TGIT (but technically F) because it’s a long weekend! I hope everyone has great Fourth of July plans this weekend! I’m off to Sag Harbor for a few days so I’m not complaining at all to be spending this holiday at the beach. You might want to follow this one on Insta or Snapchat (@SavvyHome). Just sayin’.

If you ask me, there’s no better way to celebrate 4th of July (or any summer holiday for that matter) than with a few close friends on the beach with some seafood, endless supplies of rosé and a bond fire. So if those are your plans this 4th of July, grab a blanket, a bikini and an extra bottle of rosé—and hit the beach for some good old fun in the sun. Let’s hope it’s a sunny one this year!
“I like to hang out at the house at the weekend and read by the pool. It’s such a peaceful escape away from the city.”
Technically I’m a day late for #ManCrushMonday—but I doubt anyone will complain. Who couldn’t use a little eye-candy on a Tuesday?
I spotted this portrait of fashion photographer Bjorn Iooss at home in Montauk on Mr.Porter and I just had to share. I love reading about the real Montauk. The one that existed before the crowds, the status and before it became known as a party destination in the Hamptons. The way I remember it, there was no Surf Lodge or Ruschmeyer’s; no boozy afternoons at Sloppy Tuna or late nights at Memory Motel… Gurney’s was certainly not a hot spot.
His family house in Montauk seems to accommodate just the right type of laid-back comfort and low-key attitude that Montauk once was; sandy feet, lazy mornings and all. Bjorn shares the house with his parents; famous Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss; his wife, painter Eva Iooss; and his brother Christopher, director of photography at Golf Digest. His neighbors: Julian Schnabel and celebrated photographer Bruce Weber. He spends his weekends surfing Ditch Plains, hitting local haunts like The Dock and Montauket, or reading poolside. I wouldn’t say no to those weekend plans.
Boho chic is having a moment. This summer’s “it” look is a polished effortless elegance. It’s a passe-partout look that fits equally well at the farmer’s market, at a formal luncheon, at a music festival or for an evening at the Surf Lodge. Gladiator sandals are essential, as are flowy skirts and crisp white tops paired with this summer’s “it” bag.
The boho chic look translates into the home with vintage rugs, leather trimmed furniture, mid-century brutalist lighting and pops of color. Above are a few of my favorite boho chic picks.
