Monday Memo No. 171
Cashmere sets, a sunglasses sale and the last minute candy going in our Easter baskets.
Krewe makes many of my favorite sunglasses and their bi-annual sale is on! They’re offering up to 70% off select styles, with many cult-favorite styles marked down under $100. They’re all handcrafted and exceptional quality so shop the sale before it ends! My personal favorite styles are the Simone and Margot, but it's hard to play favorites.
Kilte remains my knitwear OBSESSION and this cashmere set is a great example of why. This heavenly cashmere is 100% machine washable (yes WASHABLE) and comes in the most beautiful pink peony shade you’ve ever seen. My code MARY15 is still active for 15% off.
Have you ever written “healthy chips” down on your shopping list? These roasted fava beans from Bada Bean Bada Boom satisfy the crunch and flavor of a chip, but with the nutrition of a fava bean. They came recommended by Grace Atwood and are a perfect protein-packed on-the-go snack for kids and adults alike. Throw them on a salad or check out their sweet flavors for a nut-free alternative to granola.
I just ordered a few amazing jewelry pieces from COS and they’re ALL made from recycled brass, which has the look of gold without the price. I got this beaded necklace, these chain-link drop earrings, and these chunky hoops because you can never go wrong with a chunky hoop. It's also fun to say which is worth something.
Addison Bay is a go-to for fashionable activewear and their spring drop is full of styles that work with a bump or not. Some of my favorites include this swing dress, this peplum shirt, and this crew neck sweater available in a dozen spring-y colorways.
I came across these crochet raffia ballet flats from Loeffler Randall and between the pitch perfect ballet style and the raffia material, I’ve never been more sure of something in my life. The only thing I’m not sure of is how to choose between the black, brown and red colorways. Please advise.
My dear friend, Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific, has teamed up with Lake Pajamas on a collab that is absolute perfection. Everything is so vibrant and springy, but I especially love this A-line terry dress that would be the cutest swim coverup ever in pink or navy. I already own this adorable striped PJ set and matching robe and can confirm it is impossible to have a bad day in these ultra-soft happy hues. My discount code MARYXLAKE is still active for 10% off.
If you’re not replacing jelly beans with Wiley Wallaby Sourrageous Drops, you’re doing Easter wrong. These deliciously chewy candies come in an assorted bag of watermelon, green apple and lemon flavors and they are so good, you might just need an Easter basket of your own. Arguably my favorite candy on the planet.
Cara Cara has given striped shirting the skirt treatment in this navy and white striped maxi. It’s 100% cotton and 100% the most comfortable, versatile thing you’ll wear all summer.
I discovered this Etsy store Mini and Kids Leather who make the sweetest purses for little ones that can be personalized with their names and a Liberty London fabric strap. My girls are obsessed with these tiny purses and they’re the perfect size for them to wear cross-body comfortably. I also just got these custom name signs by the same shop to display in their room which I'm displaying on a shelf with these cute clip stands.
I can’t begin to tell you how beautiful these square-toed, mid-heeled leather sandals from The Row are in person. They are certainly an investment, but with a super wearable heel height, they’ll pay for themselves in cost-per-wear in no time. I don’t think they look amazing on the model on the product page — I actually fell for them when I saw them here.
ElliFox sources sapphires, rubies, emeralds, opals and nearly every other beautiful gemstone to create this dreamy rainbow strand. I just received mine in the mail and it’s even more gorgeous in person. I got the longest length option (32”) so that I can wear it doubled around my neck or long. I also love the round gold anchor clasp because it gives the option of hanging pendants from it.
If you have any special occasions coming up, I need you to take a look through Couper’s curation of breathtaking dresses. I can’t think of anything dreamier than this colorful ikat dress or this striking orange gown (hello, pockets!). I just ordered this asymmetrical ruffle dress for some upcoming summer events when the bump is going to be large and in charge.
I've been traveling a lot recently and I've officially HAD IT with fickle hotel safes but thankfully, with the Trova GO biometric safe, I will never need a hotel safe again. The security of your valuables while traveling is in your control with Trova’s aluminum alloy design that resembles a battery pack or hard drive. The Trova GO is also Bluetooth connected so it can push smart notifications like its "last known location feature" for when you know, you leave it in the bathroom.
ByTiMo has launched a home collection inspired by vintage and antique pieces and it is a treasure trove. The ceramics are inspired by Japanese design and adorned with vintage French and English motifs. I just ordered two of these egg glasses because I have a soft-boiled egg for breakfast at least three days a week and traditional egg cups don’t typically offer a perimeter for the shell. They’re functional AND gorgeous.
Hunter Bell’s new arrivals are bold and feminine and I simply could not resist. I ordered this pleated maxi dress for an upcoming spring wedding and the flutter sleeves, smocked bodice, and vibrant colors are even more breathtaking in person. I also ordered this tiered ruffle maxi skirt and matching peplum top that are amazing together or worn as separates.
This award-winning hydrating makeup primer from MILK Makeup is a product makeup artists vouch for time and time again. The silicone and oil-free primer smooths skin and provides an ultra-hydrating canvas for your makeup that guarantees it stays put all day long.
This floral knit bustier and matching knit sweater are sweet separates, but together, they are an absolute DREAM. If you scroll down on the product page here, you can see how gorgeous this set is styled with pale pink wide leg pants.
Amazon Prime has come through with a last-minute Easter basket win with these unicorn candy bracelets. The adorable stretchy candy bracelets will keep little ones happy and occupied for hours.
In case you missed it, Hill House dropped their spring collection and it is breathtaking. Some of my favorites include: this checked button down set, this perfect puff-sleeve beauty, and the nap dresses I got for me and the girls which are featured in this Instagram video (that also offers an essential parenting hack.)
These plant-based sandwich bags are a perfect BPA-free answer to food storage and snack baggies. They’re designed with a kid-friendly zip seal and are completely compostable.
