Good morning! I hope this week is treating you well! I wanted to pop in to say hi and share a few new things I have been loving as of late. It’s been a gloomy couple of weeks in the city (June gloom is tardy) but I finally feel settled back into a good rhythm with work. Thankful for downtime to get inspired, little breaks of sunshine (escaping the city when we can), and a few other things brightening the spirit…

Polo Ralph Lauren Hat — new hat in from Amazon and I’ve been wearing it non-stop! I want to get the ‘Carson’ blue (almost denim) color, too!

& Other Stories Top — ah! I waited too long to share this, it was nowhere to be found on their site. I am putting together a big tops post though either this weekend or next week, so will try and track down some similar options (since a linen ruffle makes me quite happy).

Lucy Folk Bracelet — as you may know, I am a big fan of LF!  I shared this post two or so years ago, and while revisiting it (as I was updating older entries) I convinced myself I needed it. It’s a stretch bracelet and such a fun touch to summer outfits. Obsessed with so many of her pieces right now!

Laura Ashley Comforter — yep, it is already well worn into our lives and has been brought along on several outings since we got it last week! Love. Everyone needs a big fluffy comforter for outdoor sitting… it’s a game-changer.

And of course, a Saturday picnic hang essential… the Hugo spritz.

I got my first pair of Toteme jeans last year and fell in love. This light-wash pair just arrived and I’ve fallen deeper.

I started to collect Chanel nail polish at the beginning of the pandemic and have a handful of hues I love that are worthy to note!

LA Base Coat | Le Gel Top Coat | Ballerina (clear pink) | Organdi (mauve/nude) | Arancio Vibrante (the most perfect orangy red, my fave) | Vibration ( a beautiful berry hue) | and I just ordered Deepness for fall

My current book stack: The Mountain is You (reader recommended and I am loving it!) | Commonwealth | Light is the New Black — another reader recommendation, I finished a while ago but revisiting spots I’ve highlighted as I’ve needed a mood boost lately | So You Want to Talk About Race | On Writing (as I feel a bit rusty with writing blog posts and always trying to improve!)

More of this to come soon as I just went on a little shopping spree for new tops (lacking in that department) and summery things for a few upcoming local getaways. I shall report back!

Enjoy your day x

I just come across your blog the other day and to say I’m obsessed is an understatement! I went down the biggest rabbit hole reading all your older posts (lol). Excited to be a new reader! xx, Gabby
