Hill House Happenings


Unless you are sleeping under a rock, you are probably aware that Hill House Home launched a new collection of their famous Nap Dresses this week. The garden-inspired collection features beautiful prints and some truly charming silhouettes. My favorite new pieces {both of which I wear as true nightgowns} are this one and this one. I am also a huge fan of their headbands and recently ordered this one in pink for Spring. Sweet dreams, darlings!

Forever My Favorite



I truly adore everything London-based designer, Emilia Wicksead designs. But, I don't think I have ever loved anything as much the wedding gown she designed for herself. I will never forget when I saw images of her wedding day 10 years ago, when I was in the midst of planning my own wedding. Years later, I would love to wear her gown if I could get married all over again. Inspired by Audrey Hepburn in the movie, Sabrina, the dress is utterly timeless and absolutely irresistible. I could not help but share it yet again!

Brock Collection x Minnow Swim

This week I was beyond delighted to find out that my very favorite children's swimwear brand, Minnow and one of the most beautiful womenswear brands, Brock Collection collaborated to create a whimsical capsule collection for children that knocked me off my feet! Incorporating one of my very favorite blue and white Brock floral prints (which I actually have in this top) the swim styles are truly irresistible. I could not resist purchasing this and this for Grace and this gorgeous pareo for myself. Dive in, darlings!

Classic Boys Outfiting Ideas

I have truly always had such fun dressing my boys and some of the most frequent questions I get are around classic boys clothing pieces. Thus, I thought I would put together a list that includes the key staples I keep stocked in my boys' wardrobes. While some of these pieces may be slightly more of an investment, they are truly worth it as your boys will wear them over and over again. They will look pulled together without you having to try! Here are a few of my favorite pieces to keep your boys (2 and over) cute, classic and comfortable.... 
 
 
 
 
POLO SHIRTS - Lacoste are at the top of my list, particularly in Navy

STRIPED LONG SLEEVE TOPS - I live for these from Saint James 

SWEATPANTS - These from H&M and these from Zara have the best fit 

SHORTS - I love a shorter short with an elastic waistband and the best are Cadets and Beaufort Bonnet
 
CASHMERE SWEATER - You can never have too many Ralph Lauren Cable Knit Sweaters - don't fret about getting them dirty, seriously!  

OUTERWEAR - The perfect finishing touch - my favorites are this Barn Jacket & this Patagonia Vest
 
THE BLUE BLAZER - Nothing more fitting for any special occasion and truly no one does it better than Ralph Lauren  

PAJAMAS - These are both classic & comfortable 

SHOES - Can't go wrong with New Balance Sneakers, Cienta Slip Ons, or Supergas

Perfect Princess Di



I have most certainly been on a Princess Diana kick after watching the latest season of The Crown. I recently started reading this book about her life (which I cannot put down) and I was reminded of this editorial featured in Paris Vogue in April 2018 inspired by the Princess. It you have not seen it in it's entirety, it's truly a treat.

Kilte Collection

I am always so inspired to watch empowered women and mothers follow their dreams and start incredible new companies. Thus, I am delighted to introduce you to Kilte, a gorgeous knitwear brand that I am seriously smitten with. Each beautiful piece was designed with the modern woman in mind who embodies more than one thing - whether that's a mother, a partner, a friend, or colleague. The sustainable, luxury knitwear is just as beautiful, smart, and multi-dimensional as the women who wear it. Personally, my favorite piece is the Ruthie Cardigan {shown above}, which was actually named after a dear friend and former colleague of mine ... making the sweater that much more special to me. This cashmere Hannah Duster is also dreamy and I cannot get enough of the new strawberry colorway they just released. Sweaters just got sweeter and smarter.

