Father's Day Cards

Why is it that most father's day cards tend to have something to do with work?  There's a tie... or a briefcase... or a man wearing a tie with a briefcase.  If you're lucky, you might find one with something to do with grilling.  Is that what Dads do?  Work and grill?  I've tried to find a few cards that have fun messages or have to do with some other interest your father might have so that you don't have to remind him that on the day after father's day, he has to go back to work.  Have you picked up a great father's day card yet?  If so, where is it from?  I'd love to know.

The Bermuda Bag

I've been lucky to receive a number of stylish items that were passed down from both of my grandmothers.  One of the most-used items is a classic Bermuda bag that I've taken to almost every wedding we've attended (and there have been a LOT of those).  In the most recent Mark and Graham catalog (which I always love perusing), these bags were featured.  They are incredibly preppy and I think I love the preppiest of them all most - the blue seersucker.  What do you think?  Too preppy?

Power Trip

I'm on a work trip to Los Angeles.  Packing for trips reminds me how much I hate trying to remember all of the various chargers that I might need while I'm away.... iPad, iPhone, computer, etc. and nevermind that it is almost impossible to remember car chargers (at least for me).  I love these Power Trip charging kits that include everything you need to charge an iPhone or iPad in the wall or the car.  The fact that they are cute is an added bonus.

Kale!

Yup, it's trendy, but I love it.  Kale, that is.  I actually have this awesome t-shirt already, but that isn't stopping me from coveting this sweatshirt version.  If there was ever a sweatshirt for the farmer's market this summer, this is it.

Metaphore Totes

I own quite a few totes.  Most aren't particularly pricey, but they are usually patterned and colorful and practical (I really like being able to wash a bag - things spill, right?).  I have a few nice bags in my rotation for work, but you are just as likely to catch me carrying a reusable tote (my favorite of which is from an industrial waste conference Rob went to - thanks bud).  A few years ago, I fell in love with this tote, but it just seemed a little pricey for what it is (mostly canvas).  So, I was psyched to find these totes from Metaphore out of Istanbul in an assortment of patterns and at a much more reasonable price (under $100).  Which one is your favorite?  I love both of the polka dot bags... maybe the red?
