Alexa Inspired

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.

Alexa Chung, Designer

Earlier this week it was announced that Alexa Chung will launch an eponymous clothing line next May. This It girl has personal style in spades and I hope that Ms. Chung’s debut collection will be packed with the updated classics she favors.

The Final Straw

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 Cherry Bombe

Zucchini Spaghetti

Kerry Diamond sent me an SS16 Cherry Bombe, which is devoted to California’s food scene. Since we spend so much time in L.A. with family and friends, issue #7 is a definite keeper and will be my food guide on our next trip to the West Coast. In the meantime, I’m going to attempt to live like a Californian and make this zucchini ‘spaghetti’ salad with kale pesto and arugula flowers. Cherry Bombe profiled chef Amber Rose who shared this recipe from “Nourish”her cookbook with co-authors Sadie Frost and Holly Davidson. We’ve been spiralizing beets, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, as well as loads of zucchini. I sauté the ‘spaghetti’ and add anything thats around—it’s a great way to eat more vegetables. Recipe below: Continue…

Lists & Tips

I love nothing more than a good list, and a list of styling tips is even better. Tucking a turtleneck under a summer dress is something I will try this fall. Thank you, British Vogue.

A Really Good Dress

There’s nothing quite like a good dress, it stands the test of time. This one, from the Valentino FW16 collection, would do just that.

Summer Lunch Look

Weirdly, I have a number of blog-related lunches this month. It’s okay actually because I won’t feel so out of the loop come September. Although it’s predicted to be 90° for the next few weeks, pretty much anything goes style-wise in my business, and it is mid-summer after all. Fab shoes will add a bit of polish to my uniform du jour of gauzy dresses and straw market baskets.

Zara dress, Jimmy Choo pumps, mini market basket.

I bought out the dress in xs and will be sending some back, same with the shoe in size 38…

Missing Hedi Already

When I see a fantastic Saint Laurent piece, like this dress on couture show-goer Justine Lee, I’m sad all over again that Hedi Slimane left the brand.
