Lately, I have been wearing a stripe-centric uniform: white jeans (<<these are phenomenally flattering, but I also have my eyes on this pair) or ecru wide-leg trousers similar to these, Uniqlo tees, a striped sweater or cardigan (a few by La Ligne, and I’ve also been wearing two that are sold out everywhere — a Toteme cardigan similar to this, and a J. Crew funnel neck sweatshirt similar to this), my Loeffler Randall flats, and a woven bag (usually this Pam Munson, because it’s surprisingly roomy and can be worn over my shoulder, aka requirements for mom life).
I just realized this stripe-centricity has carried over elsewhere: I keep most of my shopping finds in a private Pinterest board that I then use to pull together themes, color palettes, etc that inspire some of the blog posts I share here, and nearly everything I’ve pinned this week has been striped! Below, the striped spring and summer finds that have caught my eye:
01. LIVELY SWIM SUIT // 02. KITRI DRESS // 03. KULE TEE // 04. VIBI VENEZIA FLATS // 05. PRADA MULES // 06. H&M TOTE // 07. CASTANER HEELS // 08. SKIRT // 09. EMPORIO SIRENEUSE DRESS // 10. REBECCA VALLANCE DRESS // 11. LA DOUBLE J DRESS // 12. SANDRO DRESS // 13. DEMELLIER TOTE // 14. ALEXANDRE BIRMAN LOAFERS // 15. SKIRT // 16. GUCCI SLIDES // 17. J. CREW DRESS // 18. MARTA SCARAMPI BELT // 19. J. CREW TOTE // 20. BLOUSE // 21. LOEFFLER RANDALL MARY JANE // 22. TROUSERS
And I have an entire separate category for beautiful blue and white striped dresses to consider. These might be a good starting point for family photos this summer. I always think blue and white is timeless and looks great on everyone.
P.S. A fun cocktail to try this weekend. If you don’t have all the ingredients immediately available, you can also try a Tom Collins — much easier to come by!
P.P.S. Join me at the trees. I have been thinking a lot about Mary Oliver lately because I’m listening to a fascinating audiobook on Mary Oliver narrated by Sophia Bush that is part biography, part poetry recitation, and part oral history. Thanks to the nearly dozen Magpie readers who sent me the link to this book! You know me well.
P.P.P.S. Here’s your permission slip for the weekend.

Quick questions- I’ve been eyeing the Pamela Munson Teddy bag. Is it holding up well? Does it have any sort of structural piece along the bottom to maintain its shape? I don’t want to end up with a sack once I put heavier items into it. Thank you for your feedback!
I LOVE this bag so much. Have worn it at least a few times a week I’d guess since I received it? It has held up really well, and yes — it does have a structural piece (long strip of firm croc leather) along the length of the bottom so it can sit on its own upright.
