Nope these aren't for me. They're for the little man. I bought Gap toddler girl overalls a few sizes up, the legs are slimmer. For a similar look (for you)... Madewell, Gap, H and M, Selected Femme, looove this below at Reformation, Anthropologie.

I am always being quizzed about summer jackets. Slim pickings this year but I saw this one above by Masscob at KJ's Laundry in The Times, a Madewell kimono style, sort of light denim relaxed number (amazing description) at Reformation, smarter linen blazer option by Club Monaco, cropped knit at Hush and another blue print at Mango. Lulu Kennedy just launched a collection with M&S and I love this one, if you need something a bit more structured this linen blazer at J Crew is a good bet. Cos has a cropped pink/red print option here and this mesh one caught my eye...

My ongoing obsession with cushion (pillows) collecting (yep, true) led to the discovery of Luru Home. The founders Claire and Lisa met in Shanghai, spied the beautiful indigo textiles and Luru Home was born. Claire is now back in Brooklyn and they've kindly shared their secret cities below...pass it on...
Boutique Pilang Palang - bold yet classic Chinese design for the home
Bar Mokkos - shochu cocktails too easy to toss back
Restaurant Xibo - scrumptious Xinjiang fare
Coffee Farine - Paris of the East
Beauty Zen Massage the perfect nightcap
Chinatown, New York
Boutique No6 store - vintage and contemporary
Bar Leadbelly - might we suggest the Burma Shave?
Restaurant Nom Wah Tea Parlor - dim sum with a mid-century vibe
Coffee Dimes - quirky Canal Street breaky joint
Beauty Mian Tian Sing - known for its no-frills, no-fuss, fantastic blow-outs
more secret cities here from Poppy Delevingne, Stephanie Phair from The Outnet, Elizabeth Blitzer and Annie Taube...

I spotted these mid-heel beauties on instagram. Zara again, yep I know, but they are storming this season. This blouse/jacket has sold out everywhere after the Man Repeller wore it. This mini bucket bag is on my wish list, love this print, and I really like their kids collections, especially the shirts, leggings and slim trousers for boys.
