Bored with your current suiting? Let’s fix that. Suistudio suiting is now available at Nordstrom and friends, it is bananas. Absolutely beautiful structure and style, and a genuinely impressive quantity of prints, these suits are amazing before we’ve even touched on price point, which is not at all terrifying. If you’re able to narrow it down to the suit you want (lol good luck), this is a genius purchase for all office-dwellers or anyone who just loves a beautiful suit at a reasonable price point. I recently bought this one because these are the smartest stripes I’ve ever seen.
Everyone’s favorite affordable accessories destination has hopped on the headband bandwagon (which is simply a fun phrase to say), and the results are delightful. This braided burgundy velvet beauty was my first purchase, but it won’t be my last, because I can’t stop thinking about this stunner either. Get out of my head, and onto my head. Thanks.
Welp, diaper bags are suddenly a thing I think about now. When leaving the house with a new human who is capable of blowing out her diaper (and entire outfit) at any given moment, you need a super functional bag. Bonus points if it’s also cute. This one by TWELVElittle is adorable, super functional, and also comes in backpack form if you’re more comfortable toting the essentials (if not half the nursery) hands free. There are endless pockets (seriously I find a new one every day) and it doesn’t have an overly “diaper bag” feel, which I appreciate.
At this point, no one’s leaving the house without a portable charger for their phone, but what happens when your “portability” involves a dying laptop battery as well? If you’ve always been frustrated by your inability to charge your laptop on-the-go without sitting in a weird spot on the floor of an airport (been there), this charger is going to change the game for you. In addition to USB ports for charging your phone, it has a full 3-prong A/C outlet so dead laptops are nothing but a distant memory.
With winter approaching, and a tiny human around, it’s really nice to have a throw-on-and-go hooded puffer that can keep me warm in all weather conditions. It’s also extremely nice that this one happens to clock in at under $60 (WHAT?), comes in seven colors, and is super cozy on quick coffee runs. I mean, it’s almost silly not to add this to your cool weather coat stash. I bought it in burgundy which is such a nice addition to my mostly-black collection of winter coat options. Best part? It's fleece lined (!!!!), has a super flattering cut that doesn't make you look like the Michelin Man, and is that perfect length that just dips below your bum.
With a baby on my lap, the coffee table and I are completely out of touch. Literally. I need something much closer and more convenient (preferably on wheels), that doesn’t require a ton of reaching or moving around. This incredibly functional (and shockingly affordable) “C table” is keeping the things I need like my laptop and phone close at hand no matter who has decided to fall asleep on me. You can also use it for the same purposes in bed. It’s the BEST.
NB: There are lots of great, super chic C tables out there (I personally love this option and this option) but for my current purposes, it was critical to have a C table that had wheels (so I can move it easily with a baby in one hand) and also adjustable height (so I can use it interchangeably while on my couch or on my bed). I wasn't looking for a permanent decor option (I'd go with one of the above if you are), but rather a more functional table that can be put away in a closet when not in use or guests are over.
These super highly rated booties are nothing short of essential for winter dressing. Such a beautiful heel and classic shape, you really can’t go wrong if you're in the market for a fresh bootie for fall and need something affordable. There are a bevy of gorgeous color options, but I think this is an especially great boot to purchase in snakeskin if you’ve wanted to dip your toe (literally) into this season’s snakeskin trend, but feel wary of making a huge investment. Trends that you might be sick of in a few months are much easier to test out when they're not so hard on the ol' bank account.
We’ve dabbled in meal subscriptions before, and I'm thrilled to report that Home Chef has really stood out from the pack.
