Spring Purchases – 2016

Since the weather has already been reaching the 70s here in the Bay Area, I’ve been doing some advanced spring shopping. Here are some of my keepers for the upcoming season…please share what you’re planning on adding!

Figue Tuk Tuk Detail

Figue “Tuk Tuk” Tote. I have a thing for summer totes – they’re usually lightweight, less expensive, and a great accessory to have more fun with (I’m still searching for the perfect woven straw bag, by the way). I’m hopelessly attracted to anything that features pom poms, and had been considering one of these Figue “Tuk Tuk” style bags for the longest time. I finally decided to pull the trigger a few months ago to have a fun tote for spring/summer, and I love it! It’s very well designed, and I love all the little details and the slight hippie vibe. There’s a drawstring closure up top, so that you can keep your belongings more secure if you want, and also an inside zip pocket. So more functional than just your usual totally open woven beach tote.

Figue Tuk Tuk Tote

My specific pattern is now sold out, but I actually prefer this season’s version even more (I’m a sucker for nautical). If I’d been able to trust myself with an all white tote, I probably would have picked up this “Heidi” model instead.

Also, for a much more affordable and fun straw bag for summer, I’d check out Eliza Gran’s totes. Very fun!

PS – I just found this “Evil Eye” version of the Tuk Tuk on sale for 40% off!  Continue Reading

Everyday Jewelry

I love jewelry – and every day I feel a little “off” unless I have some on. That being said, I haven’t worn a lot of my favorite pieces since baby came along. My Alhambra necklace, for example, is taking…

1. I used to place orders at J.Crew all the time, but it’s probably been more than a year since my last one. My local store is always empty too – but there’s actually a lot of great basics…

Spring Event Dresses – Under $200

For the last five or so years, I’ve either had a bunch of weddings to go to, or virtually none. Case in point – last year, we had almost zero, and suddenly this year, we have a bunch. My usual…

Weekend Update

1. Did you all know that Olivia Palermo launched her own capsule collection of clothing, with Nordstrom? I’m normally fairly leery of celebrity clothing collaborations, but I really think Palermo is so stylish and had to check out the…

Life With Baby – Six Months

I last checked in on how life was going, post baby, about five months ago. Since its been about six months now since baby Feather’s arrival, I thought I’d do another update on life with baby. Thank you all by…
