New season, new everything. These four bloggers have the fall refresh covered.

1. LE CATCH
First up, a new fall wardrobe – inspired by this former Condé Nast fashion editor’s musings.  

2. the glossarie.
Next, let’s talk makeup. We’re loving Lara’s picks for the best of beauty. She tests them so you don’t have to.

3. Emily Bites
While we’re at it, our go-to recipes could use some refreshing. Cue this blog of lightened-up (but still obsession-worthy) comfort foods.

4. Sugar & Cloth
Last but not least, we’re revamping things around the house – one adorable, glittery decoupage DIY at a time.

It’s a Bloggers World (We Just Live in It)

Our top 4 picks of the week

Bloggers

This weekend, we’re unofficially sending off summer. Which would be thoroughly sad (no one likes beach weekends more than the lot of us) except for that giddifying word – fall.

Here, four bloggers give us a peek at all the season has in store.

1. Sacramento Street
We reserve exclamation points for only the most exciting things on earth. Like boots! (!!!)

2. Dallas Shaw
Hello, Helmut Lang leather jacket. Sometimes the line between want and need is so unfairly blurred.

3. delight by design
If we ever wanted to match our dinner to our fall wardrobe (you know, just because), Blair’s richly hued beet and avocado salad would be a good place to start.

4. Could I Have That?
Repeat after us: more leopard, please. #wedie

Peas and Thank You
These healthy doughnuts (not an oxymoron, apparently) would make our afternoon slump way less slumpy.

Skinnytaste
Speaking of healthy, we wouldn’t mind if nutrition-minded recipe guru, Gina, became our new best friend. Gina, thoughts?

30-Minute Martha
Until then, these seriously good half-hour recipes will more than suffice.

Young House Love
If only 30 minutes could make our house look this good, too…

It’s a Blogger’s World (We Just Live in It)

Rue associates' top picks from the blogosphere

Bloggers

It’s no secret: we’re kind of into blogs. Here, four Rue associates share their favorites.

Dappered
“My morning go-to. The guy (Joe) who writes it gives great advice on dressing well without spending a ton of money. It’s nice to have someone else do all legwork around discovering new brands, sites, and sales.”
– Scott S., Director, New Ventures 

Desire To Inspire
“This blog is run by two design-obsessed friends – one from Australia and one from Canada – who have never actually met. It’s the ultimate voyeur’s playground, plastered with big, beautiful interior and exterior photos of stunning homes all around the world.”
– Lindsay L., Editor 

Cheetah is the New Black, Camille Styles, & oh joy!
“It’s a three-way tie. I love CNB’s style. Camille Styles’s recipes and home styling are great. And oh joy!’s daughter is too cute for words and a super-stylish little nugget.”
– Jessica R., Senior Digital Designer

seersucker + saddles
“This girl boldly mixes prints like nobody’s business. I regularly trawl her blog for style inspiration that’s just the right amount of preppy, edgy, and classic.”
– Chrissy M., Copywriter

On our radar this week? Four bloggers who take on the world – one fashion-savvy step at a time.

tuula
Can her job get any cooler? From a photo shoot in Barcelona (rocking leather shorts, we might add) to sightseeing in Berlin, Jessica globetrots radiating we-need-that-now style. And did we mention she’s a Heidi Klum look-alike?

betty
Wearing overalls and carrying a pink box of Voodoo Doughnuts, this blogger makes the seemingly impossible look chic. Plus, we’re about to book at ticket to Portland, Oregon – that food looks amazing.

fashiontoast
Comfy-cool. A look we’ve tried to master with our old sweatpants. But this blogger does it effortlessly, and all while she’s in Rabat, Morocco (and wearing a fedora).

An American Girl in Transit
We don’t know what to focus on – the glorious views of the Taj Mahal or this blogger’s amazing blue maxi skirt. Either way, we’re officially envious with a serious case of wanderlust.

Finding a place for all of our shoes? So hard.

Below, heaps of shoe-rganization inspiration from this week’s blogger roundup.

lovely #lohas
Apparently magazine files are useful for more than our aggressive Us Weekly collection.

Stay
Truth: Colorblocked wedges are the new bookends.

Live Simply by Annie
An ottoman that functions solely as an ottoman? Never.

Song of Style
If all else fails, pile them into the bathtub.

From Cronuts™ to well, Cronuts, behold: the blogosphere’s take on our latest obsession.

Kathy YL Chan
It all started at New York’s Dominique Ansel Bakery. Here’s Kathy’s first look at the doughnut and croissant hybrid.

eatocracy
The scoop on the controversy behind the treat’s trademarked name. We now plan to call it a Nutcro. Docross. Or something.

French Foodie in Dublin
Proof the Cronut is ridiculously good? It’s gone international.

The Kate Tin
Now, go forth and make magic at home. Here’s a recipe.

1. A Subtle Revelry
We are making this Rice Krispies cake. Today. Thanks, Victoria. #nostalgia

2. Color Me Carla
“A treasury of all things badass.” Like glittery faux-taxidermy animal heads.

3. Calling It Home
Summer weekend project: painting the stairs. (Occasionally we have to take a break from the beach, right?)

4. Top With Cinnamon
How to make Thin Mints at home in 15 minutes. Dying. Life will never be the same.

When it comes to seasons, we don’t play favorites. Well, okay – maybe we do (cough cough, summer). Nothing beats slipping into a bright suit, packing up a tote, and heading to the beach.

These bloggers show us just how a day in the sun is done.

1. Camille Styles
These totes fit every beach personality. Think nautical stripes and canvas prints.

2. The Effortless Chic
How to pull off wavy beach hair – without actually having to go in the water.

3. Effortless Style
Here’s Camila’s pick for a quick beach read. (Did we mention it’s about a home design blogger like herself?)

4. Sugar and Cloth
As for everything else? Ashley names every last sun and swim essential. Get packing.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: Four score and seven years ago, the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria sailed the ocean blue in order to form a more perfect union.

Oh wait. That’s wrong. Get your facts straight on the most patriotic day of the year with help from this slew of blogs, all packed to the brim with (accurate) American history.

1. Boston 1775
Did you know Ben Franklin had his own phonetic alphabet? He found c, j, q, w, x, and y to be “confusing.” (Ben, there is nothing confusing about the word clothing.)

2. UNHISTORICAL
Disregard the name. It is historical. Read up and regurgitate during, uh, dinner dates.

3. Threaded
Fast fact: Mrs. Lincoln’s much-coveted White House dressmaker was a former slave. Read more on this Smithsonian blog.

4. I’m Remembering!
Utterly nostalgic things from the 80s and 90s (like OshKosh B’gosh) count as American “history”… right?
