hello friends! i'm back with another intriguing look inside my shopping cart(s): the things i bought and what i left behind. today's list is definitely longer than my last post, but it's packed with some top-notch finds including this amazing embroidered circle bag from claire v. (below) and a really really good pair of white mary jane sides that have a cool heel. i've also include a few goodies for your home (clearly still inspired by my most recent post), because everyone needs a watermelon pillow to complete their living room, right?

go on, take a peek!


this embroidered purse is so lovely, and definitely on my wishlist -- i adore the Mexican floral design and bright emerald handle.

arguably the perfect leopard pumps. and therefore a wardrobe requirement (because #leopardgoeswitheverything).

i've gushed about boston designer artemis design co on this blog before, so you may already know i'm a big fan. i was thrilled when they teamed up with another fashion love of mine, madewell, for a cheery collection of slides. i love the stripes -- fun colors!

this may give you deja vu, but i wanted you to know that i really like this vase.

i hope you had a great fourth! after the holiday i found myself with some extra downtime, so i obviously spent it window shopping on the internet (one of my guilty pleasures). Every time i fall down the shopping rabbit hole, i have a habit of filling multiple shopping carts before abandoning them. I do stick to one golden rule when i go through one of these browsing binges though: i need to wait a few days before actually buying anything from my cart(s), and if i am still thinking about that dress, those sandals, or those earrings etc. etc. then i'll totally cave. does anyone else do that? i swear it helps me minimize my impulsive purchases. so while i wait to see what sticks, i thought it would be fun to share what i have in my cart right now: a few things that are still on my mind and some that i've already bought. go on, take a look!

just bought this dress from everlane and i like it even more than i thought i would. an ideal length (not too long, but also not awkward), easy fabric, stripes. i would definitely recommend grabbing one for summer!

this bag from apprvl is another purchase i recently made, and (omg) it is the perfect summer bag. i am obsessed. it falls perfectly, and holds more stuff than you'd think. seriously considering adding another color to my life (it also comes in pink, navy, and tan!).

lately, all i want to do is shop. need supply co is one of my favorite sites to browse -- it's incredibly curated, and the pieces always feel special and fresh. during one of my last online window-shopping sprees i stopped by need supply co, and found myself wanting everything, even things i usually don't think i'd like. for example, i never thought i'd have a pair of blue ruffle trousers on my radar, but now i need them in my life! so today i wanted to share some of the pieces i liked the most from need supply's new spring arrivals because it's too good not to (and let's be honest: this doesn't include the home section, that's a whole different story):

row 1

powder blue ruffle pant by msgm //   spaghetti strap dress by stelen  //   millennial pink "u" pouch by baggu

row 2

blue ostrich wedge sandals by Maryam Nassir Zadeh   //   red velour bra by baserange   //   beaded eye clutch by claire v.

row 3

polka dot ruffle top by stelen //   tweed pants by msgm   //   wood ball wristlet by building block

orange tassel earrings by paloma wool   //   pink acrylic arc mini clutch by cult gaia   //   phone home tee by collina strada


after a few gross days of humid, sticky weather, we're finally seeing fall-like temperatures here in Boston. and it's about time! i can't wait to start wearing boots, sweaters, and coats (my favorite). almost every year i'll treat myself to a new coat for the season -- since i wear a jacket every day for so many months, i like having a few options to brighten my mood and my mostly all-black winter uniform. this year i'm on the hunt for a cozy faux fur coat to add to the collection. there are so many options it's so hard to pick: do i go with something classic like stripes or leopard? or do i take the plunge and go for something over-the-top?

back talking about slides again! and trust me these are goooood.

if you're a shoe addict like me, then you need to check out Artemis Design Co. -- a local shoe and accessories designer from the South End in Boston. Artemis Design Co is most known for their kilim* loafers, smoking shoes, bags and more recently, slides that come in an array of colors and designs. aren't they beautiful? the company's founder, Millicent Armstrong, travels to Turkey to source damaged kilim that is transformed into her signature "flying carpet shoe". each shoe is made by hand in a Turkish artisan workshop in Istanbul -- they're truly a special item to own. i have a pair of the classic loafers, and am waiting for the right moment to grab a pair of these slides too. so many great colors for fall -- let me know your favorites, i love them all!

do you ever feel like wearing stripes every day? same. and why not? if you're a fellow stripe addict, you probably wear stripes on a daily basis already. even those who are shy of a bold print will happily reach for this classic design. i always seem to find new stripe pieces that i just have to have, so i thought i'd share a few of my favorite new finds. here are five summer dresses to add to your stripe collection -- each dress is different enough that you could wear them all in one week without anyone catching on:



day one: anthropologie   //   day two: shop mille   //   day three: reformation   //   day four: gorman   //   day five: zara


straw bags are all the rage this summer, and i'm fully embracing it. in fact, a straw bag is the perfect finishing touch to a casual summer dress, and is every beach goer's must-have accessory. these natural beauties have been on my wish list for the past few months, and i think i'm close to finding my perfect match. since there are so many great options out there, i wanted to share ten of my favorites -- from stripes, to fringe, and polka dots, i kind of want them all:




1. yellow with navy tote by Nannacay   /   2. stripe clutch from J.Crew   /   3. pom pom tote by Nannacay   /   4. zig-zags by Nannacay   /   5. rainbow clutch by Rebecca Minkoff   /   6. round straw bag from Bembien   /   7. classic stripes with fringe by Kayu   /   8. hello tote by Nannacay   /   10. belly bag from Bembien


out of all of my warm weather shoes, my favorites are the ones i can easily slip on and off -- not that i'd pass up a pair of strappy sandals, mind you. but this spring i'm completely on team mule. i recently bought this snakeskin pair from J.Crew, and it's left me wanting more! who knew i could fall so far for a pair of shoes (wink!). i'm pretty convinced they're a new closet staple, and why not? mules are comfy and basically effortless. plus there are literally hundreds of different options, which means you'll find a mule that fits your personal style. just another reason to love 'em.

shop my favorites below:


ten must-have mules for spring @themissprints


1. rhinestone hands by Gucci   /   2. embellished silver mules from ASOS   /   3. rainbow straps by Alice + Olivia   /   4. girly scallop trim by Chloe   /   5.  classic red mules from Mango   /   6. Marie Antoinette-inspired by Jeffrey Campbell from Nordstrom   /   7. pearl slides by Stuart Weitzman /   8. feather slides by Alexander Wang   /   9. striped heels by Loeffler Randall   /   10. snakeskin slippers by J.Crew


i have been shopping too. much. lately. i think it's the promise of spring, or because i'm ready to go on a vacation -- either way, i've been window-shopping like it's my job. thankfully, my wish list is far longer than the list of items that i actually end up buying and keeping (phew!). always scheming my next purchase, i suppose.

speaking of: Anthropologie has so many great things right now, that it was worth a blog post. i'm talking about statement earrings, embroidered prints, a jumpsuit i need and some really good shoes -- shop what i'm eyeballing below, and let me know your favorites!

a gal's closet needs a great denim jacket. i love the white leopard embroidery on this option.

lots of embroidered details in Anthro's new arrivals, including this blouse with red embroidery.

raw hemmed jeans look extra cool with a cutout detail. 

striped pants for beach days.

these are pure magic: satin princess sandals with a floral gemstone.


meet my must have accessory this season: the statement earring. i talked about my new obsession with earrings last month, and since then, i have added quite a few to my wishlist.
