the end of summer playlist.


things that we’ll hang on tightly to even as the temperature drops – that slight bronze on our skin, the ocean water in our hair, and the music that made us feel alive this summer. here’s a playlist meant to make the transition a little bit easier. complete with more than a peppering of clapping, some shamelessly-smokey harmonies, bold backbeats that hit every fucking time, guitar riffs that were definitely first recorded on a beach, and beck, speaking nonsense, with a reggaeton-esque verse seamlessly mixed in.

you need this in your ears to go with the sun on your skin and the love in your hearts and the sweaty palm connected to your sweaty palm.


brooklyn, i’m trying… to find a romper with an easy escape route.


IMG_9190there’s nothing better for summer than a romper. your one-piece solution to all of summer’s social requirements.

let’s face it- summer means that beer consumption increases, inhibitions decrease, often bathroom accommodations deteriorate if not disappear completely (the alleyway seems much more approachable when not risking frostbite). overall, the desire and speed at which you would like to remove clothing is heightened as the temperature rises. this does not mean that you should shy away from the pure joy of romping the day away. what it does mean is you need to find one with an easy escape route. see below for my helpful search tips for how to select a fashionable- and reliable- pick this season.
