Get the Look: 24 Floral Fashions For Summer

Did Thursday’s 26 Floral Street Style Looks inspire you to mix in a bit of floral lovin’? Even if you’re not ready for a full-on floral dress (and really, who am I to talk), you could try it out with a tank or hey, a thong. I’m thinking a floral iPhone case would work for me. I do love looking at these though, even if I’m not wearing them. So fun. If you love the floral-print shoes (I’m slightly obsessed with the Loeffler Randall pair here, and the Jimmy Choo floral-printed python platform), you can also check out my floral shoe roundup, “Petal Power” in Sunday’s Boston Globe.

Just In: Jessica Biales Signet Rings

I’ve long considered my friend Jessica Biales to have impeccable taste. I learned to cultivate the art of minimalism from her, back in college. She had almost nothing in her closet, yet she always had everything she needed. On the walls hung posters of architectural renderings by Frank Gehry and Phillip Johnson, mounted on foam core rather than taped to the walls. And her duvet was plain black.

Hardly the stuff of college dreams. When I need to cull, I channel that dorm room, which only one year before was laden with images of Monet’s Giverny, an inspiration board laden with Calvin Klein’s ponytailed models and Christy and Linda in Chanel, and a double mattress topped with a floral comforter; home to moi. Jessica was the New York City sophisticate incarnate. And now, reigning queen bee of the style world, Jenna Lyons, has confirmed what I always knew—Jessica Biales has style. 

J.Crew, which has been experimenting with collaborations with all sorts of cool kids—including CFDA winners and other under-the-radar labels—has picked up two rings by Jessica Biales. It’s the company’s first offerings in fine jewelry. They are carrying a limited run of two solid 18-carat gold signet styles—one yellow gold, and the other rose gold bedecked with pavé emeralds.

I gave the collab a shout-out in Sunday’s Boston Globe, as “The One Thing” in the  paper’s new “Enthusiast” section. Jessica’s work has gotten a ton of press over the past six months. Let’s have a look.

Summer Style: Shopping the Memorial Day Sales

It’s supposed to rain all weekend in Boston and on the Cape. Bummer. We had planned to head to Truro for the first time since last fall. We still may go; there’s dead bug vacuuming to be done. However, like on all holiday weekends, there are sales galore. I may just be able to get some summer shopping accomplished online. I pulled together four sets of clothing and accessories I found. Everything shown is on sale. Not sure what to buy first. Oh, well actually I already picked up the stripey tote from Gap this week. What have you guys been buying for summer?

Covet: Lulu Frost x J.Crew Bangles

Lulu Frost for J.Crew bangles

I spotted this stack of art deco-inspired resin Lulu Frost for J.Crew bangles ($45 – $118) on 770 Behind the Line, the “(un)official” J.Crew blog. I think I prefer the stacked “sculpture” over having them clang around on my wrist. Or maybe just as this photograph, framed on the wall.
