long weekend

office is closed today for the holiday weekend. have to go run some errands - buy sunscreen, find a present for my weekend hostess, etc., then maybe lunch at candle cafe on the UES. i'm the farthest thing from a vegetarian, but they have really good food. does anyone else do that - go for a last ditch effort to eat healthy just hours before you have to wear a bikini? lol.


ITEMS (rollover mouse to view detailed picture)
Magda Berliner lace crop top (old, from
Rick Owens Lilies jersey pants (from eBay)
Giuseppe Zanotti gladiator sandals (old, from Bergdorf clearance)
Marc Bernstein triple wrap bracelet (from Young Designers Market, weekends on Mulberry St.)
Elizabeth & James knuckle ring (from Intermix)

Outfit Details

then this afternoon i'm off to a friend's family's beach house, which is in a private community on the opposite end of far rockaway.

Polo Ralph Lauren beach towel (so old, it has stubborn grass stains that refuse to come out in the wash, from picnics in central park), Karoo coverup, Chloe cotton t-shirt dress, red bikini and black eyelet bikini by Shoshanna Swim, Tomas Maier one-piece, leopard bikini by Letarte, Current/Elliot jeans, oversized shirt by SHIRT, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania shorts.

and rain or shine i am determined to debut my new tomas maier one-piece, which was a great find from filene's basement. i don't usually wear one-pieces because i think they make me look even shorter but this one is ultra flattering.

have a great holiday, everyone!


  1. The light and airy outfit must be really comfortable (and looks great). I love the stack of bracelets!

  2. Hope you had fun! I don't know anyone who doesn't find it psychologically slimming to eat a healthy meal. I often found I've lost several pounds after one gym session. It's magic ;) x

  3. PS so i see you moved past anna karenina! x

  4. nice and chill...lovely outfit. Never a big breakfast before a bikini.

  5. go for a last ditch effort to eat healthy just hours before you have to wear a bikini --> I'm guilty. The mind is a weird thing. Hope you had a great weekend. :)

  6. I'm hoping someday you'll pull a Lulu and open your own version of Shop Shoes, because I would buy about half your wardrobe. ;)

    I've been following your style since MyStyleDiary, and I'm so glad to see you're still posting. You and Ashley Olsen are the two most influential people in terms of my personal style.

  7. I love Magda Berliner..but her stuff is so hard to locate..and I don't really feel like driving up to LA! le sigh!

  13. I've been a fan of your outfits since your Stylediary days & am so glad to have stumbled upon your blog! I love the way you put things together in such a (seemingly) effortless way & always look so polished. You also inspire me to weed out a lot of the junk in my own closet! Anyway, I just wanted to say 'hello' and keep up the great work!! xo Erin
