shop picks: steven alan

shop picks // steven alan // sarah sherman samuelI have a real soft spot for shop owners/curators that also branch out and create their own line (my heart will always be with product).  Steven Alan did just that and his namesake clothing line is a beautiful mix of simplicity and form. The SA shops are also still curated with unique designers that share a similar aesthetic and it is so easy to fall in love with each piece. Here are my top picks…

Poplin Dress  // Copper Bowl // Myra Mule // Natural Tote // Triangle Earrings // Fringe Blanket // Copper Candleholder // Panel Dress // Felt Coaster // Shinola Notebook // Clare V. Clutch // Coffee Cup 

 

My gift tree

wrapped gifts smitten studioThis year I infused a little fashion into my gift wrapping. Gold, herringbone, and leopard print took center stage in this present tree.

Meanwhile… I have already officially lost track of what day it is… which is the BEST feeling. We made it to my parents in Michigan a few days ago, our bags packed with presents, and finally this morning we woke up to a fresh white blanket of snow. I love the holidays.
