Patagonia Men's Jacket

Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket $129

with a fleece, or really anything from Patagonia. It’s just one of those brands that has done a really job sticking to what they know – making great, durable, quality pieces that are pretty much classics at this point.

Keep warm..

Inverni Cashmere Bear Hat

Inverni Cashmere Bear Hat $130

and carry on. I am in no way advocating anyone over the age of 12 get into the “animal hat” trend that I’m seeing more and more of when I’m walking around the city, but this Cashmere Bear Hat by Inverni is a very sweet take on the trend and an adorable way for little one’s to stay warm.

Eli Zabar’s Health Loaf

Meet the..

The New Breakfast Sandwich

The New Breakfast Sandwich

new English Mufffin: the Health Loaf from Eli Zabar. This breakfast sandwich on jessicalettucetomato. is a twist on a classic and it looks SO delicious!  Lightly toasted bread replaces the traditional kaiser roll or english muffin and is combined with pesto, cheddar cheese, fried egg, bacon, heirloom tomato, butter lettuce.  Love the pesto addition – can’t wait to try it!

For a loaf of bread, the Health Loaf is fairly hard to find, but totally worth the hunt.  I love the fact that it’s made from simple ingredients I can actually pronounce like flax, sunflower, sesame seeds and whole grains.

Scout & Catalogue Nomad Scarf

Scout & Catalogue Nomad Scarf $98

I collect scarves, not intentionally, just seem to have a bunch for all different seasons. I’m lusting after this Nomad Scarf from Scout & Catalogue. It’s tie-dyed with all natural dyes on a beautiful cotton crinkle gauze and is just gorgeous. Came across their etsy shop, they’ve got tons of great pieces (scarves, bags, pouches) that are all influenced by the bohemian beach culture of Mexico!

I was introduced to them on a recent visit to Pearl River, and couldn’t resist.  Since stumbling upon them, I’ve seem them at Kinokuniya Bookstore and a couple other places around the city.. needless to say, as I saw more dolls, my curiosity and intrigue has grown!  So after some research, I came across their site,

What can I say, I’m not a cook. However I love the idea of going into this adorable heirloom recipe box, pulling out a little index card and whipping up something fabulous and tasty. I don’t think that will ever be the case, but maybe its the thought that counts?
