The Alexandria Stylebook Six Picks

six picks 08 14 2017

It’s that time…we begin to accept that summer days are winding down and start to get excited about transitioning into fall. This week’s picks each embody this bittersweet seasonal shift, from a candle, cleverly called l’eau tide, and gorgeous glass vases that recall crashing waves, to ways to wear white that work for those sunshine-y autumn days and their cool, crisp evenings.

Gayla: The beautiful, hand-blown glass vases make a beautiful centerpiece or look lovely on a mantel or shelf…and the color will always remind you of the summer ocean. (Available at Coco Blanca, $62.50 each)

Alicia: Feeling like finding a a statement denim to escort out the summer? The Ibiza from McGuire in Pacha has the ribbon detail on the side seams and pairs nicely with a gray or black t-shirt! How simple is that? This particular denim being white, we suggest sizing up at least one size but maybe even two. #ignorenumbers 🙂 (Available at TSALT, $268)

Elizabeth: I have been waiting and waiting for Isabel Marant to arrive at The Hive and it is finally here. This shirt, the Yann, is so Isabel to me — a great feminine white blouse that you can wear all year. (Available at The Hive, $295)

Amy: As summer comes to a close, capture the sea air with our new candle line, Mer Sea.  With 55 hours of burn time, L’eau Tide will bring back summer memories for a long time! (Available at Red Barn Mercantile, $24)

Celeste: Super-soft suede and a sheep skin lining adorn these stylish gray slip-on sneakers from Johnston Murphy.  The snakeskin print is the perfect detail and added pop of sophistication! (Available at Kiskadee, $148)

Elizabeth: I know it’s impossible to imagine at this point, but a blustery fall is just around the corner. Ring in the new season with smooth, hydrated skin! Brown sugar, a natural humectant, is featured prominently in the Fresh Sugar Ultra-Nourishing Body Oil, along with apricot kernel, jojoba, and sweet almond oils. Heaven in a bottle! (Available at Bellacara, $48)
