Coats With Character

I feel like Winter down South is always so finicky. One day it’s warm, the next day you’re frozen! While I generally like the more temperate weather down here, I definitely miss being able to wear my extensive coat collection up North. I truly think a gorgeous coat can make an outfit! And while I’ve put away my goose-down coat for quite some time, I’m still interested in coats with character.

I recently purchased this Theory peacoat, which is actually quite thin and appropriate for the Atlanta weather. It has a plaid pattern and shearling collar that makes it unique. I saw it in the window of Theory and earmarked it on my mental lust-list for when it went on sale. So as soon as the price dropped, I scooped it up. The good news is that you can too!  

Besides this recent coat purchase, I’ve also been eyeing the plaid coats below!

Pajama Party

For better or worse, this year we’ve spent so much more time at home in comfy clothes. And one of the ways I’ve felt like I could still dress up was to wear nice loungewear and pajamas. So after years of lusting after different colors, I finally pulled the trigger on a set of Party Pajamas from Sleeper after seeing their exclusive pink on pink color-way for Net a Porter. I’m actually glad I didn’t buy a set before, because the latest iterations have removable feathers for easier cleaning! 

I’m obsessed with the gorgeous shade of bubble gum that I couldn’t wait to wear for a weekend movie night with a bottle of champagne. And since it’s a pajama party, I’m sharing some of my other favorite picks for luxurious sleepwear!

Sleeper: While I wouldn’t trade my pink for another color, I’m also eyeing the lilac set which is just as gorgeous and perfect for Spring!


Morgan Lane: I love the combination of satin and the bold green stripe. It just reads classic pajama to me. Also I think Gigi Hadid has these, and if they’re good enough for a supermodel. Then they’re good enough for me! 

La PerlaJust a classy and luxe pair of silk pajamas for a more minimal vibe. The rich beige color is to die for!

J.Crew: similar to my pink on pink set, these cotton pjs are more low maintenance but still bring the girly fun. I might have to get these next!

Olivia von Halle: I love this designer’s whimsical prints, and this blue satin is just too gorgeous.

Sweet dreams dolls!

One of the joys of blogging is discovering new brands to add to your wardrobe. One such brand for me is Mi Golondrina. This female founded company began with a mission to showcase Mexican heritage in fashion. The founder wanted to preserve the tradition of hand embroidery and also empower the talented Mexican artisans. Today Mi Golondrina elevates the indigenous skill of these artisans, and also ensures to pay fair wages for their art. I love this history, commitment to the founders heritage, and the gorgeous designs and skills that go into every piece.

I’m so honored to partner with Mi Golondrina to showcase three styles that caught my eye for Spring/Summer. First, their Flores collection launches today and features colorful embroidery that does the collection’s name proud. I opted for a short dress that I paired with red hot heels! I loved this dress so much, I also had to have it in a crisp white. We all know the white dress is the cornerstone of any warm-weather wardrobe. I paired that dress with my favorite straw hat, clutch and espadrilles to finish the look. Last but not least, I was so drawn to the brand’s Olivia dress with its ruffled collar and sleeves. It’s so feminine and a beautiful addition to my wardrobe. I love the simple blue and white color story. In addition to the styles I’m wearing, I’m also obsessed with the Brand’s Valentines collection, now live on their site. Every dress is thick, doesn’t wrinkle easily, and you can truly feel the quality of the fabric, not to mention the gorgeous workmanship of the embroidery! The dresses, tops and skirts come in a never-ending rainbow of colors, so you can truly find one to match your personality and taste. You can find Mi Golondrina’s latest collection at the link below!
