{inspiration: paris in black & white}

completely enchanted with these black and white photographs by elisabeth toll -- not only for the fond memories of sacré-cœur and rooftop views, but also for the languid and gauzy nostalgia pervading every parisian moment . . .

{one late october afternoon}

. . . and after all the shades of mustard, wheat, and honey from recent photographs of our weekends away, was reminded again how warm yellow can be this time of year, especially when intermingled with deep wood tones and gold . . .

{scrapbook: a weekend in the country}

{a few photographs of our weekends away}

. . . while evenings in the city may be spent in heels and cocktail dresses, weekends away in the country are laid-back in a quilted Barbour and a pair of wellies, and after the apple orchards and pumpkin patches, the golden fields of wheat and rustling yellow leaves, a perfect afternoon for an autumn picnic for two . . .

{p.s.} and to p, thank you for making every moment feel like a dream, and for taking the most beautiful photographs

{all images by p + this is glamorous}
