12 Things Carrie Waller Is Loving This August

12 Things Carrie Waller Is Loving This August

Now that summer has descended in force, we’re all enjoying the slowness to the fullest. We’re ducking out of the office just a little earlier then normal, and embracing all of the beautiful boredom that this season is known for. With a little extra time on her hands, our features editor, Carrie, has been building a list of must-haves to carry her on into fall. Scroll on to see what made the cut!

  1. Catita Illustrations, ‘Fight Like A Girl’ T-Shirt ($27): The font, the slouchy silhouette, the message—this look perfectly sums up my summer style this year. (image via Maria Guedes)
  2. VICI, Desert Evening Maxi Dress ($62): I’m also really into the airy, flowy boho look this season, and recently discovered VICI. This shop has tons of affordable options to love. A couple of other favorites currently in my shopping cart: the Brie Cotton Cowl Neck Pullover ($48) for more casual nights in and the Oceana Beaded Drop Necklace ($24).
  3. Samsung 55″ LED The Frame SmartTV ($1,997.99): This is hands-down the coolest television of all time. We just added it to our family room, and love that the TV’s dormant look is digital framed art rather than an ostentatious black screen. Finally, a television that actually blends in with your décor.
  4. Sudio, Regent Headphones ($99): I’ve never been a big fan of earbuds because they never seem to stay put and end up hurting over time. So, these ultra-plush Bluetooth headphones are a game-changer. I love the cordless capabilities for listening to podcasts and music while cleaning the house!
  5. In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs, by Grace Bonney ($19.03): I know I’m late to the game on this one, but have loved diving into this book by Grace Bonney. It’s just the inspiration I needed to get out of my creative rut this summer.
  6. The Citizenry, ‘High Atlas’ Print by Simon Mills ($195): Did you hear that The Citizenry just released a collection of limited-edition travel art? We added this piece to our dining room earlier this season, and it’s definitely a new favorite.
  7. Sisters of Los Angeles, Surf Sand Love Zip Pouch ($17): The perfect summer catch-all for small beach necessities (think: sunnies, your phone, sunscreen, etc.)!
  8. Wool And The Gang, Shadows And Light Wall Hanging Kit ($26): I’m definitely adding this cool kit craft project to my list. For context, click back here to read my post on Glitter Guide about why I decided to take up knitting this season.
  9. Of A Kind, White Oxford Shirt ($99): You can never have too many white button-ups in your closet. I particularly love this style from Of A Kind’s new permanent collection.
  10. Alana Mitchell, Daily OC Cream Cleanser ($28): I just added this gentle cleanser to my routine, and now can’t go a day without it!
  11. CULTIVER, Linen Table Napkins (set of 4) ($45): I’m all about washed linen textures, especially in this pretty green tone.
  12. Abacasa Abacasa Sonoma Myan Area Rug ($594): This rug is basically the only thing on my mood board right now. The colors, the pattern—it’s perfect! I could design an entire room around it.

As an added bonus, we wanted to mention that ban.do just celebrated its international ban.do agenda day, and, as of July 31, you can now use your 2017-2018 agenda to mark those big dates ahead! See the full collection here if you still need to order yours.
