Items that make life just a little easier are always at the top of our list and this week’s top picks do just that. Everyone needs that perfect black sweater in their closet, not to mention a way to check makeup and keep some cash on hand easily. We could all use some good, restful sleep and an easy way to write a note (and not have to search everywhere for the matching envelope). And cashmere joggers…well just because.
Amy: We recently added these gorgeous letter writing sets to our shelves. Each set comes in a beautifully designed box that includes 10 sheets of paper in four different designs, 40 matching envelopes and 50 assorted stickers and labels. It’s a beautiful assortment to gift or to keep on hand for those days you feel the urge to catch up on your correspondence. Available in three designs: art deco, maps, and natural history. (Available at Penny Post, $29.99)
Angela: The Kitsch silk sleep mask is stylish and functional. The masks are a great gift…even if the recipient is yourself. (Available at Bellacara, $34)
Celeste: The ultimate splurge: cashmere joggers. Although I plan on wearing mine next to the fire in January, they can actually be dressed up for a cold evening out. (Available at Kiskadee, $328)
Elizabeth: Maybe it is just me but I always wish I could run out to my kids games or to walk the dog and just have my credit card or some cash but I don’t have a pocket. I never seem to have a pocket when I need one. I also always need to make sure there is not red wine or a purple smoothie on my mouth (let’s be real, I am more worried about grape stains than blueberries). So, when I found iDecoz at market it solved both my problems. Cute mirrors and a cute pocket for my phone. (Available at The Shoe Hive, Square Mirror and Phone Pocket, $10 each)
Ali: There’s been a lot of hype around sweaters and “sweata weatha” (or the lack there of)! TSALT just received a ton of sweaters – something along the lines of 80 sweaters last week. The entire order was from Autumn Cashmere, which I’ve covered in the past, but now it’s here! Some are funky and fab, but let’s stick to the basics, shall we? One of my favorites is this boxy v-neck black sweater that perfectly pairs with the cropped straight leg jean trend, along with a black booty (there are some amazing options over at The Shoe Hive, btw). Check it out…it’s perfection! (Available at TSALT, $363)
