Inspire It | Wear It

Serene layers of blue, silver and cream unify a look inspired by the pool, but textures and patterns keep it from being boring. Of course, a couple of gorgeous rings doesn’t hurt. They’re from The Bradford Exchange, a resource for collectibles with a lovely selection of gems. (I’d stack the rings on my index finger to keep the look modern.)

Bauble of the Week

I’ve been seeing Lele Sadoughi’s jewelry pop up at more retailers lately and I’m thrilled that she’s getting the recognition she deserves for her incredible line. You can even preview her new celestial-inspired collection on Moda Operandi. I’m smitten with the "Meteor Shower" necklace. I can’t afford it now, but it doesn’t mean I’m not saving my pennies for its late-summer release. 

You can learn more about Lele in her "Behind the Baubles" feature

Friday Find Under $50

Zara sandals, $39.90

If I didn’t already purchase a pair of blue sandals in anticipation of summer, I’d definitely be adding these to my wardrobe. They’re the most irresistible shade of sapphire.

Right now, I’m coveting:

  • A bright blue bag for under $50
  • A tropical skirt - all it needs is a white tank and simple flat sandals
  • A little lime in the form of this J.Crew bracelet
  • An ikat tee that will go with [almost] everything this summer
  • This blue batik tray
  • Napkins monogrammed with playful three-letter words
  • Statement earrings that look carefree, thanks to clear crystals

For Home | For You

Is there anything more summery than this resort look? Even if you’re not jetsetting this year, CB2’s Acapulco chair and this swimsuit by Mara Hoffman turn the smallest backyard into a sanctuary (add an umbrella drink and a kiddie pool for good measure).

Bauble of the Week

I really admire the delicate beadwork that goes into creating a pair of Miguel Ases’ stunning earrings. Wouldn’t this pair look gorgeous with a floaty white sundress?

I remember coveting this coat from Deborah Lloyd’s tenure at Banana Republic back in 2004. Even though I had my Gap employee discount, I couldn’t justify the purchase on my modest college budget. But some things are meant to be. I stumbled across the coat on eBay a couple of weeks ago and scored it for $40.

Snapshots

It’s hard to get back into the swing of things after a weekend of little indulgences: dining out, at-home manicures, and a sweet lemon-scented candle.
