Daily Covet: J.Crew Dotted Racerback Dress

I’ve had my eye on this dotted racerback dress from J.Crew since last summer, but it sold out really fast.

This summer, J.Crew’s factory label featured the same dress at a slightly lower price point.  I bought it and love it!  The shift style is so easy to wear and the v-neck is sexy, but not too showy.

It was my mother’s day lunch dress styled with red patent slingbacks and a black cardigan.

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Merino Fingerless Gloves

I’m a sucker for winter accessories.

While the three boys in my life share a basket of warm hats, gloves, mittens and scarves, I have my own.

Stocking caps, berets, scarves, snoods and more fill my cup… er basket, to overflowing.

Last winter when I replaced a too big winter puffer coat, I picked a charcoal gray one.  I’ve been collecting fun and brightly-colored accessories ever since.  And that’s why these Kate Spade fingerless merino gloves are on my list.

Of course, I love the turqoise blue color and the whimsical dot print.  I also like they they are long, just in case I want to wear them with shorter sleeves or push them up inside my coat for warmth.

Daily Covet: Bedding in the “Guest Room”

Last week was a big week.  My littlest son became roommates with my older son, and that means we have our guest room back.  And by guest room, I mean my old double bed that has the most amazing mattress on it that I have now adopted as my own again.

Several years ago, I bought really cute bedding for that room.  Tufted white comforter and shams from Target against dark furniture and pale green walls.  I also bought white sheets with navy blue bands and big navy European shams with modern white edges.

I love the blue and navy combination, but I’d love to throw some bright green polka dot sheets for fun too.  At the time I set up this room, I couldn’t find these sheets.  I should probably snap them up, while the gettin’s good!
