When I first saw the cover image of the Wall Street Journal Magazine last week, it looked more appropriate for September not May but the jokes on me. It's currently 45 degrees in New York and this cable knit sweater from The Row would be perfect to wear today. The magazine is inside the Saturday, May 25 edition of the Wall Street Journal newspaper. Make sure you pick it up. It will give you something to read while you're warming your feet in front of the fire in The Hamptons.

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
- Nick Carraway, The Great Gatsby
It's the start of the Memorial Day weekend here in the US and a bank holiday weekend in England, the unofficial start of summer. It doesn't really feel like summer though with all the weird weather. Let's just look at these images and pretend shall we?

It's been exciting to see the progress of Serena & Lily from when I was first introduced to them in 2010. It was even more inspiring to hear founders Lily Kanter and Serena Dugan talk about the really early days when they just made crib bedding while standing in their first retail store in the Hamptons. A group of us were treated to a sneak peek of the space in Wainscott that opens on Saturday,May 25th and it looks amazing! In addition to their fabulous bed linens, pillowsand upholstery, they will offer an array of products including amazing art, limited edition surfboards, beach bags, pareos, bistro chairs, and hostess gifts galore! I used to joke that I could decorate an entire Hamptons house with one trip to Mecox Gardens but I'll amend that to include a trip to Mecox Gardens and Serena & Lily Beach Market.
