I love the linen garments and housewares from Knock Knock Linen. UK designers Egle and Gintaras make their lovely pieces with high quality linen from their home country, Lithuania. It’s inspiring how passionate Knock Knock is about linen, “Our products use traditional and sustainable materials that our grandmothers use to make clothes, towels and kitchen textiles with. At the same time, they have a modern design.” All the linen clothing is dreamy and they make gorgeous bedding, kitchen and table linens and bath towels. I want everything! Linen is the best — so utilitarian and versatile, but still elegant. More HERE.

Lovely Houston-based label Evens by Kate de Para has a new collection out! I love that Kate is once again using beautiful natural textiles and was inspired to create “the color and texture of the hill country”. My favorites are the pretty new Silk Smock, washed silk Opening Blouse, linen Button Back Smock, chambray Audrey Smock, washed silk Mica Midi Dress and wool Melody Coat. Her bags are stunning too! My favorite is still the Splatter Tote and the Grey Tote is beautiful too. More HERE.

HAPPY FRIDAY! Have a wonderful weekend, friends! I am going to be cleaning the house in a “take no prisoners” fashion in order to do a massive purge of stuff. The idea of it all is pretty daunting, but I know that when fall rolls in it is going to feel REALLY good to be out with the old and more organized. Also, with more space for the new (insert clenched teeth emoji). Have fun out there — I hope your weekend isn’t just a view of a musty basement! xo Jen

My friends at Bon just launched a new online shop and a dreamy new summer lookbook to celebrate. Mother-daughter duo Bonnie and Crystal Flynt own Bon and do a wonderful job stocking lovely things you want to see in your home or wear 5 days a week. I have a feeling that if I ever make it to their brick-and-mortar in Tucson I will just happily empty my entire bank balance into their hands. My current shop faves are the sweet gathered striped skirt, Moroccan straw hats, straw bags, polka dot pillowcases, large striped linen towel and the colorful Bolivian frazada. More HERE.
