Another weekend is here! It's a gorgeous autumn day and I plan to spend it at home with my family, doing "fall" things like Oktoberfest and going to my little brother's football game. It's so nice to come back from the city scene to the countryside to enjoy the beautiful colors! And of course, to cuddle with the dogs (most importantly). Here are a few things that were on my radar this week, plus a few other links to enjoy during your down time.

I've been working from home this week with a horrible cold. I may blame my weekend trip to NYC for the sudden sickness, but it was a wonderful time spent with college friends and a much needed reunion. Now that I'm back, I'm hoping to really get back to blogging on a more regular basis. Meanwhile, some days are meant to be spent in bed and home alone with good movies and books and cozy pajamas. Here's to all the little things that make a sick day a bit more enjoyable.

Lucie at the Four Seasons George V

The Coveteur's feature on the beautiful Lucie de la Falaise is a dream. The model and lovely lady is not only known for her close friendship to the famous Kate Moss, but also for her work with Yves and Dior, and basically all things designer royalty. And she sure does know how to play and look the part.

"Okay, so while we know it all sounds very ripped-from-the-pages-of-Vogue (only because it well, is), upon arriving at de la Falaise‚Äôs suite of the Four Seasons George V, we found the model and mom to be nothing short of, well, completely lovely. In that sense, we mean, the whole lady-like Dior connection kind of makes sense."

I'm drooling over Lucie's gorgeous gowns and cocktail dress, the pumps, the perfectly pink and feminine overcoat over the cigarette pants. The cat eye chicness. One can only dare to dream of being so impeccably stylish. Something to strive for, no? See more photos and read about the visit here.
