I’m Loving…

It’s rare that I’ll completely splurge on things for myself and for my closet, but there have been a few items that found their way to my front doorstep recently and a bunch of others that are serious contenders (and I think you’ll love them too). I’ve long been a big fan of Diptyque’s Do Son perfume, but had never pulled the trigger on buying a bottle for myself. Browsing around the other day, I realized their solid perfume version was the perfect thing — same lovely scent, but in a chic, portable package. I’ve actually been leaving this on our entry table and throwing it into my bag as needed, so I can apply on my way out the door or on the go. I love it! But not to be outdone, Byredo makes a beautiful collection of candles and perfumes, and I’m dying to check out the latest release: Flowerhead. I mean, read the description here…how can one not be intrigued?

I mentioned last week about the slow transitioning to lots and lots of silk shirts. Equipment has long been a favorite, but honestly, lately Everlane is killing it and has become my go to source for affordable silk tops. The quality is great, the fit as good as Equipment, and the price can’t be beat. Still, Equipment is fantastic for fun takes on silk tops, like this.

Another recent splurge were these Lita sandals from Loeffler Randall. Their entire spring collection of shoes and bags is well worth lusting over (cute, cute, and cute). I’m totally crushing on these adorable citrus inspired shoes (and they come in a flat version too)!

Finally, while I love my basic gold iPhone case from J.Crew, I couldn’t help but be charmed by these two. Pineapples are always so cheerful and happy (and did you know they’re also a symbol of welcome and hospitality?), and this Kate Spade odometer case reminds me of cruising around in a Mini Cooper…preferably somewhere in the Mediterranean.

What are you loving lately?

    Love the concept of the solid perfume. Perfect for travelling! I’m finicky about smells though so I’ll have to get into a store to test first.

    That perfume bottle is gorgeous. Despite the smell, I’d buy it just to look nice on a vanity!

    As someone as obsessed with cars as fashion, I’ve definitely got my eye on that odometer case!

    I just returned the exact Everlane shirt pictured above. I have a few of their silk button downs but the fit of the silk tank top is not the same. I wear an XS in their tops & was swimming in the tank. It’s huge. If you’re on the bigger size I’d suggest getting it because the color is really pretty.

      I ordered the XS in the sleeveless tank and it fit me really well. I think the fit is supposed to be more loose, drapey and relaxed. The sleeveless button downs I have from them in silk are certainly a bit more fitted and tailored!

    What a great collection of items! I love my diptyque candles (a go to guilty pleasure to splurge on every once and a while) so I am so intrigued by your solid perfume. I have never used a solid perfume, have you been happy with how it compares to the typical spray versions of perfume? It sounds like it is a great way to bring your perfume on the go!

    I am right there with you about loving all the silk options Everlane has come out with as of late! I feel like they are truly fabulous quality pieces, and with a much more manageable price tag.
