The Look: Topshop’s “Too Cool For Pool” Spread
Topshop’s newest online campaign melds retro cuts, statement shades, and duh, lots of swimwear for a look that’s the epitome of summertime. Think of it as a (slightly) more grown-up twist on the cut-offs you’ve been sporting to the beach thus far this summer...so the next time you want to give the jorts a break, here’s all the inspo you need.
The Face: Clinique Airbrush Concealer
On those days where you literally feel like your face is melting, this little pen is all you need to feel (and look!) refreshed. Just twist it, dab a bit of the illuminating cream under your eyes and on any imperfections, then hit the road. Not only will it convince your friends you totally got eight hours of sleep, but it’ll also even out your skintone for an instant pick-me-up.
The Inspiration: Edun Spring 2012 Campaign
Take Edun’s earthy vision, add Ryan McGinley’s eye for the perfect shot, throw models like Charlotte Free front and center, and what to you get? A campaign that’s practically bursting with magic, that’s what. I’ll be channeling this all summertime long, thankyouverymuch.
The Song: Birp FM’s June Playlist
OK, so technically it’s not a single song, but an entire mixtape of free music? Um, yes please. The Texas-based blog Birp compiles almost 100 of the best new tracks--like Austra, JAWS, and The kooks-- then makes them all available to download in one easy zip file. Besides Susan Miller’s horoscopes, it’s easily the thing I look forward to most at the start of each month.
