HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

Finding the perfect, go-to shade of lipstick can take years – but once you’ve found it, you hardly ever stray. (I alternate between this one and this one. Both Tom Ford. No surprise.) Why not let the editors of Vogue help you on your quest? Here, 10 editors of the magazine reveal their favorite shade. Don’t you want to know what Lauren Santo Domingo puckers up for?

Got a case of wanderlust? This will probably only make it worse. Violet Gray uncovers the top five beaches – including the one frequented by F. Scott Fitzgerald back in the day – in the South of France.  A girl can dream.

Calling all of my fellow blue-and-white lovers: Tory Burch debuted her tabletop collection this week. With the prettiest patterns, all of the pieces can be mixed-and-matched. (The salad plates are by far my favorite.) It’s a blue-and-white paradise.

Summer’s recipes usually revolve around lighter fare. It’s simply too hot to eat anything heavy. But sometimes you get a craving for pasta. This avocado and basil pasta dish should do the trick.

Don’t you love it when your clothes pull off double duties? That’s what’s happening in this J Brand coat. With its functional zippers, this coat can be made long for cooler nights or short for an edgier look. Genius.

There’s nothing I like more than perusing a good beach house – especially if there’s some color love. This Hamptons home is punched up with splashes of color and a mix of to-die-for prints.
