Calf grazing pencil skirts, covered in paillettes and fringe. Paper thin sweaters with sayings inspired by vintage book covers. Dip dyed, ombré trench coats. Everything about Christopher Bailey‘s resort collection feels youthful, feminine and fresh . . . rain or shine. I mean, I don’t think I ever needed a pencil skirt as badly as I do now! And though the pieces from the collection is probably more than some of our pocketbooks can bare, at least you can walk away with a few styling points come fall.
Lately I’ve been toning down the costume jewelry in favor of fine and delicate earrings, necklaces and rings made of pure, solid gold. My collection is growing and quickly turning into an addiction. Enter designer Kathleen Whitaker, a favorite here at HonestlyWTF. We love the simplicity of her earrings – it’s amazing how such small and dainty pieces of gold can have such a strong impact . . . on the ear! It’s the kind of jewelry you’ll never want or need to take off. Ever. Trust us.
I’m not sure if I have ever seen a cooler campsite in my life. As a collector of of afghans and frequenter of Joshua Tree, I was immediately mesmerized by artist Léa Donnan tents made of salvaged crocheted blankets and then scattered across the Mojave Desert. Desert Appliqué was set up last year at the High Desert Test Site – I only wish I was around to see it in person!
I love all the details of this 17th-century farmhouse, which sits on the border of Umbria and Tuscany in central Italy. Hand painted murals, vintage designer fabrics, antique hardware and unique touches make up the charm and lived in comfort of the 10,000 square foot retreat. And that black and white tub?! Invite me over for a soak, won’t you?
