Five things on my radar this month.
Birkenstocks When Birks became trendy again, I swore on everything holy that I would never wear them. Then I saw a pair at Madewell that I couldn’t stop thinking about. Now I’m a total convert–even though they’re pure white, mine somehow manage to stay totally clean, and they’re incredibly comfortable, which is a huge plus since I hurt my heel in a freak accident in July and have had to wear them almost every day since. Plus, they look cute with jeans and striped T-shirt.
Suite One Studio plates I’ve admired Suite One Studio‘s beautiful ceramics for a loooong time, and these pink plates with gold rims top my wish list. So pretty. Maybe something to register for…
Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation I have very sensitive, very pale skin, which means the slightest variation in routine makes me red and itchy and I have to stick to as natural a skincare routine as possible. I’ve been loyal to Bare Minerals’ foundation for years, but after reading some glowing reviews of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay line, I decided to get a sample of the foundation from Sephora and see how it worked. In short: It’s amazing and I’m a convert. Can’t recommend this product enough.
Tortoiseshell hair I love this trend. It’s a blend of three or more hair colors focusing on golden tones with lots of warmth. Ever since an unfortunate experiment with highlights a few years back, I’ve kept my hair its normal dark-brown shade–but this look, combined with the fact that my hairdresser recommended balyage to me recently, has me tempted to switch it up.
Moroccan carpets Last year I bought a Moroccan-inspired carpet for our living room and I love it. Now I’m on the hunt for a big, colorful one for our bedroom, and the ones from Coco Carpets totally fit the bill. They’re so fun.
P.S. July’s monthly edit.
