There and Back Again

I'm currently sitting in the corner of one of those corporate fat-cat's establishments aka Starbucks near Miramar Beach, waiting for the rest of the family to return from a 4-hour fishing trip in the bay (wasn't really buying into the whole 'experience' the trip entailed myself), and realizing the last 2 weeks flew by. I'm shocked I made a few posts on here during this vacation as it is. Jet skiing early this week, returning to our favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant 'Another Broken Egg Café', and soaking up limitless sun has come to a close all too soon. Walton County is an area everyone needs to visit at least once in their lifetime.

I just found these shoes from designer Nicholas Kirkwood on a website I discovered this morning and I am lusting like no other right now. Kirkwood has designed for the likes of Rodarte, Ghost, John Rocca and Erdem. This lace wedge is crafted with blue suede and a layer of gold fabric. There's no way I'd be able to add these babies to my shopping cart but I guess I can live vicariously for now and bookmark the page?

Last week in Santa Rosa and I think it's safe to say I've done a pretty decent job with the tan. Between kayaking everyday to the sandbar near the coast and reading the second book in George R.R. Martin's amazing series, "A Clash of Kings", I have no desire for this week to end. I was perusing some designer's collections for Fall/Winter 2011 this morning and I thought I'd post some of Gareth Pugh's designs. His line is just incredible. The electric blue is gorgeous and the construction of some of these pieces gives a true glimpse of Pugh's talent and ingenuity. Some of these look so Matrix-esque.

The construction of this badass!

I absolutely love this outfit.

Ladytron released a new single for their upcoming album Gravity the Seducer. "White Elephant" is definitely the newest addition to my summer playlist for the beach. The infectious melody is just something else. The album will be available September 13th in the U.S. Courtesy of YouTube.

Beachside T-minus 9 days

Our annual family vacation to Santa Rosa Beach in Florida is one of the highlights of the year for me. Ocean water, family, a good book, and the welcoming sun are all anyone needs to genuinely enjoy time away from home. I was on Net-A-Porter's site today and found some pieces I would pack in my suitcase. Had I an extra $1,000 laying around, of course.

This beautiful denim-print silk caftan from EMAMĂ“ is perfect for a cover-up on the beach during the day or an evening stroll along the coastline.

I have been scouting all summer for the perfect espadrille and this Missoni crochet-knit version is exquisite. I love the contrast of the strap's colors and the material of the wedge.

An American Hangover

For those of you still celebrating 'Merrica's independence, I've found this lovely piece on Topshop's website that I should have donned at the Ranger's Ballpark in Arlington yesterday. Definitely would have turned heads.
