Summer is officially here! As with spring, I thought I'd share a few things I've been admiring for the season. I'm usually not an outdoors girl at all, but something about summer makes me feel guilty for spending time indoors (I think it's the flashbacks to standing on the L platform in the middle of a blizzard: the constant specter of Chicago winters looms large over our heads!). So of course there are a few inside-the-house treasures here, but lots of outside stuff too. Enjoy, and don't forget your sunscreen!
For fancy things, a Topshop peplum dress (comes in black and white, too, as well as tall sizes!).
And for not-fancy things, easy-breezy chambray shorts from Of A Kind by Atelier Delphine.
Fresh Sugar lip treatment in Coral (this new color is lovely and summery).
A needlepoint iPhone case from the darling Purl Soho.
Selima Sun for J. Crew Belle sunglasses, in a fun not-too-round and not-too-cat-eye shape.Malissa Ryder watercolor paintings...
A tough-looking Giles & Brother railroad-spike bangle.
