The Weekend Guide

hollie & harrie sombrilla!

You can have your sun and stay in the shade, too.

LOUNGE
Hollie & Harrie Sombrilla
What:
Leave it to a couple of Australians to craft the perfect alternative to the average beach umbrella. The jaunty canopy ($150) provides enough shade for four people and is 95 percent UV resistant.
Why:
Cotton Sunshirts for the wee ones are all play, no burn.
Where:
Online at hollieandharrie.com.

EAT
Le Bon Garcon
What:
Not all caramels are created equal. In keeping with French culinary tradition, the morsels ($6 for two ounces) are stirred using extra-fancy butter and no preservatives.
Why:
Salted, macadamia nut, and mango passion don’t suck.
Where:

WEAR
Piplette by Alice Ritter
What:
Outfit yourself in long, flowing dresses; lacy tops; and tunics from the sweetly bohemian Parisian designer. Plus, the low prices ($69-$139) might help start a revolution.
Why:
The Akiko romper is a study in perfection.

HANG
The Sheila Made Clothes Airer
What:
With a little help from the rope-and-pulley contraption ($135), propel your garments up to the ceiling to air-dry.
Why:
Choose from black or iron to make your apartment, loft, or home the very definition of industrial chic.
Where:

LISTEN
Turntable FM
What:
A musical chat room for friends and co-workers. Make your own/join an existing one, become a DJ, and take turns spinning jams. Deem songs “lame” or “awesome” and jabber all the while.
Why:
Like you actually have work to do all day.
Where:
Online at turntable.fm.
