Mix And Match

Emerson Fry

I love that you can buy the top and bottom separately these days. Finding a two-piece that fits used to be a challenge.  I also love that they don’t have to match, 3 swimsuits = 9 swimsuits.

Pucci Perfect Cont.

Pucci

The nordic prints and 70s vibe of the Pucci pre-fall collection caught my eye when shown in January. One piece would add some much needed pizzazz to my wardrobe. I keep checking on new deliveries.

Go Fourth!

Sadly, it’s going to rain, so no beach or boating. But it’s perfect weather for Wimbledon and FIFA– at least I won’t feel  guilty watching tv on a beautiful day.

Happy Fourth of July!

Eugenie Bouchard

Eugenie Bouchard

This girl is the whole package– great tennis player, well-spoken, gracious, and beautiful. I hope Eugenie Bouchard wins her first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon on Saturday.

My New (Old) Bag

Gucci

Yesterday’s post on the gorgeous Gucci campaign added fuel to my already slow burning fire. I am firmly in the midst of a personal style rethink. As much as I love boho and minimalism, I’ve been missing my preppy, classics-only roots.

It all started with a handbag. I’ve been carrying a Givenchy Pandora for a while and I’m ready to switch it up. However, every time I was about to buy a Céline hobo, I asked myself, why don’t I pull out my four beautiful Hermès Trims?

And so I did.

Oh, To Be A Gucci Girl

Gucci

I loved it on the runway, and the ads are even more gorgeous– I want every piece in the Gucci f/w collection. I’ve pre-ordered the boots in brown.

Basic Black

Chloe, Birkenstock

Just a few years ago, I could count on one hand the number of pairs of black shoes I owned (my Rockstud phase took over my wardrobe…). Now I have plenty of basic black shoes that I live in. Actually, I own, wear, and love every pair pictured above.

Ancient Greek slide, Paloma Barceló wedge, Chloé pump, Aquazzura pump, Birkenstock Gizeh, Chloé flat & here.

“Psych Rock” is not where I’m going right now, but I am inspired by these two looks from Saint Laurent.

All Choked Up

Jennifer Fisher

When the choker first popped up on the collective fashion radar, I wasn’t buying it. The 70s version, a circle that clasps and never lays flat, wasn’t worthy of a revisit. But this one by Jennifer Fisher caught my eye– the open-back design makes it both modern and wearable. And the love knot is perfect. Would be beautiful with a white shirt and a tan.

Tennies

White sneakers, the preferred summer footwear of preppy tennis players (yours truly), have been adopted by the high-fashion set. The WSJ ran a piece on the best tennis sneakers for men, but their list is perfect for women too. The ones above– Saint Laurent, Tretorn Nylite, Common Projects, Adidas Stan Smith, and Converse are the super stars this summer.

Magical Molyneux

WSJInterior designer Juan Pablo Molyneux has restored a 12th-century castle located two hours from Paris. The renovations are breathtaking, but the indoor pool, in what was originally the château’s orangerie, is my favorite room in the story.

Field Trip

Kara Walker At The Domino Sugar Factory

Kara Walker

Week before last, my art partner-in-crime Lisa grabbed me and a gaggle of kids and we went to the Domino Sugar Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to see artist Kara Walker’s installation, A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby. The enormous, sugarcoated “sphinx-turned-mammy” is a powerful and uncomfortable reminder of the sad role black women played in the production of sugar. Only open until July 6th, this is a must-see exhibition.

Our next field trip is to the Whitney to see the Jeff Koons retrospective, stay tuned.

Summer Reading

Here are two books that I can’t wait to take to the beach. I’ve been a Sue Miller fan forever and her new book is getting great reviews, and Robert Galbraith, aka JK Rowling, just released the second book in her private detective Cormoran Strike series.
