back in full force

I am officially home in Washington. It's so comforting to see my family and sleep in my own bed! I had lots to catch up on, but new bags at Spool No. 72 seemed like the most important, of course.

I introduced all of you to this Washington-based retailer awhile ago, but they are still one of my favorites for quirky, vintage pieces.


I'm a clutch girl, and can definitely visualize these two in my summer wardrobe. Raffia envelope clutch: paired with blue sundress and floppy hat. Carved leather clutch: amazing standout piece with a basic tee and ankle jeans!

Most of all, I love how these pieces fit in with Topshop's newest Swedish Summer trend...


The happy prints and delicate trim provide perfect contrast for the clean-cut shorts and overalls. Topshop's styling is always exquisite, and this may be one of my favorite looks yet. Browsing email newsletters is so inspiring and a great way to see how to wear trends.

Also, Kristi of Accio Hagrid was the Karen Kane giveaway winner and finally got to spend her $200 gift card! I received a few photos of some looks she tried, and here they are!


So glad she had fun. Thanks so much again to Karen Kane, and congratulations to Kristi -- have a great Wednesday!
