Gotta love a good form and function summer staple for little ones! This baby swimsuit (which I ordered for Coco in hot pink), is made with strategically placed flotation panels to help kids learn proper balance in the water as they build their confidence with swimming. Coco cannot wait to splash around in this all summer!
While I won’t be able to test these for myself while I’m still breastfeeding, Rich has tried the Protect & Restore products from Cheers, and he says they work wonders. The supplements contain ingredients that support your liver’s function so you wake up feeling much, much better than you typically would after drinking. Definitely check out the ratings and reviews section for these!
We’re in prime gardening season now, and if you’ve never really loved the pots and planters you use, Williams Sonoma has some gorgeous options. These blue and white chinoiserie pots are my favorites, and they're what I’m using to start an herb garden this summer. (Send me positive green thumb vibes, please!)
We’re approaching the time of year when our blow dryer goes on vacation to the back of the cabinet under the bathroom sink. If the idea of blowing hot air all over yourself during a sweltering summer doesn’t appeal, try this naturally antimicrobial hair wrap. In addition to drying your hair faster than air drying alone, Aquis towels help eliminate frizz and damage that can be caused by terry cloth towels. I have been using these hair wraps for years and am amazed at the amount of time it shaves off my drying time. This new anti-microbial copper version has all the hallmarks of the original but is especially amazing for your gym bag because it keeps odor and bacteria at bay.
Listen to me, all of you. Visors are chic. I said it and I meant it. Whether you opt for a floral moment or some timeless straw drama, visors are an often-overlooked summertime accessory that’s excellent at shielding your skin from the sun, and such a fun opportunity to give your summer looks a little extra oomph.
Did you know Rothy’s makes MEN'S SHOES NOW? Rich knows, that’s for sure. He just ordered these and not to be outdone, I ordered these (but let’s keep that between us). Also, the brand makes so many cute sandal styles that are perfect for summer. For those unfamiliar with Rothy’s, the brand creates endlessly comfy shoes with a strong focus on sustainability and responsible manufacturing. In fact, their signature material is spun from recycled water bottles. They also have the added benefit of being machine-washable and some of the cutest casual shoes out there.
If you can’t spend your summer having a nice, chilled sparkling beverage outdoors, are you even living? I love tableware that’s specifically designed to be used outside and prevent annoying little inconveniences. These champagne flutes are made to ensure your outdoor imbibing stays cool, and that it doesn’t drip condensation all over you. I’ll take 12, thanks.
I am in love with this cotton poplin shirt and its charming collar. We’ve been seeing oversized collars for quite a while, but I’ve never seen it done in such a flattering way before. It’s the boatneck that creates a shape and femininity—framing your collar bones in drool-worthy fashion. If Ganni wants to make it in more colorways, I won’t be upset.
This site is an absolute must to bookmark for unique homegoods and gifts. If you have a friend who just moved into a new place and already has everything, browse the offerings here and be absolutely delighted by the artistry and fun created by the AAPI designers on this site. If you want to grab something for yourself while you’re at it, such as this impossibly chic face roller, that is certainly allowed if not encouraged.
IT’S A SMART BASKETBALL. While my inner 13-year-old is losing her mind, current-me is happy I’m now old enough to have my own credit card. IT MUST BE MINE. DribbleUp is a fun and interactive tool for building skill, working out, or just having fun. It connects to your smart device (of course), can be used indoors or outside, and there are even interactive classes the whole family can enjoy. You might want to bookmark this for your Christmas lists NOW.
During the season of strappy tops and wide necklines, it's critical to have sturdy wardrobe tape at the ready. While I love a wide square neck (and we’re seeing so many of them right now) sometimes they gap open when you move and this tape helps safeguard against that. You can also use it to end the frustration of gaps in your button-down tops, too!
Without question, this is the best baby blanket on the market. I’ve purchased two for myself and I’ve also sent one to my sister-in-law who’s having a baby very soon. The blanket is of course the soft, fluffy goodness you’d expect from Barefoot Dreams, but it’s also got a stretchiness to it that makes it ideal for swaddling. If you're looking for a gift that new parents will use and love every single day, this is it.
Whether you use the included drawstring laundry bag or your own laundry baskets, this laundry dolly is going to change your laundry game forever. The wheel design allows for easy navigation of the stairs without holding your basket in your hands and performing some kind of Cirque Du Soleil act to get up and down without falling over. With this much laundry somehow coming from two rather small children, I deserve an innovative wheeled laundry dolly, thank you.
Anything that gets me to a delicious beverage—fast—is welcome in this house. This chai concentrate is really cool because it isn’t filled with artificial sweeteners and other nasty things which are so often found in fast-beverage options. This concentrate is ideal for making your own customized lattes (hot or cold!) at home.
Have you ever seen a more essential black dress in your LIFE? I bought a similar dress by this brand, Totême three years ago, and it’s seen more wear than any other dress I own for three years running. It’s the perfect dress for literally everything from daytime gatherings to dinners—there’s really endless versatility to it. Accessorize with abandon for dressing up, or pair with a denim jacket to keep it casual. This is one of the smartest wardrobe additions you’ll ever find.
Am I the last person on earth to hear of this cleaning product? Forty-one thousand Amazon reviews would suggest so. This every-surface (and they do mean that) cleaning product stands out because, in addition to—you know, working really well—it’s made with 99% natural ingredients, is environmentally non-toxic and non-hazardous, and is not tested on animals. It’s known for really going to work on grease, grout, and all kinds of stains on all sorts of surfaces. If you’re someone who takes deep satisfaction in a before-and-after cleaning project, The Pink Stuff is your new obsession.
I was not prepared to find a belted blazer this gorgeous at Zara. This affordable piece is going to boost your all-season professional wardrobe and personally, I’m really looking forward to re-exploring my work attire post-pandemic. Although, don't just restrict this beauty to the office. I'm also envisioning it with denim shorts for a super chic off-duty look as well.
