Telfar bag

I put up a “Recent Finds” post almost every Friday, and it only recently dawned on me that I wasn’t highlighting black-owned businesses. I’m disappointed in myself, and going forward, I want that to change. Mindfulness, mindfulness, mindfulness.

A good first step is dedicating today’s Recent Finds to researching, learning about, and supporting some (mostly) new-to-me brands!

Plaid bow slides! So many other cute patterns to choose from, too.

LemLem is a gemgem. Sorry. Had to. But stripe heaven, guys! Madewell, Bloomingdales, Shopbop and a ton of other retailers carry it.

Rebecca Allen started this company because there wasn’t a “nude” shoe for everyone. Amazing.

LemLem suit. That tie!

Extremely versatile pair of pumps. In love with that chunky heel.

IN LOVE. I’d actually seen these bags before on high-end retailers’ sites! They come in a bunch of different sizes and colors. Act fast because they sell out very quickly.

Didn’t know this company is black-owned; I’ve been using their “Don’t Despair, Repair” line for years! (It’s pricey but VERY good if your hair is fried.)

Rattan bags. My weakness this time of year.

Such a beautiful summer dress. Huge fan of longer dresses with sleeves for ultimate sun protection.

These are sold out, but keep an eye on them!

Look at that neck!

Perfect everyday dress for the upcoming warm months.

Hosiery for every skin shade!

I mean… WHAT.

Huarache sandals! If you’ve been following along for a while, you probably know I’m obsessed. ;) I live in them this time of year!

Gorgeous maxi.

Aren’t these so sharp-looking?

An investment, for sure–and definitely high-end. But wouldn’t these be beautiful under a more casual wedding dress?!

Definitely drawn to the orange…

I’m so glad that scrunchies are back.

Clearly infatuated with this cut.
