Minnow Resort '21

You all know well by now that minnow is most certainly my favorite children's swim brand. Today, they launched their Resort '21 Collection and it is absolutely magical. I am already day dreaming about my children running around in these suits come Spring. The prints and color palette are pure perfection. There are so many darling suits it is actually quite difficult to pick my favorites but I think this time around for my children I am going to get this and this for Grace and these trunks for the boys. Sunshine awaits!

Can't Get Enough

I spotted this chic image on Lauren Rubinski's instagram this week and I couldn't get enough of it! I think I can say with certainty that it truly serves as my favorite Fall inspiration yet {I'm imagining crisp white straight leg denim on the bottom}. I dug in a little deeper to think about how to achieve the look and found that Rubinski's jewelry is currently available on Moda Operandi. This necklace is perfection, but I also love this necklace and this bracelet as more affordable options.  And as far as the cashmere sweaters, these simple crew neck's from J.CREW are perfect and the price is so reasonable you might as well buy two to put one around your shoulders. Seriously chic.

Bows & Blue

Today my inspiring friend, Emily Hertz of Born on Fifth, launched her latest lovely venture, a beautifully curated shop, Bows & Blue. The name is perfectly descriptive of the darling products she both curated and created. From pretty paper products to lovely linens and more this shop is sure to make you swoon if you are a Grandmillennial at heart. My absolute favorite piece in the collection is this hand painted straw basket with liberty wrapped handles (does it get any better?!). And don't fret darlings, if she is sold out of something you have your eye on, simply put yourself on the notification list and almost everything will be restocking soon!

Poppy for Mrs. Alice

I am constantly swooning over Mrs. Alice's latest tablescapes. She serves as my utmost inspiration when it comes to entertaining and I absolutely adore her latest collaboration with style icon, Poppy Delevingne. The collection celebrates their lifelong friendship and is inspired by classic chinoiserie. My favorite pieces are these whimsical prosecco coups, these blush placements & napkins, and these charming palm candle  holders.  Bon Appetit, darlings!

India Amory x Smockingbird Kids

I have long adored the brand, India Amory's beautiful block prints. In fact, I live in their pareos all Summer long. Thus, I was beyond delighted when founder, Julia told me she was doing a limited edition children's collection. She partnered with Smockingbird Kids to create beyond darling styles that combine truly classic silhouettes with her gorgeous signature block prints. I ordered this dress for my Grace and you better believe if I had a baby I would have stocked up on these to-die for bubbles!

Put a Little Chic In Your Step

 I have long adored Ann Mashburn's impeccably curated shop. Her personal style is the epitome of chic yet undeniably classic. I am so excited to have my first pair of her must have flats for fall, the Buckle Shoe. They pair perfectly with a pair of straight cropped jeans. Mine are navy suede (which I just can't get enough of!), but she has an incredible array of colors (seen here) ... there is truly something for everyone! Put a little chic in your step.

A Snipet of Street Style

There was something truly refreshing and exciting about seeing the Street Style photos from Copenhagen Fashion Week this month as it was the first physical Fashion Week around the globe in quite sometime. The Scandi set is very well versed in chic and their looks did not disappoint. I was particularly drawn to these neutral looks which serve as a fresh reset as we head into Fall. I am excited to start stocking up on pieces like this sweater and think I need to add a new blazer to the mix like this classic. Find more street style looks from the week here.

Julia B. Masks

The pandemic is certainly going on longer than I ever anticipated and now I can't even quite remember what it was like to go out in public without wearing a mask. These handmade embroidered masks from Julia B. are truly the most exquisite I have come across. Perfectly pretty and practical. I recently ordered  this one for myself and I absolutely cannot wait to wear it around town. 
Speaking of masks, these knit masks from Maisonette are all my children's favorite! They are extremely comfortable and fit even my two year old with the mini size (he actually requests to wear it!). I love the blue stripe for boys and the pink stripe for girls. Stay healthy, darlings!

Le Mas des Poiriers x Luxe Provence

Le Mas des Poiriers in Provence is truly one of the dreamiest estates I have ever come across {in fact, I dream of renting the property for a family vacation one day}. The interiors are absolutely impeccably done and thus it is no surprise that when the family behind the property decided to team up with Luxe Provence to design a dress line it was just as dreamy. Using gorgeous Pierre Frey fabrics {which are also used throughout the interiors of the home} and a simple yet stunning silhouette, the dresses are truly show stoppers. I think this one may be my absolute favorite. J'adore!

