty chatty- but this week I'll keep it short & sweet with 4 fabulous things:


1.  Every year I make this Cranberry Apple Galette about twice- and this weekend was one of those times. We had a fabulous Friendsgiving dinner and this treat, per usual, got rave reviews!

2. Fall flowers man. I dig 'em. 

3. AHHH. Is anyone else obsessing over the Faribault Woolen Mills items at Target? I CAN'T DECIDE WHAT TO GET. The throws? The zip pouches? The most affordable, quality items Target has had in a while. LOVE.



4. This week's recipe is a major favorite. I actually made it a while back and forgot to post about it- get ready- it is SUPER healthy, but SUPER delicious.

Alright, has anyone bought anything from the Faribault for Target collection?
If you have, you've got to tell me what you bought!!

NOVEMBER IN THE MIDWEST

Oh fall, don't go!

We've had such a perfect fall this year- I'm in complete denial that it has to go to let winter in. Michael and I hung out just the two of us this weekend (sorry, we're not Halloween people!) and enjoyed the sunny & chilly November weather of Madison.

Kale flowers. WHY can't we all figure out how to have these available yearround? So gorgeous!

This picture LOOKS like it was taken in July- but it was just a usual Saturday in November. We grabbed some popcorn and beer and enjoyed the Terrace before they take the chairs away for winter!

I've passed by this red door probably....23243459 times in my 8 years in Madison, and I've always wanted a picture with it. I don't know why- just weird like that I guess? Either way- wish fulfilled this weekend!

 Compulsive gradient ordering of the leaves. Yup. Can't stop won't stop.

This week's pick of the week is this awesome clutch/makeup pouch:

What did you do this weekend, friends?
Any good Halloween costumes?

NEW ARRIVALS: THE LATE FALL EDITION

Oh my friends, it's that time of the year.
The air is crisp, the leaves are falling off the trees.

It's Sweater Weather! Scarf Weather! Boot Weather!

Here are my top 5 picks from ShopBop late fall arrivals:

1. Buffalo Check Blanket: Mmmkay, if you take anything away from this post- it's that you NEED this buffalo check blanket by C.Wonder. Buffalo Check is everywhere this season, and this blanket is the perfect iteration of it!

2. Quilted Gloves: These Carolina Amato gloves are beyond sophisticated-and perfect for anything from apple picking to an evening out.

3. Marc by Marc Jacobs Chain Bracelet: This is definitely a go-with-everything accessory- but would you expect anything less from Marc?

4. Baggu Leather Clutch: When I think Baggu I always think of those thin reusable market bags from J.Crew...so when I saw this clutch (and for only $54...WHAT.) I did a major double take. Love. Love.

5. Sorel Boots: If the late fall wherever you live is anything like the one we're likely to get here in Wisconsin, you're going to want a pair of great waterproof boots- like these fabulous Sorel ones!


Which item from the Top 5 would you grab?
I mean, mine is that buffalo check blanket..so bonus points to you if that's your favorite...

xo, lp
