June Inspirations: Lots of Blue + White.

By: Jen Shoop

Currently inspired by…

+More Amy Berry interior design magic (seen above). I love the Mark Sikes rug — yet another insanely gorgeous style from his collection, and relatively reasonably priced for the quality and high-end style. More of my favorite rugs here.

+An old photo of Olivia Palermo wearing now-sold-out Le Sireneuse Positano but I love this similar current season top and skirt from the same label — and on sale! — and this variation. Alternately, this less expensive dress does all the work for you! Or, channel the entire look for less with this skirt and this corresponding top at a bargain price.

+These Delft porcelain-inspired sugar cookies are beyond. Can you imagine a sweet bridal tea with a blue and white theme like this?!

+Punchy, eye-catching embroidery art from Etsy shop Yes Stitch Yes.

+This sky blue stunner from Kalita is calling my name — and on sale. Also love this white v-back dress by the same brand AND the dress I featured at the top of this post.

+Do you follow my dear friend Alison Kenworthy? She has been giving us sneak peeks into the homes of the most stylish people via Instagram Live over the past few months — high entertainment during quarantine. You may remember that she is an old friend of mine from high school and former GMA producer. Love this candid photo of her at the beach wearing a now-sold-out Zara dress. You can get a similar breezy look with an SZ Blockprint caftan — look for less here, this similar-style Zara dress, this pretty blockprint stunner, or this breezy Thierry Coulson.

+Alert! La Coqueta sale is here! I think one of my very first purchases for mini (before she was born) was a special dress from La Coqueta. They make the most exquisite children’s clothing. I have my eye on this pretty blue linen striped number (seen above) and this berry print beauty. Both of my children wore their knit sets as itty bitties — this would be such a sweet addition to your little one’s wardrobe, or a great gift for a newborn baby (unisex!)

+I am apparently all about the dramatic, billowing maxi these days, but I could not stop staring at this Jonathan Simkhai gown (on sale here and here). Never enough LWDs! Or, in this case, BIG white dresses.

+This hydrangea-filled foyer in Tallwood Country House is absolutely breathtaking. The entire house is a grandmillennial dream that may or may not have led me to add scented chintz drawer liners to my Amazon cart–and those hydrangeas! Side note: I love how they’ve used a vintage wooden pizza paddle for wall decor. Reminds me that we have two seasoned paella dishes that I’ve long thought would look chic hanging on the wall of a pantry. Hm.

+Dying over the side-by-side photos of this absolutely breath-taking nightgown/day dress from Campo Collective. Swoon! The black bow in the back is everything, but if you can manage without, I also love these billowy white nightgown-dresses: this $129 And Other Stories find, this Eileen West, this maternity/nursing-friendly gown, this breezy linen find, and this $18 steal. And if its the bow you’re after, try this dress! Obsessed!

+Speaking of white dresses — this standout from Mie. I mentioned this brand the other day, but I am in love with every single dress they have!

+These hats from high-end Barcelona milliner Eliurpi are stunning. Get the look for less with this.

A propos of nothing at all, a few other things on my radar:

+I am now learning (as I finally get around to ordering backyard/summer gear for my children) that inflatable pools are a little tough to come by! All of the fun prints from Minnidip appear sold out everywhere, but you can still find them on eBay for an upcharge and Target has one of their mini pools on sale here (note the dimensions!). On a related note, this strawberry innertube is adorable and these inflatable couch things are all the rage in Central Park — we’re ordering one for our daily sojourns!

+These toile mules are so fun — and very on sale. Perfect way to add interest to jeans and a tee or a little white dress.

+Cute monogrammable rash guard for a little boy.

+SO many chic finds at Tory Burch right now — love this smocked maxi.

+More recent inspirations/moodboards here and here.

+Father’s Day is just around the corner!

    1. OMG – love!!! They also have a little strawberry blockprint caftan beauty I need! Thank you!

  1. Blue & white forever! I’m still in love with that toile print Staud did — I want to find the simple strappy sheath they did in that print! I also love SZ Blockprints in general and both of the Kalita dresses you linked.

    And wow, Mie — their designs are SO gorgeous. Thank you for the introduction!


    1. Yes! That Staud toile is SO good; wore it for Mr. Magpie’s birthday and eager to pull it out again. Funny you mention this as another reader JUST commented that she bought that exact toile Staud dress earlier this year and that it’s one of her all-time favorites 🙂
