Food

The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook

To me, Martha’s Vineyard is home. We’ve had a house on the same bluff since 1888. As a kid, we’d move up in June and back Labor Day. Three months of beach, biking, and great food. My mother still goes for the entire season.

One of the most beautiful farms on the island is Beetlebung in Chilmark. Farmer and chef Chris Fischer, a 12th generation Vineyarder, just put out a cookbook packed with recipes inspired by his family’s farm— the perfect summer hostess gift.

Accessories Designer

Kendall Conrad

L.A.-based accessories designer Kendall Conrad and I caught up over coffee last week. Stunning in jeans and her own flat sandals, every head turned in Sant Ambroeus to check out the ex model. As a fellow mother of two teenage girls, coffee quickly turned into brunch as we discussed colleges, horses, and our similar lifestyles. The epitome of effortless chic, Kendall kindly shared a few of her cannot-live-without items, many from her own line.

My summer uniform:
Shorts, an oxford cloth shirt from Chance, my One Inch Ring Belt, a linen I Pezzi Dipinti scarf from our collab, my Martingala Sandals, I always wear hoops, any one of my leather cuffs, and I never go anywhere without my iPhone case.

My Music

Meg Myers

I’ve been listening to Meg Myers while I do the school run (which is now paused, thankfully, for the summer holiday) and her song “Sorry” has been on repeat. Myers is currently on tour, but it doesn’t look like she’s coming to NYC, sadly.

On My Mind

Shopping Rules

After I cleaned out my closet and made a short list of items that I need, I started to think about how I shop. More to the point—how is it that, although I have a fashion site, I don’t over-shop or have loads of things that I regret buying? Perhaps I can credit the few shopping rules that I’ve followed forever and swear by:

1. If I love something and KNOW that it’s a forever piece, I buy it immediately.

2. Buy two identical items if I think I’ll be wearing them often (usually jeans, tops, and summer dresses).

3. Always buy one in black.

4. Buy one fashion-forward item each season and wear it to death. Then give it away.

5. I don’t wait for the sales. I buy at the front end of the season, then I’m guaranteed to get the things I want. Sale is for those fun and unexpected items that make me feel like I’ve won the fashion lottery.

6. I shop heavily from resort and pre-fall, I find the best and most wearable pieces in these collections.

7. Shop online so things can be returned if I change my mind. I hate a “no return” or “store credit only” policy.

8. Buy basic evening and wear repeatedly by changing up the shoes and accessories. I wore an inexpensive navy silk sheath to both of my daughter’s debutante balls with two different pairs of Valentino shoes and my good jewelry. No one noticed, wasn’t about me.

9. It’s all about the underpinnings—bras that fit and flatter, petals, slips, camisoles, and tanks.

10. Tailoring and maintenance are key. Just about every piece of clothing I buy gets tweaked by my brilliant seamstress. I keep everything clean and maintained and ready to wear—no holes, stains, or loose buttons.

Did I forget anything?

Summer Essential

Shorts

J. Crew

Shorts are the foundation of my summer run-around uniform and I’ve been hunting for a black pair. These, in cotton faille by J.Crew, are just what I was looking for—I’d even wear them with a black tunic and sandals in the evening. Score!

They run large.
