dreaming of summer

My brain has officially moved on and I’m counting the days till we’re back at Lake George.  The porch, the raft, cousins, cocktails.  Bring it!

Everybody fell off and Hollis could give a rip.

In part I’ve got summer on the brain because you have to buy the clothes NOW or they’re gone by the time the weather’s warm.  I need a new bathing suit badly.  I’ve been wearing the same ratty top for 10 years because bathing suit makers do not know how to deal with small boobs.  All the tops have too much material or the band size doesn’t jibe with the cup size.  It’s infuriating.  Bridgitte Bardot simplicity without underwire in a 36A.  Is that too much to ask?

I’m digging this simple french top from JCrew

Perhaps a flowy skirt

A new pair of Birks since they’re the only sandals I wear.  Ever.

Okay if you need me, I’ll be here.  In my mind.

a simple fall wish list

I don’t care if there’s a plaid bullseye on my back….I *heart* fall!  What is it about people’s love of autumn that begs for hilarious mocking?  Yes it’s cliched and New England-y but I’d be happy with 12 months of this crisp, cool gorgeousness.

1. Gap 1969 Always Skinny cords….I just bought a pair (my first skinny anything) in navy but they’re so soft and comfy I want ’em in every color.  And they’re on sale!

2. Frye boots Veronica Short in Cognac Stone Antique

3.  Black and white buffalo check wool throw from Faribault

4. Jo Malone amber and lavender cologne

5. J Crew cashmere sweaters…from the men’s section.

 

It gave me a chuckle to create a “fashion” category on this blog.
