Is it just me, or does fall feel more welcome than ever this year? It's been an extremely hot here in Portland, OR (with literally NO rain) and we're welcoming this glorious season with open arms.
For this month's Practical Distraction, we wanted to share a few tidbits to celebrate the change of seasons: fasll fashion essentials, books to cozy up with, and a collection of recipes that usher in the later summer harvest.
What We're Wearing
Without a doubt, fall is the best season for fashion. One day you're in a flowy, lightweight summer dress and the next you're topping off your look with a leather blazer.

The Attic Child

What We're Cooking
When it comes to food, we love September because it's truly the best of both worlds. You can enjoy the last of summer tomatoes and peppers, but also start to cook warm soups and braised dishes. Food & Wine has a stunning lineup of recipes to cook in September, and we highly recommend you check it out. Discover the curated list of recipes here:
