A mood board is usually used as part of brainstorming and consists of a collection of images and texts expressing ideas and inspirations. Here at Billie, we thought up a bunch fun activities and a short list of must haves for the month.
1- The Alexander McQueen “Savage Beauty” exhibition (The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City): The hottest event of the summer, no doubt. If ever you pass by NYC this summer, be sure to check out this much anticipated retrospective on Lee McQueen’s life and most coveted designs.
2- Marni Rope Multi-Strand necklace: We really enjoy Marni accessories for the summer, they have a nautical and ethnic feel to them. Try this one in coral, the color of the season!
3- Weekend Getaways: Oh yes, long-weekend season has officially started with Victoria Day! That means weekend escapades to our favorite vacationing spots, be in the country cottage, New York, Miami or Maine.
4- Bon Iver by Bon Iver: Indie-Folk band Bon Iver has just released their third album this month and it’s on our wish list.
5- David’s Tea: This fashionable line of loose leaf teas are delicious and the iced teas make for a perfect refreshment during long summer days.
6- Monocle Magazine: A perfect beach read for the summer, Monocle is our go-to guide for tips on fashion, news in design and travel information.
7- Barefoot & Topless by Essie: This nude shade is a perfect complement to your punchy summer wardrobe.
8- Funky shades: This tortoise shell number à la Johnny Depp adds oomph to any outfit.
9- Alexis Bittar: We’ve just received he new Alexis Bittar collection at Billie, adorned with lucite, gunmetal and semi-prescious gems. So beautiful!
