People of the gallery, this is summer inspiration at its finest. The Vogue Paris crew brings us yet another beautiful editorial that is sure going to make all their readers lust after a vacation on the nearest beach. The beautiful Magdalena looks like the ultimate surfer babe and there isn't one chick looking at this that won't want to be her, if only for one day. It's amazing how simple and casual can telegraph ultra stylish - proof that it's all in the attitude.

On that note, wherever you are in this world, i hope you have an amazing weekend! With the second heat wave of the season in full effect, it's sure to be scorcher.


Perfect Style

I know i repeat myself constantly about Hedvig, but she really does embody aspirational style. These 2 different looks are great transitional combinations and so simple and effortless, with an exemplary dash of unoverbearing femininity. Precisely what I admire about her overall aesthetic.

Red & Yellow

Can you think of two better colors to evoke summer days? I don't think so! The sun is shining, there's barely a cloud in the sky and looks like it's going to carry through into the weekend.

Last Night's Party

Had some sort of black tie affair last night with the husband. I was a little pannick-stricken for what to wear, as you can imagine - those types of events aren't exactly on my day to day calendar - especially seeing as i didn't get much notice... but i ended up having the perfect little number in my closet. The white lace was a great way to stand out in a sea of black (again, as you can imagine).

They set the bar, and it's pretty damn high.

Last Weekend

This pretty much breaks down my weekend in photos. Such amazing weather, we frolicked about, staying local and chilling out just enjoying the sun. We've been doing Smorgasburg - a food market - on Saturdays, which i highly recommend if you're in the nyc area. We're food people so we can literally spend the entire day going from booth to booth. I'm currently living for the Red Hook lobster rolls, Maine style (the best i've ever had, better than Montauk). Sunday we decided to hop on the ferry to Governor's island, rent bikes - we originally had our hearts set on a tandem, but they were all rented - and have a picnic. It was blissful.

1. Hanging out at Smorgasburg, post lobster roll.
2. On way to Gov Island.
3. Me and my Townie.
4. Our picnic.
5. Posing by the water.


I'm obsessed with eyelashes and getting them a luscious-looking as possible. How fun is the pink option? Perhaps something to try...

Lark Tote

I've been on the hunt for a new all-around carry-all black bag (my current one is falling apart and the strap is not too practical) and my search has led me to the 3.1 Phillip Lim Lark Tote. It's nothing short of perfection: there are no gadgets or trinkets, it's a great size and it's a beautiful piece without screaming for attention.

Walking on the Moon

Ok, so remember when i got these and have just been wearing them everywhere and can't stop singing their praises (get them here)? Well, it's pretty clear that my obsession has reached a new level, cause i couldn't resist them in this arresting metallic hue. Yes, it may look like i just came back from the moon (or on my way there, however you want to imagine it), but, like a magpie, i am attracted to shine. And they remind me of these, but better cause they add height! Does life get any better?!?
