The February Edit

With spring right around the corner and color pops starting to appear in the stores, I'm thinking of the things that can help get us in the mood and ready for the shift. Whether it's styling your wardrobe, or throughout your home, there's something for everyone to dip a toe in the season to come. And Easter is just over a month away too...

A great way to get in sync with spring is to think of the colors that appear in nature. I’ve been finding some really beautiful sweaters lately that come in flattering colors that add just the right amount of pop to an outfit. A few of my favorites are the cashmere Imogen Jumper in Freesia, the Tova Sweater in ivory, the Australie Pullover in rose, and the Rib Mock Neck Sweater in moss. To layer on a lightweight coat, a netural grey is very versatile and I love the tried and true Mai Wrap style. For a lightweight nylon jacket, the Reversible Classic from Herno in light grey and pale blue is easy to style with color. A trouser style jean is good for many looks, whether casual or dressy and I’m liking the Mitchell Jean from Nili Lotan — the Queen of the best pant and jean fits. I also love the Shon Pant she makes in our new color, midnight blue. It’s always a good idea to have a dress that evokes the lighter, breezier days of spring, and Easter celebrations, and this Volga Dress is perfect. It can be worn as an off-the-shoulder dress or with the shoulders covered. It’s a real beauty. 

For accessories, there are so many ways to bring in color or a lighter version of what you’ve had on repeat all winter. For starters the V-Star Sneakers in red are an easy pop if your go-to outfits are black or darker shades. And they’ll look great with white in the summer. Another idea with the same versatility is the Jerry Loafer in a soft creamy leather and durable rubber sole. Jewelry can brighten wintery shades and add color. The Silia Earrings just arrived with striking ammonite and yellow calcite stones in a gold plated setting. I also love the stamped gold plated Wide Bangle which gives a nod to summers in Greece. Looking for something more delicate? I love the Moss Aquamarine Stone Cuff from Mary MacGill. The whisper weight cashmere Zephyr Scarf is perfect for year round but especially when you’re ready to ditch your heavier scarves. And for some cheery color, I love the Jala Scarf. Sunglasses will need dusting off and if you’re ready for something new, the MP-2 is a shape that suits all faces and all occasions. And, lastly, when you’re ready to give the knee high or shearling lined boots a break, a new Chelsea Boot has us all drooling. It’s the perfect leather, toe shape and heel height and is built to wear on repeat. 

At home, there’s opportunity at every corner to shed a little light and celebrate the anticipation of a new season. And with Easter just over a month away, these cute little Bunny Statues are sure to raise a smile. Add them to place settings or on a shelf or a mantle, or even tucked under a plant in the garden. Floral scents evoke the shift into spring and the Madurai Candle from Trudon have intoxicating notes of jasmine and ylang ylang. Cream Rope Twist Candles for the dinner table are a classic and pair well with our Misty Rose Stone Jug napkins. Set your plates on these round Fringe Placemats for some spring-like texture. Give that outdoor furniture a wipe and add our beautiful DIANI x Tensira Tufted Chair Cushions and matching Round Table Cloth (we also have rectangular). For those of you who like to eat in season produce, Six Seasons is a great cookbook to inspire dishes that utilize what’s on hand for the season you’re in. And if salads are your thing, this gorgeous Spalted Maple Oval bowl is perfection for serving. 

I'm gearing up for a buying trip to New York and Paris and by the time I get back, I'm going to be more than ready for all things spring, so, if you're anything like me, I'm already planning and prepping for warmer, drier days ahead. Happy February, friends!

Sending lots of love,
