The News: Ryan Gosling Teams Up With Russell Crowe 

We might still be recovering from the whole baby news in regards to Gosling, but don't worry--he's not disappearing into fatherhood entirely. The actor is reportedly teaming up with Russell Crowe on the new police drama The Nice Guys, which revolves around a pair of detectives in '70s LA.

The Look: Collina Strada

Everyone who knows me knows that I'm all about prints--the wilder, the better--which is why everything from Collina Strada speaks to me on a spiritual level. From the crazy tie-dye bottoms to the spacey motif dresses, I want (need?) it all. Bonus: the brand's Tumblr rules.

The Face: Marc Jacobs Beauty Highlighter Gel Eye Crayon

Intense dark eyeliner in the summertime can feel overly dramatic and heavy, so I'm switching things up with this Marc Jacobs eye pencil. It goes on dense, it stays for hours, and its unexpected lavender hue makes your peepers seriously pop. 

The Inspiration: Fall Ad Campaigns From 3.1 Phillip Lim, Sandro, and More. 

I know, I's summer. We've waited forever for the sun to show its face, and now that it's finally here, I'm already looking forward to fall? But the thing is, the latest batch of fall '14 ad campaigns have landed, and they're actually gorgeous enough for me to get psyched sweater weather all over again. Thanks to 3.1 Phillip Lim's high-flying imagery, Sandro's  goth-glam realness, and McQ's stark simplicity, I'm already daydreaming about road trips and pumpkin-picking and fall in New York. Sorry not sorry?

The Song:  "Tame"- The History of Apple Pie

Our favorite London dream pop crew are back with a brand-new LP coming out this fall! And just like their band name, you'd better bet their sophomore albm Feel Something gonna be sweet. So prepare your palette and listen to their first single "Tame" below.
