Fair Isle

Fair Isle

I’ve wanted a Fair Isle sweater for a few years, and now I’m determined to find the perfect one. The Saint Laurent is pretty good.

I picked up the August issue of Vogue at the Dartmouth Bookstore in Hanover, N.H. yesterday and was thrilled to see a story on one of my favorite photographers, Tina Barney. Vogue talks with Barney about her signature photographs of Waspy American families and European gentry, and where she’s headed creatively.

Below, a few of my favorite Tina Barney photographs

Into The Woods

Helmut Newton

I’m driving up to Vermont to have lunch with my older daughter today. I haven’t seen her in over a month and miss her terribly. She loves camp life and being in the woods, and her summers there have taught her a lot. She won’t need to chop wood at college in Los Angeles, but I bet she could if need be.

Gisele looks beautiful bare-faced in the f/w Sonia Rykiel ads. Leave it to stylist Katie Grand and photographer Juergen Teller to pull this off.

On My Mind

Mid-Summer

Today marks the midpoint of my daughter’s summer vacation. It’s bittersweet because we know that the second half always goes by faster than the first.

Many of my friends have not gone on vacation yet, August is their month. When I was a child, we spent the entire summer on Martha’s Vineyard. We’d arrive in June when it was still too cold to swim, and leave Labor Day when the evenings were starting to cool. There were July people, August people, and a few full-season families like ourselves. I remember getting back to Boston after almost three months away, and my bedroom would seem both familiar and unfamiliar.

I don’t spend the entire summer on the Vineyard anymore. We have work and activities that keep us closer to home. And I’m not sure I’d want to. All of my childhood friends still go there, however, I’m fine with a week or two.

These days, I’m more interested in exploring new places, rather than settling into one spot for a few months. I’m inspired by a list of amazing beaches on The Tory Burch Blog, and may use it as a travel guide.

Previously at Maison Martin Marigiela, Céline, and The Row, the French designer Nadège Vanhee-Cybulski has been named artistic director for women’s ready-to-wear at Hermès. With her background, I think she’s an exciting pick.

My Music

Alt-J

alt-JI’ve had alt-J’s “Hunger of the Pine” on repeat recently. The band told NPR that the song’s title refers to “missing someone — pining — [which] can be a physical pain much like hunger.”

Kate Moss not only stars in the Stella McCartney f/w campaign (for the 7th time), she reportedly styled the images as well. Love the mélange knit even more.

On My Radar

The Forecast Is Green

Fendi Valentino

A few weeks ago, I received a booklet that previewed the fall trends. Green was listed (along with grey and metallic), and at the time, I gave it little thought. But then I saw these non-bright-green items and understood the appeal. The earthy hue of the sweater is lovely and would fit nicely into my predominantly neutrals wardrobe.

On a side note, I had tucked away my Valentino Rockstuds. After a bit of overindulgence, I needed a break. But, last weekend I wore my sandals with a LWD to a cocktail party, and they felt right again.

A Navy Blazer

Emmanuelle Alt

I’m now looking for a new navy blazer in earnest. Like the Balmain favored by Emmanuelle Alt, I want one that’s perfect with jeans.

Equestrian

Charlotte Casiraghi

For us, summer = riding. We got off to a slow start this season since we changed barns and have had a bit of a struggle finding the right horse for my younger daughter. But it’s all looking up.

While shopping for a new show jacket, I had an “aha” moment– my fall inspiration was right before my eyes. A navy blazer and trim top, paired with either jeans or classic trousers, will be my cooler weather run-around look.

Tablecloth Tip

Conde Nast Living

I just picked up the Condé Nast Living Outdoor Style issue. There are lots of enviable gardens and pools pictured, but my favorite bit is this alfresco table at photographer Oberto Gili’s Italian farm. The best styling tip is the gorgeous piece of fabric layered over a simple white cloth.

I’ve collected many stunning remnants that are not large enough to cover my table, and this would be a clever way to use them.
