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!

J. Mendel Resort 2018

 
When I typically think of J. Mendel ... fabulous furs immediately come to mind. But, out of all the Resort Collections for the 2018 season, I have to say that J. Mendel truly had some of my favorite pieces. These dresses are each exquisite from the intricate details to sculptural silhouettes and beautiful color palette (which you know well by now is my favorite!). Simply swooning. For those of you who are just as in love with this collection as I am ... the pieces are currently available for pre-order on Moda Operandi.

Truly Timeless


 
I have long adored the Hermes Kelly Watch as it is truly a timeless timepiece that is both subtle and sophisticated. It's versatile enough to wear with everything from blue jeans to black tie (particularly in black, like mine) What is fantastic is lately I have found a multitude of these beauties on The Real Real and Saks Off Fifth for quite a steal (a fraction of the price!) - I am loving this one, and this one

Serious Skin Saver


I have to admit that I never been the best about putting sunscreen on my face daily. At the beach ... of course. But, for everyday ... nope. I just have never found a sunscreen that I loved the way it felt on my skin, especially with make-up since I love a super minimal look. Thus, I was absolutely delighted that Glossier came out with their revolutionary Invisible Shield SPF 35. It is absolutely a game changer. The clear watergel formula feels like a serum and leaves absolutely no reside. In fact, it's the opposite ... I think it actually makes your skin glow. A serious skin saver.

Making Laundry Luxurious

 
Laundry and luxury are two words that you would never imagine in the same sentence. However, interior designer, Dina Bandman, showed us that is not the case with the exquisite laundry room she designed for this year's San Francisco Decorator Showcase. From the de Gournay wallpaper to the gorgeous floors ... I wouldn't mind doing load after load if this what my laundry room looked like.

Another way to make the mundane task of doing laundry just a little more luxurious is with products from The Laudress, they are non-toxic, smell incredible ... not to mention have the chicest packaging I've ever seen on cleaning products. I am seriously smitten with their cashmere wash, which is a savior for my sweaters (and dry cleaning bill!) and their line of baby products.

Head Over Heels: Powder Puff

 
Velvet shoes are everywhere these days from these Alexandre Birman beauties to the latest Valentino Pre-Fall Collection. But the latest ones I am truly head over heels for are these Aquazzura Powder Puff heels complete with velvet and the perfect pom pom. I cannot decide between the grey or rose for Fall. Which shoes would you chose?!

La Ligne Monograms

I was absolutely delighted to recently discover that one of my favorite brands for all things chic and striped, La Ligne, now does monogramming. They have mastered the art of classic with a twist and did just the same with their monograms. Just as one often strikes through their name when writing a personal note on formal stationery, they do just the same with their monograms (.. and I love it!). I just ordered this tee and am seriously considering this sweater from their collection. Perfectly personal.

Can't Miss from Cannes

The fashion on the Red Carpet at the Cannes Film Festival every year is always truly jaw dropping. From the setting to the gowns (... and the jewels!) exquisite is an understatement. This year there were two looks that I was seriously swooning over .... Kendall Jenner in Giambattista Valli and Elsa Hosk in Alberta Ferretti. Simply smitten.
