One of the things that I’ve been meaning to get around to this year is re-decorating our bedroom. With the lease signed for another year, the space has been begging for a bit of a fresh update. If you follow me on snapchat (thesteelemaiden) than you already know I picked up a light sage-y green paint for a statement wall, but for the rest I’ve been pulling from my Pinterest to get an idea of what I’d like to keep and what I’d like to update. Below, my current plans, and stay tuned as I share the results!
One of my favorite things about traveling is the chance to pick up special items that are native to the places I’m visiting, things that were made by the very people who live there or one-of-a-kind treasures that I know no one else will have. The problem, of course, is that a far-flung vacation doesn’t happen every day. Enter Lesouque. A carefully curated boutique that’s launching mid-June and will be bringing you unique housewares, accessories and more, all made by independent designers across the world. I’m talking London to Austin, Copenhagen to Mumbai, Paris to Turkey.. and just about everywhere in between. Giving you access to the the things that you won’t find anywhere else. So when Lesouque offered me the first look at their goods I couldn’t wait to share (and admittedly I already grabbed that Turkish towel pictured above – handmade in Instanbul! – and does multi-duty as a picnic blanket, beach towel, scarf, blanket… options are kind of endless). For your own chance to be the first to grab some of these special items sign up through the link below. Since lot’s of these are one-of-a-kind you don’t want to miss it!
After an early Spring that kept my legs under wraps, I’m on a serious kick over skirts right now. There’s about a million good options out there right now.. but if you’re only going to get one (or, hey, why not make it 9), make sure it’s one of the above.
Now that the weather has turned, it’s the perfect time to add a few of the season’s key trends into your wardrobe. Lucky for us all – Shopbop is offering 25% off sitewide w/ code SPRING25 now through April 9 – below are my top picks!
For me, it always really feels like Spring once Easter is here. Tulips on every corner, pastel candies in every shop and – probably most excitedly – Spring dresses to be worn. The weather is having a hard time making the turn here in New York, but I’m a firm believer in the power of a great dress. So perhaps one of the above, will do the trick? And if Easter isn’t your thing – these options would be great for those spring wedding/ shower/ brunch/ birthday invites. Or, since all are at less than $100 you can pick one up simply to celebrate the return of bare legs. I’m torn between the all out femme of this one or the simplicity of this one.
