We had a brief respite from the seemingly never-ending heat wave, but the temperature is once again on the rise. I’m back in NY and planning some indoor activities, like catching the Diane Arbus exhibition that just opened at The Met Breuer. My favorite Arbus photograph above.

My friend Mary and I have such similar taste, we even own a number of identical items (like the slingbacks above, but in black and tan). This makes her the perfect sounding board when I’m compiling a wish list. We compared notes recently and this version of the Chanel slingback is on both of our fall lists—the grey flannel is just so good.
It’s no secret that I’m a head scarf nut and, therefore, delighted that the chic kerchief is back in style. There’s always room for one more in my wardrobe.

I know that it’s late in the season to be looking for a new pair of denim cut-offs, but there it is. Your suggestions are welcome.
When it’s hotter than Hades, it’s hard to get excited about fall clothes. But, the FW16 campaigns are out and it’s fun to think about cooler days ahead.
No one does a babydoll and low-heeled pump quite as well as Alexa Chung—Vogue Paris roundup here. I’m sure there will be variations on this theme in her upcoming collection.

Straw market baskets are a staple in my summer wardrobe. I have a wide range of sizes and carry a mini as a handbag June-Labor Day. Mine are all pretty basic, the most ‘out-there’ one has red handles. Some of these above remind me of my friend Amanda Ross and her amazing collection of straw totes, many from Figue.

In an attempt to tidy-up, I’ve been cleaning out summer magazines. Vogue Paris’ June/July issue is packed with great stories, especially this trip to Arles.

I was not an early adopter of the updated ballet flats, but they’re growing on me.
