Top 5 of the week

Today we have striped tops with a little something extra going on, just for kicks. First up: this cute (and excellently stomach-junk-camouflaging) knot-front tee with a nice, flattering neckline.

The variations in width of the stripes make this choice rather stealthily becoming.

Print-mixing for beginners, pre-styled for your convenience.

ruffle sleeve

The ruffle sleeve is so much girlier than I usually go, but the rest of the what’s happening here is so classic and laid-back that it totally works for me.


Not too much of a twist here, just a rather perfect drop shoulder and winning combination of red, white, and blue, which you don’t find every day.

I never especially wanted to wear blue nail polish, but then I saw this blue nail polish and now I totally do.

The dog ate my linens

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 1.20.36 PM

The new dog likes to chew things: rubber bones, magazines, and— most vexingly—bedding: on one memorable recent occasion, he ripped an entire set, duvet cover included, to shreds.  These were not-inexpensive sheets, and I am in no hurry to replace them with another pricey set. My friend Stephen suggested I check out Brooklinen, a newish site that offers quality bedding at astonishingly good prices. And I’m really quite happy with my purchase: grey (good for camouflaging paw prints)  in nice, crisp percale.
