Currently Coveting No. 75

I can hardly believe that this weekend is Memorial Day weekend. I've been longing for summer for months and I am so happy it's finally here! As soon as summer hits, I put away most of my black pieces and my wardrobe shifts into more blues and whites...

1. Isabel Marant Étoile Embroidered Cover-Up / I've had my eye on the shirt version of this for months, but now it's sadly sold out! I love the embroidery on this cover-up and it's on sale! (Also here). I recently scooped up a more budget-friendly version from Zara.

2. Cuyana Summer Hat / I wanted this hat last summer and when it returned this year, I immediately purchased it! I love how much coverage the wide brim gives you.

3. Mansur Gavriel Suede Mules / I love the shape of these mules and the navy suede will carry you from spring to fall. 

4. Straw Tote by Sensi Studio / What's summer without the perfect carryall for the beach? I love that this straw tote isn't fussy and over decorated.

5. Vintage Levi's Shorts / After finding so-so pairs of vintage Levi's shorts, I sucked it up and went to The Line to find my perfect pair. They fit so well and I know I'll wear them all summer long. (Also here).

6. & Other Stories Striped Tee / I've been living in striped crewneck tees and I love the unique back on this one. Pairs perfectly with the above shorts or below skirt!

7. Zara Striped Midi Dress / As always, Zara is killing it in the summer dress game. I had to have this off-the-shoulder dress after seeing it on Harley Viera-Newton (hint: it looks better if you tie the bow directly in the front!).

8. J.Crew Clip-Dot Midi Skirt / This skirt reminds me of an old Creatures of Comfort skirt that I never tracked down. I love wearing white midi skirts in summer - so easy with a simple tee and sandals.

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.
