In the past year, Banana Republic has really had an amazing rebirth! I am finding myself more and more checking out their new arrivals. When I saw some of their best sellers for spring I had to share them with you. All of the dresses below are featured on my wishlist and I am obsessed with the denim shirt. I hope you enjoy the selections. It was so hard to choose favorites!!! Happy Shopping and Bon Weekend!!!
I am so excited to share the Reinstein Ross curated Valentine’s Day collection. I have been working with this brand for a short time and have fell in love with all of their pieces. I have a gorgeous south sea pendant that I wear everyday. This signature design features a brilliant white south sea pearl. Tania is named for its distinctive cluster of three granules – it’s an element that is part of the Reinstein Ross design vocabulary and often incorporated to add some delicate dimension. I have not taken it off since the day I put it on. You can see this beatuiful look in the image below. Whats even more wonderful was that this pearl was handmade in the Reinstein Ross New York City design atelier & workshop. Read more about the living workshop HERE.
Reinstein Ross does an incredible job of stacking and layering. I have included a video that I filmed with Sarah Blair, the CEO and Jo Shin, Head of Creative for the company. Take a few minutes to listen to their suggestions about creating the perfect layer!

I recently visited the Palm Habor boutique on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. The shop is full of artfully curated gifts, home décor, apparel, and accessories, for life’s everyday occasions and events. I find it one of the best shops in the Palm Beach area.

We’re heading headfirst into winter. Fall has been fun, filled with pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween festivities, but we’re beginning to experience the first signs of winter and the Christmas season. The wind is begin to blow harder. The temperature is dropping. We’re beginning to experience more rain, which will soon become sleet and snow. The mornings are getting frosty. This means meany things. It means many of us are going to begin spending more time indoors and that we’re going to start getting ready for the festive season ahead. One area of your life you’re going to need to turn your focus to – in order to stay warm and comfortable – is your clothing. Now is the best time to start building your winter wardrobe. Here are some suggestions to fuel you along the way!
First things first, let’s consider loungewear. As we briefly mentioned above, you’re probably going to spend more time indoors now that the winter is coming around, so it’s good to have plenty of comfortable wear to settle down in for the months ahead. Loungewear has really taken off as a category of clothing since the pandemic, as people began to search for comfortable clothes that were still more presentable than pyjamas. Browse a range of tracksuits, leggings and hoodie combos and more. You may also want to grab some fluffy socks and cosy slippers for your feet. These are particularly beneficial if you have a lot of wooden or tiled flooring in your home, which can be cold in the mornings.
Hats, Gloves and Scarves
Hats, gloves and scarves are going to become essential for times when you venture out and about. These protect some of the areas of your body where heat is most likely to escape and where the wind and cold weather is most likely to hit. You lose a lot of heat from your head and your hands, which is why hats and scarves are so important. Scarves protect your neck from cold and harsh winds. There are countless styles out there, so start your search at https://paisleygraceboutique.com/ to find something that ticks all of your boxes.
Winter coats tend to be a more costly investment, but they are essential and can really help to keep your warm when the temperatures drop. It’s good to choose a couple, ensuring that they are quality to last the test of time. One coat made from heavy, cosy fabrics tends to be a good idea. Another that is waterproof, for use in rain and storms, is recommended too. Another option that many people seem to enjoy at the moment is a puffer coat, which insulates but is lightweight and often waterproof.
You lose a lot of heat through your feet, so you want to keep this in with boots. Boots should also be waterproof to ensure that your feet stay nice and dry in the rain or when walking through puddles. Also look for options with good grip, which helps in the frost and snow.
These winter essentials will serve you well in the upcoming months, so make sure to find them sooner rather than later to get maximum use out of them!
