I’m here with my second Caught My Eye post full of five things that have recently sparked my interest! My Caught My Eye No. 2 post features an adorable easy-to-wear children’s line, two blogger collaborations I can’t get enough of, a romantic home collection meant to be treasured for years to come, and a new-to-me online destination for gorgeous table linens. Each one of these brands, collaborations, or collections was clearly designed with so much heart behind them. The internet can be many things but I’ll never not love it for its power of discovery. I hope one of these five things catches your attention! See my first Caught My Eye post here for a few more discoveries.
Caught My Eye No.2
Sail to Sable x Style Charade Summer Capsule Collection
The oh so creative Jenn Lake of Style Charade reunited with the preppy classic brand Sail to Sable for a cheerful summer collection you’re sure to love. Jenn was sweet enough to send me the ‘Charlotte Eyelet Dress‘ to wear and share with y’all. It’s the dress I’m wearing in the photos in this post! It was love at first sight when I laid eyes on this sweet hydrangea blue eyelet dress. The shade of hydrangea blue is PERFECTION. The tiered trapeze dress is completely comfortable to wear from day to night, brunch to dinner. It’s the perfect summer dress to wear to everything all season long. I’ve worn eyelet since I was a little girl and can’t imagine a day when I’ll stop wearing it… speaking of, this eyelet dress from the collection is also swoon-worthy.
Tabletop Shop Linens
Tabletop Shop is a new-to-me online shopping destination for beautiful, colorful table linens. It was started by the sweetest gal, Jayne, who I’ve gotten to know over email, after she returned home from living in Singapore. She built wonderful relationships with artisans and vendors while living abroad and decided to support those people by bringing their pieces to us! Tabletop Shop is special because stock is limited as most pieces are one of a kind. So, you won’t be seeing the same tablecloth or napkins as all of your friends! Tabletop Shop has so many beautiful items to choose from, it’s hard to pick a new piece for summer entertaining but here are a few favorites.

Harbour Children’s Clothing
I was introduced to Harbour this spring by a friend and instantly became a fan of the brand. Harbour describes itself as “Coastal-living inspired elegant silhouettes in high end fabrics styled for little bodies that were born to move.” I mean, how sweet is that? I want Rowan wearing clothes that embody that description. I look at the clothing and I instantly think “summer!” and “cozy!” and “does that come in my size?” I want to raise children with cheerful spirits who love to run around and get down on the ground and play. The relaxed clothing of Harbour matches that spirit perfectly.
I always feel good when I put Rowan in clothing made of natural fibers. Comfort at the core of it all! I also respect a brand that serves with a greater mission behind it too and Harbour does just that by raising money for children in foster care. It is a really beautiful brand inside and out!
Stubbs & Wootton x Mackenzie Horan Sea Shell Loafers
My lovely girlfriend, Mackenzie, just launched her loafer/slipper collaboration with my very favorite loafer brand, Stubbs & Wootton. Mackenzie set out to design her dream loafer by creating an embroidered crest design with two of her favorite summer symbols, sea shells and hydrangeas. The gorgeous loafers come in marine blue linen and a natural linen… how is one to choose!? Stubbs & Wootton are a bit of an investment price-wise but I can give you my personal assurance that the quality is impeccable and they hold up.
I have a classic neutral pair and a bright pink monogrammed pair. I honestly wear my bright pink pair more often because they are so much fun to slip on. And I adore the novelty-esque design of the Mackenzie Horan loafers. They are an ode to summer that will make you smile every year when the days get longer and the sun gets warmer. Important to note: I wear a size 6.5 or 7 in shoes and in Stubbs & Wootton shoes, I wear a size 7.
CeCe Barfield Home ‘Virginia Collection’
I am absolutely smitten with CeCe Barfield Home’s new Virginia Collection that launched this month. You know CeCe from her impressive career at Vogue and as the former senior designer for Bunny Williams but have you fallen in love with her own line yet? I first discovered CeCe’s home collection when I stumbled upon her beautiful floral silver plated cups. I was immediately struck by her and her first home collection from 2019. Her second and brand new collection, the Virginia Collection, really takes the cake for me (also available here)! I am absolutely smitten! The collection was inspired by Hot Springs, Virginia, where CeCe quarantined during the pandemic.
In Virginia, she was surrounded by her mother-in-law’s enchanting collection of antique linens passed down from generations. Her love for romantic (and sustainable!) family heirlooms was reignited and she became passionate about creating future heirloom pieces that marry old world craftsmanship with contemporary design and the finest materials. Thus, the Virginia Collection was born and I went weak in the knees. The collection consists of Belgian linen placemats, napkins, cocktail napkins, heirloom aprons and tablecloths that easy to launder as well as Parisian hand-painted plates and Armenian hand-carved silver brass liquor cups, cocktail pitchers, and trays. Everything is divine!
