I’ve been reaching for Paper Mag again lately, drawn to its unique set of design cues. It’s never overly polished — I love the bright, spray painted details and the image-heavy collages that cover its pages.
Launched in New York City in 1984, Paper began as an oversized black and white fold-out paper that was produced in the New York Times offices.
Focusing on pop culture, I like that it still has its edge — there’s a dash of the New York social and party scenes, fashion editorials that never take themselves too seriously and celebrity interviews that never get too precious.

My life is a constant contrast between light and dark, including my wardrobe.
During the fall and winter, I revert to black layers but the second summer hits, I can’t wait to pull out my collection of bright whites. Now that it’s legitimately hot in Portland, I’ve traded in my black skinny jeans and sweaters for light layers and bare legs. I just found this linen dress at Buffalo Exchange and can’t wait to pack it along to Europe next month. Easy and breezy!
A few other white items I have my eye on include: 1. House Of Holland sunglasses, 2. Giuseppe Zanotti wedge sneakers, 3. Lisa Perry beach tote, 4. New Look backpack, 5. Tomas Maier swimsuit, 6. Zara buckle heels, 7. Holiday Magazine shirt, 8. Sheinside leaf print tunic, and 9. Moschino belt.
Are there any summer wardrobe staples that you can’t live without?
