Night Out Jumpsuit Guide

Jumpsuits making a comeback make us happy in so many ways. These outfits can be super chic and sophisticated while creating a very cohesive look. We love them for a night out, but the key is avoiding some of the looks that can be costumey or a bit over the top. Here are some of our favorite ways to get in on the jumpsuit trend, with some of the styles even safe for work.
I adore this Finders Keepers jumpsuit which has a cut out back. The cut is sleek and the open back is great to show off your tan. It’s $157.
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes to everything about this Alice & Olivia Londyn jumpsuit, on sale for $169.
This Theory Odila jumpsuit is perfect on so many levels. The crepe fabric is perfect for work but also great paired with scrappy stilettos for extra curricular events. It’s $455 and also comes in black.
This Greylin Osten jumpsuit is perfect for a weekend in the Hamptons or on the beach. The material is breathable and we like the wide leg. It’s $114.
This Norma Kamali jumpsuit is $99.

Summer Essential: Foldover Clutches

Summer is right around the corner and it’s time to ditch your shoulder bags for a something a little more light and colorful. Plus, we don’t want straps rubbing on our sunburn. We’ve never been so excited about folder clutches as we are now. Designers all over the world are putting forth amazing designs and intricate looks that we can’t wait to get our hands on. Here are some of our picks:
This Clare V foldover clutch has been a runaway success. The bags are super roomy and come in literally dozens of patterns and colors. My favorite is this jaguar print, pictured, $220.
I have been eyeing this Sophie Anderson Camille foldover clutch for the longest time. It is extremely spacious and I love the pattern. It’s $425.
This Star Mela Arla clutch isn’t a foldover, but we love it nonetheless. It’s hand beaded and embroidered and is $160.
This Stella McCartney Falabella clutch has great hardware detail. It’s $895.

Summer Must-Have: Sunglasses

Sun’s out, sunglasses on. When it comes to warm weather, day drinking and outdoor brunching, there’s arguably no accessory more important than your sunglasses. Not to worry, we’ve assembled a nifty guide of sunnies for the season, across a range of price points.
Not going to lie, these Linda Farrow rose gold round sunnies are not for the demure, but boy do they make a statement. We absolutely love the silhouette and the matte mirrored lenses, which is a giant trend this year. They are $1,068.
For something a little more appropriate for an everyday look, we love these L.A. Coen glasses from Oliver Peoples for $365. They come in a wide range of frame colors and lenses.
We love everything about these Le Specs glasses, including the price point at $55.
Channeling a laid back island look? These Hammock and Palms Coco Loco sunglasses are just the look. We love the tortoise frame and polarized lenses. Oh, and added bonus — they float in the water, just in case you’ve had a little too much rosé and misplace your sunnies. They are $124.99.
Cat eyes are all the rage right now, and we can’t get enough go these Fendi cat eye shades, $495.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and that means that yearly dread of finding the right gift for the woman responsible for bringing you into this world starts to build. Fear not, we’ve created a Mother’s Day Gift Guide that should help you find a gift that’s equal parts thoughtful and stylish. Here are some of our picks:
Aerin Beauty’s new Rose de Grasse perfume is a great spring scent and a nice daily indulgence at $185.

It’s no secret that we are Fornasetti fan girls. My apartment is full of these beautiful candles and it’s always a go-to gift for me to give. They run at $175 a pop, but are pieces of art, so we justify the cost. Oh, and they smell great. Check them out here.
Last Mother’s Day, I bought my Mom these Ugg Ansley slippers and I swear she hasn’t taken them off since. They are super comfy and warm during the winter, but are a true year-round luxury for less than $100.
This merino wool cape from Vince is less than $200.

Finally — a self tanner for olive skin

I’ve had the most awful time with self tanners for literally the last decade that I had given up on them until literally earlier this week. I have olive skin, and every self tanner I tried seemed geared toward porcelain white skin, leaving me with unnatural and unhealthy looking orange skin a la tan mom. Seriously, I will take my pale winter skin over an orange glow any day.

Then, earlier this week while complaining about this issue with an olive skinned girlfriend, she recommended BareMinerals FauxTan for face. I scurried over to Sephora with a healthy dose os skepticism, but thought for less than $30 it was worth a try.

I have been so pleased with the results. The serum gives a brown sheen, not orange, and was super easy to apply. Consider me converted!

Lust-worthy Espadrilles: Castaner

We’re going to go ahead and call Castaner the shoe of the season. The Spanish company traces its heritage back to the 1700s when the family’s first espadrille maker was born. The rest has been a long and successful history in making some of the world’s most sought after shoes.

Castanet came onto our radar last year because of the craftsmanship. when we buy watches, we buy Swiss. When we buy leather, we buy Italian. So, it only seemed natural to turn to Spain on a months-long search for the perfect espadrille.
My favorite pair is their Canton style, which blends old world espadrille with a modern twist in metallic leather. I love the silhouette of the shoe, and the straps make them really comfy and dare I say sturdy for an espadrille. I haven’t stopped getting compliments on them since I got mine.
I also love their Jeanette style, which is also metallic and has a Grecian feel to it because of its crossed straps and ankle cuff. They are $105 on the link above.
If you’re after a more classic wedge look, we love these ones for $105.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Launches, America Goes Crazy

Preppy Palm Beach label Lilly Pulitzer launched its limited-time Target collection this weekend, and women across the country frantically stocked up on pastel-printed everything. Target’s website crashed because of extreme demand, a rare reaction in wake of weak designer collaboration lines over the last few years.

Some of our favorite pieces of collection, particularly the beachwear and cover ups, are already sold out online. But, the brave can venture to the suburbs to look for excess stock.
