Tuesday trifecta

Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 10.36.47 AM

Three wild and bright leopard prints—because if you’re going to go for it, summer’s the time. This oversized pouch could totally double as a clutch.

I couldn’t not with this bronzer.

leopard espadrille

A good mood in a shoe.

Top 5 of the week: beach bags

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 2.30.05 PM

A vinyl bag doesn’t make all the sense in the world for the beach, but the poppy 70s rainbow-bright sunset here is too much of a delight to be ignored.

pink tote

basket shape is so French in a really sweet way, and this one is nicely under $50.

J crew bag

I like how this seems Mexican serape-inspired, but is still quite streamlined. And it’s roomy.

madewell kenya bag

The space dye effect here is pretty cool.

Straw and brown leather = classic and cool.

Cheap and chic of the week

Screen Shot 2015-06-21 at 1.38.48 PM

The fact that I am endorsing this tank dress represents a major shift in policy for me, as I am typically, vehemently anti-maxi. But this one has such a nice, sophisticated neckline—a rarity for this silhouette—and slouch for days.

Thursday trifecta

Screen Shot 2015-06-06 at 7.50.54 PM

The pineapple is a symbol of warmth and hospitality, but it’s also just so cute—almost cheeky—and right now rather ubiquitous. This necklace is almost too adorable.

Screen Shot 2015-06-07 at 7.04.01 AM

I’d size up on this tank and wear it as a beach cover-up.

Screen Shot 2015-06-07 at 8.18.31 AM

I have wanted pineapple notecards forever and this one is so damn elegant in the gold.

Cheap and chic of the week

white blazer

Nothing says go-ahead-and-try-to-cramp-my-unstoppable-style to the wilting heat of summer like a deathly crisp white blazer.

Thursday trifecta: black and white tees

rugby stripe

A big, thick rugby stripe is so cool-Soho-girl-in-Agnes-B, circa 1989.

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 7.34.55 PM

Just the perfect, graphic star tee.

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 7.46.46 PM

Wisdom for the ages.

The most boring thing I can not live without

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 9.48.52 AM

My Clare Vivier Sac Bretelle looks like a whole lot of nothing much, but therein lies the appeal: it’s thrillingly light on hardware, with no exterior pockets or zippers or —heaven forfend—logos other distractions. I can wear it with literally everything I own, and it is the perfect size for the essentials—phone, wallet, lipstick—on those days when I don’t have to carry my life (or at least my laptop) around with me.

Sale season marches on: Ssense

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 12.08.23 PM

You’ve got to dig—Ssense is, after all, a serious luxury retailer—but deals abound. And because they are based in Canada, purchases are tax free, which isn’t nothing. First up: The slim lapel on this blazer is a chic little twist.

 

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 12.07.55 PM

This Aurelie Bidermann cuff adds a nice touch of texture to a stack.

Screen Shot 2015-06-01 at 12.10.50 PM

I do love a snakeskin sandal.

Things I bought, things I want; all in grey

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 9.14.48 AM

I hesitated before pulling the trigger on this linen tee, because it cost more than a tee should cost. But I’m so glad I went for it anyway: it hangs really elegantly, and—because it’s on the sheer side—looks fantastic with a hint of black bra peeking out underneath. If you’re into that type of thing.

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 9.18.20 AM

I could wear my new Crippen skinny trousers every day, and on my recent trip out west, all but did: they are so much more flattering on me than jeans that they make me wonder why I bother with jeans in the first place,and have a nice amount of stretch without looking all stretchy. They’re sold out in almost every size almost everywhere online, so you might want to try this also rather slim-cut pair from Emerson Fry, or these, which are from J. Brand and nicely on sale.

If there was any way in the world I could justify buying yet another pair of sneakers, it would be these sneakers.

And yet again more sale excitement: Net A Porter

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 12.28.16 PM

Do not delay in checking this one out, guys: the markdowns are plentiful, generous, and altogether tempting. I’ve been obsessed with this almost-too-cute cropped suede jacket since it turned up on the site a few months ago.

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 11.34.36 AM

A cheeky beach blanket built for two.

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 11.48.14 AM

Just exactly the type of tee that looks great under a blazer, and in such an excellent color combo.

Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 12.31.40 PM

This sale features tons of good sneakers; I particularly like these snappy leather Jack Purcells.
