Breakfast With Iris


Anyone else completely obsessed with Iris Apfel?  Like, level 10 obsessed??  I love everything about her.  I love her style, her attitude toward life, her marriage, her confidence and her thoughts on just about any subject.  She is a true lady and one who does not care one single bit what others think of her, and its both refreshing and inspiring.  As a woman who wasn't very sure of herself as a teen and young woman I find Iris' view on life and herself to be life changing.  We should all have the confidence she has and we should lift each other up with that same amount of confidence.  It is absolutely energizing.



I had the honor to have breakfast with Iris this week, well ... her book anyway, and it was a fabulous way to start my day.  I made my go to breakfast of oatmeal with dried fruit +  nuts along with a cup of coffee and just sat for quite a while truly reading this book.  I have flipped through the entire book, I love the photos and quotes the most, but I am still reading so much of it.  '




It is so very good.  The photos are fabulous, the words are wonderful and the quotes are life changing. I was so excited when my friends at Grandin Road sent me a signed copy.  I think I may have squealed when I opened it and then I immediately sat down on the front steps and starting flipping through it, it is that good!

Grandin Road has partnered with this amazing icon to create The Iris Apfel Collection which you will adore as much as I do.  Each piece is so darling, so fun and so Iris. First of all, this elephant console table is everything ... and so is this monkey, and this tiered server is so cute!  This teapot, the linens, the dishes ... you will love it all! I made a major wish list to spruce up our outdoor entertaining game and I can't wait to share the reveal with you in a few weeks.  I am so excited about moving more of our entertaining outside!


For the moment I will finish my coffee and read more of this fabulous book.  Grandin Road has so generously offered to give away a signed copy of Iris' book ... so stay tuned for that announcement tomorrow morning on Instagram!

Have the best Wednesday ... and let's all be fearless!! 👊
