Eyelet Envy:

My favorite Summer looks usually revolve around key eyelet pieces.  They make for the perfect boho chic outfits, can be worn for day and night and they just look like Summer (lightweight, ethereal, and the list goes on).  I’ve scoured up my favorites, and ones I’ll be buying for not only this season but seasons to come.  After all, eyelet never goes out of style and I like to invest in pieces that have classic elements.

Zadig & Voltaire Camil Camisole:  I kicked myself for not buying this in Paris from the Z&V store but obviously am elated now that I found it here!

 dRA Charmant Dress:  I’ll be living in this during the day with flat gladiators or at night with my new mules.

Ella Moss Dina Eyelet Shorts:  I love these paired with a camisole at night or a fitted tank tucked in.

Hanky Panky Eyelet Crop Tank:  Forget this as lingerie, wear it out!  This is perfect paired with high waisted jeans or even denim cut-offs.

dRA Heather Skirt: I’ve been obsessed with finding the perfect white breezy Summer skirt that I can wear during the day with a t-shirt or at night with a cropped top, and this is exactly that.

Plain White Ts:

I’m a big fan of wearing a plain white t-shirt paired with jeans, but there needs to be some sort of “wow” factor so it pops a little.  When I bought these mules I knew I would live in them this Summer (after all, they kind of make the outfit), but I also immediately thought that they’d be cute with a super basic outfit.  I’m also not just wearing any white t-shirt, but a linen one (which doesn’t mean it’s more expensive than your cotton one).  I’ve been obsessed with these linen ones lately because they’re a little dressier than just a basic cotton t, and they’re comfy!

Epic Yoga:

This week I did something I’ve been wanting to get back to doing for a long time- vinyasa yoga.   When I lived in Tribeca I frequented Core Pilates, then when I got pregnant with my daughter I swore by prenatal yoga, and then it sort of slipped by the wayside and was replaced with running and spinning.  I never have an hour to hour and fifteen minutes of pure me time (if you see me at the gym it’s 45 minutes max to sweat out a few miles and do abs) so going to the renowned Renee Diamond’s yoga class at Equinox was a treat to say the least.  I actually wasn’t terrible (although my fellow classmates may think otherwise) and I was surprised at how strong my body was.  The class was hard, fun (she played hip hop music throughout including G-Eazy x Bebe Rexha) and kept moving, which I like.  Renee is the creator of DiamondFit, a whole-body fitness program that combines carefully guided yoga postures with targeted strength training.  Renee is somewhat of a yoga goddess and known in the industry. She has been delivering the DiamondFit Method for over 30 years in LA, Germany and NY.  If you can get to an Equinox vinyasa yoga class, great.  But if you can get to Renee Diamond’s, well even better.  My new goal is to be able to do a headstand…one day.

Bklyn In The House:

Saturday night we had a friend’s wedding dinner in Brooklyn, specifically Williamsburg.  The attire was casual but of course ya gotta have some tszuj to dress up the jeans.  I love pairing one formal component with a less formal one for the right combo.  In this case, my sequin jacket with my new and favorite Hudson jeans that I literally wore the entire day from 8 am when I got dressed (they’re like wearing sweatpants and the longer you wear them the more comfy they get).

PS: The restaurant we ate at, Black Tree, was awesome–very eclectic and very delicious.  More on that in a near future post as we became buddies with the owner, and a restauranteur’s story on how he got there is never boring.

Best Deal Beach Tote:

This whole colorful/boho chic/pom-pom trend isn’t going anywhere fast.  It’s super fun and gives a warm welcome to Summer (hello, I’ll be happy with a sunny day amid all this rain!).  This Geo-Tribal Beach Tote from Asos is so cute to bring to the pool, beach or sport around town.  And the price? Well that can’t be beat!
