I’ve two very exciting brands to share with you, not only because they are both made by some local Houston friends, but also because they are truly handmade with love. This is real artisan work, thoughtful, interesting, and not off-the-rack. So when you are looking for something easy, everyday AND unique and special – take a look here.
This caftan I’m wearing is by MIRTH Caftan, a new line of luxurious caftans as stylish as they are comfortable. For real – this is not an unflattering muu muu sack, this is a beautifully designed and easy to wear dress you can pair with flip flops as well as heels. Dress it up or down, the comfort and style is all there. I’m wearing the corfu handmade edition in a light slate blue and white. For sizing, I’m the small, and I’m wearing a lightweight half slip underneath (not compression or spanx-like, just old school slip). Read more about the two sisters and the story behind Mirth.
The accessories are by Andrea Montgomery Designs, and I know you’ve seen me in this Asheville Tassel necklace before, so this is just further proof that this bone, turquoise and orange tassel necklace is as versatile as it is! I’m also wearing the Napa Valley Bracelet, a gorgeous labrodorite-beaded beauty that stacks perfectly on my Love bracelet. The gray-ish color pairs so nicely with the color of the caftan. Andrea’s designs range from unique & fashionable to custom high-end pieces, each of them so special. Andrea is one of my most favorite people ever, and she pours her heart & soul into her beautiful jewelry. PERFECT Mother’s Day Gift, by the way! Just forward this post to your husbands 🙂
The shoes, well these are my new lace up sandals from Schutz. They were a bit of a splurge, it’s true, but I’m in love with them. Even though they are lace up and stop at my ankle (a style no-no for short-legged ladies like me!), the bone-color is practically nude on my skin and elongates my legs. Comfort level is a 7-8. Not GREAT for walking long distances, but standing is just fine. I’m also wearing this exact look with these flat sandals from Target and I am getting as many compliments on these as I am on the heels. #HighLow
