Improbable but true

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 3.39.59 PM

Occasionally I surprise myself by liking something that feels stunningly far out of my wheelhouse, and right now that thing would be rainbow stripes. This rug, for instance, would probably look completely out of place in my home, but it delights me nevertheless.

If the colors were brighter on this top, it’s be altogether too overwhelming, but in washed-out hues it’s exactly right.

Happiest picnic blanket ever.

Everything about this shirt is totally up my alley: the killer color combo, the excellent star pattern, the slouchy-but-not-too-boxy cut. I keep going to Net A Porter just to stare at it.

Tuesday trifecta

Although the following clutches are in subdued tones, they’re all satisfyingly loud enough to be excellent lazy girl’s styling tools. First up: a good option if you like the idea of something statement-y but at the same time don’t want to make too crazy-big a statement.

This studded option is quite elegant, if you can use the word “elegant” to describe a studded bag.

A blue(ish) and black leopard print is just too far up my alley not to include here.

Cheap and chic of the week

crew espadrille

I very much like a flat slip-on espadrille for summer, but I very much dislike spending a lot on them, because by the season’s end they are—no matter how fancy the brand—inevitably trashed. And really, there are so many cute, inexpensive options out there that you don’t ever have to spend a fortune. This light denim pair by Soludos feels like it would be seriously versatile.

print espadrille

I don’t usually like wearing prints on my feet, but this is almost too cheery and adorable, and the price is seriously right.

These, at $80, are the priciest of the bunch, but they’re so damn stylish in the leather.

Dresses with grown-up hemlines, spring edition

Screen Shot 2016-05-11 at 3.45.22 PM

The theme this time around—and I didn’t realize I even had a theme until I took a look at all of these dresses together—is ease and comfort and a certain throw-it-on-and-go appeal. And isn’t that we’re all looking for in a dress as the weather turns warmer? Let’s start with the one I covet most intensely: this zebra-print is so good and somehow not-too-overwhelming, and I love the neckline—so graceful.

You know how I like a dark floral.

Just a really flattering shape—loose, but with enough definition not to come off too bulky.

twist front dress

This gauzy twist front dress is idling in my shopping cart even as I type. It looks so breezy, and drapes just right.

zara denim

Shirtdresses can be so unforgiving, but this one is so excellently flowy.

combo dress

Pre-styled for your convenience: this sweater-and-skirt combo dress.