Can't Get Enough of Cadets

One of the most frequent questions I get about my oldest son, Beau's wardrobe is where I find his short shorts. I used to have to go searching high and low for the perfect pair with an elastic waist fit and always size down a few sizes to make them look as I wanted. But now, the search for the perfect short is over! Given my love of little boys in short shorts, I was absolutely delighted when I discovered the new brand, Cadets, launched by two mothers (with 6 little boys between them!). The shorts fit perfectly and most importantly are extremely comfortable (Beau approves of them too!). These mamas thought of everything with impeccable details like contrast piping and a terry lined elastic waistband for extra comfort. Stock up on one in every color (all of which are darling!)

Sparrows Weave

You all know well by now that I have quite a weakness for wicker. Thus, it is no surprise that I was absolutely delighted when I recently discovered the Australian-based accessories brand, Sparrows Weave. The bags are beyond beautiful and the current Summer collection made my heart skip a beat when I first saw it. I am simply smitten with this wicker and leather tote {which is currently on major sale!} and cannot decide it I would choose the white leather or the classic brown ... which is your favorite?

Plain Goods Children's Collection

If you are unfamiliar with the chicest of shops, PLAIN GOODS, it is truly a must shop. Filled with an impeccably edited assortment of products from women's to home and children's, it is a a treasure trove of simply beautiful pieces with a classic, simple, and restrained aesthetic. They have carried children's clothing for quite some time, but just recently launched their own bespoke children's collection which I absolutely adore! My favorite pieces are this stunning set for infants and this crisp and classic dress for girls. Simply beautiful.

I have long adored Weezie towels since their launch almost two years ago. I am in awe of how they have truly been able to make luxury towels more accessible. From the perfect weight terrycloth, to the impeccable details, and lovely monogram options, I just can't get enough!  I have had their towels for quite some time (love them!), but just recently got my first Weezie robe and it simply has me swooning. I chose the Long Robe with light blue piping (the perfect hue!) and Hudson monogram. What I love about the robe is that it is so soft, but not too heavy unlike so many other robes I have tried before. Oh, I long for a day I could lounge in it all day!
My other absolute favorite products from Weezie are their navy make-up towels ... truly genius! You no longer have to worry about ruining your nice towels again. They are sold as a pair and make a darling gift for a girlfriend. 

Enjoy the stay!

Love All

Upon stumbling across this Monique Lhuillier image I just can't get it out of my head. Truly the most gorgeous Summer inspiration. I would love to re-create this with my sisters is our wedding gowns on the tennis court at our childhood home {since that is where we all got married}.
And speaking of tennis, I am loving all the tennis inspired collections lately like Pamela Munson's new Summer pieces. This bag is my absolute favorite. But, LOVE All.

Elevate the Everyday

Eating at home every night for the past four months has truly made me appreciate the beauty of elevating the everyday and making family meals together feel special. Even if we were just eating delivery pizza at home, I decided that it would be fun to upgrade our tableware and invest in some beautiful pieces that would make for lovely tablescapes. But, I wanted to be sure to balance the pretty with the practical given that I have three young children at home. With those parameters, here are my favorite finds for Summer entertaining, as we all spend more time at home than ever before.
ALICE NAYLOR LEYLAND - Scalloped Placemats {beautiful & water resistant!}

The AVENUE - Melamine Blue & White Botanical Plates 

INDIA AMORY - Tablecloths

THE AVENUE - Wicker Covered Thermos (does coffee get cuter?!) 

THE LEWIS MILLER DESIGN x LSD - Flower Flash Box (stunning & benefits a good cause}

THE AVENUE - Liberty Napkins & Coordinating Placemats

and speaking of entertaining .... I truly can't wait for Aerin Lauder's new book "Entertaining Beautifully" to come out in September. Pre-Order it here

Ariel Orkin x Chasing Paper

I have long adored the work of interior designer, Ariel Orkin and have always been quite the fan of removable wallpaper {particularly for children's rooms}. Thus, I am quite excited about her upcoming collaboration with Chasing Paper. We got a sneak peek of the inspiration behind each of the papers through these impeccably done mood boards by Abby Ward. I am truly smitten with every single one and have been dreaming up where I could put some of this paper up in my home.
