JanieBryantBlackHaloS4S

Janie Bryant’s mad genius work on Mad Men is finally available to stylish gals of the 21st century through her collaboration with Black Halo. The collection features eight amazing pieces and I’m desperately sighing for one of her elegantly edgy designs. Modest skirt lengths are paired with sexy slits and bold prints are balanced with soft silhouettes — it’s everything you could hope for and more from the Emmy-nominated costume designer. Check out the collection for your own Mad Men moment.

ChrissyTeigenBeachHair

Summer’s not over yet, meaning there are plenty of beach days still ahead. With that in mind, this Sunday I’m sighing for a beach babe hair moment. Beach hair gets big, and wavy, and salty, and there’s nothing you can do about it– but that’s the most beautiful thing. Embracing the natural rebel in your hair is the most liberating feeling, making for some seriously stylish confidence. Forget the big hat and unleash the beast– these waves are your best beach accessory.

AlexaChungAGJeans

With the second installment of her collaboration with AG jeans hitting stores last week, I’m already sighing for the fabulous Fall collection. True to her seventies aesthetic, the designs feature high-waists, flares, lots of denim, and a personal fave of mine, corduroy– not to mention overalls and rompers. This chick makes anything look cool; it’s even almost affordable to dress like the It girl herself…head to AG Jeans for a blast from the past and, let’s face it, your fashion future.

AlexanderMcQueenArmadilloBootsIn a perfect world Alexander McQueen would still be with us and we’d all be wearing his armadillo boots. Alas, that was years ago, so this week I’m sighing for a resurrected pair of his iconic boots, which will be auctioned off this week at Christie’s to benefit Unicef. Sadly the boots aren’t in my budget, but one lucky fashionista will be reliving a piece of fashion history in this piece of art.

CastanerJeanEspadrilles
There are really only two kinds of footwear for summer: espadrilles or bare feet. This week I’m sighing for the sandal epitome of summer in bright colors like this eye-catching pair by Castañer. With a tradition in the Mediterranean, putting on a pair of these babies makes you feel that much closer to nude beaches and turquoise waters. The best part is they’re such a staple that you don’t have to spend a fortune to look like you bought them on the Côte d’Azur, brands like Soludos offer equally adorable espadrilles for a plebeian penny.

My July calendar says “Take me to the sea” in swirly blue letters, and that’s exactly what I intend to do this week. To spend my day at the beach in style, I’m sighing for a chic towel vest. If you’re not much of a swimmer, you can throw on some boyfriend jeans with your vest and bikini for a stylish stroll in the sand, but the brilliant concept is the perfect way to bundle up in cozy terrycloth without looking like a frozen burrito after a refreshing dip in the sea–that’s my kinda beach day!
