(one) I saw a girl rocking red skinnies and light gray Hunter rain boots the other day, and thought the combo was so chic and interesting. I believe that in general color theory terms, it’s not really supposed to work, but there’s something about how they play off one another that I found so eye-catching and fresh. I have these Minnie’s in red (remember?), and I can’t wait for the weather to get a little cooler to pair it with a variety of gray sweaters I own. (two) Ann Taylor. I mean, seriously? Have you guys checked out their site lately? They have really been stepping it up and I can’t believe that what I’m seeing is actually Ann Taylor! I used to shop there in college — to get suits we were required to wear for business presentations. You’ve come a long way, Ann. (three) I have been longing for a Louis Philippe style mirror for my living room, but they’re notoriously pricey. I couldn’t believe it when I happened upon this one in a thrift store over the weekend — for fifty bones! I’m going to paint it (easiest DIY ever) and love it forever. Bonus points to Joe, who was the one who suggested we check out the thrift shop in the first place. (four) No seriously, Ann Taylor. (five) Aromatherapy Associates very kindly gifted me a whole goody bag of their skincare products. I have yet to dive into any of the others, but the first thing I tried out was their Overnight Repair Mask. I layer it over my favorite facial oil, then go to sleep. You wake up with baby soft, smooth skin, and I personally think it’s reduced the size of my cheek pores. Pricey, but a perfect once per week or once every two week indulgence. (six) I saw these pretty candles in Anthro the other day and was so charmed by their pottery look. And then you open and smell them and realize you need every single scent. Hashtag candle hoarder.
