SHADES OF SUMMER

There is something about ombre that exudes class.

We are not talking about the turquoise tie-dye beach bags from Target that resurface every year, but instead, the Prada-esque palete of neutrals that seems to cycle back every few years.

We found this Banana Republic tote on SALE  just in time for summer. Crafted exclusively of hand-woven linen that has been individually dip-dyed, this bag will look fabulous with a pair of leather thongs and a light weight cashmere scarf.

Wondering what to wear under all of these accessories? A neutral but well-made, architecturally interesting dress. The BB Dakota Flora Dress is only $85- we have no CLUE how it is so cheap, but it resembles a hot pink Hanii Y dress that Lily wore a few weeks ago on Gossip Girl- all that to say, it is celeb approved.

Now go look Hamptons chic.
