goodbye stel's

i was so sad to hear that stel's was closing. jon and tina are two of the nicest people i've met. they opened right before i moved to cambridge for grad school, tina had her twin girls right before i had leon, and now they're closing shop one year after we moved to toronto. it really does feel like the end of an era.

the shop is having a huge closing sale starting today until june 30th. alas for us online shoppers, it's slim pickings on the webshop. i did, however, order a ton of things for leon and elias from monkey and the bug, the children's shop inside stel's.

i wish i were in boston so i could stop by the store one last time and say goodbye to all the lovely people there.

cotton gauze headband

handwoven vintage kilim rag rug pillow cover

do you feel overwhelmed by etsy? i certainly do. stephanie's curated list of favorites makes etsy browsing look effortless. i've been thinking a lot about that pillow cover...

summer brights

so this is what happens when you spend 6 weeks staring at jcrew catalogs after having a baby. you go to jcrew while in boston and buy an emergency mini-wardrobe of super bright t-shirts and shorts to tide you over until your old things fit again.

rachel comey silk corbey dress, $405 (too expensive for me, but i love the print and straps)

i am sorely tempted by the black bellas at anaise, but i need to check the measurements because i may need the 8s, which are sold out.

sale at anaise

airana bohling bella sandals now $201 at anaise.

creatures of comfort is also starting its 30% sale tonight at midnight (PRIVATESALESS12), but it's only for select designers. 

i bet this APC speckled silk t-shirt would work pretty well during the months of july and august, but goodness, i don't think i could keep it clean at the playground!

thom dolan tuckside mini at bow and arrow
some days i feel like being covered up completely, other days i'm wearing shorts. either way, i can never figure out how to stay cool when it gets hot and humid.
