What can I say? I'm a sucker for a mood board. And I don't think all my insomniac hours spent on Pinterest are for naught! They keep my mind inspired and swirling with imagery that makes me want to better myself. While some people are moved to knit sweaters for their hedgehog or build a chair out of discarded spice racks, I peruse Pinterest and find myself wanting to dress better and live brighter. Here are some special summery images putting me in gear, on this day of the official start of summer!
A shot from L'Officiel c. 1974, Dolce & Gabbana pants in the print that won't die (and yet, I still love it), a summer snooze by Helmut Newton.
Two orange-y, unsourced images flank a pair of Cutler & Gross glasses with the coolest sunset-mimicking lenses.
A pensive Jane B., a cheerful Anya Hindmarch tote and Anjelica Huston wearing Valentino c. 1972 all have me in a sunny mood.
In addition to these groovy photos, I wanted to share about a recent discovery via my friend Amanda Lee: Radiooooo, the time-traveling radio website and app. Not only does Radiooooo (that's a mouthful) allow you to travel through time via music, it also allows you to travel, period. Pick a decade, pick a country, pick a tempo and Radiooooo's taxi will take you there. I'm currently in 1970's France. Now that's fun. Hop to it!
I hope you spend the rest of this solstice evening taking it easy, whether it's finding fun tunes and pinning summery images, but try to throw in a summer cocktail too! I'm open to hearing your favourite recipes, by the way. I've got a bottle of spiced rum that could use some ingenuity.
