It's officially summer! School's out, life's pace has slowed, and gatherings lean casual. Summer calls for ease in every realm. Below I've pulled together my effortless favorites for the sunny season ahead.
UNIFORM | Australian label ALÉMAIS' latest collection of lively prints and colors have made getting dressed in this hundred-degree heat much easier and more fun! I purchased several pieces from Kick Pleat in Houston.
IN HAND | Our latest Italian glassware arrivals scream summer. I can’t get enough of the darling tumblers that bring the outdoors in with handblown glass butterflies, ladybugs, and bumble bees. Bonus if filled with Presqu’ile’s Chardonnay. This Santa Barbara winery will debunk all your assumptions about Cali Chardonnays.
LIPS | For daytime, I'm into Sara Happ's The Lip Slip introduced to be by our newest employee, Claire. My go-to for evening is Maybelline Super Stay Ink Crayon. A handful of shades are in my rotation — try Laugh Louder and Enjoy the View for starters.
SUNNIES | Always and forever French eyewear brand Anne et Valentin is my go-to for acetate sunglasses and I love being fitted by the pros at The Eye Gallery in Houston. For metal frames, you can't go wrong with our flexible and insanely comfortable stainless steel The No. 2 shades (stocked in both retail locations!).
SOUNDTRACK | My curated summer playlist is an assemblage of favorite summertime songs with an easy-does-it vibe. An ideal accompaniment to al fresco dinners, road trips, and lazy weekend afternoons.
ON THE TABLE | M A T C H Meals' customized meal plan + curated grocery shopping program has saved me loads of time and stress this summer. Choose from a menu of ever-rotating healthy, delicious meals, and M A T C H will email a personalized prep plan and curated grocery list. The ingredients needed are delivered to your home.
AT HOME | We have stocked both shops — and the website! — with our darling collection of outdoor pillows! The pillows feature an original painted mini check printed on beautiful water repellent linen and mold-resistant foam inserts.
