“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot an the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”
—Charles Dickens

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

from the last verse of the poem If You Forget Me by Pablo Neruda

At Home With: Julia Amory in the Hamptons, New York

IT WAS ONLY A MATTER of time before we happened upon Julia Amory’s Hamptons home in all its chintz-y splendour. Amory, her husband and their daughter split their time between New York City and the Hamptons, and it is this, their summer home, that we are in love with. Decidedly grandmillennial in style, it’s a little new traditional with a healthy dose of grandma chic thrown in for good measure.

Still in Love with the Sporty Chic Aesthetic

WHEN LOCKDOWN BEGAN five months ago, was already beginning to commit less days to wearing full make-up, especially on days where there were no outside appointments. If I needed to run errands, would simply wear dark oversized sunglasses and call it a day. As the months wore on, I was not only wearing makeup less and less, but had also done away with proper clothes and living in sweatshirts and sweatpants.

Our Paris Editor’s 6 Favourite Summer Hair Masks

Lately I have focused my attention towards my hair because I felt it dryer than normal and more damaged―partly because of the fact that it’s been a hotter summer than normal, and partly because of the chlorine water of the pool and the salty water from the sea.

I must have been about four when we drove to buy a dog. The day is now only a haze of Sunday afternoon impressions of rain and green, of the muddy track somewhere in the Stirlingshire countryside, a room, a log fire, and the two chosen puppies who would be the confidants of my growing up.

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

AWOKE ON SUNDAY morning believing that it was Monday, already in the sleepy morning cobwebs of my mind planning ambitiously, the week ahead before P let me know that it was Sunday. Immediately all thoughts of industry were forgotten and an easy, somnolent mood set back in. It’s all mindset, you see, and for some inexplicable reason, I’d lost an entire day and gained it back again just in time to fully enjoy an “extra” day of the weekend
