While I was organizing my closet over the weekend, I found a few things I forgot I had—like these jeans. It feels like I JUST cleaned out my closet, but I guess I stuck these at the bottom of a stack somewhere. I also got rid of almost every pair of heels I had. (I did keep one black pair for emergencies.) It seems counter-intuitive, but it’s so much easier to get dressed with less to choose from.

Brandon told me the day before my birthday that my gift would be late and he felt very bad, but I am the most meh person when it comes to birthdays so I told him, “Don’t even feel bad! You know how meh I am about birthdays.” Anyway, the next morning he told me what he had gotten me so I’d have something to look forward to. 
AND IT ARRIVED TODAY 
It is Cuyana’s short leather tote and I feel good about having been recommending it blind to you guys for the past year or so because it is glorious. It is so well-made and appears to be very sturdy (I will report back after a month of use or so) and the monogramming is the icing on the cake. (It takes longer to receive the bag and it’s an extra $10, but it is the best $10 you will spend.) 
Here’s the thing I really love though: the color. It’s the richest shade of caramel. Caramel bags like this go with everything: They look good with denim and black (and I wear a lot of both). I love that the shape is so minimal and clean. No frills except the monogram. 
I am eyeing the tall leather tote ($150) next (when is the next gift giving occasion I can drop hints for—Mother’s Day, yes). If you have to take a laptop back and forth to work, the tall one might be a better choice. (Although I could easily fit my laptop in mine. It says “Short,” which may make you think it is small but it’s not.) 
Anyway, if you’ve been looking for a basic (NO BASIC BAGS ALLOWED) minimal leather tote that can work for commuting, weekend, diaper bagging, whatever—I am over the moon for this one already.

Announcing Acacia’s Spring Collection

image

When Brandon and I were trying to decide on a name for our shop, we knew we wanted something maritime-influenced and connected to Nova Scotia, Canada, where some of my family is from and still lives. Nova Scotia is where I first learned about tartans and clan tartans. (I am related to the Shaw clan through my paternal grandmother’s side and it’s impossible to go to Nova Scotia without seeing the provincial tartan somewhere.) When we looked at starting with tartan and plaid scarves this winter, we thought it would be great to find a name to bring all of these things together. The Acacia Valley is near the Port of Digby, Nova Scotia—and that’s where we would arrive by ferry when we visited. Acacia was the perfect name. 

Although we’re moving away from plaids for the warmer months, the Acacia spring collection continues to have a maritime influence. We found a great anchor print, a gorgeous print of boat plan schematics, and we chose solid colors inspired by the ocean: the deep blues of the water, the lighter blues of the sky, the taupes of the sand, the grays of the rocky shorelines.

What we really wanted to do this spring was create stylish, beautiful scarves that could be worn all year long. We wanted a scarf that’s refined enough to be worn to work but versatile enough to be paired with jeans or leggings on the weekend. 

Versatility in spring/summer scarves has a lot to do with fabric weight. Our fall/winter scarves are a heavier flannel. That’s perfect for keeping warm, but not ideal for spring or summer!

image

We chose two types of fabric for our year-round and warm weather scarves: fine cotton and linen blends. 

We cut our plaid winter scarves generously large—approximately 70 inches long by 40 inches wide. For our new collection, we wanted scarves that were smaller and more manageable but didn’t look anemic when tied. 

Our linen-blend scarves are approximately 70 inches long and 30 inches wide. 

image

Our cotton infinity scarves are approximately 12 inches wide and 40 inches long. They can be worn as a large open loop or looped twice (my favorite way to wear them, see below). 

image

We hope you enjoy our new spring and summer scarves as much as we’ve enjoyed making them! Watch for some new prints and colors over the next month too. 

Happy scarf shopping! 

— Jaclyn and Brandon

I recently got February’s Fabletics (<— referral link) items in the mail and I am still really loving them. I wore the Asaro leggings today with the Jackson tank. If you’re looking for a tank that’s a little longer and roomier, this tank is a GREAT choice. I’m still having trouble nailing down Fabletics sizing—I keep going back and forth between S and M and sometimes they fit perfectly and other times I’m swimming in the stuff—so I’d say go TTS or size down on this tank depending on how much extra coverage you want.
The sizing issues are really the only complaint I have. The fabrics are so soft and the styles are flattering. I like how I can wear many of the clothes outside of the gym too. I mean, I do that all the time anyway (as you know), but the leggings and sweaters—and especially the tees—are really versatile. (If you want to sign up, please consider using my link here. Thank you so much if you use it!)
