This + That

1 // I can’t get enough of Elle Fanning’s new Tiffany campaign! Tiffany hasn’t really been on my radar since the heart charm necklace/bracelet trend of the early-aughts, but this got me excited about the thought of receiving a little blue box all over again.

2 // I spied these $279 painted jeans on Pinterest, and now I’m itching to paint some white daisies on an old pair of denim shorts for a cute summertime DIY.

3 // Speaking of Pinterest, while scrolling through some of my old boards this weekend, I rediscovered Love & Zest’s recipe for soft baked oatmeal chocolate chip bars. I made them once and they were ahh-mazing, so it was a good reminder to whip up another batch soon.

4 // My sweet friend, Nicole, started a new interior design account on Instagram (@nicoleroedesign). If you’re into family-functional design, DIYs and a happy, colorful home, definitely give her a follow. I’ve always loved Nicole’s style and design aesthetic, so I’m excited to see where she takes it!

5 // I’m always on the hunt for new blogs to add to my reader, and Grace at The Stripe just rounded up her daily must-reads for for fashion and lifestyle inspiration.

6 // Bill Gates shared 5 books we should all read this summer that tackle big questions: “What makes a genius tick? Why do bad things happen to good people? Where does humanity come from, and where are we headed?” Despite the heavy themes, Gates says, ““All these books are fun to read, and most of them are pretty short.” I’m in!

7 // The Everygirl profiled the CEO of Farmgirl Flowers, Christina Stemble. I’m so inspired by her approach to entrepreneurship, and even if you don’t own a business or work with flowers every day, there’s plenty to learn from her story! Quote of the piece: “The best companies to me are the ones that aren’t just ones I’d want to buy from, but ones I’d want to work at or sell to — so that’s what I’m trying to build.”

8 // I ordered a pair of Everlane kick crop jeans for the summer, and I’m not-so-patiently awaiting their arrival.(I’m also saving up for a pair of their red leather Day Heels to wear with them.) After years of exclusively purchasing/wearing dark denim, I’m currently crushing on throwback styles in lighter washes for the season.

9 // This all-natural drugstore body wash is a summertime staple in our house: it clears up seasonal body breakouts caused by heat, humidity, and sunscreen without making skin dry or itchy. Following it up with this super-nourishing body oil keeps over-exposed summer skin healed, hydrated and balanced.

10 // We all know daily SPF is an essential component of an anti-aging skin care routine, but finding a formula that works well under makeup (i.e., isn’t thick, heavy or greasy, or too drying on the skin) and doesn’t cause breakouts or irritation is a challenge. If you’re willing to splurge, I highly recommend Tatcha Silken Pore Perfecting Broad Spectrum SPF 35, which functions like an invisible sunscreen and skin-smoothing primer in one step. I use it every day I leave the house, and will report back on how long the bottle lasts for an estimated cost-per-use breakdown.
