The French Riviera as a travel destination; SPQR for brunch with the girls; freshly baked croissants from Douce France Bakery (they are so fluffy and yummy); Cappuccinos from Mayfield Bakery & Cafe (served with a dish of madeleines); Barr-Co. Candles (this clean scent is a lovely departure from heady florals); Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment (an absolute must-have); Speaking of lips, Yves Saint Laurent Golden Gloss 30: Golden Satin (a shimmery, light coral shade perfect for summer); Le Metier de Beaute’s Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Noir (this pen is so precise that it can also be used to tightline in between lashes!); Dolce Vita Valentina Lace Dress (love the buttons up the back); Anthropologie’s Corsetta Belt (give your blouses and dresses a waist with this perforated piece); Eugenia Kim’s Catherine Toyo Sunhat (sweet and chic sun protection); J.Crew’s Camp Popover in Stripe Navy (a classic from the east coast brand); Jimmy Choo Aviator (these are simple and seasonless); Irene Neuwirth Gold Open Teardrop Earrings (these are an investment, but they will go with just about anything).
