Hey Hey Good Cookin’

Sometimes it’s enjoyable to cook, and other times it’s a chore. But it’s always fun to put on a pretty apron to do the task. I think this one, found at Scoutmob, is the perfect summer apron that is both practical and stylish.

Pretty Minimal



I’ve always put myself into the not-into-jewelry-kind-of-girl category. It required time and effort to think about that which I had no time for, and I never believed that I would look cuter or more stylish if I had some baubly thing banging around on my wrist, or rocks floating around on my digits. I’ve pretty much worn the same pair of diamond studs for ten straight years, some simple little chain necklace that could marathon for 2-3 years at a time until it got lost or broken or usually, both. And then, of course, the unwavering original solitaire wedding ring. Finito. But lately I’ve been enamored with the shiny glint of gold and stones and kind of realizing a desire to decorate my wrists, neck and fingers just a little. I’m still a minimalist when it comes to girl’s best friend but I’m enjoying a few new things to play around with, and seeing them adding a touch of art, personal style and simple cool to my daily. All the pretty things here can be found at Iconery:

Good Shoes Right Now

With cropped, capri, culottes and shorts all in style, and in season, shoes become more critical.  This season big, bold and shiny are hitting the pavement in a big way.  While I’m not recommending gold platform sneakers (not that I don’t think they are the coolest) I’m more apt to be stepping out in block heels and espadrilles, like these…


All Wrapped Up


A perfect summer dress. It will get plenty of playing time if it’s a good fit and comfortable. Whether for a poolside lunch or an evening party, the right dress can get you there all in one-piece. This beautiful one (above) by Isabel Marant will not disappoint, but at $865., your wallet begs to differ.  Check these out instead:
