Fashion Friday: British Style with Joules

Joules is a British brand that has been making its way into my closet (and Henry’s) over the past year. I first heard about them when I saw Erika Powell wearing one of their adorable Cowdray button collar sweatshirts on her blog a long time ago. Then my mom became a huge fan of those same sweatshirts (currently limited in inventory online- but they always seem to bring back new colors and styles of it) and then I got one. And now I’ve expanded past just that beloved item into other pieces from them. As for Henry, well there is just so much cuteness in the baby section (and all of it really well made) that it’s hard to not order everything. And today I have a great excuse to do just that as Joules is offering my readers 20% off all full-priced items with the code ELEMENTS(ends Oct 31st@)!!!  Here are some of my favorite items:

I have this poncho and love it- perfect for fall, super warm and not itchy- I actually wore it just like this with a striped tee underneath. This plaid tweed coat is another awesome fall piece that is great for layering- ladylike but with menswear influence.

The Georgia Credenza, with it’s incredible grain detail, would be perfect in a formal dining room or as a media console.

Fashion Friday: Welcome M. Gemi!

I’m happy to share a fabulous company with you guys today that is bringing a new angle to the shoe game (which we all like to play, right?) M.Gemi (who also happens to be based in my hometown of Boston) is named after one of the founding members, Maria Gangemi, a longtime devotee of Italian craftsmanship and artistry. Growing up in Sicily, Maria learned the luxury footwear trade from the best in the business. She recalls a time when she would wander Italy’s cobblestone streets and discover goods created with the most exacting attention to design and quality. Each week, boutiques would display new, limited-edition shoes handmade by neighboring shoemakers. They were always fresh, always rare, and always reasonably priced.
