Happy Friday, beautiful friends!! I am so excited for this weekend and for the fact that I finally have this bag!! I have been dreaming of buying a woven Bottega Veneta bag since last summer, but just couldn’t bring myself to spend more than $3,000!! on one. Luckily, I found a similar style on Amazon for 1 percent of the price of the real thing!! That’s right, this stunner is only $34! It comes in a bunch of colors, but I like this off-white color for summer.
This bag pairs perfectly with my new Banjanan dress that I’m wearing out for dinner tonight with my hubs! I am obsessed with this emerging brand. Caroline Weller, the founder and designer, worked on the design teams of Calvin Klein and J. Crew before moving to India and creating the bright, bold and beautiful, Banjanan. I’m wearing the Iris dress tonight and it is dreamy to say the least!
I think we all know by now that it is important to vote (major election year!!) so why not remind others in a cute way with this adorable Tory Burch T-shirt? I love it and plan to wear it even beyond the presidential election in November. I’m sure you’ve all seen this amazing lavender dress, by now, but if you haven’t, make sure you get one! It is the ultimate summer dress and SO feminine, I just love it!
I am also living for sets this year and I am so in love with the leopard print set by Ganni!! It is precious together or separately. I would definitely wear a white t-shirt with the shorts or black skinny jeans with the top. I would also love to pair it with these Chanel slides! Speaking of sets…who else loves a classic pajama set?! I sure do! I love this floral set by Ann Taylor and I love the price even more…it’s under $30!! Would be great for yourself or as a gift for a loved one.
I have been using the Beautybio eye patches almost every day this month. I love putting them in the refrigerator in the morning and then putting them on in the afternoon when they are chilled, it is truly so lovely. They are $40 for a pack of 15 patches and I know that seems high compared to Patchology, but when you break it down per pair, these are the cheaper option and I think they are a better product overall.
As I mentioned yesterday, I have been doing Baye Tilson’s yoga classes on Youtube and love them so much!
The Levi 501 Skinny jeans have kind of a cult following and for good reason. These jeans are perfect for lounging around the house, but in a *slightly* put together way. They are also a little bit thicker than your average jean so they are very forgiving which is good for all of us right now. I have been wearing these at least two or three days each week and love them.
I ordered the J.crew Juliette Collarless blazer in white the other day and am so excited to get it! I bought this blazer last year in an olive green color and it was perfect to wear to the office or out to dinner.
Many of you might remember the blazer was popularized by Meghan Markle last summer when she wore the grey version to the US Open. After that, it was backordered for months, but you can now get it in a few colors for $58!! I plan on wearing this all summer with dresses or with white jeans and a tee. I’ve learned that this style runs big so I would recommend sizing down from your true size.
I also highly recommend the Nars Afterglow Lip Balm. I probably use chapstick and lip gloss too much but I HATE having chapped lips. This lip balm is the perfect blend for me because it is hydrating and provides a little pop of color. I chose the color “Fast Lane” and it compliments my olive skin tone really well.
What did you think of the picks this week? Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorites are!
