Do you have a secret swimming hole (or favorite)? tell us about it.
A creek runs through a valley close to our house in the springtime. It is totally secluded, has the coolest water, and I’m pretty sure Im the only one who knows about it. The best thing about it is that it only exists for about one month.

What is your go-to picnic fare?
Sangria, fancy cheese, fried chicken

Describe your dream summer ootd (outfit of the day).
I am a big fan of jumpsuits lately because they are so effortlessly chic + comfortable. And I like trying to get away with wearing a bathing suit as often as possible, even if only to sunbathe and read on my patio. Or secretly under my daily clothes to feel more summery and free when I am working. So maybe a jumpsuit with a nicely tailored top and culotte bottoms OVER a bathing suit. With killer sunnies, Funkis sandals, and a fresh haircut. Yes.

Desert Island music?
Police – Synchronicity; Wolfmother – self; Rival Sons – Head Down; Gillian Welch – Revival; Howlin Wolf – Anthology; Them Crooked Vultures – self; TVOTR – Seeds; Heartless Bastards – Arrow; Derek Trucks Band – Already Free ; Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon; St Paul & the Broken Bones – Sea of Noise …. I could go on and on … but it is too sad to think about having only a finite amount of music.

What will you be reading this summer vacation? OR What reading material clutters your nightstand?
‘West with the Night’ by Beryl Markham, ‘The Boston Girl’ by Anita Diamant, ‘The Paris Wife’ by Paula McLain; Always in Rotation: past and current issues of National Geographic; any random page for inspiration from ‘Women in Clothes’ by Heidi Julavits, Leanne Shapton, and Sheila Heti.
