Jenni Kayne Home Store







While in Santa Barbara recently I stumbled upon the Jenni Kayne home store. Tucked away in Montecito, the light-filled space is bursting with chic finds. If you love Kayne’s shoes (do I ever…) you’ll be equally taken with her taste in home goods. From the heavenly scented Cire Trudon candles (Ernesto, inspired by cigars in Havana, is my favorite…) to the striking array of dinnerware I couldn’t help but want one of everything. I’ll just have to bring a bit of Kayne’s cool west coast vibe with me to Chicago…perhaps in the form of a place setting.

Christina Jervey Jewelry

Lately all I want to wear are neutrals and small, subtle jewelry. One of my favorite jewelry makers is Charleston’s Christina Jervey. Her gold and gold-plated pieces are dainty, stylish and won’t break the bank. She even does custom collaborations for special occasions which I love. Currently on my neutral-loving wish list:

1. Mixed Stitch Sweater – a yummy new addition at J.Crew… // 2. Amazonite Stud Earrings – just a pop of color… // 3. Essie Nail Polish in All Eyes on Nudes – I have been searching high and low for the perfect nude polish and this is it. Add a clear gloss topcoat if you’re not into matte. // 4. White Birkenstock Arizona – Plan to live in these all summer… // 5. Cage Ring – my personal favorite, so cool… // 6. Bob Basics Tote Bag – classic neutral leather tote… // 7. Clare V Oui Non Leather Clutch – the other side says “NON”, makes me smile… // 8. Arrow Cuff – a pretty statement for your wrist…

Ellie Skrzat for Buddy Editions





I am trying not to bombard you all with Buddy Editions posts, but some days I just can’t help myself. I spotted Ellie Skrzat’s portraiture work online and immediately reached out to see if she’d be willing to do an exclusive series for Buddy. I just love how striking and colorful her portraits are. They celebrate these strong, stylish women’s uniqueness rather than glossing over their features. In today’s airbrushed world, I find Ellie’s portraiture so refreshing. Above: Iris Apfel, Tavi Gevinson, Jenna Lyons, and Sofia Coppola. Get to know Ellie (she has a wicked sense of humor) here.
