As L.M. Montgomery wrote…

…of one of my favorite childhood heroines, Anne of Green Gables, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

Don’t you agree? This past week, especially with that debacle of a debate on Tuesday, I was in desperate need of an Autumn Hug. You know the kind. Wrapped up in shades of gold and burnt sienna, open country roads, orchards as far as the eye can see, a distinct chill in the air, as you pull your tweed coat a bit tighter around your neck. Allie and I escaped upstate for the day to go apple picking for exactly that and it was just the medicine I was craving! Crisp fall air works wonders for the soul, doesn’t it?

That said, this weekend I’ll be laying low before we head out to Vermont mid-next week, where I’m so excited for another dose of fall splendor! I’ve never stepped foot in Vermont before so I’m looking forward to the adventure of it all. If you guys have any recommendations, please send them my way!

As for this week’s roundup, let’s kick things off shall we…

ONE // The Atlantic’s Photos of the Week

I look forward to this roundup each week — such incredible storytelling packed into single images.

TWO // Chrissy Teigen has ignited an open dialogue about miscarriage

Like many of you, I was heartbroken to read about Chrissy Teigen’s devastating news this week and was incredibly moved to read some of the discussion that followed.

THREE // Understanding COVID a little better 

Loved this post from Grace, written by our friend Alex, who has just launched Fog City Girls 00 an organic, dry fogging service that disinfects surfaces and entire rooms in a matter of minutes.

FOUR // Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom comes to Netflix in December

Based on the life of trailblazing blues signer Ma Rainey adapted from the August Wilson’s play of the same name, this movie looks divine already. The cinematography, the costume design, all of it. It’s also Chadwick Boseman’s final role.

FIVE // Who gets to be an equestrian?

A very thought-provoking read on what Black people face in largely white, elite institutions like horseback riding.

SIX // Chelsea Clinton on why Amy Coney Barrett doesn’t deserve RBG’s seat

All I have to say is: ditto.

SEVEN // The most illuminating moment from the debate

A lot happened, a lot was said, a lot was shouted. And in the end, it really did feel like a “hot mess, inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck,” as Jake Trapper put it. Here’s one of the most illuminating moments from the debate, examined.

EIGHT // 3 things making me smile…

Monroe shared all of her fall boots picks and I have to say, my credit card is NOT safe! // I’m really loving the combo of cardigans and knit tanks these days, especially this one by La Ligne, here and here. // Congrats to my dear friend Meghan on her stationery collaboration — it’s beyond darling!

  1. As a woman who had to go through IVF to conceive and then had the heartbreaking experience of a late term loss at 23 weeks like Chrissy’s, I have a new respect for her. I’ve never felt one way or another about her, but when I read her Instagram post, I cried because I truly know what that pain feels like. It made her feel more “normal” to me, that it’s not just regular old people who experience things like that. It reinforced the idea that, at the end of the day, we’re all human and want the same things out of life. When I was going through IVF I told everyone about it and same thing when we lost our son. I needed people to know because it gave my husband and I much needed support from everyone in our lives. I will say, I was slightly disappointed in Vogue’s post about it, calling it a miscarriage, when it most definitely wasn’t – it’s perinatal loss. But I digress – the point is, I’m glad to have someone like Chrissy getting the message out their that it happens a lot more than we’d like to believe and woman need the support. After my experiences this year, I’ve actually become a mentor through Northwestern Hospital in Chicago for other women who experience the loss we did!

  2. I love these photos of you and am always honored to be included in your selects! Thank you for sharing the collaboration and hope you have a great weekend!
