I’ve rediscovered the radish and am using it in a myriad of ways. From roasted to shaved raw with a mandoline, my fave root vegetable this summer is also really good for you. Bon Appétit has some fantastic radish recipes as does Martha Stewart. I found this article on storing after harvest and The Washington Post has a piece on winter radishes.

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Fifth up LA and NYC-based handbag designer, Agnes Baddoo:
“I love sailor pants for the flattering feminine fit in the waist and the breezy, wide but straight, leg. Worn grazing just below the ankle, hovering above the foot, they look great with flats like these Moroccan babou by my friend Mariko, a heeled espadrille, or sandals. My pants are vintage, a similar pair are the Jesse Kamm sailor pants in Salt.” Agnes

Instead of putting together a collage of hostess gifts, I thought I’d turn the tables and run this page from July-August Veranda on items to spruce up your home in preparation for houseguests. Many, actually, would make great hostess gifts—anything from the Aerin x Williams-Sonoma collaboration would be appreciated, and the Dempsey and Carroll note pads are always a good idea.
A few months ago I put a Vanessa Seward red dress in the kic shop and eyed it from time to time. My friend bought it and loves it, but, by the time I decided to try it, my size was sold out. The Joseph dress on the left is in my cart, it looks like a forever piece.

Women’s tennis is certainly interesting these days with Serena on hiatus while pregnant and Venus back in the game in a big way. At Wimbledon, Kerber and Halep are out, and Magdalena Rybarikova above just beat Coco Vandeweghe—the women’s semi final matches should be exciting.
These Steven Meisel pictures are from an extensive story in the July issue of Vogue Italia—the first issue under editor in chief Emanuele Farneti. The casting is terrific.
I’ve yet to be bitten by the jumpsuit bug, but Milan-based architect Barbara Ghidoni of the firm Storage Associati looks pretty fab in this one. Her tank watch and single bangle are chic, too.

This navy, wool-felt, duffel-esque Prada jacket is so adorable, I put together a look just so I could post on it—shameless, I’m aware. And did I mention that the hood is detachable? I’m smitten.

I posted on these Chloé Perry pumps just moments after I saw them on the runway last March. The ankle strap and brogue detail are like a siren song to me. Not sure if I’ll go with a t-strap, or which color, but I do know that a pair is on my fall wish list.
