What To Pack For The Weekend
Although summer solstice isn’t quite here yet, we can’t help but allow our minds to drift to carefree weekends, warm days, slightly cooler nights, lazy beach Saturdays and refreshing, frosty treats du jour. With the weekend about to being, kick off the summer travel season with a jaunt in close proximity to the shore line. You know you deserve it!
Not sure what to pack for the weekend? Let us help.
If you like brights… look for accents that shine. A feathered Lola hat (212 872 2601), printed scarf and glittering sunnies mix well with metallic Ancient Greek sandals and fit nicely in your sunshine yellow beach tote (psst – on sale!). For day and night, keep eyes easy with Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Escapade. Go subtle with this sheer, golden shade of sand. The soft glint of shimmer is all you need.
If you’re dreaming of the exotic... look for tribal accents. For day, try an update on the ever-flattering aviators and a global-inspired Isabel Marant bracelet and pack your ultra slick moisturizing lip colors & beauty essentials (boost moisture and improve lip volume with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil, 212 872 8842) in your roomy vacation tote. For night, this Loro Piana fringed suede scarf (212 872 2653) will keep you warm during beach bonfires and dusk dinners.
P.S. – The lovely Edward Bess says, “For your best lip look choose a lipstick shade closest to your natural lip color and let your lips do all the talking.”
If you want to make a statement by the shore… look for classic shapes in punchy colors and fun prints. These neon + neutral sandals will take you from dawn to dusk and Thierry Lasry’s chic ombre sunglasses will keep your eyes safe from pool or party. Toss it all in Marni’s parrot tote and top your look off with a Eugenia Kim or Lola hats (212 872 2601). For face, we suggest a bronzing duo. As after all, the beachy look is all about the well-placed glow. Achieve this summertime perfection with Bobbi Brown’s Face and Body Bronzing Duo…apply a blend of the two shades for a natural, healthy-looking glow.
