ciao!


The last time I was in Sardinia was exactly three years ago, but today I returned to the largest isle in the Med with Milan-bred, London-based marketing strategist Giorgina Clavarino, who's currently on holiday there. Okay, so I can't indulge in the same truffle pizzas and bellinis as her, but I can still treat myself to one of her utterly transporting swimsuits like the glamorously belted Hunza G, below, (also here), the gingham La Perla bikini, above, and the neon Laura Urbinati (below). I can also flit around in her And Other Stories puff-sleeve mini (last pic) and super flattering, super comfortable Mother jeans, and take up her penchant for the flirty and feminine with this Self Portrait floral blouse (below),  dress and sunny midi.





back to basics


Although I'm not doing much of anything these days, my wardrobe workhorses have never worked harder! Button-down shirts, easy shorts, and jeans are putting in overtime--and that's an understatement. Lately, I've sourced a bunch of basics that are spot-on and right on the money (and perfect for post-quarantine life)! My current go-to's include the oversized shirt, above, the sleek slipdress (below, gorgeous with a white linen blazer), these belted linen shorts, these cropped and pleated khakis, and this jumpsuit.


hot spot


Calling all Zimmermann lovers! The Outnet is clearing out loads of summer statements including the cute polka-dot one-piece, above (which I'd also wear out and about with a wrap skirt or pleated shorts), this canvas paisley tote bag, this floral print pretty, these leather espadrille slides, and this linen printed mini. Shop the mega assortment here!

sporty spice


I live in the land of day-to-night Lululemon but my sportswear style inspo comes straight from Sweden, specifically stylist Emili Sindlev, who works workout wear like no one else. She actually makes capri leggings compelling off the yoga mat, teamed with an oversized blazer and Chanel slides. (These by Zella, The Upside and Nike do the trick!) Same with running shorts (hers by Prada), but these by Terez , Nike and Beach Riot are also super cool! (LOVE her Lacoste shirt, too!)

flavor of the week


According to my weekly horoscope, it feels as if I am living "in an eternal present, [and] in spite of all the world's chaos, nothing will ever really change." Call me crazy, but I think more than just Libras are feeling this way! However, there is actually one thing that's ever changing in my day to day and that's what I'm wearing: The AROSS GIRL x SOLER maxi dress, above, made my Sunday stand out, and for the 24/7 ahead, I'd love to mix things up in the Tory Burch white blouse perfection, below, the frothy, lacy (on sale) Zadig & Voltaire, below, the hot Red Carter one-piece suit, and the $77 Vita Grace puff-sleeve stripes, last pic.

round and round


When I put on this fun JW Anderson dress yesterday (on sale here!), my 11-year-old son asked me if I was going to a party. I wish! These days I dress up for no other reason than to feel put-together. (Which helps when the world feels like it's falling apart!) As it's been my custom as of late, I'd like to share some stuff that has stopped me in my world-wide-web tracks this past week, starting with the out-and-out glam Sandro suit, below, (top on sale here, bottom on sale here), as worn by The Tot co-founder Nasiba Adilova, below and stylist Charlotte Groeneveld. Of course, the knit top would also be cute under a blazer or an open white button-down. Also crazy cute: Chanel's just-in bow-trimmed Mary-Janes, below! If they're too precious for you, consider what the real Frenchies are sporting this summer: St. Agni's Teva-like sandals in sleek leather (for $150, no less, in b/w pic below). To make my everyday a little chicer, I snapped up a new personalized phone case from Etsy (below). Finally, there is Staud's brilliant new custom embroidered pet sweatshirts! Love! (You submit a pic of your pet and they will whip up its likeness. Available on their bucket bags, too.) Happy Weekend!





long lines


For this back-to-basics time, blue and white stripes are back (again)--and, as always, a surefire win. For this go-around, it's lining up in fresh silhouettes, such as oversized knits (like the Ganni, below), fitted tank tops and billowy blouses. I'd earn my stripes in this Denimist shirt, this  La Ligne sweater, this dolman-sleeve t-shirt, this cut-out Parker dress, this Saylor mini, and this wide-neck cashmere J.Crew.




shoulder on


While the weight of the world rests on our collective shoulders right now, it's fitting that the current "it" top shows just how strong (and sexy!) our shoulders are. The one pictured here is by The Line by K, pretty much already sold out everywhere, except here and here. Zimmermann makes an asymmetric version as well as does Ninety Percent (on sale) and Simon Miller.
