British Vogue‘s September issue, guest-edited by the Duchess of Sussex, is now on newsstands. This best-of-fall story, shot on my current favorite model Rebecca Leigh Longendyke, is fantastic. Jane How’s styling and Zoe Ghertner’s photography make these polished looks truly “c’est chic”.

I’ve been banging my little drum about the cardigan — it is truly a four season item. It’s no surprise that A.P.C. has a classic cardi in navy and grey.
Into the gloss
I had an ‘aha’ moment while reading an Into The Gloss profile on Jessica Joffe, co-founder of the clothing line Même Chose. Ms. Joffe shared that she keeps many of her beauty products in the refrigerator above. On these dog days of summer, this is something I think about but don’t do. I wonder which products would benefit from being stored in the fridge. Hmm…
I’ve been carrying a pouch since last February — it’s my favorite run-around bag. So, just imagine my excitement when I spied these on Kendall Conrad’s site. After a bit of perusing, I added a few other items to my cart. We have a bed of African Basil for the bees because it flowers throughout the summer and it smells divine, and it’s no secret that I’m on a crewneck sweater tear.
Diamond hoops, sweaters, pouches, candles, books.
On My Inspiration Board
This picture of Amber Valletta, wearing FW19 The Row in August Vogue, is on my inspiration board — the mix of white, off-white, and cream is pure perfection.

I haven’t been this excited about a film since forever! Arianne Phillips, the costume designer of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, is brilliant and I am fortunate to have worked with her on a few projects years ago. Thankfully, it will be blistering hot on Sunday so I won’t feel guilty being in a theater.
I’ll be away most of August and need a new swimsuit — a large assortment are winging their way here. And this tomato galette with garlic, cheese, and chives looks scrumptious — thank you for the recipe @bonappetitmag!
Fall Finds #5
I want to add some interesting knitwear to my fall wardrobe and this Chanel sweater looks like it ticks all the boxes. The Missoni hat is cute, too. To be continued.

Fall Finds #4
There are a ton of great dresses in the FW19 collections, so instead of doing a massive round-up post, I decided to put up my two favorites along with the bits I’d wear with them. The Chanel knit and Prada silk dress have been on my inspiration board since I spied them on the runway last winter – they are both very me. A goop cardigan, pearl earrings, Jennifer Creel personalized pendant (yes, those are my family’s initials), and Adidas Gazelles are my fav bits right now.
Fall Finds #3
For fall my accessories will have a 70s vibe courtesy of the Celine FW19 collection. I’ve ordered the aviators (the green lenses are good, too) and put my name down for the Crésy bag in both saddle and black. A Rolex fits this vibe, too, and I’ve been wearing my favorite that has the floral motif.
Fall Find #2
I’ve considered a knee-high boot for a few years but have not bought a pair since who-knows-when — ankle and over-the-knee have been my go-tos. But, I love the height, slouchiness, and walkable stacked heel of these by Prada — would be perfect with a midi-length skirt. The colors are so good it’s hard to choose.
