Love, Stripes and Camo

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!)

At the Beach in Italy

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.

Gemini in a Blue Dress

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.
