This summer I am on the hunt for wardrobe, home and entertaining essentials that will help me beat the heat in style. This summer that holds especially true, since I am counting down the weeks until our new bundle of joy arrives. From a luxe “baby-moon” vacation to bump-friendly caftans, I’m forecasting an extremely haute season. By our Austin-based stylesetter Camille Styles
TOP PHOTO: The Biltmore Santa Barbara Resort. Can’t wait for my next weekend getaway to this haven tucked between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific coast. My husband and I will indulge in gorgeous scenery, California cuisine and seaside relaxation one last time before baby arrives.
Dipytque Eau Rose. This fresh fragrance pays homage to the leading lady of flowers, the rose. Combined with bergamot, black currant, white musk and cedar, this delicate floral scent wakes me up each morning (and looks so chic perched on my desk).
Esque Off Pitcher + Cup. How gorgeous are these one-of-a-kind handmade carafes by Portland studio Esque? Paired with a custom cup, these pitchers will look equally luxe on my bedside table as they will at your outdoor soirées this summer.
Missoni Carnac Crochet- Knit Caftan. This Missoni caftan in sweet sorbet shades will be perfect for my growing baby bump this summer. Paired with a floppy hat and glam metallic sandals, I’ll be the picture of bohemian mama-to-be as I entertain friends poolside.
Rondo Gold Cutlery. I can never resist a set of glamorous gold flatware, and these by Rondo are made with impeccable craftsmanship. Despite their undeniable beauty, they meet my summer entertaining requirement of being dishwasher safe, too!
Sgakerak Akiko Croquet Set. I’ve never met a party guest who doesn’t love a round of croquet, and this set takes the summertime classic to new levels of style. I love that it comes packed in a sleek wood box, so the set looks as good when it’s stored away as it does when the mallets are in action.
