  Becky, the founder and creative spirit behind the BONMOT brand, designs and crafts the seasonal collections of silk tops and dresses in San Francisco (Sally was the sister who first discovered them via Alicia of Cheetah is the New Black!). The line is meant to pair exciting prints with timeless shapes and we are loving the spirit and fun of the brand. The summer collection – Route 1 – is an ode to  California’s historic 1950’s and 60’s surf culture. Each print (Gidget and Larue, Endless Summer, and Shark Week) feature hand-drawn graphics printed on washed silk crepe de…

  Yet another piece of white clothing from Calypso that I recently got loved wearing while at the beach last week. I definitely have a thing for white dresses of all kinds, but I loved this one in particular for a lot of reasons. The tiered skirt of the dress is loose and flowy which is what I am drawn to in a summer-time dress. After a long day in the sun and in the hot, humid weather at the beach, the Tameda’s light weight cotton-silk blend was nice and airy. It was like wearing something that feels like nothing, which…

  I wore the Florence while Sally and I were in Alys last week. Still can’t believe our trip is over…but we are thinking about re-doing our “shop” page here on the blog to feature recommendations from the cities we live in/have lived in and our most visited travel spots (Dallas, San Francisco, Houston, 30A, etc.). Thoughts? We get frequent requests for favorites and figured it would be nice to have it all listed. Let us know if you’d be into it…

Aside from adding concealer on my “spots” and adding a bit of bronzer and blush, the below Laura Mercier products are what I’ve been using and loving. Foundation Primer in Radiance: Laura Mercier is famous for her tinted moisturizer but this foundation primer is meant to go on after regular moisturizer to act as an invisible barrier between skin and makeup. I started using it because the “pearl tint” and hint of color is great for minimizing imperfections and it has a really nice iridescent finish gives a subtle glow. Kind of the perfect thing for my “blah” feeling skin! Caviar Stick…
