Redness Repair

This summer did my skin no favors. Every sunscreen I tried was irritating and I can only wear a light-weight foundation when I absolutely must. Many friends swear by Tracie Martyn products and this Soothing Serum on GOOP looks promising, too. Suggestions welcome!

The Edit

‘Neck and Neck’

Net-a-porter the edit necklace story

When I saw this spread in The Edit I had an ‘aha’ moment—I’ve been thinking about wearing a choker with a turtleneck and leave it to Net-a-Porter to do it right.

This WSJ. Magazine story resonates with how I feel today—I had a great summer, but cooler days and lots of knits are compelling.

Happy Labor Day!

The Slouchy Boot

Manolo Blahnik slouchy boot

Leave it to the master shoemaker Manolo Blahnik to make one of the best slouchy boots of the season—the grey pair is gorgeous, chocolate, too. I’m searching for more sizes…

Four for Fall

four fall items

I should’ve posted a September to-do list by now, but I’m not there, yet. Instead, here are four items I’m thinking about for fall. Slouchy boots look fresh to my eye, a denim piece in an untraditional cut, Céline Alphabet Pendant, and maybe, a beautiful print (this dress is Léonard)—the print trend certainly has had staying power the past few seasons.

Simply Sofia

These stunning pictures of Sofia Coppola are by Inez & Vinoodh for September Vogue Paris. The Cartier Panthère (Ms. Coppola directed a short film to mark the relaunch of the classic watch) looks especially good. She is sublimely chic.

The Perfect Levi’s

There are lots of jeans out there, but I’m determined to find the perfect pair of Levi’s—I’ll keep you posted.

The Boyfriend Sweater

Boyfriend sweaters

Alyson Walsh wore her boyfriend’s sweater in her “White Jeans Series” post pic. It looks amazing paired with frayed jeans and Gucci loafers—the perfect transition-into-fall outfit. I love the slouchy shape of these Acne Studios sweaters and they come in a number of lovely colors—no need to borrow from your man.

Light-grey, navylight-beige, light-blue, dusty-pink, and yellow. The corduroy trousers are Acne Studios, too.

Alyson Walsh’s Favorite White Jeans

Alyson Walsh White Jeans post

I’m on the hunt for new white jeans and asked a few of my uber stylish friends to weigh in with their favorites. Eighth up, editor of the fab site That’s Not My Age and author of the soon-to-be released Know Your Style, Alyson Walsh:

“Engaging in a little DIY action over a long Bank Holiday weekend, I took a pair of scissors and lopped a couple of inches off a pair of old Gap flared jeans (the Long and Lean style). To be perfectly honest, I resisted the kick flare/boot crop/whatever trend for quite sometime; when you’re tall, it just looks like your trousers don’t fit. Which is all a bit too ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin,’ for my liking. Anyhow. I finally succumbed to ankle-flapping fashion last year and have been wearing these Gap jeans ever since – my Acne ‘Hep’ white jeans haven’t had a look in.  This cropped style looks good in summer with flat sandals and a shirt, swap for Gucci loafers and a sweater now that it’s cooler. This old APC knit belongs to my partner Paul (Mr TNMA)-  guess that makes it a proper boyfriend sweater.

P.S. after every few washes I give the frayed hems a trim, otherwise the DIY kick flare jeans get themselves into a bit of a tangle. ” Alyson

Pendants

It’s all in the mix and layering of lengths when it comes to pendants. Coins look particularly chic right now and I love wishbones, too.
