Hi, hi, hi! Happy Tuesday! Hope that you are enjoying this week so far. I am. I think. It’s a strange week for me. My last week of the only work life I’ve ever known. Big, huge, change is coming my way in 2018. But for now. I’m soaking in all the people, the love + warmth, the business + product, the learning and the memories this place has so graciously sent my way all these years. Burning these gifts in my brain and my heart to carry with me as I close this chapter and turn the page.
For now. Three good things to share with you.
Domino is speculating that lilac is the new millenial pink, yay, yay, yay! I am dreaming of ALL the ways to bring this color into my home + closet. IMO, it’s just as crushable as a soft pink, yet a little more unexpectedly sophisticated. Currently lilac-crushing on these sneakers, this rug and this vintage painting.
Tis the season for parties, hosting and endless cheese boards. As a dairy minimalist, I was excited to see a fresh take on this appetizer favorite. I’ll be perfecting my non-cheese cheese board starting this weekend – hoping mine tastes and looks as amazing as the inspiration! I love pairing wood + vintage inspired ceramics for a cozy, crafted feel. A few entertaining goodies I’ve been eyeing this season: these trays are to-die-for, from Magnolia’s Heart + Hand line at target this wood board and divided bowl are my top picks. I’d mix any of these with vintage Russel Wright small plates for the win!
J. Crew is having a big sale. 40% off + an additional 10% off…perfect for those gifts you still need to cross off your list, or anything you might need for you this holiday season. My top three: classic pajamas for you, your mom, BFF; this rich red coat to cozy up the season; and these velvet hair ties are the grown up way to ponytail. For little her: these slippers, party skirt and cutie tee shirt. For him: this hat, cool crewneck and even cooler shades.
Bye, bye, bye!
