11 Cool Things To Buy Right Now


copper & blue


Ahhh! There are too many pretty things in the world! Here's a few of the prettiest--a.k.a. the tippy top things on my wish list right now. What's your favorite?


Rifle Paper Co Peonies (Copper) Wallpaper: I have been coveting this gorgeous paper for months now. Those metallic peonies? To die for. After seeing Dominique use it in what is truly the world's chicest baby's room (seriously, it's a must-see!), I've finally decided to pull the trigger and get it. I'll be using it to paper our teeny, tiny powder room, which right now, is a decidedly blah shade of beige. Can't wait to share the results!

J.Crew Merino Wool Tippi Sweater: As I mentioned here, this is probably my all-time favorite sweater. Here's why: It's lightweight so it works practically year round, it looks equally at home with jeans and with skirts, and the cut is really flattering. It also comes in basically every single color in the rainbow; this robin's-egg blue is calling my name right now. (Oh and it's under $80!)

Tory Burch Butterfly sunglasses: Love these! The frame shape is really flattering.

New Balance Precious Metals sneakers: The gray-bronze combo is so cool. And I love that the metallic is subtle, adding just the smallest touch of glitz.

Posen II clutch: I would carry this Deco-esque clutch pretty much anywhere--a wedding, a date night, a party. So pretty.

Ring: Ok, dream item alert! This delicate little sapphire-and-rose-gold ring is so gorgeous.

Coaster set: I need new ones and these are fun. (Note: They have other quotes/sayings available, too, if this one isn't your thing.)

Stila Magnificent Metals eyeshadow in Comex Copper: I still remember the day these shadows arrived in the office. We were all cooing and shrieking because they are so shiny--seriously metallic. Since beauty editors see it all, it's relatively rare that anything makes us go totally nuts, but these did. This warm shade is one of my favorites in the collection--it catches the light so beautifully and looks gorgeous on.

Michael Aram Bark vase: I actually got this vase in silver as a wedding gift and it's one of my favorite things. It looks sleek on a shelf and so pretty holding a bunch of blooms. And now this copper version is making me swoon.

J.Crew Short-Sleeve Sweater: Gotta love a cute top that isn't too tight on the tummy! I'd wear this one with skinny jeans and a cardigan now. Once the weather warms up, it would look really cute with a pair of faded, ripped boyfriend jeans and white sandals or Birks.

Copper pitcher: While entertaining recently, I realized that I desperately need a pretty, grown-up pitcher  to pull out when guests come over. This one is stunning, no?

Such pretty things! The copper pitcher is really cool. I used to drink out of a cup similar to this at my grandmas when I was little. It makes cold drinks extra cold.

Hummm....definitely a few items to add to the Valentine's wish list! Or is it too early to be thinking about Mother's Day?!
