This small Loewe Raffia tote is my latest find from The Real Real.
One of my goals for 2024 is to read more. So far over the past month and half I have finished eight books, so I am certainly at a better cadence than I was last year. I often read on my Kindle Oasis or listen to audio books via the Libby App or Audible. I find I reach much more often thanks to my kindle, as I love the compact size and how light weight it is! It is so easy to throw in your purse and allows me to read during random quiet moments like on the subway or in a waiting room.
As you all know, I love to give myself at home manicures. One of my favorite nail care brands is the new york based, female-founded brand, TenOverTen. I think they have some of the best nail polish colors and then I just LOVE their nail polish remover. The team at TenOverTen recently sent me their nail tool kit and it is the nicest upgrade for my at home manicures. The salon-grade tools are stainless-steel and created in Germany. They simply are very luxe! So if you too like to give yourself a manicure, I certainly recommend all these lovely TenOverTen products. (Use code NAN15 for 15% off!)
My family and I are out in Deer Valley, Utah to ski for a few days. I had not been skiing in a few years so I needed to update my ski outfit and I turned to Halfdays because I love that they offer inclusive sizing in women's ski outfits (sizes XS - 2x.) I purchased their black bib style skipants (1XL) and a green belted ski jacket (XL) and can report that I loved both items. They worked perfectly for our ski days keeping me warm and comfortable!
Wearing this casual outfit of leggings, a sweatshirt and my Toteme coat on this cold winter day! These are leggings are my new favorite Amazon find, they are fleece lined leggings for only $30! I bought a much more expensive pair of fleece leggings from another athletic company earlier this winter and can say that this Amazon pair is much better. I am in my usual size, XL. *Sneakers were kindly gifted.
Celebrating 30! I am in love with this black satin jewel-embellished skirt from ALC (it runs quite big, so I would size down, I am in a size 12 when my pant size is usually 16 or 18.) I then paired the skirt with a black thin ribbed cardigan from La Ligne (I am in size XL) and classic Maysli Suede Black heels from Manolo Blahnik.
After considering the Panier Medium Bag from Saint Laurent for what felt like years, I finally went for it and splurged on the crochet raffia tote before heading to the Bahamas. I am happy to report that I am thrilled with my purchase; it is perfect for the beach! I purchased the bag via the Cettire site but you can also find from most other major retailers.
