Entries in summertime (22)


Re-stock: summer fridays edition


It's high time to re-stock up...summer Fridays are mere days away!

ten go-to summer accessories 

My summer must-haves include this reliable weekender, floral head scarf, signature summer scent (love gardenia), and comfortable nike kicks. From the city to the seaside, these ten pieces provide me with stylish versatility for a season that finds us constantly on the go...



Tangled up in Blue

Tartan wool throws, fishermen sweaters and LLBean boots can finally be tucked into the depths of the closet, while summery discoveries you've long since forgot you owned get tugged out. With this little spring ritual, it's fun to rediscover the old (while repurposing in different ways), and of course adding new gems to your collection. For me, there's no greater perennial luxury than indulging in new set of crisp white sheets. Last spring I was smitten with green, but I'm currently having a case of the blues... 


Just Beachy

bobbi brown beach perfume / floppy hat / pendleton towel (fun statement for the sand!) / pink bikini top + bottom / warby cherry blossom sunnies / essays and stories / striped shirt (eternal cabana classic) / lavender running shorts soludos espadrilles (it's love for $48)

Blink and you'll miss it, but this spring weather is perfection. That means beach weather must be just around the corner...! I'm heading to the outer banks (north carolina) next month for a wedding and I'm planning on making good use of these beachy acquisitions. (Plus I haven't finished thawing out from this winter yet.)
