weekly wrap up + the new domestic

It’s been so nice to be home this week, but I’m excited to get back out on the road this weekend for the next leg of the book tour. (See you soon, Minneapolis, Chicago, Dallas and Austin!) One of the best things about traveling has been getting to meet so many talented artists and designers in person. One of my favorites from last week’s West Coast leg was Nerissa of The New Domestic. Nerissa came to the Vancouver signing, and I immediately fell in love with her geometric print bags. I love the color palette of the bag above — it’s perfect for fall without being too “changing leaves” themed. If you’re interested in a new tote for colder temps, click here to check out and shop ($36 each) Nerissa’s full collection online. (And if you want to hear more about the book adventures, I’ve started keeping a little tour diary!)

I’m off to get packed up, but I’ll see you on Monday! Have a great weekend, xo grace
