Lately I’m loving J.Crew’s “in good company” partnerships. Some are classics reinterpreted like these gold Sperrys
, and others are brands like Lemlem
that I’m all too happy to be introduced to. When I spotted the dress on the cover of the June catalogue, I immediately flipped through to get more info. Turns out it’s part of J.Crew’s partnership with Lemlem
, a phenomenal brand founded by supermodel and Goodwill Ambassador, Liya Kebede. Liya founded Lemlem (which means “to bloom” in Ahmaric) as a way to help Ethiopian women escape poverty and to preserve the tradition of weaving. I’m all for shopping for a good cause, especially when the products are this gorgeous!
Hope you all had a GREAT weekend! Mine was spent organizing/decorating the new condo, dealing with a flat tire (how did I get 3 nails in it?!), lounging by the pool and grilling.
P.S A big thank you as always for your sweet comments, they really do make my day!
Pools across D.C are opening this weekend I thought it would only be fitting to share some photos to help us get ready for the season. Fortunately, I had to look no further than the master photographer of the good life, Slim Aarons, to find some bathing beauties to share. I’m off to pack up my pool bag and bask in the sun–with SPF of course!
HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!
I’ve spent the past few nights moving and unpacking boxes into the wee hours of the morning, dealing with a toilet that decided to break the night we moved in, and trying to keep my sanity while our puppy becomes ever more impatient with the interruption in his doggie park schedule. Needless to say, I’m completely exhausted. I’m taking tonight to get organized and catch up on sleep! I apologize for the lack of posts and for not being able to get over to your lovely blogs and comment as much as I would like to. I promise I’ll be back tomorrow refreshed and with some less lame posts! xx
