Got You Covered, Fedora Style

Dune Fedora

Dune

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!

Caftan Style

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.

Oh Céline!

Celine Ballerina Fall

Celine 5 Pockets FALL18

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:)

Easy With Madewell

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!

Always Good With Jane Birkin

Jane Birkin is without a doubt a style icon.  The pictures say it all!  Her timeless and classic beauty inspires all (isostilo included).  She has an effortless and natural demeanor of the girl next door.  Her simple style takes her from city cool to beachside casual in simple classic pieces.  Her basic white tee-shirt paired with a fringed denim is edgy, sexy, and sweet all at the same time.  Always feminine but the rolled up shirt sleeves coupled with layered necklaces take the look into new territories.  Her style is hers and Jane wears the clothes.  Her casual elegance is perfection! The basket bag never gets old.  The five summer styles pictured above show all the basic pieces one needs in their closet:  tee-shirt, white button down, denim of your choice, espadrilles, simple bikini or a simple black one piece , and a woven bag. (Madewell, J.Crew, Net-A-Porter, and Mango are always good places to start your search)

COS Style

From time to time, I browse the COS website.  They offer fresh classic silhouettes.  I personally like their clean aesthetic.  I have rounded up a few updated modern pieces for those sunny days.

Three basic and easy to wear tops.  The white blouse has a sweet neckline but not too girly.  The navy button down shirt is a slim fit with a bit of a longer sleeve that would look nice cuffed a couple of times for a casual out and about look.  The basic tank needs no reason.

Four perfect skirts that will take you from day to evening.  The first white skirt is a lovely A line style with an unexpected side slit.  The beige skirt sits on the hips with a feminine hem line that is oh so chic.  The vibrant green skirt looks so crisp!  Loving the last white skirt with its folded over waistband and straight fit.  It is relaxed, casual, and weekend ready.

The one and done way of dressing!  Jumpsuits are no fuss and can be dressed up or down.  An oversized blazer can instantly transform this casual day look straight into an evening out with friends.

Getting On Board With UPF 50+

You don’t need to be surfing the waves to be sporting the surfer girl look.  I am a huge fan of the beach and all the activities that one can enjoy on the sandy shore but I am becoming less tolerant of the rays beating down on my skin.  Here are four pieces armed with UPF 50+ from Carve Designs that may do the trick.  Summer is short on the East Coast so having fun and sporty swimwear that has you covered from sunrise to sunset is key!!
