You may recall my day trip to Martha’s Vineyard last summer to meet the Sisco and Berluti sisters and scoop up some summer wrist candy. Impulse in Wellesley is hosting the sisters Lisa and Caroline and their trunk full of goodies on May 27. Shop the latest styles for summer or work one on one with the designers to create your own custom bracelets. Heaven! For someone with small wrists like myself, having the bracelet custom designed and sized is reason enough to go. Will I see you there? ~ LB

"Lisa, what did I do without this shoes in my life?"
Yes, I said that. I recently purchased two pairs of shoes, both mirrored silver. One flat, one pump. And honestly, what did I wear before them? I am wearing them ALL THE TIME. They are my new neutral, my go-tos, and soon they will be paying me to wear them. What shoes are these you wonder? Behold. First up, Whistles mirrored silver ballet flats.

Second, a pair of Jimmy Choo mirrored silver pumps.

Both shoes look great with everything! Black, jeans, white, grey, even colors; these are the new neutral. And now that I'm obsessed with mirrored silver, I keep seeing it everywhere! And I want to buy more. Purses, clutches, sandals. Watch out! Put this on your radar and shake up your outfits with this updated, modern material. See below for inspiration; yes, you can fit this into your wardrobe! ~ JH

One of WW2W’s favorite go-to brands just opened a stand-alone last Tuesday in our backyard! Though I was rushing to a hair appointment, I had enough time to pop in and snap a few pictures at the new Joie store, at 141 Newbury Street. It is inviting and beautifully done.
For those of you in the market for slides (ahem, Jennifer), these black and camel ones were cute.
I really liked this blue Montserrat tunic top. Over white jeans, or a suit at the beach, it’s an easy go-to piece for summer. And they have in matching kids sizes too, a new line they’re just introducing this season.
Come here my pretty canvas and jute tote When you’re not accompanying me to the beach on the weekends, you will tote my laptop and shoes to work during the week.
This picture has all my favorite colors and patterns, though I’m not sold on big florals just yet.
The first thing I looked for when I walked in was 'soft joie', which is their “comfy” line of very wearable and affordable pieces. There was a pretty good selection - I hope they beef it up this fall. That, and a 3-way mirror to see what’s going on in the back, and it’s all good. Welcome to the neighborhood Joie! ~ LB
