Loving This Week: a Transitional Denim Dress + Scrub Shampoo

Rachel Comey Dress - Valley Eyewear Sunglasses - Christophe Robin Shampoo - Madewell Boots - Stelen Turtleneck

I love how fast new beauty trends spread. In mere days a product can go from brand new to sold out, if the right people are delighted with it. There’s a new scalp-scrubbing shampoo that’s heading for just this kind of legendary status, so, of course, I can’t wait to give it a go.

On the fashion front, I’m thinking a sleek denim midi dress will be an ideal transitional piece for summer into fall. The layering possibilities are already dancing through my head: thin turtleneck, chunky cardigan, knit vest.

Here are all of the treats taking up space in my online shopping cart this week:

1. Rachel Comey Tenby Denim Dress, $368.00
A slim-fitting, demure denim midi dress is a perfect transitional piece for summer into fall. The lightweight stretch cotton blend fabric isn’t too much for warmer days, and will layer nicely with chunky knits on cooler days.

2. Valley Eyewear Ventricle Sunglasses, $200.00
I’m always searching for chic sunglasses that still feel unique in the sea of similar-looking sunnies that floods the stores each season. These 100% handcrafted frames are my newest find.

3. Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt, $51.00
This new shampoo/ scrub hybrid just popped up at Sephora a couple weeks ago and it’s already a beauty editor favorite. I’ve spotted it on more sites, and in more glossies, than I can count – including the annual Allure “Best of Beauty” list. It’s credited with everything from boosting scalp hydration to relieving the stinging and itchiness that sometimes follows a particularly aggressive hair coloring session.

4. Madewell The Caleb Boot, $238.00
There’s no shortage of perfectly fabulous block-heel booties in stores this fall. But, this new specimen offers a smart combination of good looks, walkable 3.5” heel, and affordable price. Plus, Madewell is known for marking down prices early and often. I’d hold out for a discount, then pounce.

5. Stelen Turtleneck Sweater, $78.00
This mid-weight cotton knit is less precious than your standard pink, but with just enough color to add a little punch to an otherwise neutral wardrobe. Bonus points for the striking proportion of sleeve to torso, which will make for excellent layering.
