The Lyst: August Favorites

Photo by Annie Shak

This month’s round of favorites will keep you content with summertime, while aching for fall.

The August lyst is meant to leave you feeling stylish, sweet + chic. I hope you find a treat or two for you and for a friend [these all make perfect gifts]! My personal favorites? The red backpack + the black fedora. There’s something about these pieces that make me feel like I’m going back to school again [minus all the essays]. Instead, our assignment is reading The Big Book of Chic…

The Lyst August


1. Loeffler Randall Mini Backpack $395

Besides this being the chicest backpack ever, I love its versatility.

2. Cooperative Jessie Patterned Sweater $49

This is one of those pieces you can pull off in both summer and fall.

3. Kate Spade New York Holly Drive Compact $30

A compact mirror who thinks I’m darling? I’ll take the compliment [and so should you].

4. Market Mercantile Mug $8

This mug from West Elm has a vintage vibe going on. Perfect for a morning cup of joe.

5. Palm Print Cosmetic Pouch $23.50

This bright print will bring a little piece of Cali-land to your bathroom everyday.

6. The Big Book of Chic $75

The perfect gift for your chicest friend who appreciates quirky, colorful and eclectic designs.

7. Magnificent Sock Boots $150

The charcoal color jumped out to me as a favorite for the fall season.

8. Brixton ‘Wesley’ Wool Fedora $52

This fedora can take a simple outfit and turn it super stylish. Plus, it hides a bad hair day.

9. Edible Flower Lollipop Set $24

I haven’t tried one yet, but the idea of this makes me feel all fancy.
