Currently Loving….April ’15

Spring is officially here! And although I have spent the entire winter moaning and groaning about the cold, I now have about 15 minutes of non-complaints before I start with the dissing and hating NYC weather once the humidity and heat start….which knowing New York could happen any minute! On top of loving Spring, here are other things that I am currently loving!

 

1. Ample Hills Ice Cream

Now that it is almost the marathon GULP SWEAT FREAK OUT PANIC WHAT OH WHAT AM I DOING (I leave on Thursday night for the marathon), I have been carbo loading every single day, which means eating pints upon pints of ice cream. And once you try Ample Hills Ice Cream, you just can’t go back to eating plain old regular ice cream. This stuff is the real stuff.  Click here for my full post.

Pregnancy Style

I am *NOT* pregnant, but my friend and contributing editor, Ali Berlin, *IS* pregnant (HUGE congrats and love). She is not only a wise sage, but a stylish, hip, on-trend fashionista. EVEN when pregnant. So for you pregnant friends and readers, here are Ali‘s current go-to-pregnancy-style items! Thank you, Ali.. Take it away!

Pregnant Ali! How cute is she???? I want to look like her (and I didn't love being pregnant, but she makes pregnancy look so hip and fun!)

Summer Hair

99.99% of the time, my hair is up in an olive-oyl chignon. I rarely wear it in a different style…guilty of being boring and predictable! Luckily, contributing editor Ali, via her hair stylist, Kate has some tips for us! Here they are! Thanks, Ali and Kate! Take it away!

Ace and Jig / Ali

When I find something I love, I become obsessed. And that has officially happened with “Ace & Jig“.  I am head over heels in love and want absolutely everything in the collection. EVERYTHING. This fun, happy clothing line is part hippy, part urban, part country, ever so comfortable, totally stylish, and a must-have for everyone.

Screen Shot 2013-04-20 at 6.55.35 AMAce & Jig’s collection is made with the most comfortable, soft yarn-dye woven fabric from India. It is the type of clothing that is so uber wearable, that you never want to take it off.

UP CLOSE LOOK at the material. Soft, thick, substantial, and smooth.

Each piece of clothing has a stripe in the pattern. Some are solid vibrant stripes, whereas some are more subtle pops of color. And who doesn’t love stripes?

Cary Vaughan and Jenna Wilson, the designers of Ace & Jig, describe their clothing as “aesthetically beautiful yet functional… Accessible clothes that are not overstyled, pieces that you keep forever and love.” And it is so true.  True love! And the price point is perfect, making it possible to buy not just one of their shirts or dresses, but multiple!

Call me a hoarder. Or obsessive. OR RAD!

The Coveteur / The Beckermans

So apparently, I am one of the last people on this planet to find out about the Beckerman sisters….but better late than never, because now I have a new blog to obsess ever! The Beckermans are three (yes THREE) stylish, sassy, blonde sisters. Almost four years ago, they started blogging their outfits online and instantly became a hit — so much so that they have teamed up with major brands (Nine West, Juicy Couture, H&M, etc…) for collaborations.

Two of the three Beckerman Babes!

The trio, Caillianne (love the name!), Samantha, and Chloe, chronicle their outfits on the blog with their wit, humor, and style. So who better than The Coveteur to take a look inside their closet to see their flea-market finds and designer gems! Here are exclusive photos of the Beckermans a la Coveteur style!
