A mezcla of things today —
Even more, plus some notes, below…
+My favorite $69 shades are back in a fab oatmeal color. You can also get them on sale in black (one of the three colors I own, as I also have them in caramel and tortoise), plus an extra 15% off with code FUN15, bringing them down to $45 (and free ship!). (Meghan Markle is also a fan.)
+Petite Plume look for less.
+People are obsessed with this travel toiletry bag. Apparently it fits an absolute ton and is wonderfully designed. The hook sounds convenient to hang so you can find everything easily!
+This $125 knit cape is SO chic.
+This chic lamp is somehow over 50% off!
+Love these monogrammed travel pouches in the gingham — so cute for a baby bag / gift for a new mom with baby’s initials!
+Speaking of new babies, Reed + Barton piggy banks make for an heirloom-tier gift for a new little one. Mini received one when she was born and we bought micro his own! They were on my mind the other day when a friend asked what to give as godparents to the newborns. I had initially thought of one of these beautiful personalized crosses, which I have gifted in the past, but also understood perhaps she wanted to give something else for the baby’s birth and then would give something more religious for the Baptism. A few other fabulous “heirloom-quality” gifts for a new one:
TIFFANY BABY COMB (MINI RECEIVED ONE OF THESE!)
+La Ligne vibes for a fraction of the price.
+Blinged out rainboots.
+Swooning over these earrings.
+Lake Pajamas just restocked their wildly popular smocked cotton nightgowns.
+Another Banana Republic slam dunk. Love the silhouette, love that they’re machine-washable, love the colors! Also love this boucle shacket, especially as it’s styled on the site — with a big belt over top! OMG how chic.
+These suede mules are insanely chic — they remind me of something by Mansur Gavriel but are currently on sale for under $100!
+I have been testing this squalane toning spray and I have to say I really like it. I spray it onto clean skin, before serums/SPF, and then also use it again to set/soften makeup at the end of applying and often as a midday pick-me-up. I tend to rotate through these kinds of sprays — I have also liked Chantecaille’s Rose Spray (though I have a girlfriend who insists Mario Badescu’s formula is very similar and like 1/10th the price), Kopari’s Coconut Spray, and Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir. They’re all addictive and useful in the routine though I find that when I’m through with a bottle, I don’t necessarily rush to replace. Then a few months later, I’ll happen upon another spray and love it and wonder why I let those lapses happen. I’m not sure — maybe it’s just not a truly essential product. A nice-to-have, not need-to-have. Regardless, I’m enjoying the squalane spray while I have it on hand!
+This pineapple laundry basket is charming.
+Speaking of Gap, they always have great layering finds — love this ribbed henley.
+This scalloped pendant is fab.
+This twill field jacket in the blue is v chic.
+J’adore this padded woven headband in the greatest pink color.
+These wide-leg pants come in such good colors.
+This necklace is just joyful!
