At A Glance, August

What I find notable for the month.

Tory Burch. The color of these is what really grabs me. Red shoes are impactful but I find also find them neutral.
Ooni Koda, Why I think I want this home pizza oven is a little puzzling. I can just go out and get good pizza any time I want with so much less effort. It’s just so cool. This would be fun for a party. Who’s in?
Officine Générale. I discovered this brand by stumbling in to their NYC store. I think it was predominantly menswear so their womenswear has a bit of a masculine vibe. I love this outfit because I love the vest over the collarless button up and the tailored trousers with white deck shoes.
Black Silk Scarf/photo:Officine Générale. I love this chic black scarf-so dramatic and grounding.
Veronica Beard. I am a big fan of houndstooth.This vest is a fast way to add dimension to your outfit. Style it alone in summer and start layering things under and over as the weather cools.
Nili Lotan Nili Lotan introduced an accessories line recently. This belt is an example of the her refined elegance.
Coop’s Cones are waffle cone chips–the most delicious ice cream topper or snack straight from the bag. They also come in chocolate dipped with sprinkles. Use my promo code HSTYLE for a 10% discount.

At A Glance, May

What is notable for the month.

Crying In H Mart. I am late to reading this book, as it was published last year. I still want to share that this deeply moving memoir by Michelle Zauner is a worthy read.
This COS outfit is so me. Wide leg, no pleat, high rise trousers with a fitted 3/4 short sleeve sweater. I don’t know why they didn’t list the sweater on the COS site-I’m sorry I don’t have information on it.
Loft riviera shorts. I have a thing for plaids and gingham. If you are are shorts wearer, these are lightweight and can be styled so many ways. First way would be with a black cable mock neck sweater (see below) and some black fisherman sandals.
Joe’s Jeans mock neck sweater that I referenced above. I know some of you will think I am crazy for recommending a sweater for summer. Sometimes, I love the clean line of a sweater instead of a jacket when dealing with a cool evening or an agressive a/c.
Summer Rain Boots. It rains all year so why shouldn’t we have summer specific rain boots?These Asos boots are your lighter looking functional summer footwear. Even if it stops raining while you are out and about, you will still look cute.
Use Miso in your recipes. One of my sons’ girlfriend* made these delicious chocolate chip cookies–made with miso. Another sons’ girlfriend* made a miso pasta dish that was incredible. The umami taste of the miso is a welcome depth in both sweet and savory recipes.
*Grammar nerds come for me. I have 3 sons. Each of whom have a girlfriend (well, one has a fiancé.) So I want to impart that one of the women made cookies and another made pasta- did I punctuate correctly?
I don’t love hearing too much about a book, television show or a movie before I get to it, because if the hype is too much, it may disappoint. This was the case with, The Silent Patient. I had heard such good things about it. I didn’t dislike it-but the build up was too great to reach.
GAP Factory I went into the store to purchase navy pants but really loved these pink pants more. They run a bit large.
