I’m always so excited for new posts in this series but I’m SO excited to share this chat with Lauren and Kaki of Dudley Stephens! If you’ve been following me on here or on Instagram, you know that I fell hard for this sustainable fleece brand and in the past year, have amassed a (rapidly growing) collection of seven pieces. While they’re on the investment side, I’ve found the quality to be unmatched–they don’t wrinkle, don’t show wear after being machine washed, air dry insanely quickly, and are so easy to dress up or down. If comfort is a priority to you when it comes to style, I promise this brand will become your new bff. We’re running straight into “Dudley season” with fall temperatures and I hope you enjoy this Q&A as much as I did!
And before we start, I have to mention their newly launched rewards program, Dudley Devoted. I’m not huge for signing up for “programs” and having one more login to remember (who else hate saving their payment methods?!) but the rewards here add up quickly! Plus, if you’ve shopped before, your previous purchases under the same email address will count towards your “tier” even if you’re just creating an account for the first time.
I’ve talked about Serena & Lily a lot over here before because they make two of the most statement pieces of furniture in our little 540 square foot apartment! Our counter stools and side cart have been investments worth every penny and if you’re considering splurging, Serena & Lily is currently offer 20% off sitewide with code GUESTPREP. This is great time to snag them!
Since I’ve highlighted some more splurge-worthy pieces of theirs in the past, today I wanted to share some of my favorites that clock in under $100 during the sale. I’ve have some of their outdoor pillow covers (spoiler: they’re just as good indoors), set of pillowcases (their linens are incredible and I want to splurge on a sheet set next time we’re in the market), and napkins. While I love making some of our bigger purchases from them, I also love that you don’t have to spend a fortune to incorporate the signature S&L style into your home.
A couple things to note:
+ The 20% doesn’t stack with sale items but definitely check those out because they are GOOD!
+ I’d never noticed this before–I think it’s a recent addition?–but S&L has a “sleep on it” guarantee where all bedding ships free and is eligible for free returns up to 60 days after purchase. Shipping obviously adds up, but being able to give things that kind of trial run is pretty incredible.
Everything above + a few more picks, featured below!
You’ve probably noticed a lack of outfit posts in the past few weeks and I say it every year, but this is really the toughest time to put together shoots for the blog! I’ve been wearing a bunch of my tried and true summer favorites (some of which you can see here) and am itching for the seasons to actually turn. This weekend was the big “closet switchover” and since we’re still a week or two away from being able to wear pretty much everything I pulled out from our under-bed storage, I’m relying on pieces like this light wool sweater that pairs just as well with jeans as it does shorts. I actually leave it out year-round and wore it a couple times in the early summer…it’s old but continues to be a workhorse in my closet thanks to the fit, light weight, and neutral color!
