The coolest new thing I’ve seen this week

So clever of jewelry designer Monica Vinader to put an individual spin on each letter in her new alphabet series. So many possibilities, all of them adorable.

Just doing my job

strawberry thief

The new Barbour/Liberty jackets are here, and one of them is lined in their Strawberry Thief print—a personal fave—and how could I not let you know?

Dresses with grown-up hemlines: summer edition

wijnants

This Christiam Wijnants number is so right out of my playbook: slouchy, asymmetrical, and in a fun-but-sophisticated print.

comeytoo

I am such a fan of the shirtwaist silhouette: so feminine but really crisp at the same time.

I’d wear this with a form-fitting  cotton slip underneath.

Here’s your most excellent throw-it-on-and-go option.

 

beaded multicolor!

I am dying over this little beaded multicolor slice of heaven.

Sweet and girly without being prissypants.

A super-easy under $75 option from Everlane.

A simple tee dress that gets important details—like the flattering neckline and elegant sleeves—exactly right, from Emerson Fry.

Red, white, and blue is just so classically summery and fresh, and I’m a total sucker for it. Currently idling in my shopping cart: this sweet tomboyish striped tee—made of linen, which always makes a tee just that much more feminine, because it drapes so nicely.

Golden Goose sneakers are stupidly expensive, but the cuteness of these can not be denied.

And how perfectly cocktails-by-the-pool is this very sportif clutch?

It’s the little things

When—after three summers of exceedingly high rotation—you wear your favorite sandals right into the ground, the only thing to do is go out,  buy the same exact pair, and repeat.

Excitement! Win one of these wicked cool Emerson Fry caftans

emerson giveawayNever have I been so tempted to rig a giveaway in my favor as I am now: these are caftans in which to stylishly lounge your way through the rest of summer, and to stuff in the suitcase for every beach vacation after that. We’re giving one away to three lucky ladies, and I am already desperately jealous of whoever wins this one. All you’ve got to do to win is enter here by July 6.

Things I want, things I bought

I have been wearing my new skinny army pants so much up here in the mountains that it’s getting a little gross. Even as I type I am wearing them, yet again. They have the best, most flattering silhouette (the back pockets are strategically cut for maximum butt-flattering-ness) and so much stretch—without looking like they do—that they’re as comfortable as leggings. The fact that they’re black adds a nice dose of sophistication.

madewell top

They’d actually look totally adorable with this Mexican embroidered top, which I especially desire.

To finish things off: this nifty clog sandal, in a pale pink that works nicely as a neutral.

Reader, I bought it

Because of course I did.

Yes, gingham

mango gingham

In straight-up black and white, gingham loses all of the usual prissypants associations it usually holds for me.  The print on these shorts  is just small enough to be acceptable to those who don’t like loud pants. And they have excellent slouch.

The black placket gives this shirt some edge.

DVF gingham

Love the interplay of large and small gingham on this cute shirtdress

Momentary obsession: woven leather

deux lux

Lately I’ve been craving a Bottega Veneta bag, but you can’t even begin to think about buying one for less than four figures. This hobo style from Deux Lux is a dead ringer for the real thing.

huarache

huarache becomes more than a just-for-hippie-girls proposition when it’s rendered in black.

billykirk belt

Braided belts are exceedingly French fashion editor.
