Tuesday trifecta: Reading glasses


When I lost my laptop not long ago, it was in a tote with my favorite readers—the frames of which were not cheap. I needed a replacement, stat—and ideally one that went for a lot less than my lost pair. And these, from Warby Parker, turn out to be the just about perfect replacement, and maybe even more perfect than the ones I lost because they’re a slightly lighter design.

I’m also a big fan of the readers from a company called Caddis. I’d love to think I could pull off these cool wire frames.

I also quite like these Ray Ban Clubmasters.

My current favorite pair of jeans


I just ordered this pair of Rag & Bone Dre jeans, which I already own in this blue wash, and which might just be the best pair of boyfriend jeans out there for women with hips such as myself. The fit is loose but not sloppy, and the cut is just a touch slimmer than your typical boyfriend style, which I appreciate.

A bunch of cool reusable shopping bags


I love the old-school inspiration for this bag, and it’s made of taffeta, which is cool.

This is actually made for hiking, but I love the color, and it looks like it’d fit a ton.

A trippy number from Baggu that’s big enough to double as a weekender.

And here is Baggu’s standard-sized shopping tote— I’ve got one in my bag at all times—which one can acquire in a ton of cute prints. It also comes with a handy pouch.

I like that this waxed canvas specimen looks so much like a plain brown shopping bag.

Here’s one that’s got lots of compartments, which is handy is you’re shlepping wine, among other things.


An excellent black gingham print versatile enough to skew preppy, rock and roll, or however you skew.
