A few weeks ago, it was a beautiful night where I actually took the time to sit outside and take in the amazingness that is the Summer starry sky. There are a few breathes left in the warm weather of summer. So, if you can, take the time to enjoy something so beautiful that often times is taken for granted…

High Flying Flags

I don’t know what the deal is but I have been on an intense flag kick lately, and it just so happens that everywhere I look, I find some more. It started with the IKEA flag bedding set, which I immediately had my sister go purchase for me, (because the Brooklyn outpost was sold out- no surprise there given how cheery and afforndable it is) and now the flag admiration just keeps going. Here are a few great flag finds…

Aren’t these colorful mini suitcases, $35 (a set) from Feather Your Nest the best??

Ice Cream Truck

I have been on a food truck mission this summer. I trek all over the city tracking down various yummy delights such as the Waffles & Dinges truck, the Rickshaw Dumplings truck, the LCB Burger Truck, and most recently, the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream Truck in Soho(my personal fav). Monday through Friday the pastel yellow truck can be found stationed at the corner of Prince and Greene. They have all sorts of tasty flavors like Peppermint & Chip, Coffee, and Red Currant.

Short Cut

Summer is still looming, and I have a hunch it may be here for a while longer (yay!), so why hestitate on still buying summer clothes- especially when they are as cute as these shorts from Benny and Moon

I refuse to admit that Summer is winding down, even though I am trying to cram as much as possible and check off every last ‘to do’ thing on my summer list. I took a long weekend, and made a stop in Montauk yesterday. The Ditch Witch, some dips in the ocean, browsing at Tauk, and a stop off at Tate’s on the way home… ah, Summer!

Mad for Plaid

Though not everyone is a stripes and plaids kind of person- I most definitely am! I was instantly attracted to this 100% Silk Dupioni dress from Calypso, $69. I love the braided detail of the straps!

I Scream

Nothing gets kids running faster than the jingly tunes echoed by the neighborhood ice cream truck. When the heat reigns supreme, there is no better way to cool down.

There is something really exciting, and adventurous about finding a message in a botttle, don’t you think? The thought of having something so important, and meaningful that it just had to be sent by way of sea is ideally romantic, and also a ton of fun for kids.

Set them up with the message in a bottle kit, $11.50-  available from Whale’s Tale.
