Best of The Week: 8/28/20

I am trying not to think about the fact that it’s ALMOST SEPTEMBER, but then I stumbled across a perfectly styled look like this, comprised of a creamy cropped little puffer, a cozy-luxe sweater, matching joggers and chic vegan “croc” loafers that kind of takes the sting out of the whole fall-is-coming thing.

I have been thinking about these perfect wooden measuring spoons since I laid eyes on them a few days ago at the always inspiring Love, Adorned in Amagansett. Who knew a cooking tool could be so streamlined and chic? 

I wrote about Ursa Major’s Fantastic Face Wash when I was lucky enough a score a sample a couple of months ago. Now I have a whole bottle and actually cannot wait to wash my face every night (used to feel more like a chore!) I love the smell and light lather and the fact that it has gentle exfoliating properties so my skin looks and feels super after. I am slowly trying the whole line, so stay tuned!

I’m excited that the Met Store has partnered with my favorite plant source, The Sill, to launch “The Met 150 Edit,” a multi-designer capsule collection that commemorates The Met’s 150th anniversary (others include Catbird, Estee Lauder and Baggu, so they’re in perfect company) There are limited-edition earthenware planters and message pops inspired by The Met, its signature red, Precolumbian pottery, and Vincent van Gogh. All items will be available at The Met Store website and The Sill. I think this “Vincent Van Grow” stick is pretty darn cute, and all proceeds from the collection will support the Met’s mission and vital education programs — since museums need more support now than ever, it’s a win win! 

I am loving this cute wrap top from Athleta to wear for my indoor yoga workouts. Just a nice change from the usual bra top, don’t you think? And here’s the matching high-waist legging in case you were wondering.

I picked up a box of old-school Bazooka the other day — a nice comforting distraction/guilty pleasure. And yes, I read the comics and take the fortunes very seriously — ha.

I normally don’t go for a short-sleeved sweater, but this one is a great transitional piece that can be worn almost like a poncho over long sleeved tops.

It’s going to be blanket-on-the-couch time soon, and this chic cotton gauze one would work at the beachh now and for cozy TV -watching a bit later.

I just had a mani-pedi for the first time in about 6 months at Sag Mane in Sag Harbor (so clean and only one person at a time). Owner Leslie Slavens carries the whole eco Côte line, and used this Smoothing Base on me. It made my nails look clean and just ever so slightly polished (kind of like when you have them buffed), and I love it in lieu of color.

  1. Love Côte polish! If you like the buffed nails look, I just started this “system” by Bare Hands and I am already not sure how I’m ever going to be without it. The magic glass file/buffer makes your nails so shiny and the Citrine oil smells so good.
    The whole thing comes in a chic little case and costs $40. Totally worth every penny when you’re like me and a manicure lasts 12 hours before getting wrecked.

    (Not paid for this BTW, just a woman obsessed.)

  2. Great post today! Just ordered the Cote Smoothing Base and the Ursa Major Face Wash (got a discount and free ship. Who doesn’t love free shipping?!?!) Unfortunately, the cotton gauze blanket is that wonderful match your eyes brown was sold out. (sad face)

  3. I won a set of Ursa Major a few years ago and gave it to my daughter, who loved it and continues to purchase it. She’s crazy about the face wash and the balm.

    *Sag Mane has a space in Amagansett?
