This tweed bow dress is named the “Coco Tweed Bow Dress” because they knew I needed it. The oversized fit makes it comfortable while the tweed and gold buttons make it super polished. The dress comes in green, tan, light blue, herringbone and one of my Coco’s favorites: red. Good luck choosing!
I spend much of my workday hopping between zoom, google meet, teams and an ever-increasing number of other video conferencing platforms. There's nothing worse than thinking you're joining an audio-only call only to be surprised that you're actually on camera. I prefer to safeguard against the guesswork with these webcam covers which are a simple, sleek way to secure your privacy when working on your laptop. They’re ultra-thin and won’t prevent your laptop from opening smoothly. They’re compatible with most laptops, phones and tablets and are quite a bit sleeker than the post-it I was using.
I love quilted jackets, but they can sometimes fit too boxy. I love the feeling of wearing a quilt, but I don’t want to look like I’ve stripped the bed to wear it. Varley got ahead of all that by giving this hooded, quilted jacket a cinch-able waist. The gold hardware and dolphin hem also give it extra polish.
There are some things in life just worth knowing: how to pump gas (unless you live in New Jersey?), how to fry an egg and how to expertly sew a button. I thought I knew how to sew buttons, but after watching this video, I realized my skills have been a little more — what’s the word — improvisational. This video breaks down the best way to sew a button in a super clear, straightforward way. Now I’m daring my fall coats to lose buttons so I can test out my skills.
No, I'm not talking about a regular butter knife. This stainless steel butter spreader is so much more. Yes, it can cut butter and spread peanut butter and jelly. But, this ergonomically designed tool has small slotted holes down the blade that can curl hard butter. If you’re tired of annihilating a beautiful, golden piece of toast by trying to spread cold, hard butter on it, this tool is a must-have.
I have always loved crocodile embossed leather because it quickly adds a bit of glamor to even the simplest pieces. Unsurprisingly, this croc-embossed belt from & Other Stories was immediately added to cart. It comes in brown, black, beige and a deep forest green.
I have a few LBDs I reach for regularly, but I’ve been looking for an LBS, a Long Black Skirt. I absolutely adore this one from Pixie Market and am convinced it is last year's pleated black trouser trend in skirt form because it can be styled a million different ways. Personally, I’d start by pairing it with this striped Line + Dot cardigan.
I fell so hard for this navy floral pattern skirt from Buru that I bought the dress version as well (check out how I styled it here). If the autumnal florals on that deep navy background don’t make your heart skip a beat, I should add that this skirt also has pockets and an elastic waist. I wore it to the farmers market this weekend with a white tee, denim jacket, and sneakers (see the look here) but it could just as easily be dressed up with a blouse and heels.
When the weather cools, it’s hard to imagine wearing anything other than a cozy, flannel pajama set. But sometimes we go places that require a slightly more polished look. (I know, why?) I find winter-appropriate "going-out tops" hard to nail, but this lace trim sweater from Halogen hits the mark — and does so under $100! The scalloped lace is the icing on an already beautiful, softly ribbed sweater. Trust me, your pajamas can wait.
I absolutely adore this chunky ring from Lié Studio. The multi-ring style is reminiscent of Cartier trinity rings, but this 18k gold-plated stunner has a slightly more modern, sculptural twist. I’d wear this ring on my index finger to show it off... and to play with. It’s like a chic fidget spinner for adults.
We recently gave this craft kit to Coco for her birthday and it’s been a huge hit. It includes over 1,000 supplies like pipe cleaners, beads, sequins and my personal favorite, googly eyes. In addition to sparking their imagination, creativity, problem-solving and fine motor skills, these crafts keep my kids engaged for hours.
Tommy John is the ultimate in super soft, perfectly-fitting loungewear that looks good as new, even after the 100th wash. I’ve compiled some of my favorites HERE, but am most recently obsessed with the “winetasting” colorway of this jogger and matching hoodie. You can still get 25% off with my discount code MARYORTON25.
I have been redecorating the girls’ bedroom for two years. I thought the project would only take a couple of months, but with endless furniture delays and other snafus, two months somehow became two years. I’ve been looking for the perfect bobbin frame for a piece of artwork in the space and instead of enduring lengthy lead times on yet again another item for the room, I’ve decided to DIY the frame. I ordered these wooden half-rounds and I’ll be following this tutorial. Wish me luck!
I will never stop being a vest fanatic — all the warmth and style of a winter coat with even more wearability. This maxi-length herringbone tweed vest from Hunter Bell is a shining example. It has a double-breasted closure with a lapel collar and flap front pockets. Open or closed, over pants or a dress, I will be wearing this beauty nonstop for the foreseeable future.
As a self-proclaimed connoisseur of baseball caps, it’s my duty to try every cap in existence and this chino cap from Polo Ralph Lauren is an instant classic. It comes in 100% cotton nubuck or red, with the signature Polo Player logo embroidered on the front. A heritage classic cap for all your fall bad hair days.
Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or just looking to add a festive snack to spooky szn, these spiderweb deviled eggs are a real crowd-pleaser. They're festive and even seem easy enough to make with my toddlers. I can already hear them squealing in delight at that spider-web effect.
Addison Bay’s activewear is so cute that I reach for it even when I have zero plans to work out. The fall collection is no different — it’s packed with fashionable leggings and stylish pullovers in chic colors and prints. A couple of my early favorites are this latte striped quarter zip sweater and this dreamy pullover turtleneck that comes in THIRTEEN different colors.
Ritual’s prenatal is my go-to, but somehow I only discovered their POSTNATAL after baby number three. Every pregnant person knows that a prenatal is essential, but why does no one talk about the importance of getting essential vitamins and nutrients when you're recovering from delivery and (in my case) breastfeeding? I've been taking Ritual’s Postnatal multivitamin daily since having Gigi and they've made a noticeable difference in my postpartum recovery.
With Ritual, you get extra transparency. They tell you where their key ingredients come from and why they’re there. Their ingredients are clean and contain key nutrients in ideal forms. Whether you need a regular multivitamin or a prenatal/postnatal, I can't recommend Ritual enough. Tap HERE and use code MARYO30 for 30% off your first order.
