I ran out of pre-scheduled posts, so we’re back to bloggin’ in real time! (From bed at 9 p.m. in the pitch black because that’s what happens when you’re sharing a hotel room with a toddler. 😂) But I’m really excited about this post because I’m sharing photos from yesterday, which was jam-packed with family fun.

Hello from New York

Halogen Bateau Neck Sweater (Runs slightly large; order regular size or down one. This is my favorite cashmere sweater, btw, which is from the same line and only $89!) / Burberry ScarfDavid Lerner Suede Leggings (Love the leather pair, too.) / Kate Spade Block Heel Leopard Pumps (Also love the mules. More affordable block heel option: Talbots Leopard Pumps.) / Goyard Tote (Available herehere and here.)

Hello from New York! I know I just wore a very similar outfit on the blog yesterday (down the shoes!), but as I mentioned, I’ve been living in these suede leggings. I just love that I can simply throw ’em on and look relatively put together in only a couple of minutes. 🙈

7 Preppy Sweater Blazers for Fall

Boucle Boyfriend Sweater Blazer (I’m wearing a size U.S. 4. — Also love this one, this one and this one. And the J.Crew camel one is an all-time fave, available at Nordstrom as well.) / AG Jeans (This pair and this pair feature the same cut, and this is my favorite pair of skinnies from Rag & Bone.) / Talbots Leopard Block Pumps (On sale! Also love this similar pair from Kate Spade, which are crazy comfy.) / Scalloped Cami (Other options here, here and here.) / Goyard Tote (Available here, here and here.) / Monica Vinader Bracelet c/o

All hail the sweater blazer. If you’re like me and are freezing all the time (like, even in July 🙄), you need one of these gifts from god for fall and winter. Good lord, I hope they never go out out style. When I wear one, I feel like I’m getting that same polished look normally achieved by wearing a normal blazer… but I’m cozy and warm. How to wear one? With a button-down shirt (even a flannel!), a tee, or a silky camisole. (I love this scalloped cami. Some other great options here, here and here.) It’s a quick and easy look, and you really can’t mess it up!

Cookin’ with Mitch: Honey Butter Fried Chicken

Gingham Apron / Emma’s Outfit

Mitch here!

Listen, I don’t mess around. I, Mitch Larkin, have a cooking column on a blog, and today I’m sharing my favorite recipe of all time. This is the meal my mom makes for me on my birthday. If Kelly cooked, this is the recipe she would make for me… um… I can’t finish this sentence because the concept of Kelly cooking me dinner is too bizarre to imagine. 😝

Recent Finds, 10/13

Matte Tall Yellow Hunter Boots (Also in glossy, and in the shorter version here.) / Hudson Skinny Jeans (Just ordered this pair and can’t wait to try ’em!) / Tuckernuck Scarf (Old, but love this plaid scarf and this Barbour wrap!) / Newer version of the Striped Turtleneck (On J.Crew.com, too. Also love the striped tissue turtleneck, which you can find on J.Crew.com, too. Wear mine constantly!)

A cute story:

Before Mitch and I started dating, we’d run into each other on the subway or on the platform in the Bronx, as we both took the 4,5,6 train to work every day. We’d pretend not to see each other, and when the train stopped at 149th Street, I’d book it as fast as I could to avoid awkwardness. (I blushed a deep shade of lobster red every time I saw him, and it was very embarrassing. 😳)

Hi, Friends! The Larkins are flying to New York today, and we’re so excited. We’re going because my family is having a big celebration for Grammie’s 85th–happy birthday, Gram!–but we’ve been feeling a little homesick for NYC lately so we decided to stay a full week.

Mitch and I are beyond touched by the response to yesterday’s post. Thank you. Our hearts are full today, and we’re incredibly grateful for your support and understanding. :) I’m going to write a post soon that addresses some of the questions you asked regarding the life change, but today is actually Mitch’s birthday… so we’re goin’ with something a bit more lighthearted for Wednesday’s post. 😊

Happy birthday, Mitch! We love you so much!
