Memorial Day is the un-official kick-off for summer. In honor of upcoming long, languorous days, some of my favorite things:
1). A billowy, feminine blouse from Doen. There are a fresh crop of summer perfect blouses (and dresses) on their site. I love this one because it reminds me of a vintage damask you’d make curtains out of, plus the dusty green/blue shade is beautiful.
2) Listening to Ladada’s Comets and Seu Jorge’s The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions. Ladada’s music feels a bit like a surf band to me, while Brazilian Jorge’s mellow renditions of Bowie songs are the perfect backdrop for doing another of my favorite summer pastimes….
3) Drinking classic daquiris. Rum, fresh lime juice, simple syrup. So easy, so refreshing.
4) When it’s a rainy summer weekend day (like it is sadly here now), I like to watch La Piscine, the highly-stylized Sixties French whodunit starring the gorgeous Romy Schneider and Alain Delon. Who doesn’t enjoy a little Cote d’Azur glamour?
