Thinking about sprucing up your home this weekend? This edition of the Edit has everything you’ll need…plus a few treats to reward yourself at the end of a long day of rearranging. Keep reading to see what our editors have been loving lately…
1. Rebecca Minkoff Ana Floral Wrap Dress, $188
When it comes to summer dresses I love taking a casual option and elevating it. This one from Rebecca Minkoff can easily be dressed up for special occasions or worn as an everyday piece. You can’t keep me away from a good floral. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief
2. LC Lauren Conrad 10k Rose Gold Diamond Accent Leaf Stud Earring, $500
I always gravitate towards stud earrings that I can wear pretty much all year round. I kept this in mind when I was designing fine jewelry for my LC Lauren Conrad collection, and that’s why I love these leaf stud earrings so much. –Lauren, Editor-in-Chief
3. West Elm White + Gold Candle, $39-$54
I went into West Elm the other day to return something and, I kid you not, walked past this candle they were burning in the store at least five times thinking to myself, “What in the world is that amazing smell?!” I love candles with muskier, spiced scents, and this one is exactly that. It’s described online as a “smoky, moody fragrance marked with notes of spice and amber.” If that’s your thing, this candle is a must in your home. Plus, it’s just pretty. –Tessa, Associate Editor
4. LC Lauren Conrad Print Halter Maxi Dress, $68
This dress is a dream! I bought it in the gingham, and loved it so much that I snagged the ‘Fleurs Lemon White’ color, too. Be forewarned that if you’re 5’2″ like I am, you may have to hem it. But it’s the perfect summer dress and well worth the effort! –Ilana, Managing Editor
5. Anthropologie Springworthy Bandana, $18
I decided to embrace the hair scarf trend this season, as I love how it adds a feminine touch to any summer ensemble. I recently ordered this one from Anthropologie and it achieves the look perfectly. They have six cute colors (I ordered the “yellow motif”) and they come at an affordable price. (Pssst! Here are a few more on-trend ways to style your scarf or bandana this summer). –Allison, Managing Editor
6. The Little Market White Tassel Blanket with Black Stripes, $156
When it comes to shopping, I always find myself buying items to spruce up my home rather than my closet. I love the new blankets from The Little Market and this striped option is my favorite! –Jessi, Senior Editor
7. Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Now Playing in Select Theaters
I can’t recommend this documentary enough! I grew up watching Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, but really had no idea until seeing this film how singular, iconic, and at times radical Fred Rogers was. But whether Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood was a huge part of your childhood or not, it’s an incredibly touching and insightful look at one of the most genuine human beings there ever was. –Ilana, Managing Editor
8. Pod Save the World
I’m a big fan of Pod Save America, and lately have been listening to all of Crooked Media’s incredible podcasts. Pod Save the World is hosted by Tommy Vietor, who is an expert on foreign policy and worked for President Obama’s National Security Council. I love this podcast because Tommy and his brilliant guests explain what’s going on with current foreign policy, breaks down complicated topics and brings you up to date on the important issues going on in the world. –Rachel, Managing Editor
9. McGee & Co. Blue and White Mini Jars, $45
I’ve been loving interiors with global touches lately, and have been seeing these pretty chinoiserie jars everywhere—styled among bookshelves, in kitchens, on coffee tables, you name it. The giant ceramic jars can get pretty pricey, so I opted for one of these little ones to mix in with some other accents in my apartment. I’m planning on putting it on my fireplace mantle next to some other fun and eclectic knick-knacks and I can’t wait to see how it looks when it arrives! –Tessa, Associate Editor
10. Who What Wear Ruffle Heeled Slides, $34.99
Two things that I’m obsessed with right now: summer shoes and the color powder blue! These Who What Wear shoes were an obvious choice for me. The heel is just the right height to dress up or down, and I’m a sucker for a sweet ruffle detail. Plus, you really can’t beat Target prices!
