and what will you serve at this fabulously stylish bbq, you wonder?
this grilled tuna is really really delicious and super easy (make sure to marinate for at least an hour). this corn and tomato salad is perfect for the summertime — fresh and crisp and ideal for outdoor eating on a hot day. if grilling isn’t yo thang, this heirloom tomato pasta is one of the yummiest things ever (hopefully your farmer’s market is open for the summer and you can get some very very fresh tomatoes and basil). and also veggie kabobs (zucchini, onions, mushrooms, campari tomatoes, etc) and corn (shuck it, slather with butter, sprinkle on some cajun seasoning, put the leaves back up, wrap in aluminum foil, and grill baby grill) and applie pie of course and homemade popsicles and memorial day wouldn’t be memorial day without some delicious summery beers (we like anchor steam, harpoon ipa, and brooklyn summer ale) and maybe if you are lucky some delicious mojitos.
remember your sunscreen.

i would buy these shoes from swedish hasbeens:

 

you’ll remember that, some time ago, i declared ugly wooden soled shoes to be a priority for this summer (you do remember, don’t you?) under the assumption that i shop seasonally, of course, and have limitless swedish krona to throw about (233.349 dollars’ worth of krona, to be exact), these are the shoes whose ugly wooden soles i want to run around on.

hey diane remember that time we each spent like a million dollars in stockholm in three days?

anyhoo, swedish hasbeens introduces their company by way of this charming anecdote,

Her name was Anita and she was the hottest mum in all of southern Sweden in the 1970’s. While smoking Camel she screamed at her kids until her curlers fell out and just looked fabulous in her white high-heeled clogs.

and, monetary restrictions notwithstanding, we encourage you to think of anita, sweden’s hottest mum, and the 1970s in general (just not the disco parts), as you shop or don’t shop for this summer and next fall. think wide-legged pants, earth tones, and a very young anjelica huston.

oh anjelica, we ooze for you.

while watching endless summer, i came up with a brief sartorial summer to-buy list. this is it:

 

1. baggy cuffed denim shorts

 

2. super ugly pair of wooden-soled shoes

 

 

3. straw boater hat

 

4. a “boyfriend” blazer (i hate that phrase, it’s almost as bad as a “wifebeater” tank top)

 

 

5. cut-out dress

 

 

am also very into all the beige/off-white/white so-called minimalism going on. it’s trendy, but also elegant and pretty and super for the summertime, as long as your popsicle doesn’t drip on your shorts and ruin everything.
