Right now we want: The Ropes bracelets and more
TOC’s must-haves of the moment also include a Loll swing.
Friendship bracelets are fun and all, but sometimes they look a little too casual. These bracelets by the Ropes are just as colorful but seem more refined. The bracelets are made from marine ropes and hardware, which means this accessory also falls under the nautical trend we’ve been obsessed with lately. $60 and up at shop.spaceskennebunkport.com.
Right now we really, really want a house with a porch. That way, we could install this Loll Swing. The waterproof swing is made with recycled plastic (such as milk jugs) and comes in nine colors. We like blue or green. $225 at Design Within Reach (1574 N Kingsbury St, 312-482-8661; 10 E Ohio St, 312-280-4677, dwr.com).
When you’re as fair-skinned as we are, one summer goal is figuring out the best way to look stylish and stay sun-protected at the same time. This adorable ruffled sun hat is just the type of piece to keep us looking (and feeling) cool and breezy. $48 at Anthropologie (locations citywide, anthropologie.com).
The funny thing is, we didn’t even care for dollhouses as kids, but Grow Studio’s Lille shop, inspired by a 100-plus-year-old home in Logan Square and made with recycled paper, looks so well designed we think it suits our grown-up, modern living-room aesthetic. Get extra brownie points with your nieces by having toys out for playtime whenever they visit. $60 at growbookspress.myshopify.com.
