One of the things on my summer to-do list is to read more. It seems simple enough, but with jam-packed days and a busy social schedule (hello, wedding season!) it’s easier said than done. To prepare, I’ve got a stack of fashion tomes waiting for me on my coffee table. It’s a good reminder to kick up my feet and flip through a few pages whenever I have a free minute. It also doesn’t hurt that the beautiful covers work equally well as decoration! If you’re looking for some fashion (or décor) inspiration, check out my top three picks for light summer reading.
Living in Style, Rachel Zoe
In my personal opinion, Rachel Zoe can do no wrong. Her latest book is a reflection of that. Living in Style takes a whole-life approach to glamour. Yes, there is a plethora of style and beauty tips, but this volume also dives into buying art, work/life balance, and travel, all in Rachel’s unique voice.
The Dirty Side of Glamour, Tyler Shields
Ok, well, this one’s not much of a “read” (there aren’t any words), but the pictures reveal a juicy tale of fame, excess, and celebrity. Having people over? Flip it open to any page and challenge your guest to tell the story of the image. Hint—this game gets better with every sip of wine.
The Edible Selby, Todd Selby
It’s a book about food, and there are stickers! Do I need to say more? A revealing peek into some of the top restaurants and chefs is sure to inspire you to whip up something amazing in the kitchen. Or you’ll read it while you eat chips. Either way, it’s impossible not to get lost in the amazing photography and captivating handwritten interviews.
