Weekly Roundup: Cute, Casual and Comfy

Summer is fast approaching. For many of us that means relaxing our dress codes, even at the office. Here are this week’s top picks across a range of wardrobe items. Many were winners on clients, and some earned a place in my wardrobe. Lots of good reviews, and an ample colour selection.

  • Banana Republic Quinn Straight-Fit Cotton-Linen Shirt: This is an interesting cut because it’s shorter and boxier than a regular shirt, and with quite the curved hemline. The silhouette looks FRESH. The fabric is lovely, and drapes well in the fluid silhouette. Fun roomy fit. To my eye, scrunching the sleeves is best to create some structure. Works well semi-tucked too. It’s just the type of top I like to wear in blazing heat because it’s made of natural fibres, breezy, and covered. It earned a place in my wardrobe as an updated classic. I love the white buttons and the tomato red is delicious.
  • Banana Republic High-Rise Wide-Leg Cropped Jean: These fit well on a range of body types. They come in petite so try them in that size if you’re short in the waist or rise. Great opaque white denim and no pocket grinning. Hem is easily hackable.
  • Cinch Waist Knit Jacket: A very lightweight KNIT jacket that runs a size big and comes in seven colours. The part elastic waist provides a nice bit of structure to the fluid shape. Good side entry pockets.
  • Banana Republic Cropped Denim Jacket: Extremely comfy soft denim jacket with stretch. It runs a little big so size down if you need a narrow fit. Great over dresses, skirts and wide crops. Comes in two denim washes too.
  • Karen Kane Women’s Plus Size Asymmetric Maxi Dress: Casual Elegant Fabness. Flattering, comfortable, streamlined, machine washable and easy to wear. A little fashion tape will help if the V-neck spills open when you sit.
  • Crop Wide Leg Jeans: These work well if you’re regular or longer in the rise. Quite good on a curvier body type but might need waistband alterations. Good on apple-shaped body types. Fab opaque white denim. Easy to hem to a shorter length.
  • Jen7 Women’s Slim Straight Jeans: These are a repeat style that work every season. Extremely well made and gorgeous quality. Fab on a curvier body type. Size down if you’re straighter through the hips and thighs. Great full-length jeans.
  • Boden Helena Chino Dress: A cute and classic utility dress that has good reviews for good reason. Works on a range of body types because the cut is that good. Eight colours and comes in longs and petites. Goes up to a US18.
  • Natesa Perforated Sandal: EXTREMELY comfy sandal booties that have worked on a wider foot if you size up half a size. Nicely tailored, and comes in three neutrals. They work with shorts, dresses, skirts, pants and jeans.
  • Rebecca Minkoff Cyder Top: Dark Floral Fabness. Great layered under a jacket or worn on its own. Nice mesh fabric. Fab with a camisole that comes with the top, can be removed, and has adjustable straps. It’s not as fitted in person, and quite forgiving.
  • Banana Republic Petite Cotton-Blend Cable-Knit Sweater: The photo does not do this fun top justice. It’s quite fitted, but with just enough fluidity. It has a subtle cabled panel down the front, and is a good length. It’s great worn over most bottoms, and the length of the sleeve looks fresh. Fab under a jacket. I have this in navy and it handles the laundry well.
  • Ruched Sheath Dress: An easy jersey dress with magical diagonal lines. Works as well for a curvy figure as it does for a straighter one. Flattering.
  • Ruffle Sleeve Paisley Tee: Mesh is fab because it does not crease. If you liked those iconic Sweetpea tops from way back when, you might like this. Very flattering on petites in the regular size, and it does not run large as Nordstrom suggests. V is not too low.
  • Wilt T-Shirt Dress: Easy T-Shirt Dress Fabness with architectural drape. Works on a range of body types. In fact, this type of dress is beyond body type. The hi-low hemline adds excellent structure to the volume of the dress.
  • Chaser Gauzy Cotton High Low Muscle Tank: Fun ’80s graphic tee worn as is, under a blazer, or as a vest over a shirt.
  • Helmut Lang Pocket Tee: This type of pricey Helmet Lang tee is a repeat silhouette that is worth a look if you enjoy wearing designer tees. Some of my clients adore them. They’re quite fitted, neat and tidy despite the rips, and look interesting worn with dressier bottoms and footwear. A good backdrop to showcase statement jewellery.
  • Madewell Resin Hoop Earrings: Super fun and VERY lightweight resin hoops that come in five colours.
  • Robi Stripe Tee: Arty Statement Tee Fabness. Wear with slim bottoms, a pencil skirt, harem pants, over a pleated skirt, or with shorts.
  • Darno Stripe Cotton Blend Tee: One of the best ruffled tees of the season. It combines soft flounce with graphic crispness and hard edge. Covered, yet alluring. I like it best semi-tucked.
  • Stripe Midi Dress: A flattering dress that hugs and glides over all the right places on the body. The diagonal lines are interesting, and the bodice a little kimono-esque. Feel free to wear it with casual footwear.
  • Endless Summer by Free People Drop Waist Midi Dress: A dropped waist dress is unique, and works better than you might expect, especially when it’s A-line. You have to like the high neckline on this one though. The armholes are low so wear a pretty bra, cami or bralette.
  • Front Knot Jersey Maxi Dress: An easy throw-on-and-go frock that works on most body types. The length can be hemmed to midi if that’s your preference.
  • Sam Edelman Kassie Loafer: A surprisingly comfortable and interesting espadrille-sneaker hybrid. Fits low and regular volume feet. Tailored and tidy on the foot. Wear them instead of sneakers.
  • Ryde Sandal: If you have a Dystopian, Hard-Edged or very casual style – try these. Extremely soft and comfy, and make quite a statement. Runs a size big. Comes in four neutrals.
  • Elax Slide Sandal: ’90s flashback! Comfy and on-trend slides in four colours that work on a range of foot shapes.
  • Catch Me Sport Sandal: Trendy sporty platform sandals that work on regular and higher volume feet. Lightweight and cushioning. The blush is pretty too.
  • Bali Sandal: Super soft, supportive and comfy sandals for regular and higher volume feet but not very wide feet. All the neutrals are nice.
  • Luckie Sandal: If you like flat bed sandals like Naots and Birkies, you might like these. They’re supportive, very comfy, and go the distance. The grey is nice too.

