Lovely Things: Mother’s Day Edition

Hello! Here is a new installment of LOVELY THINGS and, this week, I decided to give it a loose Mother’s Day theme with a bunch of things that I think my mom friends, you, your moms, and your grannies might like to be gifted. There are lots of brick and mortar shops here if you live locally in Portland. Go shop around! And, as always, sending out hugs to everyone who has a hard time on this celebratory day — whatever the reason. Life can feel pretty loaded — you aren’t alone. Take care of yourself and take it easy. Lots of love to all my ladies who are raising the coolest kids — I’m so happy to get to see it all happen and to know your amazing babes. More LOVELY THINGS.

Lovely Things #12

YAY! Lookie! Here’s a new Lovely Things roundup. I don’t see that much of a common thread through it besides muddy rose hues, metallics, shine, and fleurs. I’m so excited about spring. Winter has felt dreadfully long this year for a lot of reasons personal, political, and also with our muddy, somber weather. Here’s to sunshine, birds tweeting, and flowers popping up. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

This lovely art print is how the season feels right now — flowers peeking around the corner.

I’m not usually really into purple, but I’m feelin’ this cute jacket.

Currie always has an amazing selection of ceramics in her shop.

I’ve been thinking about this one time we got all the things at Maurice — need to go back SOON!

I’m glad Elise restocked these lovely Matisse-inspired totes!

Oh, just some sweet pink new school wedge clogs. Love them in black, too!

Oooh la la! I adore this little pink moon wallet and its shiny zipper.

Hello there — you pretty mother of pearl modern signet ring.

This gauze-y top, in its mocha-taupe-lavender-pink hue, looks like a summer staple.

There’s something sweet and very modern Jane Birkin about this top and high-waisted jeans.

A pretty salmon softshine top that gives a big ol’ nod to vintage slips. And it comes in 5 colors!

Yeah. This sculptural dirty blush clutch is a vision with that marble fastener.

Jessica kills it every season and her new spring shoe collection is beautiful.

I’m really into this double-breasted golden metallic jacket. It would be so cute over a dress or with jeans.

A brass snake? A squiggle? Love these lightweight brass earrings!

Two shirts in one! This simple cotton wrap top can tie in back or front.

This whole new collection is beautiful. Shout out to that perfect orange-leaning red shade!

This scarf speaks for itself. Vive La Resistance!

I really want to get my nose on this fancy stromboli candle and my hands on that gorgeous ceramic jar it comes in.

I need a truckload of tulips and daffs, please. Mine are all late to the spring party.

Lovely Things #11

Lovely Things #9

Lookie here! It’s another Lovely Things post in less than one month. I almost made my Cool Summer Drink Recipes post a Lovely Things roundup, but decided I’ll keep these posts more varied for things that I feature.
