A couple of pieces that have totally captured my attention…

the fashion magpie latest finds

1 // I cannot stop thinking about two pieces from Loretta Caponi’s latest collection: this dramatic stripe skirt and this gorgeous button-front blouse. Worn together or separately, they are high tailoring at its best. I love this brand’s old-world sensibility.

2 // Hunter Blake nailed it with these beautiful flower earrings. I love the unexpected color and pairing of enamel with stone. Would look fresh with a white dress.

3 // This embroidered Rafe clutch is beyond beautiful. In love.

4 // Violette Boum Boum Milk. “We’ve formulated the efficacy and elegance of French pharmacy skin care into a single spray that acts as your toner, serum, and moisturizer all in one. The soft milky formula offers instant hydration and soothing (and under makeup, c’est parfait!), but our clinical studies show long term results in tone, texture, and firmness, too.” Sold!

5 // GLDN X Layered and Long personalized ring. I have one of these exact rings with mini’s initials on the top part and her birthdate in roman numerals on the bottom and think I have finally convinced myself I need to buy another for micro!

6 // Lack of Color woven bucket hat. My friends have never let me live down my obsession with bucket hats in the early oughts, and, well? They’re back in baby! I am intrigued by these woven styles.

7 // Frank and Eileen beach sweater. This is the kind of thing you buy and then have no idea how you lived without it. It will be a desk sweater, a travel sweater, a chilly-evening-night sweater, a throw-on-when-cold-around-the-house sweater. Love it in the bright white with the perfect length, too!

8 // Marysia one-piece — ON SALE FOR $64?!?!?!? In such a great, bold color!

9 // My new Agua Bendita dress. I love the patterns and feminine shapes that have become synonymous with this brand. Remember you can get 20% off anything (I believe?) with code YOUROCK, including sale pieces like this fabulous Rhode top, Dudley Stephens’ fleeces, and Agolde’s perennially popular Riley jeans.

10 // Gabriella Hearst fisherman-style sandals. I can’t stop thinking about this style of shoe. I’m seeing it everywhere now and I want to dip my toe in the trend, but, of course, am drawn to the highest end pair. Ahh! Freda Salvador has a pair in a pretty lilac suede that caught my eye, too, and you can get the look for less with J. Crew.

11 // Tarragonia desk mat. I love this bold desk mat! Perfect eye candy for beneath a keyboard.

12 // Capulette furlanes. I just LOVE the shape of this shoe so much. As you know, I own several pairs by Vibi Venezia, but this ikat is to die for!

13 // Embroidered cotton cap. Yes to being a part of the “make things happen club.” I have long lived with — as my husband put it — “a bias for action.” I want things done yesterday!

14 // Gap linen-blend shorts. I can’t get over the reasonable price tag and high-end look. I would probably pair with a black tank for a polished look but I also kind of dig the all-linen matchy look, pairing with a button-down like this in white as well.

15 // Meadows botanical embroidered sweater. Love everything about this sweater.

16 // Agolde Parker shorts. Can’t wait for mine to arrive.

17 // Syrenia Sorrento t-straps. These are handmade in Italy and cost around $100! Beautiful and will go with everything in your closet.

18 // Stitch Golf bag. My sister and I plan to pick up where we left off in our childhood by getting back out on the course (or at least the driving range) this summer, and I inherited a basically unusable golf bag from my grandmother. It has no stand and is top-heavy, so the clubs nearly always tip forward while you’re carrying over your shoulder — ha! I think I will need to invest in some new gear at some point. This is an attractive style that caught my eye!

19 // Prince x Sporty and Rich sweatshirt. Are you tired of me talking about this collab? I just love the throwback feel and athletic green color.

20 // AmLactin foot cream. I’m happy to report I’ve finally found a replacement for the La Roche Posay foot cream we all loved so much, and it’s less expensive. Grace was not lying when she raved about this and specifically extolled the virtues of its skincare-grade ingredients (i.e., lactic acid). This is THE BEST FOOT CREAM I’VE EVER TRIED. Period.

P.S. My most recent installment of honest beauty reviews.

P.P.S. My favorite baking gear.

P.P.P.S. Is love a hunch?

  1. Yes to so much of this list — fisherman sandals (I have an old pair from Jil Sander that I’ll be trotting out soon), that Agua Bendita dress (SO pretty), the sporty vibes of the hat + Prince x S&R sweatshirt, and basically everything else. I’m intrigued by the foot cream but the link seems to take me to the desk mat … just thought I would let you know!
