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.
A good mood in a shoe.
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.
A basket shape is so French in a really sweet way, and this one is nicely under $50.
I like how this seems Mexican serape-inspired, but is still quite streamlined. And it’s roomy.
The space dye effect here is pretty cool.
Straw and brown leather = classic and cool.
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.
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.
I’d size up on this tank and wear it as a beach cover-up.
I have wanted pineapple notecards forever and this one is so damn elegant in the gold.
Nothing says go-ahead-and-try-to-cramp-my-unstoppable-style to the wilting heat of summer like a deathly crisp white blazer.
A big, thick rugby stripe is so cool-Soho-girl-in-Agnes-B, circa 1989.
Just the perfect, graphic star tee.
Wisdom for the ages.
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.
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.
This Aurelie Bidermann cuff adds a nice touch of texture to a stack.
I do love a snakeskin sandal.
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.
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.
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.
A cheeky beach blanket built for two.
Just exactly the type of tee that looks great under a blazer, and in such an excellent color combo.
