bri and i are both big fans of los angeles jewelry designer annie costello brown. i’ve received several pairs of her earrings for birthdays and christmas over the years and i love them. i noticed that all of the styles on need supply are currently on sale. they make a great gift for yourself or someone you love. and surprisingly, they aren’t heavy! they are perfect for a night out or i can wear them all day without pain. here are some favorites. i really love the blue and green ones. i wear a lot of neutrals so they really pop. but the silver and gold is also really timeless and versatile. the earrings above are available here in silver.

we are long time fans of ace & jig and there is so much to love about their latest collection. the colors, textiles, styling, models, it’s all so beautiful. i’m in love with this duster! they are an incredible female owned, ethically sourced and made company to support if you have the means. and if not, you can get joy just from looking at their colorful instagram. they are currently offering 15% off site wide with code ACEANDJIGJOY. – joanie

such a pretty shade of orange and love that this jumpsuit can be worn with layers under or over it which makes it appropriate for all seasons.

this is something so chic about a duster, and they are extremely versatile. i’ve drawn to cozy layers right now as we all stay inside and this is the perfect housecoat.

every textile this dress comes in is beautiful. especially the cantaloupe.

you know i have a weakness for madewell and my sister alerted me to their current 40% off sale. i really don’t buy anything from them unless it’s on sale and many of their items are sale on top of sale right now. below are some  favorites. i like to try to stick to buying more classic items from them like sweatshirts, button ups, perfectly lightweight cardigans, these pleated linen shorts, etc. they also have some fun 90’s feeling pieces right now like this wrap dress and top in the prettiest floral print

plaid ruffle top – this top feels a little like doen. the plaid feels fresh as it’s in summer colors, a nice departure for spring and summer.

cardigan sweater – cardigans are my go-to summer outerwear. you can easily pack them in your beach bag and throw them on over your swimsuit or sundress as the sun dips. i also love this one.

pleated linen shorts – i love how classic these pleat front linen shorts are, perfect paired with a swimsuit top to make it feel modern.

wrap top in daisy print – i eyed this top when it came out. i think the print is charming and i love a good wrap.

ribbed mini dress – this sweet ribbed dress in soft pink would be cool paired with a flat sandal or sneakers.

hemp sweatshirt – i highly recommend adding a classic grey sweatshirt to your closet if you don’t have one.

happy friday! how are you doing? i think this is the close of week 4 of shelter in place. today was the first day i woke up and couldn’t remember what day it was. hope your week went okay. have you made anything delicious? i’m always looking for recipe recommendations. i made this pasta recipe on wednesday (pictured above!)  and it exceeded my expectations. i hadn’t attempted homemade pasta since we were in cooking school last year. it really is so easy and so rewarding. i felt proud of myself for how it turned out, we all need those little accomplishments right now. i plan on making it again soon. my juicer (that i love and use almost daily) also doubles as a pasta cutter. and i appreciate that the attachments come when you buy it, not as an add on.

we launched our new collection of phone cases with casetify today. it’s a very happy collection and a culmination of work from so many different artists. we’re proud of how it turned out. block shop textiles and bliss & mischief are two of the new artists we’ve added which is fun because we’ve been fans of their clothing and textiles for a long time. it’s cool to see it translate to cases.

if you’re looking for comfortable clothes to relax in but that don’t look like sweats i highly recommend these lola trousers by LACAUSA. they are an ethical local to LA, female owned brand that makes amazing clothes. vince is offering 25% off everything, which still means their clothing is out of my price range but i love the blue monochrome of this outfit and the pants are so chic. i’ve been wearing lots of monochrome outfits lately, it’s fun to play with tones. Beklina is a great small business to support and they are doing 25% off everything but shoes.

need supply which is home to tons of great independent designers is also offering 25% off their entire site. rachel comey, annie costello brown, and ganni are a few of my favorite brands to shop on their site. annie’s earrings are some of bri’s and my favorites and basically all of her designs are majorly on sale right now. she’s another rad LA designer.

i saw this pretty 80’s inspired dress on free people and it made me happy. i love the puff sleeve. they offering 50% off all dresses right now. my work from home uniform is mostly long dresses right now, they feel like a nightgown but looks like you put some effort in. crushing on this one (the back is so pretty!), this one, i love a long sleeve and this which actually basically is a nightgown.
