I love warm weather just as much as the next girl, but there’s something about the beginnings of fall that I get so excited about. It was summer when I left to go to the US two weeks ago, but when I came back the weather had cooled down and it’s had me thinking about sweaters, plaid, and leather jackets. Shop some of my favorite pieces for fall {and also check out a great curated selection of items for fall here.}

DIY Hair Mask

I’ve been using this mask weekly and have been loving it, it leaves my hair super soft and shiny, and I’ve also noticed it’s been a little more resistant to the London humidity. It does not smell good, so brace yourselves, but the results are so worth it, I promise!

Ingredients

+ 1/2 ripe avocado
+ 2/3 cup Greek yogurt
+ 1 egg
+ 1 tablespoon Manuka honey
+ 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Directions

Combine all ingredients. Apply to clean, wet hair, in sections, focusing on the ends. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. You can tie your hair up and put a hair cap on it to keep it out of the way. Shampoo the mask out, condition, and style as normal.

Back in London

Sorry for the silence — again! This summer has been filled with travels and while I’ve loved it it hasn’t left much time for other things that I love, like blogging. I got to go to Dallas for work {my first time there!} and then to Annapolis to visit with my family. It was so nice to be back in the US and spend so much time with friends and family. I’m back at work and getting back into my routine now , but prepping for a fun trip to Venice next weekend. I think could get used to this jet-setting thing. :) This weekend was quiet, at home in London with Matt, and above are a few moments I captured. I hope you enjoy!

Where has the summer gone? I can’t believe August is here already and soon we’ll be thinking about sweaters, leather, boots, and jackets. Until then I’m soaking up the warm weather and these are a few items I’m loving for the last few weeks of summer. Those Madewell shorts are on major sale {I own a few pairs and they are my go-tos}, and the scallops on those flats are such a sweet detail. Here’s to soaking up the last few weeks of summer!

We’re slowly getting over jet lag and getting used to life back in London after being in the U.S. for two weeks. This weekend was super chilled out and involved lots of reading {the new issue of Porter is fab}, organizing {mainly shoes as my favorite shoe shelves are no longer in existence since we’ve moved}, and wine on the deck. It’s great to be back and I’m looking forward to some more traveling coming up — more on that soon!

Hope your weekend was fabulous!
