My Top 5 Spring Finds

Indigo Linen Dress – I love this dress so much I almost don’t want to share. #selfish However, I’m pretty sure that if an article of clothing features both linen and the color indigo, I’m 100% in. This dress is so easy to wear and I am fully obsessed. Wearing it here.

Everlane Anorak – Spring dog walking coming through with this jacket! Super lightweight and perfect for those chilly mornings or evenings. I wear this constantly and bonus, it comes in 4 colors.

Kari Gran Lip Whip in Cora Gold – If you haven’t experienced a Lip Whip by Kari Gran, what are you waiting for? The texture of this lip product is so silky and hydrating and it tastes like peppermint. I think this particular color (a gorgeous pinkish coral) is the best of her 10+ shades. So lovely.

Steven Greece Slides – I just throw these on and go. These slides look great with all of my eleventy billion spring dresses.

Madewell Medium Canvas Tote – I am so in love with this canvas tote, but I haven’t pulled the trigger because I can’t decide on a color. Which one?! (psst – 20% off orders over $100 and 30% off orders over $200 until Monday, April 8th! with code SPEND2SAVE, although the transport totes are excluded. #nofair)

What are your spring must-haves?





Odds and Ends

1. Hey, I don’t care if people don’t like me, I just need a list of who and why not.

2. Do you think this hat will keep me shaded enough at the pool this summer? This one might be a touch more affordable, methinks.

3. Visas to visit Europe in 2021?

4. Hey! I’m a Contributing Editor for The Bleu. Check out my piece on embracing my grays here.

5. Social media during the teenage years freaks me out.

6. No one is using napkins anymore.

7. Once again, love Patagonia something fierce.

8. Bad diets are responsible for more deaths than smoking. Green is good, folks!

9. With all the dog walking, I’m getting serious about facial sunscreen. Might be hard to beat this one and this one, but I’m trying some other options that are being sent my way.

10. 7 ways to age well in 2019. A round-up of great ideas, if you’re into that kind of thing.

11. Canned wine. I guess I’m not totally against it…

Happy Friday! Spring has sprung and I AM HERE FOR IT.
