Tucked away above Marrakesh’s bustling medina is a quaint and outrageously stunning oasis, Riad Yasmine. With just 7 rooms, this traditional Moroccan home boasts incredible views of the Atlas Mountains from its spacious rooftop terrace and also has one of the most photogenic plunge pools in the world. I mean, how beautiful is that emerald green tile? And those bed-sized loungers? Insert me here . . .
It think we can all admit that the strap of handbag is never the star. Model Caterina Ravaglia and fashion consultant Federico Brighi are changing that sad fact with their collection of luxe leather purse straps. Kate Cate‘s straps, which are adorned with silver conchos, leather fringe and embroidered patterns, can be attached to just about any bag with a pair of trigger snaps. It’s amazing how they can instantly add that edgy chic factor to your average “it” bag. Love.
There’s something so beautifully poetic about All Roads’ silk tassels that I’m desperately trying to justify enough reasons to purchase them in every dreamy, soft hued color. I also have a compulsive need to run my hands through the shiny silk threads over and over again. So it’s without question that I must hoard all the silk tassels to use as curtain tie backs, door tags and even simply clustered to hang together on a wall.
I’m loving Cult Gaia‘s latest iterations of their ubiquitous, vintage inspired bamboo bag. The LA cult label has recently launched acrylic versions in black, malachite (my favorite!) and white mother of pearl. They’ve also introduced a barrel-like bamboo bag that completely collapses flat – perfect to pack in that beach bound carry on!
I first fell in love with Ukrainian based loungewear line Sleeper last spring. I mean, any label that designs pajama sets and off the shoulder dresses, that are perfectly acceptable to be worn from bed to beach, is a score in this sleep deprived mama’s playbook. Sleeper’s latest collection of silk trimmed linen robes and two piece linen short suits are a dreamy addition and a must have for any upcoming summer getaways. And if only they came with an uninterrupted 8 hours of shut eye . . .
