Pretty Peplum

I picked up a peplum shirt this weekend (this one to be exact). It's a surprisingly versatile piece that adds glamor to an office-appropriate pencil skirt and polish to a pair of shorts on the weekend. Here are a few others that I adore:

For Women | For Men

For years I tried to love wine. I tired all sorts of reds, whites and roses, trying to appreciate the complex notes. I've basically given up. But, really, I've just given in to my true preference: microbrews. And every good beer needs a good bottle opener to accompany it. I'm fond of the vintage-esque mermaid, but a gentleman might prefer something a little less girly and a little more architectural.

Splurge or Save?

As much as I love Kate Spade, I'm not sure I could justify full price for the patent Vonya sandals at $225 when this pair from Caravan* is a dead ringer for just $68.93.

*If you're smitten with mint, there's a pair available in that hue for $98.48

On Bedknobs & Baubles: a macaron trinket box and a breakfast treat.
