Bento

unboxing2unboxing4mmlafleur-1mmlafleur-2mmlafleur-3mmlafleur-4 Good morning and happy Monday! I’ve been a fan of MM.LaFleur for a long time and was so excited to finally try the Bento Box, a selection of 4-6 work wardrobe staples hand-picked for you based on your style and fit preferences.  Of the five garments I received, all except the jardigan are machine-washable. It’s not a subscription service and there’s no commitment – return what doesn’t work and keep only what you love! I’ve always been so impressed with the quality in their pieces and this selection is no different: the fabric is elegant but unfussy (with the perfect amount of stretch!), the tailoring is refined and always unique (the dresses graze the body just perfectly), and they’re made in New York! My favorite of this bunch is the cinnamon-colored dress. It’s a muted shade of red, so I’m not as self-conscious (red can be overpowering sometimes!), and the shoulder detail is so chic. My summertime work wardrobe refresh: complete! Try a Bento Box here.

PS: My all-time favorite black dress (and the one that had a 1000+ person waiting list a while back) is also by MM.LaFleur: here!

Thank you so much for visiting and hope you have a great start to your week!

Blouson

123 Happy Thursday! It’s been an eventful week for me: on Monday I helped to host an intimate dinner with some of my favorite local women benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital with Bumble and BumbleBFF for #BumbleGivesBack. On Tuesday the hubby and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary (whoa!) with a sushi dinner in the city. And on Wednesday we enjoyed dinner as a family at home (cooking!) with my parents visiting from San Diego. Happy summer days, keep ’em coming!

PS: The early access sale ends today and the sale opens to the public tomorrow! I picked this jacket up online when the sale started and I’m happy to report that it’s a keeper. If you’re looking for a camel coat, this one is a good one (plus it’s only $109!). A few others that might fit the bill and also on sale: this one is shorter,  this one is longer, this one is slimmer fit and this one is more relaxed (all are under $150).
