Vested Interest

It’s that time of year when the weather can still be a bit tricky. Find the happy medium by stocking up on vests to get you through the awkward stretch. You can also wear them under a coat when the temperatures really take a dive!

The romantic and feminine combination of plush Rex Rabbit and a Fox trim hood make this vest the perfect piece for an elegantly warm winter. Cut in a slightly longer silhouette, this piece is the perfect mix of contemporary and cool.

Barbour has the vest and coat combo down pat. The Betty is great on its own, but designed to zip into your barbour jacket for a warmer approach.

This cozy reversible shearling vest is the perfect versatile and stylish piece for Fall. From apple picking to days in The Big Apple, this vest is the perfect accessory.

Yeohlee’s cropped camo vest  is straight from the runway. Enjoy a high fashion look with this vest. We love it worn with all black.

Slipped under a jacket or over cashmere, Glamourpuss’ Signature Knit Vest will be your everyday outfit staple this Fall. Wear after your workout or a dinner out, you will be cozy and chic whatever the day brings.

 

 

 

 

Animal Instincts

From artwork to cocktail napkins, animal inspired items are popping up all over the home. Enjoy some of these animals, ranging from the cheeky to the exquisite!

Sharon Blond’s Safari Cocktail Napkins, Hand Towels and Tea Towels are a great way to infuse some fun animals into your home without being too over the top. We think one of each animal makes an adorable gift.

Nick Harvill’s collection of Baby Animal Engravings would look absolutely adorable in a neutral nursery. Buy one, or the whole collection for a bigger impact.

Lexie Armstrong’s watercolors have been a hit on Taigan, but it is her “Animal Stacks” that are flying off the shelves. We love the relationship that Lexie is able to create between the different animals in such a limited space.

The muted Giraffe print by Elizabeth Lucas boasts impressive heights, standing tall at 54″. We love the aged palette.

This safari themed cachepot is perfect for an orchid. We thing the monkeys are simply too cute!

And don’t forget the kiddos! Aden and Anais’ lightweight blankets are great for swaddling and snuggling.

When it comes to cocktails, we tend to call on our old favorite, Sallie’s Greatest Jams, for some tips and tricks. Of course we’re thrilled that she has recently released a line of simple syrups to make creative cocktails even easier! We’re currently in love with the Strawberry + Basil, and of course the super tasty Strawberry + Basil Margarita that can be made with it!

TIME TO GLAM UP YOUR FALL ACCESSORIES

Here are a few items that we are lusting over. View all here.

We’re thrilled to introduce Lexie Armstrong Watercolors on Taigan! 

Lexie Armstrong is a painter who lives in Franklin, TN.  Having traveled and studied abroad extensively, she has settled with her family on a horse farm where she paints and raises her three boys, chickens and horses and works in her organic garden.

Why we chose Lexie Armstrong Watercolors:

Lexie’s eye for beauty and detail paired with her fluid style made her the perfect fit on Taigan. In addition to observing and recording the local flora and fauna around the farm and in her garden in Tennessee, this series reflects farm life interacting with “wildlife” in a whimsical way.
