Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley August 24, 2019

Hello! This weekend is a relaxing one for me, the kids are back in school so I’ve settled into my routine. The weather is still so warm so I’m off to a barbeque to hangout with some old friends today, and tomorrow I’ve got a date with a to do list I’ve been neglecting. Hope you all are taking some time to relax as well!

Favorite links from the week:


I’d be snug as a bug in this cozy cabin (love the dark painted walls).

I love the details and contrast in this Scandinavian home.

Proof a bright color runner looks fab on stairs!

Ooooh pretty! This powder room tile.

Easy and practical DIY: rope ottomans.

Wow, I’m impressed! Check out this video on the cleverest way to put on a duvet cover.

What a cute gift idea: terrarium candles.

Moto Jackets Under $75

By Kate Riley August 22, 2019

Have I ever told you I ride a Vespa? One of my favorite things to do is ride it around town to the market or a fitness class. After a trip to Europe, I saw it’s how many of them get around and I wanted to live like that too, so I bought myself one a few years ago.


I’m in my forties and my fashion choices have changed, my style is edgier than ever before. In my twenties, when I was a young lawyer I would spend money on nice suits. In my thirties, I wore more casual cardigans and athleisure wear. It’s fun to reinvent yourself a few times in life and fashion is one way to do it. In the fall I now wear mostly moto jackets as my top layer, especially when I ride.

I added these four new moto jackets to my wardrobe this season. I’m wearing the rose pink one in my new profile picture, and the black one I’m wearing is this faux leather floral jacket, my new favorite!
