Hello, friend. Today for my Five Faves with Annie and Cindy I have some classic casual spring wear BASICS that are on sale at 40% off (got to love that), a local linen shop, our son Tommy’s “hit” cheese fondue (easy–he made it on a weekday night) and more good things!
1. Local Linen Shop – Studio Patro
There is a charming shop that I like to visit in our neighborhood…but you can also order online!
2. Easy Weeknight Appetizer — Swiss Cheese Fondue
It’s heartwarming to see that our kids are friends as adults. Recently in Los Angeles, Tommy invited his sister and brother-in-law over for a weeknight dinner.
He made Easy Swiss Cheese Fondue as an appetizer using my mom’s hand-me-down (1960’s) brass fondu pot. It’s been a year since my mom died and I bet she loved seeing this!

3. Serena and Lily Sale on Everything!
If you’ve been admiring something at Serena and Lily now is the time to get 20% off with the code HOME like these covered baskets to store throw blankets (or anything like toys, laundry, etc).
And my large rectangular coffee table tray is also on sale.
4. Outdoor Furniture Studio McGee for Target
I saw these patio chairs online and thought they were cute with the brass balls. In the store, I lifted one up (heavier than they look which is good). I would just get two love seats though, some fun throw pillows and a different coffee table like in stone or cement.
5. Classic Casual Spring Wear: Basics at 40% Off At Banana Republic
There is a Friends and Family Sale for Cardmembers at Banana Republic right now so I bought two pairs of jeans that I really like for spring and summer at 40% off.
The first pair are fresh high rise skinny white jeans that have nude colored pockets that don’t show. I bought a 28 petite. They feel a little thicker which is nice and have a raw hem.
The second pair is a lighter wash high rise slim jean for Spring (shown below). I slightly roll the cuff
This outfit has the long riding blazer that I wore here in olive. It’s flattering and looks chic. Now it’s 40% off (I paid full price). In fact, most of these items can be found in the Friends and Family Sale for Cardmembers.
navy twill riding jacket • white button down • silk bandana (not on special but you may have one in your drawer already) • high rise slim jean (updated look) • Chanel Chance — light fragrance for Spring (Howard gave it to me and I love it) • Birdie Loafers (not at Banana Republic) but so comfortable • Leather Tote (perfect for all the eyeglasses that I have to carry around).
