“Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror”

I cannot wait to see the Jasper Johns retrospective that will be in two separate museums/cities concurrently. “Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror” opens at the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Philadelphia Museum of Art September 29. A field trip to Philly with my dearest friend is in the works and, in the spirit of the exhibition, I may break out a bit of color.

Gucci bag, Victoria Beckham boots I’ve had my eye on since September 2020, and I love everything about this JW Anderson top — it speaks to me.

NYFW: In The Trenches

It’s nice to see trenches out and about at SS22 NYFW courtesy of Vogue.

On My mind

Eugénie Trochu Inspired

Eugénie Trochu has been appointed head of editorial content at Vogue Paris following the dismissal of editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt.  Trochu, previously a fashion editor and most recently market editor at the publication, will lead Vogue Paris’ editorial operations as it transitions to a more international entity. “Her role is part of a new global editorial strategy that will enable local content in all Vogue markets around the world to reach a new global audience across all platforms.” I’m a fan of Ms. Trochu’s personal style and winning smile and wish her the best of luck.

Pale & Pretty

As I was adding coats and jackets to the kic shop, I came across these pretty dresses. The Totême silk dress on the left would be fantastic with boots and a cardigan. The Esse Studios cotton column is warm-evening chic.

WSJ. Magazine

‘Pattern Play’

In the current issue of WSJ. Magazine there’s a gem of a story on interior designer Michael S. Smith’s five gorgeous new wallpapers that he created for de Gournay. We have been looking at wallpapers for a few rooms in our home and Nordic Garden above and Botanical Studies below are a dream come true.

Books

Fall Reads

I didn’t read as much as I’d hoped this summer and plan on catching up in the fall. Top of my list are Charlotte Perriand: The Modern Life, Sally Rooney’s third novel Beautiful World, Where Are You out Tuesday, and Modern Manners by The Gentlewoman available in the U.S. October 6.

On My Mind

September!

Thankfully, during these transition weeks into fall there are a lot of fun things to do that take the sting out of summer ending. Tennis! The US Open is underway and there have already been some super matches. I won’t get to Paris to see the Damien Hirst exhibition Cathedrals Built on Sand at Gagosian that closes September 22, but I am determined to see Cherry Blossoms at the Fondation Cartier before it comes down January 2. Fingers crossed. This Hermès look epitomizes the sumptuousness of a rich, deep brown — the best fall color.  And I’m continuing to build a jewelry wardrobe — love these Van Cleef & Arpels Frivole earrings worn together. We picked peaches in Vermont week before last and made scrumptious galettes. Apple crisp is up next. Welcome to September!

Polar Temps Predicted

When I checked the Farmers’ Almanac’s winter forecast, the word ‘polar’ popped up again and again. At the same time, my inbox was stuffed with product emails full of cold-weather wear. It’s only August, but if I want a new puffer I need to start looking now — by December they will be long gone. I like this grey one by Joseph, it’s longer than anything I own, and the wool-cashmere blend certainly takes it up a notch. It would look great cinched with a leather belt and paired with a lug sole boot.
