On the I-can-shop-anywhere tip, last week as I was buying mosquito candles, lightbulbs and can of white lithium grease (husband request –don’t ask because I have no clue), I spotted something that vaguely felt like an exciting fashion purchase — this little Bucket Boss tool bag that I immediately snatched off the shelf, later removed the ugly rubber logo with a seam ripper, and proceeded to carry everywhere. It opens like a doctor bag so you can see everything easily, and it’s especially great at the beach — those are shells in the net pockets but also good for your phone, lip balm and keys. p.s. The dress is ancient Matta, those purple sandals are my new favorite Magnafieds and of course that’s the belt bag that I use every day — they only have black left but that’s pretty great too, especially come fall.
Does “age appropriate” apply to things like laptop covers? I say no, so I am thinking I need this fun quilted bubblegum pink number, which also comes in a more understatedly chic black or brown. Either way, it’s like a comforter for your computer!
I love all things Vivien Ramsay, including the designer herself! So of course along with the the underwear I posted last week, I am crazy about her fun and affordable old-school tube socks.
As you know I’ve been having an affair with New Wash Deep that I use with this scrub brush (so good even on days you’re not washing your hair — gives a great root lift!) and now I am adding Déshabillé (Undressed) which is a non-drying, saltless kind of beach spray to use on wet or dry hair, for perfectly tousled waves.
I’m always into a good diving watch for the beach and sprinkler parks, and this Timex is a pretty perfect specimen. Looks rich without costing a small fortune.
I love blank note cards! You can draw anything you want on them, and they’re perfect for thank you notes “written” by my four year old using our favorite colored pens. The recipients always appreciate them too — so much better than store bought.
