A little late is better than never, right? Hope you’ve had a wonderfully relaxing Labor Day, my friends! I spent the long weekend on Nantucket, celebrating both my 28th birthday and Mackenzie & Will’s wedding, and couldn’t have had a better time. In fact, Lauren and I are already planning our trip next summer! I’ll be posting a little travel guide of sorts later this week… So many great spots to shop, eat, drink, etc.
I’m currently on a flight to Paris for a fun little work project this week and I’m so so so excited to be back in my favorite city! But between Nantucket and Paris, I spent last night and the first half of today in Boston and forgot just how much I liked it there. The first and last time I visited Boston when I was in 8th grade on a school trip and I remember calling my mom and exclaiming that one day I would live in Beacon Hill. 15 years later and I guess my tastes haven’t changed that much… 13 year old Jess knows what’s up! I’ve made a mental note to book a trip and spend some more time there, a quick 18 hour stay was definitely not enough.
Talk soon! xx JRS
Here’s what’s been on my radar over the last week or so…
First and foremost, I can’t say how saddened I am by the devastation in the south from Hurricane Harvey. I’ve donated to a few different organizations over the last week… You can find a great list of ways to help and where to donate here on the NY Times! There’s also an Amazon Wish List here where you can order items to be sent to those in need.
Lauren just got back from the south of France and the French Riviera is now at the top of my travel list! Crossing my fingers and toes I can make it happen next summer. Check out her Saint Tropez travel guide here!
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect fall bootie and I think this pair may just be it. Great toe shape, the heel is only 3″, and I’ve heard they’re insanely comfortable. Plus, you know the brand makes quality shoes that last! (They’re also available in navy here!)
Almost all of Jacey’s ten travel tips are tricks I swear by, too!
This blue and white home is what dreams are made of… I’d happily move in tomorrow and stay forever! See the full tour here and here. 💙💙💙
Oh em gee… How stunning is Jess’ master bath renovation?!
After being on Nantucket, I’m gravitating towards all of the little woven baskets! How cute is this one?!
Absolutely love Natalie’s living room!
Speaking of living rooms, I fell in love with Mackenzie’s family’s Nantucket home this weekend! You can see their living room here and their powder room here!

10 of the top trends to know for fall!
This jacket was a major splurge when I was on Nantucket (bought it at Perch!), but let’s just count it as a birthday gift to myself? It’s just so dang cute, I couldn’t leave the store without it. (And it actually came in handy on my trip when it was 60 and raining on Sunday in both Boston and Nantucket!)
Another splurge from the same designer… How great is this sequin tank? Waiting for it to go on sale!
On a bit of a design kick right now, can you tell? haha Can’t get over how much I love Lauren’s living room… It’s just as cute in person! (And my home away from home when I go back to NYC… 👌🏼)
Hallie has this little tee and I’m obsessed with it!
I just bought this lightweight striped sweater at Old Navy and I’ve worn it countless times already. Highly recommend!
A cute going out top under $50 that’s perfect to layer under your moto jackets this fall. It’s totally appropriate year round, depending on your layers!
Love the color of this cozy cardigan!
I mentioned this a few weeks ago, but my favorite lace dress is back on the market! You can wear it on it’s own when the weather allows, with tights, under a moto jacket, or even with a turtleneck layered underneath!
