As I was searching for some inspiration for possible new sunglasses, I came across style icons Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway in The Thomas Crown Affair (great movie and will watch again on my upcoming trip). Not only the eyewear but the fisherman sweater, trench, headscarf, and neutral tones have me thinking they exude cool, perfect style. These pics also reaffirm that all these pieces should be in everyone’s wardrobe. They are timeless and classic. What else can I say? I just recently checked off the fisherman sweater and love it. I will be trying on the SM iconic style Persol’s 649- Originals as well as the ISBA from Oliver Peoples. Trenches and scarves, every stylish designer has their take in this department. So find your favorite and it will be worth the investment.

Love this summer travel hat from Tracy Watts. A foldable hat that you can tuck into its sweet travel bag. Besides that fact, you can wear it with everything and you can pack it in your suitcase! On a long haul flight, the last thing you want to do is guard your straw hat from getting crushed. The Dune Asymmetrical Fedora comes in a natural color with white, melon, or blue stitching. They are handmade. The raw edging is perfection!

Here is something to kick off your weekend mood. Adding Santigold’s latest 10 track dancehall inspired release of Gold Fire Sessions to my playlist! You should too. It is just what we need to keeping us grooving through August. Play this all day long!

It is HOT these days and adding a few more caftans into the summer mix feels minimal! They are effortless and chic. Slide one over a swimsuit or a slip to give you an easy day to evening look. These particular caftans are from Two and are made in New York. A favorite of mine. I am never disappointed with their modern take on the simple caftan. They are made from hand woven textiles and Saris from India. Caftans are the perfect solution to dressing light and perfect for a summer getaway. I will say that Two is on the expensive side, but buy one and your cost per wear will prove to be in your favor by the end of the summer.

The season for fresh juicy peaches and vibrant berries is here. Last weekend, the peaches and berries were on full display at the farmers market. I am already regretting not buying more of them. The season is short and you must take advantage of your local farmer’s bounty. Pick them yourself if you have the time. Such a wonderful summer activity. I have found two different ways to enjoy these summer delights from epicurious that if times allows, I will give a go. Otherwise, I will add them to my greek yogurt or enjoy them one bite at a time while lounging on deck.
Peach Salad, Blueberry and Corn Crisp from epicurious. And if you are really up for enjoying some peaches long after the season then this jam looks damn tasty (maybe it is the bourbon that caught my attention).
Hard to think about the Fall, but Céline Fall 18 has me weak at the knees. The oversized trousers and sweaters, the wide-ass-belt, and the leather dress speak to me on every level. The Neutral tones are classic and reflects a clean design. The pop of hot pink is sexy. I am a super fan of the oversized trouser that goes straight to the floor. Just walk on clouds from location to location to not dirty them (but maybe a little dirt would give them more grit). Swing the bucket bag all day long and right into evening. The ankle booties are ridiculous! Not wishing summer away but always fun to see what is in store. It is all in the details and need a few more 0s in my bank account:)

Madewell doesn’t need an introduction. They can really make your life easy with their stylish everyday pieces and reasonable prices. Here are five of my summer favorites off Net-A-Porter’s already well-edited selection . These are perfect for that weekend get away. BTW stripes and floral play off each other really well. Now just add your swimsuit, sun hat, slip ons, and tote. Off you go!
