Lately, my children and I have absolutely been living in LAKE pajamas. Thus, it was a delight to be able to spend the morning shooting their latest collection in our home (of course, it was even more delightful as we were baking cookies!) Their new Amour collection is perfectly sweet featuring darling hearts, macarons, and the perfect stripe. I have been wearing my heart poplin set almost nightly and it is too fun to get to match with my darling Grace (she agrees!). My children adore these pjs as much as I do because they are the softest out there. Sweet dreams, darlings!

Lots of Love for leMel

 I am always delighted to discover new personalized products as I adore giving them as gifts (and of course, also love receiving them myself!). Thus, I was very excited to recently be introduced to leMel Jewelry, which is a lovely brand founded by two sisters focusing on allowing women to add a little extra sparkle into their everyday lives. I immediately fell in love with their danity initial necklaces which are perfectly chic and subtle. I am truly delighted to have this one with all three of my children's initials on it. These absolutely make the most perfect gift for any occasion, but I particularly love them as a gift for a mother who has just had a baby (husbands, are you reading this!?)

Lately, I have seriously been swooning over the Pre-Spring & Spring 2020 Collections of luxury label, Khatie. I has been a pleasure watching the womenswear brand continue to grow rapdily as I actually worked with the Creative Director, Catherine Holstein when she was a young designer for GAP many years ago. You may have heard about the brand recently when this cashmere bra and sweater were spotted on Katie Holmes went viral and everyone in the fashion industry was absolutely swooning over the look. The latest collection is truly irresistible between the bold shoulder and undeniably feminine necklines. This velvet mini dress may just be one of my favorite dresses EVER. Can't get enough Khatie.

Charlotte sy Dimby x Born on Fifth

I am constantly asked what my favorite smocked dresses are for Grace and I always answer that the most beautiful come from the French brand, Charlotte sy Dimby. Their quality is impeccable and styles are utterly classic. I am delighted as the dear and darling Emily from Born on Fifth has created her second collaboration with the brand and will be hosting a trunk show in Atalanta on February 13th. The pieces are beyond darling (with matching baby boy styles too!). They are taking pre-orders through today (simply reach out to @charlotte_sy_dimby) to reserve your child's size or you can also reach out to Emily @bornonfifth to be invited to the trunk show, which will happen next month. I am beyond delighted about the dress I pre-ordered for Grace. Happy Shopping!

I truly adore London-based childrenswear brand, Il Porticcolo, which features traditional Italian designs. The shop is beautifully curated with the owners favorite Italian brands as well as features her own collection. I am seriously smitten with her winter pieces.

Currently Crushing on this Bride

From the moment I saw photographs of Moda Operandi's deputy editor, Tatiana Hambro's wedding in England I absolutely could not get enough of her look. Truly one of the most stunning brides I have ever seen. Her custom Barbara Tfank gown was the epitome of chic and her family's Victorian crown was {without a doubt} the icing on the cake.  And just when I thought I couldn't love her look more... I saw her after party dress. The Markarian party piece was an absolute delight with and irresistible scoop neckline, perfect puff sleeves, and hand placed organza flowers. Truly a princess bride. For a full look at her wedding head to Vogue.Com

La Coqueta Newborn Gifting

La Coqueta has long been one of my favorite childrenswear brands with truly timeless pieces. It is no denying that the wonderful founder of the brand {who is an incredible mother of five children herself!} knows exactly what every new mother needs. Thus, I was delighted that they have just launched the most gorgeous newborn gifting capsule which features precious cotton pieces finished with the most impeccable details. I adore all babies in white and thus this set might be my favorite, but I also cannot resist this darling cashmere set. You would certainly have the sweetest gift at any baby shower up with one of these!

Luisa Beccaria S/S 20 Show

I was seriously smitten with the Luisa Beccaria S/S 20 Show. From the classic Summer whites to the feminine florals and always undeniable ball gowns it was pure perfection. The models playing badminton on the runway was just the icing on the cake for this show that truly felt like a Summer Garden Party. The mother-daughter duo behind the label, are known for their dreamy evening gowns, but I love how in this collection they also incorporated more everyday cotton pieces that are just as gorgeous. The entire collection is currently available for pre-order on Moda Operandi.

Becky Boyle Interiors

From the moment I laid eyes on them, I have been seriously swooning over the rooms Becky Boyle designed for the Southern Living Showcase Home in Nashville. It is no surprise that I adore the designer's impeccable taste given that before starting her eponymous firm she was the Senior Designer for Mark. D Sikes {another absolute favorite of mine}. 

I truly wish I could transport both this dining room and bunkroom straight into my home. From the Gracie and Lulie Wallace wallpapers to the perfect d. Porthault pillow accents ... she truly thought of it all. I absolutely cannot wait to see what this talented young designer does next!

Dear Annabelle

I have always adored sending and receiving snail mail and thus shopping for stationery is truly a guilty pleasure. I am seriously smitten with the playful yet polished new stationery brand, Dear Annabelle. Founded by a former editor of Town & Country with impeccable taste, the luxury paper brand aims to remind us all of the joy of the handwritten note in this digital age. My personal favorites in their first collection are their notepads and Je T'aime Notecards. It's absolutely 'delight delivered', darlings.
