Mary Claret by Andie Day

I came across these pretty Mary Claret spring designs the other day while down a linen rabbit hole and thought they were so sweet. Andie Day, a costume designer for film and live performance, lives and produces her line in Texas and tries to keep her footprint small with natural fibers and buying end of run linen when possible. I especially love her Peach Linen Wrap Midi Skirtand I love the Mini version of it. Her wrap skirts would look so good with all the bodysuits coming out right now for that lovely off-duty ballerina or modern dance look. They’d also be beautiful with a more light and billowy top tucked in. I also love the Mint Linen Wrap Midi Skirt (and the mini mint), and the Deep Turquoise Linen Wrap Midi Skirt (and mini turquoise). I think the Linen Gauze Traveler Hoodie would be fantastic for a beach coverup (that big front pocket!) and it also comes as an Oatmeal Linen Hoodie and a Sky Linen Hoodie. She’s also making dreamy linen sleep sets in four colors! More HERE.

Mara Hoffman

I’ve been getting a bit lost in the cheerful world of Mara Hoffman lately. Her spring collection is an expansive, colorful jungle to wander through. There are so many pieces with so many color ways — the number of wonderful dresses is amazing in itself. Some of my favorites are the Moderna Dune Tunic Dress, the Pastel Stripe Drop Waist Dress, the Xylophone White Button Up Dress, the Strapless Cutout Dresses, the White Embroidered Dress, the One Shoulder Rainbow Watercolor Dress, the Yellow Linen Mini Slip Dress, the Xylophone Black One Shoulder Ruffle Dress, the Lavender One Shoulder Ruffle Dress, the Moderna Red Side Slit Tank Dress, the Lavender Linen Strapless Jumpsuit, the Colorful Patchwork Midi Skirt (with the Patchwork Cami Top), the Striped Henleys, the Black Linen Crop Top, and Black Button Side Culottes. Mara also makes a dizzying array of beautiful swimwear and coverups (yay for high-waisted bottoms and cute one piece suits!). More HERE.

Creatures of Comfort: Spring BTS

honey-kennedy-creatures-of-comfort-bts-ss-2017-01

Sometimes my favorite photographs for collections are the the behind the scenes shots before and after runway shows. I love these backstage photos for the Creatures of Comfort Spring/Summer 2017 show. The Pink Carmen Seersucker Dots Skirt at the bottom paired with the Raoul Silk Roses Top is stunning. The first photo with the Chili Dots Robbie Dress and the raised belt is gorgeous. I also love the Monarch Silk Linen Dress, the Pink Block Seersucker Dots Dress, the Creation Green Floral Silk Dress, the Raina Silk Linen Dress, the Pink Tulum Seersucker Dots Top, the Fuchsia Pia Otomi Plisse Top, the Green Hero Topshine Top (like vintage pjs!) and the Toby Cotton Broadcloth Top.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-model-seated-vogue-1948-by-john-rawlings

Happiest Friday to you, friends! I’m happy to see my garden starting to slowly come alive and color peeking out here and there. I hope to get my hands in the dirt this weekend, but we are also deep in puppy training mode and need to take our Baby Audrey out and about to help her shyness and socialization. I’m also hoping to eat yummy vegan Chinese food, drink a lot of tea, bake something sweet, wander the Portland Nursery, read a book from my stack, and watch some BBC crime. Wishing you a fantastic weekend! xx Jen
