On The Hunt For

Loafer Love

I’ve been hunting for a new loafer that is understated—no bow, no bit… This one by Bottega Veneta popped up in my inbox—kismet.

Here Comes The Sun, Cont.

Last summer I tried bronzers to achieve a golden glow without sitting in the sun. But I have rosacea, which means my face already has some color and bronzers are often uneven in the humidity. I was happy to hear that Gucci Westman, who has rosacea, too, is developing products to combat it (if you didn’t catch the video, it’s a must-watch). What I really want is something for my legs—for some reason, they don’t get tan even when I play tennis.

So, I perused Into The Gloss for some self-tanning tips and these two products got top marks. I’ll let you know.

La Mer gradual tan and here, Josie Maran self-tanning oil.

On My Mind

August To-Do List

The summer is zipping by and we haven’t even taken a proper vacation, yet. The Vineyard is calling like a siren song and I’m counting the days.

I have a few signature dishes and my corn salad is a family favorite. Fresh corn, tomatoes (peeled and seeded), red onion is optional, balsamic vinaigrette, and goat cheese—easy-peasy. This salad is an August staple along with purple coleslaw.

‘The Wife’ got a rave review from a friend who has great taste in movies. And ‘All Happy Families’ tops my reading list. Jeanne McCulloch’s youngest sister was my boarding school roommate. I spent my teenage years with her family in both NYC and East Hampton. This memoir is sure to be a trip down memory lane.

Hope everyone has a wonderful August!

The Long And Short Of It.

All of my summer dresses are short save a printed one from La Double J. I get a ton of compliments every time I wear it so now I’m on the hunt for a simple black one—tbc.

WSJ. Magazine

‘Center of Gravity ‘

In a post earlier this week I talked about wanting a new wool coat for fall. Many are too oversized for my liking, but a belt may solve that problem. Love these pictures from the upcoming WSJ. Magazine on newsstands this weekend.

L'Officiel USA Video Series

Beauty Call with Jane Larkworthy: Gucci Westman

An early kic profile, Jane Larkworthy, is now Beauty Editor-at-Large for L’Officiel USA. In the debut interview for L’Officiel, Jane chats with makeup artist Gucci Westman about her new cosmetics line, Westman Atelier. The video is fun, funny, and smart—just like Jane herself.

Westman Atelier is available at Barneys New York

It Items

Three for Fall

It may not feel like it, but fall is around the corner. I have three items on my list: a vintage Cartier Tank watch with a leather strap, a new coat (there are some good ones for FW18), and a black handbag that is not as big as my hobo and a bit more subtle than a classic Chanel. This Marni Trunk fits the bill and the polished calf is super chic.

You ‘Glow’ Girl!

Makeup has never been my thing, however I’ve been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s Wonderglow since it launched. The “glow” phenomenon is now huge and I’m interested in the skin care products that are a part of this booming trend.

Granted, skin is a natural extension of nutrition, health, and wellness, but despite the amount of water I drink and miles I run, my skin is very dry. So, to help me get that dewy, post-workout-looking complexion, there are a number of products I want to try.

Top of the list, which came highly recommended by my friend Kara, is Drunk Elephant’s C-Firma Day Serum—the entire line got rave reviews. I’ve used a serum from Sunday Riley and want to try their other products, and I keep hearing about Tatcha. I’m sure there are many more to test drive and I welcome recommendations.

Summer Tweak

Heidi Wynne Straw Totes

Pre-Fall collections are in the stores, but it’s only July and I’m craving a summer tweak. Heidi Wynne makes the best straw totes—the gold one would certainly add a little snap to my summer uniform.
