Let's talk about sleepwear that you also aren't mad about wearing around the house all day. I recently found this Victorian nightgown on Amazon and have since bought it in three colors due to the fact that it is incredibly comfortable, beautiful and has POCKETS! Friends, they HEARD US. Sleep well, the kind of deep sleep that only comes from knowing your nightgown has pockets.
It’s almost Easter egg dyeing time, and I had the idea to use dyed eggs as place cards for our Easter table setting. Just wait for the dye to dry and then use one of these paint pens to write names on the egg. You can also use these for drawing on designs, which might be a little easier and neater than a crayon or wax method pre-dye.
The hardest part about buying this pair of bow slides by Margaux is picking a color. These are simply the sweetest slides, ideal for home and (eventually) leaving home. They're the perfect feminine touch for any and all of your classic spring outfits—perfect for pairing with pants, skirts or dresses alike. It's also worth noting that like many of Margaux's footwear options, they come in narrow, medium and wide widths.

I also have a great opportunity for you to experience Boll & Branch’s glorious linens for bed and bath at a sweet discount. Right now, use code MARYO15 for 15% off your order. This is the best offer they're giving all season! Shop my favorites here.
If you haven’t perused the new arrivals section at Ann Taylor in a while, clear your afternoon. There are some REALLY good finds for spring happening, so if you feel like you don’t even know where to start for new-season style, this is a good jumping-off point. I especially like their A.T. Ease collection for pastel loungewear, specifically these joggers, this (or this), and this set. I own the joggers in two colors now and have been really impressed by how well they hold their shape compared to other knit joggers that sometimes quickly become baggy at the knees. Lastly, if you're headed back to work anytime soon, take a peek at this gorgeous dress and blazer in the prettiest blue fabric.
Let’s be honest, one of the best things about spring is the outerwear lightening up. No one can resist a good trench, especially not when it’s an updated and slightly modernized version of an incredibly wearable classic. This is one of the chicest takes I’ve seen on an affordable, lightweight trench in awhile. Bring on transitional weather!
There is nothing more frustrating than an entire beautiful piece of wood furniture being ruined by a random cold, sweaty beverage. I know this from tragic experience. If you're sick of strategically placing candles over these marks of shame, give this wood stain and watermark remover a try. I recently gave a facelift to one of my favorite tables that had been scarred by a glass of water, and it worked better than anything else I've tried.
While I do appreciate a bath from time to time, I'm really more of a shower person and I don’t think baths should have all the fun with their fizzy bombs and luxurious salts. What about the rest of us? Don’t we deserve nice things too? We do actually. It’s these little shower steamers that are infused with essential oils that release when you place one on the floor of your shower while the water’s running. I can attest they smell DIVINE.
While drinking wine hasn’t been my reality for QUITE a while (nine months to be exact), once I am able to imbibe again, I’ll be using these disposable little wine purifiers that you swirl around in your wine to remove sulfites and histamines—the nasty things that play a major part in causing wine headaches and hangovers the next day. These little gadgets can also reduce symptoms of common sensitivities to wine, too. Just take a look at the reviews and decide for yourself. Also, I appreciate that the bottom of the purifier is a detachable wine charm for marking your glass, a really thoughtful touch.
Did you know that Lululemon has gathered all of their leggings with pockets into one conveniently shoppable section?? You know a brand loves its customers when it does something so thoughtful. They get us. Leggings with pockets have arguably been my greatest discovery of the pandemic because I'm obviously not carrying a handbag around the house so if I don’t have a place to put my snacks I mean my phone, I'm not interested.
Agua by Agua Bendita has become one of my favorite splurge-worthy dress brands for spring and summer in recent years. If you haven’t been charmed by these colorful, feminine pieces yet, you really need to take a look. Every garment is absolutely breathtaking—unique yet classic so you can invest with confidence knowing they'll be worn year after year. If you need proof, check out my two most recently purchased pieces here and here. (P.S. Their swimwear is jaw-dropped as well!)
