two things I happen to love

...60's French films in technicolor and Lewis. The Alison Lewis "Deneuve" dress for Target was promptly affixed to my summer wishlist a couple of weeks ago. I think it'd go perfectly with a simple pair of red canvas wedges and the steady humming of a Legrand score.

beachyFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

It is so sticky and hot out today, I'd give anything to go to the beach. At least I'm sitting in a nicely air conditioned office but it's really not the same. My apartment also overlooks a neighbor's pool, which I cannot swim in. So cruel. I'm making it my new goal to acquire this Sessun bikini from Steven Alan and head to the beach next weekend.

more madewell

I think Madewell has become the go-to store for my summer wardrobe. Everything is comfortable, a bit loose, and easy to throw on. Their sale section has several things that are still full price online which is pretty amazing . I had to stop myself the other day from buying every single item I tried on. Though I still brought home the top and shorts in this photo, as well as a tank and pair of jeans. For my next visit, got my eye on the Panama hat, Mara Hoffman bikinis, and trouser jeans. Can't stop won't stop.

suno resort 2011

My love for the label Suno just continues to grow. Their Resort 2011 lookbook has me every bit as excited as their Fall 2010 presentation did back in February. Here's to hoping Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty stick around for awhile. I mean... splatter paint day-glo galaxy prints? The whole collection is helping me realize I could use a little more cheer in my own wardrobe.

slow & steady

I've been terrible at following music for the last year or so, but intense heat somehow sparks a desire to find the songs that will allow you to melt into your chair, drink in hand, and close your eyes. If I had a car and some long empty roads to drive through, I'd want the same kind of blissed-out, mildly psychedelic tunes to listen to.

So far, these are the front-runners:

A mojito would be great right now.

first day of summer

I'm a week late with these photos, but here is what I acquired at Lena Corwin's studio sale. Bunting made by Caitlin Mociun, a perfect Mociun crop top that dips down in the back, and an Aesa necklace. So many amazing things at that sale, cannot wait for the next one. I feel like everything I bought really goes along with the spirit of summer. Simple, cheerful.

Sunday, June 6, 2010


I think I kind of forgot how utterly overwhelming summer is in New York. There's not much you can do but accept the sweaty mess and do everything possible to enjoy it. Some little things keeping me happy this week: new Dores necklace, calgel hombre nails, a few potted herbs out the window, and my light up globe which I haven't figured out how to hang up yet.
