this memorial day was perfect - summery with a pleasant gentle breeze, even in the heart of NYC. the whole city seemed to be moving in slow motion in order to try to soak up as much of the day as possible. here's hoping this marks the auspicious start to a summer full of carefree days.
to me, an ideal summer day is marked by luxury and simplicity in the right measures, which may be why i can't stop admiring this dolce and gabbana eyeshadow smooth eye colour quad in jewels. the luxe packaging houses neutral tones that seem plucked from a warm day's sunset; lavender pink, peach, white pearl and plum brown. these sort of colors look their best on gently sun-kissed skin, probably after a day in the sun. i imagine myself putting this gold compact into it's velvet pouch and tucking it into my weekend bag for long beach or rhode island.
jewels is just one option 10 eyeshadow quads by dolce and gabbana. i already have my eye on a 2nd color combo (hint: the one i'm eying has a mint green). $59 at sephora.com.
