Tretorn Leather and Velvet Sneakers, $85
I went to the mall this weekend to exchange some jeans and as I was walking out, these shoes stopped me dead in my tracks. I’d never heard of Tretorn sneakers before, but they’re now the only ones I want to wear for the rest of my life (only slight exaggeration). I love how retro they are, almost like bowling shoes. The little dark blue velvet detail is what sold me, though.
Olly Goodbye Stress Gummies, $14
Maybe it’s a placebo effect, maybe it’s Maybelline, or maybe these de-stress gummies really work! Made with GABA and L-Theanine, these gummy vitamins (that taste like strawberry lemonade) are potent (Olly claims that they start working in 30-60 minutes). For $14, this tub will last you longer than a bottle of wine (and it’s probably slightly healthier, too).
Flirt x Kajal Eyeliner Rock-n-Rebel, $16
I only recently started wearing liquid eyeliner — since 7th grade, I was a pencil liner loyalist. While liquid liner tends to stay put better (especially in the summer), this pencil (which is thick, and Crayon-like, yet easy to use) is just as smudge-proof. From 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., this liner left no black smears behind, which is impressive. The formula is super rich and creamy, and the black is an intense black. If you’re looking to channel Brigitte Bardot, this eyeliner is your BFF.
Kip & Co Swanette Pink Blanket, $79
I recently discovered Kip & Co, a Melbourne-based lifestyle company. And oh, what a delightful discovery it was. They’ve got scads of fun, kicky home goods — but right now I am swooning over this pink swan blanket. It makes me want to pack a sandwich and find the nearest park, pronto.
Whistles Strappy Black Dress, $112.27 (was $124.09)
I love the simplicity of this dress. It’s a classic LBD — but with an extra dose of zest, thanks to a couple well-placed cutouts. And it’s on sale!
Gap Leopard Collar Utility Jacket, $79 (was $98)
I’m not really a leopard girl; I rarely wear the print. But this jacket has juuust the right amount of leopard. Plus, the collar is detachable. So if I’m not feelin’ it, I can just snap it off.