Gifting for a Good Cause


I am absolutely delighted to have partnered with Modatrova this holiday season to put together a curated gift guide of my favorite pieces from their website to benefit Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. The cause is truly near and dear to my heart as the hospital has provided incredible care to my daughter throughout her life. It is one of the leading children's hospitals in the world, yet what makes it even more special is that it is a non-profit hospital meaning that {thanks to generous donors} no child is ever turned away from treatment or care they need due to financial circumstances. Use the code "CAITLIN" at checkout on Modatrova and 10% of your order will go directly to the Lucile Packard Foundation. It is lovely to be able to buy gifts during the holidays while also making a difference to children and families who are truly going through so much.

Andion


 
Today I am delighted to share with you a {new to me} clothing brand I am beyond excited about. Andion is a Spanish family run atelier which has been around since 1975. They just recently expanded their business by offering orders through instagram DM. All their styles are made to order and made to measure. You are able to pick from an incredible array of styles and fabrics. I absolutely cannot get enough and am excited to order a few pieces for myself (thinking the top above in both this print and classic crisp white poplin).

Dressing for the Holidays

This year the holidays may be different, but I am still planning on dressing my children in traditional Christmas looks. For the past three years I have gotten my children's holiday outfits from Daniel & Sofia (truly one of my favorite shops!). They always have a beautiful selection of brother-sister looks and I tend to gravitate towards the classic velvet pieces in crimsons and reds. Here are a few of my favorite looks for this year ....
 
 
 
Grace has this velvet dress in Ice Blue (I adore it!) and she will be wearing it in Red this year. If you have a baby girl it has the most darling matching bubble , and this classic short set for boys. 
 
 
Last year, my children wore these gorgeous burgundy pieces and I loved the richness of the color in velvet. I adore this long sleeve dress for girls, or this bubble for a baby girl and this short set for baby boys.  


And lastly, if you celebrate Hanukkah these ice blue velvet styles would be absolutely gorgeous! This dress for girls is one of my favorite of Graces, and it has matching shortalls for baby boys and clean shorts for big brother. 
 
 
 
 
Happy Holidays!

Memo



There is truly nothing quite like a hand written note. Thus, I was delighted to discover the newly founded bespoke stationery brand, Memo. Based in the UK and founded by former jewelry editor (and mother of two!), Alice Edwards, the pieces are absolutely exquisite with their elegant calligraphy and hand done watercolors. You can customize your stationery with an impeccable assortment of colors and combinations. I have a set of these personalized notecards (in ballet with my initials in olive) that I absolutely adore and next I want to get a set of the writing paper (how stunning is this blue?!). The timing of this launch is quite perfect just before the holidays as a set of this stationery would truly make a wonderful (& thoughtful) gift for any woman in your life.

Something Borrowed


 
I was awe-struck by the gorgeous photos of Eunice Kennedy Shriver in her grandmother's Dior wedding gown for her intimate nuptials  in Florida. The dress was beautifully preserved and updated with a custom strapless bodice. In the past 67 years, the dress had aged into a French Vanilla ivory, which I think made it even more striking. What a truly special "something borrowed". See more of this lovely day on Vogue.Com.

Seriously Smitten with these Slippers

I recently came across this gorgeous new slipper brand, Olivia Morris at Home, and to say I am seriously smitten is an understatement. I have truly never felt compelled to buy slippers until now {but don't you think for a second that I won't also be wearing these out of the house}. I am particularly fond of the Daphne style and cannot even begin to decide my favorite colorway between the grey, cornflower blue, or green. Handmade in Spain, the details are absolutely impeccable. There is truly no place like home ...

AERIN'S ENTERTAINING BEAUTIFULLY


Aerin Lauder has long been one of my ultimate style icons. Thus, I was truly excited when her new book, Entertaining Beautifully, arrived on my doorstep just last week {I had been anticipating it for quite some time as I pre-ordered it months ago}. I quickly made myself a cup of tea and sat down to devour every page. The book is a gorgeous glimpse into her marvelous world of entertaining and teaming with tips, tricks, and endless inspiration. It is most certainly a must-read.

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.