It’s time for Kenya Moore and Marc Daly’s baby girl to ger her tiny ears pierced. Kenya shared a new video of the baby girl on her social media account, while she’s waiting to get her shots.

Brooklyn’s smile has fans in awe, and if you watch the video, you’ll have a better day as well, for sure.

In the video, Kenya can be heard saying ‘What are you doing Brooky? Huh? Are you ready for your shot? Are you ready for your shots, little girl? Are you ready for your ears pierced?’

Kenya’s precious infant can be seen wearing only a diaper while she’s smiling.

Fans are grateful to Kenya for sharing these precious moments with Brookie with them, and they make sure to tell the mom this in the comments.

A fan asked Kenya, ‘Does she ever cry or fuss? She is such a happy baby ❤’ while another one showed their gratitude to Kenya for the sweet pics and videos she has been sharing: ‘Just adorable!!!!! Thank you! Thank you for sharing these precious moments!!!!’

Another commenter also gushed over the baby and said ‘She is simply beautiful I ‘m so happy for Kenya. 💓💓💓

Someone said Brooklyn looks like Marc: ‘She looks so much like her dad. All she needs is the nose piercing, and they would be twins. Sooo freaking cute!’

Another follower posted ‘She’s enjoying the noise that paper is making 😁, to hell with the shot.😂

One fan is worried about the fact that Brookie will be in pain and said ‘I’m a fan but could you not wait until she’s old enough to choose if she wants them coz it’s unnecessary pain for her just for looks .its painful even as an adult to lay your head onto it afterwards let alone a little baby who has no idea why she would feel any pain.’

Time to celebrate! Jennifer Love Hewitt’s kids helped the actress ring in her 40th birthday in a super sweet way.

