First Friday of November and I managed a TGIF post- this bodes well for the rest of the month. It’s going to be a crazy time leading up to the holidizzles, but an exciting one! We have our cake tasting this month, we’re seeing Iliza again, Thanksgiving, another wedding… all good things!

If you’re a Stranger Things fan, I really hope you’re following this twitter account.

No idea how I started following Alissa but I love her posts! How cute is her bar cart?

Speaking of prettiness for homes- woof. West Elm. You’ve outdone yourself with this duvet cover! One day, when I have a guest room, it’ll be pink.

In my perusal of Amazon where I just have a never-ending wish list that I rarely actually buy from- I found a Millennial Pink list. I have lots of thoughts about this which I will put in a whole other post but I’m just super loving this color.

I finally jumped on the loafer slide train with the Siena Haircalf Bow Loafer Slides. I got mine half off free but that’s a story for another time when I can get my life together and do an outfit shoot.

I <3 Hocus Pocus as much as the next witch, but what if it isn’t really a good movie? via Entertainment Weekly

Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday… the 13th! The creeper that I am on the inside is so excited that this October has a Friday the 13th. Tonight, we’re sending off Roxanne with a little goodbye bash at the Hawthorne and best wishes for her move to Chicago! Then tomorrow is my 10 year high school reunion at Town Hall. Can I just say 1. ew when did I get this old? and 2. my old self is thrilled that the reunion is walking distance from my apartment! I kind of can’t wait to see a couple of my best girls from St. Andrew’s and introduce Kendall to a few of the guys I’ve stayed in touch with.

Lately on the The CaroLøve:

I obv had to premier the witchy print above for Friday the 13th, but don’t forget that 20% of sales from my Marie print will go to Girls on the Rise for October’s Bullying Prevention Month!

Have you heard about the Coach name change? What do you think? (I hate it.)

No plans for little lions quite yet, but I would so take parenting advice from Dave Grohl’s mom.

Sorry Kendall, but there are actual psychological reasons I can’t stop won’t stop watching the Real Housewives franchise.

If you’re looking to donate to California in the wake of the fires, Naked Wines is collecting funds to help folks now and after the flames have died. Naked Wines actually supports family vineyards always and are ramping up their efforts to keep those vineyards alive through the fires and beyond.

Happy late summer fall Friday! My friends seem pretty split on the team summer/ team fall situation, but I know I for one and thrilled that I got to bust out my boots yesterday when it was below 60 as I got dressed for work. Plans this weekend include lunch at the Cathedral and maybe a nap?

My thoughts are with Florida this week. I grew up going back and forth a few times a year and have family and close family friends in both south Florida and the Keys. Please be safe, everyone!

Lately on The CaroLøve:

I found a really nifty app called Acorns for micro-investing that essentially lets you set it and forget it by investing spare change from purchases you’re already making. I honestly have no idea how to invest, but would like to learn (and save up for a down payment on a house), so this app seems just about right for me. I’ve read a ton of reviews, and it seems as though the one downside is a $12 annual fee for accounts under $5000. The best review I’ve seen about it is on Budgets are Sexy as it lays out all the pros and cons. Because of the nature of my new job, I’m waiting for approval to finish my signing up process, but I’d love to know if you’ve ever used it! If you’re interested in trying it out, you can use my link and get an automatic $5 with your first investment!

I’m all about shopping local and I’m so excited that Shop Made in DC is going to be a thing come October!

I really, really love trains, probably because my cool af grandfather collected models and took me on an overnight train trip when I was little. There’s a train trip in Canada I want to take with massive windows and NO WIFI so you can enjoy the sights of the country and the stars at night. SO DOWN.

As much as I sometimes get down on myself and my shape, I truly believe that fashion has no size.

There are really only so many ways you can arrange a one-bedroom apartment, but when I get that home, I’ll be taking note of these 14 Things Designers Notice the First Time They Enter Your Home.

Do you have this bootie (or one similar) in your shoe arsenal?

WOOHOO! New arrivals from Stella & Dot are here!

The boots from my Instagram story last night are still on sale at Macy’s for under $100! I’ve discovered that I need wide-calf boots and these could not fit/ feel better than they do!

Have a great weekend! Let me know what you’re getting up to!

Good morning and happy Friday, my loves ! I know there are a ton of really strong feelings about today’s inauguration but I think my favorite thing that I’ve seen is this letter that I came across on Facebook written by a man named Nevin Martel:

An open letter to everyone visiting Washington, D.C. this week:
Welcome to our home. This may simply be the nation’s capital to you, but this region is where millions of your fellow citizens raise their families, work hard, and strive to fulfill their dreams.
More than half of us were born elsewhere, so we can empathize with visitors. We know what it feels like to come here and feel like a stranger. If you find yourself lost, need help navigating public transportation, or are looking for a recommendation on where to eat or what to do, feel free to ask one of us.
We just have one ask of you.
Whether you’re here for the inauguration or to protest, please be respectful.
By all means make your voices heard. Commiserate. Celebrate. Champion a cause.
But don’t trash our home. Don’t insult the people who live here. Don’t make it hard for local business owners and their employees to do their jobs.
We hope you enjoy your time here and consider coming back again. Maybe when it isn’t as crowded, so you can get into all the museums you want to visit and it’s not difficult to get a reservation at the restaurant you want to try.
All the best,
A proud Washingtonian

Speaking of DC (as always), who remembers old(ish) Georgetown? When I was in college, I used to come home and, after a few crushes at Rugby, cry because I missed DC so much. Rugby, Third Edition, Rhino- those were my spots! My mom had a different set when she was hanging out there pre-Caroline, but Georgetown was her playground too with The Tombs, J. Paul’s, and Nathan’s.  And while some people believe that the fun, young life of Georgetown may be circling back around to what it was 10, even 5 years ago, restaurateur Fritz Brogan says DC is a different city now. And maybe it’s just me, but I much prefer HH chorizo quesadillas & too many margs at Mission to being called old & fat by a drunk college kid at Chinese Disco.

Girl, I feel ya (on some level) as a blogger. No we will not post your crap for free: Hair stylist to Marla Maples: No free services in exchange for Inauguration Day ‘exposure’.

One of my favorite things is when Daddy D makes me a grilled cheese. But this wine & cheese pairing ON A SAMMICH takes it to a whole new level.

As a yoga lover + a studier of trends, I’m digging the tropical look favored by yogis right now!

This weather is some nonsense right? Can’t make up its mind! Roxanne is here to help!

Be safe this weekend, whatever your plans are!
