PAM MUNSON X INSLEE PATCHWORK BAG. My dear friend Inslee designed the artwork for this gorgeous hobo-style tote bag by Pamela Munson, which launched earlier this week, sold out, and is now available for pre-order. The colors are vibrant and playful and will go with everything in your closet. Perfect with an all-white ensemble, or pattern-matched (as I prefer). Cannot wait to wear all spring and summer! I also cannot write more enthusiastically about Pam or Inslee — both true talents and free spirits in their own ways. I love everything that they put out into the world.
APIECE APART STRIPED DRESS. This dress is even better than I had anticipated. It arrived and I’m actually itching for mildly warmer weather to roll it out. It is so flattering on, with a self-cinch waist, and the perfect amount of volume at the sleeve. I love the wide shirting stripe and contrast stripe on the sleeve, too — just a fun, elevated option for everyday wear. (I included this in my everyday dress WYSF post last week along with a slew of other fabulous everyday styles.)
FARM RIO DAISY TOP. I wrote about this yesterday, but it brought an instant smile to my face. Such a joyful statement for these mid-winter months. I don’t care if it’s not “seasonally appropriate” — I wore this out in NYC with high-waisted denim and felt like a ray of sunshine. The peplum and trim add additional depth/interest/artistry to the top, too.
HBO THE LAST OF US. Have you been watching this show? It’s a post-apocalyptic zombie-style thriller based on a video game and the first episode had me absolutely on the edge of my seat, covering my eyes, screaming, squeezing Mr. Magpie’s hand! Wow! It’s hard to believe the production value — just ONE episode felt like one of the best adventure/thriller movies I’d seen in a long time.
ILIA MULTI STICK. A reader wrote about how much she loves this multi stick and I, too, am a sucker for these lip/cheek products that are easy to apply so promptly added to cart in the poppy color. I love a bright color. I can’t decide whether to buy this or to go with the Jones Road Miracle Balm, which seems somewhat similar. I’d had the latter on my mind all week long after spending an actual hour of my life watching the “get ready with me” beauty videos by Jeanne Does Makeup. Doesn’t she make you want to have fun with your makeup bag? Anyway, not sure which direction I’ll go in for a new lip/cheek color but it will be one of these two. Any tie-breaking intelligence anyone wants to share?
DOEN RENOIR TOP. This arrived in the mail and it is such a fun little statement. I love the way it looks layered with a few gold pendants (you can see my everyday jewelry picks here), tucked into high-waist denim, and paired with a lug-sole boot. I feel like the boot kind of balances out the feminity/innocence of the top.
JACADI BABY WEAR. I’d all but forgotten about Jacadi, but I popped into the Flatiron store while up in Manhattan this week to buy something for my cousin, who just had a baby. I actually gasped at this little bow dress (perfect for a Baptism or baby flower girl or Easter?) but ended up getting her one of these Liberty print knit sets, which felt more practical for a winter Brooklyn baby. How precious?
MAMEY DESIGN CARDS. Oh my goodness. I had been following Marion of Mamey Designs on Instagram for awhile and fell in love with the darling stationery styles she has for littles. She generously sent me stationery for both mini and micro and I literally squealed when I opened the package! The colors, the inventiveness and detail of the designs, the fonts! She is a true artist and these cards are just beyond special. I had to have this cute vintage defender style for my son (a lover of all things with heels) and this crayon style for my artistic mini, but there are lots of options, and she also does stationery for grown ups.
GALENTINE’S DAY. I had a little Galentine’s Day with mini earlier this week. After I put my son down to bed, I let her stay up late watching a movie with me in my bed. Of course, I rolled out the new Lake PJs for the occasion so we could twin, and then pulled out all the stops with movie theater snacks/popcorn/candy in these melamine heart bowls from Target. She was in heaven — as was I! It was such a special memory with my girlie. A fun idea for you and your own mini in the coming week (or even on Valentine’s Day!). More VDay finds for littles here.
TARGET LAMP. These inexpensive Target lamps were such a cute addition to our upstairs guest bedroom. The rattan shade adds interesting texture, and you can’t beat the price! It has a Serena & Lily vibe, but only $65. You can see it above alongside my tried-and-true favorite candle (Diptyque’s Baies) and a stack of Matouk Auberge initial towels, which I own many sets of and which I’ve also gifted to many friends. It’s special in that it feels like it’s monogrammed/personalized but obviously much less than actually having something customized.
