What are the small necessities you can’t live without? I have reading glasses everywhere, lip balms, too. I apply the Aerin Rose Lip Conditioner before I go to sleep and it’s still on in the morning (it’s too sticky for day). Lululemon’s Secret Socks stay put and don’t show above the top of my sneakers, and tank tops are my favorite underpinning. There are essentials and then there are essentials — what are yours?

I love this Eres maxi dress styled with a straw bag and Gianvito Rossi gold sandals — it’s the perfect après-beach outfit.
I’m a crewneck sweater nut. For years I’ve scoured the boys and mens departments and have amassed quite the collection. Both Celine and A.P.C. x Suzanne Koller have crewneck sweaters in their FW19 collections. But, for a lightweight lambswool sweater that’s perfect for a chilly summer evening, I buy these (and go down a size).
Our girls are away this Sunday so we celebrated Father’s Day early. Instead, my husband and I will have a date lunch at the reopened Pastis (Yay!) and hit the Whitney for “Spilling Over: Painting Color in the 1960s”. And, just as I was reading the NYT’s review, my friend emailed that she’s enjoying Elizabeth Gilbert’s “City of Girls”, which takes place in 1940s NYC – synchronicity.
Either Dr. Barbara Sturm’s products are phenomenal or she has a brilliant PR team because recently there have been a number of articles that rave about her skincare line. I’m inclined to think it’s the former and would love to know if anyone can clue me in. xp
Every summer I try a new lip color, so Gucci’s lipstick launch with 58 shades came at the perfect time. To be continued… Available here, too.

When it comes to skirt lengths, I wear them all (maybe not floor-sweeping). Although I was a late adopter of the midi, I’ve made up for lost time — a black satin Anine Bing was the game changer. And, I just bought a beige midi-length ARossGirl x Soler dress, which will be my summer event go-to. Above are my three favorite midi styles: tiered, knit, and satin (navy here) — these will transition into fall nicely. This ARossGirl x Soler navy cotton poplin is lovely, too.
Lana Del Rey’s new single “Doin’ Time”, her cover of Sublime’s 1996 song for the upcoming documentary about the ska-punk band, sounds like a throwback to her first album and it’s fantastic. Gershwin’s “Summertime” from Porgy & Bess is sampled in the Sublime version. Del Rey is on the June cover of Vogue Italia and these images, by Steven Klein, are from the accompanying story.
When I crank up a song while driving, it’s because it’s a winner in my book. “Saw Lightning” is the first single released from Beck’s upcoming album Hyperspace. Pharrell Williams co-wrote and performs on the track — it is so good.
Congratulations to designer (and ex-Harper’s Bazaar colleague and friend) Thakoon Panichgul on the launch of HommeGirls, a magazine “dedicated to women who shop the men’s department.” The debut issue is on a limited number of newsstands and Vogue has the scoop.
