Summer Kick-off

Kitchen Clambake

Memorial Day – a day to honor and remember those who gave their lives in service. It’s also the unofficial opening act of summer, yet today it’s raining and 56°.  As I think back, it’s often dreary and cold on this holiday, the main reason I no longer pack up the gang and head to the Vineyard—I have not-so-fond memories of foul weather gear worn at the beach and huddling around the fireplace.

Regardless of the weather, an extra day with my family is a blessing and to celebrate we’re going to have a sandless clambake in our kitchen.

Seasonal shop

AERIN in Southampton

Aerin Lauder’s Southampton shop is open for the season and this year it’s stocked with many of the fab items from her collaboration with Williams-Sonoma—anything from the straw-wrapped bar cart collection would be a super hostess gift. The glassware, too, is really good.

Since I am a Jane, I need this ByTatoufa monogrammed straw basket and the orange swimsuit, too.

AERIN Southampton 83 Main St. (631) 353-3773

Vogue Paris

‘Plage Blanche’

I am eternally on the hunt for simple cotton dresses like these two in the June-July issue of Vogue Paris—they are perfect beach cover-ups. The striped one above by Mango and the white Zadig and Voltaire below prove that cute summer dresses come in all price points.

Tiffany & Co.


I am completely besotted with the Tiffany & Co. Infinity collection—so simple, pretty, and stackable (always a must).

Enchanted: Sofia Coppola’s Captivating World

Sofia Coppola graces the cover of the upcoming WSJ. Magazine (on newsstands June 3) and the accompanying interview is a must-read. The filmmaker and “elegant, low-key” style icon talks about her new film The Beguiled and the state of indie films today, motherhood, and her interest in fashion.

The Valentino resort collection, shown in New York today, is fantastic. I’m a big fan of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s designs for the house—love the hip-hop and sport references in this collection.

I Won The Fashion Lottery

Honestly, I’m surprised that my wish list items went on sale and were still available in my size, no less—I feel like I won the fashion lottery!

Force of Nature

It’s all about earth tones in this story from the upcoming WSJ. Magazine. It’s so cold and rainy, I’d wear many of these pre-fall pieces now if I could.

Bottega Veneta Cruise 2018

Skirts & Socks

Tomas Maier’s Cruise collection for Bottega Veneta is packed with the kinds of pieces I’ll be itching to get my hands on next October. There are tons of great skirts, and I’ve always loved socks with pumps—these stripy ones look fresh for fall.
