1) Looking to change your behavior/habits?  After the age of 25, it becomes much more difficult.  Fast Company has some tips for bringing about lasting change.

2) This sheer tunic from Merona is a great, affordable piece for summer.  You can pair it with coral shorts, or wear it over a lacy black bra for something different.

3) American Pharaoh is one step away from winning horse racing’s Triple Crown, but fivethirtyeight says that racing fans should be skeptical.

4) Looking for a fun beach bag?  Cathy’s Concepts makes this striped bag for $39.  You can monogram any of their bags, so they’d make a great bridesmaids gift or birthday present.

5) Conde Nast Traveler offers suggestions on where to travel when.  Here are there suggestions for May.

6) Allure explains what SPF really means just in time for summer.  As for favorite sunscreens, I love Supergoop’s Sun Defying Oil.  They also make a spray-on sunscreen if you like something lighter.

7) Vanity Fair has a slideshow of looks from the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.  I love the sculptural strapless dresses on Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron.

8) I’m not usually such a fan of bows, but this white coat from Kate Spade is adorable.

9) Kottke.org asks: What’s the most beautiful paragraph/sentence you’ve ever read?

“Love is so short, forgetting is so long.” — Pablo Neruda

    I read this in high school, and I’ve been haunted by its loveliness ever since:
    We look before and after,
    And pine for what is not;
    Our sincerest laughter
    With some pain is fraught;
    Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.
    –From “To a Skylark,” by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
