Hi. Welcome to my world! 

Books, art, food, our crazy world events, my busy life... just a few things I like to write about. 

This Week's Obsession: Tomato Red

This Week's Obsession: Tomato Red


My veggies have come a long way since spring. However, staring at them isn't going to help them ripen, so while I wait I will preoccupy myself with these summery, tomato-red substitutes.  Stay cool! 

Shopping Guide: 

1) Recipes from an Italian Summer (Phaidon): I discovered this book during a recent stop  at one of my favorite neighborhood shops, The Drawing Room. They have the most impeccably curated inventory of books (among other things).  The Drawing Room: 5 Suburban Road, Cos Cob, CT

2) L.L. Bean Boat & Tote bag: It just doesn't get more classic (or durable).  L.L. Bean ($24.95 and up).  

3) The Leah Durner Tray, West Elm. Serve up some art while you're at it! West Elm ( $39)

4) Tank Dress. Nothing says summer style like nautical and easy. Chance ($105)

5) Patent leather Miller sandal in Flame Red. The perfect shade of summer red. Tory Burch ($195)

6) Classic red tootsies! My go to summer color. 5th Avenue Red. Essie ($8)
