STYLE NOTES #4
A CASUAL JUMPSUIT I’VE BEEN EYEING
I saw this Madewell jumpsuit a few weeks ago when I was downtown shopping and have been thinking of it every since. I can appreciate a good jumpsuit and this one really stood out to me. With it’s wide legs, utility feel, and short sleeves, it felt new and fresh. Plus I love the color and fabric for summer. I’m thinking that if two weeks later it’s still on my mind, I should probably just go for it and get it. What do you think?
THE LIP BALM I USE EVERY NIGHT
If you know me you know I’m constantly applying Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1 throughout the entire day. I always have a tube with me, and when I don’t – sheer panic! But when it comes to my bedtime routine, I use a thicker lip balm that will stay put all night. My favorite is Glossier’s Balm Dotcom in Coconut flavor (smells like vacation!). I use it every night before going to bed, and my lips always wake up plump and moist.
A SIGNATURE SCENT FOR YOUR HOME
Even though I’m not much of a perfume girl (I hardly ever wear it), I love the idea of having a signature scent for my home. I can think of a few stores and hotels that have signature fragrances, and I always love being greeted by a lovely scent when I walk in them. Why not do the same thing with my own home? One of my absolute favorite candles has always been Diptque Baies, especially during spring/summer. So I’ve started burning it all around the apartment, and now anytime you step in the door you get a little hint of Baies – it makes me so happy!
HOW TO GET YOUR SWEATERS READY FOR STORAGE
It’s warming up in New York, which means I’m going to have to start switching out my closet. I’m such a clean freak that I typically send all my coats and sweaters to the dry cleaners before moving them to storage. But I recently discovered The Laundress Wool and Cashmere Shampoo, which means I don’t have to spend a fortune on dry cleaning. Now I can wash all my sweaters myself – such an easy way to save! Just follow the washing instructions, and make sure to flat dry your sweater so it maintains its shape.
The best button down shirts.
