Five Things I'm Loving Right Now

1. Emily Ley Paper
Because of my current profession, I have become somewhat of an expert on all things paper. This is a company that was introduced to me recently and I adore her stuff! Her social stationary is adorable - very simple and classic - and her wedding invitations are gorgeous! Check her out here. Below is my personal favorite!

2. My Lilly Pulitzer umbrella
There have been some seriously rainy days in DC lately but I always get compliments on this super cute umbrella!

...and my Lilly Pulitzer thermal mug.
I have been making tea for myself on these cool, Fall mornings and this mug never fails to cheer me up while I am in the midst of my morning grumpiness.

3. Figs
I am mildly obsessed with figs and they are only in season during the Fall. I have a couple recipes I use with figs, including a really simple one - figs stuffed with goat cheese and drizzled with honey - yum! My favorite way to eat figs is on pizza! A local DC area restaurant called Clyde's has a seasonal pizza called the Figgy Piggy pizza. The pizza is covered with a fig spread, prosciutto and blue cheese. I am obsessed with it and will be attempting to make one for a jewelry party I am having next weekend - more on that later...

4. Mumford and Sons
I am obsessed with this British group! There most popular song is 'Little Lion Man' (listen below) but some of my other favs are: 'The Cave', 'White Blank Page', and 'Roll Away Your Stone'. Hoping I can see them in concert very soon!

5. My Target Drape Front Sweater
I love Target all year round but I especially love it when I am looking to do some Fall shopping on a budget. I wear this sweater all the time - love it with a colorful tank or an embellished t-shirt. And for $20 - you can't beat that!
