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?

Happy Thursday! I got home from Texas last night and though it’s been a fun few days, the rest of the week will be jam packed with trying to get back into the groove and meeting a couple deadlines. No better time to put together a quick post on a few random things I’ve bookmarked and been wanting to share…

BaubleBar and Nordstrom are doing an amazing collaboration together — have you seen this yet? It’s all the glitz and glam you’ve come to expect from BaubleBar, with lots of bright, happy colors that are perfect for spring (and of course, great prices). The earrings in this collection are especially lovely…now more than ever, I’m wishing I had pierced ears.

Twenty Five Bedford is a new-to-me start-up that offers a beautiful collection of simple, chic, and mix-and-matchable workwear pieces. I’m in love with the colors they’ve used in their first collection! While the prices aren’t dirt cheap, they’re definitely no more than a lot of other retail brands, and I love how compatible all the items are together. Plus, as they say, you spend 80% of your day in these clothes…might as well look great! I wanted to be sure and share this for all you gals who are on the lookout for good workwear. Were I working in a traditional office, I’d totally top off my Twenty Five Bedford look with this little Zara bag. The woven tote is perfect for warmer weather!

Next: in my last French class, I got introduced to Belgian singer-songwriter Stromae. His most recent album, Racine Carrée, has been on repeat around here. The mix of music is super diverse — dance beats, pop, afro-latin infused sounds — but whether you speak French or not, I think you’ll like it. Bonus points if you figure out which song is a critique of social media. Here’s a link to the album on Spotify (I hope I did that right — power users, correct me if not!).

Finally, two purely pretty things. I saw this Giorgio Armani liquid blush in a magazine and was super intrigued. Natural product? Oh, definitely not. But the packaging is really beautiful and fun, and I love the warm tones the blush comes in. It’s a beauty product that really is a total luxury. And, I bookmarked these sandals from Club Monaco. I love the mix of slate gray and minty green. They’ll put a spring in your step for sure!

This post is the result of having way too much fun (read: margaritas) at Hitha’s place on Saturday night. When you make margs, play games, have dance parties, and also watch random home movies until well past midnight on Saturday, as a general rule of thumb, your Sunday is spent on the couch in pajamas, watching House of Cards and surfing the Internet while you re-hydrate and give your body a break. Feel me?

Nevertheless, I had so much fun discovering all these little items. The weather in New York over the weekend felt practically like summer — or maybe that’s just what 55 degrees feels like when you’ve gotten used to 20. Because of it, I had a definite kick in my step and found myself drawn to items that reminded me of the sea and warm, breezy vacations. This bikini and this blue floral one from Anthropologie particularly caught my eye, as did these lovely sandals (I really love the dusty tone in them, especially with the bright gold accent!). Last week I popped into Gracious Home, a local home, hardware, and decor shop here on the Upper East Side, and spent some time admiring their gorgeous dinnerware and table linens. I was browsing their site yesterday to price check a few, and instead happened upon these gorgeous hand-painted plates from Oscar de la Renta. Aren’t they stunning? Lastly, I’ve been taking stock of my loungewear and pajama situation at home, and it’s somewhat dire. Thing is, I hate sleeping in pants of any kind (too hot…and how can anyone stand how they get all twisted as you move around?), so this little sleep set may be just the ticket. Isn’t it adorable? I’ve heard such great things about Eberjey, too!

Did you do anything fun this weekend? And did you celebrate National Margarita Day?
