“I fell in love with this billowy Lee Mathews maxi dress at first sight. With its breezy cotton-seersucker fabric and dreamy pastel colors, I know it’ll be a summertime staple in my wardrobe. PS—it’s on sale for 30% off right now!”


Gretchen Dorosz, Senior Photo Editor

“This month I’m in full summer mode and all about fun, beachy items. First, I’m planning on snagging these trendy Oliver Peoples sunglasses as soon as they go on sale. Against my better judgment, I’m continuing to feed my gingham obsession with this cute scoopback one-piece from J.Crew, which I’ve been eyeing for weeks. I’m also going to pick up the Charlotte Tilbury beach lip and cheek stick that I’ve been wanting to try for ages—it has great reviews and seems like the perfect addition to a summer look for a wedding or special night out.”

“I pretty much live in these Everlane pocket tees, so I’m definitely grabbing some of the newly-released colors this month. That light pink just screams summer! Now that it’s finally beach season, I could use a new swimsuit, too. I love this one from Bonobos that comes in 28 different patterns and three lengths. The 5″ retro-striped one is calling my name. It’s also time to switch from my spring fragrance to something more summery. I’m picking up Kierin NYC’s Sunday Brunch, which has notes of bergamot, lemon, earl grey tea, and jasmine and celebrates my favorite summer activity in New York: brunch.”


Lindsey Olander, Senior Editor

“I just got back from sunny Sardinia and my sunglasses just didn’t cut it, so I’m finally throwing a straw hat into my cart—my eyes and forehead are going to thank me! While on my trip, I fell hard for the effortless glamour of all those stylish Italian women, and bought a Prada bag. It’s definitely a once-in-a-lifetime purchase, but I know I’m going to love it for years to come. I’ve also been very into the breezy shorts trend happening this summer. I’m digging the pinstripes on these ones from Vince.”


Jackie Homan, Editorial Assistant

“During the stickiest of summer days in NYC, I strive to be as comfy as possible, while still looking put together. That’s where Outdoor Voice’s biker shorts come in—they’re trendy and bendy with four-way stretch and sweat-wicking FreeForm fabric. I’ll be pairing them with simple tanks and tees, like this boxy cropped one from basics brand Richer Poorer, which has the perfect relaxed fit. Clothing aside, there’s one more purchase on my mind this month: matcha! I’m learning to prepare my own with the help of Jade Leaf Matcha’s starter set.”


Saman Westberg, Style Correspondent

“White tanks tops are my summer staple, and I’m throwing this one from Re/Done into my rotation. It’s on the pricier side, but I love the slimmer straps and know I’ll get a lot of use out of it. I’m restocking on men’s Hanes tanks, too—they’re classic and the price is pretty unbeatable. Also in my shopping cart: Smith’s Rosebud Salve. I’ve tried my fair share of lip balms, but this is the only one I keep coming back to.”


Tyler Schoeber, Production Specialist 

“After stealing my colleague’s headphones for an entire workday, I couldn’t help but wonder why I have always owned earbuds instead. They’re great, don’t get me wrong, but throwing on a pair of bulky headphones really put me in a work mode in a way I wasn’t expecting. I’ve been eyeing these vintage-looking wireless headphones from Master & Dynamic ever since—not only because of their solid reviews, but because of their cool style, too. I’m also all about these drawcord jean shorts from Topman—they’re unique, casual, and suitable for any summer activity. Lastly, canvas totes are easily the best multi-use summer bags on the market. This honey bee bag from Amazon caught my eye the second I saw it.”


Elizabeth Mullen, Marketing Specialist

“I broke my favorite sunnies a few months ago after years of haphazardly throwing them in my bag, so I’m snagging these as a replacement. They’re super lightweight for sweaty summer days and I love the mirrored look. I also just impulse-purchased this Free People tote after seeing it in the store’s display window—the red color is so fun and stands out in a sea of neutral straw bags. Finally, I’m giving this Supergoop! Sunscreen a go for summertime—it was highly recommended to me by a similarly pale friend, so I’m hoping for the best.”
