It all started with this salmon-hued Isabel Marant jacket, about which I could not stop thinking this weekend. The silhouette is fantastic—feminine but just short of lady, and not too cropped, which is my main complaint with jackets today. But the real draw is that amazing salmon pink hue. It’s such a sophisticated take on a shade that can look anything but, and I love the idea of my everyday, throw-it-on-and-go jacket being a color other than black.
More rosy goodness: These baby-pink sunglasses are an instant good mood.
The super-light cream-pink of these jeans almost reads as neutral as khaki—I’d go up a size and wear them boyfriend-style, with a crisp white blouse or tee.
Exactly the mid-point between bubble-gum and hot pink, and suddenly, exactly the color I want on my toes.
The iPhone case I would totally be buying had I not just bought a new iPhone case.
Hearts and flowers, stars and cherries: how much joy can one little shirt contain?
The prospect of wearing something like this snappy little blue-grey blazer to work is almost—and yet not quite—enough to make me want to take an office job again.
Everything—the sleeves, the neckline, the hem—on this perfect throw-it-on jersey dress hits at the exactly right spot.
Ye olde asymmetric pullover.
A less expensive approximation of my beloved Maria Cornejo Gabi trousers (see also: here)
Cooler than a loafer, more streamlined than an oxford, and just the tiniest little bit punk: I love these.
No time like barbecue and picnic season to stock up on everyone’s favorite synthetic, unbreakable dishware: this charming butterfly is one of an unmatched set of four.
Etsy shop The Mad Platters is melamine central: right now I’m digging this oddly pretty number bordered with tentacles.
And finally: I’m pretty sure this serving bowl is the best melamine thing I’ve ever seen.
I first saw this picture of Velvet Underground-era Nico back when we were putting together the second Lucky book, and it totally obsessed me, and then I ran across it Sunday and it got me going all over again. I love that she looks all slouchy and louche and glamorous, and of course that she’s reading the paper, because she’s probably sitting backstage waiting for sound check to happen and is bored out of her mind. One fact I learned in my days of writing about bands is that they spend a surprising amount of time sitting around waiting—for planes, for equipment to be loaded off the bus, and of course always for their turn up onstage. And I like how this picture kind of captures that mood—of the stall before the rush.
