Recent Acquisitions

First off, I’m over the moon to have been included in the new JessLC lookbook for her new line of prints, along with Mackenzie Horan, Liz Schneider, Bryn Dunn, Danielle Moss and Alaina Kaczmarski of The Everygirl, and Morgan Georgie and Carrie Kiefer of Ampersand Design Studio! I chose “Be Present” as it is perfect for me at this time in my life…reprioritizing and realizations. Go check out the entire collection, and find which print speaks to you!

When I sent the photos off, it dawned on me how much RED I’ve been acquiring lately! With my post two weeks ago on “how to wear red jeans” apparently I can’t get enough.

Whether a little or a lot, gotta have the red!

1. StyleMint striped tee, $29.99* 2. Cambridge satchel, $165 3. StyleMint polka dot tee, $29.99* 4. JewelMint bangle, $29.99* 5. Joie ‘Eleanor’ blouse, $198 6. Bauble Bar cabochon studs, $26 7. JBrand ‘Zoey’ skinnies, $224 8. DVF ‘Johnseen’ jumpsuit, $498 9. J.Crew ‘Sophia’ sunglasses, $128 10. Chinti + Parker dress, $160 11. Tory Burch ‘Eddie’ flats, $178 12. Zara sandals, $129

I think RED may be my go-to hue for the season. What’s yours?

    I love the Be Present print – how cool! And I agree with red – there always seems to be a lot of it in my closet, esp red stripes!

    I just read about the prints on Breakfast at Toast and my favorite is the “Be present” print, it’s what we, mothers, always have to keep in mind for our kids ;)

    What do I NOT love about this post??? You gorgeous girl, you. And of course anything Morgan & Carrie are a part of is nothing short of amazing. I need several of those babies on my walls. I’m not big into red, but this post says I should be! ox

    You look awesome! I think your black handbag is Marc by Marc Jacobs, is that right? Which one? I’ve been eyeing some of his bags online, but seeing you holding makes me want to take the plunge.

    Thank you so, so much not only for participating in the lookbook, but for sharing such beautiful photos! I’m smitten with you and your daughter. And to see Be Present on such a beautiful wall in your home makes my heart beat so fast!

    Thank you. Seriously.

    Ah, I just love this post! Such a fun collaboration with talented people!!

    Love the pic of you and your daughter, just precious. Be Present, would be my choice of print too, always a struggle.
    I have never done much red but you pull it off beautifully. I tend to live in neutrals but I do have a red clutch, that counts. Still coveting your MJ bag…

    I don’t naturally gravitate towards red but you’re convincing me to give it a go. We have similar coloring and it looks fantastic on you!!
    Especially loving that striped tee for summer!
