What a wonderful afternoon!  Such a joy to partner with AERIN–the brand, the team, the boutique and of course the namesake herself was everything we anticipated and more.  It was a bit of a chilly, damp and grey day…ideal for shopping.  The kids were keen on the face painting and sweet treats; and customers really loved the curated collection, shopping for anyone and everyone little in their life.  Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and those who called in from far and wide – we are so grateful!  We look forward to another adventure soon.  xx, CC

One of summer’s highlights are pool parties.  The best kind of outfit for this ocassion is one that transitions from party-time to water play with ease.  We are smitten with Sunuva’s entire line of sun-protectant swimwear and clothing. The suit and swim shorts work perfectly with a lovely dress like Printebebe’s swirl dress or with a Panama shirt from Velveteen.  Modern Queen Kids’ necklace is the ultimate finishing touch to this look (or any other for that matter!).—CC

I must share with you one of my most favorite baby gifts ever, and the ultimate piece de resistance (say with deep French accent) in my baby boy’s nursery.  This breathtaking one-of-a-kind swan made of white cotton gauze looms over the changing table and is truly the centerpiece of the room.  The creator and artist behind this “soft sculpture” is Tamar Mogendorff, and her pieces are nothing short of spectacular.  Each design embodies the dreamy whimsical nature of childhood in a beautifully artistic way.  I can’t say enough about her art–a true must-have in any child’s room.  xx, Christin

At long last…the start of summer is here! This month we are making the transition to a more laid-back vibe for our personal style.  Easy, breezy dressing made easy with pieces like an AYR tunic and Mark D. Sikes skirt.  It also means effortless, bare-faced make-up with AERIN lip and cheek and simple jewelry like this Carolina Bucci friendship bracelet.  Of course summer means a busy social schedule and plenty of entertaining, so to help you stay organized, we love this Smythson book for inspiration ideas and menu planning.  Wolffer Vineyard happens to be one of our favorite spots and their Summer in a Bottle is not only a fab bottle of rosé, but comes in the most gorgeous bottle (perfect for a gift).  So, cheers to warmer days ahead.—CC
