ADVICE / 59

here are some links today that you hopefully love!

links_2

ok before you start clicking away, here’s a little tip in case you didn’t know. hold down the command key on your keyboard when you click the links and they will all open in a new window. i usually go through and open a bunch and then go through them. hit command W when you want to close that tab. we are all about shortcuts around here, give them a shot! here’s some combined links from katie and i this week…

cool office accessories: i’m sure you’ve checked out kate spade new york’s new brand saturday by now. i bought the circle sticky notesdays of the week pencils and these colorful nesting bowls. the shapes are so nice and clean. they’re lookin real nice on my desk right now. how about this wooden geometric keepsake box? or this cute striped laptop bag (that also supports a good cause!) this jonathan adler desk lamp just arrived and it is sharp! last but not least, how about this bright red accent chair for your office?

new find: have you heard of hukkster? a coworker of mine just introduced me to it and i’ve been… hukking? all day, every day. it’s a free service that you use to email you when products you like go on sale. right now you can only be alerted when it goes on sale but eventually you’ll be able to put in your size and color too. also, have you heard of mailbox? you have to wait in line once you download it (it takes about 2 weeks) but the app IS pretty awesome for organizing your gmail. you can easily categorize with just a few clicks. no more crazy inbox numbers. i was playing with it this morning and it seems like it’s only for gmail (which is kind of a bummer if that’s true, considering that’s not all i use.)

latest inspiration: kate spade new york is celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. to celebrate they came out with a beautiful coffee table book. two of my dear friends wrote and designed the book and i’m so proud of them. each chapter is about something that inspires the brand. there are charming facts sprinkled throughout the book and drool worthy imagery sure to get your creative brain going. this flickr photostream is also pretty amazing! (how cool is this!)

wearing to work: it’s just starting to feel like spring and almost summer here in new york. i’ve packed away the puffer and boots and am trading it in for this lighter jacket and these sandals. in los angeles, it’s been bright and sunny…this yellow lace madewell top is the perfect shirt for work. it’s more professional for a meeting than just a basic tee, but just as quick and easy. i’m also loving this perfect hat!

    The Flikr photostream is pretty amazing. The colours and shapes in the photographs look good on their own or in a group. Thanks for the share!

    [...] But I haven’t just been thinking of myself! My mom loves to wear lace tops with skirts to work — they’ve gotta be comfy and simple like throwing on a t-shirt but chic enough to look like a smarty pants at the office. I got her two from Banana Republic, though I’ve also been swooning over this one from Madewell (found via DesignLoveFest). [...]
