currently coveting no. 74

It is currently 22° (feels like 8°) in NYC and the only thing on my mind is summer. Palm fronds, tassels, and hints of blush pink are catching my eye...

1. Cedric Charlier Palm Leaf Sweater / This sweater has warm weather vibes written all over it.

2. Cave Collective Double Tassel Necklace / I've been wanting this necklace since I first came across it! I love the tassels and subtle blush color.

3. Palm Frond Artwork / If you can't go to the tropics, bring the tropics to you.

4. Fredericks & Mae Wire Tassel Keychain / A pretty tassel that makes finding your keys so much easier!

5. Marysia Swim Santa Monica Bikini / I love Marysia's scallop designs and am very tempted by this new silhouette.

6. J.Crew Ryan Sunglasses / J.Crew just launched sunglasses and I'm smitten with this blush pink, slightly-retro pair.

7. Kayu Cactus Clutch / Carry a piece of the desert with you no matter what type of weather.

8. Loeffler Randall Luz Heels / I have these in black and am thinking I need the nude as well! As a non-heel wearer, these are super comfortable and they add a touch of interest to a simple outfit.

9. Byredo Gypsy Water Lotion / I find fragrance to last so much longer when applied as a lotion and I've been coveting this famed scent from Byredo for a looong time.

10. Indego Africa Eyelash Basket / You can never have too many baskets for hiding things and I love this cute little guy!

So Much Shearling

 

Winter is officially here on the East coast and I cannot get enough of shearling pieces. It started with this fluffy pillow and then this shearling vest (thank you, new job) and has turned into a full-on obsession.

1. Loeffler Randall Shearling Vest (similar here and here)
2. Newbark Roma II Shearling Sandals
3. Loeffler Randall Shearling Industry Bag
4. Brother Vellies Sahara Shearling Slippers (also here)
5. Sea NY Denim Jacket with Shearling Collar
6. West Elm Mongolian Lamb Pillow
7. Carven Oversized Shearling Coat
8. No. 6 Fur Clogs (also here)

I've also had my eye on this shearling-esque Cienne NY Poncho for months now. And in case you're feeling extra spendy, here is the ultimate shearling coat.

This isn't exactly a "currently coveting" list so much as a "look what I might have already bought" list...

ONE / Have you seen Wit & Delight's Target collection yet? I'm so excited for Kate and immediately had to have some of these stoneware trays, which are even more beautiful in person.

TWO / I've been coveting a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag since they came out and finally have one to call my own thanks to Need Supply, Janelle's tipoff and fast checkout skills. It's by far the nicest thing I've ever bought myself and I treat it like it's my child (aka no one's allowed within 5 feet of me + it stays home when there's even a 5% chance of rain). P.S. my other favorite bucket bag.

THREE / One Kings Lane debuted a collection of Pendleton blankets made exclusively for them and I've got my eye on this one. It'd be perfect in our bedroom!

FOUR / You can never have too many notebooks, especially when they're as lovely as this one from Studio Sarah. Her line of paper goods just keeps getting chicer!

FIVE / With the weather getting a bit chillier, it's time to break out the cashmere sweaters. I love this oversized gray one that I'll wear year after year.

SIX / I purchased a pair of Ancient Greek sandals this summer and wore them non-stop. I'd love to add a black pair to my rotation. And how cool are these calf hair ones?

SEVEN / After popping into Zara with Kristen to check out this coat, we both bought it immediately. I haven't been this excited over a coat in a long time and get compliments every time I wear it.

EIGHT / I've been eyeing Daniel Wellington's classic watches for a long time and finally got one (black + rose gold)! It hasn't left my wrist since it came.
