Elizabeth Suzann silk + Sevilla Smith shoes

Sevilla Smith Sandy D’Orsay Flats: In review I can’t go a few days of wearing these without someone asking who made these beautiful shoes by Sevilla Smith so I’d like to share a little review: Know that each pair is made according to your exact specifications, from leather type to width to the occasional Midas touch. When these flats arrive they should feel very tight for the first couple of wears, but won’t leave a single blister — scout’s honor. Give them two days to loosen up and they’ll melt into the softest, buttery leather socks that have ever adorned your sweet feet.

Stone Cold Fox Size Fit Review

How to wear summer whites: Stone Cold Fox Marrakech Dress + Seth Blouse

This month I’m bring out all of the deliciously delicate silk and linen and cotton that’s been hidden away at the back of my closet since last September. Hallelujah. Come the first of June I always begin to itch for more sunshine (Vitamin D deficiency or no?) and always start to pencil in long summer nights out, wearing the sexier pieces in my closet. Striking a balance between looking good and feeling comfortable is easy enough, so long as I rely on a summer skin secret my mom shared long ago: When you’re getting dressed and it’s dripping-humid-mid-summer-in-Georgia-hot out: Show off one feature, play down the rest.

In review: Cuyana Gathered Silk Shirtdress and Loeffler Randall tassel sandals

When hunting for closet staples I tend to agonize over nice dresses and nice shoes. Both are investment pieces and rightfully so – the best pieces in your closet should especially be meant to last – worn in and worn well, season over season. I’ve landed on two keepers between Cuyana, the San Francisco-based lean closet brand started by two friends, and Loeffler Randall, the shoe company founded by a husband and wife who started designing the elegant, effortless shoes they couldn’t find elsewhere.

Our Wedding: September 19, 2015

September 19, 2015, I got to marry my best friend. As the cool air of fall rushes in all at once we are still basking in that golden light of remarkable love, kindness, and joy felt all around on our wedding day. A thousand different things didn’t go as planned and yet, as always, fate forms reality far better than we could ever dream it. Like that Pynchon quote, every cup of tea was perfect.

Pacific Northwest Is Best: Visit Whidbey Island, Chuckanut Drive, Ruby Beach, Seattle

Ocean Shores, Washington A week and a half in Washington State was one long sweet, surreal day dream. Our first stop at Ocean Shores unexpectedly introduced us to equine friends: Maggie and Milly. After an afternoon on the beach we were off to Olympic National Forest and idyllic Lake Quinalt for the best salmon nachos in the world. What to pack: Ocean Shores Thrifted Patagonia M Stand Up Short (Also here) Thrifted wide-brim hat (similar on sale at Nordstrom and Amazon) Ray-Ban Classic Aviators in grey-green and gold H by Hudson “Horrigan” Booties (Sizing notes) Bandana (Nordstrom) Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park Next up: The Ruby Beach coast along Washington’s Olympic National Park, which is impossibly expansive and remarkably welcoming. At once you feel tiny, humbled, yet also as if you’re coming home, surrounded by a cathedral of ancient trees, rugged bluffs, and icy tidal pools. It’s the sort of place meant for basking in the warm sun, exploring secret caves, and tumbling over driftwood to unearth little sea creatures. Photo by Caroline Walker Evans …
