My mother Eve is 82 and pretty much unstoppable: she spent a good portion of the summer in classes to train her Goldendoodle to be a service dog, went to see Bjork at Hudson Yards, and when she was out in Sag Harbor, swam in the bay every single day. When it was suggested that it might not be the most prudent idea for her to ride a bike out there anymore—lest she lose her balance and take a spill—she got herself an adult tricycle, and bops around town on that. It would be a lie to say she hasn’t slowed down at all, but she hasn’t slowed down much. And when she asked me if I’d like to accompany her on a little spa vacation, my only question was whether I’d be able to keep up with her. We leave on Sunday for five days, and according to the weather forecast they’re already having some pretty chilly weather up there, so I acquired my first Patagonia jacket, which is actually a men’s model, but it was the coolest jacket in the store by far. And according to the guy who helped me, this jacket is such a big deal in Japan that it’s the only item in the store you can only buy one of.
I own this T-back top from Alala, and think it is the perfect piece for yoga.
I love a borderline-loud legging, and these have such a great Tiki vibe.
I own a version of these jersey sweats, and love them: they’re very soft, kind of silky, and supremely comfortable.
At the spa, a yoga class is offered that you do in the pool on special floaty mats, and it’s supposed to be really good for your balance—and since my balance is so very bad, I’m keen on giving it a shot. I’ll be bringing along this tank swimsuit from Solid & Striped, because it’s classic and gets the job done, and reminds me of something Lauren Hutton might have worn to the beach in 1979.
The branding on this sneaker is a little front-and-center for my taste, but I’m all for the easy (and cool) slip-on shape, and fun patterns.
