Fashion Friday: Recent Faves & Sale Picks

A few recent purchases I love and thought I’d share with you, since a bunch of you mentioned liking these kinds of posts! (CLICK IMAGES FOR LINKS!)

The smell and texture of this body polish is amazing and Old Navy is killing it by offering awesome basics (the tee and workout top) in tall sizes. I love both styles!

Also, I bought five of this lace bra from the Gap (it’s on sale) and am obsessed- supportive, but light as air!

This eyeshadow palette proves makeup people finally get it– we need a BIG light neutral color– not all the same size as the others – don’t you hate it when you have a great palette but run out of one color way faster than the others?

Bobbi Brown has 25% off everything right now, and I love this tinted lipbalm in Popsicle. Just a hint of healthy color.

I’ve been wearing these brushed gold hoops a lot lately- just enough of a statement but also a basic.

The new/old Jcrew cotton rollneck is the perfect weekend sweater for spring!

I got a sample of this Aerin perfume and adore the smell. May have to buy the big one!

Leopard hide sandals– on order! On sale for $70.

Also, the annual Shopbop sale is going on now until tomorrow– 20-25% off your whole order! I love to use these kinds of sales to stock up on pricier basics I know won’t go out of style.  From a new pair of my FAVE leather pants to this amazingly adorable one piece suit for summer (and of course, all my favorite jeans!)

My Summer Pillow Collection

I know- SUMMER. Not even in the REALM of thought in half the country right now (still wearing my Moncler puffy coat every damn day).  But as with clothing, home follows a nutty schedule totally out of line with where we are in real life.

I wanted to share these while available online, even though some of the listings are glitchy.  So if a pillow you like isn’t working on the site- check back tomorrow. (Annoying, I know– TRUST me).  This collection is all about color, texture and FUN and at such affordable prices, easy to toss in a few to a room to help you get jazzed about warmer weather! Also, some of the brighter pillows are perfect for kids and teen rooms!

A High/Low Guest Room Makeover

I saw some bedding I loved on Williams Sonoma Home and it inspired me to create a high/low guest room look illustrating how it’s possible to get the same style for less than half the cost. (Side note: These side tables in the low version are from Target’s new collection and come in white too- love the faux bamboo leg!)


Fashion Friday: Spring Shoes

Yesterday in the office I asked the girls what I should blog about today. At first we joked about “how to dress for spring when spring is 30 degrees and snowing” and then, literally as we ate a huge plate of muffin tops, decided maybe “how to dress to conceal you winter hibernation weight”.   But in all seriousness, it’s not fun to buy spring clothes right now.  Trying on pastel colors and short dresses with pasty, dry skin and an extra few pounds is anything but uplifting. But you know what is always fun to buy? SHOES!!!

So many fun finds– jeweled, patterned, bright colors and staple neutrals.  From all sorts of places from H&M to Bergdorfs (and even Talbots!) I love that people are having more fun with shoes these days (some too much fun, there is a BEVY of hideous platform/ 90’s throwback footwear out there right now.)

So here is a round up of some of my favorite spring shoes– both that you can wear now while a bit chilly and later when it’s hot.  Click the images for links, except for the pink ikat loafers which you can find HERE!

 

A Royal Wedding Party!

As I’ve mentioned before, when I guessed what Meghan Markle’s dress would look like,  I am pretty jazzed about this royal wedding situation.  A few details have been released, which is making me even MORE excited, because it seems the royal couple are after a slightly more relaxed, English garden kind of look for their big day versus the big to-do that was the Kate and William celebration.

The florist for the wedding will be Philippa Craddock, whose work is amazing.  I love the looser, organic feel of many of her arrangements.
