Hello, spring Cucinelli.

There isn't much about you that I don't love. In fact, I could lounge in you, work in you, lunch in you, date night in you, lacrosse field and volleyball court in you, and the list goes on.

The SS16 collection is sure to get you revved up for the new season! Now, bring on the warm weather.

SimonePérѐlebodysuit

Is it crazy that I want to run around the house in this? 

It's almost the perfect time of year to reach for your lingerie. No one will expect it. Besides, with the weather changing, muggy mixed with cooler temps makes it manageable. How easy would it be to throw a cashmere wrap around this anyway?

Loving this Simone Pérèle bodysuit. Curve-hugging, devastatingly sexy and easy to wear, this deco graphic embroidery on sheer tulle creates a tattoo-like effect. You can even wear this under a blouse.  

You don't have to wait for a special occasion to wear gorgeous lingerie. In fact, it's even better worn on an ordinary day.

After all, it's how it makes you feel. 

 

During my recent visit to NYC, I had the opportunity to stop in one of my very favorite designer boutiques, Brunello Cucinelli. A sea of delicious neutrals that turn the heads of even the brightest of folk. Between the fabrics, cuts and relaxed styles, I was in heaven. I want the whole collection!  

From one piece of fabulousness to the next, I was high on the rich brilliance that is the fall line. And this fur — yes, it will be mine.

Here's to the weekend (yes, thinking about it already).

The last opportunity of summer to linger with family and friends for the holiday.

No surprise, we will be hitting the lake. But it may come as a surprise that I haven't been in a bathing suit all summer long. Crazy, right?

Now that I have to muster up the confidence to rock out a suit, I feel like it's time for a new one.

I am so in love with this eggplant triangle bikini by Vix. Not that I'd be covered adequately, but it is striking. The straps are adjustable and the bottoms have flattering matelassé sides.

In typical Catherine fashion, I have far nicer kaftans and coverups than suits! Maybe that will have to change.

LisaMarieFernandezHello swimsuit season.

Though I am not ready, this is what I dream of wearing.

In my dreams, of course.

Kudos to Lisa Marie Fernandez in designing this low-rise Marie-Louise bikini made from Italian crepe — light and soft. The wrap cut not only lifts and supports, but also creates definition at the waist. The navy and cream color combo is flattering, no matter your skin tone.

And the model's tush! If you visit Net-a-Porter to grab this gorgeous bathing suit, check out the backside. It certainly gives me plenty of motivation to continue my workouts.
