It’s been a helluva week. Crazy in some good ways and crazy in some very unfortunate ways. Come on, 2021. Be better.
Here are a few items that I added to my cart this week. Surprise, surprise… everything is black. Black never goes out of style.
I cannot wait for my matte black candle to arrive in the mail. And, I am pretty stoked about my GG sneakers.
I’ll leave you with just one note before I get to the “good stuff.”
Time goes way too fast. Way, way …. way… too fast. So, please, remember to say I love you as often as possible for the people you really truly love.
I love you, Grand Daddy Akin. Thanks for all the laughs, shared smoked cheddar cheese with rice crackers and cashews, sharing your home with me, and for making the best gin and tonics in the entire world.
My Add to Cart List – February 2021
1) Baies/Berries Candle
What it is: A three-wick scented candle designed in partnership with Virebent, a renowned porcelain manufacturer.
Fragrance story: Made entirely by hand, the Baies candle recalls a bouquet of roses and blackcurrant leaves. It is presented in an earthenware vessel, which was chosen for its rustic and artisanal character, giving body and life to the brand’s iconic oval shape.
All you need is love and this versatile cotton-twill pouch printed with Burberry’s logo and the one word that unites us all.
3) BB Dakota Girl Next Door Sweater
I bought this sweater at a boutique in Ococonomoc a few weekends ago and I’ve worn as many times as socially acceptable in one week. A fitted ribbed hem and cuffs add shape to a versatile sweater that will take you effortlessly from work meetings to a dinner with friends.
4) Valentino Garavani Mini Rockstud Leather Envelope Crossbody
Signature polished rockstuds outline the envelope silhouette of a grainy-calfskin crossbody suspended from a chain-link strap and sized for just-essentials use. I love the magnetic snap closure.
5) Golden Goose Super-Star Low Sneaker
I got these!!! I am so in love! Caleb did not “understand” the wear and tear scuffing of Golden Goose, but he actually didn’t mind these, so I took that as the green light to go ahead and buy them.
These Golden Goose sneakers are expertly scuffed for a street-savvy look straight out of the box, the Italian brand’s signature low-top sneaker is as comfortable as it is cool. The loopy terry lining makes it easy to wear even with bare feet.
6) MCM Stark 40 Visetos Mix Backpack
Cognac and black… my two favorite colors for clothing and accessories. Make a statement while carrying what you need for the day with this cool tricolor backpack crafted from monogrammed coated canvas.
7) Spanx Faux Leather Leggings
These best-selling faux-leather leggings are a must-have staple for your closet. The signature Power Waistband and glossy finish create a chic, flattering look for any occasion, and no center seam means a streamlined, confidence-boosting silhouette.
8) Marc Jacobs Snapshot Crossbody Bag
An oversize double-J logo gleams from a multicolor bag you can carry as a clutch or sling over your shoulder with the optional crossbody guitar strap.
9) Not Your Baby Faux Suede Moto Jacket
Classic moto details supply this supple faux-suede jacket with biker charm.
10) Liv Sneaker Michael Kors
A trend-forward sneaker with a stacked sole mixes mesh and leather with metallic trims, making it perfect for amping up your street-style game.
11) We the Free by Free People Perry Hooded Denim Jacket with Faux Shearling Trim
Destined to be your new favorite, this denim jacket features cool-worthy updates like the boxy, cropped length and the faux-shearling and faux-suede trim.
