Jean Lin, Editor of Otto-Otto, shared her summer style with us…
SUN OR SHADE?: Sun
THE COLOR OF SUMMER 2010: There has been an abundance of sun-kissed hues — red, orange and yellow — in retail and at trade shows this season.
ALL TIME FAVORITE VACATION LOCATION: I love traveling abroad but I have to say, there are so many beautiful destinations here in the US. I love the National Parks, like Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii, Acadia in Maine, and the Grand Canyon, which I tell everyone is a must-see in life.
MOST REFRESHING SUMMERTIME DRINK: Fresh squeezed lemonade.
PLANTED IN THE GARDEN THIS YEAR: A note that reminds me to learn how to garden.
ESSENTIAL SUMMER SONG FOR PARTY PLAYLIST: In The Beginning by K'naan. It is so upbeat that I listen to it in the dead of winter to remind me there is sunshine at the end of the tunnel.
BEST BOOK IN THE BEACHBAG: In my bag:
• A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. 5 chapters in.
• When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris. 2 chapters in.
• A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore. 15 pages in.
Jury is still out on which is best. Ask me next summer!
More to come throughout June & July!
