The brilliant brainchild of Natalie Bloomingdale, the shop aims to offer handcrafted, hard to find investment pieces from independent designers who are not otherwise available online.

Cute Suit


 
I am truly such a fan of Zimmermann's incredible swimsuits like this and this. And this blue bikini (also available here and here) is seriously making all my swimwear dreams come true! From the subtle stripe to the undeniably feminine ruffle this suit is way more than just cute.

I am seriously swooning over every room in interior designer, Jenny Wolf's newly renovated New York home (see the entire thing here on Vogue.Com). From the perfect paint colors on every wall to the guest room complete with Scalamandre and Leontine Linens ... I absolutely cannot get enough! What fabulous interior inspiration to start off the week.

dCc Deal Alert: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 
Run, don't walk darlings ... the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here!

Thus, making it the perfect time to stock up on your Fall wardrobe essentials. I love to use this sale for just that ... to purchase timeless pieces I know will never markdown again. Below are a few of my favorite things that will never go out of style.

Bodysuits are Back

Bodysuits are back in a big way and this one from J.CREW is pure perfection. I find that there is nothing more annoying than constantly having to re-tuck in your button down (especially when running after little ones!). This solves that problem, keeping you looking neat and chic.

MDS Stripes Resort 2018


It is no secret that I am seriously smitten with everything Mark D. Sikes touches. His timeless style is absolutely impeccable, thus it is no surprise I am quite a fan of his line, MDS Stripes. They recently launched their Resort 2018 Collection and I cannot get enough! I have always adored his clean stripes, but the styling in this line is perfection, as they have paired the stripes with gorgeous floral. A match made in heaven. All styles available for pre-order now on Moda Operandi. Run, don't walk, darlings.

Dress Obsessed

You know I absolutely can't resist a good shoulder bow (as evident here and here). Thus, I am truly obsessed with this gorgeous dress from the Marchesa Spring 2018 Collection. Can someone please wear this!? Or how amazing would it be to get this made in Navy for another event? ... a girl can dream!

Can't Get Enough Fall 2017 Couture

The Fall 2017 Couture shows in Paris this past week were truly everything I adore. Of course, I loved seeing the incredible creations of my tried and true favorites like Giambattista Valli and Ralph & Russo. However, I was most blown away by the breathtaking designs of two California-based brands, who both made their debut in Paris this week ... Monique Lhuiller and Rodarte. Simply stunning. I am just swooning thinking about the shows {and thank you Instagram for allowing us to all feel like we are there even without an invitation to the front row}

Cece Barfield Thompson

I am seriously smitten with interior designer CeCe Barfield Thompson. It is no surprise that her impeccable taste is truly timeless as she started her design career working for Bunny Williams. I absolutely adore this beautiful room she designed for her daughters, and love the way she evolved the space once her second little darling was born. See a feature of the entire room here. She is also one of my latest Insta crushes. Follow her (@cecebarfieldthompson) if you love the perfect mix of gorgeous design, darling little ones, and seriously chic style.

Chic Sleep





There is no denying that I have a serious weakness for buying pajamas and these new ones from Serena & Lily have me swooning. With the crisp cotton percale fabrication and classic details, I cannot get enough. From the oxford stripe to the gingham to the embroidered pair .. I'll take one of each please! Why not sleep in something chic?

Secrets to Getting by Without a Diaper Bag

 
Just like driving a mini-van, one thing I told myself I would never do as a mom is carry an actual diaper bag (though, I am not against anyone who does!). I have come up with two necessities that easily allow me keep everything organized and to transfer all my "stuff" (even with two kids) from bag to bag whether it's a Goyard, L.L. Bean Boat n' Tote or something in between. I have made it by thus far without EVER carrying a true diaper bag. 

The first necessity is a pouch or clutch for YOUR stuff. Yes, we are always worrying about THEIR stuff. But, I have found that putting my wallet, keys, sunglasses, lipgloss .. etc into a zip pouch is lifesaving. You will never be stuck frantically digging through the bag for your keys while you have a screaming little one. I personally love the idea of a pouch like this or this that can double as a clutch when you need one. 

The second necessity, is a zip pouch for a few diapers, wipes, sunscreen, snacks etc. I adore this one from Pottery Barn as it can be monogrammed and is plastic lined for any spills (which we know happen!) If you have more than one kid I recommend getting one for each (thank you, monogram) with their individual supplies.

You will never have to carry an actual diaper bag again. You're welcome, darlings.

Kate Schelter's Classic Style


Kate Schelter is an undeniably talented illustrator, stylist, and creative director, who has worked with brands from Bonpoint to Bulgari. Thus, she is a perfect person to write a book about timeless style. Her new book, "Classic Style: Hand It Down, Dress It Up, Wear it Out" is a beautifully illustrated guide to the 'classics' - from clothing to beauty to accessories to everyday objects that can define your personal style. Kate's mantra to personal style is one I whole heartedly agree with ..  inspiring you to buy less, buy better, reinvent what you already have and own your look. Happy reading!

Peep's Paper Products

I absolutely adore Peep's Paper Products whimsical designs from their custom wedding invitations to their unique playing cards (hello, cute wedding favor!). Thus, I was delighted when they recently released the most beautiful baby book featuring sweet watercolor designs. This luxurious journal is truly the perfect way to document your baby's first year and makes a truly thoughtful gift.

Sachin & Babi Bridal Spring 2018

 
I have long admired Sachin & Babi's simply show-stopping evening wear (this is now one of my go-to's in my closet). Recently their beyond beautiful bridal collections have also caught my eye. The Spring 2018 Collection is absolutely breath-taking. Brides-to-be, take note.

Favorite Father's Day Find


I have long admired Cuyana's intentionally designed products made with undeniable quality. You can expect to see me wearing this beach hat from their latest Collection all Summer long. 

Thus, as I was searching for the perfect Father's Day gift, I was absolutely delighted to come across their Weekender Bag. The combination of the classic canvas (particularly in the Charcoal hue!) matched with beautiful leather details makes this piece a 'must-have' for every Dad. Not to mention it is perfectly personalized with his initials. Want to make the gift extra special? Put a voucher for a weekend away together inside. Or ... just throw one of your darling children in there like I did!
