My Signature Uniform by Elise Joseph

Earlier this spring, my friends behind Elizabeth Suzann relaunched their incredible Signature Collection. Liz spent a lot of time asking questions to customers, making sizing adjustments, sourcing the best fabrics and really honing in on the core offering. She is no stranger to this site, with her focus on thoughtful, minimal design, in-house production and the most luxurious textiles. I've often said I feel like she is designing for me, because the simple yet intentional shapes and the versatility of the entire line always hit home for me. I put on her clothing and instantly feel confident. This season, I got my hands on the Marlena Tank in Moss, the Georgia Tee in Nude and the Linn Tee in Olive. I've also ordered the Clyde Work Pant in the matching Olive color, and can't wait to wear them together!

These are truly pieces that remain timeless, offer you the ability to layer and easily switch up your look, and effortlessly take you from home to the office to a dinner date. I'm embarrassed to admit the number of Marlena tanks and Georgia tees that I own. When you find something you love, buy it in every color—right? They pack beautifully for trips and I even don't mind letting the silk wrinkle a bit. The silk is machine washable (!!!) and the linen is so lightweight and breathable. I'm so grateful I can buy from a local Nashville designer who puts so much attention and care into every little detail. My closet will forever be full of her lovely collection.

I'm wearing the Marlena Tank in Moss Silk Crepe, the Georgia Tee in Nude Silk Crepe and the Linn Tee in Olive Cotton Twill from the Elizabeth Suzann Signature Collection, as well as Jesse Kamm Pants and the Rachel Comey Mars Boot.

Pennyweight x Cocoon by Sealy by Elise Joseph

My husband Dan and I were in the midst of shopping for a mattress when we heard from Cocoon by Sealy about their new brand. I was so excited to try them out, upgrade to a king-size (!!!), and to experience the whole bed-in-a-box thing. I feel like there's nothing better than a cozy bed to get into at the end of the day, and the Cocoon has truly been perfect for us. We chose the "soft" feel which is like sleeping in the clouds, yet still supportive enough for our achey backs. It was an honor to partner with them for the announcement and launch this week—you can get a peek at our new apartment and learn more about the experience in photos, videos and an interview over on the Cocoon blog.

Pennyweight / 2015 Mixtapes by Elise Joseph

My husband Dan and I had so much fun putting together the monthly Pennyweight mixtapes last year, and we've continued to listen often. It's fun to play them in order, and it's hard to believe they contain over eleven hours of music! This year we will release seasonal mixtapes, with beautiful covers designed by the talented Julia Kostreva. In the meantime, I've put together one big compilation mixtape from all of 2015, if you care to have a listen.

All covers designed by Julia Kostreva for Pennyweight.
