I have a real soft spot for shop owners/curators that also branch out and create their own line (my heart will always be with product). Steven Alan did just that and his namesake clothing line is a beautiful mix of simplicity and form. The SA shops are also still curated with unique designers that share a similar aesthetic and it is so easy to fall in love with each piece. Here are my top picks…
Poplin Dress // Copper Bowl // Myra Mule // Natural Tote // Triangle Earrings // Fringe Blanket // Copper Candleholder // Panel Dress // Felt Coaster // Shinola Notebook // Clare V. Clutch // Coffee Cup
I spent a day at home with the oh so lovely Elle, of Solly Baby, a few weeks back and we chatted about work, balance, design, inspiration, and motherhood while I put their wrap to use, lulling Archer right to sleep. You can check out the full interview on their blog today and I picked a few of my favorite images to share with you here…
It’s probably no surprise that Palm Springs is our favorite destination for a quick weekend getaway and we are heading there soon for our first mini vaca as a new family of 3! EEK. My bag is packed and here is hoping little A likes the desert as much as we do.

Rupe and I have yet to leave Archer with a sitter at night (bedtime is still a little unpredictable), but since he is starting to get a pretty good routine down and sleeping 7-8 hours in a row most nights (which I am scared to say out loud on the chance I might jinx it… #livingontheedge), a date night is on the horizon. And thanks to my post maternity shopping spree, I am wardrobe ready.
Pencil Skirt from Asos // Crop top from Asos, find similar here // Clutch by Clare Vivier // Black Pumps from J.Crew // Pinky Ring by L. Frank Jewelry (rupe’s sweet push present to me, which has Archer’s name engraved on the inside and is from the same jewelry designer that made our wedding bands and engagement ring)
First up is Need Supply Co. They have a brick & mortar store in Richmond Virginia, and I am a big fan of their online shop as well. They do such a great job of selecting items by unique designers and highlighting the well designed object. Above are my top picks from their current selection.
Lisbon Dress // Brass Age Bracelet // Avenue Shopper // Elizabeth Bikini Top // Tomorrow Bangle // Stone Dress // Faith Bikini Bottom // Ritual Necklace // French Press // Isla Heels // Bucket Bag // Long Bar Studs
It’s my favorite sale of the year… the Shopbop 25% off everything spring sale! It has been awhile since I have shopped for anything non-maternity related so I am EXTRA excited to use the sale to stock my closet for summer. Here are a few of my spring sale must haves that I snatched up in my buying frenzy. I may have gone a little crazy with so many crop tops but I have been missing out on them for the last 9 months and as I thoughtfully explained to Rupe, I am just trying to reach my crop top quota, of course.
The sale only lasts from April 7 – 9th so get a move on!
Chambray Dress by Soft Joie // Gladiator Sandals by Schutz // Crop Top & Midi Eyelet Skirt by Zinke // Lauren Bracelet by Jason Wu // One-Piece Suit by Mara Hoffman // Peach Satchel by Phillip Lim // Jumpsuit by Kamali Kulture // Fringe Clutch by Rebecca Minkoff // Crop Top by Mason by Michelle Mason // Tassel Sandals by Loeffler Randall // Champray Crop Top by Loup // Arrow Ring by Shashi
Rupe got me this purdy skirt for my birthday, which he pulled from my “I want” pinterest board (such a handy thing for husbands, that pinterest), and of course I got all dressed up to sit around at home and take care of a newborn. The full midi silhouette does kinda scream 50’s housewife after all right? So really I am just doing my part to fall into my new role.
Ok but seriously, I adore this skirt and will cherish these photos as our first family portraits. xo
