Friday Favorites // 055 ::

  1. Being a PrAna Influencer means I get a sneaky peek at new styles. Lucky me! The new Cascade top in Gray Indigo is on my fall wishlist. I have a feeling I’m going to own the whole leggings and sweater thing this year. I’m getting older, and I just want to be comfy all the time. PrAna has an incredible selection of recycled and sustainable materials. I absolutely adore this company.
  2. I may have treated myself to both color ways of the new lotus pin from Inner Decay. That was a good mail day.
  3. Vena’s Fizz House is one of my favorite Portland spots, primarily because it’s one of the few adult places I’ve seen with an extensive (and beautiful) non-alcoholic drink menu. On our last visit, I got an orange shrub with house-made chocolate syrup. It was amazing. They have a great cocktail selection, too! Check out their infusion kits.
  4. The new fall collection from SpaRitual, Feminine, is out, with a few good neutrals. Spontanenous is probably my favorite.
  5. I’m a sucker for a classic hoop earring. I like a good mix of silver and gold when it comes to jewelry.
  6. I love these limited edition Chandra slip ons. These shoes are a collaborative effort between Bucketfeet and Piece & Co., a company that provides the fashion industry beautiful hand-crafted fabric ethically made by female artisans around the world.
  7. This underwear set from Thief and Bandit is the cutest. It looks super comfy, too.

Happy Friday, friendos! Have a great weekend!

Friday Favorites // 050 ::

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.

Friday Favorites // 048 ::

  1. Even now, I’m still secretly a sucker for graphic tees (and a good moon print). I like this tank from ModCloth. #summergoth!
  2. The Rogue and the Wolf has a killer collection, but this ring (“the rule”) is my current favorite.
  3. The Jacinta Skirt from PrAna is 100% organic cotton, Fair Trade certified, and officially on my summer wish list. I love PrAna.
  4. I need these raspberry hibiscus marshmallows in my face. ASAP.
  5. I have big dreams for our outdoor space, this summer. Dreams that involve a lot of color. Does an outdoor space require coasters? Probably not. But I like these.
  6. This violet creme polish from SpaRitual is so, so gorgeous.
  7. This keyring from With Care. Good.
  8. New album from Sam Beam & Jesca Hoop, Love Letter for Fire! Preview here via NPR’s First Listen.


  • MAC is releasing a Star Trek collection! At first glance, that seems pretty cool, but I am a little disappointed. The collection reportedly draws inspiration specifically from Deanna Troi, Uhura, Seven of Nine and Vina. “‘Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomenon whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries,’ MAC creative director James Gager said in a statement. ‘For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.’ Okay. I support that. But …Vina? Not particularly “powerful.” What about Captain Janeway? What about Major Kira? Lt. Dax? Dr. Crusher? Tasha Yar? Perrin? I understand that Star Trek fans may not actually be the target audience, here, but there’s a huge missed opportunity to represent the whole Trek universe. Additional note: MAC is not a cruelty-free company. Its parent company, Estee Lauder, tests on animals where required by law, and is currently available for sale in China (where animal testing is required).
  • If you’re local to the Dover New Hampshire area, be sure to stop by 7th Settlement on Tuesday, April 12 to celebrate the unveiling of the Woodman IPA to help support The Woodman Museum. 6-10pm. Trivia! Food! Fun! I’ll probably be there!
  • I am so excited for the newest Love Goodly box! The April/May box celebrates Earth Day in collaboration with Alicia Silverstone, and will benefit Farm Sanctuary. Preview the box here.

From July 23rd through the 28th, you can receive 25% off a purchase of $100 or more at Alternative Apparel using the code MIDSUMMER.

Alternative Apparel strives to create basic pieces that are better for people and the planet. Read a little bit more about their commitment to social responsibility here, and their fabrics here.

These are my picks. Basics don’t have to be boring, and they certainly don’t have to take a huge toll on the environment.


Fortnighter T-Shirt / Adrian Eco-Fleece Hoodie (eco true black)

I am in love with the print on the Fortnighter tee.


Double Dare Maxi Skirt (eco true eggplant, because I don’t wear black all the time) / Perfect Pima Shirttail Racerback Tank Top (black)


Sharkbite Dress / Bon Voyage Dress

The Pima Racerback is the most comfortable tank top I have ever owned, hands down. I finally had to give mine up after three years of weekly wear. I wear tank tops under most of my other shirts and blouses, so they are one staple I don’t mind investing in. I am personally currently in the market for a new black hoodie, as well! Birthday present? Sure!

Don’t forget. Use the code MIDSUMMER now through July 28th during the Alternative Apparel midsummer sale to receive 25% off purchases of $100 or more!
