Valentine's Day Gift Guide: For the Snow Bunny

Ah, the snow bunny. The more daring ones will actually ski or snowboard (or at least attempt to) and want gear and undies to make them as comfortable as possible when they inevitably tumble down the mountain, while the less risk-averse will will want to be as comfortable as possible (and look adorable) while they lounge in the ski house or the lodge bar. Either way, these picks are sure to please. 

A sports bra that isn't too stiff but will still hold your ta-ta's and a moisture-wicking thong that's also super-comfortable (I know, it sounds weird but these are also TERRIFIC for yoga - multipurpose!) are ideal underwear choices for the active love of your life. And you'll also want to give her a super-soft and comfortable loungewear set (and yes, I'm including this BTS Lingerie set again because I LOVE IT) and a super-chic hat to top it all off. Trust me, you'll get extra points for going to Barneys.

Tempting Tuesdays: The I-Want-Swimwear Edition, Part II

Tuesdays will feature a lustworthy lingerie set and a suggested retailer. I think we all need a little something beautiful to at least look at to get us through the week. Hope you love them as much as I do!

1. Mara Hoffman Aztec-print Balconette Bikini
I saw this in a recent issue of SELF magazine, and I fell in love... (and it may be the reason I skipped a bagel and had oatmeal yesterday morning). I adore the contrast between the ruffle detail and the super-graphic bold print. Plus the halter strap is removable, which is always a plus. I like choice.

Available at, $220.

2. Rosa Cha Ruched Printed Swimsuit
Who doesn't love figure-forgiving ruching and a bright floral print? Check out the awesome cutout detail in the back too. This one can also double as a bodysuit, so throw on some high-waisted trousers (I told you, I'm obsessed with high-waisted) and your favorite heels, et voilĂ —a killer summer look that won't limit this suit to just the pool.

Available at, $350.

3. Camilla and Marc High Sun Bikini
I love how this color-blocked bikini reminds me of a certain t-shirt everyone seemed to have in the late 80's. The little bow details give it a sweet touch, and look—high-waisted done right!

Available at Anthropologie. Top, $88. Bottom, $98.

4. Diane von Furstenberg Pan String Bikini
Your basic string bikini with a print composed of different colors that normally wouldn't seem to go together, but DvF somehow makes it work. ...Probably because she's DvF, but whatever. I love that despite how the print has darker colors, the bright green is what catches my attention.

Available at Barneys, $185.

5. Eberjey First Mate Bikini
I mean, c'mon. If you can't understand why this one is just so completely adorable, I don't know why you read my blog. Ok, sorry that was kind of mean. But really—this preppy swimwear done right. A rope halterneck for nautical stripes? Yes, please. The option to wear this as a bandeau top instead of a halter? Yes, please! Well done, Eberjey, well done.
Available at Phoebe Top, $74. Camilla Bottoms, $62.

Hump Day Pick: 3.1 Phillip Lim Floral Printed Soft Bralette & Cheeky Pant

Um, hello gorgeous! I love 3.1 Phillip Lim ready-to-wear, but his lingerie collection is an absolute favorite of mine. I adore the style of this bralette and it's always produced every season in different colors and prints. When I saw this one, I may have almost started whimpering in my head because it's so darn pretty. I love especially love how you don't notice that the print is washed out/reversed until you see a peek of the inside of the bottoms and how vivid the florals are! Future hubbie, take note.

Soft bralette, $115. Cheeky bottoms, $115. Available at Barneys New York.
