Deal alert – Nordstrom is offering crazy bonus points this week. ALSO: these jams are super cute, particularly for any cat lovers in your life.

I served them in the typical martini glass, which will do in a pinch, but really the drink calls for an old-timey, wide-mouthed champagne glass. I did some digging … Read More about Gift Idea: Historical Glasses For History Buffs, Fans of Classic Cinema, and Drinkers
Nordstrom has recently marked down a ton of stuff, including these cute, highly-rated calf hair loafers from Halogen. I love the deep, dark colors of this particular leopard print — they feel like they would pop against a solid color like black, as well as look great against bare legs (like with ankle pants or … Read More about Coffee Break: Emilia Genuine Calf Hair Loafer
I never did get anything for myself for my last milestone birthday, but Chloé is definitely on the short list of contenders, both because I’ve never had a Chloé bag, and I keep being drawn to beautiful details on bags like this one, with a cool trapezoidal design and a prominent (decorative) padlock.

The pros: they’re so interesting and pretty and I’ll bet all of those carved facets catch the light.

J.Crew has some really cool collaborations right now, particularly for jewelry — these simple but cool hoops from Tribe Alive seem like they’d be great for work and beyond. Yes, they are big and break my rule against dangly things, but there isn’t a TON of movement to these to distract people when you speak, … Read More about Coffee Break: Venn Circle Earrings
My son has very sensitive hearing, so I’ve been down a million rabbitholes for what the best earplugs are — people rave about these hi-fidelity earplugs. If you’re bothered by noise or have a ton of concerts to go to, these are apparently the best you can buy. I like that they come with a … Read More about Coffee Break: High-Fidelity Earplugs

This elegant wrap top strikes me as a steal for $25. I like the cuffed sleeves, and although I like the belt it comes with, I kind of like that it’s removable in case you want to mix something higher with the low. The top comes in both red and black, and seems like a … Read More about Frugal Friday: Wrapover Top
