The Art of Living...poolside prettiness

NYC sure is hot these days, almost everywhere I go I have to plan my outfit accordingly. Sigh. What's on my mind...poolside lounging. I love love love really good poolside decor. The W Westwood is one of my favorite hotels in terms of poolside decor. It's so chic, bright and fabulous. 
This weekend I am going to be stopping by one of the chicest poolsides in NYC...
The Soho House, love these black and white striped chairs...

Poolside with Slim Aarons

photography happens to be one of those hobbies that i desperately wish i had time for. to fufill that desire i regularly hop over to my local borders for hours and hours of book candy. not only do i spend most of my time in the magazines and interior design section, i find myself constantly wandering over the photography books. This book is brilliant. Slim Aarons has a wonderful collection of works. Part of the reason he is so well known is his talent for capturing the art of luxuriously lounging poolside. (lounging poolside is one of the reasons i moved out to california). i'm hoping one day i get to own an original print.
