I often receive various requests from my readers (thank you!) and quite a few of you have reached out asking about my favorite books, clothes and home accessories so I wanted to share some of my favorite things this month. I think this could easily turn into something I do every month, so please let me know what you think in the comments section below!
Given the season, I frequently have the urge to snuggle up so I’ll start with my favorite lounge-wear, book and candle. I am a huge fan of Eberjey and own everything from the brand’s pajama sets to the chemises. The cotton is ultra soft and each piece is easy to wear. My favorite set is the white cami and shorts. I feel incredibly effeminate and cozy each time I put it on. Pair this perfect lounge outfit with a good book and a candle and it makes for the perfect night in!
My personal favorite read right now is How Will You Measure Your Life. It is a book about balancing your career with your personal life. The author is Harvard professor Clayton M. Christensen who has seen many people leave business school to go on and only focus on their careers leaving them with shattered family lives. He offers fantastic insight on how to master work/life balance.
My favorite Starling candle at the moment is the Hyacinth + Bamboo. The fresh, uplifting scent never disappoints, especially right now given I am busier than ever at work. Aromatherapy is a key part of my day. Side note: I collect matches and have hundreds of them. I love going through my match bowl and pulling out different ones to light my candle each night. It brings back many great memories.
Finally, what would this list be without my current favorite fashion staples? While I love sandals, I personally prefer my pointed toe patent pumps any day. They truly go with anything and can make the simplest outfit sophisticated. While I know Manolos are a splurge, these pumps are incredibly comfortable and durable (I’ve had the same pair for 2 years). Pair your pumps with these chic tassel earrings for a night out.
