Samantha French draws inspiration from her childhood memories of floating in the tepid lakes on northern Minnesota on hot summer days. These paintings are so refreshing . . . can’t you just imagine yourself in one of these painting right now?
Australian label Children of The Tribe has me wanting a little person in my life to dress. I mean, stylish clothing for free spirited youngster who loves to run barefoot in the sand and daydream on treetops?! Too cute.
Since 1999, Glasgow-based artist Jim Lambie has used ordinary vinyl tape to transform spaces into visual wonders in his signature floor series Zobop. These labor intensive installations are meant to fill a space while still leaving it empty, creating the most colorful optical illusions. How delightfully psychedelic!
I’m embarrassed to admit that despite growing up just a few minutes from some of the best beaches in Southern California, I never really learned how to surf. And it wasn’t until I moved away from the Pacific Coast that I recognized the missed opportunity to connect with such a beautiful part of my childhood. Today, learning to stand on a surfboard is on my to-do list and J.Crew‘s recent collaboration with chic surf and swim line Pret-à-Surf might just give me that extra push to just do it. I’m loving the polka dot rash guard and butterfly boy shorts – the perfect mix of girly + sporty. Surf’s up!
