Summer is still on

How to wear your summer clothes and at the same time create a fall look

  1. You know that your favorite pair of jean shorts or jean skirt, can be a piece that is all year around and you can combine it with boots, or sneakers and with bompers/ leather jacket or our lovable blazers.
  2. Suede is still on and we love it. It reminds us the hippie season.
  3. The linzerie dress can be worn with a white t-shirt or a jean shirt.
  4. White jeans still have their way to to conquer our fall looks.
  5. Cropped pants or jeans, are both stylish and elegant and can be matched with a blazer or our military trench coat.



Summer recipe

Grilled Watermelon & Feta Salad with Mint, Arugula & Balsamic Glaze

grilled watermellon with feta



Feta cheese (or other salty cheese like Cotija)

Mint – chopped

Arugula (optional)

Balsamic glaze (which is just reduced balsamic vinegar)


Olive oil (if grilling the watermelon)



Bring some balsamic vinegar to a boil & then reduce to a simmer.  In 20 minutes – my 1/4 cup of balsamic reduced to only one or two teaspoons of glaze – so boil down an appropriate quantity.  My quantity of glaze was sufficient for three little watermelon & feta towers.

grill them


If grilling the watermelon – cut it into large chunks.  You can cut them the size of a deck of cards or, as I did, use a large cookie cutter & create deep disks.  If you are not grilling – you can cut any way you like – including bite-sized cubes.

Heat your grill very hot.  Place the watermelon on a little olive oil & grill on that side – the oil side – for no longer than 2 minutes.  Do not overcook the watermelon or it will get mushy.


Place some arugula on each plate (optional) & top with the grilled watermelon, crumbled cheese, chopped mint, a drizzle of the glaze & some S&P.  Serve those bad boys up!

If not grilling the watermelon – you can just leave that step out or you can toss all the ingredients in a bowl – rather than creating individual servings.
