Made in the Shade.

Happy Friday, Magpies!  A couple of new obsessions on my radar that I had to share with you to ease our way into the weekend…

Pick No. 1: Pared Sunglasses

Pared is new-to-me and I’m smitten with their statement styles — especially the Puss & Boots style shown on the chic pea above and below in splashy pink (more colors here).

Pick No. 2: The Emilia Wickstead Dress

Oh how I would die to own an Emilia Wickstead.  I love her ladylike sensibility.  (I also love her name and its spelling.)  This petal pink number would be so elegant and so versatile.

Pick No. 3: The Loupe Statement Earrings

Do you know about the eboutique The Loupe?  I just discovered it and was dying over the collection of elegant statement earrings — and most are under $100!  I just ordered a pair of floral earrings recently, but if I hadn’t, these pearl-centric flower studs would have been in the running!  I also love these raffia and chiffon drop earrings, but the real winner?  These hand-beaded seed pearl earrings, which are now on sale for only $36.  I had to buy them!

Pick No. 4: The Erdem for Nars Highlighting Pencil

Designer Erdem (known for his stunning floral dresses) has partnered with Nars for a line of limited edition “Strange Flowers” cosmetics, and at the very top of my lust list is this multi-use highlighting pencil, which I imagine using under my eyebrows, in the inner-corners of my eyes, and even on my cupid’s bow.

Pick No. 5: The Monrow Supersoft Sweat.

We’re edging out of cooler temperatures, but I still love wearing sweats while padding around the apartment in the evenings, and Monrow is my favorite brand.  I think I need this shell pink pair, although I also love the whimsy of this gray pair with the heart embroidered at the calf.  (Incidentally, though Adidas has never really been my vibe, I like the look of the Monrow sweats paired with these nude Adidas campus sneaks, below.)

Pick No. 6: The Mercedes Castillo Slide.

I am smitten with these pink satin slides from Mercedes Castillo ($295) in bubblegum pink.  So darling with a frothy white dress or a pair of jeans and a ruffled blouse.  Also available (and on sale!) in a punchy red and a demure taupe here.

Pick No. 7: The Tweed Coat.

Oh my goodness!  This ladylike pink tweed coat ($129!) is haunting my dreams right now.  I like to imagine myself wearing it over a white shift dress or with dark wash skinnies and a dramatic, frilly blouse.  Chanel vibes for under $130 — I’ll take it!  I also like this style in the ivory, on sale for $108!

Pick No. 8: The White Lace Puff Sleeve Top.

I love the Zimmerman-esque style of this delicate white puff-sleeved blouse ($55!)  It brought to mind this $68 steal of a dress, which was just re-stocked and would look incredible on a tall, leggy person!

Pick No. 9: The 9Seed Marbella Dress.

I have been straining to see if there’s a way for me to rationalize the purchase of one of Lisa Marie Fernandez’s Erica dresses, which I especially love in this polka dot print or this pink print, but I’m increasingly thinking about 9Seed’s Marbella dress as a similarly-shaped substitute.  I like it in the chambray blue below or crisp white.

Pick No. 10: The Everlane Relaxed Linen Shirt.

I’ve written about this before, but I’m in love with my boxy Everlane shirt in the pink and white stripe.  Everlane generously sent me one, and I wear mine with white skinnies and my Hermes slides and I’m out the door without thinking twice.

P.S.  Amazing floral dresses and accessories.

P.P.S.  What to wear for the fourth!




  1. LOVE Emilia Wickstead (and the name Emilia — I have a friend named Emilia and have long admired it! I have a major obsession with names, tied to my interest in etymology…) — that dress is so gorgeous!

    The Monrow heart sweats are too cute!

    1. So elegant — Emilia. It was on my list of baby names but we opted for Emory (family name) — and if we ever have another daughter, it would be too similar to Emory’s name, I think! Someone else must use it…xoxo
