Iris Hantverk Brush Set

Not that I needed an excuse to share this little tool that makes me really happy with you, but the Friday's Detail series felt like a perfect way to introduce it. I've been mainly using this brush on my kitchen counter to clean up coffee grinds. My grinder tends to make a mess and this brush is much chic-er and more economical than wasting paper towels every day to wipe the counters. I think it's so beautifully designed that I'm more than happy to leave it on my counter as almost an art object. If only all cleaning utensils could be so functional AND easy on the eyes.

Wardrobe basics: the bomber jacket

Is it just me, or has pretty much every brand out there released a version of the MA-1 bomber jacket this season? I'm not complaining because I've recently converted to loving the style and think it's a super versatile and comfortable piece to own as a staple.

[Old Uniqlo bomber // Ankle Boots // Jeans // Tee]

The one I'm wearing here is actually a circa 2013 men's Uniqlo piece that hasn't been available for a while, but it's surprisingly warm and was perfect for a recent flight where I went from freezing-ass NY to warm Mexico. It allowed me to forgo wearing a heavy coat that would have been completely unnecessary for the destination.

But I've scoured the Internet and picked a few current options in this style (with gratuitous commentary below):
-The olive color of this one got my attention – I only wish the back weren't ribbed!
-Another olive option that I really love. The silhouette is different from the classic but I'm into it.
-If you want to shop the men's section, this one looks pretty similar to the one I'm wearing and has simple clean lines.
-A classic version from the brand that mainstreamed the style.
-And for the person who has an unlimited budget, THIS one by Vetements is far too cool. I actually tried it on recently and it feels pretty glorious to the touch.

Now if only it were warm enough to wear them right now...

Mustard and navy

In an effort to create more content and keep my creative juices flowing, I have come up with these mini-series like this one and this new one launching today, called Friday's detail. Who knows if I'll fail and end up with a bunch of one-post things that don't make a proper series, but I'm definitely trying. Below is a recent favorite color combination of mine, manifested in this skirt that looks more like Marni than Cos and this ribbed mid-sleeved sweater.
