Have you guys been watching the new season of Aziz Ansari’s Master of None? I love this quirky little show. Something about the dialogue–or maybe the way the scenes are cut?–is super awkward and jilting, but it’s also delightfully artful and creative and well-styled. The second season is even more playful and “out there” than the first, with scenes and plot lines not directly related to Aziz’s character built in to showcase particular themes and tropes, including a portion of one episode portraying a deaf woman that is entirely without any sound. Interesting and creative stuff.
The first few episodes, though, are set in Italy. Aziz’s character decides to take a few months off of life to learn how to make pasta from a little Italian grandma and just live the good life. Between these scenes and House Hunters: International (the best the best the best), I am experiencing a keen sense of wanderlust. One summer in the future, I would love to pack up mini and Mr. and head abroad for an entire summer. Who knows how feasible this is. (And what would we do with Tilly?) But it’s a dream.
In the meantime, I’m lobbying for a vacation somewhere more attainable with a beach and drinks with umbrellas and no agenda. And, here’s what I’d like to pack:
+Globetrotter suitcase ($1,485). Hella impractical — that color would show so many scratches! — but SO pretty. A girl can dream. More practical and personally highly rated is the Tumi Alpha 2. I love this suitcase. It’s super well-made and well-designed.
+A perfect daytime-to-evening dress ($375).
+A packable sunhat ($60).
+Monogrammed beach bag (Rae Feather, $205).
+A beach blanket ($65). P.S. — also love these monogrammable beach towels from Pottery Barn in this bisque awning stripe ($39).
+Hilarious hat ($88).
+I didn’t include it in the roundup yesterday because of the hefty price tag ($550 for a bathing suit?!), but this polka dot wonder is TO DIE.
+How adorbs is this pair of gingham, bow-topped sandals ($138)?!
Finally, these wear-with-EVERYTHING flower earrings ($140) have my attention. Which color, though?
P.P.S. I love this sun bonnet for a babe — also a great Etsy find!
