Though I’m mainly a black and white kind of gal, every so often I start really feeling a very specific pastel color palette. Some idle Tumblr/Google meandering this week led me to artist Will Cotton, and I dragged Cotton Candy Katy into my "inspiration" folder.

1. These mint, white, and black Kenzo patent-leather loafers are just the right amount of 1950s masculine tailoring, saccharine coloring, and weight (because when you’re getting into flowy, summery things, that’s what you need on your feet).

2. Helmut Newton: Polaroids: Buying coffee-table books for yourself is not always a top priority, but you should consider making an exception for this one. Front-to-back, it’s one of the most consistently relevant, inspiring things I own. The man was a genius. I mean, just look at the cover. And imagine how good it’d look on your coffee/bedside table.

3. Cire Trudon Yaz Bukey Candle: Yaz is a Paris-based Turkish jewelry designer with a wicked sense of color (and humor). Her latest project, this leather-jacket—seriously, the aroma couldn’t be more on-the-nose—scented candle with Cire Trudon looks and smells sexy as hell.

4. RMS Cream Eye Shadow in Solar: My main takeaway from tea with Georgia Jagger yesterday? Gotta get my mitts on that gold eye shadow. It gave just the right amount of sheen to her lids.

5. MAC Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara: Oh Haute & Naughty, how I love thee, even though I never know how to pronounce "haute" when I recommend it to people. (I know, but it’s like saying Ibeetha instead of Ibeeza—awkward.) When you want a light-as-air, barely there swipe of mascara, nothing beats the Haute side of the brush.

    "buying books for yourself is not always a top priority"...WHAT!? this is the first insane things you guys have said. :) buying books for oneself should always be allowed to be a top priority. you're investing in yourself and in your wisdom. sometimes nothing is more fulfilling.

      Oops--meant to say COFFEE TABLE/art books. Totally agree re: books/reading. Lean In and Bossypants = necessary expenses. xE

    You're adorable. I love these features, btw! It's nice to have some style (+ lifestyle) stuff creeping into this blog, which is as much a feel-amazing-about-yourself blog as it is a beauty blog.
