Last weekend one of my friends was wearing this amazing poncho (and basically the entire first outfit I pulled together below) and I was OBSESSED with it. I tackled her to look and see who made it and found it was by Ulla Johnson, whose designs I’ve seen a couple times in passing at Barney’s. But when I went online to find said poncho, I fell madly in love with almost every single thing she is making for spring! It’s glamorous bohemian in the best way possible (and so. many. tassels. y’all.) Unfortunately, on me -who is taller and broader in the shoulders than my friend who wore it best- it gave me the silhouette of an overgrown, vaguely ethnic SpongeBob SquarePants. Sadness. But there are other items I will be snapping up for summer (a few really good ones on sale too!)
I am packing up this morning to jet over to Nantucket (a.k.a. my happy place) with a bunch of girlfriends for the Nantucket Wine Fest! I could not be more excited (and yet will probably ugly cry over missing my tiny Henry numerous times). But momma NEEDS this and I am so excited. I’m packing a mix of things, mostly blue, white and red, and a mix of preppy and…PREPPY, because it’s Nantucket y’all. But these items would work just about anywhere.
I am crushing hard on the bohemian yet ladylike style of jewelry designer Rebecca de Ravenel. She seems to be that kind of girl that just effortlessly is cool. From her earrings to her homes, she’s just unique and fabulous.
