A little late to the game but let’s talk about Lake. By now you have seen them on almost every influencer and I am sure you have been served an instagram ad or ten. I admit I was thoroughly influenced, drank the kool-aid a year or two ago and am now on a mission to only wear Lake Pajamas to sleep. They are what they say they are – pajama perfection. For many years after college my pajamas consisted of old sorority and vacation t-shirts and maybe a nice set from Target or two. Now I am the proud owner of a few Lake sets and continue to grow my collection. Let’s just say my sleep is a lot more chic!
My favorite are the short sets, number one being the Pima short set with short sleeves. The long sleeve set is nice, but the short sleeve is where it’s at. These are perfect for going on trips with friends and family, easy to go from bed to the breakfast table.
I am currently eyeing THIS gauze caftan to try.
Tips – they do a few good sales a year, I try to stock up then. They aren’t the cheapest but I will say they wear the best out of any pj’s I have tried. Also, if you want to dry them order a size up, they do shrink.
SHOP MY FAVORITES –
Going crazy over the new home arrivals at H&M! Just scooped up these glass candle holders, fingers crossed they make it here in one piece!
All things green! For as long as I can remember green has been my favorite color, and also my birthstone, Emerald. I recently scooped up this Riley Sheehey fabric and am feeling so inspired by the color.
SHOP THE POST –
You know that feeling when you see an old friend that you haven’t seen or spoken to in a while, maybe even years, but you some how pick up right where you left off without skipping a beat?!
That is how I feel about this space. I haven’t been here in a while but am picking right back where I left off – my love (and knack) for sharing fabulous finds.
Over the years I have acquired quite the collection of glassware. Some gifts, some handed down from family members and a few I’ve scooped up along the way. During this quarantine time we’ve been reaching for our glassware now more than ever – cocktail hour, every hour!
We were inspired to create this bespoke collection of colorfully festive drinking glasses on a trip to Italy’s beloved Floating City. Designed in homage to the defining arches that adorn Venice’s most iconic bridge, our Rialto Tumbler is perfect for everything from water to wine. Finished by hand in Turkey, it requires a multi-step process that is executed by artisans. No two are exactly alike, and subtle nuances in depth of color and cutwork are to be expected and embraced.
I cannot recommend these jeans enough; the Gap mid-rise kick crop. I bought a pair over the holidays and have since bought a second pair, and a third pair in white. I ordered them in a tall and cut the bottoms to the exact length I wanted. One pair perfect for booties and the other pair for tennis shoes. They are super soft and by far the most comfortable jeans I own.
Before the holidays I began the search for a structured handbag that wasn’t too expensive, would keep its shape and would hold everything from file folders to my laptop; without looking like a piece of luggage. I stumbled upon this bag on Amazon and with the rave reviews, the price point, and the sleek, chic design (very similar to this high-end designer bag), I ordered it. A few months in and I can honestly say it is one of my favorite purses I have purchased. The quality surpasses some of my more expensive bags and the size is just large enough to tote my laptop but also small enough to head to happy hour after work without looking like I just stepped off the plane. Best part is comes 26 – YES – 26 colors!
I selected a neutral canvas with coordinating leather. Gave it one spray of scotch guard to protect the canvas and haven’t looked back! How fun is this orange for summer?!
…is this thing on… it’s been FAR too long since my last post! So many exciting things happening – my boyfriend proposed in October, the holidays are upon us and we are in full wedding planning mode – needless to say the celebrations have not stopped!
I can’t believe the year is almost over and Christmastime is here. Every year I look forward to slowing down and enjoying the season with my friends and family. It’s a running joke in my family that once December 1 rolls around they can expect my wish list in their inbox! Sharing a peek at my wish list below.
Coffee Table Book – Being newly engaged my eyes are on all things bridal! This book was one of the first things on my list – the most chic bridal inspiration! Not to mention will look great on my coffee table.
Structured Tote – I need a new tote that I can fit everything and won’t lose its shape; this one fits the bill. And it’s on Amazon Prime – win!
Casual Sneakers – My white sneakers have seen better days and I am need of an upgrade.
Hyped Facial Products – In 2019 I want to take better care of my skin and this three-step process has amazing reviews.
Checked Bag – truth is I already purchased this one for myself. I needed a bag that I could check for an upcoming trip and the price and style was right on this one.
