ABLE

Bone has been my favorite color this season. I know this because I suddenly own three pairs of bone-colored shoes & continue to purchase bone-colored linen on a weekly thrifting basis. I definitely wouldn’t say no taking this bag to the farmers market, to the beach or out for a day of errands.

Very into weird earrings lately. Uniquely shaped jewelry has been taking over & I’m here for it.

REFORMATION

Ref’s new shoe line is full of 90s nostalgia, much like the butterfly hair-clip / puka shell / popcorn top / bermuda-length spandex short trends that have all come back to haunt us this summer.

This silhouette! So many print options, too.

GIRLFRIEND COLLECTIVE

This sports bra. Most everything they release consists of a spot-on muted color & a unique + functional shape.

Bike shorts! In apricot! Girlfriend recycles water bottles to make their clothing — very obsessed. + they feature inclusive sizing.


 
 

SEVEN SISTERS

Paloma Wool is a brand that I can’t quite formulate words for — I just love all that they do so much. They’re incredibly collaborative, innovative, trend-setting but timeless. One of my favorite shops to stop into in Portland carries this amazing bag from them.

The recipe for perfect earrings this Summer: oversized, acetate, circular, floral. These somehow tap into everything that will one day be nostalgic about Summer of 2019.


 
 

SEZANE

Had to have a hard conversation with myself around the reality that there are only so many white dresses one individual can own & wear as infrequently as I do. So I did not get this dress. But can somebody please? It’s the dreamiest fairytale dress. Please report back if you do.

This v-neck gingham suit?! Send help. Thought I would never be into gingham but this about does it for me.

CONNECTED GOODS

A locally-based brand with ethically made goods. Can’t say enough good about the quality craftsmanship & product carried by Connected Goods. This hanging basket is perfect.

Just take a look across their entire website & fall in love. Really taken by the simplicity in their designs.

As always, please only purchase as needed & consider the impact of what you’re buying. It’s so helpful for me to create a wishlist in my notes & check back in on pieces over the course of a couple weeks, & I usually end up realizing that an item isn’t essential. As consumers, it’s imminent that brands we’re supporting are helping to better the earth + not harm it & each of these brands embody those beliefs! xx
