On The Hunt For

A Navy Blazer

Emmanuelle Alt

I’m now looking for a new navy blazer in earnest. Like the Balmain favored by Emmanuelle Alt, I want one that’s perfect with jeans.

Inspired By

Equestrian

Charlotte Casiraghi

For us, summer = riding. We got off to a slow start this season since we changed barns and have had a bit of a struggle finding the right horse for my younger daughter. But it’s all looking up.

While shopping for a new show jacket, I had an “aha” moment– my fall inspiration was right before my eyes. A navy blazer and trim top, paired with either jeans or classic trousers, will be my cooler weather run-around look.

Jump Through Hoops

Gold hoops

Despite all the great dangly earrings this summer, my go-tos are gold hoops. They just feel right.

Tablecloth Tip

Conde Nast Living

I just picked up the Condé Nast Living Outdoor Style issue. There are lots of enviable gardens and pools pictured, but my favorite bit is this alfresco table at photographer Oberto Gili’s Italian farm. The best styling tip is the gorgeous piece of fabric layered over a simple white cloth.

I’ve collected many stunning remnants that are not large enough to cover my table, and this would be a clever way to use them.

Felt Fever

Felt

I’m a huge felt fan, and there are a number of great pieces in my favorite fabric this fall. The Marni sandals, like the slides I posted on a few weeks ago, may need to be mine.

Hostess Gifts

Honey

Summer cocktail party season is in full swing, so I’m stocking up on hostess gifts. I love to give local honey, but could use some suggestions on other great gift ideas. The only present I won’t take is flowers– the hostess has to stop what she’s doing to put them in water.

The Ultimate Slide

Hermes

The Hermès Oran is the original leather slide in my book. I have two pairs and neither has seen the light of day in years (really, years and years). I’m inspired by Danish blogger Pernille Teisbaek’s red ones and will pull mine out. If they feel right again, I may consider a new pair in gold box leather below.

Mélange’s Moment

Mélange

Mélange knits, on many of the f/w runways, have caught my eye; especially the ones at Céline and Stella McCartney. The mixed colors look fresh.

New Label

Vetements

W Magazine

I’m curious about the new label Vetements, profiled in the August issue of W. Designed by an anonymous Paris-based team of seven who met at Maison Martin Margiela, I like the “unrefined” yet, wearable look of the clothes.

On My Mind

Isn’t It Ironic

Farrah Fawcett

Farrah and Lee 1977

With all the posts on the resurgence of old-school sneakers, I realized that I need new tennis and running shoes. Isn’t it ironic that we wear Stan Smith Adidas with skirts, but not on the court? The new tennis sneakers may be lighter, but they certainly aren’t as cool as the classics.
