Finds + All Things Fabulous Rio Printed Cotton-Blend Terry Shorts $105
Summer is for cute, short things. So slip a pair of these on and be festive… perhaps as a coverup after a dip in the pool or as a fun bottom with a light white tee. We love the kooky meets sporty look! It reminds us of our tiny Bebe terry shorts ten years ago (remember those?) except CHIC-ified and made utterly adorable. There really are endless opportunities in which to wear these and with them, endless compliments we’d imagine!

Summer beauty to me is all about more natural makeup and a big focus on skincare. I’m not really into my makeup dripping down my face while I’m waiting for the subway or walking down the street in 90 degree weather, so I switch to tinted moisturizer when the temps go up. I’m obsessed with Lancome’s beauty balm—it gives you the perfect amount of color and coverage and already has SPF 30. I mix it with Armani’s Fluid Sheer highlighter, which Rebecca introduced me to. It’s a miracle worker and gives you an amazing, natural looking glow!
When it comes to skincare, I’ve been using Lancome’s Genifique serum for years. It gives my skin a great texture, cuts down on redness and just makes my skin visibly healthier. I recently starting using SK-II eye serum as well after hearing rave reviews about their active ingredient, Pitera. I’m naturally inclined to trust any beauty products coming out of Japan, so fingers crossed this helps with my dark under eye circles! This Boscia mask is a lifesaver, especially after a little too much time in the sun—it cuts all the redness out of your skin! Finally, I’ve essentially been going back and forth between these two nail colors all summer—Essie’s Sand Tropez and Jin Soon’s Kookie White. They’re both really fresh colors for warmer weather!
Renee is wearing a Theory Button Down, Sea Shorts, Miu Miu Sunglasses, Givenchy Sandals, Proenza Schouler Bag, Jewelry by Jennifer Fisher, Catbird, Phillips House, and Giles & Brother.
I’ve been to Central Park a million times, but somehow I never made my way up to the Resevoir. Rebecca finally introduced me to it a few weeks ago, and it’s now one of my favorite places in the city. It’s instantly refreshing to be near water, and when you make your way about halfway around the jogging track, you find yourself on this adorable little bridge. It’s the perfect place to admire the gorgeous views and just take a break from the city’s fast pace. Doesn’t it almost look like I’m in Disneyland? I’ll definitely be back here again soon!
Clockwise from left: Gap 1969 Bleached Boyfriend Denim Shorts $25.99 (Orig. $49.95), Kate Spade Saturday Roundabout Sunnies $50, TOMS Black Burlap Classic $54, Annelise Michelson Double Gunmetal Carnivore Ring $395, Alexis Bittar Gunmetal Pyramid Post Earring $95, Loeffler Randall Mini Agenda Bag $325, Sunday Somewhere Spot On Cap $59, H&M Jersey Top $12.95.
My favorite weekend look is an easy tee with some slouchy denim shorts, preferably bleached denim. I practically live in this outfit every weekend of summer, with an added hat and sunnies when the need arises! TOMS are pretty much the best shoe to match—you can easily take a detour into Central Park while doing your Sunday errands and not worry about the dirt paths ruining your Givenchy sandals. They’re $54 and charitable too as you’ve probably heard… when you purchase one shoe, TOMS gives a shoe to a child in need. ONE FOR ONE! When it comes to weekend jewelry, I always make sure that I have earrings and a fun ring no matter how lazy I’m feeling. That way I’m “covered” if I run into anyone in the industry (if you don’t have a full arm party, at least a finger or two adorned!). Worst-case scenario, I’ll hide under a fun hat—enter this adorable spotted Sunday Somewhere cap!
