Currently, Inspired By…

By: Jen Shoop

I swooned at the picture above, of the founder of the fashion brand Alexis and her two sweet girls. She’s wearing her own label’s top and skirt (both on sale!) and you know how I feel about WHITE. (Separately, I’ve long eyed this stunner from her collection, also currently on sale with an extra 25% off!). But mainly: I wouldn’t mind sitting poolside under an umbrella on her patio. How incredible are these?! Dead. If only…

+Drooling over new-to-me clean Parisian children’s skincare line Minois. Eyeing this body oil and bubble bath.

+I love these cheerful pink striped swimsuits from Janie + Jack’s Think Pink collection! Would be so sweet for a dad and baby boy matching moment…or maybe I need to match my boy! Speaking of swimwear — Solid & Striped is running a sitewide 25% off promotion, INCLUDING SALE, which means that stunners like this seersucker beauty costs like $63. I own several of their suits and LOVE them.

+Must own this gorgeous dress seen above on Tory Burch (15% off!)

+In love with this dreamy nursery in the home of Jenny Cipoletti. I always loved those old-fashioned style wicker bassinets (seen above), and the entire vibe is so perfectly grandmillennial-chic. One of these DeBuci baby rosebud blankets (seen above) would be a gorgeous finishing touch. And the hot air balloon mobile she has — too precious! I found a similar needlepointed one from the same shop where I found the one my children have had. (And — hot air balloons in a nursery remind me of this dreamy wallpaper from one of my favorite Etsy sources.)

+How chic is the handmade colored glassware from Estelle?! Perfect for a summer table. I’m drawn to the blue or green. How fun are these coupes?!

+I love this dreamy picture of Lizzi Longley with her son. She’s wearing a simple white swimsuit from Andie’s Swim which may have finally pushed me over the edge into buying this classic white piece (30% off) from covetable label Anemone.

+I’m all about the nightgown dress this season — how amazing is this $129 beauty? So easy to wear! I also already ordered this.

+The pieces from Spanish label Mi & Mis are absolutely stunning. Adore a big satin bow on a little girl’s romper or dress! Get the look for less with this or this.

P.S. Mr. Magpie, if you’re reading this: this is what I want for my birthday.

P.P.S. Epistolarity.

P.P.P.S. Shed a small tear remembering this sweet conversation with mini back when she attended school in person: “I laughed, mama.”

  1. Oooh that Anemone one-piece is so elegant! And it’s white! Which I love, much yo my own demise, with eventual discoloring from sunscreens and what not… I absolutely love one-pieces, and not just because I have a stubborn postpartum tummy (can I still say postpartum when my daughter’s two and a half?! I’ll say yes I can, ha!). I have to say, a major gripe I have with the newer swimsuits nowadays is either unpadded cups or cheeky-cut backsides, or both. Maybe it’s the Asian modesty in me — not to stereotype, but I remember growing up, “headlights” (if you know what I mean) were frowned upon. I couldn’t tell from MO’s site nor Anemone’s site if this one is padded… if you order, would you be so kind as to report back? 🙂 Thank you thank you in advance!

    1. Haha — headlights! Hate those too. Will do — may take the plunge this weekend!


  2. Co-signing Solid & Striped suits! I have the classic Anne Marie cut in two different colors/fabrics and I love them both. May want to scoop up another during the sale — thanks for the tip! xx