“This made my heart explode with love and gratitude this morning!” the 9-1-1 star wrote on Instagram on Thursday, February 21. “My kids made me a cake and crown for the big day! They had help from a beautiful bday fairy @theshavs and I am super grateful.”

In the photo, Hewitt showed off a two-tier cake covered in chocolate frosting, rainbow sprinkles and candles. Next to the sweet treat was a white crown covered in stickers, sequins and pom-poms. The crafted crown tied together in the back with a striped ribbon.

The Golden Globe nominee, who shares Autumn, 5, and Atticus, 3, with her husband, Brian Hallisay, sported the homemade accessory on her Instagram Story that same day in a selfie.

Hewitt posted another selfie that same morning, writing, “This is 40! Today I am joyful, lucky, healthy, I have the greatest kids, the most amazing husband, incredible friends, a job I love and deep gratitude for this beautiful thing called life! I am 40. I feel 22. Today is my 30th birthday as an actress and Californian girl. Wow.”

The singer told Us Weekly exclusively in August 2018 that she has a hard time spending time apart from her little ones when she’s working on the 9-1-1 set.

“[It is] much tougher on me. I just miss them,” she said at the time. “I’m just not used to being away for all those hours, so I just miss them.”

She added: “My daughter thinks that work is the coolest thing she’s ever seen. She loves the craft service truck. My son got to run around the lot, like, go into ‘New York,’ go up and down the stairs and take a picture in front of the police station, which he thought was super cool. So, they’re doing great. It’s just me who’s a sap in my trailer, like, ‘Why can’t I see my babies?’”

Love cute cafes? These are the best cafes in the world

Big fan of coffee? Love having somewhere cozy to spend time with your friends? If that’s the case, you probably love nothing more than settling down with a nice cup of joe in a café. You likely know all the best places to go in your hometown, but what about in other cities around the world? If you need somewhere to enjoy a coffee or two while on vacation, you should probably check out these cute cafés.

Fukuro No Mise (Tokyo)

For all the animal lovers out there, cafés are some of the best places to go. Cat cafés have been popping up all over the world, but it’s not just felines that call these places home. The name Fukuro No Mise translates to Café of Owls, so we’re sure you can guess what animals you’ll find at this establishment. If you’re still not over the loss of Hedwig in the final Harry Potter book, you can drown your sorrows by petting some owls at this cute Tokyo café. Just try not to get too excited. The Owls might be tame, but they’re still birds of prey.

Snakes and Lattes (Toronto)

What’s more relaxing than playing a board game with your friends? Okay, so maybe it’s not that relaxing, but it’s a great way to pass an hour or two while you settle down with some tea or coffee. Plus, at Snakes and Lattes in Toronto, you have a choice of hundreds of classic games to get through while you let your competitive streak run wild. The cute café even hosts its own gaming events every so often, giving you an excellent chance to prove your talents to enthusiasts from around the world.

Big Knit Café (Bangkok)

Nothing says cute and cozy like a knitted scarf or jumper. Luckily, if you’ve no idea what you’re doing with a ball of yarn and some needles, you can learn everything you need to at the Big Knit Café. The establishment offers plenty of tutorials to newbies as they sip on their coffee and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in Bangkok. For those already in the know, there’s plenty of yarn lining the walls that you can take to your table and start working on. Now you just have to decide what it is you want to knit.

Chillout Ice Lounge (Dubai)

You don’t go to Dubai if you can’t handle the heat. However, if the high temperatures prove to be too much for you, at least the Chillout Ice Lounge is designed to cool visitors down. Nearly everything in the establishment is made from ice, including the couches, making it the perfect place for some relief from the heat. Hot chocolates are the drink of choice here, and they’re recommended for staying warm in the subzero café. Things can get so cold that you’ll probably be grateful to return to the Dubai heat once you’ve finished your drink.

There are so many amazing places to enjoy coffee around the world, but these spots take the traditional café to the next level. You’ll want to add them to your bucket list.
