Print of the week

indigo pattern

Some of the best Liberty prints are just a little bit trippy.

Preppy little tabletop items depicting jungle animals fill me with delight. I can not tell you why.

I am so thoroughly charmed by this cocktail tumbler, with its creatures all in a row. Very Scully & Scully: the affordable version.

And I’m not going to lie; I love all the gold.

Isn’t this platter by Waylande Gregory actually rather punk rock? I would like very much to own it.

Top five of the day: denim skirts, classic and otherwise

I spent half the summer searching for the right denim skirt, and finally settled on one that fit my specs (A-line; no-nonsense wash; knee-length hem) even though I wasn’t exactly electrified by it. This is the one I should have held out for, and would have, had I only known it was coming down the pike: the long, slim—but not too slim— silhouette is retro without being obviously so, and kind of sexy too, in an unexpected way. Truly a textbook wear-it-now-wear-it-later weekend piece too: perfect with sandals right this second, and with boots come fall.

coated denim skirt is the perfect way to get a leather-type vibe without having to fork  over too much cash.

This super-clean black stretch denim skirt with nifty side zipper detail is so very office-worthy.

A simple, unadorned, and delightfully under $100  option.

The slit’s on the daring side, but the rest of this A-line skirt plays things so straight that it doesn’t come off as too much.

What is the most totally not you item that you’re dying for anyway?

I am neither a fan of the loafer, nor that which is conspicuously designer-branded; my style only just ever-so-slightly skews preppy. And yet I crave myself a pair of Gucci horsebit loafers something fierce. And you?
