With summer vacation in full swing, many family reunions are being held across the country. I’ve never been much of a fan of the cliche family reunion shirts I’ve seen, but when I came across these options from Kin, I was sold. They’re understated and give a great sense of family history; I think they’d be the perfect addition to a reunion this summer.

It’s the season for entertaining outside, so I’m always on the hunt for some cool kitchen items that would look great outdoors and indoors.

Penguin just released new editions of some of the best of twentieth century literature, but, as dictated by Senior Editor Richard Bravery on the Penguin Blog, “Classic (backlist) books generally take the cover approach of marrying the period of the book with the aesthetic of the age. So a 1920′s book is generally twinned with Deco styling/artists. But with the Essentials we wanted, where possible, to break away from that approach, and package the books as if they were new texts, using contemporary artists to appeal to a new generation of readers.” Brideshead Revisited, pictured above, is one of my favorite cover designs of the line–but it was a tough call to choose between that and A Clockwork Orange. What do you think of melding contemporary design with less-than-contemporary literature?
As the weather has slowly gotten better and better, I’ve found myself fantasizing about hosting outdoor dinner parties during the summer. With the help of this cute Candle Lantern from Toast, the get togethers are not only well-lit and free of any buggy guests, but simply decorated with it’s pretty shape.
