This is a downright summery Friday Favorites! Have a good weekend, friends! I hope you’re able to spend some time outside. ♥

  1. The June Julep Maven collection was revealed, today. We’re still in pastel and brights territory, which is why I skipped May’s box, but I like Alaina (driftwood taupe creme) from this collection. I’ve been keeping my nails short due to some damage, so I’m into neutral polishes, lately.
  2. The Tribeca top from Mata Traders is so, so cute. It’s available in a red print, as well.
  3. I might have to do a full second post on enamel pins, but for now can we please at least appreciate the Moustache P.I.N. by Full Sweatpants? My mom was a big fan of detective and mystery shows when I was growing up (which is definitely why I’m still kind of obsessed), and Magnum PI was one of our favorites to watch together.
  4. I’ve fallen hard for this sterling silver whale wrap ring from Alex and Ani.
  5. I think you know how much I love PrAna. It’s not like it’s some big secret. The Amelie dress (show here in Green Lace, because it’s adorable) is made of a 45% recycled blend. PrAna offers a number of Fair Trade, organic, and recycled options. Read more about their sustainability practices here. In the recent kerfuffle over labor practices of the “luxury” activewear industry, this is a company worth supporting.
  6. New shades from Rituel de Fille. Check out the Cultus collection! I’d love to get my hands on Whitethorn. These lipsticks are 100% worth the splurge, by the way. I purchased Rue a few months ago, and I’ve never looked back. All Rituel de Fille products are cruelty-free, 99% natural, and handcrafted without parabens, phthalates, synthetic dyes or synthetic fragrances.
  7. We’re pretty candle obsessed in this house. Paddywax makes some of my favorites. This verbena and patchouli blend is new to me, and seems like it would smell amazing.

Well, it’s here. The weather is getting colder by the day. It got down to 29 degrees a couple nights ago! I finally embraced the chill and got around to unpacking and reorganizing my winter layers over the weekend. I own a couple nice coats, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like to take a look when the end of October rolls around every year.

ModCloth has a great selection of eye-catching and unique coats, capes, sweaters and other outerwear styles.

These are my favorites.

Book Tour Bliss coat in Black / Sophisticated Saunter Cape

That black coat is one I would have definitely coveted in my younger days, especially during my Elegant Gothic Lolita phase. It seems a little less likely that I would actually wear this now, but I’m still really drawn to the style. Some things never change.

Winter Weather

Winterberry Tart coat in Burgundy / Luxe-y in Love coat in Pine

Diagonal Alley coat in Black / Fall Night Long scarf in Coral

That scarf in particular is calling my name right now.

I don’t know if you can tell, but I’m definitely a wool coat girl. I have a ski jacket for practicality’s sake (and for sledding), but when it comes to choice, it’s always going to be wool.

  1. The beautiful Trove Eyelash set from True & Co. is on sale right now. Through the weekend (August 16th) you can save an additional 15% on these sale pieces with the code PRIVATE15. You’re welcome. ♥
  2. Tj and I just signed up for Bright Cellars, a (newer) wine subscription service. I can’t wait to share the results with you! You can save 50% on your first month using my referral link (which also gets us a free bottle of wine, so that’s cool). This will be my first time trying out a wine subscription service, and I’m really looking forward to the results. This Cabernet Sauvignon/Grenach blend from Petit Chou will be in our first box.
  3. This blazer! Olive velvet pairs well with black lace. +Boots.
  4. Only five days remain on the Bath Sabbath expansion Kickstarter! Get in on this one. Bath Sabbath is a small batch, cruelty-free skin care company with a heavy metal theme. Their products are all sulfate and detergent free, and are great for sensitive skin. Check out their current line on etsy! For a pledge of $17, you can get yourself a beautifully sculpted soap or handcrafted beard oil. She’s Staring at You is scented with pomegranate and lime, plus notes of bergamot, bavender, and a hint of frankincense.
  5. I really want this coloring book when it comes out in October. Do you still color on occasion? I love it so much. I think it’s really important to hold on to a few childhood rituals; for me, coloring is definitely one of these.
  6. I love these super simple zodiac pendants from Moorea Seal. Birthday gift? Sure, thanks.
  7. The Lost Valley Ankle boot from Free People is a beaut. Black, obviously, but the other color options are lovely as well.

ModCloth has finally introduced its first-ever namesake label, 100% inspired by you and me.

To create this line of versatile separates and dresses, the folks at ModCloth looked at shopper feedback to determine all the must-have details (so many pockets!), pored over popular trends on Style Gallery, and did three times the typical amount of fittings to ensure a fabulous, consistent fit. The pieces in this collection are available in sizes XS through 4X!

I’ve been a fan of ModCloth since college, and it’s been wonderful watching this brand grow. This new line has been a long time coming, and I am thankful that there are so many grown-up pieces and work wear in the mix. Lots of navy and cranberry, too, and some great neutrals! For people that actually like a little color, there’s plenty of it (and some more graphic prints, as well). I know I personally tend to lean toward the darker side of the spectrum!

You can shop the line here. My personal favorites from the collection are below.

ModCloth's New Namesake Label

Lighthearted Lecture dress in Cranberry / Profound Pizzazz skirt

A wrap dress with pockets? How more perfect can you be? As for that skirt, I have always had an affinity for upholstery and wallpaper-inspired florals. I don’t think I’m the only one. Also, more pockets. Yes.

ModCloth's New Namesake Label

Overnight Oats top in Chia / Casual Composure cardigan

The jersey tank is available in three colors. I love the crochet detailing. Always. Of all the pieces I’ve featured here, I am probably most likely to buy the two above! Income pending.

ModCloth's New Namesake Label

Intern of Fate skirt in Navy / Trusty Travel top in Grey

Two great basics. The navy wool skirt was actually the first piece that caught my eye in this collection. I think maybe my “professional museum attire” brain has replaced my “summer dark bohemian wear” brain now that it’s August. I don’t know. I do know that my New England heart likes wool. PS do not listen to anyone who tells you that you can’t wear black and navy together.

Check out the full ModCloth label line! Which pieces are your favorites?

Summer in New England is fleeting, so I am thankful that we are only now in the last days of June. The hottest days are still ahead of us, and the most fun. I am thankful, also, that my summer will stretch just a little longer with our trip to Hawaii in October. Here’s hoping I can make it through these next few months without chopping off all my hair in a sweaty tantrum. Perhaps growing out a pixie cut during the summer was not the best decision I’ve ever made. Bobby pins are my most necessary hot weather accessory. I need to start buying them by the gross.

Summer essentials are on sale up to 50% off at ModCloth through July 6. Here are some of my personal favorites.

And don’t let summer goth get you down. You can still be comfortable and on point if the shades of the season aren’t your cup of tea.
