friday finds

It’s Friday and it’s a holiday weekend…is there anything better? I’m off to spend a few days with my family, so forgive me if I take a little extra time off next week. For now, I’ll leave you with enough goodies to keep you sated until I’m back.

First up, a winner for that wildly popular kate spade new york contest! You ladies love your bedding, that’s for sure. I’m always so thrilled when one of our giveaways is a hit like this, so thanks for that. Our winner is lucky number 7, Emily, who won with her Twitter entry @emma621. Congratulations, Emily!

Now, on to more pressing business. Like jewelry. Pretty, delicate, utterly-perfect-for-spring jewelry, to be precise. Amy Wing’s spring collection has me in palpitations, and not just because she’s a dear friend (and because her stunning lookbook was styled by our inimitable Trends Columnist). Particularly this Tiny Blossom lariat, which I’m envisioning as the perfect finishing touch for everything I want to wear all summer.

You may very well fall over when I show you this next find. It’s from Payless Shoes (I nearly fell over just typing that). But hey, even the bargain bins get it right sometimes, and this sweet strappy sandal is spot-on for summer. I love the grosgrain detail, the color-blocking, the woven wicker edging on the wedge (and a very reasonable 2″ wedge it is, by the way). In short, a very excellent summer shoe…for $39.

Remember those Athena Procopiou scarves with which I’ve been utterly obsessed this spring? Well, guess who has two thumbs and found one for half off? Yep…this guy! Best of all, I didn’t snag the only one for myself…get thee to Anthropologie stat, and nab yourself this beautiful thing, which is even more bold, bright and statement-making in person.

I’ve been seriously tempted by these Tribeca pants at StyleMint for the last few weeks, but was convinced I couldn’t pull them off as anything other than sweats. Then, I went to the hairdresser yesterday, and my stylist was wearing the cutest version of sweats ever: a black version of these pants, a cropped, elbow-length sweatshirt, and black suede ankle booties. Her hair was in a perfectly messy side braid, and the whole thing was so fantastic, I was distracted into getting my hair chopped about 3 inches shorter than I was expecting. If you’re feeling brave, this just may be worth a try.

Last but not least, I thought I’d start showing you my favorite thing I’ve pinned on Pinterest each week. Are you pinning yet? I’m itching to bust out a certain perfect black pencil skirt I bought last month, but it’s been too cold. This look might just be the solution!

Have a fantastic holiday weekend, friends…don’t forget to splurge on a frosted sugar cookie (or two)!

currently coveting: amy wing designs venetian collection

I am so excited to show you this beautiful new collection – and not just because it was designed by a dear friend, the incredibly talented Amy Wing. Not even because this gorgeous lookbook, shot in Oregon wine country, was styled by another dear friend. Just because it’s so beautiful, so unique, and so perfect for this cozy, cold time of year, I can’t imagine anything more perfect.

Amy was inspired by the beautiful ironwork detailing she saw on a recent trip to Venice…and every single piece in this collection takes me straight off on a mental Italian holiday. Since an actual Italian holiday isn’t happening any time soon, I think the least I could do for myself is pick up one of these pretties and call it a souvenir.

Take a little mental vacation of your own by checking out all of these gorgeous lookbook photos, or do as I usually do, and head straight for the gift shop.

(PS – if you look closely, you’ll see my very own Hunter boots made a cameo in this shoot! I just hope all the fame doesn’t go to their head.)
