For Your Table
Pottery Barn Ceramic Stripe Drink Dispenser
Fiestaware in Scarlet
Fiestaware in Cobalt
Canvas brushed gold cutlery
Artland Midnight Black Stemless Wine Glass
Take a cue from Kate and mix and match dressy wardrobe staples like a black scarf, black ballet flats and lady like jacket with casual navy capri pants and a striped shirt. A chic outfit that will take you through summer’s long days that journey into night. Same principals work on your table. Fancy black glassware and gold cutlery are grounded by mix and match Fiestaware pottery and a stripy ceramic drink dispenser.
For your table:
1. Crate & Barrel Classic Century Dinnerware
2. West Elm Seersucker placemats
3. Design Within Reach Almoco Flatware in black matte
4. Pottery Barn Tolix café chair
5. Jayson Home & Garden Nelson wood servers
Swapping seersucker for heavier stripes takes this modern classic look straight into spring.
How fresh are those placemats?
What are you up to this weekend friends?
It’s the unofficial last weekend of summer so we plan to enjoy it! I’m going to a Malibu beach bbq tonight and can’t decide what to bring as a side dish? Heirloom tomato salad with goat cheese and basil like the picture above? Or maybe a savory watermelon salad with feta and mint?
Fortunately I know what I’m going to wear tonight so that helps clear my mind of what to cook.
My Grandma bought me this AMAZING sparkly silver metallic beach cardigan yesterday at J. Crew! My Gram embodies classic style done with a “tasteful” twist, so I talked her into this fab vintage bateau neck striped shirt to add to her collection.
She said she’s going to wear it with her skinny jeans and pearls this weekend. Sounds like a great outfit. I enjoyed read Garance Dore’s closet staples a few months ago, what are yours?
Los Angeles has a chef who embodies classic style too, Suzanne Goin! Sarah and I adore her restaurants Lucques, Tavern, AOC and her husband’s restaurant The Hungry Cat. Local food bloggers are talking about where they would choose to eat their last meal in LA, mine would for sure be at Lucques.
Her cookbook, Sunday Suppers at Lucques would certainly be in my top 50 fav cookbooks of all time along with some of these new ones. Happy Weekend!
