my posse


Perfect and right on the money for this summer's (less) travel and (at-home) leisure: Posse's wardrobe basics in high-quality fabrics. I recently discovered this Australian brand and its knack for effortless chic and infinite versatility. My go-to pieces: the high-rise linen shorts, and oversized shirt (cute over a swimsuit too!), above, and the linen cropped top, below. Check out the entire no-fail collection here!

wild side


Not only are TKEE's new print sandals cute (especially at $75 a pop!), but reeeally cute as a mix and match pair! Like a walk on the wild side, if you will.

cottagecore


The New York Times defines "cottagecore" as a reaction to hustle culture. According to Wikipedia, it's an aspirational aesthetic and lifestyle rooted in nature and domesticity, a blossoming movement stemming from mass quarantining and the pandemic. It emphasizes simplicity and pastoral peacefulness as an escape from modern world dangers. Angelenos, always one step ahead of the game, have actually been practicing this for years, calling it Laurel Canyon Louche. The bottom line is: I'm embracing it! And so can you with certain pretties like the floral Doen, above, (I also love this color) and the lace stunner, below, this striped and ruffled Lug Von Siga, this cozy-chic shearling Coach cardigan (that's on sale and will take you straight through next winter and beyond!) this sophisticated-meets-sexy Fil de Vie, this bow-back Topshop, and this puff-sleeved And Other Stories denim blouse, and this subtly embellished button down by Anthropologie (last pic).





on repeat


For my sister's first day back at the office--AKA a photo shoot set in New York City--she sported a simple but stunning tank top, above, that she's been wearing day in and day out while staying at home, jeans and a blazer. It got me thinking about my own re-entry outfit(s), which will be decidedly pulled back and pared down. In fact, they will look a lot like the ones pictured here: easy yet polished, suitable to go out and about or just hang tight. They will include casually-leaning pieces that are also interesting, like the Pixie Market skirt-like culottes, above, or the H&M eyelet shorts and relaxed-fitting denim ones, below. Also on repeat: a clean and versatile Nanushka shirtdress, this pinstriped, puff-sleeve Rebecca Taylor tunic, these organic cotton high-rise trousers by And Other Stories, the best oversized white button-down shirt ever made, this belted (on sale!) BA&SH blazer, and a perfectly-boxy white tee by The Great.

holiday dressing

marysia

There are no party shoes in my plans this holiday weekend. Probably no makeup either! But there are some pretty dresses and standout swimsuits, thanks to my designer friend Marysia Reeves. You're probably familiar with her now iconic scalloped bikinis, but did you know she also makes the cutest dresses (the kind that my sister and I fight over, above!), too? Check out her entire want-it-all summer collection, with me putting the best pieces to use here!

splish splash



I wouldn't mind making a splash this holiday weekend in something like the Stella McCartney cover-up, above, that's now half-off, along with these Chanel-inspired Zara slides, this on-sale Fendi, these Le Specs sunglasses, and this Montce swimsuit!

downtown denim


Everything about my trip to New York so far has been a literal trip: the desolate airports (on both coasts), the empty streets, blocks and blocks (and blocks) of boarded-up stores and restaurants, the dearth of yellow taxis, zero traffic, etc. It's a strange new world--but it's still my home, and I am happy to be back. I posted this pic yesterday on Instagram and received tons of DM's inquiring about my dress, so I thought I'd share: It's an old denim jacquard by Kate Hudson's eco-friendly line called Happy x Nature (on sale here for $54!). There are other cuties in the current collection such as this floral maxi and this wrap dress. Denim-wise, check out these by Ulla Johnson, Divine Heritage, ARoss Girl, and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.

set sale



Looks like the only July 4 fireworks on display this year will be in my own wardrobe, thanks to some new on-sale stunners from Shopbop, including the print Ulla Johnson, above! I also snapped up this fun Zimmermann bikini and these cute Kaanas sandals. Also compelling: this chic Staud summer-ready bag, this floral Sister Jane, these See by Chloe high-waist khakis, Ganni leopard-print pleated blouse, this Adam Lippes wrap dress, and these Slvrlake jeans. Shop the sale here!
