Still We Rise

YES!! We need more of this! So excited about the Still We Rise Auction over on instagram to benefit ACLU, RAICES, and Texas Civil Rights Project. It’s often hard to know how to help when you are overwhelmed with anxiety and too much bad news. Lindsay’s Still We Rise auctions are making it really simple and a beautiful process that also brings wonderful artists and designers into view. You can bid now through Monday, July 9! ♥

There are a few days left Here is a handy list auction FAQs to look over. Get a cup of something good and come BID ON THESE BEAUTIES and fight for individuals and families at the border seeking asylum and searching for their babies that were snatched by the increasingly heartless Trump White House Republicans.

Here are a just few of my fave auction and there are SO MANY GOOD THINGS

The Office of Angela Scott

I’ve been quite taken with the great shoes from The Office of Angela Scott lately, so I’ve rounded up a bunch of my favorites below! They are such fun, nostalgic, modern classics to wear over and over again for years to come. Angela’s designs are all lovely, but I’d say my top three loves are: Mr. Evans Black Oxfords, the Mr. Winters Metallic Wingtip Oxfords, and the Mr. Smith Nude Stripe Oxfords — I just think I’d wear these styles the most. I linked to my faves below, but you can find even more styles HERE, HERE, and HERE.

Nili Lotan

I’ve been loving a lot of the Nili Lotan closet staples from her spring collection. So much linen, cotton, and silk! My personal faves are ALL of the Aria Jumpsuits (bone, green & black!), the Midnight Wash Boyfriend Jeans, the Bone Linen Luna Pants (and in Army and Mustard), the Silk Paris Pants, the Carpenter Shorts, the Mustard Cambre Jacket, the Felix Top, the Fulton Shirt, and the Dark Floral Silk Cami Dress (!!!). Everything is made in the USA and her shop is a natural fibers paradise. Also, a lot of her styles are oversized, so a lot of the designs may accommodate sizes beyond their numbers.

I also think the Vintage Ivory Long Slip Dress and the Vintage Ivory Short Silk Slip Dress would both be sweet wedding dresses. Maybe long for ceremony and short for reception would work well for some of you no fuss, elegant ladies out there. The other silk dresses would be lovely for bridesmaids, too! Check out the Nili Lotan Sale Section, too!! It’s wildly good and sometimes they do sale on sale. Everything is linked below — more HERE.

Lovely Things #14

HEY HEY! Here’s a new Lovely Things roundup! I think the common thread is probably sunshine, ease, and playfulness. With everything going on right now, my favorite self-care is anything to escape the overwhelm for a little while with my peeps. I’m tending to my roses later today (yes, my roses are also my peeps! hahaha) and going strawberry picking with a good friend tomorrow, so I’m on the right track! How about you? Find more LOVELY THINGS.

This flower dress and the milky citrus sunnies are super cute.

This yellow plastic jacket looks super cute with the rest of the outfit.

I love this new lounge gown and all of Emily’s new loungewear collection!

I really love the vintage glamour vibe of these classic sandals.

Such a sweet shot! Love this linen dolman sleeve top and perfect BB straw hat.

Yes to that striped linen jacket and the pretty eyelet dress!

A striped gauze caftan would be good for summer! It’s a sweet beach coverup, too.

So cute. These Crop de la Crop tops are so good all in a row.

I love all these braided leather totes so much. The pink and striped linings are super smart.

Love these straight white jeans and they’re a great price.

SO GOOD. There’s the perforated hoops and the perforated disc earrings — both beauties.

Such amazing stacks of Rebecca’s rings. All the jeeeeewels… ♥

Uuuuhhh… jasmine flower infused vodka? Yes, please.

I’d like to try all of Kristel’s stunning flowery creations.

Wrap it up! I daydream about all these vintage pieces — especially this and this.
