Salad Days

I co-hosted a benefit dinner last evening and my fellow hostess served salmon. Tapped to make the salad, I considered a number of recipes before deciding upon baby romaine tossed with goat cheese, golden raisins, toasted sliced almonds, and a balsamic vinaigrette—it was a huge hit. The process of narrowing down to just these four ingredients got me thinking about the infinite number of possible combinations. This summer I’m going to expand my salad repertoire.

Off-White, Too

In the summer, white paired with off-white is one of my favorite combos. So, when I stumbled across this Zara rain jacket, I snapped up two. The other pics, both from Pinterest, are on my inspiration board.

Beige Boots

I had an ‘aha’ moment when I saw the hashtag #beigeisthenewblack on Vogue Paris editor Suzanne Koller’s Instagram feed—I couldn’t agree more. This may be the first of many posts extolling one of my favorite neutrals, consider yourself forewarned…

Cruise 2017 Collection

Louis Vuitton

There are lots of sports-inspired and bright-colored pieces in the Louis Vuitton Cruise collection that was shown in Rio de Janeiro earlier today. I spy some great skinny scarves, a mini piped hobo, and a boxy jacket over a utility vest that is an exceptionally chic look. And the color-blocked parka would add a bit of zing to my wardrobe of neutrals.

On My Mind

@keepitchic

I’m trying to see a number of close friends before my daughters are out for the summer and my life gets more family-focused. Fellow blogger Ridgely Brode and I tucked into City Bakery on Tuesday for a long overdue catch up. I’m fortunate to have this dear friend who, not only understands the nuts and bolts of what I do, but, is candid with her advice. Ridge was spot-on when she said “your Instagram feed is pathetic.” Well, that’s about to change. Hear, hear! to an updated @keepitchic—I hope that you’ll follow along.
