Jena’s July Edit

We’re in high summer now and I’m channeling chic, classical, timeless style and colors with some cute ideas for my July 4th and other seasonal socials. Here are some of my favorite summertime recommendations.

The beauty of this white, mid length bustier dress from Dolce & Gabbana is its simplicity. With its internal boned corset for support, it follows previous iterations of this classic 1940s/50s design that D&G has dropped in other colorways and fabrics, and is just perfect for a special summer event.

For more of that movie-star retro vibe, look no further than The Row’s Milette headscarf. It’s made from silk organza and is generously sized so that you can tie, twist or drape it in multiple ways.

Designer eyewear is always a worthwhile investment. So these stylish YSL sunglasses, made from black acetate, with cat eye frames and silver-tone YSL logo hardware are a perfect choice.

Made from just six ingredients - olive oil, royal jelly, honey, propolis, pollen and beeswax - Egyptian Magic is an all-purpose skin cream suitable for hands, face and body. Use this bathroom staple as a moisturizer, eye-cream, cleanser, even a shaving balm. No wonder it’s had a cult following since its launch in 1991.

For a truly effective combination of sun protection, skincare and hydration, our holi (soleil) firming and plumping sunscreen ticks all the boxes. This tint-free, non-nano zinc oxide sunscreen with SPF 50+ blocks over 98% of UVA and UVB radiation. We ensured the formula is non-toxic and packed it with antioxidants to protect against free radicals and blue light radiation, plus silver ear mushroom extract that holds up to 500 times its weight in water. The results are a formula that soaks into the skin and leaves no trace of white cast - just a supple complexion and a gorgeous dewy glow.

Byredo lipsticks come in the most stunning shades. Here are a couple of dazzling reds that give so much style. If you like a liquid lipstick I’d recommend the matte in Fire Grace. Or if you prefer a bullet lipstick, the matte in Red Armchair is a great choice. With their high coverage and non-drying formula, both provide lasting hydration and color.

Twin lip and nail with a highly-pigmented and glossy nail varnish from Chanel.  Shade 147 INCENDIAIRE is a fresh and vibrant burst of red from its protective and long lasting Le Vernis range.

Scented like a summer garden, I love this Good Girl Gone Bad refillable perfume from Killian. With notes of apricot, orange blossom, rose, jasmin and narcissus, it’s earthy, warm and sweet.

Having suffered from sleep problems, I’ve been working for years researching a truly effective combination of ingredients so that I could create my own supplement. I’m so excited that we have now launched calm (beauty) which I formulated with two of the best baseline longevity supplements I’ve found - taurine (promotes calmness and regulates stress) and spermidine (supports cellular rejuvenation).

I added organic tart cherry juice, magnesium, vitamins, antioxidants and more, to create this magical elixir for radiant skin, healthy hair, restorative sleep, stable calm, and reduced inflammation. It comes in handy one-a-day sized sachets and tastes delicious!

Whether you have a special someone in your life, or are still hoping to meet them, this meditation for attracting and being in love from Deepak Chopra takes just seven minutes and leaves you feeling positive, calm and confident.

To add a touch of charm to the dinner table once more, I’ve found these hand painted shrimp dinner plates. The set of four is part of a collection created by Lauren Santo Domingo in collaboration with Italian ceramicist Solimene Art.

If you’ve never been to your local Farmers Market or Farm Shop, I’d really recommend it. I love the Brentwood Farmers Market - it’s a joy to choose the freshest fruit, vegetables and flowers, knowing exactly where the produce comes from and how it was grown, all whilst supporting the local farming community. It’s open 9am - 2pm every Sunday - grab a fresh juice while you’re there!
