A little quick hello on my busy Wednesday before rushing out the door. NYC, can you please bring out the sun?! I’m taking you back to much brighter days with a perfect retro beach look that’s super easy to recreate. My trip to the Cayman Islands consisted of numerous neck scarves (by Donni Charm of course), one-piece swimsuits, and decadent earrings. When you’re out on a gorgeous island, why not add a little Old Hollywood glam to your beach look?! It’s rare I have a day to just sit by the water with my phone on silent, so I let myself indulge and play diva.
As for my beach style, I pull loads of inspiration from French beauties Brigette Bardot and Jane Birkin. Lately, I’ve been a lot more Mick Jagger meet Jackie O. when I’m traveling for work… always a little party dress dress and my smartest boy blazer. It’s so necessary to trade in all the fashion for a day at the beach… pulling inspiration from that effortlessly French feminine look never goes out of style, but adding in my own little quirks. Statement sunglasses. Easy sandals. Airy pants that work on the plane as well as at the pool. All that’s really missing here is a straw bag and my beau. As I stare out my window at the gloomy Manhattan skyline and patiently wait for summer, all I can think about is this pink and booking my next getaway.
