Escape The Heat With Art

Two massive abstract pieces: The Mural from Jackson Pollock and Untitled from Katharina Grosse

Both pieces are currently on display at the MFA Boston. Two artists that truly excite me with their bold large creations being showcased together in one space. I don’t have deep knowledge when it comes to art. But little by little with help from my museum buddy (aka my mother-in-law), I am appreciating more art in my life.

Museum memberships are great for short visits. Even better when you enjoy it with a friend. This exhibit is showing now through February 23,2020. MFA

Straw Party Hats For Sun Protection!

Love, love, love HEMLOCK Hat Co. Fun straw hats that are designed for an active lifestyle. I discovered this hat company in a surf shop while I was visiting Florida last spring. A hat that has you fully covered and reasonably priced. The under brim liner comes in super fun prints for every personality. The fabric is UPF 50+ and comes with a draw string for those windy days. Also sweet for the youngsters!

Beach Days + Sun Protection

Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while enjoying the outdoors is a challenge.  Who doesn’t love the warm sunshine and beach filled days?!  Applying and reapplying sunscreen is a must along with sun shades and sun hats. But still it can be difficult to protect yourself from sun damage and exposure. If you cover up with UPF clothing then you don’t need to worry about reapplying sunscreen to your whole body. Just your face, neck, hands, and feet! Or simply head to the beach after 5.

Putting On A Face

I’m most comfortable with a fresh, clean, makeup free face. Lippy and mascara are the only two make up products that are in my wheelhouse. Beyond that, seems like too many steps for me. But sometimes it is nice to go all out. This above look was not done by me but rather by a talented make up artist at Barneys. Here is a little secret for you! You can get your make up done for free with the expectation that you buy some product. I walked away with a glowing face, mascara, lipstick, and blush. Always fun to shake things up!

Sabah Style

Love them! Add these Turkish slippers to your summer wardrobe. The perfect everyday slides. Simplicity! No breaking in required. I was lucky enough to check them out in person when they recently traveled through Boston. Sabahs come in two styles: Sabah (leather loafer) or Baba (slip-on). I tried both. Babas in the cognac color easily compliment any style. A neutral tone that will only get better with time. Favorites for years to come. Ones that have earned a space in my suitcase for this summer’s travels.

Sabahs are handmade shoes crafted by a family team in southeast Turkey based on a traditional shoemaking method. A perfect partnership created by Mickey Ashmore who lives in NYC. They come in a variety of beautiful colors. Order online or follow their insta feed for pop up shops near you. Sabah

Listening To

So good! Billie Eilish is getting lots of air time in my house and in my car. Add her tracks to your playlist. Give it a listen. The bad guy video is so weird, a bit dark but also funny. She has a massive following and to many a style icon with her baggy street style. All at the age 17!
