The Fashion Magpie White Flowers

Currently, Inspired By…

Love the muted palette of the living room corner above snapped by Caitlin Flemming, especially those grainsack pillows from Diani Living (dying over this monogrammable style!) and the powerful arrangement of all-white flowers in that sleek white cylinder vase (get a similar look with this or these).  (Also, overall, the mood of the vignette reminds me of this preppy/traditional rug from Albert and Dash, which I would so love in our dining room — or maybe as a runner in our kitchen?! — and is currently marked down.)  Separately, if you arrange your flowers at home, you must buy a pair of these — my mother in law gifted me a pair in my stocking one Christmas and they make my life so much easier.  These also get good reviews (and you can buy a coordinating pair of flower scissors) — and they are absolutely adorable.  (But, more expensive.)

The Fashion Magpie Paper Bag Waist Skirt

I love the paper bag waist skirts I’ve been seeing all over — nothing telegrams summer ease better than this breezy, casual style.  The skirt above on Jasmine Dowling is MaxMara (available in a blue and white stripe or solid white on sale),  but I’m partial to this ecru-colored, linen-effect style from Banana for its Karen Blixen vibes.  (That bag tho — get the look with this.)

The Fashion Magpie White Dress

White eyelet is an eterna-style for me: I can never have enough of it.  I love the snap of Ruta En Route above!  Currently on my radar: this $60 steal  (can we talk about how adorable the model is?  Jennifer Garner much?!); this Self-Portrait (on sale!); this $80 romper; and this billowy Sezane (or this one!).  Also — the bag the chic pea above is wearing looks startling similar to this, n’est-ce pas?

The Fashion Magpie By Tatoufa 3

I’ve lusted after By Tatoufa straw bags for a long while now and wish I’d jumped on the bandwagon before they (understandably) hiked the prices.  They are all hand-made by a mother-daughter duo in Paris.  Tres chic.

The Fashion Magpie Smocked Top 2

The Fashion Magpie Smocked Top

I’ve written about my girl crush on Jenny Walton in the past, and have been digging the smocked tops she’s been wearing this summer (seen above).  I am contemplating copycatting with this top from hot brand Petersyn, this steal from Pixie Market, or this floral find.  As far as swimwear goes: she’s wearing this style, but I prefer this, which is now on serious sale!  (Pam’s a fan, too.)  Alternately, let this dress do all the work for you!

Ugh – the ever-chic Alice Naylor-Leyland in a stunning Roksanda dress (I thin it’s this one or something similar).  This floral silk maxi achieves a similar effect (and 70% off!) — or this one.


I think mini would die over these precious maracas.

My favorite sunglasses are on sale!!!

This scalloped tank!  OMG.  You know I have a thing for scalloped edges.

A letter to myself on the eve of giving birth.

Speaking of scalloped edges: this stationery!  (I’m also swooning over this set.)

The rugs and baskets from this Etsy shop = TDF.

Gift ideas for any occasion.

These traditional French drinking glasses never go out of vogue.

I love the colors of these striped Turkish towels (on sale).  I need to find a monogrammer here in Manhattan — then I could buy these in bulk and give as gifts…


  1. I have those drinking glasses in two sizes and they’re the best! Nearly unbreakable (I say “nearly”, because we did have an incident one raucous pre-baby New Year’s Eve…) and still looking good nearly a decade later.

    Love Turkish towels – have a couple I picked up in Greece and Turkey that I always pack in my carry-on while traveling – they make for a good scarf/travel blanket, can obviously serve as a towel in a pinch, and don’t take up too much room. What a cute idea to give monogrammed ones as gifts – they’d definitely be appreciated, I’m sure.

    And get the maracas! I got some unpainted ones for the baby a while ago, and she loves them (also good for traveling because the ones I have aren’t too loud).

    1. That’s so smart to travel with a Turkish towel! Hadn’t thought of that, but super convenient. I actually might buy one to keep in Emory’s stroller for when we are out and about — she somehow always finds her way into a sprinkler!
