august edit

This is going to sound crazy, but I hadn't been in my apartment's rooftop pool until last night. I've sunbathed on one of the 7th floor chaises plenty of times, but never had the urge to take a dip. Last night, a little case of the Sunday blues compelled me to head up there with a glass of wine because I just didn't want another weekend to end in front of the TV. So boring (sorry Bachelor in Paradise). Just as I'd hoped, I had the sundeck to myself, and it was so nice to bob in the illuminated water and watch the sky turn from pink to orange to black. Probably going to put that scenario on loop till October.

I have several long weekends planned coming up, and with a handful of work events & parties on the iCal, I know the dog days will disappear as quickly as June and July, but at least I'm set up to enjoy them (away from the office)! My wish list this month is a balanced mix of summer and transitional pieces as I look ahead to fall. Shop my picks below to soak up August in style—and get to that rooftop pool while you still can!

one | Slit-Neck Beach Sweater—a lightweight layer that's much cuter to throw on for an evening pontoon cruise than your old college crewneck (on sale!)
two | Modern Friction™ Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion—my skin needs a good sloughing after all the sunscreen and sweat build-up of the last few months (also love this drugstore toner)
three | Victoria Eyelet Top—a sweet summer look that isn't too kiddie-looking, with just a subtle crop that's perfect for al fresco happy hours or brunch
four | Jeffrey Campbell Booties—the perfect pointed profile for every day and only $160!
five | Large Moto Satchel—I love the signature zippers on Rebecca Minkoff bags, and have a thing for jungle-green leather: more interesting than black or brown, but just as versatile
six | Essie polish in Blanc—picked this up at Target last week and it's all I want to wear before I turn to my darker fall favorites
seven | French Terry Joggers—when I moved in the spring, I tossed a ton of ratty sweats and have been relying on leggings for lounging since. But as cooler nights creep up on us, it's time for some real joggers and these are polished enough to wear in public.
