Even young Royals…

May 22, 2018

like it simplequietmodern. Well, relatively. I’d like to think Prince Harry got the idea to gather a handful of blooms for his bride, from the family garden at Kensington, right here in an earlier post. While he did have some help tying it all together, his selection of astilbe, jasmine, lily of the valley, sweet pea, forget me not and myrtle struck the perfect note.

I’m Obsessed

Can one have too many black Oxfords? I don’t think so. These polished leather Derby shoes by Common Projects, set on crepe rubber soles, fill the gap perfectly between their minimalist sneakers and more formal offerings. Paired with everything from jeans to business attire, these will take you right through till summer, when, weather permitting, you’ll be barefoot in the grass.

Elementary

May 2, 2018

As its name implies, the Elementary Wrap from Purl Soho is just that…easily dealt with, straightforward, uncomplicated. Three skeins of Purl Soho’s Linen Quill, a blend of Highland  wool, alpaca and linen, a US #4 circular needle and the free pattern is all that’s needed to get you into a little Zen knitting. This time next week you’ll not only be totally chill, but you’ll have created a Mothers Day gift that’ll be hard to top.
