The Most Adorable Flamingo Print Blouse Plus 4 More Things We Love
Flamingo Print Tie Neck Blouse
The Flamingo Print Tie Neck Blouse from Finn & Grace has you covered for those summer days in which you have to go into the office but you want everyone to know you'd rather be on a tropical vacation. So basically, you can wear this regularly all season long. It lends a fun element to your classic black pencil skirt and sensible heels. Throw your favorite pair of skinny jeans into your car before you leave in the morning, and you can easily take this top from work to happy hour on a patio somewhere.
Kerrington Small Square Tote
With a bright and cheerful zig-zag pattern, the Kerrington Small Square Tote from Tory Burch's current line of purses is certainly eye-catching. The size is ideal for daily use so I'm lusting after it as an everyday summer bag. It's even water resistant, so if you're the type who knows how to pack efficiently, it would travel well with you to the beach. It's just large enough to hold onto your phone, keys, a beach towel, sunscreen, and a book. Wear your favorite floppy hat and sunglasses, and you'll be ready to soak up the sun for a few hours.
The Pilone Sandal
If I had a few extra dollars to spare and some place to wear them, you can bet M. Gemi's Pilone Sandals would be on my feet and showing off my newly pedicured toes in as fast as I could manage. Alas, my shoe budget is fairly modest and it seems I'm in a slow spot when it comes to fancy outings (even the wedding invitations have slowed down this season). This means that you have a better chance at scooping up these Italian-made beauties before they sell out. Wear them with my blessing.
'Tis the season to wear shirt dresses. Wildly popular this year, your average shirtdress is a casual day must-have. But with so many styles flooding the market, make sure you pick one that stands out. I'm getting a good vibe from this Clardina Dress by Club Monaco. It's a unique take on the ubiquitous style and features a ruffled collar and asymmetrical hem. The floral pattern lends a romantic feel, so you could just as easily dress it up with heels as you can dress it down with 90s style block wedges (worn over bobby socks!).
K.I.S.S.I.N.G Mini Lipstick Charms
Moms are notoriously difficult to buy for on Mother's Day. Mine always says she doesn't want anything, but I take it as a challenge to find the thing she does want, even if she doesn't know she wants it. This year, I think I'm going to give her Charlotte Tilbury's purse-friendly Mini Lipstick Charm Trio. It's three of Tilbury's popular K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick shades packaged in a conveniently small size. Mom can stash them in her bag for color touch ups after brunch with friends, or in the bathroom after our weekly coffee together at our favorite cafe. I can picture it now: she'll be not-so-subtly asking me about her chances at becoming a grandma while she casually applies a bit of Penelope Pink to her pucker.
