Now it may have been a cold and rainy month (at least it has been in LA) but it’s clear that sunshine or more likely, vacation is on everyone’s mind. But hey it’s March! Are we really surprised?! We have warm days full of sunshine and outdoor activities heavily on the brain. However, we are a design blog after all so there were a few big winners that are definitely also helping our homes look and maybe even feel warmer too. Ready to see what’s been coming off the shelves quick this past month??
Man, I was happy to see this sconce on the list!! I have a personal attachment to it because it’s from my sculptural sconce post. I know there was some interesting debate in the comments but we are FIRM believers that if you have the wall and/or space, a sculptural sconce is such a cool and beautiful design piece. Sadly this one is no longer available. Did y’all sell it out?? I’d like to think so, ha! Here’s a similar one if you’e interested.
I’d like to take credit for this one with my special switches and switch plate post but I don’t think I can. This beauty was probably snagged from Emily’s farmhouse kitchen and that is anything but a surprise. I know switching out outlet covers and switch plates can feel unnecessary but if you have the budget it’s such a special touch that we love. I’m planning on switching out as many of mine as possible! (At least the visible ones:))
This is what I was talking about when I said vacation was and is on all of our minds. This is Ryann’s new favorite bag (that is going to be perfect for her upcoming Japan trip) and this is what she had to say about it: “My husband and I are going to Japan in less than 2 months (EEEEEEEK) and a few weeks ago he surprised me with this super versatile shoulder bag. I love how simple and utilitarian it is and think it is going to be perfect for our travels. Speaking of our travels, I would love any Tokyo recs! Know of any restaurants, shopping, design stores, excursions, or sights we must see?? Let me know!!” It also comes in a bunch of other really cute colors.
Oooo baby did y’all have OPINIONS about unitards last Saturday. However, the popularity of this little number in the link up was the final straw that told us people were into this trend because of how many of you bought it. Thanks to Albie and her new self proclaimed title of “comfort influencer” a lot of you are owners of fashion’s current hottest trend – unitards.
As a reminder this was her review: “Hi my name is Albie and I’m your fave comfort influencer lol. One of my fave new comfort finds is this jumpsuit from Old Navy! So good! I purchased two colors to start and now I want em in every color. What I especially love is that I can wear em around the house with a robe and then switch out my robe for a shacket to pick up the mini from school or do a quick Target run. There’s a built-in shelf bra that’s surprisingly supportive considering how too heavy I am, although to leave the house, I pair it with a bralette to be safe.”
This is a mystery link but there’s zero mystery why this beautiful faucet was popular! It’s modern but timeless and that Rejuvenation brass is without a doubt stunning in person. You just can’t go wrong with anything from them.
GET US TO A WARM BEACH… or pool… or lake… or river… or even a clean puddle at this point! Once I’m there I want to be in this swimsuit because not only did Emily make an incredible case for it, so did Caitlin because she bought TWO. It seems that a lot of you felt the same since it’s #5 on this month’s list. Here are Caitlin’s exact words: “I have been #emfluenced (yes, it happens to our team, too) and I AM GLAD. After reading Em’s glowing review of her new TA3 swimsuit, I grabbed two of my own (the Plungey, which she recommended, and the Lacey, which is a little more covered up – that’s the one I’m wearing up there) and both are AWESOME. I love swimming/the beach/the pool and don’t have a ton of swimwear-induced agony – like, I’m at a place with my body where my general feeling is “it is what it is” – but these suits made me feel SUPER comfortable AND cool. They were both incredibly supportive (the lace-up back is NO JOKE – you’re in TIGHT, in a good way!) and held up awesome after hooooours and hours in the ocean. My friends and I are renting a blow-up waterslide later this month and I can’t wait to wear this one again for the whole day.”
Now, I know we shouldn’t care about how we look in a swimsuit but I think most of us still do and this shapeware swimsuit really does a great job at making whoever is wearing it feel confident. What’s also so great about this brand is that their sizing goes up to 4x and they show models in varying sizes. I think this is the year I’m investing in one.
It may have taken momentary break from this list but IT’S BACK! Maybe we’re all still cold or maybe it’s just an incredible product that I also very much want. If you didn’t catch Em’s updated review after three years of use check that out there🙂 IT’S COMPELLING.
EE! This was my link and I hope whoever bought these pants loves them as much as I do. I truly would sleep in them if I could BECAUSE they are that comfortable. I even bought a slightly different black pair because I couldn’t get enough. I’ve been dressing them up and down depending on the day so I stand by their versatility. Now, they are linen so the wrinkling is real after a day of wearing them but that’s what irons are for right?
Same brand as the pants (Farm Rio) but an incredibly fun and colorful dress that Mallory almost bought to wear to a friend’s wedding! While it didn’t work for the style of wedding Mal was attending, it’s SUCH a cute dress and hopefully whoever bought it has been loving it. I think anyone who has tried on Farm Rio’s clothes can attest to the high quality. They just feel so good on.
AH! It’s been a minute since one of my links was #1 so this is an exciting Friday for ole Bunge:) But truly, this shirt is one of my new favorites because of how soft, cute, and AFFORDABLE it is. A perfect layering piece when it’s cold (I have my Paris trip to prove that) but can easily be worn on its own. 1000/10! It also comes in other colors.
Well, that’s it for today! Hope you enjoyed this little data review and if you bought something we really hope you are loving it.
Love you, mean it.
