hello, sunshine

Just saying: the cache of (inexpensive) caftans at H&M is worth a look (or three) as I snapped up the embroidered cutie, above, along with this pretty eyelet, this Euro-chic oversized shirt, and this floral, ruffled dress.

swell shells

The beach isn't the only place you'll spot pretty sea shells this summer. They'll be adorning everything from sandals (Loeffler Randall, above) to bikinis (Zara, below) to necklaces (I'm wearing this insanely beautiful one by Jenna Blake, but I also love this simple Shashi). More shell shockers: this Rosantica hair pin, this Mystique clutch, and these Tohum Design puka earrings.

romy's dresses

After tracking Australian stylist Romy Frydman's dressing game all southern-hemisphere summer long (December to February), I've concluded: I want some of what she has! Starting with the just-arrived-in-America Zimmermann, above, which I spotted on her Insta back on December 7, 2018! Then there's the beach-to-Broadway Rixo wrap and Tory Burch caftan (on sale!), below. Also perfectly divine: the two floral Zimmermann frocks (here and here) in the last pics! Yes, to all, please!

double dressed

coliena rentmeester

Coco and I spent Saturday collaborating on a new creative project that parlays our passion for fashion and photography. You can start following us on Instagram at @ouiwant. The above snap, a BTS outtake from our shoot, is a peek at what's to come: a constantly evolving high and low mix of our just-discovered favorite clothes, makeup, accessories, mine leaning more beach, hers gravitating more Broadway, all completely shoppable. My dress is by La Ligne, hers Rebecca Taylor. (Love the tie straps on both!). I sourced her $15 sandals at Target, and she found our new go-to (peachy/springy) red lipstick by Pat McGrath on a recent photo shoot. I swear it's perfection!

rope me in

My Fri-yay Feels just kicked in with the discovery of these statement-making, wear-with-everything Ulla Johnson sandals on sale (today only!). I love the braided rope and ankle-tie detailing (read: outfit-punctuating). Other too-cute on-sale sandals that I'd wear (warm) day in and out: these very Chanel-looking Tory Burch pearl-studded sandals, these super on-trend multi-colored Havianas sandals ($22!), these ruffled Loeffler Randall slides, and these elegant, barely-there Tibi kitten heels.

precious cargo

Cargo pants are coming back. Again! This time around, they're decidedly more slim-fitting and flattering--more feminine than your old fatigues. I love this embroidered Madewell pair (also the classic and clean version), along with these by Re/Done (similar to above), Topshop, and Le Superbe.

summer stock up

My summer warm-up officially kicked off with a deep dive into Shopbop's sale of the season, chock full of everything I want to wear from pretty poolside dresses to head-turning swimsuits. (Take 20% off orders under $500; 25% off orders of $500 or more with this code.) My 80-degree and sunny selects include the fetching floral  Zimmermann dress, above, this splash-making Palmacea ruffled bikini, this gorgeous Melissa Obadash lace cover-up, these outfit-making Loeffler Randall mules, and this bow-trimmed La Vie Rebecca Taylor top. Shop the whole shebang here!

swim bling

shoshanna swimwear

Clearly, Shoshanna Gruss knows how to work a swimsuit--she's been designing her own eponymous line for over a decade, after all!--and accessorize with bonus bling! I am totally obsessed with her vintage acrylic heart necklace by Elisabeth Bell, above, and her shell-adorned Shashi. Other bathing suit-suitable baubles: this dainty WALD Berlin, this colorful beaded Maison Irem, this crazy cute layered Bauble Bar and this beach to street chic Anne Sisteron.
