As the holiday weekend has just started, it is time for July inspirations! July is one of my very favorite months of the year, with fresh peaches, promise of a great time, that "something" relaxing in the air, something that gives us hope that this month will energize us and shine through our memories in the grey months of NYC winter. I divided my inspirations into three themes:
Fashion Holiday Weekend Staples
Summer Inspiring Reads
|Just Keep Swimming - I-Phone Case -/- Holly Sunglasses -/-Melissa Cosmic Sandal|
During the weekend, when the temperature is almost reaching 100 ° F, I want to carry around only what it essential. Summer is a bit different from the rest of the year, as far as choice of accessories is concerned. I think we should all give ourselves the permission to discover an inner-child from time to time and there is no time better for that than Summer! Our sunglasses can be in more joyful, beach inspired colors, our phone cases can look like we have stolen them from some teenage friend and we have a permission to wear comfortable shoes from time to time. (Especially, with all the popularity of slides this year.)
|Lace Embroidered Tank -/- Gingham Midi Skirt|
Summer is a season of patriotic holidays, weddings, parties. etc. Therefore, it is time-saving to have something in your closet always ready for all sorts of warm weather events, something that will take you from the morning until the evening. No matter, how fast trends are changing, there is always something refreshing in a blue and white color combination. This year you can choose from pastel blues mixed with grey or go for very light blue reminding us of the sky in the beautiful hot vacation destinations. From lace, gingham to maxi, midi and cropped, you can choose what suits you best.
|Fathers Quarterly -/- Food52 Genius Recipes|
Finally, something which can inspire both your soul and your body. I have been a fan of Food52 for a long time,as their philosophy based on appreciation on healthy meals, support of local food producers and cultivation of the idea of cooking at home (I wish it was easier...) is very close to my heart. Because of all of those reasons, I am super excited for their book Genius Recipes written by Kristen Miglore, a collection of failure-proof recipes from chef celebrities like Nigella Lawson, Julia Child, ranging from familiar dishes that we seem to never get right to many unexpected surprises.
Second item, that I am extremely excited to mention here, is a new concept magazine, available both in Polish and English, Fathers Quaterly. Anytime I see something as beautiful and inspiring coming out from my country of origin, I am very proud. This book-like magazine offers stunning photos and stories and fills out the niche on the market that was very much abandoned. It is a feast for the eyes and definitely I recommend it not only to Fathers but for anyone who is interested in a very unique perspective on nature, travel, life style and modern fatherhood.Thumbs up!!!
Happy 4th of July to all of you and may July be the beginning of a very inspiring Summer!
As always, please share your inspirations with me!
