Take Cover

Summer is finally here!  Insert “Whoop Whoops” here.


School is out for the bambinis, full time playtime has arrived.  #dogdaysofsummer

This is the perfect time to buy sun protective gear.

SPF a plenty… Skinhealth makes it so easy to stay healthy while still enjoying the sun!

Perhaps a rash guard or two… Cabana Life has been a fave for years (both for children and adults).

Maybe a fun sun skirt (with a secret built in compression band) that works as a great poolside lounging accessory!


SwimRISE has recently launched this clever creation, and even has a Fourth of July version, complete with stars and stripes  The brand, created by a mother daughter entrepreneurial duo in Florida, is sure to update pool & beachside elegance!

Finally to top it all off, a big ol’ floppy hat to combat the sun wrinkles!  Eugenia Kim is the queen of sun hats.  Also check out Regine Chevallier, her line of hats begs for an accompanying yacht!

Now go, splash, laugh, swim, play, giggle, repeat!

A little yard work…

Living in the burbs means yard work

Need to tend to the natural elements (obviously it takes a while for some to acclimatize!)

Neon is a big trend right now and to some neon can be a little scary…how the heck do I bring that into the ‘burbs?!  Click here to read more about the neon trend, as per PopSugar’s Marisa Tom.

Coachella Bella Bottoms

Skinny jeans are fab, no argument.

But once in a while it is fun to mix it up.  Bring on the bell bottoms!

bel2

Just be aware of proportions – identify the waist with shorter jackets, tucked in tops.

It is guaranteed that there will be bell bottoms at Coachella & Lollapalooza this year (click the blue words to see the line ups for each music festival). So why not start the trending right in the burbs?!

J Brand jeans, Miu Miu cropped shearling, Equipment shirt, Gucci belt, Lanvin flats, Celine bag, Tom Ford sunglasses.

Calling All Car…Coats!

Never truly appreciated the necessity of a Car Coat until the ‘burbs.

car1

Driving to drop off children, groc shop, the gym, errands, meetings, tennis, yoga, grooming (pets and humans), pick up children, take children to activities, pick up children again, meet with friends, shop a little (or a lot),  drive into city to find zen, etc etc etc.

A full length winter coat is nothing but a hindrance.

The Car Coat length is the perfect length.  Never gets caught in the door, doesn’t get dragged through gray snow banks, puddles or any other ickiness.

Coat by Giada Forte for COAT, boots Rocco P., Mother Jeans, Dolce & Gabbana sweater, Chanel sunglasses.
