chopped my hair a few months ago but it's since grown out and is in need of a trim. I'm having serious hair envy over stylist Kate Brien's cut and color! Follow her on instagram here and here for lots of style inspiration.

I've been meaning to check out the new restaurant in our neighborhood, Gato. It's a new spot by chef Bobby Flay and now that I know that Michael Bierut is behind the design for it, I can't wait to try it! I loved reading about the design process for the restaurant (p.s. he's one of my favorite graphic designers).

Loving the spring collection from Building Block - their structured bags are beyond cool and I love the way they styled their lookbook.

currently coveting no. 67

After a month of no shopping (more on that soon!) I'm approaching my shopping much more methodically and carefully - choosing pieces that will last and that I'll wear over and over. All of the above seem to fit the bill + are high on my wishlist!

ONE / I've been seeing products by Grown Alchemist popping up all over and am curious about this botanical beauty brand from Australia. Anyone tried it?

TWO / As I mentioned on Monday, I just tried on glasses by Steven Alan and a pair of their charcoal crystal specs have headed straight to the top of my wishlist! I love how flattering this colorway is on my lighter skintone.

THREE / I seem to buy a new pair of natural sandals every spring and these Zara cutaway sandals have caught my eye.

FOUR / A classic bucket bag has been on my wishlist for over a year and I cannot believe how good this one is - for only $25!

FIVE / I can't get enough of sweatshirts this year and this neoprene one by Katie Ermilio for Steven Alan is just too good. Her clothes have always seemed too feminine for my taste but I love this unique piece of hers!

SIX / Just like the natural sandals, a new striped dress is a must every spring. This one checks all the boxes and is only $40. Megan sold me on it in her latest post!

SEVEN / You guys - these are the best black jeans out there. Janelle and I swear by them and with Shopbop's 25% off sale, you have to scoop them up. I just bought a second pair considering I wear them at least 3 times a week!

EIGHT / I've always admired Byredo's simple packaging and only this weekend did I finally get a chance to test some of their scents. I instantly fell in love with Bal d'Afrique and am claiming it as my signature scent.

weekend moments

Finally, a weekend with weather that truly felt like spring! I had quite a busy weekend running all over the city. On Saturday I met up with Sarah to work on a design project we're doing for SaraKate, which is all very exciting! After that I finally stopped by the Steven Alan Outpost store on the Upper West Side and wanted to buy everything! I ended up with the Lilly Bag and my mom got a pair of their sunglasses. This was the first time I checked out their eyewear in person and I was so impressed with it! On Sunday we had a great brunch at August - our first time at this pretty West Village restaurant. Hope you all enjoyed your weekends!

I'm obsessed with the new colored pots The Sill is offering for their plants that I want to scoop up a ton of their plants so I can recreate the above image in my windowsill! So happy and cheerful.

It's no secret that I have an admiration for Jessica de Ruiter so I was pleasantly surprised to find this recent Q+A with her. I loved reading her answers!

It's been a dream of mine to travel to Africa and see animals in their natural surroundings. Diana's photos from Kruger National Park have me plotting an imaginary trip to visit South Africa. I'm blown away by how beautifully she captured all of the animals!

ring stacks

I can't get enough of delicate gold jewelry and am slowly but surely adding to my daily styles. I most recently bought the simple gold band on Etsy and can't recommend it enough. I did a lot of research before to make sure it wouldn't turn my fingers green! So far so good - and you can't beat the price. My best friend and I both have the small heart ring from Catbird as a little friendship ring and the knot ring was a gift from my boyfriend and is from Ariel Gordon.

Here are some that I have my eye on:

Fay Andrada / Gorjana / Fine by Dannijones / Grace Lee / Blanca Monros Gomez / Gabriela Artigas

With summer approaching (okay, spring), I've noticed a void in my shorts department and am currently coveting a pair of distressed denim cutoffs. I have my eye on these and these but am also trolling Etsy for some vintage Levi's. I'm intrigued by this seller who will custom make them for you so you get the level of distressing you want.

I have a girl crush on Sofia Coppola and loved getting a peek into her workspace. I'm super jealous of her coral Blu Dot Strut desk and her Ed Ruscha artwork. I'd love to have one of his prints someday!

Last week I shared a few of my favorite American made brands on The American Edit. Pop on over and check it out! Thanks so much for having me, Rita!
