This & That

Another hot day, another afternoon of dealing with boob sweat.  Not fun! We have a crazy weekend ahead and just trying to relax and stay cool.  We’re thinking of going to the movies tonight, either “Monster’s U” or “Despicable Me 2.”

Everyone is already lining up their chairs for the parade tomorrow. We ventured downtown and it’s already crazy.  People are taping off the sidewalk and I saw a woman with a golf cart carrying chairs.  I think 15 to 20,000 people go to this thing.  This year we’re skipping it.  Not in the mood to melt for 4 hours.  Just bring on the BBQ!

Here are some of my faves this week:


Excited for this chippendale planter from Home Depot ($56.97 each).  I am going to add boxwoods to these around our doors out to the patio.  Can’t beat the price.  I couldn’t find these anywhere for less than $300 when we were remodeling our back yard last fall.

One of these years I’m going to host a Fourth of July BBQ blow out.  Would love to serve these flag cookies from Etsy ($33/dozen)

If there’s one thing I’m a sucker for, it’s a statement necklace.  Dig this Koi one from Marlyn Schiff ($84)

Adore the design of this plate by Copenhagen ($130).  So beautiful and  I would use this for every day.

I’m a fan of green and white linens.  This set ($110) from Land’s End is on sale right now.  Perfect for summer!

Putting “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” with Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara on my summer movie list.  This looks like Oscar material for another Affleck.

Putting the Lake Placid Lodge in the Adirondacks on my wanderlust list.

Hoping J.Crew gets these awesome Adidas back in stock.  They’d be so cute on P!

French Vogue correspondent (now living in New York) Carole Sabas would give friends advice on where to stay/eat when they were en route to the Paris Fashion Week shows (hence her first guide, “Fashion Insiders Guide: Paris”). Makes sense that she also put one together for New York ($24.95) Wish I had this shopping guide when I was there in December!.

Had an incredible dinner at SF Mexican eatery Nopalit0 (thanks Abra for the recommendation!).  Great place for a casual dinner with your honey or fam.  So good.  Can’t wait to go back!

Saw a woman with this Lululemon tank ($42) on at the gym today. Very sleek looking and perfect for summer.

Hope you have a great 4th and I’ll be back soon.  Stay safe! C
