I am ready to fall into The Gap again. I have been on the hunt for a camo jacket to throw on over everything. I spotted this jacket at The Gap and scooped it up immediately (it’s under $50 with the current promo CHEERS). Others I have considered (like this, this and this) are almost ten times the price. I love the striped details and I lost count of compliments the first time I wore it with a navy t-shirt and sneakers. I also ordered this jacket in dark night from The Gap today (the army green with leopard print was tempting too).
I styled it with a Saint James tee, denim, navy velvet frayed sandals and one of my favorite Parker Thatch clutches. I just ordered this camo clutch from Parker Thatch (it arrives tomorrow and I can hardly wait!)

I love this Marel George painting of an Italian beach scene on this t-shirt. Just like with last week’s Andiamo tee, I am living vicariously through my clothes. While I thoroughly enjoyed a recent getaway to the American Riviera (Santa Barbara), but I still dream about the long days in Europe.
I styled the tee with my go-to seersucker blazer, jeans, sunglasses, Legend of Lido clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels.

Last year I wrote about the The Privilege of Getting Older. I still feel like it is a privilege even as this year flew by (I know that is such a cliche, but seriously, time is moving at warp speed).
This weekend is my birthday which also signals the official start of summer and the longest day of the year a few days later. My son finished First Grade this week and we spent the first day of summer at Legoland followed by swimming. Life is good. I am lucky and I have a lot to be grateful for.
And who doesn’t love great birthday presents like this Cult Gaia Ark Bag (also here) and Samantha Sung dress? I also found the most comfortable Stuart Weitzman sandals in navy with a frayed edge. The dress is versatile, so comfortable, well made with important details like a snap instead of a button in just the right place. I have already worn it with flat sandals for a more causal look.
