Last week I stopped by the Maiyet sample sale where I was looking for potential wedding dress options (no luck) but I found the most comfortable and chic desert sandals. An elevated version of the traditional Menorcan style sandal, with the softest leather toe and metal tipped tie at the ankle. The silhouette is more streamlined than the traditional Menorcan sandals. The ankle strap is a welcome addition to this classic summer sandal. Now if the weather would just warm up enough to wear them…

A Moment at Totokaelo

It’s no secret that Totokaelo is one of my favorite stores. Not only do they curate a thoughtful collection of designers, but the space is perfectly minimal. Here are a few moments from my visit to Totokaelo last week when I tried on the dreamiest wool coat from The Row.

To catch more of these moments in real time, follow me on Instagram and snapchat at desmitten.

Monday Mood: Low Pony

monday-mood-beauty-supply-low-pony-messy-bun-easy-hair-desmittenMonday mornings aren’t always easy, luckily, your hairstyle can be. The low pony is making a major comeback, and the messier the better. Whether adorned with barretteszip ties or a simple string, this is a full proof look that is equivalent to beach waves or bedhead. I especially love when the locks linger somewhere between pony and bun. I’ve gathered my favorite versions of this easy chic hairstyle for your browsing pleasure.

The simplest forms make lasting impressions on me. I can’t get this chaise lounge out of my mind. The organic shape and muted hue…sitting next to a mocha door. Perfection in every sense of the word. For more interior inspiration visit Oliver Gustav’s instagram where I came across this beauty.

Beauty Supply: Josh Rosebrook Moisturizing Cleanser

When I was at ABC Home chatting with Rose Marie Swift of RMS beauty, she noticed how dehydrated my skin was (ugh winter) and she recommended her favorite non-toxic face wash, Josh Rosebrook moisturizing cleanser. I should have started using it months ago because it has made a visible difference in my skin. With moisturizing ingredients including jojoba oil, evening primrose oil and almond oil, I was nervous that it would sit on top of my skin instead of deeply cleansing and moisturizing. This was not the case. The African black soap and willow bark gently exfoliates and detoxifies while slippery elm and calendula soothes redness and heals. Josh Rosebrook moisturizing cleanser is my new favorite. It doesn’t leave any residue on your skin and doesn’t leave it feeling stripped or tight. If you are in the market for a new gentle, but effective cleanser, this one is for you.
