A really simple thing I should have done by now

Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 5.30.47 PM

I have determined that it might be nice to enter the world of grown-ups by discontinuing my habit of employing magazines as coasters and stepping it up a notch. No longer will my guests have to make do with placing their drinks on water-logged copies of British Vogue: I’m taking it to the next level, and doing it with these clever embroidered cocktail napkins from Coral & Tusk. They’re not especially cheap, but since my hunch is they’re likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, I’m willing to shell out. My new coffee table is watermelon pink* and I feel these wee bugs will pop nicely against it.

But then again this camel also has its charms.

And this kind of preppy nautical-themed quartet is perfect for summertime. And yes, I am well aware that all of these are really super-twee, but I find myself caring not.


*Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.

The kind of towel that makes it very nearly impossible to lose sight of one’s spot on the beach after a walk.

Sandals that hold up better than flip flops when making one’s way across the deathly hot sand.

A go-bold-or-go-home tote.

A lightweight linen cloche: full-on facial coverage for those who aren’t nuts about a crazy-wide brim.

Cheap(er) and chic of the week

Screen Shot 2014-06-22 at 5.06.34 PM

It’s swimsuits, popover tops, and breezy dresses until the cows come home at J. Crew’s sale, where everything is currently (and fabulously) an additional 30% off (50% for final sale items). My pick: this this neon-trim tunic from their Collection line, which I’ve been making puppy dog eyes at all season. Just type in the code HISUMMER at checkout.

Capsule collection: Breton stripes

They’re  the perfect blend of Euro and preppy,  bold without being overwhelming, and probably the easiest-to-wear print there is. And while they do count in my book as year-round wearable, exactly right now is when I like them best.
