My Favorite Things

Meredith Melling’s daily uniform is chic, simple, and, well, uniform. After years of trend hopping, the former Vogue editor decided to transcend fads and stick to one timeless wardrobe stable—stripes. Founding La Ligne in 2015 with two friends, Melling realized her vision of “pared down, not fussy, not precious, French-girl dressing, just a striped sweater and a pair of jeans.” With one growing brand, four kids, three rescue dogs, and a politically minded husband all under her watch, Melling keeps it classic and comfortable. She shares her top picks of the moment

Sea Star Beachwear


Mariner Slip-On

“The beaches of Martha’s Vineyard in the summer can be quite rocky and my kids are terrain immune, so I always wear rubber Birkenstocks or Sea Star’s waterproof espadrilles to keep up. ”

Fil De Vie


Indira Dress

“For summer, I love a “does a lot of stuff” dress that can be worn casually over a swimsuit and just as easily accessorized for dinner. ”

Mr. Boddington’s Studio


Japanese Pen Pouch

“I use these Quitterie “pencil cases” as an everyday wallet - fits only the essentials and keeps me from cluttering up.”

La Ligne


Odette Top

“La Ligne’s new Odette Top and Skirt is my favorite new style for summer. I love the pieces paired together as an alternative to a dress, but have also paired the top with high-waisted sailor pants, and the skirt with my favorite áwet hoodie.”


From $275.00

Brushed Flannel Bamboo Duvet

“We have Kassatex bedding throughout the house but this is the first year I discovered their beach towels thanks to Instagram (@kassatex) and Harry Styles.”


From $25.00

CBD Dog Biscuits

“In my life, I have only had rescue dogs. Right now I am the crazy NYC dog mom to three rescue dogs (from Animal Haven) and my eldest gal, Coco, has anxiety. These dog treats give her some much needed relief from the stresses of city life (which any human can relate to).”



Blue-Stripe Throw

“When I started having children with an adventurous outdoorsy guy, I realized the importance of an all purpose blanket. We keep these in our apartment and in the back of our SUV and use them for everything - warmth, cushioning, portable “dining table”, dog bed, super hero cape, you name it.”
