As I was putting together this post, I was pleased at how minimally I shopped in March — only to realize that it’s because my other orders haven’t yet arrived! (Or just got lost in the mail entirely, as was the case of an Old Navy order that included the pink now-sold-out blouse in this post.) The one I’m most excited about is this lamp! It’s either going to serve as an entry lamp, or I’ll spring for a second and use them as our bedside lamps. Either way, I can’t wait for it to arrive!
IN THE WARDROBE
See all of this year’s sartorial additions here.
- J.Crew ‘Seaside’ linen-blend short in desert sand – I bought a pair of these last year in loden green and they became my most-worn shorts last summer. They have a three-inch inseam, but they don’t seem that short since they’re meant to have a relaxed fit.
- Anthropologie ‘Ruth’ mini sweater dress – This dress is so flattering! It has a stretchy nipped-in waist that you can adjust to the most flattering part of your body and it has great movement. It’s as cute with sneakers as it is with ballet flats. It’ll definitely become a workplace staple once offices reopen. I found that it ran true to size.
- Target pajama set – I don’t normally add pajamas to these posts, but these are too cute not to mention. They’re just $20 and give Soma’s Cool Nights collection a run for its money. Plus, the shorts have pockets!
- Lele Sadoughi small crystal lily earrings in tortoise – I found these on the jeweler’s site earlier in the month for just $39 and figured they were a no-brainer since most of my spring and summer wardrobe is leaning toward the neutral side with plenty of browns, blacks, and whites.
AROUND THE HOUSE
- Schoolhouse brass coasters – We already have a set of these, but since one permanent lives in my work-from-home space and one in Dave’s, we added another set to the living room. If you prefer perpetually shiny brass, these aren’t for you. But if you’re a fan of patina, consider buying a set.
- Target striped throw pillows in black and cream – I purchased a set of linen striped throw pillows last spring for our living room, but they get so wrinkly that they’re better suited for the bed where they’re not being squished constantly. I went with these $20 throws as substitutes. They have a zipped opening for the insert, which is rare at that price point. The tags are also inside the cover, rather than being stitched on the outside, so you don’t have those stupid pieces of paper on the edge of your pillow that so many cheap pillows have. (They always look bad no matter how closely you cut them!)
