It’s In The Details

The hem-stitching on this blouse is beautiful.

Maxi Madness, Cont.

Here’s a maxi dress that I love and have posted on a number of times—I’ve had my eye on this Stella McCartney crocheted beauty since I saw it on the FW15 runway. The navy version is great, too.

On My Mind

Maxi Madness

While driving into Oak Bluffs for ice cream last evening, we spied a gaggle of young women wearing maxi dresses. My mother commented that she just doesn’t understand the appeal of the ankle-grazing trend. I realized that I first posted on the popularity of long-for-day five years ago, yet, I haven’t embraced it myself.

I like a maxi silhouette when it’s done right; not sure why I haven’t bought one. I don’t think it’s an age or height issue.  Thoughts?

Summer Extension

I kept meaning to try Gradual Tan at the beginning of the summer, but as August wanes, this may be the perfect time to extend the little color I’ve allowed myself. I hear only good things about Aerin’s products and the packaging is beautiful, too.

‘Hustle & Bustle’

I picked up the September issue of Vogue in Edgartown yesterday; it’s massive and full of beautiful stories. Not sure Victoriana is my thing, but I love these pictures of my old friend Liya Kebede.

The Denim Skirt

The A.P.C. denim skirt that I bought in February has been great and will get even more wear this fall—it’s the perfect transition piece.

Monday Morning Must-Haves

An early fall look—the sailor pants would transition easily from summer to cooler temps. I keep circling the vest-turtleneck combo, feels super chic.

Isca Greenfield-Sanders

I follow artist Kathy Leeds on Instagram and love that she posts pictures by other artists. These paintings by Isca Greenfield-Sanders, daughter of photographer-filmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, could be snapshots from my childhood. Based on found photographs of strangers, these paintings evoke summertime memories.

‘Going Coastal’

The September issue of WSJ. Magazine is on newsstands and it has some super fashion stories. This is one of my favorite images—besides model Sam Rollinson’s winning smile, I love the length of the trousers.

Hair (On The) Brain

I’ve had hair, and more specifically hair products, on my mind recently. One of my favorite mini outings is a trip to the pharmacy – not a big-box drugstore, but my local, somewhat old fashioned, apothecary-like, pharmacy. It carries the basics, and stocks a ton of high-end and European brands as well. When I feel like splurging (but not spending a fortune) I hit the pharmacy for a quick fix.

‘Your Style Guide To The Pre-Fall Collections’

Apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks that the pre-fall collections are worth leaving the beach to shop. The Wall Street Journal sums up why this is the best season to find those ‘forever’ pieces. Thank you, WSJ, for including me in your article.

Country Living

I’m driving to Vermont this morning to see my older daughter. As much as I’ve missed her, I know how much she loves camp; it’s the antithesis to her childhood in NYC and her current life in Los Angeles. On the drive up I often wonder if a country lifestyle would suit me. These pictures of Daria in the current issue of Porter make me laugh—I don’t think I’d chop wood in Dries Van Noten or paint the barn while wearing Stella McCartney, but I’m sure I’d get looks if I did errands in my Céline wedges.

We’re heading back to the Vineyard next week and I’m starting to load my Kindle. First up, Ann Beattie’s new collection of short stories, “The State We’re In”. There’s a wonderful interview with the author on Vogue.

Sport Inspired

In the summer, I often wear a tennis skirt while I run errands long after I’ve left the court. So, it’s no surprise that I’ve embraced the sport-inspired trend. These pictures of Julia Bergshoeff are from the August issue of Vogue Paris.

Monday Morning Must-Have

Now that I’ve amassed quite the collection of ponchos, and if the Chloé cape is a go, I’m considering replacing my small cross-body bag; it’s the only style that works with both. This mini Marni Trunk  is just the ticket. I love that it’s structured, and despite the size, it can hold what I need.

Speaking of bags, it seems like there’s a lack of cannot-live-without styles. I felt guilty about stockpiling a number of Céline hobos, but I’m glad that I did because I still love them. What bag is on your radar for fall?
