Happy Flower Friday. Here’s another arrangement of some of my favorite flowers with a little DIY video. I love using fresh  mint as the greenery. It gives the arrangement a pop of color and makes the house smell heavenly fresh.

Something simple I’ve been wearing this week is this delicate silky slip dress.  A light jacket and layered gold accessories take the slip into the long summer nights. One of our favorite summer evening activities is the Yamashiro Night Market. It’s a low key farmers market with some great local food, live music, and breathtaking views of the city. With summer wrapping up I’m looking forward to fall, but I’ll miss all of the warm weather happenings that spring up around the city.

I hope everyone is enjoying the last bits of summer. While I’m loving the slow pace of August, I’m also getting ready to jet to Australia before the month of September. As always I’m a little nervous about flying. I’m not a good sleeper on planes so I’m not sure what I’m going to do to occupy my time. Regardless of the flight I’m really excited to explore Melbourne and the surrounding regions of Victoria.

What are your tricks for getting through long flights? Any suggestions for shows, books, or podcasts I should queue up for my trip?

If I could eat lox for every meal, I would. I use it dozens of different ways, but I think it truly shines in brunch recipes. Today I ‘m sharing my favorite Sunday indulgence, an open-faced lox sandwich with crème fraîche topped with a 6 minute egg.

Ingredients

Good bread

Lox

Eggs

Crème fraîche

Chives

Extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Start by preheating the oven to 375F and boiling water in a pot large enough to hold all of the eggs will be using. Slice bread into half inch wide slices. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil on both sides and toast in the oven until lightly golden brown and slightly crispy. You want the toast to be soft on the inside and just lightly crispy on the outside. Finely chop a handful of fresh chives, set a small bit aside for garnish.  Mix a half cup of crème fraîche with the finely chopped chives, add salt and pepper to taste.  Once your water boils, gently add the eggs and boil for exactly 6 minutes. Remove the eggs from heat and chill in cold water until cool enough to peel.  Once the bread and eggs have cooled you can start to assemble the sandwich. Spread a layer of the crème fraîche sauce onto the bread, layer with lox, top with a 6 minute egg, season with a little bit of salt and pepper and garnish with a sprinkle of chives. Voilà! Serve and enjoy.

I’ve always had a soft spot for matching co-ords. I love the idea that I can wear them together or break them up to create multiple looks. This See by Chloe set is reminiscent of a ruffled dress I bought last year and wore on multiple occasions during the holidays. Since I still love that dress, reaching for it whenever I can’t find anything else to wear, I figured I’d love having something similar in separates. I wasn’t wrong. This skirt and blouse set is even lovelier than the dress that inspired the purchase. I can see myself pairing the skirt with a chambray top and sandals for a casual brunch date, or pairing the top with a skinny black trouser and heels for a date night out with Sam. The possibilities are plentiful and endless. I’m excited to continue styling the pieces while at the same time having an easy, chic go-to look for when I’m in a rush or feeling less than inspired.

I picked up both of these pieces from Farfetch. If you’re unfamiliar, Farfetch is a shopping destination that allows you to shop from over 700 boutiques all around the world. It’s perfect for when you’re searching for a specific item and you need it fast. My items came all the way from Italy and Poland, but arrived within days. They also offer free returns and pick ups, as well as same day delivery in certain cities. I shop almost exclusively at online stores and the ease that comes with buying from Farfetch is refreshing when you need the perfect item in a pinch. It gives you the opportunity to shop from boutiques you don’t have access to. and you know that you can return without going to the post office if it doesn’t work out.
