Jackie O’s Chic Summer Style

Jackie Kennedy Summer Style

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s style is iconic and remains an inspiration today.  Rather than looking dated, Jackie’s style continues to inspire women around the globe.  Personally, I’m most inspired by her summer style.  Photos of Jackie visiting the Amalfi Coast or swimming in Greece are the essence of summer chic: simple, classic, and timeless.

Jackie’s summer style is epitomized by chic separates: crisp white pants with a black tee; a simple sheath dress; and a classic black bikini (not to mention her ubiquitous oversized shades).  Wearing such timeless pieces, her photos look just as fresh today as they did when they were taken decades ago.  Decades later, Jackie’s style is just as covetable now as it was then.

Ice Cream is Summer

BuddhaBerry Yogurt

Yesterday my son and I struck out try the latest ice cream (well, actually frozen yogurt) shop in Sag Harbor (and also the talk of the town and Page Six), BuddhaBerry.  It was delicious, and they have roughly a zillion toppings (okay, maybe just shy of that).  My son emerged with blue Smurf ice cream with chocolate-covered pretzels (as only a three year-old can), and we both emerged with (more…)

Mira Duma by Tommy Ton

Though in my life I’m still wearing sundresses, in my head I am living in Fall.  I dream of capes and sweaters, boots and button-downs.  But the thing I’m truly most jazzed about when it comes to the upcoming season is something we all have in our closets: jeans.

I can’t believe it, because normally by this time in the summer, I’m wishing I had the kind of life that necessitated lots of wide-leg pants or full-length skirts or over-the-top fur Mongolian fur chubby coats.  After viewing scads of beautiful Fall clothes built for the office (or the disco), I’m usually dreaming of an entirely different existence to justify the clothes of the season.

But this year, thanks perhaps to (more…)

Fall Prep: All Gray Everything

Jason Wu Fall 2014

This photo from the Jason Wu Fall/Winter 2014 collection encapsulates one of the things I’m most looking forward to this Fall: All Gray Everything.  Gray is one of my favorite colors on any given day, but this Fall it’s poised for complete takeover.  You can easily wear it head to toe (and on your arm), with all of the beautiful gray options there are– from sweaters to shoes, there is are too many gorgeous grays to count.

I’m already excited about (more…)

Should I, Shouldn’t I?

Burberry cape

Oh man.  I cannot get this cape off my mind.  Sure, it might seem silly, because it’s roughly 80 degrees and summer.  So a cape is not at all what my body is needing right now.  But.  It will be Fall soon enough, and by then, this cape will likely be long gone (because faster clickers will have taken it before I could make up my mind).

Why do I do this to myself?  Why do I (more…)
