Q&A Vol. 11
What are your favorite go-to brands for simple pieces like long/short sleeve tees, etc.? – Jessica D.
Simple but high-quality tees are a staple in my wardrobe—I love layering them with other pieces year-round and rely on them often to serve as the building blocks for classic outfits. Some of my all-time favorite sources are Rag & Bone for my go-to white crewneck, James Perse for a more relaxed white tee, Vince for comfortable striped tees along with Kule and Saint James for the perfect striped long-sleeve tees. I’ve also been impressed by Everlane’s selection, from comfortable pima long-sleeve tees to simple cotton crewnecks at a very affordable price. They have all different cuts and fabrics available, so I’m sure anyone could find their ideal tee from their selection!
Would you mind sharing your suggestions for nice bed linens? Between all of your travels and lovely sense of style, I figured you would know which brands have the best comfy, cozy bedding. – Jennifer V.
I couldn’t believe how much my sleep improved a few years ago when we invested in an excellent-quality mattress and bedding for the first time. Since then, I’ve come to believe that your bed should be the most comfortable place on earth to you! As far as bedding goes, we rotate between a few of our favorite luxury brands (like D. Porthault, Matouk, and Hill House), as well as a few more affordable, but still incredibly comfortable, options from Serena & Lily, Biscuit Home, and Roller Rabbit. For a one-stop shop for all bedding needs, we love Parachute Home and used their bedding throughout our NYC apartment (as seen here) when we had to decorate from scratch. Everyone has different preferences, so try to identify your ideal bedding fabric before investing in a new sheet set. Our personal favorites are 100% Egyptian cotton sateen and linen.
I think it’s been a few years since you’ve done a post on timepieces. I would love to see some watches at various price points! – Courtney M.
I don’t wear watches very often, but every once in a while, I love the crisp, timeless feel they can add to an outfit. My favorite time of year to wear them is in the fall paired with chunky knit sweaters, so I’m currently keeping my eye out for a new piece to add to my collection. My favorite watch styles lately are feminine and sophisticated, from classic gold chainlink watches (like this Michael Kors or this Shinola) and watches with slim leather straps (like this cognac Daniel Wellington or this blush Kate Spade). For an heirloom-worthy splurge, this floral statement watch from Gucci is absolutely stunning!
