Summer is here–finally. It’s been unseasonably wet, humid, muggy, and flooding, and it’s time to bust out the sunscreen (Kiehl’s), the shades (Ray-Ban), the beach blanket (Surf Saturdays), and the summer reading materials (currently: A Hologram for the King/Eggers). With the hot weather come some of summer’s best essentials
Nude pointy flats, think Jenni Kayne

A little bit of American, a little bit late. It’s okay though, because you’ll be blasting this catchy tune long after July 4th celebrations have died down. Not sure about how I feel about LDR, but the girl can pick her duets.

I’m gonna do a little experiment here. I’m not going to put up the names of the things I have here, and we’ll see if you can guess the source. Another reason for this is because these images are for inspiration, rather than direct copying, one for one. They’re little hints of what I find amazing in an outfit, a shoe, a look–but the point is that they can be re-created without the actual brands in these pictures. Because when you have all the given info, where’s the fun of styling?
Five seasons deep, Mad Men still seems to be taking over the media (ok, so mostly just GQ, but still). And recently, real marketing firms seem to be stepping it up with a plethora of simplistic designs and witty slogans, along with their share of eye-catching artisan products. Here are a few I have been crushing on–starting with one with the best jawline.
Royal Tennenbaum chic
Menosunocerouno keeping it dope
Kitsune’s mix of culture and marketing is about as organic as it gets when it comes to consumer interaction
Feel a little bit like Don Draper when you sip
Berkely London brilliance
Seemed topical–plus the aesthetic’s pretty unreal
Few things better than a sick concert poster
