Yolke Pajamas

I stumbled across luxury loungewear company Yolke this weekend and instantly fell in love with their chic silk pajamas. Founded by friends (and Temperly London veterans) Ella Ringner and Anna Williamson, the English lifestyle brand has a distinctly colorful, tomboy-ish charm. Their Varsity monogram set is rather fantastic and I can’t help but covet one of their pretty printed eye masks. Perhaps I’ll splurge on a pair of pajamas while I’m across the pond…

London’s Ham Yard Hotel

We leave for London and Paris next week and I’m in crazy-Katie planning mode (itineraries are my passion). While in London, we’ll be dividing our time between two gorgeous Firmdale Hotels decorated by Kit Kemp. The first is their newest property, the Ham Yard Hotel. I’ve been dreaming about visiting their handsome library (above) ever since I spotted it on instagram last year. I’ll be sure to snap lots of photos while I’m there (I finally got a good camera!), but here’s a sneak preview. If you have any new London favorites (boutiques, museums, restaurants) I’d love to hear!

Boden Fall 2015 Collection

boden-fall-2015-21

The September issues are flooding our mailboxes which can only mean one thing–it’s time to think about fall fashion. Boden’s autumn 2015 collection is now available online and there are multiple ensembles tempting me. The timeless designs (this Sienna coat!) would last season after season and keep me toasty when layered here in Chicago. Decisions, decisions…

Soho Farmhouse, Oxfordshire

I’ve been eagerly awaiting photography of Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, England and the Wall Street Journal magazine finally spilled the beans. The rural retreat is the usual Soho House luxury with a distinct country twist. In addition to 40 guest cottages, the sprawling 100-acre estate includes a variety of outdoorsy activities such as boating, horseback riding, and in wintertime, ice skating. I’m excited to see Oxfordshire for myself when we make a day-trip to the University of Oxford next month (have you been? Let me know of any tips!). Perhaps this calls for a little detour en route!
