Poplin PJs

It’s been a while since I last talked about Poplin Homewear and their lovely handmade pajamas, but they’ve been on my mind again lately and a lot of their designs are on sale. This summer there will be many pitchers of iced tea, strategically placed fans and light cotton pjs — our new house is an oven! Not that there is anything wrong with a t-shirt and undies or sleeping in the nude, but I’d really like to up my pj game because there’s just something I love about having comfy clothing made specifically for sleeping and lounging. Also, we get a lot of houseguests and it’s nice to be able to hop out of bed to go make coffee for them without showing them my butt. My favorites from Poplin right now are the Ima Morning Robe, the Celia Short Jumpsuit, the cute Lulia Nightdress, the Una Long Shirt and the Nori Striped Bodysuit looks fantastic. More HERE and you can also find Poplin on Etsy.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-regina-relang-elsa-martinelli-in-a-dress-by-la-boutique-santangelo-ischia-1954

HAPPY FRIDAY! I hope you have some lovely days ahead this weekend. Today I will be having a day of shopping and eating mediocre Mexican food in the suburbs with my girls, Megan and Teresa, and I’m SO looking forward to it. This weekend is all about getting organized and set up for family coming next week and to make things extra fun — our car is in the shop. I also need to tackle the basement. For real this time. I procrastinated last week to the point of not doing anything I wanted to get done down there, so now I have to pay the piper when I really just want to putz in the garden and read. Have a wonderful time out there! I hope you get distracted by flowers and neglect your own chores in favor of relaxing! xo Jen

A highly popular shopping destination, Ink & Peat is the sort of store that makes your friends exclaim, “I love that place!”, whenever you mention it. In fact, I arrived for my visit just before opening and found that I wasn’t the only person waiting to get inside. Within twenty minutes, the store was packed with people admiring the jewelry, ceramics, cookbooks, skincare and fragrances, pillows, throws, children’s books and toys, stationary, original art, totes, and more. Ink & Peat has long been a personal favorite and my go-to whenever I need a sure to please gift for friends or family.

Fail Jewelry

The new Fail jewelry collection for spring by Austin-based designer Christine Fail is stunning. My favorite thing about this collection is that a lot of the pieces have a texture to them that looks like when you see something shiny glistening underwater on a sunny day — maybe a lost coin you find while swimming in a lake or a chest of buried treasure in the sea. I have to agree with her that the stars of the show are the shale bracelets — the beauty of the stacking possibilities is endless. My other favorites from Christine’s new collection are the shale collar necklace, the shale long necklace, the basalt necklace, the large shale earrings and the shale rings. I’m also still in love with Fail’s classic elongated bastet hoop earrings and her one-of-a-kind custom ceremony rings are phenomenal. More HERE.

Cheryl Humphreys

I’ve been really enjoying these works by artist Cheryl Humphreys. Sometimes it feels like so much art, fashion and general perspective has become so earnest and wholesome. It’s so refreshing to see some work that has is impeccably conceived, executed and edited, but still tongue-in-cheek. I’m such a fan! I think my favorites are from her portfolio selection called ‘Narrative’ — a lot of the pieces were in Humphreys’ California Dreaming group exhibition at Paul Loya Gallery and part of an editorial for Opening Ceremony. You can see more of Cheryl Humphreys’ work HERE and shop a bit of her amazing artwork HERE.
