Tory Burch Holiday Window Display

Am I the only one who used the labor of 20 tiny little fingers to wrap my Christmas presents this year?  In my defense, my nieces were thrilled to help and they'll be excited to tell their cousins they wrapped the hilarious little packages {they managed to use twice the necessary paper}.

I should probably have taken a lesson from Tory Burch's window people as their holiday window display features straight lines of brightly colored ribbons.  My pictures are terrible as usual but the glossy ribbons looked really nice, I'm loving the woven plaid look.

Fun fact!  Handbags from Tory Burch and Kate Spade are returned the most often at Nordstrom according to the sales person I spoke with.  They're so pretty but, knowing that, I'll save my money for another brand.

J Crew Christmas Window Display

I love this winter/Christmas window display at J. Crew {I know I always say this but I don't photograph the ones I don't love}.  It's very subtle with the Christmas theme, only some balls on one of the trees, but it's nicely done with the black background. 

Many seasons they will use fabric patterns in their window display backgrounds but that doesn't seem to be the case here. Instead, it looks like they're using up the gold paper from the fall display.

Bon Me Cambridge

To me, it's always a bit strange when a food truck turns into a restaurant.  I think it's great for the food truck that they have that much of a following, but it's one of those things where you get used to making due with the long lines, the weather, and the lack of places to sit.  Bon Me is one of those trucks that now has a few locations.  And, though there's one near my office I've never been to, I took advantage of a work field trip to visit the Cambridge location.

The food was the same, the coffee was also the same {stale and not worth trying but for some reason I always forget this when I see the word coffee}, but the interior was super cheerful with brightly colored lighting and had the cutest wooden stools.

Cute doesn't always mean comfortable so I sat on the bench while my dining companion grabbed a stool.  Don't feel bad, I think she wanted to sit on it because it was cute.

Club Monaco :: Summer/Winter Window Display

This is actually a summer display as you can tell from the clothes, but I think the white yarn that serves as a backdrop actually looks like snow!  Maybe a better name for it is a seasonally ambiguous window display?  It looks nice and soft, whatever it's meant to be.

Fall is my favorite time of the year.  In the city it can feel like more of the same but with greyer days and colder winds.

The water in the harbor gets darker and more ominous.

yep, those are sheep in the harbor with some cormorant buddies

Elsewhere in New England the leaves are changing color and the grass is still green for another few days or weeks.

a real sheep farm

The colors and the chill in the air make it my favorite season.  What's yours?

J. Crew :: Fall Window Display

Fall is here!  At least in New England we have fall weather, perfect for jackets and sweaters, and the leaves are starting to change colors!  There is very little that makes me this happy about any other season.

I love the gold leaves of this J. Crew window display.  They didn't photograph as well as I would have liked {I was in a different mall than normal during daylight hours, and I'm pretty sure Paul Blart fell out of one of those skylights} but it's pretty nonetheless.

Carpet Shopping

Recently I was carpet shopping at a local showroom and spotted this cutely patterned, nicely textured carpet.  It was much too rough of a wool to use in a place where bare feet are present but I do love the warm colors and the pattern.
