The Lyst: August Favorites

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.
